Coaching from the Heart

As I coach people from so many cultures I see that we all share universal pain and pleasure. But just because life is hard doesn’t mean that we have to be. I appreciate our global team—each one of you who gives love and support to make sure that our business web truly comes from the heart.

When you come from a small village and live on a small island, it is easy to wonder what you can bring to experienced people in sophisticated cities around the world. Yet wherever I travel I see that we have something special. We bring sweetness and aliveness to the lives of people that have fallen into bitterness and resentment.
I find it amazing to see the physical transformations in the eyes and faces of the people we serve. As they release heaviness and embrace lighter, brighter lifestyles, they sweep us along in the joy of discovery. As they remember their curiosity and vitality, we have the privilege of being part of their awakening.

I wouldn’t trade my life for the life of anyone else. As Albert Schweitzer said, service is the source of true happiness.
