Somewhere in a plane over Mongolia, everything changed.
From the outside, it looked like I had it all. I graduated with honors from Tulane University and had a thirty-year career in marketing, complete with international travel, impressive titles, big salaries, and all the trappings of success. I should have been proud and 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. But the pride from achievements was short-lived. Nothing seemed good enough. The goalposts were always moving.
I wondered what the end game was — more money, a bigger office? What was the point?
Looking out of the small windows of that Mongolian jet, amazed by this strange and wonderful land, I realized that my heart required adventure, as well as a new level of learning, and a greater impact.
I needed to spend what time I had left on this planet doing something real and fulfilling. Working on marketing plans, sales funnels and Excel spreadsheets wasn’t going to cut it.
In that moment, I made the decision that turned my life around:
I quit the corporate grind.
I left my cushy job.
I decided to pursue adventure — travel, photography, new friends, tastes, and smells. All of it.
I burned the boat, putting 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. Now I have the amazing opportunity to work with other brave souls who are ready to stop doing what they “should” be doing and create a life and career that fills them with joy, excitement, and purpose. Might that be you?

“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.” Ben M. - higher education
"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."
