Why Coaching?

It closes the gap between
What Is & What Will Be.

Here’s what I was missing.

How are some people able to create so much impact, while others of us can’t even remember why we launched a browser?

Why does creating the work we’ve dreamed of sometimes leave us exhausted?

How can we align our lives in a way that helps us love, and commit to doing our best work?

I obsess on these questions…

Many of us are ready to figure out, and carry out our Personal Mission. It took decades to shake off the scripts our parents and schools handed us.

The trouble is, we’re bombarded with information on all sides: challenging us, provoking us, and once again selling us into living someone else’s dream.

As a result, we stay stuck in the search. Always looking outside ourselves.

More teachers, more programs. More well-meaning, but unsolicited advice on how to optimize every aspect of our lives.

Much of it is well-intentioned, and maybe it helped upgrade a few specific habits or behaviors.

In the end, the cycle feels exhausting and isolating. Progress can feel slow, and hard to measure.

“…doubled my income, changed my life!”

“An accomplishment directly related to my coaching work with KC… Last week I doubled my income. This also allows me to work at home and within my health boundaries. KC very literally changed my life.”

3 reasons why our quest
for change feels like
such a lonely road

Hard fact that our online culture is a collection of tiny islands.

No one can truly design our lives but us.

We’re not comfortable sitting alone in silence, which strengthens our will power and intuition.

Staying stuck in that cycle troubled me for years. What was I missing? Miraculously, I hit a tipping point while working on myself and began to attract the right resources and mentors.

They helped me claim my own definition of success. Only then did things really start moving.

This was a completely liberating place to create from. It allowed me to rapidly produce my most inspired work— free from self-sabotage and distraction.

I can now see the hard truth: I could’ve arrived at that place of clarity, and aligned “right action” much faster, perhaps, if I had the right coach for me.

“…creativity and a drive
for results.”

“I’ve had the privilege of working with KC for several years on multiple projects (including coaching). Each has exceeded my expectations and shown KC’s passion, creativity, professionalism and drive for results. I’m so proud of the work we accomplished and so motivated by his enthusiasm.”

A Quick Word...
Who Coaching is For
by KC

The foundation of my coaching is rooted in what I call Ruthless Self-Knowledge. If you have an insatiable curiosity to leverage your unique skills into something sustainable and scalable, you’re in the right place.

 

I’m drawn to work with people who consider themselves “seekers.” They are less concerned with some fantasy quick-fix, and more concerned with experiencing life and success on their terms.

 

Taking action on any endeavor, whether a business project, or in doing deep, introspective work, is a requirement. No mystery there. This Epic Life coaching is designed for those who take action each and every day. But we’re less concerned with “action for action’s sake.”

 

We want to identify and inspire your right-action. These are the priorities that are often the most direct route to your goal.

 

Clients who have the thirst for self-knowledge are naturally humble. (Note: I didn’t say scared, or self-absorbed.) They are open to learning on all sides, yet confident enough to take action until they achieve the much-craved result. That is who our work seems to resonate with— and who it produces incredible results for.

 

3 Months is enough to set a strong foundation, but our clients who stay on for a minimum of 6-12 create lasting, transformative results.

 

 

When we mutually decide to complete the coaching term, This Epic Life will bless you on with your Project Designs— that if you stick with, will carry you to your big honkin dream.

 

 

What’s discussed on our calls held in strict confidence, to the ethics and standards of the International Coaching Federation. If you’re not comfortable showing up and talking about what’s really going on— or you’re the type who isn’t willing to take a deep, sometimes hard look at the relationship between how you live and what you contribute — WE WILL NOT BE A FIT.

 

You won’t get what you need, and will be wasting your money and both of our time.

4What is
Different
About Our
Coaching?

We coach clients ranging from those who recently started over, to C-Level Executives running large-scale companies.

In addition to on-the-job coaching in a rapid-growth start-up over a period of 8 years, I invested a full 12-months to completing training with Accomplishment Coaching, which is recognized and fully accredited by the International Coach Federation.

We coach on average about 700 hours per year, and have recently completed my PCC requirements.

When you’re vetting or hiring a potential coach, the first question you should ask is: “Who is your coach, and are you working together regularly?” If the answer is “not really” you are likely talking to an expert, fixer, or consultant.


Nothing wrong with that, except you’re going to need a breakthrough to achieve the results you want. You can’t fix the need for a breakthrough in my experience. I’m constantly reminded how powerful receiving great coaching is to providing coaching.


The quality of our work as coaches is directly related to the quality of the badass coaches we hire to keep us honest, keep us in integrity, and stand for our greatness.


Please also ask where they received their training/certification, and for the distinctions between therapy, coaching, and consulting. This will tell you if you’re talking to a coach, versus someone who is savvy at marketing quick fixes that don’t stick. 🙂



I chose Accomplishment for my training because it is ontologically-based. We studied and practiced hundreds of distinctions to tell when our clients are in their power (Essence), versus Survival Mechanism (or winning strategies). This is commonly referred to as “off the court” coaching.

Most clients hire coaches to hold them accountable, and to produce results. This is “on the court” coaching, and it’s a given. What I’m seeing though, without the “off the court” or “under the hood” piece, we’re not yet the people who can produce the much-craved results.



It takes both sides. I see this in the coaching I receive and the results I generate.

Here are some areas where we can make rapid progress.

Many of these we’ve had to conquer ourselves:

“…inspired greatness!"

“The older I get, the stronger I believe that being in the presence of greatness makes one greater. KC’s greatness is an adept ability of getting a person to appreciate what makes them great and then gently helping them display it to the world.”

What qualifies us to coach?
We are always in process.

I don’t share what follows to impress you. Success has been a long, messy process to align my life with my work. And, if you read my blog or listen to my guided meditations, you know the process continues.

I took the less glamorous, yet more realistic path of redesigning my corporate career into something that inspired me. I’m a husband of 19 years, and a Dad to 3 hilarious nut-ball children. When I’m not helping individuals and organizations create their deepest possible impact, I’m writing and recording music, or leading devotional Kirtan chants.


I’ve been navigating my own personal transformation since 2001. Since 2012 I’ve been interviewed as an authority on work/life balance and human potential in places like Business Insider, have appeared onstage at Wisdom 2.0, TEDx, and Good Life Project events, and in countless conference halls, retreat centers, and podcast interviews. My 75-page blueprint on pursuing and achieving Full-Life Integration has been downloaded over 10,000 times.

Along the way, I’ve tried to spend more time walking my talk than I have marketing myself as some self-appointed expert. I study and practice Kriya yoga through Self-Realization Fellowship. Up until January, 2016 I helped build a company from 44 people and $50MM gross revenue, to over 700 strong and $400MM. We did this while winning many Best Place to Work awards (Crain’s, Adage, Fortune, etc)

doing the work we coach others to do.

We work with 1:1 Clients
