Consultant & Coach
When you are in business, there's always going to be some type of frustration to vent... am I right? We often underestimate the value in venting to clear up the mind. Wouldn't it feel better to get that off your chest? This is where progress can happen when you let go of those thoughts and as a meditation coach, I see this as a very important aspect of mindfully approaching life and work.
We all have a love/hate relationship with technology and tools... we're always searching for the next best thing while still not fully benefiting from the ones we're already using. Having tried thousands of tools over the years, I've found that there's a lot more to the picture than meets the eye. If you are frustrated with the current tools you are using, searching for the perfect tools for your workflow or just want to optimize an area of the business - I'd love to talk with you.
Mindset is often the most important part of growth, a lot of people underestimate how much emotional intelligence plays a role in their success across their life and business. Mindset coaching can be the first step to some of your biggest breakthroughs, some might call it getting out of your own way :) It's often not the how-to that's the issue but the emotional kryptonite in the way, clearing that... that's your competitive advantage.
Just recently made the decision to use Intercom for a project that I'm involved with. Now using it on a daily basis, I'm quickly understanding even more about why it's an industry-standard in customer support and success. I have been preferring it for years as an end-user and for user tracking in previous products but having transitioned recently from Zendesk -- I can say that I highly recommend Intercom over its competitors. There's some excellent integrations to level up your support!
Trello is so simple yet potentially so complex at the same time as it can tempt you to over complicate it or get you stuck in a simplified "To Do, Doing, Done" workflow when your project would benefit from exploring alternatives... the optimal workflow is often somewhere in-between. My favorite use of Trello is often the unconventional ones, like travel planning, financial management, etc with a combo of Power-Ups and Addons. But of course, it can be a great tool for everyday use too.
There's a lot of Project Management tools out there on the market but Asana has been one of my go-to recommendations for several years for a variety of reasons. I believe there's no 'perfect' tool but believe Asana has a rich set of features and excels above a lot of other options especially at the free level for teams beginning with collaboration, project and task management. Getting the most from Asana often means stepping back and looking at how your team works.
For almost 10 years, we've been involved in consulting work with universities, colleges, and enterprise clients who are looking to improve their collaboration and project management. I've helped teams with collaboration on various platforms more specifically ActiveCollab a self-hosted project management tool with the ability to extend via custom-built modules. Generally starting with best practices and non-development improvements then looking at how customization could further improve workflows from calendar tweaks for clarity to full custom brief functionality to better automate project creation. We've been involved in helping teams get more done with less hassle. Specializing in work with Marketing & Communications teams and their needs.
I enjoyed my conversation with Nathan. We touched on a variety of career and life areas which were interesting and insightful.
Thank you Nathan. You gave sage advice for a big fork in the road. I felt much more certain about my career direction after our chat.
Nathan was a pleasure to speak with. I took away some actionable ideas.
Thank you my friend! I hope to speak again.
Nathan is great at getting to the root of your problem and identifying unique ways to solve it. His knowledge is extensive and very valuable!
Had a really, really good call with Nathan. It felt like I was catching up with an old friend! He gave me advice on some work-related issues I was having and alternative problem-solving avenues I could approach in regards to my situation. Was also able to inject some travel talks in there too!
Nathan made a significant impact on me in just our first session. I felt super comfortable interacting with him. Instead of firing direct questions at me, it was a more casual approach of back-and-forth. He has a vast amount of experiences/stories/information that he shared that were inspiring to me. He affirmed that even though I had many interests, I didn't necessarily have to narrow things down into choosing one thing. I look forward to meeting with him again soon.
Nathan is a great Mentor, he helped me reconcile my thoughts and put my ideas in order. He was helpful by giving past examples and ideas on how to move forward with what I want to achieve and helped with setting me in a better mindset. He is nice, friendly and knowledgeable, talking to him leaves you recharged and wanting to do good. You feel like you’re just having a normal conversation but then realize it’s much more!
The call with Nathan was extremely helpful. He's a very savvy business consultant that gave advice beyond what I was expecting from the call. Some of the things we addressed: how to stay productive without burning out, and how to leverage my time more by focusing on business strategy and delegating the implementation. Highly recommend Nathan as a mentor!
'Actionable insight' does not to justice to a superb talk with Nathan. He helped dissect seemingly insurmountable challenges faced as an entrepreneur and walk through them in a entirely new perspective. Included were counter-intuitive tips & tools for productivity that have been uncanny in their effectiveness - coming from someone who has tried most. Authentic & empathetic person - highly recommend a session!
I came into my first session with Nathan feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, and even a bit helpless after months of being unable to work through specific challenges regarding productivity, communication, and project management. Following a helpful conversation with him in which he quickly identified the challenges I described and offered his own insight into why they existed (and persisted) as they had, I came away feeling relieved, motivated, and ready to take on my next project using the actionable solutions he shared. Highly recommended and looking forward to future sessions.
