A Quick Note About My Coaching:
Many life and career coaches are more “counselor” than “coach,” which means the pace of their coaching tends to be slow and their focus is on the past. Sorry, but I’m not that kind of coach! My focus is on the future and my goal is to get you moving as fast as possible. Additionally, my two overarching values in coaching are to help you achieve immediate results and ongoing empowerment.
First, I help people achieve immediate results so that they can make the move to the life and work they love by enabling them to:
- Discover their Vocational Calling and be able to articulate it in one sentence.
- Build a Vocational Compass that includes a 5-part Vocational Filter. Both the Compass and Filter enables clients to take any job, career option, or business idea and determine (on a scale of 0-to-5) if that work is a good fit for them. This process brings significant objectivity and insight to a decision that most people see as random and subjective.
- Decide the best 2-3 Vocational Paths to pursue.
- Create a Vocational Map in order to navigate the move to the life and work they love.
Second, my highest goal is ongoing empowerment. In other words, the process above is not just about taking the next best steps for your life and work, it’s also about equipping you to “live it forward” in your life and work for the rest of your life.
Does the Live It Forward coaching process work? I’ve served over 400 clients and below are loads of testimonies that indicate the kind of results I have helped people achieve. The key, however, is these clients DID IT! They get ALL the credit! I coached them on how to get results, but they followed through, took action, and experienced fantastic results.
I love the fact that Kent didn’t tell me what career I should choose, but instead helped me discover my strengths and talents, as well as my weak areas, and then helped me process things by giving me the tools I needed to make good decisions on my own. His Envision It Forward COMPASS is an incredible tool — it helped me understand my “true north” as far as my Vocational Calling and career path is concerned. It also gave me a filter that has allowed me to objectively understand which jobs are great fits for me, which are good fits, and which are poor fits. Because of Kent, I have a well thought-out plan for my life and career that will help me accomplish those things that are most important and dear to my heart! —Jonathan Houston
This is one of the best investments I have made for my future and for my family’s future. Kent’s tools and style of coaching help to eliminate all the scary “what ifs?” I use to fear when thinking about my vocational future. I can now state in one sentence my Vocational Calling, and I have a clear vision for how to fulfill this purpose. I can’t imagine continuing through life knowing that life could be better, but not knowing how to change it. Kent’s coaching gave me the tools I needed and the courage to change my course. —Alana Mokma
If you are trying to figure out what you should be doing, Kent is the person with whom you should connect. His assignments challenge you to really think about what is important to you, what interests you, and what you enjoy. Starting with the DISC and the Strengthfinder 2.0 allowed Kent to really understand what makes me tick so that he could personalize each sessions to help me move forward toward defining and meeting my goals. Never did the experience feel “generic.” As for Kent’s promise that he would help me discover my Vocational Calling…well, let’s just say skeptical doesn’t begin to describe what I thought about being able to actually do that. Yet this doubting Thomas doubts no more! I now know my Vocational Calling, have a Vocational Compass to guide me, and am working on a Vocational Plan to get there! —Erin Shaw
Kent is very friendly and easy going. Plus, he has a ton of positive energy and is very supportive and encouraging. Bottom line, Kent’s personal coaching was very helpful for me in defining who I am, where I currently was, where I wanted to go, and what I needed to do to get there. —Peter Scarpa
The best thing about Kent’s coaching was the way he was able to connect with me personally, his outstanding knowledge, and his incredible servant-heart! I would highly recommend Live It Forward to anyone who is in a career crises, needs a job tuneup, or assistance with finding their Vocational Calling. —Steven Blythe
For years I knew that I was unhappy in my career, but didn’t quite know why. I only knew that it just wasn’t “me.” Within the first session, Kent was able to demonstrate precisely why my current career wasn’t the right fit for me, and suddenly my dissatisfaction made sense! I now understand that I have certain qualities that lend themselves to the type of work that I’m doing, which is one of the reasons I’ve been successful; but so many of my strengths aren’t being utilized, which is why all of the “success” still leaves me feeling empty. After the first meeting, I felt incredibly validated, but was unsure what to do with these realizations. Kent was right there at the next session to help with my uncertaintity. For so long, I felt like there was a brick wall standing inbetween me and a new career—a career that’s a manifestation of my calling in life. Kent helped me realize that no wall is impassable; it’s all just a matter of knowing who you are, acknowledging your Vocational Calling and Vocational Filter, and fearlessly setting out on the path that leads to where you want to go. If you’ve spent your professional life questioning your career choice, wondering if there’s something else out there that will help you feel more fulfilled, there is no question that you should explore Kent’s personal coaching! —Jennifer Bottoms
