"I started working with sebastian because I needed a transformation in my life. At the tiime I was too comfortable and was not doing enough to turn my business around. When I met sebastian we were able to click right from the beginning. He took the time to listen and diagnose my problems from the start, which allowed him to come up with a plab to help me make a change. With that being said he has helped me create goals, create more challenges, and come up with a vision to create a more clearer life for me. This also helped me develop my purpose in life, which completely shifted my mindeset and motivates me to move forward day to day. My business started to turn around quickly because of all of these changes. I started to make more money, do more activites, and enjoy my life more. Now I hold myself more accountable on a day to day because I have a clearer mindset. If it wasnt for sebastian I would not be where I am today. I cant thank sebastian enough for all of his hard work and time he put into me. I recommend him for any of your life purpose needs. He will listen and help you find the right tool to shift your life to the next gear. Thank you sebastian!!!’n"

"I have been working with Seb for the past 9 months and I have seen massive positive changes in both my business and my personal life. Seb has helped me start the business I had been putting off for the past few years, develop habits and routines that serve me and instilled beliefs in me about achieving the success and the life that I want. The changes I have seen cannot be understated. Seb has a huge amount of experience and knowledge and is unique in his ability to create and execute a plan of action with you that is tailored to your situation. He has an ability to lead you to insights previously unknown, so that they become ingrained, and to call you out your own bulls**t in a way that is like speaking with a trusted and respected friend. He was continuously available for a quick chat between sessions and over-delivered in every aspect of this job and I plan to work with him again in the future. I would highly recommend Seb to anyone who is serious about making significant, positive changes in their life and/or business."

"Seb has many qualities that have made our experience working together phenomenal. He has been able to help us redefine our business, create clarity around our goals, and help us find a path forward with intent and purpose. He has taught us how to create more value for our clients and how to value ourselves and the work that we do. He has been able to guide us to make difficult decisions towards changes with both a firmness and sensitivity to the situation that we are in. He is smart, willing, and innovative. He has lead us to create completely new and different concepts, helped take us out of the usual “box” that our business was in, devised ways to get our clients on board with an entire reframing of the business always helping us move closer to our business and life goals. He is always excited and enthusiastic about our sessions and makes himself available whenever we need him. He continues to push us and is determined to see us succeed. We feel very fortunate to have Seb on our team."

"The feeling of being stuck and lost was the best way to describe where I was. Originally I had hired Seb to help me with my online business, but since working with him, every area of my life has seen a major improvement. My poor mindset is now one of success, my self confidence is at an all time high, and my self sabotaging habits have been identified and controlled. I have learned how to set goals (and achieve them), define my problems and solve them, how to prioritize and be organized, and how to relax. The result is my online business that was struggling is about to achieve financial success that I never thought could happen. My personal life is the healthiest and happiest it’s ever been and through working with Seb, I am becoming the person I always wanted to be. "

"Sebastian has really helped me to gain clarity in finding my professional focus, drive and purpose. His unique learning pillars that I went through with him did not only help me understand more about my intrinsic motivation and what I wanted to thrive for professionally, but also what the most appropriate steps were for me to get there. Sebastian combines his natural charisma with a well-thought out custom learning program, designed to allow me to become the best version of myself. I thoroughly enjoyed our consulting sessions on topics such as leadership, marketing strategies, business, professional development and much more that we together set out to achieve. I can highly recommend Sebastian as your coach/consultant. I am proud and happy to call him my mentor, coach, and friend."

"Seb, you came into my life at exactly the right juncture. If it wasn't for you, I would not have known that a thriving online business was even possible for me. I had many struggles finding my footing in the market, finding the right niche and following through with a market strategy. Honestly, looking back now, I had so many ideas and researched so many possibilities, I would not have found clarity if it wasn't for your crystal clear guidance and support! Thank you so much for assisting me to unfold my unique service to the world. The online world is so competitive and rapidly changing, you have tremendous insight and experience with online business and entrepreneurship and your consulting is just the right mix of 'professional' and 'personal'. You are a gem in the true sense of the word."
