I have been doing the work of alignment for over 20 years, from ministry to coaching, from my own businesses to my clients’ businesses, from my personal life to the lives of thousands of people I have guided and served.
As a young adult I was driven to become a two-time All-American collegiate wrestler while obtaining my bachelors and masters degrees in engineering from Northwestern University. I went on to co-found, grow, and lead a successful construction consulting company that I sold to my business partner in 2016.
Somewhere along the way I lost myself, but experienced a divine intervention to re-set me onto the path of purpose. From that point I turned my focus back to serving others and pursued multiple coaching certifications, including executive coaching through the Weatherhead School of Management. I also continued my own inner work and fought to align the deepest roots of my soul, all while leading my family on a “wilderness” journey across the country and back again.
Through it all I have (re)discovered who I am and strive to live my life in authenticity and alignment every day. This is the basis from which I coach and guide business owners: I Live What I Lead.
WHAT I DO
My mission is to help business owners grow their businesses through holistic alignment
My focus is to guide you to align the misaligned roots in your soul, removing blockages and clearing a pathway to your heart, the divine part of your being, so that you can access the power, clarity, virtue, and purpose within to become the highest version of yourself in business and in life.
My process is holistic, using the problems, challenges, or limitations you are facing in your business as a mirror to align every aspect of your life – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relational, professional, financial – because your business is a reflection of who you are as a whole person.
My approach is to work with you in a group setting together with other business owners or in a one-on-one engagement in the context of your business, with strategic, practical, and customized coaching and consulting based on your unique needs and desires.
SERVICES I OFFER
Alignment Council – Join me and a group of like-minded business owners intent on growing their businesses and committed to the work of alignment. Many business owners walk a lonely path in the battle to build their businesses. In this council we join arms in the struggle, we learn from one another, we tap into the power of being united in purpose, and we work together to grow our businesses as we grow and transform ourselves. Councils meet twice a month and gather yearly for an alignment retreat.
Alignment Consulting – For those seeking a customized one-on-one engagement with me, the journey begins with a high-level alignment assessment followed by a deep-dive alignment audit, where we look at each aspect of your business and your life and identify any significant misalignments. We then collaboratively create and execute a strategic plan to address mission-critical misalignments. If appropriate, I join you in the trenches of your business together with your leadership team to accelerate and expand alignment throughout your organization. In addition I can work with you and your team to identify and re-structure any misaligned business processes. If needed, I can also work in transitional executive-level and board roles to support you and your business throughout the alignment process.
Alignment Coaching – Whether in a group council or one-on-one engagement, we systematically go to work on your holistic personal alignment using a process I developed called Pitwalking™ to align the misaligned roots that are negatively impacting your business and your life. I also train you to become a Pitwalker™ so that you can continue this alignment work as needed, on demand, without dependence on me.
Alignment Quest – I create and guide rite of passage experiences (alignment quests) for business owners who have come to a critical transition point in their life and business – when their heart is calling them to make a major change, but they feel stuck or don’t know how. If you’re at this stage, I can lead you through a process to facilitate a radical shift in your life in a short period of time, without you having to experience a detrimental mid-life crisis. Here’s a docu-movie I made about my own alignment quest in 2019.
Nature Alignment – I integrate nature into everything I do, as there is no better teacher, connector, and aligner than the earth; so expect to be in the great outdoors regularly as we work together.
