I LOVE to inspire individuals and organizations to dream BIGGER and achieve MORE.

I get to do that through speaking and teaching, coaching, and inventing.

Professionally... that's it in a nutshell.

Please check out our websites to find out more.

I'd love to connect with you!

Our sites are...
[This site helps to walk you through my talks and training, as well as keep you up to date on some of the other things that I'm up to.]
[This is a grassroots revolution that we started out of necessity in 2006. These events inspire regular people to dream BIGGER and actually take action. Plus, they can provide the opportunity for people to possibly get some help as well as give some help as they go after those dreams.]
[This is a site all about our unique approach to elite business coaching. If you've got a BIG idea, but something is missing... maybe all you need is a kick in the pants.]
[I've been an executive, business and life coach since 2002. In 2008, I began to train other people to coach and to build successful and sustainable coaching practices. We've been wildly blessed to help and work with new and established coaches around the world. If you've ever thought about becoming a coach... make sure to visit us here. You can even grab our free mini-course: "The 5 Critical Questions Anyone Should Ask Before Becoming a Coach."]

Lastly, my favorite and most important adventure is with my family. My wife Melissa and I have two boys who we are freakishly proud of! We also have a small zoo... with 1 dog, 2 cats, 4 fish and a snail named Steve Dangerous.

I inspire individuals and organizations to "THINK. DREAM. DO." Plus, I provide real-world tools so that new ideas can become solutions and dreams can become a reality!


BIG dream gathering
– Present (8 years)

The BIG Dream Gathering started as an "accident" but these events have become a grassroots movement that inspire people to dream big, connect and help make those dreams a reality.

A Kick in the Pants Personal Coaching
– Present (12 years 1 month)

I get to help people take big ideas... brilliant visions... audacious goals... light bulbs above heads... and make them happen.

I've gotten to help launch businesses, navigate career changes, balance life and work, navigate through "quarter-life crisis" and "mid-life crisis" and inspire more creativity and innovation at work.

It's an honor to get to work with people... and it's a whole lot of fun! (But it's also a lot of work... but it wouldn't be worthwhile if it wasn't... right?)
