2017 Annual Life Coach Conference

September 30 - October 1, 2017


Let Adversity Make You a Better Coach...

We are conditioned to avoid adversity at all costs, yet adversity, like soil, grounds us and makes us grow. Each time we face and overcome adversity, we’re given the opportunity to become resilient, confident, and courageous… to rise above any setbacks we may face in our lives and help others do the same.

As coaches, we create value by offering our clients a perspective that teaches them how to plan, prepare and persist against any form of adversity. Our conference celebrates the people who have become who they are today because of their unique perspective and strategies on Overcoming Adversity, and how you can be an even more successful coach as a result.


"Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I’ll show you someone who has overcome adversity."
- Lou Holtz

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
