I have always been a big believer in hiring coaches, mentors and being apart of a mastermind. I have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in these types of programs. Each program has been a stepping stone in my life. However, working with John will be a life time program. He has given me so much and helped me get unstuck and find my sweet spot, my “mojo”. I love this guy like a brother, and there hasnot been one other personal development coaches, I have hired, that I feel the same way about, and or has been able to get the results for me as John has.

John O’Connor has been a great friend and mentor to me over the last five years. For the last two he has been my coach for two separate six-month blocks. In my time with him he has provided clarity, accountability, and a constant push into a bigger and more solid future. Specifically he has helped me build a sustainable pattern of growth—allowing me to get rid of a “boom and bust” pattern and stay grounded as I move forward.

I met John through a mutual friend that believed in him so much that he bought me a free session. All I can say is WOW. We worked through a lot of my work barriers and I owe the majority of my growth this year to him and the breakthroughs that he lead me too. John is a very intuitive guy who is easy to talk to. He’s a master at getting to the root of your problems and then reverse engineering them to show you a great solution.

Perfect Origins, Fat Loss Factor

About four years ago, my business partner and I opened a coffee shop. While we both had some restaurant operations experience, we were completely wet behind the ears when it came to every other element to running a business. The first year was a struggle. We collectively worked about 200+ hours a week and felt like we weren’t making major progress. I remembered John telling me about the massage therapy studio he owned and figured if I got my staff of 20 massages for the holidays, that would solve my problem read more… Jeremy Lyman

The last four years John has been my business and life coach. When we first started working together my business was in disarray. Morale was at an all time low and My business partner and I were pulling our hair out trying to sort out what was happening to our business that we cared so deeply for. From our first meeting things began to change. John helped us first break down tasks to make things more manageable. Next we looked at why morale was low and dealt with that.

Although John has many clients, he always takes the time to stay current and focused on the specifics of what is happening in my life and business. He not only gives me strategies for changing old habits, but also constructively challenges my preconceptions so that I see the value and productiveness of new approaches to business management, positive mindset and marketing.

Create Power and Momentum By Simply Changing Your Focus

Ancient wisdom and a little self awareness will tell you that what ever you focus on expands. Period. You create power and momentum by simply changing your focus. Instead of focusing on the problem or what we don’t want want like “I’m tired”  I’m  overwhelmed” “I don’t know where I’m going in life” “I’m not motivated to do  anything”  “my mind won’t shut off” “I’m so out of shape” let’s focus on how we would  like to be  different. By default our minds have a tendency to focus toward the negative like not getting what we want or losing something we already have. Have you had that experience? What happens in your mind? Usually you will see a movie or picture of the unwanted scenario. As far as our emotional body goes whatever it see’s on our “Mind Screen” it will respond to, putting us into fight or flight or an unresourceful  state. Why not focus on how you would like things to be different? Let’s expand that reality, right?! Let’s make sure what our emotional body see’s moves us in a more productive and positive direction. In order to shift your focus from the problem to the outcome you want to create you need to organize your thinking in a more empowering way. Let’s do this together. Better to have an experience then just some more useless knowledge of cool stuff that has no impact on your life. Are you with me? Great. First identify the unwanted situation or state of being you want to shift. Do you have something you would like to change or a problem... read more

“We don’t know who we are until we see what we can do.” ~ Martha Grimes

I’m not a big fan of posting quotes but every once and awhile there is one that really captures a truth with simplicity. I’ve embodied this quote for many years, mainly because when I was “stuck” or “on the fence” in my life and there wasn’t that feedback loop where I could see myself through being a “being in action” I became more and more depressed or down on myself, losing sight of who I was and what I was capable of. By embodying the belief that “there is no such thing as Failure, only Feedback” I am able to make choices and take action in my life consistantly, getting a feedback loop of who I am and who I am becoming. Each choice that is made is feedback that informs the next action that is taken, always keeping a forward motion. Allowing for the nature expression of personal... read more
