You have a definite purpose and a burning desire to bring your craft to the world, but you often live on your lone island trying to do everything by yourself. You’ve invested thousands of dollars in personal and professional development programs for over a decade, but still find yourself back at square one.

Everyone says you have so much potential, but you’re tired of it.

You hustled hard. You jump over hurdle after hurdle. But you’re still not making any traction. At least that’s what it feels like to you. Every time you get closer to the finish line, something else comes up and obstructs your path.

You wonder, Will I ever get 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?

 As life throws us around and beats us up, we become heavy-hearted. We’re discouraged when we fail. We’re afraid we won’t match up to our competition. I’m here to tell you there’s no one else like you in the world. The only person to compare yourself to today is who you were yesterday. It’s gonna take a lot of grit and undeniable support to change the world. 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’ve dedicated the past seven years helping impact-driven authors, coaches and entrepreneurs practice bravery every day to speak up, stand out, and change the world

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 get any psychobabble from me. We all need a little nudge (or a shin kicking) from time to time. To help us get out of our heads. To melt away self-doubt. And, to break through the fear.

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.”

What are people saying about my work?

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!!!!

Read what others are saying.

Who have I helped?

→ Fierce women who are stepping into their own feminine power

→ Social entrepreneurs who are building purpose-driven businesses from scratch

→ New life coaches who want to stand out from all the cookie cutter imitations out there

→ Small business owners who want to re-energize their sales force and blow away the competition

→ Driven professionals who want guidance and accountability in staying grounded as they climb the corporate ladder

How does coaching work?

I am a honed communicator with an extraordinary gift of claircognizance (clear knowing). I have a profound sense of knowing. I 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.

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. You’ll walk away with the confidence of knowing you’re not alone. You can stop chasing someone else’s dream and finally live on your terms.
