We’re each going to work somewhere around 90,000 hours over the course of our life, and we get to choose how we want to spend these.
When we have a good understanding of our self (e.g. personality, energy level, work style, etc.), what’s important to us, and what we’re good at, we tend to choose well and relate to our work with a clear sense of purpose. And because our work matters – not just the results but also the process – we take responsibility for our career path and focus on continually getting better.
These feelings of empowerment, meaning, engagement and being in service are as sure a recipe as there is for professional fulfillment.
Employers are increasingly aware of the importance of purpose, but they can’t create yours for you. It’s a highly individualized process that, whether employee or entrepreneur, we must each engage in and oversee.
This work is complex, and a hybridized and flexible approach is what I’ve found works best. I’ve trained under several different coaching systems and combine what I think are the most effective pieces of each, but I’ll also utilize some consulting, advising and/or mentorship methods when it makes sense to do so. The early-stage process flow is relatively standard, but from the third or fourth session on, the methods, tools, progression and pace are customized for the client.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) from Oakland University, a Master of Science (Environmental Design) from Cal Poly Pomona, and a handful of professional certifications/accreditations.
My career experiences have been diverse and rich. I’ve worn blue, white, and green collars; spent years in each of the public, non-profit, and corporate sectors; and experienced work as an employee, a leader, and an entrepreneur. There’s a good chance we'll find some professional relatability.
I work 1:1 via the Zoom video conferencing platform.

Myles and I worked together for a couple years at a utility contracting company. When the time came for me to make a change, I was really struggling to pull the plug. I had tried really hard to "make it work," and it was difficult for me to admit that it just wasn't working. I had wrapped my identity up in succeeding at this company. If you have ever struggled to make a big decision (who hasn't), you can imagine the relief I felt when Myles offered to help me think through the options. I needed someone outside my own head to help me think more clearly! Even though Myles had previously worked for the company, it didn't seem to cloud his judgment or impede on his ability to offer considerate, thoughtful perspective. I ultimately decided to make a big career move, and I couldn't be happier with the decision. The things we talked about have stuck with me and I feel better attuned to identify and advocate for my own professional needs.Will G, Independent Sales Rep and Business Owner, Grand Rapids, Michigan