Kent Julian literally changed my life! I was successful in my career, but I hated my jobs. It wasn’t a single company, because I jumped from company-to-company dissatisfied. It was my career that needed to be fixed. Kent helped me discover my Vocational Calling, set goals, and make adjustments to my life (without quitting my “day job”) to Live It Forward in a happy life. Confucius said, “If you find a career you love, you’ll never work a day in your life!” I no longer work, because I am in a career I love. Thank you, Kent! —Jay Markunas
The best part Kent’s personal coaching was his thoroughness, honesty, and sincerity. My experience with him was right on target, and he was open to issues I wanted to talk about while still getting through the coaching agenda we needed to tackle. Kent helped me work through the haze to find a direction in my career to pursue. I can’t think of anything in the process that I would have changed…it served me perfectly. If you are looking for honest ways to change your life and are willing to listen to thorough (and sometimes “tough love” input), then Kent can help you! —Heath Wall
What I liked best about the Kent’s coaching was: (1) The clarity of the process—while greatly challenging on many levels both personally and professionally, it was very straightforward to grasp and follow! (2) The accountability—I realized that 90 percent of the success from coaching with Kent is my being accountable to myself to live the system! (i.e. to Live It Forward!) (3) The implementation of the process—I now have a solid plan for my future!! If you really want to change your future and start living your dream now, Kent is the coach for you! —Susan Downs
I was very happy with my experience with Kent and his Live It Forward coaching Process. He demonstrated genuine interest and was extremely generous with his time. He explained clearly and listened well, which made his coaching truly applicable to me. And his coaching is effective—he pushed me forward to greater self knowledge and gave me a solid, concrete action plan to follow. I would recommend Kent to anyone! I have been stuck for about 12 years struggling to find Vocational Calling and work I love. Thanks to Kent’s coaching, I finally experienced that breakthrough! —Anthony Ferraiola
I greatly appreciated Kent’s authentic desire to see me succeed and achieve my Vocational Calling in life. He helped me narrow down the career choices I was considering from any and every opportunity out there to the few wise choices that fit my Vocational Calling and Vocational Filter. —Samuel Abraham
If you’ve ever felt that you were meant to do something, but you’ve never been able to put your finger on what it is…Kent can help! It may be something you’ve never thought of before or it might be right in front of your face. Whatever the case, working with Kent can help you find the answer and get you moving towards your ultimate vocation. Don’t waste anymore time wondering what if, or feeling lost in your career. Let Kent help you find your way out of the fog. Kent’s coaching works! But even better, he works! —Greg Miller
Each session with Kent was so encouraging. This is one of the best things I have ever done for my life and career. It was totally worth the time and money!! —Rich Fox
Kent helped me understand the scrambled mess of thoughts and feelings I had about my life and career to such a degree that I could finally make definite decisions about my future with confidence. He not only helps you see your Vocational Calling and what kind of work you should be pursuing, but he also shows you step-by-step how to pursue it. —Neysa Crist
This process is well worth the cost financially and personally. You have to dedicate time to the process, but Kent is there for you every step of the way and encourages you to be the person you are meant to be. His support for me throughout the entire process was unwavering, the Vocational Compass he helped me develop is an amazing tool, and I so appreciated Kent’s contagious enthusiasm for wanting me to succeed. If you want to change your career, you attitude, your life, or all three, Kent’s personal coaching is the way to go! —Miranda Huggins
Give this gift to yourself, the sooner the better! —Mike Jorgenson
This investment was so worthwhile for me! The Live It Forward coaching experience helped me discover my Vocational Calling so that I can find works that best fits me. It also gave me much more confidence in going after work that fits my Vocational Calling. I have a renewed passion to find exactly what the Lord wants in my life and, thanks to Kent, I have the tools to do it. —Michael Green
It was one of the most enlightening, encouraging, and motivating experiences of my life. I really felt that this coaching helped me break away from “inside the box” thinking and discover who I am and what I am designed to do. It would be worth every penny if Kent was charging 2-3 times more. I’m sure you will reap the benefits many times over if you follow through with everything that you discover. Thanks, Kent! —Kevin Edwards
More from Kevin: From the first session with Kent, you start to gain insights into what you are truly called to do. And what’s cool is Kent doesn’t attempt to find the way for you; but instead, he asks specific questions in which the answers guide you in the right direction. This gives you a sense of accomplishment of being highly involved in discovering your Vocational Calling along with your true gifts and talents. Kent is great at taking those discoveries and helping you formulate a plan of action for your life.
