Unfortunately for us parents, there is no parenting manual that comes with our kids.  A lot of times, we just need to grind through whatever trials and tribulations our families go through.  We give up our dreams to support our kids‘ dreams and have no energy left for ourselves at the end of the day.

Similarly, as a high school, college, or university student you’re trying to figure out life.  When you hear statistics like 71% of Millennials are not engaged or actively disengaged at work (Gallup.com), you may question how you want to earn a living and whether you’re doing the right thing.

The Bible suggests that we should “Make plans by seeking advice; if you wage war, obtain guidance.”

Clearly, we wage war on life every day, so having a trustworthy source to help plan your battle strategy is a wise decision.

I can be that trustworthy source for you.

Some of the reasons people seek my help:

  • Supplement, or even replace, a tutor
  • Supplement home schooling
  • Want to “change it up” or “change direction”
  • Bored or frustrated at work
  • Partner to help you slog through some tough stuff

You know, I can almost guarantee that I’ve been where you’re at right now. 

Work sucks.  School sucks.  Exhausted – no energy to do the things you want to do. 

Life coaching changed that for me.

I had learned many things about human behavior, managing people, and coaching youth over the years, but life coaching was the skill set that brought it together for me.  I am now more aware of my surroundings and how they may affect my decisions and behavior, and I am living on purpose.  What I mean by that is I choose my thoughts, actions, and plans to achieve a specific purpose.

Prior to obtaining my Professional Life Coach certification I earned a degree in Business Administration (after switching from Computer Science – thanks Dad!),  I earned my Project Management Professional certification, I have coached hockey for almost ten years – working with kids from ages seven to seventeen.  Lastly, but certainly not least, my wife and I are raising two teenage boys – that eat enough for four.

I encourage you to contact me right now to discuss your future.  I know you have much to offer. I would love to be part of putting your plans together and supporting you along the way.
