It's just four words.

Finding the clarity and courage to make them count. 

You’ve uttered them thousands of times.

You’ve said these words when a friend asks for a favour…

You’ve thought them when witnessing a wrong…

You’ve said these words when you’ve woken up on Tuesday morning in the comfort of your bed…

Perhaps you’ve even said them waking up on Sunday morning in a bed you didn’t recognize…

And you’ve certainly said these words when contemplating life’s big pieces:

  • School
  • Work
  • Purpose and Passion
  • Adventure
  • Love
  • Happiness

Whether you’re deciding on a major, a first career, or a third career, it always comes back to this question: What should I do?

Knowledge, Clarity, and Courage.

I’ve been helping people answer this question for as long as I can remember and it always comes back to these 3 elements.

To make a wise decision you must know yourself (self knowledge), know the opportunities available (general knowledge), and know the details of your future focus (specific knowledge).

It may sound ridiculous, but many people decide to be a lawyer, psychologist, or architect without, well, actually ever even speaking to a lawyer, psychologist, or architect.

I’ll admit it, I decided to major in Psychology without ever meeting a Psychologist, let alone spending a few hours asking one about the reality of life in his or her profession.

So that’s where specific knowledge comes in…now let’s work backwards to general knowledge.

We all know the common professions: Doctors, Engineers, Scientists, Teachers, Truck Drivers, Accountants and the rest…

But how many people in their late teens know what an arbitrator, team building consultant, or chief happiness office does, or even is?

This is where general knowledge comes into play. If you want to make the absolute best decision for what you should do, it helps to have a general knowledge of all the opportunities available to you.

Now we’re back to self knowledge. Take every opportunity you can to get to know yourself better. Some ways to grow your self knowledge are:

  • Going for it (success and failure teaches us)
  • Asking friends and family
  • Reflection and time alone
  • Psychedelics and guided experiences
  • Personality tests
  • Journaling and other exercises
  • Psychologists, Therapists, and Coaches

Thanks to Dan, I was finally able to find a job that I feel excited to go to every morning, and as a result, do well while having fun. 

This is coming from someone who has literally no patience for things I don’t like to do: I switched jobs 6 times in less than a year and was starting to feel desperate. Dan showed me that I don’t have to settle. I’ve been enjoying my professional and personal life, and I’m in a period of gaining skills and expertise so I can start my own thing soon. I’m getting so much positive feedback at different levels, including work and it’s making me value my competencies and self-image.

What's Possible

If you're anything like me, you've come to realize that you may want a different life than most of the people you know. You may want a career that is both flexible and fulfilling, to pursue the arts, or to start your own business.

Since as long as I can remember I have been helping people figure out what they want to do, find creative ways to do it, and summon the courage to make it happen.

Having worked with 100s of people, and having taught 10,000s, I know, without a doubt, that it is possible for you to

  • Find work or create a business aligned with your unique personality, past, and passions. 
  • Design your life with the freedom to do all the things you love.
  • Overcome any fear or doubt and follow your own path. 

I’ve designed this program to help you do just that.

Imagine the difference when you feel aligned and totally clear on what you want to do with your life and the next steps to make it happen. Then...imagine how incredible it's going to feel when you do just that, make it happen.

Opportunity Cost...and Real Costs

It's tough to put a price on clarity. Depending on where you live, choosing the wrong University Degree will cost you up to $200,000, not to mention the opportunity cost. I've read companies lose about a years salary on a bad hire, so choosing the wrong job is going to cost someone $50,000, $150,000...and of course cost you a few years of your life.

Having the support of the group and Dan has given me the confidence and courage to just carry on. Dan understood me and it was great to have somebody who is also an ENFP who understands why we can’t just always get things done. I’m now at the position where I’m really excited about the future and I think for the first time I have a clear goal, I know where I’m going, and I finally feel like I’m on the right path!

When I started University...everyone around me was in the typical rat race 9-5 mindset and they influenced me and changed my mind...until my mother got sick and I realized I need a way of supporting myself that allowed me to create value and feel like I'm contributing and growing as a person while having the flexibility to stay with the people I love.
