WHO’S THIS GUY

First off, I’m not that guy up there. But I connect with that picture in a very big way. Why? Because I’ve spent the last two decades looking at a wall full of things I wanted to do and just staring off into space in wonder. I’ve been a corporate trainer, a manager, a stay at home dad and a small business owner. Every step of the way, I’ve come back to me looking at everything I wanted to do with a sense of excitement but fear, the fear that comes from being overwhelmed and not being able to figure out what’s next. And so I decided to figure that out.

As a part of that process, I’ve changed jobs several times over the past two decades but the positions I’ve enjoyed have always been about helping people get to where they want to be. I’ve coached and trained and managed people to positions and situations far beyond my own lot in life and this is something I’ve never been more proud of. I’m an intently focused person who doesn’t have a first gear. Instead I like to dive headlong into everything, throwing myself passionately into my work as well as the things in life that don’t come with a paycheque.

I’m a runner, a gamer, an ice hockey player, a public speaker, a field hockey player, a coach, a father, a husband, an entrepreneur, and a community builder. Sound familiar? Most of us wear a thousand hats a day and are pulled in a million different directions. I didn’t like the pulls from every direction so I decided that I needed to change the way that I did things.

So I dug into every single process and program that I could get my hands on. I took courses and “masterclasses”, attended (and spoke) and conferences and workshops, and watched more webinars than I feel comfortable telling you. But I always felt like things didn’t connect with me. And then an opportunity presented itelf. 

Someone I knew from the creative community was looking for someone to help with their social media process (another hat that I wear) but was also looking for someone to help them identify a career path that would lead them to success and happiness. So I put on another hat. During this coaching process, the client received a new job offer with a company she really wanted to work for and was incredibly pleased with the process. So, I wrote the process down and the core of that became my book and my coaching method. Since that point I’ve helped people find new jobs, new paths in life and make discoveries about who they are and what they really want out of life. 

That’s me. Who are you? 

My Thoughts On The World

Let the Elephants Run

Let the Elephants Run

When I was in junior high, I spent a lot of time listening to Moist. Silver was one of my all time favourite albums and everytime my best friend and I headed to his cottage, it was in rotation with Throwing Copper and August and Everything After. I got older and never...

You Do You

You Do You

This is one of my favourite things to say these days. I find it to be increasing relevant and important and poignant and more and more I've started to think, "Isn't this basically the only thing?" We spend so much of our time and our energy focused on what everyone...

Ignore The Haters

Ignore The Haters

That's what we all need to do, right? No one understands what you're all about. No one knows what you did. No one knows where you came from. How you made it. Who. You. Are. They're just hating. At least that's what we keep telling ourselves. But it's a big fat lie....

You Got Rich Rolled

You Got Rich Rolled

That's not a spelling error. I did that on purpose. If you don't know who Rich Roll is, it's a pretty cool story. But I'm not going to tell you about Rich Roll. I'm going to tell you about me, reading Rich Roll's book, Finding Ultra. You see, I got this book for...
