A different kind of business, for a world that's ready to be different.



Courageous Living is a business organized around one shining principle: a world that practices courage is a better place to live.

We offer life coaching, life coaching training, and digital, downloadable e-books and courses that teach people how to practice courageous living in their lives and businesses. You can hire us for one-on-one coaching or consulting, sign up for our life coaching training program, or join in with any of our programs throughout the year (our schedule is seasonal and rotates during the year).

Our heroes are: Maya Angelou, Pema Chodron, Oprah, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Rich and Yvonne Dutra-St.John, Matthew Marzel, Iyanla VanZant, Dr. Brene Brown, Scott Harrison and…you. Everyone on this list is an ordinary, everyday person who has made a conscious choice to do extraordinary, courageous things with his or her life.

We believe: the people who trigger you the most are your greatest teachers, that money can be a doorway to spirituality, your inner critic is your best friend in need of some serious love, compassion is more than just a tagline, meditation is medication, and it’s your life’s purpose to be live full-on, fully-alive.

Also? That no matter how challenging, frustrating, depressing, or flat-out fucked life has become, there’s a way to turn it around.

On Practicing Courage: Practicing courage starts at the individual level, and transfers outward to the collective. “Working on yourself” isn’t selfish; it’s the only place to start when you want to change the world for the better.

When people practice courage consistently, they learn how to totally trust themselves. Everything grows out of that courageousness: we make better decisions, stay present and connected to our truth, love better, eat better, sleep better, give better, live better.



Want to infuse your life with courage and prioritize what matters, most? The Courageous Living Program is for you.

Are you a life coach (or a therapist, counselor, acupuncturist, or someone else in a healing and heart-filled client-centered business)? The Coaching Blueprint is for you.
