Somewhere in a plane over Mongolia, everything changed.
Probably like you, I was focused on work. But I felt I was missing out. I needed more out of life.
From the outside, it looked like I had it all. I graduated with honors from Tulane and had a 20-plus year career in marketing, complete with international travel, impressive titles and big salaries. All the trappings of success, right?
Society says I should have been happy. Instead, I felt empty.
This wasn’t supposed to happen. I was doing all the right things. Good college. Good jobs. Work hard. Move up the ladder.
What was the end game? What was it all for? Working like a dog, then retirement and…death?
Nothing really satisfied me. I felt hollow.
I needed to shake things up, to break away. I needed to do something…and soon.
Looking out the windows of that Mongolian jet, I realized my heart wanted adventure, a new level of learning, and service to others.
I needed to spend what time I had left on this planet doing something fulfilling. Working on sales funnels and Excel spreadsheets wasn’t going to cut it (they really never did).
In that moment, I made the decision that turned my life around:
I quit the corporate grind and burned the boat.
I decided to pursue adventure — travel, photography, new friends, tastes, and smells. All of it.
I put the past behind me, and I wouldn’t let myself look back. Since then, I’ve been to 40 countries and counting, and life now stretches out in front of me like the Mongolian landscape.
But it's not about me. It’s about you.
I now work with other brave souls who are ready to stop dreaming and start living. To create a life that fills them with excitement and purpose.
Might that be you?
Do you want something different in your life?
Maybe it means burning your boat. Maybe it’s something more subtle.
Whatever it is, it’s possible. It’ll take courage and a commitment to following your gut, even when things feel uncertain. But the rewards will be life-changing– literally.
Drop me a line. We’ll meet in Mongolia, or Marrakesh, or on Zoom — your choice — and we can talk about what you really want.
“Keith is great. I was at a bit of a crossroads when I started working with him. He helped me clarify what I wanted next in life and what was important to me. His coaching helped me be successful in a new direction.”

"I have always been a very ambitious person and have relentlessly pursued my personal and professional goals. But, for almost two years, I had not been able to figure out how to move forward until I began coaching sessions with Keith. Keith helped me confront my fears, fears that were holding me back. I am now dealing with those fears and moving forward to achieve my goals."
