Offering 1 on 1 Personal and Executive Coaching

Whether you want to get out of debt or ace that job interview. Maybe you want to travel more or you need the courage to start your own business. Perhaps you need support repairing that relationship with a friend or you want the step by step tips on how to leave a desk job you can't tolerate anymore. Among all these topics and much, much more, there's a plan that can get you there.

I've Done it. I'll Show You How.

I Took Charge of My Life. I'll Help You Do The Same.

I've been a featured author, interview or subject in more than 100 news outlets, including the New York Times, CNN, Focus on the Family, The Huffington Post, and Fox Business. I've been focused on living my life to the fullest and that means not-conforming or giving in to how we're told we're "supposed to live." Too many people today are struggling to get by, saddling themselves with mountains of debt, jobs they hate, a lack of confidence, and the inability to challenge themselves to realize their dreams or take on that next adventure.

- Some of the questions and comments posed to me lately -

It's Time

Stop Surviving Your Life. Start Living It.

1 on 1 Consulting & Personalized Coaching

  • Brush Aside Doubters

    I decided I wanted to travel more so I did. I disregarded everyone who told me, “You can’t do that.” I simply picked up and took a year to travel around the world.

  • Challenge Yourself

    I woke up one day and thought, “I think I want to learn how to fly airplanes.” So I did. I’m now an officially certified pilot.

  • Devotion to Something New

    I learned and mastered frequent flyer & hotel points. I earned over ONE MILLION miles and points, and redeemed for more than $25,000 in free travel… just last year alone.

  • Eliminate Debt

    I saw too many of my friends still struggle with student loans 10 or 15 years after leaving school. I paid mine off completely, less than 3 years after graduating.

  • Find Your Voice

    Some friends asked me one day if I’d be interested in collaborating on a book. So I did and I’m a published author.

  • Go for Greatness

    I’d run one, single 5k in college but thought a half marathon sounded like a great new challenge. I’ve now completed 3 of them.

I Can Help You Achieve All of This as Well

Above all, I've done all of these things not only for myself, but I've personally coached and advised others on how to do the same in their lives as well. From getting out of debt to having the courage to change jobs, to learning how to travel for cheap or even free, to generally having more confidence or getting your life on track. It's all possible.

And while I wish I had the time to answer every person who asks questions like the ones above, there are only so many hours in the day. Take advantage of a coaching session however and you'll receive personal access allowing me to devote my time and energy specifically to helping you achieve your goals.

1 on 1 Consulting & Personalized Coaching
Rates & Packages

Sometimes having a direct line to someone with experience and a proven record of success is exactly what you need to get over the hurdle that's holding you back. I offer personalized coaching via email, phone, video chat, social networking and at time face to face. Without fail, every time... every...single... time... I've been able to work with a client and put together a plan to completely change their outlook on their lives. And whether its, "Steve I'm stuck and uncertain about what to do next" or "Steve there's nothing else I can do, I've tried everything!" Every single time, I've been able to help that person.

If you are interested in personalized 1 on 1 consulting then I'm looking forward to helping you reach your full potential. Options include:

  • Exploratory Call
  • Hourly Rate
  • Travel Reward / Booking Service
  • Monthly Retainer Packages
  • Exploratory Call

    If you’re not sure if private coaching is right for you, I’d recommend a phone or google hangouts call to see if we’re a good fit. This is a 10-15 minute call where you tell me a bit about yourself and what you’re looking to achieve. I’ll share with you some of the tools and techniques I’ll use during our coaching relationship and, as I said, see if we’re a good fit for further work together.

    There is a very small fee for this call. And even though the fee is low, the reason I charge for this call is because from my experience those who truly value coaching are those who realize they’ll have to make an investment in themselves.

    The same as you want to ensure I can help you, I want to ensure I’m working with someone who value private coaching and understands they’ll need to invest time, energy and resources into achieving their goals.

    The cost of the call is minor, but from my experience I know it serves as a gatekeeper to filter through those individuals who are truly serious about reaching their full potential and those who are not. People who get free things, rarely value free things. If we decide to move forward on coaching and you select a retainer or package rate, I’ll even deduct the cost of the Exploratory call from your first month’s charge, making the Exploratory call completely free.

    You have very little to lose and an entire new outlook on life to gain.

     

  • Hourly Rate

    For those looking for quick, direct help on a specific problem or issue, sometimes an hour is all you need. This option gives you a one on one session, a single hour at a time. If you’re still on the fence about personal coaching but still a bit unsure about the investment, you may want to consider purchasing a single hour to see if coaching is right for you.

     

  • Travel Reward / Booking Service

    Have you found a great offer, seen me post an amazing last minute deal or want to use your miles and points to reserve a plane ticket or hotel? But maybe you’re unsure how to manage the process or jump through the (sometimes MANY) hoops to get the deal?

    I’ll manage the full process for you, ensuring you pay the least amount and/or maximizing your points and miles so none are ever wasted. It’s a one time charge with no recurring expenses or commitment necessary.

