Are you spending your day trying to GET money, ass or attention?

Do you accumulate things in order to feel better about yourself?

And how could you earn a living by helping others transform their lives for the better? 

This week, Guy Sengstock is back for part 2 of our talk on finding your purpose and mission in life. 

We’re back with Guy Sengstock in our exploration of how to find your purpose or mission in life. In this episode, Guy shares his own personal story of revealing his passion and gifts.

We also make some powerful distinctions around how men use the world as a place to GET SOMETHING -- money, sex, attention, validation, etc. The flip side is seeing the world as a place to EXPRESS SOMETHING -- namely your talents and abilities to provide value or positively impact others.

Guy also walks us through a preview of his year long transformational coaching program. This is a great offering to consider if you’re looking to make some major changes in your life AND develop some skills to earn a living by helping others.