I had a very nice session with Nathan. If it were a longer session, we could unpack a lot more things. Overall, Nathan is very helpful and guiding me a lot in mindset and asking myself the right questions. :)
"I don't know what's happened... but I feel better!" This was one of my last comment :) Thanks Nathan, talk soon!
Great conversation with Nathan helped me prioritize the tasks and inspired to continue development
Nathan is a really knowledgeable guy! Had a great session!
Had a really great session with Nathan. My plan was to not prepare anything for the meeting to make the session "floating" and it turned out to be a really valuable session. Two papers full of points to research and pointers who have nudged me into a direction I didn't really think about before I entered the session. Thanks Nathan!
Nathan is a great person to use as a sounding board and offers a calm voice of reason and support. Recommended
Nathan was great and helped me identify the answer to a question, I have spent months thinking about! I am looking forward to future sessions. Thank you Nathan!!!
Nathan's a great listener and understood quickly the challenges I am facing as an early stage startup founder. His keen interest as well as his advice was much appreciated!
Nathan is incredibly friendly. He's a great person to bounce big ideas off of and help walk the path through decision making.
Nathan is really friendly and made me feel more confident about getting my freelance work off the ground. Good chat about pricing, resources, communities, workload management and travel. Look forward to speaking with him again!
Nathan's coaching approach is super friendly, yet allow me to share my concerns and worries in a very natural way. Love to positive vibe of Nathan, he also helped me to discover my hidden "anxiety-panic-stressful" pattern and offered me some resources to handle them. Having a coaching call with him have made my day!
Had a very nice session with Nathan. We exchanged thoughts about various things concerning business, workplace culture and mindset. I found the call to be helpful and insightful. :)
Talking with Nathan was quite different from other calls I had on this platform. Even though it was the longest call I had here, it really did not feel like it. We had a wide-ranging conversation about meaning, goals, motivation, focus, entrepreneurial struggles, and much more. I was really uncertain at first, partly because I decided to share a few personal details, which I usually would not share with strangers. Nathan definitely helped me to see a number of things more clearly.
I appreciate this talk with Nathan! Speaking the same "language" having similar believes and it was very useful to see my issues through his eyes / opinion.
I paid for another session with another growth mentor and Nathan's session blew that out of the water. He knows his stuff but more important he digs deep to understand your problem(s) and he offers concrete solutions to addressing that issue. I highly recommend Nathan.
Had a great chat with Nathan, he has a really refreshing perspective and gives great advice. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their mindset
I had a great call with Nathan. We discussed the strategies of scaling a business and what things I would need to consider in this venture. Nathan actively listened to everything I had to say and gave great advice, also suggesting other great information that will be of huge value. I would highly recommend.
Had another good session with Nathan and we talked about the app I am creating. We went through the prototype of the UI designs of the app and Nathan provided suggestions for improvements.
Every time it’s so great to see how far I come I been working with Nathan For about eight months and to see how far I’ve come it’s crazy to see my progress
My conversation with Nathan was unreal, and I cannot thank him enough. His level of calm, understanding, and excessive generosity with his time (we went well over an hour) was inspiring in itself. It felt like I was talking to a long-time mentor, someone who I could just lay things out in front of and have a relaxed conversation about where I am right now and where things are headed for me and my company. Be sure to ask Nathan about resources he recommends looking in to. He went down an incredible path sharing countless gems which I have already began consuming. My conversation with Nathan was the perfect mix of strategic, tactical, and introspective dialogue. Thank you, Nathan!
Nathan was great. He had great insight and advice. He was able to come up with a solution to my problem within a few minutes. He really made me feel confident at the end of our call!
Nathan is a legend, as someone who has a pretty set system for dealing with AD(H)D, Nathan provided me some invaluable advise in how to further enhance my system. Very friendly and openminded and we touched on a lot of topics!
I always look forward to my sessions with Nathan! I enjoy his approach to various areas of self development
Talk to him and you will realise what you are missing in your life right now. Very Kind and Heartful Human Being.
Nathan was kind enough to share his insights on my approach to work. I recently started a new job and it's been difficult to find my place. He also chatted with me about his meditation practice. He's a wonderful guy.
Always enjoy my talks with Nathan!
Really appreciated the conversation and the the time on the phone with Nathan. It was my my first mindset coaching and really glad it went really good. He has an amazing ability to understand the pains ! I recommend
Really enjoyed talking to Nathan. There were some great lightbulb / aha moments during our conversation that helped to unlock powerful perspectives. Nathan is kind, open, attentive and an all-round wonderful person. The world should have more Nathans!
I had a great session with Nathan. We spoke about productivity, finding focus, imposter syndrome, and more. Nathan shared his thoughts and experience, as well as gave me actionable advice on how to address those challenges. Nathan is an attentive listener and it was a real pleasure talking to him. Highly recommend if you're feeling stuck, unproductive, or challenged in any other way.