     

  • Monthly Retainer Package

    For virtually all clients, this is the coaching option I recommend as for the vast majority of those who realize they’d benefit from coaching, reaching the end goal will take time. And whether it’s getting out of debt, learning about investments, repairing damaged relationships, or planning out a life-long dream, you’ll need to devote your time and energy to the plan to get you on track.

    Most coaching clients work with their coach from 6-12 months, and some work continually to keep that motivation going. The monthly retainer is a single month fee paid at the beginning of the month and helps both client and coach draft a plan that offers structure and consistency.

    There’s no concern on your end about getting caught up in running out of time or being worried about the lengthy email exchange you and I had that might be eating into your hours. It also allows you to set a consistent item in your monthly budget. Monthly retainers require a minimum three month agreement.

    The monthly retainer is available in two versions. With your monthly retainer you receive either:

     

    – Standard –
    • Four, 60-minute sessions via phone or skype/google hangout, each month

    • Unlimited email support for the month 

    – Premium –
    • Five, 90-minute sessions via phone or skype/google hangout, each month

    • Unlimited “Tactical Sessions” for the month
    • Priority support via google chat and facebook messenger
    • Priority unlimited email support for the month

    ** “Tactical Sessions” are brief, 5-10 minute phone calls that take place in between sessions. They’re best used if you need a motivating pick me up, or if you have a specific question that you know can be resolved in a couple minutes, but you can’t wrap your head around how to do it. They’re the perfect way to keep yourself moving and active in preparation for your next or between email exchanges.

Client Testimonials

  • Amanda: Digital Director & Public Relations Specialist

    “Working with Steve has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Yes, you can read about these principles online, but to have the support of someone –especially someone like Steve–who is already living them to help you along the way, is completely worth it.

    I’ve made so many huge strides in my life; I relocated across country, I completed a 30-day Bikram yoga challenge, I took up improv and I landed the perfect job and moved into a new home in my favorite part of townMy overall well-being and happiness level is by far so much healthier than where I was feeling stuck, lost and confused 6-9 months ago.”

  • AJ: Realtor

    “Like most people I’d always thought travel and vacations were, ‘just too expensive.’ But after just a few conversations with Steve, he pushed and encouraged me to think outside the box. He didn’t merely throw some ideas at me, but provided me the actual step by step knowledge about how to travel for cheap and often even free! I can’t emphasize that enough.

    He didn’t merely offer general ideas or website links. He stayed with me and walked me through the process to ensure I was successful. In just the last year alone I’ve earned hundreds of thousands of free airline and hotel points, enough to virtually cover the expenses of taking my kids on their first ever trip to Disney World and 3 days at a condo on Clearwater Beach.”

  • Ryan: Programs Manager, Non-Profit Organization

    “Steve was instrumental in building my skill-sets to secure an amazing new career path.  Just one month ago, I was struggling to find a job that made me happy.  Steve did an incredible job in helping me define my goals, prepare for interviews, and create a plan for success.

    He took time to walk me through what a successful interview, resume, and portfolio looks like.  The difference in my interview skills was like night and day after his coaching.  I nailed several interviews, some of them were the best of my life.  This led directly to a great job offer at a thriving organization within TWO weeks, helping me secure the best financial situation I’ve ever been in. The principles on Steve’s website are great, but having someone who has lived them, and on your side is invaluable.  It will lead to success if you follow the game plan.”

  • Kate: President, Construction Firm

    “I never imagined I would climb the Great Wall, sink my toes in the sand of the beaches in South East Asia or stroll the canals in Venice. Through Steve’s encouragement and travel reward expertise I was able to have all of these dreams come true. Without his guidance I would have never been able to afford the possibilities of this once in a lifetime trip.”

  • Nena: Executive Director, Non-Profit Organization

    Steve has more integrity than anyone I know. He has an excellent work ethic and sets (and meets) high expectations for himself. As my organization prepared to print important literature for our members and donors, Steve offered helpful advice when I asked him for guidance. I ended up using his marketing company to handle the print itself and the results were exceptional. I’ve definitely enjoyed working with Steve!”

  • Michelle: Legislative Director, 501(c)(3)

    “Steve helped me unlock my potential – not only with my career, but with life opportunities. Thanks to his advice, in the last few months, I traveled internationally for the first time in my life (which was a life changing experience in and of itself), signed up for a watercolor class and found ways to cut items in my budget (to help pay for it all). If you’re looking not only for job satisfaction, but for life satisfaction, I highly recommend talking to Steve.”

Commonly Asked Questions

Q: What Will We Talk About?

A: Anything you want. Whether formulating a plan to pay off debt, learn a new skill, or bounce ideas of someone willing to listen. Some popular subjects I cover with clients are:

• Finances
• Learning New Talents or Skills
• Career Changes
• Faith and Purpose
Time Management
• Travel Rewards & Points
• De-Cluttering & De-Stressing
• Health and Fitness
• Gaining Confidence
• Setting (and Achieving) New Goals

Q: What if I'm on the Fence about Spending Money?

