Launch of David Gowans Coaching & Mentoring
It has been two years since I left the company that I created which eventually gave me the status of millionaire at 38. But things have changed now. I no longer crave those material things for satisfaction. I no longer aim to have the status or be ‘the man’. Things have certainly changed. I sold my fancy car and now drive a Volkswagen campervan, I downsized my home and love my new apartment. I sold some and gave away lots more of my ‘things’. This stuff just doesn’t float my boat anymore.
I live a great life. I’ve just spent the last four months in Brazil, escaping the Scottish winter. I have the means to be anywhere in the world when I want, and Brazil was a great choice (more on my experiences on other blogs to come). However, something was missing. After being the leader of a fast growing business and taking it to a successful sale in 2012, I had lost my purpose. My aim was always to grow the business, make lots of money and then travel the world forever. And the last few years I did travel a lot. But something was still missing – my Purpose. I dabbled with new business start-ups, gave some coaching sessions to entrepreneurs and worked on some property projects, but I didn’t commit enough to anything because it didn’t excite my passions within.
The reason for coming to Brazil was two-fold – to escape the dark, wet and windy winter of Scotland, and to truly find my purpose and next step of my life. And it didn’t take long to find it. I dreamt up this website and instantly got excited about the opportunity to pass on my many experiences in business and life that could help other people. It wasn’t about making lots of money anymore, as that didn’t make me any happier. I’m excited because I get the chance to see people achieve things that they never thought possible. They can learn simple new daily habits that will make a big positive difference in their life.
For entrepreneurs, I will offer to design their exit from their business, whether that is a sale in the coming years, or to achieve freedom by empowering the existing team to take over the day to day running. One of my specialities is strategy and creating a detailed plan of what needs to be done to get the business ready for exit.
For employees, I will help to find that passion within you that can perhaps lead you to a new profession, a business start up, or just help to make your job more enjoyable. By changing your perception on work, you can really start to enjoy it more.
Like other coaches, I will of course offer coaching sessions via Skype etc. but the number of clients will be limited. So the aim is to provide free advice, ideas and news via the Blogs. These blogs are based on my three passions of Business, Life and Travel. I already have a number of topics to write about based on some questions that people have sent me so far, and I will continue to write about the things that my community are asking me. So if you want to start making the desired changes in your life and achieve that Success that you’ve always wanted, then sign up for free, get in touch and share your views with me.
Peace and Love.
