Taking that new path can be a lot easier with someone who has already done it.  We work with you to help you assess, define and implement a community vision into reality.  Whether you are just beginning to think about starting your own community or are fully committed to developing a community, having a coach will help you get there.

Our coaching process (can be customized for groups) includes the following:

  • A preliminary conversation about you and what you want.
  • Identify roadblocks, determine your strengths and weaknesses and help you develop a plan of action.
  • Discuss and identify your ideal place and people as well as the facts and fiction that fuel your dreams. Define what drives you and how to get to the next steps.
  • In depth look at you as you prepare to change your life to make you a successful candidate for the next part of your life.
  • Taking what you have learned about yourself and expanding it to reach out to attract those whom you have identified as the perfect match to be in community with you. Actualize your plan through outreach and action towards your people and your place.
  • Help you be accountable and on track throughout the process
