“The whole idea of a coach used to make squeamish, but when I asked the universe for help in feeling passionate about my life, it brought me, Cory. Cory has been patient, subtle, and calm with me.  When I started to notice changes in myself and looked back over what seemed like hanging out, only to realize we’d been working the whole time.

It’s been wonderful. I'm proud to call him my mentor and friend.

Cory is one of the most genuinely kind-hearted people I’ve ever known. He is a truly good soul. The impact he’s had not only in my life, but also in the life of those I love, both directly and through the changes I’ve made, is absolutely transformative. In addition to a coach, he’s become a good friend whom I greatly respect.

From the minute I met Cory, I knew we would have a great connection, a positive two-way relationship where we motivated and inspired each other. I recognized he would always be in my corner, encouraging me to be the best individual and strive for my goals. Cory possesses this powerful combination of intellect, emotional intelligence, and relatability which enable him to be an amazing coach, mentor, and most importantly friend.
