Of all the things I do, the one thing I love doing the most is helping people discover their life purpose. I believe that all of us, instinctively, all once knew what that purpose was, but that purpose somehow got drowned out by the noise of everyone else’s wonderful plans for their lives. That is why two to three decades later they wake up in the middle of what we call a mid-life crisis. They suddenly realize that they have not been living their dream for their life, they have been living everybody else’s dream for their life and they go out in a desperate search for significance.

When I am coaching a client, I often ask them what is commonly called the “million dollar question.” “If money were no object and you were guaranteed success what would you pursue? Moreover, what would that look like?”

I want to provide life purpose coaching services specifically to older teens. My desire is to provide them with the tools necessary to empower them to be able to chart their own pathway to purpose from very early in life. This would enable them to avoid that multiple decade period of disappointment and dissatisfaction so many experience before finally discovering what truly can bring them lifelong fulfillment. Instead of being in an identity crisis state when these teens reach that mid-life state, they would be better prepared to invest in the next generation—the only true way to leave a lasting legacy of significance.