If you are seriously committed to improving yourself, this coaching is for you! Being introduced to the Vocational Compass was amazing—this single tool has changed my life! —Joshua Harshman
Kent’s one-on-one coaching is so worth it! He is honest and tailors everything (his coaching style and the length of his sessions) to your individual needs. I learned so much about me and about how to move forward. Additionally, I now truly understand why I am unhappy with my work. Before I knew I was unhappy, but I couldn’t figure out why. I am amazed at how Kent took random answers to questions and helped me discover my life’s purpose and my Vocational Calling (the tools that helped me understand why I am unhappy with my work). These tools were spot on, and I could have never figured this out on my own. —Wendy Marple
Kent and the Live It Forward process has made a significant impact on my life. I had struggled with identifying my Vocational Calling for nearly a decade. Not only was Kent able to help me discover my Vocational Calling, but he did it quickly and effectively. After the first coaching session, I had new hope and a renewed energy for myself and my family. Investing in Live It Forwards was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I’m now ready to pursue a career to match my Vocational Calling and God-given talents. The direction and support Kent provided is something I will always remember and truly appreciate. —Bill Elliott
Kent provided personalized service, attentiveness to detail, and plenty of encouragement and support. His personal coaching is a great way to discover or clarify your passions and interests, as well as a fantastic way to find the work that best suits you. —Chris Colville
Kent helped us to find our Vocational Calling, know what questions to ask and how to answer them, and how to be proactive in a job search for both traditional and non-traditional work. Kent’s coaching methods are unique in that he pushes you to get out of your comfort zone and challenges you to discover things about yourself you never knew were there. —Charles & Jennie Pusser
Live It Forward is a wonderful concept full of so much meaning. Kent encourages you to live your best life by finding what it is that makes you happy and ultimately making a living doing that! Through Kent and his coaching we were able to find the career that fits the lifestyle we have been wanting and do what we love. He is full of terrific information and knows how to lead you down the right career path, as well as keeping you organized the whole way. —Buddy & Lynn Moore
I have already told friends about Kent and Live It Forward. In a high-achieving and fast-paced city like Washington D.C., people often race from one job to the next without really pausing to consider where they really want to be. Kent has an incredible ability to get to the heart of the issue and leaves you with no doubt that he honestly is invested in ensuring you reach the goals you set for yourself. —Ann Shapiro
As someone who was in search of more than “just a job,” Kent helped me define my “Vocational Calling” and purpose in work and gave me the direction that I was lacking. He also helped to clarify some strengths I had yet to discover and enabled me to see how I might utilize those strengths in the next step along my vocational journey. Lastly he helped me develop a “Vocational Filter” to use when evaluating work opportunities. My Live It Forward experience and work with Kent was well worth it! —Brian Whetstone
I had researched several career coaches and counselors before making a decision to use Kent’s personal coaching. The other coaches had programs but they were too vague. After reviewing the Live it Forward website and talking with Kent, I knew his program would be a good fit for what I needed. Specifically, the structure of the Live it Forward fit exactly the step-by-step process Kent outlines on his website. Additionally, Kent was very encouraging, especially when I hit “roadblocks,” and he helped me to focus on the opportunities in front of me and not get bogged down on limitations. I made progress with each session, and Kent gave me the tools and guidance to get to where I want to be. —Angela Blackwood
Kent has the passion to help others achieve their dreams and goals! He is an everyday guy who is getting awesome results in his life, and he taught us—step-by-step—how to do exactly the same. Even more, Kent was super flexible in meeting our needs. He got to know us as individuals and was concerned for us as people, not just what careers we were going to pursue. His coaching strengthened our marriage and improved our communication, as well as helped us in pursuing the careers we love. You cannot put a price on the multitude of benefits we received from Kent’s coaching! —Caleb and Lisa Wilson
It is amazing to me how far I have come so quickly through working with Kent. In the past it has taken me several years on my own to make the kind of progress I have made with Kent. Having Kent as an advocate helped me put the pieces together. I feel better about my personal mission and purpose than I ever have before. Kent has now launched me in the direction that I know I need to go. It was truly a pleasure to work with Kent. I would always look forward to every correspondence with Kent because he provided value every time. —Christopher Jones
More from Christopher Jones: Kent always made sure he was looking out for my best interests. What was most important to Kent was that he helped me produce tangible results for me from each meeting and e-mail. I know Kent is involved in a lot of other things, but I never felt like I was second fiddle to anything or anyone. He also provided quick turnaround responses to each of my e-mails. In fact, he always surpassed the expectation he created. Bottom line: Kent provided constant support and encouragement during each meeting and e-mail. Kent’s encouragement confirmed the positive progress I was making, and his enthusiasm really helped me remain motivated!
