Welcome to the Big Dream Program.

1on1 Coaching

 

Hi there! I’m Alex. The fellow in the video above. I have, perhaps you may notice, an unusual accent. It's because I'm from the Maritimes of Canada for starters, then spent 7 years as a commercial diver in Ireland. I sound a bit odd as a result ;)

 

Here's what I'm about: I think it is SO possible to figure out what the heck we should be doing in our lives. It took me 20 years to discover there's a different way to approach this, and I've spent my time and work since trying to shorten that learning curve as much as I can for others like me.

 

When we’re young, with fewer responsibilities… the future looks wide open, and we just *assume* we’ll walk, of course, right into our THING. 

 

And then… Guh. It’s astonishing how quickly weeks and months slip by and turn into years… time passes, and still no lightning bolt seems to be coming to deliver our *big idea*.

 

Honestly, it’s easy to give up hope altogether once things like jobs, children, bills, other responsibilities start coming in. We think, well, maybe life just doesn’t work that way. But THAT doesn’t feel quite right either. There’s that deflated feeling, because… we can sense deep inside us somewhere that there IS more to life. There just is. If we could ONLY figure it out, but it’s so incredibly frustrating, disappointing when we just have no idea what IT is. Whew.

 

This work may be a great fit for you if…

 

  • You have a million interests, and hundreds of ideas. And GACKKKKK! Just can’t decide which one to focus on, which one may be ‘the thing’ for you. It's paralyzing!
  • You are entrepreneurially hearted / minded. Meaning you love the idea of ‘doing your own thing’ maybe, or even if you prefer a job, you really want your work to be meaningful - AND - lifestyle-friendly. These things are hugely important for you, and when you don’t have them, you feel very numb inside.
  • You are TOTALLY INTO living your life more for the experiences you can have, versus stuff. You are not particularly sure this 'work at a secure mediocre job, or business you now hate in order to retire' is the be all and end all of your life.
  • You feel that somehow this whole equation is not only about getting the right ideas figured out, but also your 'energy'. Your internal climate. That the best way through for you is going to involve both. I like to work on both.
  • Most importantly: You sense there’s something great inside you trying to get out, if you could just figure out WHAT the f**k it is! ;)

This coaching is by application only. For 2 reasons:

  • I want to make sure I'm a good fit for you, and you're a good fit for how I work. 
  • I do a lot of other things, but I work 1on1 with only 10 folks at any given time. First come basis. I typically dedicate 2 days/wk for private client work.

 

The best client fits are those who:

  • are entrepreneurial in nature, or very much into creating meaningful projects in the world. 
  • really want an approach with a mentor / friend that blends very grounded practical idea brainstorming, a desire to implement these ideas, AND...
  • very importantly - feel that their internal life, their loved ones, their lifestyle, and their dreams are really important to any moves they wish to make in the next chapter of their lives.
  • Are very interested ALSO in energy & meditation angles to learning more about themselves and how to use these understandings to help uncover the way forward.

 

IMPORTANT: Available session times are typically Mon-Fri between 10am and 3pm Eastern Standard Time (Guelph, Canada), by Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangout, or phone.

Some words from others...

Michele in Vancouver, Canada

"I think people are pretty amazing and I also think we need some help along the way. This winter I really wanted to accomplish my “Winter Project”.

I had a bit of a slump probably due to the weather and changing hormones ( I know some of you can relate ; ) so I sought the help of a coach named Alex Baisley.

I told Alex I needed help with my 'Winter Project'. He kept me focused even though at times my energy was waning. He reminded me that my feelings were temporary and to just do what I could day by day, and plug away I did, some days more than others ; )

One of the things that I really admired about his work was how he emphasized my lifestyle and what was important to me. I have done this with clients in the past, but have never done it in such a way that the work was backed into the lifestyle.

One of the reasons I'm telling you this is because I really believe that even just five coaching sessions (that’s how many I had with Alex) can make the world of difference and align you with what is important to you."

"I have had the privilege of working with Alex Baisley over the past 10 plus years. His unique and empowering skills and approach to helping his clients overcome obstacles to achieving their dreams is Life Changing. The personal growth that ensues from each and every session with Alex has catapulted me into the person I want to show up as in this world.

Alex has helped me take my dreams, ideas and hopes for my future both in personal and professional avenues to a whole new level of actualizing and transforming ideas into tangible, easy steps to achieving what I only hoped would be possible.

In my latest session with Alex, he transformed a major set-back that had me questioning if the challenges that had come up for me could adequately and professionally be overcome. With ease, calm and guidance Alex was able to change the perspective from which I was viewing the challenges into solution based discussions.  By asking 1 brilliant and introspective question, Alex provoked a response from me that included not only the solution to my troubling predicament, but also created the space for me to push past the original business concept we were working with to formulate business techniques and models to support and create a balanced lifestyle and dream career!

Alex focuses on the big picture ~ where we are in our lives, where we would like to be and what is important to us. It is not all about goal achievement with Alex, it is about creating a sustainable and abundant lifestyle with all of the trimmings!

Alex has many gifts. His outstanding compassionate, empathic and real-life approach to helping his clients’ with change, growth and realizing their dreams (big and small) is the foundation by which I have learned that change is okay, change is wonderful and the more I work on where I want to be in my life, the sooner I will see the results and move beyond the comforts of the known.

Alex’s unwavering support, excitement and encouragement goes above and beyond providing coaching services.  Alex is truly an advocate for the cause of seeing people flourish in their life!

With absolute confidence, I strongly recommend Alex’s services to anyone who wishes to experience positive change in their life."
