Why We Do What We Do

Hey Adventurous Coaches!

We combined forces nearly a decade ago, fuelled by a shared passion for evidence-based coaching and the business of transforming people.

As coaches, we experienced firsthand the importance of really digging in and identifying our unique perspective and approach.

It didn't just transform our practices, it helped us transform our clients--in a way that felt authentically "us."

The problem was, we also wanted to help people launch thriving businesses, without having to squeeze themselves into someone else's blueprint for success.

The solution? We broke rank and designed our own program.

A life coach training intensive that helps people unlock the power of their own story and hone their business skills.

So, the only question now is: What's your coaching story gonna be?
