Untapped Genius, Life as a Wave, Packaging Your Passion
Free your mind ... find your groove ... live your life!
No matter what your passion, mission, or endeavor, it all begins with the mind, right? That's both the good and bad news. If you've ever tried to control your mind, change your thoughts, or force the mind to behave, you know just how difficult (if not impossible) it can be! Isn't it ironic that the mind - the source of our abilities - is also what gets in the way?
What I've found is that ...
One key to having a smooth-running, turned-on, and fully-functioning mind is to be aware of the (often invisible) constraints, limitations, and false perceptions the mind creates moment to moment. Notice I did not say "change" the mind. It's more about observing what's going on - like watching a movie - allowing it all to be there and then to know how to step outside of its effects.
What I do ...
As a coach, I get to help people clear the muck of the mind so they can tap its built-in abilities to better do their thing - in other words, I help them stop fighting their brain!
I've been helping folks free their minds for 18 years using an approach I call Life as a Wave. I love seeing the incredible relief and joy they get to experience being free from the mind's self-generating limiting thoughts, false perceptions, harsh judgments, and other illusions that bind us - and the results of their heightened creativity, intelligence, and clarity that naturally emerge.

NOTE: I have an amazing program for teens & young adults called Untapped Genius for Young Minds to help fully develop and transform their interests into something tangible, while also helping them expand their self-awareness, mindset, and other key skills required to flourish in today's fast-paced, ever-changing world.

Life/Creativity Coaching - Carl has created one of the most original and invigorating frameworks for enjoying creative freedom in even the simplest and most mundane parts of everyday life.
It's a simple and achievable way to engage in courageous living. If it's true that everything that we do is motivated by either our hopes or our fears, then Carl's created a way to act on our hopes without being distracted by our fears.
In my career as a filmmaker, there are countless risks that I have to take. I turn to Carl's methods on a daily basis to help me make those choices with courage and conviction. He's helped to give me a creative freedom that I might not otherwise have claimed as my artistic right.Kern Konwiser - Emmy-Winning Film Director & Producer
Personal Growth - I personally could write a dissertation about the ways I enjoyed your presentation ... nothing but inspirational. In fact it was just right for me considering what I needed that day. I could go on and on really, and I will at some point.
For now I will say this: I think you have a knack for articulating ideas. And you have great ideas...ideas people need to hear.
You are a shining star.Cyd Cox - Professional Coach
Health/Wellness/Performance Coaching - Carl, you need to know what a huge impact you had on my life when we were roommates in music school, I lost 70 lbs (!) in 12 weeks because of what you showed me. And you taught me how to live my life ... you told me things that I'll never forget. And Jimmy ... remember him barging in and doing push-ups in front of the tv? How he put down the booze, lost weight, and got those huge shoulders?!
I often speak of those days you helped us both out, coming up with a nutrition plan, working out together, coaching us on life and how to live it to the max. You did all that...you, my friend.
You need to tell your story, guy. The world needs to hear what you have to say, so don't be so damn modest about it!Joakim Ekberg - Musician
Technology/Online Business Coaching - I have worked with Carl over the last two years, particularly on my novel, Tiorunda Stories, which had a successful Buffalo, New York debut this year.
Carl is perfectionist, in the good sense of that term. His painstaking and successful efforts in formatting the cover of the novel, establishing a web site, and working out the technical printing details have all contributed to the success of the work. His strong aesthetic sense has also added an artistic element to the cover of the novel in addition to his wide knowledge of various venues that would open my work to both niche and general audiences.
I am currently working with Carl on a new project that will include a Web site for a daily alcohol recovery diary. I am impressed with his working knowledge of Web site technology and his strong artistic sensibility that is giving the web site an added creative element.
I look forward to working with Carl on other future projects, including my latest book and online community, A Recovery Journey, as well as my International Film Studies site where I'll be offering ecourses on history & culture through film.John T Marohn - Retired Teacher, Author
Technology/Online Business Coaching - With the help of my coach, Carl Contino, I was able to launch my ebook for my personal training business, Fortitude Fitness, not only on time for a presentation I was giving, but the quality was AWESOME! I had all the tools I needed to create my first ebook for my personal training business. Even though we live over 500 miles apart from each other, my buddy (and Life Coach) and I were able to create my ebook through the Internet using the virtual collaboration tools.
What I could not do alone I was able to do with the support and vision of another - a key lesson I've learned on my path to success.
I ABSOLUTELY recommend anyone interested in pursuing their passion sign up NOW for Carl's service, as this will guide you to where you have never thought possible on your journey! DO IT!Chris Lombardo - Personal Trainer