Great news…we paid off all our debt, my piano lessons took off, I found another music-related business that ties into piano that I can do simultaneously without compromising either, and I am a month away from quitting my dead-end job! I owe much of my success to you for helping me make decisions that fall in line with my Envision It Forward COMPASS and for helping me strategically plan out my Aim It Forward MAP. And all of this has happened for me within a matter of months. Thanks so much! —Heidi Lueck
If you are questioning your career path, you should let Kent Julian walk you through the process of finding your passions in life and your vocational calling. I was miserable in my career and did not even know where to start to find the right one. Now, I have a detailed plan for finding the right career for me. Kent asked tough questions in a very safe environment. Plus, Kent lives what he shares in his coaching sessions and believes everyone should have a fulfilling life and career. This has definitely been a life changing experience for me! —Brian Helms
You MUST give Live It Forward coaching a try! During the coaching process, I felt safe — I knew I could express myself without being judged or criticized. And practically, Kent’s perspective and insight opened my eyes to new ideas and ways of thinking, and his method of keeping track of goals is the best I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to figure out life all on your own, that’s why God puts people in our lives to help us. Kent has been one of those people in my life. —Rebecca Cengiz
People should value their future more. If they are not seeing different results in their life, maybe it is time to ask for help. I finally did and working with Kent Julian has changed my life! He genuinely cared about me and my success. He challenged me to set goals, stay focus, get things done, and push myself. Bottom line, within a few weeks of working with Kent, I landed a new job and received a $12,000 salary increase from my previous job. My new company also purchased a car for me, which in today’s world is estimated at an extra $12,000-$15,000 a year expense. Kent’s job search method was definitely the most effective way of not only getting a job, but a job that I knew I wanted. I loved his willingness to go the extra mile, and now I wake up every morning with a renewed passion for life. Thanks Kent, my future is priceless! —John Ballon
Kent’s coaching gets results — by the time we finished, I had resigned from a job that was eating away at my soul and had started my own business that made $7,700 in the first two months. Kent gave me the courage, mindset, and hands-on tools to make this happen. But this is just the beginning, because now I feel like there is hope that I can work in an area that I truly enjoy. My life is forever changed because of the Live It Forward Coaching Process. —Andy Richardson
Working with Kent is an eye opener! It is the best investment a person can make in himself or herself!! Kent gave me a better sense of purpose that I was searching for and he really took time — extra time — with me in order to walk me step-by-step through his REAL Success process. It’s a powerful process that has equipped me to do a proactive job search that I could not have done beforehand. Additionally, by the time we were done with the FIRST MEETING, it was clear to me why I was so unsatisfied with my present job and exactly what kind of position I should pursue. I had been unsatisfied for years but could never put my finger on the reason why. Just a few hours with Kent helped me answer the biggest roadblock in my work life. I am so grateful for this insight Kent gave me, and the power I now know I have to do something about it. —Michele Konan
Working with Kent is an absolute pleasure. He has a ton of talent and enthusiasm for coaching. As a client, I experienced positive results in my focus areas almost immediately after our first meeting. Kent’s tools for success in goal-setting, planning, and strategic implementation are truly remarkable, and I would recommend the Live It Forward Coaching Process to anyone seeking to change careers, launch a side business, or simply looking for a more balanced work/life scenario. —John Wessel of www.johnwesselcopy.com
There is immense value in Kent’s coaching! He is down-to-earth and trustworthy — a coach who clearly has the client’s purpose and success in mind. Kent helped me immensely in focusing my job search by helping me zero in on positions that more in line with my true self. Even though I had read “48 Days to the Work You Love” and had taken the DISC Personality Profile previously, I didn’t truly understand what was authentic about me until Kent brought it to the surface. By our second session, I realized I had wasted over 82 hours in my job search by looking for work that was not in line with my personality, passions, or talents. By discovering what is unique about me, I was able to streamline and focus my job search. I am lucky to have only been in a rut for 6 months…some people have been in a rut for much longer and are missing out on getting to the next level with Kent. —Jeff Williams
Kent Julian’s career coaching provided the life and work road map I needed! As a young professional, I was overworked, under-paid, and left wondering if I was forever doomed to trade my happiness for the security of a paycheck. Kent’s coaching helped me create a plan that ensured I would have both happiness and a satisfying income. I am now happy to report that in just a few short months since my last session with Kent, I have:
- Gone from working 50-60 hours a week as an operations manager to leveraging my experience in the fitness industry to gain several consulting clients which will pay me more money for less time.
