Hi, Coach Greg here.

I’ll share a little about me in a second. But first, let’s talk about you.

My hunch is you’re here for a reason.

  • You’re stuck.
  • You’re struggling.
  • You’re overwhelmed.
  • You’re trying to do it all alone.

Wherever you are, you’re in the right place — and I can help.

Why? Because before developing the mindset-focused coaching system I use today, I struggled in business in just about every way imaginable.

Many years before I become a coach, I was a principal of a commercial real estate company. And I was in way over my head.

From the outside, it looked like I had made it.

But underneath?

I was barely holding it together.

I was lost.

Does any of this sound like you?

  • I often had no idea where my next deal was coming from.
  • I worried about the livelihoods of the people working for me.
  • I was always on. The idea that I could leave “work at work” was a joke.
  • There was always more to do… and I was the only one who could do it.
  • I felt alone. I had to be strong for my employees. They were counting on me.
  • I wasn’t good at managing people. My communication skills were lacking.
  • I spent what I made.
  • More money equalled more stress.

There has to be a better way

The more successful I became, the more pressure I felt to keep the charade going. The stress was unbearable. My emotions were all over the place. I felt out of control.

I didn’t have support. No one understood what I was going through. I didn’t know how to tell anyone anyway.

I did everything the so-called “experts” said to do:

  • I took on leadership roles in the community
  • I joined mastermind groups
  • I had an accountability buddy
  • I created vision boards
  • I extended myself financially (thanks to the movie Wall Street)
  • I got to work early and left late
  • I wrote down my goals
  • I hired an assistant
  • I attended personal and professional development workshops
  • I bought time-management courses
  • I spent thousands of dollars in therapy

…but I never got the results or peace of mind I wanted.

At the end of my rope

I was considered successful by my peers, but I never felt it for myself. I was underachieving and underperforming. I knew I was capable of more.

For the longest time I had this knowing… that the missing ingredient for me was support. It wasn’t going to come from a book or a course. Even though I didn’t know it at the time, I wanted a mentor – someone that could guide me.

At one of my lowest points, I said a prayer to the Universe. I wanted help. I wanted a teacher or mentor to guide me. But man was I in a jaded and distrustful place. I wanted help, but I didn’t know who I could possibly trust.

A teacher (or two) appears

There were two archetypes that showed up for me – the martial arts master and the priest/monk. These were the only two archetypes I could see myself being led by. The stories of my teachers will have to wait for another time.

Fast forward to today. I’ve spent over 30 years in martial arts and spiritual (mostly Zen-like) training. And here’s what I can tell you with absolute certainty. You have the ability to get through whatever it is that you’re struggling with now. That ability is within you. Right now. You may not believe it. You may not see it. You may not be able to access it on your own. But you have it.

After all these years I found a better way

Today, I am a professional business and life coach who works primarily with small business owners (typically 10 or less employees), professionals, services providers and top sales reps who know that their has’t to be a better way to doing business and living life.

I offer business leaders and professionals a unique and powerfully disruptive way to navigate the ups and downs of growing a business, improving relationships and living a life they love by teaching them a new paradigm for getting things done.

My approach is radically different then what mainstream business coaching tends to offer and is lot easier and a heck of a lot more fun.

Effortless success, peace of mind and deeper connections with others are common place with the work I do with clients.

You could hire a business coach to just make more money but would you really be any better off? Often a business owner thinks that all their problems in life would be resolved if they could just grow their business and made tons more money. Unfortunately most people have the success-happiness formula ass backwards.

Having been in the coaching world since 1994 I have always been on the look out for the best coaching models and strategies that are most effective and actually helpful for people when it comes to transforming their lives, relationships and businesses.

After over 25 years of individual and group coaching I have distilled from the world of coaching the best of the best. I pride myself in the wide range of client situations that I get to coach people through on a daily basis.

I have worked with billionaires, millionaires, world class speakers and coaches, best selling authors, top producers, underperforming professionals and the guy and girl next door.

If you’re sitting on the fence about working with a business coach but don’t know if it makes sense for you yet, request a complimentary discovery session and experience some powerful coaching for yourself.

It’s like taking a car for test drive, without the pressure to buy anything.

If you’re worried about the growth of your business, I can help you build a rewarding and profitable business.
