Helping you get to where you want to go in life, faster.
The world is screaming at you, like a monstrous wave, coming faster, a million miles per second. Your teeth are sweating. You’re in a place you’ve never been before in your life. Impossible decisions. Immovable objects. Unstoppable forces. Problems abound, financial, career, health, relationships, life.
How are you supposed to perform at the world-class caliber level you’ve worked your ass off to achieve, in spite of this seemingly never-ending stress?
That knot in your stomach isn’t in your stomach any longer. The cords have wrapped themselves around your bones, up your neck, into your head, down your arms and legs, and into your toes. Someone is on the other end of that rope, both feet propped up on your back, and they’re pulling as hard as they possibly can to tighten that invisible chain, attempting to collapse you into an immovable ball.
How did we get here?
The people in this world who achieve incredible things, and people who just want to live a happy carefree life, have to go through this wretched pain. A hero’s journey.
If any of this sounds familiar, you might just need to find yourself a life, wellness, or executive coach.
You could call it a teacher, a therapist, a mentor, or a coach, but in the end we all need a little help getting to the next level. That could be that hyper-competitive class with the bomb teacher who helps get you into the League of Ivy. Or maybe someone who teaches you how to be empathetic to your colleagues, removing the roadblock to the promotion you’ve been passed over a few times. Or, dealing with some deep-rooted pain that’s existed since childhood. Of course, it could be as simple as getting the confidence you need to go out and tackle something that seems just slightly out of reach.
If your arm is broken, you go to the hospital and get a “coach” to fix it. But in all other areas of life, there really isn’t much of that. Isn’t that sad?
We can do better.
So we put together a list of big name people who’ve gone an alternative route, and used it to great effect. Lets just all stop adulting and live like kids again. Life would be so much more fun.

The Psychological Benefits of Writing Regularly — “When you attempt to envision a writer, I imagine many of you see a quirky recluse, hunched over a desk in some cabin, crumpled paper strewn about as they obsessively work on the next great American novel. But writing is so much more. Prose is thought put to page, which makes all of us writers, even if we don’t have the chops to tangle with Faulkner. In most cases, writing is most useful as a tool for thinking, expression, and creativity; cabin-dwelling novelists be damned.”
