Sometimes change happens super gradually, and sometimes in lightning strikes. Ryan’s was definitely the latter.

Ten years ago, on a seemingly random walk through London, Ryan Mathie experienced a profound breakdown that became a huge breakthrough.

Since then, he’s been incredibly motivated to help other people see how much they’re getting in their own way (like he was, pre-breakthrough), and help them set themselves free. He really LOVES busting through blocks, so we challenged him to help our listeners bust through their oldest, crustiest problems.

We picked submissions from six listeners for Ryan to tackle, and he totally delivered. We got into questions like:

We also got into what almost every submission we got had in common and what’s often at the root of our most difficult blocks, regardless of what it may look like on the surface.

We’re hosting a free, LIVE online workshop on Monday, January 28, at 1pm Eastern, and we’d love for you to be there!

How to find your passion in 2019.

If you’ve been feeling stuck, overwhelmed, confused, and uncertain about your direction in both your life and career, this is a REALLY great place for you to start.

We’re packing everything we’ve learned in the last 7 years about how to figure out what to do with your life into this workshop (well, everything that will fit in an hour, at least!).

We only do these kinds of free workshops a few times per year, so join us while you can! There WILL be a free replay video for people who register, so sign up even if you can’t be there live.


Our twice-yearly online group coaching program, the Passion Plan Virtual Experience, is going to be opening for enrollment on Monday, January 28!

It’s a 6-week course (with a mix of videos, workbook assignments, and live Google hangouts with the two of us) that helps you figure out what to do with your life. Think of it as the “AP Life” class you should have taken in high school, but never got the chance!

If you’re on the VIP list, you’ll be the first to know about our early bird pricing and the handful of free coaching sessions we’re going to be giving away!

We’re only taking 50 people in this round, and enrollment is first-come, first-served. If you want in, you’ll definitely want to be on this list.

Join the VIP list here.

  1. This was great! Thank you Rachel, kristen and Ryan! As Ryan was addressing “W” a question came to mind for “W” to ask herself. And that is – “Is there anyone in my life who would have a problem with me succeeding?” We have a tendency to lower our awareness to be associated with others. It’s the ultimate trap. It is essential to find others who not only want us to succeed, but demand it, in order to make a better world. So if we’re people-pleasing those who want to keep us small, it’s torture for those who want greatness.
