Ah, I just returned from a much needed camping trip. There's nothing like a great camping trip is there? Sharing red wine by the fire, hiking through lush and foreign landscapes, waking up in a tent to be greeted by the natural world. My favorite part of camping though? It's telling stories and having unforgettable and inspiring talks around the fire in nature. I live for these kinds of campfire conversations, the kind under the Milky Way stars, surrounded by pines trees or high seas, listening to the rhythm of nature while sharing wisdom, philosophy and dreams.

I love having life changing campfire conversations so much, it's what inspired my to become a coach in the first place. 

 

"When your down on your luck and you've lost all your dreams theres nothing like a campfire and a can of beans."

Sometimes when people ask what I do for work, I don’t often say “coaching”. Coaching isn’t something easily described as there’s no one size fits all, it’s an experience over anything. So instead of explaining what coaching is to someone asking what I do, I sometimes I like to say, “I have life changing campfire conversations.” I usually pause and then ask...

“Have you ever had a late night conversation by campfire with a good friend that really changed you on a cellular level from that point on? A conversation that you’ve never forgot? That’s kind of what I do.”

Onward and Upward, campers
