The Big Questions

For my entire life, I’ve been compelled to seek answers to the big questions about the meaning of life.

  • Who am i?
  • Why am I here?
  • What is my purpose?
  • How should I relate to others?
  • How can I make the best choices?

At every step of my journey along that path, I’ve been sharing what I’ve learned about how to find greater meaning and reward in life and in work.

For nearly thirty years, through my writing about right livelihood business, meaningful work, and community building, I have dispensed what I’ve learned to 10s of thousands of men and women searching for more meaning in their lives, their work, and their workplaces.

For more than thirty years, I’ve also offered coaching and consulting services, workshops, webinars, and courses (both in-person and online) and other lifelong learning opportunities to several thousand people interested in going deeper in the directions described in my writing.

I have been fortunate to share intimate 1-on-1 coaching sessions with nearly 1,000 individuals and, with their help, I have refined the unique Good Work Guidance™ and Good Business Advice™ self-discovery processes designed to help find more meaningful work. These processes now include an emphasis on mindfulness, focusing, and other skillful means as well as many other powerful ways to escape the bonds of wage slavery and live a life of meaningful contribution and financial security.

Info About My Consulting and Coaching

I offer two consulting/coaching services:

Good Work Guidance is oriented more toward those who prefer to work for someone else, but want to work toward their own right livelihood within the workplace.

Good Business Advice is for those who want to start or grow an economically self-sustaining project, cause effort, or commercial enterprise.

Both are available online or in-person for those living or visiting the San Francisco Bay Area or the New England coast between Boston and Portland, Maine. I

Who Benefits from My Services

accountants, actors, actuarys, architects, artisans, artists, authors, automotive mechanics, bankers, bookkeepers, carpenters, chefs, chemists, childcare workers, coaches, court reporters, dancers, database administrators, designers, desktop publishers, disc jockeys, doctors, economists, educators, engineers, electricians, executive assistants, farmers, gardeners, graphic designers, health professionals, landscape architects, landscape designers, lawyers, librarians, map makers, musicians, nurses, paralegals, performers, photographers, playwrights, programmers, psychologists, real estate agents, reporters, scientists, sculptors, secretarys, social workers, statisticians, street performers, stockbrokers, teachers, typists/word processors, urban planners, veterinarians, web designers, webmasters, writers, and more.

I’ve also helped many aspiring entrepreneurs and long-time business owners from a wide variety of business types, including: consulting firms, healthcare practices (including acupuncture and Chinese medicine, allopathic, chiropractic, counseling and therapy, energy medicine, homeopathic, massage, and naturopathic), mail order, private schools, public warehousing, retail stores, small manufacturers, and wholesale distributors,

I’ve also worked with corporate managers and executives from large organizations in the business, government, healthcare, and higher education sectors including Apple Computer, Bank of America, Esprit, Fujitsu America, Hewlett Packard, Hitachi, Levi Strauss, Prudential, the University of California, Wells Fargo Bank and Zenger Miller.

Note: When I first began sharing descriptions or lists of the many jobs and businesses I’d helped, I naturally got some questions about how it was possible to have served such a wide variety and large number. The answer is simple: I’ve always given back to my “community” by volunteering my services pro bono to special case needs or personally meaningful causes. My volunteer consulting through the Briarpatch Network alone exposed me to more than a thousand small businesses. During the 12 years I taught at Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, I was exposed as a teacher or consultant to dozens more. My vocational guidance practice that began in the 1980s has brought me more than 500 employees, managers, and executives seeking guidance to find more meaningful work. It was simply this number of opportunities that provided the wide variety I’ve worked with of both jobs and businesses.
