I help young professionals become purpose-driven leaders and creators.

What is Purpose?

Everyone talks about it. Everyone wants it. You certainly know when you don’t have it. But what is it exactly? Don’t get bogged down with overly intellectual or woo-woo definitions.

A Simple Way to Understand Purpose

  • Purpose is a source of meaning and fulfillment.

  • Understanding your purpose gives you meaning; living your purpose gives you fulfillment.

  • Discovering and living your unique purpose provides you with meaning and fulfillment to the highest degree.

  • Aligning your daily actions to your unique purpose is what it means to live a purpose-driven life.

Purpose makes life better and helps you succeed.

Scientists and researchers have been studying this for a while now, and it’s been proven: Living a purpose-driven life makes you more successful, feel more fulfilled, and live a longer, better life. That innate curiosity and drive you have to find your purpose isn’t just about self-actualization, it’s also just plain practical.

Do Meaningful Work That Pays

 

Your purpose is the most efficient way to level up.

Why? Because embarking on the journey to understand and live your purpose requires you to grow in the exact ways you need to become the greatest version of yourself. And when that happens in the context of your organization or your community, you naturally and quickly become a leader: a person who others feel inspired and moved by. Why meander your life away when you can get on the best path now?

TBH, there are many ways to “get ahead” in life, but they usually involve hurting others or yourself. Status-driven strategies erode trust and compromise your integrity. Reaction-driven strategies keep you stuck in repetitive fear-based patterns. Money-driven strategies dehumanize you and lead to an empty, lonely life in the long term. Approval and security-driven strategies suck, too (trust me, I know).

Purpose-driven strategies generate wisdom, growth, and fulfillment for you and others around you.

Coaching saves you time and heartache. Don’t do it alone.

It’s possible to find your purpose and become a purpose-driven leader through trial and error, but it might just take you your whole life. Sure, you can Google “How to find your purpose” and get lots of overly-simplistic, woo-woo or religious advice. But instead of drinking the ocean for a few fish, you can sit down to a 10-course sushi dinner.

By Guiding You Step-by-Step

  • Let me focus on customizing the process for you while you focus on the growing and experiencing.

  • Laser-focus your energy doing things that directly relate to discovering your purpose.

By Bringing Out Your Best

  • Just like sports coaching, I help you get farther faster than you can go on your own.

  • I become one of your biggest fans, cheerleaders, and champions. You have someone in your corner 100%.

  • One of my gifts is being an expert at seeing others’ gifts. And I will see yours, too.

By Providing Accountability

  • Have the structure and motivation to follow through on actions that might be uncomfortable at first.

  • I hold you accountable, but I never judge or shame.

By Evoking Insights & Transformation

  • My job is to get you to consistently blow your own mind.

  • I help you systematically get to know how you work and how to hear your intuition (a requirement for finding your purpose!).

  • I provide you with tools to fundamentally change the way you relate to your fears, limiting beliefs, and conditioned patterns.

 

Your company can’t give you your purpose.

Purpose isn’t just a feel-good nice-to-have. It’s a market-shaping behemoth. Purpose-driven companies outperform the S&P 500 by 400% over a 10-year period. And since 70% of young professionals want to live their purpose at work, companies are scrambling to become purpose-driven, so they can attract people just like you to work for them.

Companies drop the ball in one critical place: they aren’t doing a thing to help you connect your purpose with theirs.

Except they’re dropping the ball in one critical place: they aren’t doing a thing to help you connect your purpose with theirs. And you’re not asking them to. Because you believe that your company can simply hand you your purpose.

But they can’t. No one can.

So when they show a crack in their integrity or do something you disagree with, you feel the first sting of disappointment. After a few more setbacks you become completely disillusioned with the whole enterprise.

So you start looking for another company you can believe in.

So when they show a crack in their integrity, you start looking for another company you can believe in.

Except when you look out at all those other companies spouting their purpose messages, you have trouble trusting them, too. Instead of risking disappointment again, you allow disillusionment with the entire industry to set in.

You become a clock-in, clock-out worker who only shows up for the free snacks and unlimited vacation. You complain about annoying colleagues that “drank the kool-aid” and do the bare minimum to collect your year-end-bonus.

You can’t reconcile your hypocrisy, so you rant about how f*ed up the industry is and slowly become a parody of your generation.

I know how you feel. And I know what’s down that road: a massive wake-up call thrust upon you at middle age or sooner. But that doesn’t have to happen.

The mistake you made was expecting your company to fill your purpose needs. But that was never their job to begin with. It’s yours.

The mistake you made was expecting your company to fill your purpose needs. No company is perfect, and when they made mistakes, you lost more than just your belief in them, you lost your sense of purpose, too.

Except it was never their job to give that to you. It’s yours.

The bottom line: the only way you can fully engage in your company’s purpose is if you discover your own.

When you connect your purpose with theirs, that’s when you start to put some actual skin the game. That’s when you start walking your talk and become the changes you wish to see. That’s when you stop playing small and start stepping up.

That’s when you truly level up.
