My coaching business is called “Atlas Life Coaching” and I’m currently doing general one-on-ones and group presentations. It was hard for me to find a name, and I felt like whenever I received a tip, I heard the opposite to that same tip within the day. So I chose something symbolic – I’m a big fan of symbols – and something that held personal significance. The object, an “atlas”, is a collection of maps.
In architecture, it is a male statue that is used as a pillar of support. It really spoke to me and it wasn’t yet registered as a business name, so I jumped on it immediately.
My vision – my why – stretches into the next five years.
My first real home in Australia was on a vineyard farm. It was where a lot of key experiences and growth happened for me as a child.
I really attribute it to a place of belonging, legacy, and home – however, it was lost to my family because my dad, 30 years old and financially stable, tried to escape the 9-5 by creating his own wine business. But traveling an hour in, an hour back, to a job you hate, 9-5, and then getting home to a wife and 3 very young children, only to work and toil on a vineyard – it was all too much.
One day, and I am CERTAIN, I will give my parents back that dream, and retire them. The Coaching Institute has given me a vehicle to the future that I CHOOSE.
