This requires harnessing belief and motivation from within, drawing on inspiration from others, and maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

John connects over 35 years of experience as a growth coach, strategic planner, and execution management expert. He  leads his team in providing unique insight and wisdom sharing through our proprietary web-based toolkits and personal and business growth systems.

Coaching Program Manager, Certified PI Associate

Nancy coordinates the needs of our clients and manages the planning and rollout of our coaching programs. Acting as a direct client interface, Nancy helps shape the “WOW the Client Experience” that is the primary focus of the Inspirit Growth team.

Prior to joining the Inspirit Growth team, Nancy spent 20 years guiding and coaching her three sons in The Five Fingers of Life Philosophy™ that she helped design and activate over their lives. Each graduated from Yale University and have since gone on to Harvard and Columbia graduate programs with careers in GE and JP Morgan. Many of these fundamentals that helped shape the lives of these young men are rooted in The Life Balancing Breakthrough™ that is a keystone of the Inspired Company Coaching Program and in the mantra she coined for business owners… “balance your business to balance your life.”
