Move the Chains

“I was just getting by in corporate America,” Dan Kimble recalls. “I made a good living, but the money was no longer enough.”

Returning to school, Dan discovered Life Coaching from a respected professor — and everything changed. He became more mindful of his own value and set out to change how he serves the world. Today, you will find Dan working alongside top executives helping them understand ways of becoming more effective leaders.


Dan Kimble’s big win came one day when he was speaking to a large audience about racing motorcycles. Particularly anxious that day, he could have allowed his anxiety to freeze him up. Instead, he realized he could use that anxiety to his advantage.

“Once I grasped this concept,” he says, “the talk went very differently. I felt proud of myself for turning what could have been a disaster into a success.”

He now incorporates this experience into the work he does with executives to help them move past stumbling blocks to become more effective leaders.

“More often than not, what gets in our way is ourselves. I enjoy helping people discover what I did that day, turning what feels like a negative into a positive.”