A:You're on this page because you've identified that something in your life needs to change. Something needs to improve from what you're going through now. So you've taken the first step, that's good.

Now is the time to invest. Your coaching sessions need to be looked at as an investment into yourself. From athletes to CEO's to Hollywood actors, people who seek to be top in their field devote their time, money and resources into programs that better them at their craft.

 

Q: What Will I Gain From a Personal Coaching Session?

A: If you want to improve your life and consistently hit your goals, you need to work at it. You aren't going to wake up tomorrow and suddenly be out of debt, have your dream job, improve your relationship with friends or family, or be on a beach somewhere. If you want those things you need to take the steps to get there.

Personalized training and coaching sessions will supercharge that initial confidence. Along with feedback on what you're dealing with and tips on taking charge, you'll begin to realize and achieve those goals you thought would always otherwise be unattainable.

Q: How Long Would You Recommend We Work Together?

A: I'd recommend you consider a structured coaching relationship of between 6-12 months. If you're on this page then you've acknowledged you can benefit from private coaching. Remember that coaching isn't always just a quick fix. It's designed to to help you improve your life, build your confidence, and give you the tools to take on that next challenge.

Q: How Have You Determined That Rate For Personal Coaching?

A: Just as I want to help you get more of the things you value, I have the same desire for myself. My time is valuable to me, and the time I'm spending with you in exchange for dollars is time I'm taking from another task or activity I value.

At some point that hourly rate will change, however for now I believe it's an amount that every person can afford. And while there is plenty of free content as I mentioned, programs like Live Smart Academy membership (coming soon) and the individual coaching sessions are specially tailored to those who want more direct access and more personalized results.

Q: Which Package Should I Choose?

A: That depends on what problem you're facing. For some people, an hour or two may be all that's needed to correct a specific problem. For most people I recommend a monthly retainer with at least the minimum 3 month commitment

Q: Why does the retainer have a minimum 3 month commitment?

A: While I recommend clients plan for a 6-12 month coaching program, I do require a 3 month commitment for those selecting the monthly retainer. I limit the number of clients I work with at one time in order to provide the highest level of service to each one.

Because of this, the number of clients I take on each month is small, and I want to ensure I am working with those most dedicated to the program. The 3 month commitment is a handshake/"gentlemen's" agreement, there's nothing to sign and no contracts and you can switch between the Standard and Premium rates as often as you'd like.

What are You Waiting For?

  • Make Money

    From learning what to say in an interview, to negotiating a higher salary, to starting your own small business, buying stock or property, or selling things you have around the house. I’ll give you the tools to turn your earning potential into overdrive.

  • Save Money

    When you think of all the things you’ve wasted money on, you cringe. I know I do. Imagine if you’d saved it or invested it. Don’t worry, it’s never too late to start. Whether it be cutting down your cell phone bill or getting out of debt. I’ll show you how to cut expenses, reduce your costs and save for the future.

  • Time Management

    You can always get more money, but you can never get more time. Your time is valuable, finite, and by far your most precious resource. I know that simple tips can give you extra minutes or even hours each day. Work smart, not hard just for the sake of it.

  • Health, Fitness & Mental Wellness

    “I’ll start tomorrow” is everyone’s mantra when it comes to fixing their mind or body. Your health comprises much more than just your exercise routine. From eating better to getting more sleep to removing toxic people from your life to making peace with God, family, or yourself. I’ll help you remove the worry from your life and enjoy everything it has to offer.

  • Travel More

    “I’d love to travel, but…” is the excuse of the day. I can tell you from personal experience that travel doesn’t have to be expensive, stressful, or difficult to plan. Not only that, but it can often be done virtually for free!  I’ll show you how to travel without breaking the bank or even realize your dreams of location freedom by being able to work anywhere in the world.

  • Challenge Yourself & Gain Confidence

    Get a new job, learn a skill, set a goal, what is it you’ve, “Always wanted to do?” Achieve your goals and realize your dreams. Boost your self-confidence and you’ll become a completely new person. You can literally do anything you want with your entire life… Why would you waste a single second doing something else?

Where Do You Want to Be in 20 Years?

More importantly, what steps are you taking to get there?

Look at the people around you and ask yourself if you'd be happy being just like everyone else for the rest of your life. Ask yourself where you want to be at 40 or 50 or 60. Do you still want to be struggling with money, forced to go into the office everyday, never having traveled, always being tired and run down, never having done any of the things on your list of goals or dreams?

You're not going to all of a sudden wake up and have all your problems disappear. You need to take the steps to change them. You CAN change your life and you CAN have the freedom you want five, 10 and 20 years from now. But it's a heck of a lot easier to have that freedom if you act now than if you wait years or decades longer to make a plan.

It's time to change things. Let's start now.
