My name is Nick and I have been an entrepreneur since 2013. After a tough divorce in 2018, I have dedicated myself to personal development and helping others. I have since read over 75 books, worked with Robbins Coaching and have gone through several of Tony's programs.
As a Christian certified professional life coach I can help individuals get to the next level whether it be for your business, individually or relationally. With my expertise in cognitive behavior, I can take you from where you are to where you want to be. I do more than merely ask questions. I used exercises, strategies and accountability to help you get results.

What is a life coach?
Simply put, a life coach helps a client define exactly what they want to experience, feel, or achieve in their life that is different from where they are now. The coach then utilizes a set of tools and assignments to assist their client in honing the self-insight and skills necessary to make greater progress toward those goals.
What can a life coach do for you?
A life coach provides PERSPECTIVE and UNDERSTANDING
A life coach is external to your situation. He or she does not see you through all your history. A life coach allows you to discuss your dreams without judgement and helps you find the answers you need to reach them.
A person who has been around you for a long time will not be able to get that perspective.
For instance, say you tried something before and it did not exactly work according to plan, they would be tempted to say “Look, are you going to try this again? Don’t you remember the last time you tried?” They don't mean to keep you from your dream, they are actually trying to protect you and don't realize they are actually holding your back. After all, we learn from mistakes!
A life coach is able to look at the situation with fresh eyes and then can open up possibilities. This is a key advantage of Life coaching.
Of course, there will be discussions between you and the life coach to initially create attainable and realistic goals. A coach will bring awareness around all steps that need to be taken and the level of commitment required for you to reach that goal.
Life coaching provides ACCOUNTABILITY
Another key part of life coaching is holding you accountable for what you need to do. This is part of the core competency of a life coach. Once planning is completed, a life coach will ensure you are being held accountable for your next item on your action list.
It is important to find a credible life coach or you will likely only be hiring a “friend” you pay to have a good chat with from time to time. The life coach needs to ensure you are progressing towards your goal!
A life coach provides SUPPORT
Your life coach will be onboard with your dream, goal or improvement objective. That is the advantage of having someone external who believes in you and what you are doing. It is hard, or even impossible to support someone when you don’t believe in what they are trying to achieve.
Week in, week out, you know your life coach will be here for you, supporting you during your journey, helping you brainstorm any solution for the challenges your project will face. It is important to understand a life coach does not consult and give you answers but walks you through finding the answers yourself by asking the proper questions.
For this reason, your coach needs to be skilled, positive and competent. You should look forward to your discussions with your coach, as they will pick you up when you are going through a tough patch.
As part of this support, the life coach will ensure you stay focused. Because of the difficulty we all have to focus on something we don’t have to do, we need a coach to guide and support us!
Life coaching provides you with STRUCTURE
“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” This has been said by many and although cliche, it is true. To overcome this you need structure.
After initially working with your life coach to set out a plan, your coach should help you keep on track and will provide you with a structure. This structure will give you the confidence you need to reach your goal. You will have milestones coming and you will look back on past achievements. All this will feed into your motivation and will give you great confidence!
When working with a coach that does not provide structure or accountability, you run the risk of just spinning your wheels, going around in circles.
Now that you know some ways a life coach can help you, I would like to give you a special offer.
