Is Your Success a Limited Proposition?
After fighting my way out of the isolation and desolation of burnout, I realized that I was going about "success" all wrong.
From there I got brutally honest with myself, clarified my needs and desires, figured out what was blocking me from the life I wanted, and started taking risks. It's changed everything.
Success is no longer a one-way proposition based on my work accomplishments. It's expansive and touches every area of my life.
You can have that, too. I can help.
Burnout is the dirty secret of modern manhood.
So if you're a guy who's feeling exhausted, constantly spinning your wheels and getting nowhere, and convinced that "it just is what it is", don't worry. That's normal these days.
And listen... I get it. As a guy, you probably don't want to talk about it, let alone to another guy. But take it from me--a guy who almost lost it all by suffering in silence--it's way better to deal with it head on. In fact, it's the courageous thing to do.
Let's talk about how I can help you get to the kind of successful life you want--the one where you're lit up instead of burned out.
I coach men into expansive success
It took me 8 years to figure out how to end my burnout for good so I could find the wide-ranging success I had been seeking all along.
The way I got there might surprise you at first. But once you hear what I learned along the way, I think you'll see why it works so well.
If you're ready to feel expansively successful too, grab half an hour of my time and I'll explain what I mean and how it works.
How I Help
Every service I offer has been designed to serve a common purpose:
Helping men create the lively, healthy, and creative experiences they want both at work and in their personal lives.
A cornerstone of my work is the deep experience I offer to leaders as their coach. I've climbed the same mountains and learned that it doesn't have to be "lonely at the top." So that I can honor the depth of this work, I only work with eight 1:1 clients at a time.
Beyond Burnout Groups
Whether in a 1-day intensive setting or as a 4-month mastermind group, I help unleash the power of collective minds to lead teams and organizations beyond burnout and into the sustainable version of success you've been seeking.
Expansive Success Groups
The old narrative for men says we should focus on providing and achieving, even if/when it pushes us into unmanageable stress.
The new narrative allows us to provide and achieve, while also enjoying the richness of a life lived fully. I call that "expansive success". You deserve to enjoy it, too.
In my sessions with Jim he helped me figure out what to let go of, and had a lot of advice on which direction to focus instead. Week by week, I was able to clear out the parts of my stress that I could control and improve my situation.
- Chris B., CEO
Jim forces me to answer questions that I need to work through and address, but would avoid if left to my own devices.
- Noah Smith, CEO
Jim not only helped me remember the value of my unconventional career and life journey, how I learn, and my outlook on things. He also introduced me to new tools and new strategies for getting through the modern work world and life!
- D. M., Tech Consultant
I worked with Jim as the coach for a small group and it was excellent. Of course, he was well prepared on our calls, leading the group members on a journey to better understand ourselves and our inner motivators.
It was a great experience and I highly recommend working with Jim.

Just so you know it's real
I didn't end up writing a book on burnout, shame and intimacy just for fun.
I wrote it because life keeps coming at me with big-time challenges. (And it always will.)
No. I wrote it for moments like the one in this video, shot in September of '22.
I always will need the tools that Expansive Intimacy offers me to stay on top of life.
Expansive Intimacy: How “Tough Guys” Defeat Burnout is many things.
It’s a memoir of my personal journey through burnout.
It’s a research project that unearthed a difficult revelation that told me I had struck a root cause of men’s burnout.
And it’s a roadmap to a new way, one that allows a guy to maintain his “tough guy” status while enjoying the joy, liberation, and richness of a life lived intimately.
