Coaching by Berni

You have a definite purpose and a burning desire to bring your craft to the world. But, you often live on your lone island so it’s challenging to make any traction. You’ve invested in personal and professional development for over a decade, but still find yourself back at square one.

You’re tired of all this hustling and wonder whether you’re ever going to be good enough to perform at your peak potential. Whether you’ll finally arrive there, where everyone else–but you–seems to be.

Why does giving a damn about wanting to help others have to feel so lonely and daunting at times?

It takes a lot of grit and undeniable support to hone your level of excellence. Doing it alone is no longer going to cut it. It takes a village to move mountains.

Hi, I’m Berni Xiong (shUNG), The Shin Kicking Life Spark. I believe we are already born to be creative, resourceful, and whole individuals. As life throws us around and beats us up, we become heavy-hearted. We become discouraged about our ability to succeed. Sometimes, all we need is a little nudge (or shin kicking) to help us get out of our own way. To melt away self-doubt. To achieve tangible and significant results.

This is no “crying on the couch in a stodgy office” kind of operation.

You already know what’s wrong. You’re not clueless about what to fix. So, you won’t be getting any psychobabble from me. My goal is to help you get focused, get noticed, and make more money so you can stop chasing someone else’s dream and finally live on your own terms.

I will NOT do this stuff:

  • be attached to your sob story
  • tell you what to do
  • do the work for you
  • give you unrealistic goals or expectations
  • bore you with “finding your passion” crap

I will do more of this stuff:

  • help you get to the heart of the issue in minutes
  • give you an objective perspective and outlook
  • be your sounding board when you have difficult choices to make
  • help you set goals and an action plan to break things down into manageable parts
  • be your accountability partner inspiring you to “git r done.”

Who have I helped?

  • Small businesses going through growing pains
  • Career employees rapidly climbing the corporate ladder
  • Women stepping into their own feminine power
  • Entrepreneurs building a new business from scratch

Your honesty, integrity, and genuine joy you exhibit during the session is fantastic. You have a wonderful way of helping self-doubt melt away; I think it is because you genuinely see someone’s value!!! You F’n rock Berni!!!!

How does coaching work?

I am a honed communicator with an extraordinary gift of claircognizance (clear knowing). I have a profound sense of knowing that can help you get to the heart of the matter in minutes. I cannot and will not promise you overnight success; there’s no such thing. I will be an objective partner and sounding board for you when you have a difficult decision to make. Within one session, you’ll discover what’s preventing you from achieving effective and sustainable results. By the end of our session, you’ll be ready to kick fear in the shins and turn your ideas into big wins. I can work with you from anywhere in the world through coaching via phone or Skype .
