Hey, My name is Dan and I would love to share my story with you! I’ve spent the last few years building successful businesses in personal development and in music…what a journey it’s been!
- I’ve helped people from all over the world transform their lives and realise their full potential – getting over breakups/divorce, and in relationships, confidence and business.
- I’ve organised events that have hosted thousands of people at some amazing venues in UK. I’ve also had my own music signed and performed at some of the most well recognised venues in Europe.
At first, this might sound like a bit of a unique combination, but all will become clear shortly.
So how did I get there…?!
Some years ago I went through a very tough time in life. I’d spent most of my studying years preparing myself for a career in finance… For some reason this is what I thought I wanted to do and that it would bring me the type of life and happiness I was after.
It’s important to bear in mind that at NO POINT did I EVER think, let alone believe that I could be an entrepreneur, nor that I was a creative person!
Promotions, big salaries, pay rises and career development did not make me feel the way I wanted – I felt a bit empty, like I had no purpose or fulfillment. It felt like I had a big hole in my life, in my being.
Taking professional exams only increased the stress and anxiousness. Then the final blow - my live in girlfriend of nearly 3 years broke up with me and moved out! I was absolutely devastated – my world felt like it had been turned upside down. I felt so lost, as everything I thought I once knew didn’t make sense anymore. My confidence was shattered, I was full of fear about my uncertain future, I couldn’t eat or sleep, I was constantly in pain thinking about my ex and strategising ways to hopefully get her back, totally confused about my career and had just no interest in doing anything! It was a very intense and at times, overwhelming melting pot of thoughts and emotions.
So I embarked upon a personal development journey in an attempt to make some sense of it all and to get my life back. The shortened version is that after a ton of reading and research, I stumbled across an introductory coaching course, and thought I’d give it a go. I fell in love with it so decided to take the necessary exams to gain qualifications and experience, and ultimately decided to start my own business…..ME…MY OWN BUSINESS! What the…?!
So what made me specialise in the aforementioned areas?
Well with relationships/confidence/breakups/divorce it was mainly to do with the traumatic experiences I went through – my confidence had gone to rock bottom, feeling broken from being dumped, and realising that my knowledge of what it takes to have successful relationships (in all walks of life) was severely lacking. Studying these areas and incorporating coaching frameworks and techniques with what was learnt was not only hugely exciting to me, but also something that came quite naturally…it just felt like I’d found my calling!
On the business side, coaching is naturally very effective, as its cornerstones revolve around belief, confidence, motivation, organisation, consistency, and habit-building. By coupling this with my own experience/journey (remember I was someone who truly never believed I could be an entrepreneur) I am able to instill the necessary skills, and attributes into my clients, whilst giving them the belief and motivation they need!
A massively positive, but totally unexpected side effect of any painful experiences I went through and my coaching journey was expanding my mind to greater possibilities.
Before this all happened, I didn’t really do anything! I mean, I went to the gym but that was the extent of it…I wasn’t living, I was merely existing. Since then, I now co-run my own events planning company with friends, I produce my own music which has been signed and I have performed in some of the best venues in Europe. Remember this is the same guy that used to feel he didn’t have a creative bone in his body!
It may or may not seem like we have much in common…however, life is all about finding your mission, your purpose, your what, your why! I found mine in coaching, in music and in running two of my own businesses. This is from where you gain your confidence, your happiness, your zest for life, your positive energy. The very exciting thing is, as your coach, I’ll help you find yours.
When you’re in the eye of your storm it would be all too easy to say things like “I wish this wasn’t happening” or “why is this happening to me” or “I’d do anything to make things go back to the way they were” or “why aren’t things in life easier”. As difficult as things currently are or as stuck as you may feel, with the right approach, you can turn this seemingly negative situation into one of the best things that ever happened to you. By using it as a catalyst to make change, the motivator to push yourself and giving yourself the gift of focusing on you and your dreams and ambitions, I guarantee that your outlook on life will very quickly shift; the pain and frustrations of the past will be no more, and you can be the happiest, most confident you’ve ever been!
I have helped many people to take ownership, reclaim their lives, and transform themselves...if I can do it, and they can do it, I know you can too.
