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
  • P​urpose 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 ________ 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

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. 

Client Stories and Testimonials

This is a brand new program, so these testimonials are from past clients and members of other programs I offer, such as The Free Freelancer. 

If you tend to be annoyed by coaches who give a lot of fluff and "super inspirational" words that don't actually mean anything and you want someone who's radically honest with you and real about everything...hire Dan. At the same time if you want someone who's really nice, really funny, really personable, someone you're not going to be intimidated by...hire Dan.

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.

Marketing Consultant

At the beginning I did wonder whether he was one of these people who has the catch-all course that's going to like change your life for the better and actually doesn't do very much.

I still benefit from his expertise but it's not just about what he coaches but how he coaches. You'll find that he's empathic particularly in times where you're struggling but also he can be very direct when he needs to be.

I'd done a couple of other programs on finding your passion and making a living out of something you love and I've not really got anywhere with those programs. The difference with The Free
Freelancer is Dan. I felt from watching his YouTube videos that he understood me and it was great to have somebody who's also an ENFP who understands...
