I don’t improve my clients’ lives, I transform them. Often radically.
My speciality is taking people and making them more of who they really are.
A journalist once asked me: ‘What makes you qualified to be a coach?’ For starters, I’ve built a great life for myself, one that fits who I am perfectly.
I do what I love, with the people I love, living and working in a penthouse overlooking the biggest landmarks of my favourite city in the world, at the hours of my choosing, and there is nothing (within reason) that I cannot afford. My dating life is 10/10. I travel as often as I want, staying in the best hotels and eating at the best restaurants everywhere I go. I’m in a better physical shape than vast majority of the population.
When I say ‘You can have it all’, I’m speaking from experience, not just repeating a fancy catchphrase.
I believe, beyond any doubt, that I can be anyone, have anything and be with anyone I want. Through 13 years of personal development, I have eliminated all limiting beliefs (although the vulnerabilities I have remind me that I am still very much human).
I also believe that everything I’ve got, you can have, too. And more. If you’re willing to do the work, that is.
Over the last seven and a half years, I’ve worked with around 350 men and women on a one-to-one basis; I’ve spoken at around 250 events on a wide variety of personal development and business topics; I’ve written a book and 100 articles.
I’ve been interviewed on a number of TV channels, including the BBC and Sky News, and featured on Made in Chelsea. I’ve also been interviewed and written articles in magazines such as Forbes, The Times (print and online), The Telegraph, The Observer (print and online), Evening Standard, Metro, City Matters (print and online), H Edition, Square Mile, Mayfair Magazine (print and online), Spear’s (print), City A.M. (print), Arabian Business Magazine, Portfolio Magazine (print and online) and Luxury Lifestyle Magazine.
I was included in the prestigious ‘Spear’s 500’ guide (their first ever feature of a personal coach). It’s a ‘Who’s Who’ guide to the key players in the UK’s wealth management community, and has been acclaimed as a ‘must have’ reference guide by family offices and high net worth families.
I’m in The Coaching Movie – the world’s first full-length coaching documentary featuring the likes of Jack Canfield, John Demartini and John Gray.
I’m on a lifelong mission to bring personal coaching to the awareness of as many people as possible. Over the years, I’ve seen the profound effects it has had on my clients, other coaches’ clients, as well as experiencing it myself. And if you don’t trust me, these two rather successful men here seem to agree that everyone should have a coach too…
Other things you might like to know about me:
• I’m OCD.
• I’m not always happy.
• I’m 36 and I can’t drive.
• I’m a failed jazz trumpet player.
• I occasionally coach my coaches.
• I can’t handle heat nor spicy food.
• I don’t have a TV and I don’t watch the news.
• I always laugh at my jokes. Others occasionally join in.
• My extreme confidence is sometimes mistaken with arrogance.
• I’m prepared to try everything once. Except for heroin. And sex with a man.
• In everything I do, I aim for perfection and occasionally settle for excellence.
• I’m as materialistic as I am spiritual and as egocentric as I am compassionate.
• I’m very much a dog, rather than a cat (I don’t trust those little fuckers) person.
• People say that my kitchen looks like it has never been used. That’s because it hasn’t.
• I used to be a lifeguard, but today I don’t even like swimming. Or any other form of cardio for that matter.
• Apart from luxury travel, I have a liking for cinematography, comedy, jazz, food (especially Italian), and white wine.
• I used to think that I’m a man and therefore I can’t wear pink. Now I think that I’m the man and therefore I can wear whatever the hell I want.
• I’m dead serious about my work and my clients’ results, but at the same time I don’t take myself too seriously. I like to make fun of everything, including myself.
• I’ve seen all seasons of Billions, House of Cards, Narcos, El Chapo, Game of Thrones, Vikings, Peaky Blinders, Stranger Things and Ray Donovan (all on my laptop, since I don’t own a TV).
• I came to London in 2005 by bus because I couldn’t afford a plane ticket. It took me 27 hours and I wouldn’t recommend it. Then I spent the first two weeks living in a squat. I wouldn’t recommend it, either.
• If I could have a dinner with any 12 people (dead or alive), I would go for: Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Muhammad Ali, Barack Obama, Jim Rohn, Gandhi, Jesus, David Attenborough, Miles Davis and Ricky Gervais.
• My ex-girlfriend was the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. I still vividly remember that romantic moment when I first saw her on Tinder. She’s always complained that my work was more important than her. That’s because it was, as much as I loved my girlfriend.
• Despite my (often dark) humour, unconventional dating life, non-religious views, and overall political incorrectness which might suggest otherwise sometimes, I’m actually a feminist, and massive on racial equality, religious equality, sexual orientation equality; equality, period.
• Amongst other things, I’ve been called Ferrari, Russell Brand, Gordon Ramsay, Chuck Norris and the dominatrix of coaching. I don’t know about the last one, but you get the idea. I’ve also been described as a hybrid of Wendy and Wags (characters from my favourite show, Billions).
• When I was 17, I left school and never went back. It was one of the best high schools in my city. It took my parents 10 years to get over it. Now, when I can and do support them in a big way (which I consider to be one of my biggest and certainly most meaningful accomplishments in life), they don’t even mention it anymore funnily enough.
