Hello, my friend

I’m John.  Welcome to my namesite. It’s a portal to all of my work.

By profession I’ve practiced law for 40+ years with some business consulting thrown in.

I also am a spiritual author and speaker to  know yourself and follow your inner voice to peace and awakening on the spiritual path.

Besides all that, I’m now providing life coaching to help people weather the storm and build something better.

If I can be of help across any of those areas, why not schedule a call?

Life Coaching

Life comes at us fast.  And while we’d like to think it’s a result of our careful planning and hard work, in reality that’s only part of the equation.

The balance — perhaps the most important part — is playing the hand life deals us, the one we didn’t plan but which is thrust upon us by situation and circumstance.

And then, addressing the things that hold us back while working toward something better.

Perhaps you’re ready to quit swimming upstream and try another way.

It involves knowing yourself, listening to your inner voice, and putting your life into context. Then, by getting into the flow of where you’re really going and getting the most out of what you’re experienced are bringing you.

However the problems are manifesting for you and your life, my goal is to help you get through it as best as possible, and at the same time lay the groundwork for a better tomorrow.

Whatever you need, I’m here to help.

God bless you indeed.

When you’re ready to take your next step in seeing things another way and being all you can be, check out:


Life and Death Support

The coronavirus has upset the apple cart of the carefully-crafted lives we once knew.

Worse, it’s brought into focus the temporal nature of our lives.

Death, no longer a down-the-road possibility, is now an ever-present threat. It drives home the realization that tomorrow is promised to no one .

I write wills, trusts, contracts and other documents to give you peace of mind knowing your family is taken care of.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Plan your affairs today.

Your family will be glad you did.


Project Development Consulting

You’ve got a vision of something big you want to create, but the details of getting it off the ground seem daunting. Or maybe you aren’t sure how to pull it all together or find the talent and resources to make it happen.

Perhaps I can help.

I provide visionary entrepreneurs with insight and advice to help them develop complex projects.

I also consult on website design, content and functionality – including doing your own podcasts, videos and more. As you can see from my sites, I’ve built a few over the years.

Let’s talk.

Business Startup Coaching

For those feeling an urge to serve or strike out on their own, peace can be fleeting until you do what you feel you need to do.

Breathing life into your vision involves a lot of things that can test the limits of your skills and know-how.

Worse, what you don’t know CAN hurt you, costing you valuable time, money and attention.

The expertise developed over my life in law and business will help fill in the gaps, so you can focus on doing what you do best — and give yourself a greater chance for success.
