Bruce’s understanding of what it takes to break free of old patterns and move forward surpasses other “coaches” I’ve had. His simple, practical approach creating both simplicity and success motivates me daily, and keeps me on track toward the results I most care about.

Writers and other creatives don’t usually fail because they lack ideas or talent.
Or courage, willpower, intention. Not even because they procrastinate.

They fail because they lack a tried-and-true structurean organizing framework—in which their life/work supports their passion, and their art can flourish, regardless of the circumstances and adversity .

Change Your Structure; Change Your Results.

“When Bruce first talked about “structure,” I cringed. I didn’t want to force myself into a mold. But, no! He meant a framework to organize my actions so I consistently moved toward the results I wanted to bring into being. Using the “creating structure,” I became a better photographer and created a focused and rewarding life that supports my art. And I’m getting paid!”

LIFE DESIGN: Skills, Structure, Support, Success

As your personal coach, I can help you develop a set of skills and an organizing framework for creating almost anything. Then help you apply them to results you long to create.

My Life Design Framework can help you simplify complex tasks, focus actions on results that matter, and map out successful strategies and actions for completing them.

Having the support of an experienced life design coach can help you create results, faster, and with less stress and distress—greatly upping your chance of success.

“Bruce is one of the most effective coaches I’ve worked with. In his ebook THRIVE! he gets you excited about pursuing things that matter to you even under adverse conditions — and shows you the skills and structure that will get you there. I found myself nodding my head in agreement thinking, “This makes so much sense.”
