People fail to follow their big dreams, not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t know how. My mission is to combine content with coaching to show vulnerability, growth mindset and big dreams. I love helping people figure out how to reach their next level.

If you think you are ready to take the next step in your goal setting and big dream journey, apply for coaching. Even if you are still on the fence, seeing what it’s all about is a great idea!


I have always tried to coach people to follow their big dreams. In many ways I have succeeded, but in most ways I have failed. There are way too many youth, and even adults who struggle with mental health linked to learning.

Allow me to explain. I have worked as a personal trainer, teacher, vice-principal and coach for my entire career. Throughout my experience I have supported many people who want to follow big dreams, but for some reason just can’t seem to figure it out.

I thought that teaching people the tips and tricks of dreaming big, goal setting and mindset would unlock their ability to thrive. One week I was coaching three different teen moms to start business projects and excitement was at an all time high. One student was starting a hollywood make up art business. One was creating a teen parenting youtube channel. And the other a child photography business. We got everything off the ground, had big visions and plans that one hundred percent would work. Then, in a flash all three gave up.

They quit and found “more realistic” jobs.

I was shocked. They loved working on it, it brought them great joy and they had genuinely impressive goals. Yet they didn’t think that they could do it. You see, time and time again this happened. I failed to help people follow their big dreams. I was confused, frustrated and frankly sad that I just couldn’t figure out how to help more people. Then I had a huge breakthrough.

I was driving home and reflected on the question, “If I have worked my ass off to be the most effective coach in the world, and it’s not working, then what is missing?” I went through the checklist of great coaching in my mind and realized that one big thing was missing. I was doing a great job of preaching, but I was not modeling for clients.

Any great coach is practicing what they preach. That’s it, that’s what’s missing.

I listed the three most important ingredients of helping people crush their big goals. The ingredients are dreaming big, maintaining a growth mindset, and being vulnerable.

Then I asked myself a second question, how could I possibly model these three things for people? Enter @JustTries….


@JustTries is a digital guise to combine education with entertainment by modelling for people how to live with a growth mindset.

I have also realized that the need for a great role model does not discriminate by age. You may want to learn skateboarding as a 9-year-old, or how to start a photography business as a 65-year-old.

So, I learn how to do things and document the process to show you what I’m learning. I have a podcast, videos, and posts all geared toward learning as much as I can on the subject and passing it on.
