No one hopes for massive turmoil or an upheaval of life as we know it. 

But through chaos comes clarity and changes like these offer us an opportunity to reevaluate who we really are and want to be. 

Last year, Dave Hollis’s life was turned upside down and in today’s episode he welcomes us into the messy realities of his new one – everything from career transitions, protecting his sanity when his life was on blast, navigating relationship issues and facing his own demons.

Dave is a New York Times best-selling author, host of the popular Rise Together podcast, keynote speaker, and life and business coach. Dave’s history includes CEO of a media start-up, President of Sales for the film studio at The Walt Disney Company, talent manager across film, tv, and music, along with work in publicity, research, and technology in the entertainment sector.

More specifically, we discuss these the challenging questions, and several others, that many people have to face in their lives:

  • What does success look like for me? (11:20)
  • Am I the reason people don’t find value in what I have to offer? (23:10)
  • What have I learned from the difficult experiences in my life? (46:15)
  • How do I know if this is the right solution for me? (55:40)

This type of self-reflection is critical to your ability to effectively lead those around you in a very specific and purposeful way.  Dave makes it clear, you can’t put a price tag on the benefits of surrounding yourself with a community of experienced people to learn from in the pursuit of your goals – whatever they are.

If you’re looking for that type of community, you’re in the right place.  At Art of Coaching, we offer community-based experiences in several ways to make sure we can meet you where you’re at.

The Conscious Coaching Challenge, starting in October, is a 30-day online challenge that provides you with the tools, guidance, feedback, and support you need from the entire AOC team and other members of the AOC family also looking to grow and improve.  In addition, you’ll receive tons of FREE resources AND IT’S ONLY $99.  The Challenge starts in less than 1 month, so don’t wait! SIGN UP TODAY!

If you’re wanting something more long term, we also provide group mentoring – The Coalition – and 1-on-1 Mentoring with several different members of the AOC team.  These options offer a more individualized and tailored experience, ranging in time from as short as 3 months, to an evergreen subscription based opportunity.  

Art of Coaching exists to provide you with the type of value we wish we would have had in our careers.  Please learn from our mistakes!  You can reach out to us directly at to find out more about what we can do for you.
