I AM ADOPTED so as a child and an adult, I had to overcome the emotional traumas, insecurities, negative thoughts, abandonment, unpleasant/abusive situations, space, not knowing my family nor family history, being out of place, being a contrarian, not belonging, health issues and being put in survival mode as a baby. Funny part is that adoptive mom and aunt are twins so more confusion as a baby!
I WATCHED MY DAD DIE OF CANCER and then found out the world of lies about health, dis-ease care, the medical industry and government. The death of my dad put me (physically, mentally and emotionally) into an energetic paralysis where my body basically shut down so I had to become my own Dr. After seeing about 20 “traditional” Dr.’s where they couldn’t find anything “wrong” with me, calling me “DILLUSIONAL,” being put on pills, having unnecessary surgery, having few people initially believe my situation, and being overwhelmingly frustrated…I BECAME MY OWN DR. AND AUTHORITY…in most all situations! I BECAME A COACH BECAUSE I WATCHED MY DAD DIE OF CANCER. WE SHOULDN’T BE LIED TO NOR GIVEN BAD AGENDA DRIVEN CHOICES…WE ALL CAN DO BETTER IN BECOMING OUR BEST AND HELPING OUT ONE ANOTHER!
I WAS IN TWO CAR WRECKS (both not my fault) with injuries and had to deal with a “Non-Direct Action” state, lawyers, insurance companies, claims departments and the corrupt system!
There were times where I JUST WANTED TO DIE, but I am not sure if I were too cowardly to or too aware that I had something to offer others going through much the same pain. I’ve had a lot of help from my family, friends and other resources that kept me going…so thank you to all of them!
I WILL BE WILLING TO SHARE with you more about my health journey and the resources I have used to help me understand health, dis-ease, nutrition and proper care so you are free to ask me anything you want. I’M AN OPEN BOOK BECAUSE I’M HERE TO HELP!
I’ve HELPED SOMEONE STOP smoking.
I’ve HELPED SOMEONE STOP drinking.
I’ve HELPED SOMEONE WIN a Social Security court case.
I’ve HELPED SOMEONE GET A HIGHER PAYOUT from a typical lowball insurance company offer.
I’ve HELPED PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES GAIN THEIR INDIVIDUALITY by helping them challenge and critically think about their cultural and traditional ways that hold them back or lessens their value or limits their abilities…I teach them how to honor themselves.
I WAS A REFEREE, Coordinator and Trainer for an adult co-ed sports & social league where I was given the name “Doug, The Fun Coach.” There was alcohol, competition, and money (fees) involved so...!
I WAS PART OF A LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP sand volleyball team, a captain and advised another sand volleyball team to win their very first league championship.
I’VE BEEN IN sales, customer service, management, worked with children/students, worked with adults, worked with teams, worked with individuals and worked with large groups (25-300 people per night and up to 1K per week).
I’ve WORKED AT large corporations and small companies so I understand both corporate and family politics.
I’ve BEEN A FINANCIAL PLANNER and created my own position at a small CPA firm. I passed all of my licensing tests the first time, which is surprising because I hated schooling!
I’ve SPOKEN at an adoption agency seminar, subbed in at networking groups, been a member of chamber of commerce’s and been on a school council as a community advisor.
I’ve HELPED OTHERS in person, over the phone, on Skype, from the U.S. and from different countries with different cultures and traditions.
I GREW UP on a farm, worked on someone else’s horse farm, worked at a full-service gas station, moved furniture, worked 24+ hours in a row, and worked two part-time jobs during high school.
ALL OF THESE THINGS have helped me understand others, their position, their challenges, their emotions and their situations in life. I am sharing these things with you to let you know that I can identify and relate with you and your situation!
KEYS: Limit Mistakes = Get Knowledge = Take Action = Learn, Grow & Improve = Have Fun. My coaching, Eye Opening Coaching, helps you with all of these because you get perspective and detachment that helps you with awareness and planning.
MY COACHING IS LOGICALLY REASONABLE & EMOTIONALLY JUSTIFIED = YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID BECAUSE I WILL MAKE IT RIGHT BY GETTING IT RIGHT = WHAT IS COACHING… COACHING IS ABOUT PREPARING WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL AND HANDLING THOSE THINGS THAT ARE OUT OF YOUR CONTROL = EASIER & CONVENIENT ISNT ALWAYS BETTER OR BEST.
Because Life's More Fun when You Win and Do Well so Better Your Day With Doug!
