With Every Great Purpose Comes Passion…and Challenge

Beware of the Lure of the “Easy Life”

“The digital nomad/laptop millionaire infomercial of the hot couple sitting on the beach sipping Mai-Tai’s and checking their PayPal account every 3rd drink only to find thousands of dollars rolling right in.”

“Going through our coaching sessions is like taking my car through the car wash. The car wash gets all the dirt and bugs off the windshield, making it clearer to see what’s ahead of me. I’m the one who still has to drive the car in my own direction. But at least now I can see where I’m going and feel refreshed. I have so much more clarity about my career path and my path in life.”

Don’t Play the Comparison Game

“You may never get to see or know the bigger impact your small role on this trip has made. But it’s much bigger than you think.”

Nothing is Wasted

Embrace Challenge

“Airplanes don’t lift off until they reach the end of the runway. When it seems like you’re at the end of your road, that’s when things are about to take off!” Pastor Filipe Santos
