The Work of Alignment Leads to The Fruit of Abundance


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.


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.


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.


Adam: from stabbing in the dark to abundance in all aspects of life

“Prior to my time with Samuel I was stabbing in the dark in all aspects of my life. His coaching showed me the path of connecting my heart driven purpose to my personal, professional, and spiritual lives as one. He teaches how to remove the often painful roadblocks in our being that prevent us from aligning ourselves with our heart. Through the process the most important tool I learned is recognizing when I’m out of alignment and knowing how to get myself back on the right track.

The work is hard, sometimes confusing, and often unpleasant. The results are immeasurable. My family is strong, my relationship with my kids has become amazing, my spiritual life is solid, and my business is in a state of abundance all due to Samuel’s guidance.”

David: from commercial real estate analyst to investor with over 1200 units

“Working with Samuel has been one of the few most important decisions of my life on multiple levels. Our work together has been a catalyst of growth in my business and my family, and I continue to make them both more. It has made me aware of the importance of being in alignment to create stability through consistent heart-led decisions and actions. It has also helped me to feel, not just understand, the difference between my heart and my ego.

This work of inner alignment with Samuel has established a solid foundation in my life that I use for my continued process of growth. I am fortunate and grateful.”

Gordon: from struggling business owner to purpose-driven real estate investor

“The work that I have done with Samuel has been transformative. I’m no longer chasing after money; now I’m chasing my purpose. As a result I’m living a much fuller life than I could have ever imagined.  

The most beautiful part of this journey is my ongoing hunger to learn more about myself while serving others. The work that I continue to do through Samuel’s guidance has helped me release the blockages that were holding me back from living a complete life. Now every day for me is full of purpose and I’m making more money in my business than I ever have.”

Raylan: from retired vet limited by PTSD to thriving Alignment coach

“Both the trauma of my military career as an Army Ranger and the double-homicide-suicide of my brother and father committed by my mother over 14 years ago left me in a life of chaos, completely numb to everything and everyone around me. Through Samuel’s coaching I can now actually feel my emotions and recognize my misaligned thoughts and beliefs before they can control me and derail my life. I am a free man, and now I am able to turn the perspective of my past into positive strength and power that grows and encourages me, my family, and my community around me.

I was driving a UPS truck when I first met Samuel. Now I’m serving and leading men and women full time through a process that God showed me in my suffering, living a lifestyle of relationship with other seekers, and walking a spiritual path of inner growth daily. Through faith and relationship I am more a warrior than I have ever been, and I am at more peace than I have ever been. I am grateful to Samuel for walking his path and impacting my life for the better, forever.”

Ron: from $5M financial services business owner to $30M, heading to $100M

“Sam is both a tough and loving coach. I had significant barriers that impeded my personal and business growth and many blind spots that he helped me uncover. Working with Sam gave me a transformational breakthrough that I did not even realize I needed.

When I first engaged Sam, I had a stagnant business, a disinterested partner, and had started a second company that was flailing. The work I did with him empowered me to buy out my partner, merge my companies, grow my business from $5M to over $30M this year, and set us on track to reach $100M in the next few years. I am confident I have the tools to get there thanks to Sam.”