I had a very good session with Nathan and I left feeling like I had some actionable goals to aim for immediately. Nathan provided possible solutions to several issues I highlighted which has provided further research for me to explore as I had not considered. Nathan also provided feedback on what he thought was good ideas and where he thinks I might struggle and have further problems. Overall I found the session really beneficial and would definitely have another session with Nathan again.
It was a great pleasure talking to Nathan, he really understood my problems and directed me on paths to find solutions. We talked about how to become a coach, how to feel less overwhelmed and be productive. Very nice and uplifting personality who radiates optimism and possibility
My first session with Nathan was fantastic! He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Looking forward to future sessions!
Nathan was a fantastic listener that took the time to really understand my specific situation. After this he recommended simple habits that have proved very helpful to improve my mindset. Much recommended!
Excellent first session with Nathan. Very supportive and helpful with some great signposting and suggestions.
Nathan told about his coaching practise, shared some insights about working with clients and launching a coaching carrier, answered all my questions. It was interesting to talk to him and get inspiration.
Nathan was a great person to talk to about anxieties. He was very understanding and gave us some great tips about how to manage stress and be positive in difficult situations.
Nathan has a really great combination of skills and he has a practical perspective when providing advice. We had a really good talk because we have a few similar professional experiences, so he was able to share his thoughts and provide advice that I can use in the projects that I am working on. I recommend Nathan to people that are looking for balance in their life between a piece of mind and personal and professional growth.
I had a second with Nathan and it is always a learning while talking with him. I had a lot of confusion regarding current situation in my life and Nathan helped clarify most of it. Would definitely recommend him!
Great Insights! Thank you Nathan! Will talk to you soon!
Fantastic call with Nathan, it was really valuable. He gave me great advice and insights related to consulting and working with clients, which I am now looking forward to implementing.
My first GrowthMentor call exceeded my expectations. Nathan and I spoke in great detail on a variety of topics within mental health fitness and productivity. I gained a lot of helpful takeaways from our talks. The conversation could have kept going since it was going so well.
A very good session with Nathan, on time, and really patient. Listened to every topic and always answer giving constructive examples he or one of his acquaintance lived to create easy steps from the real life...not just theory, which what we are looking for as entrepreneurs. Let's see what will be the second session :)
Nathan was highly motivating and asked me to pursue my interests without any second thought. He's definitely an amazing mindset coach! I got some good clarity on my next steps, both personally and professionally. Thanks Nathan! I'll connect with you again, soon :)
Nathan was a pleasure to speak to and helped me realise the importance of celebrating both big and small achievements and also provided me with some additional, actionable advice on how I can get more out of some of the strategies I have already been applying. Since speaking I have been able to apply what we discussed and have gained great direction on my goals for 2020!
I really appreciated Nathan’s friendliness, he made me feel at ease straight away and comfortable to share my thoughts. He shared with me interesting perspectives which I have not about before and offered me actionable items which I can act on.
Nathan was really helpful and provided me immense guidance on how to start with a coaching career. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for clarity to talk to Nathan.
Nathan is, above all, great guy! We had an excellent talk about some issues I am dealing with when it comes to focusing on and improvement of productivity. I started implementing his advice, and I can already see some improvements. Looking forward to our next chat, where we can sum up what I have accomplished.
The ssion with Nathan was great. He provided very useful advice related to consulting & gave me a lot of ideas to implement right away. Thanks so much for your time Nathan, I really appreciate it!
Our first mentoring session was unfortunately hindered slightly by technology (new 5 star hotel with WIFI problems :( ?!) but despite that, Nathan and I managed to conduct an introduction of sorts. He was interested to hear about my new non profit project and it's current state of progress. Nathan helpfully offered to approach his international network should volunteers be needed in the future. On a personal note, Nathan can relate to my struggles with executive functioning and everyday task prioritization/execution. We discussed how this affects the growth of business projects. He suggested a helpful book title that may be of assistance.
Had a great session with Nathan and talked about how to deal with lack of focus when there's just so many things on the table. If you're on the ADHD spectrum, talking to Nathan's a must.
Nathan is a great listener and very compassionate. He helped remind me of going back to basic when it comes to dealing with tough situations while growing a business. Thanks for your advice and ear Nathan.
Nathan was patient to understand my issue in detail before offering any templated, off the cuff solutions. He spent a bit of time prior to the call researching my issue and the application at the center of that issue. He is thorough in his approach and methodical in his analysis.
I had a friendly call with Nathan who answered all my questions on cold emailing and being a digital nomad. He provided me valuable insights and made sure that my scope was well focused and oriented.
Nathan has a lot of experience in helping entrepreneurs find their focus. I am pleasantly surprised that after one session, we have found techniques that work, and I could immediately apply them in my daily life. I'm looking forward to our next session!
Nathan was more than helpful with my issues of being stuck in progress and growth. He listened to my problems and event took the time after our session has finished to follow up with amazing new ideas for me to grow and reach more people, which I would never think of on my own. Sometimes it really helps to talk to someone that see your problems with fresh eyes and that leads to new paths we would never do on our own. So happy to have met Nathan and hope we will chat again! Best, Sanya
