This Epic Life is driven by questions. Here’s a favorite asked often by myself, and my coaching clients— typically executives, founders, or conscious parents looking to create positive change.

How do I align my work with what lights me up?

Or, put another way…

How do I get paid to be ME?

The good (and challenging) news is that we have the perfect opportunity in our post-COVID, high-uncertainty world.

What if we’re being forced to realign how we contribute to the world with our highest values?

What if resisting our work just won’t cut it anymore?

Elevating individuals and organizations is why This Epic Life exists. It’s why I’ve trained extensively as a coach, and why I gather amazing leaders in deeply-immersive retreat settings. 

Our services range from Coaching, to Group Programs, and Meditation training. Our flagship event, This Epic Retreat, is 1 of the best retreat experiences available. But don’t take our word for it.  🙂

This Epic Life was named as a nod to what I call my “EPIC!” nature. My legendary Grandfather had the same gene. I’m either disinterested, or So Completely All The Way Obsessed.


What makes a life, or your work ‘Epic’?

…is it your Family, or Career? Both, and…

…is it your Health, or doing something you love? Both, and…

Many of us share this struggle. Balancing our lives seems to be really difficult, if not entirely impossible.

Spoiler Alert: Balancing our busy lives, particularly in a pandemic, is impossible. However, I’m happy to share case studies of countless leaders who achieve “Full-Life Integration™”.

I never handled it well when people told me “you can’t have it all”, or “you need to choose”.  I wanted to pelt them in the face with Skittles.

It is our responsibility to being all of ourselves to our work. In doing so, we can find the audacity to be part of the solution for a world in need.

“You’re waiting to be, what you already are—
You’re the only one left in your way.”

is to help leaders tap their audacity to uplift our planet—
one permission at a time.

Our Core Values

Presence is mandatory for fulfillment.
If our work doesn’t resonate deep in The Feels, we’re not there yet.

We create experiences that crackle and sparkle
with life. Our work must radiate passion.

Our family is our core motivator,
so your family expands when we work together.
We pursue trust, and deep-belly laughs.

Designing our client experiences is our highest expression,
and we serve them up like searing finger-tapping guitar solos.

We’re going to have fun, but we gotta go deep.
We work harder on ourselves than we allow anyone, or anything to work on us.
