"The Heroic Coach Program has transformed the way I engage with life, shifting my paradigm from fear to purpose-driven excellence. It's not just about theories but about moving from understanding to daily application and eventually mastery. This has revolutionized how I operate in the three crucial areas of life: ENERGY, WORK, and LOVE. The program taught me to prioritize my well-being, emphasizing that 'sleep is the bridge from despair to hope.' This newfound focus on my health - eating, moving, sleeping - has rejuvenated my spirit, allowing me to serve others with greater presence and joy.
I want to stress that this transformational journey is not exclusive to my role as a CEO. It extends to every facet of my life – as a mother, a wife, a daughter, and a friend. We all play multiple roles, and each one matters deeply. The Heroic Coach Program guides you practically to bring your best self into all these roles, magnifying the beauty of your entire life experience. If you're on the fence, I strongly encourage you to embrace this opportunity. It's not just an investment in your professional growth, but a profound enhancement."

"Imho, the Heroic coaching program and aligned app are, by far, the most transformational human development that I have participated in over the years. In particular, having a blend of theory, mastery, AND especially practical practice is exceptional. All it needs is a social aspect and it is perfection. Oh wait, that is coming next :)
Heroic has been life-changing for me. It has made me a better father, husband, son, sibling, and leader by helping me take meaningful action every day to be the best person I can be in service to the world.
Heroic is deceptively simple. But the power of aligning your purpose to a handful of target actions everyday is unbelievably powerful. It has the ability to transform not only your life, but our world, one day and one person at a time."
