THE WE TRAIN COACHES TEAM
WTC FOUNDER and HEAD COACH
I had NO idea what my degrees in "Government" and master's in "Systematic Theology" would help me to do other than I was somewhat interested in the topics. And I was the son of a business owner from New York City and was encouraged to go into the "family business." (paper)
Instead, I helped found a church in the Boston area and pastored it for a decade... loving the people, yet at the same time felt like I was a "fish out of water" in my work and my life!
Burnout, depression, and relationship struggles weren't on my top list of "success principles" nor was the failure to address the constant uneasiness in my soul!
Becoming a professional coach for entrepreneurs and those in life and career transition in 2001 saved my life in multiple ways. It connected me to my real design and to my desire to be engaged in meaningful entrepreneurship, business, and life-on-life relationships.
Since that time I have co-founded and led Convergence Point Coaching and written more than 6+ published books that help people unlock their truest selves. I have worked with hundreds of incredible clients since then, from CEOs who grew companies that gained national recognition and awards, to people who "retired" to start their "heart businesses," and to moms now able to work flexibly and make an income and an impact. I have developed countless tools for my coaching and used them to help those I coach find the clarity and confidence to do what they were made to do... and even get paid to do it!
