Who the hell is Bob Holdsworth?
Great question. I’m a lucky husband, dad to awesome twin boys, successful entrepreneur, veteran paramedic, avid reader, beach lover, and an accomplished traveler who occasionally enjoys a Tito’s & Tonic with a fine cigar. My life ... simple ... yet rich and on my own terms.
I’ve spent my entire adult life helping people, working in emergency medicine as a paramedic and running my own coaching/consulting practice which has allowed me to work with hundreds of people from all over the world. I am not your typical coach. In fact, a client once described my style as a “head-on collision between business consultant and life coach”. I regard that as high praise, it means I’m doing my job, which is all about getting you the results you want.
There is nothing more fulfilling for me than to work with a client and see them get unstuck, develop new strategies for personal or business growth and enjoy a better life because of the work that we’ve done together. I view my role as a coach to be a catalyst for your empowerment, clarity and growth.
What I believe.
I believe that success is individually defined. What’s right for me might not be for you. I believe that you are entitled to create the life and business of your dreams and that you can achieve everything that you are willing to put your mind and sweat into.
My motto: Always live life & do business on your own terms!
What to expect working with me.
Hiring me as your coach, my three areas of specialty.
Personal & Life Coaching
Whatever your previous ‘story’, you have all the freedom you want to create a new one – starting now. It is never too late to get a fresh start.
The coaching process is completely focused on you. Where you are. What’s going on in your life. I can help you create strategies to break free from limiting beliefs and work through the challenges that you may be facing.
Confidential, supportive, future-focused, positive and all about you, a coaching session is an opportunity to take a deep breath, hear yourself think, and focus on what you really want from your life.
If you’re running a business, or want to, it’s important not to let it run you. The freedom you envisioned when you started seems like a mirage in the desert…it should be right…over…there, but it isn’t. It’s not your fault, you were handed a bad map, faulty instructions and a set of unrealistic expectations.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that I can get you back on track.
As a serial entrepreneur myself, I’ve been fortunate to have successfully grown three multi-million-dollar businesses, including one that boasted a 95% staff retention and a 93% client retention rate over a 28-year period.
I’ve worked with business owners in 46 different industries ranging in size from home-based solo-preneurs to Fortune 100 companies on ways to effectively grow and how to profitably separate themselves from the pack.
My business coaching specialties include start-ups, strategic planning, one-on-one mindset coaching for small business owners, new idea development and helping leaders review, refocus and reset their organizations for greater success.
First responder coaching
Coaching first responders is a specialized area that few life coaches can offer.
Most coaches, and even many therapists, don’t understand what we’ve gone through, what we’ve seen and how frustrating it is to not be able to find someone who understands and is willing to simply listen. I bring more than 40 years’ experience as a first responder to the table having worked as an EMT/paramedic, firefighter, 9-1-1 dispatcher and corrections officer. Let’s talk.
Nothing happens unless YOU take action and connect with me. I’m offering you a complimentary, no obligation 30-minute Discovery Session so that we can to get to know each other.

"He helped me recognize a major blind spot in my thinking and enabled me to reconsider options that I had previously dismissed largely due to biased emotional reasons, rather than practical ones." -Jen C., KY
"Bob really helped me gain clarity around why I do what I do, my story and how that could impact other people, I would have never noticed, but he reflected how my energy changed when I talked about the things that I really am passionate about. Bob has a calming presence and gave me the space to voice what I’m really dreaming of." -Kayla, CO
"My session with Bob is exactly what I needed as I am at a transition point in starting a new career. Bob guidance allowed me to process my thoughts into actionable items and sparked great ideas for me to develop my business as a coach. Bob has a great way of being encouraging while challenging you in moving forward.” -Kathleen D., CT
"Just a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate your guidance. Although I don’t normally make a point to write thank you’s, I didn’t want to let this opportunity pass without taking the time to let you know what has taken place as a result of our discussions. Putting the simple suggestions that you have provided us with into practice has proved to be an invaluable tool." -Jeff C., CT
"Bob has an incredible ability to hear the deeper meaning of what I was saying without me having to say it. He is a listening ninja!" -Deb A., WA