- Started my own fitness-supplement company.
- Voiced my desire to go into business for myself to my employer, and he offered me 50% ownership of the business and all of its assets (one of the most successful personal training business’ in the southwest) at a tiny fraction of what it’s worth.
Simply put: You will get the ultimate return on your investment when hiring Kent Julian as your career coach. —Brandon Douglas
Kent gives you a new set of eyes that allow you to see yourself, your personal goals, and your natural talents differently. Then, he helps you apply all these ingredients to the work world. Amazingly, he makes the blending of all these factors just work out. For me personally, he really pointed me in the correct “career path” direction based on my Vocational Calling. I needed someone to help guide me through my own head/thoughts because I just couldn’t get past my own indecision. And his style is very positive and direct—which worked well for me. Bottom line, for the first time ever I was able to see what I really wanted in to pursue in the workplace. —Christine Riley
For ten years I had no idea what I was meant to do. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to have my own business. Kent walked me through the process of discovering myself and helped me find a business that would best fit me. He then helped me develop a business plan and set goals to achieve my dream of owning my own business. My life will be forever changed thanks to the clear direction I now have. Anyone wanting a change in their life — whether it be starting a business, changing careers, or getting more out of their current situation — would definitely benefit from Kent’s coaching. It is the best investment you could make in yourself. —Luke Winter
Kent coached me to success in getting a clear vision of what I really want to do with my life — career, family, and life-long contributions. His holistic approach, directness, insight, and high energy helped me gain the confidence to go forward with my dream! If you are struggling to find your life and career niche, Live It Forward and Kent will be the best investment in yourself that you can make to gain a sense of direction and clarity. —Tracee Mason
The Live It Forward Coaching Process is definitely a complete package. First off, Kent is willing and has a great ability to listen. He really hears you! Next, his personal approach is awesome—he helped us outline, plan, and set our goals. In fact, his ability to help us take abstract ideas and turn them into tangible, achievable goals amazed us. Finally, the carryover benefits of his coaching touched and benefited every area of our lives—we LOVED Kent’s focus on intentionality in both life and career. Bottom line…everyone, no matter their age or career status, should invest in themselves by doing personal coaching with Live It Forward! —Vinny & Diana Aldrich
Kent is exceptionally good at what he does! His inside-out approach and methods are very powerful and really enable you to breakthrough barriers by getting at the core issue(s), yet he keeps things simple enough that you can remain focused and not get overwhelmed with details. I walked away from the process with a much stronger, more confident sense of myself and what I am best suited to do. One other thing…Kent is very personable and has genuineness with his clients, which shows he cares about helping you “Live It Forward.” —Aaron Harris
I really felt that we achieved what we set out to do, which was take all the ideas I’ve had and narrow them down into a focused plan and direction for my life. Not only that, but I feel that I have been given a set of tools by which I can measure future decisions about my job, career, and life direction. This is a great process and I whole-heartily recommend Kent’s personal coaching sessions to anyone who wants to get a clear life and career focus. —Jeremy Jenkins
Kent has a genuine heart in helping people connect with their hidden talents with clarity and bringing them to life. His guidance is real, down to earth, and enlightening!

Thanks Kent for your vision and compassion! —Rob Clinton of www.180coach.com
Working with Kent Julian is truly one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I needed a trained, objective career coach to help me see myself the way I’m wired and gifted and how my unique wiring and giftedness can be used in a career. I would also have to say that God used Kent at this particular time in my life to throw me a life preserver, to help me get unstuck and open my eyes to incredible opportunities. Kent gave me solid tools for the path ahead, and I will always be grateful! —Suzanne Rowe
Kent Julian’s coaching service is tremendous! His motivation is out of this world, and his knowledge and education of the coaching process is second to none. Kent can provide you with a clear vision of the unique path you want your life to follow. —Ryan Kennedy
The service Kent provides helps you see internally who you are and figure out exactly how you are wired. It helps you get focused on where you want to go in life, and then how to develop a plan to get there. Even more, the life plan he helps you develop is all about creating the life you want to live first, and then discovering how a career fits into that life…not the other way around. —Brandon Leininger
Kent’s coaching is well worth the investment. Kent will guide you through an awesome self-discovery process that will show you what your talents really are and how they can be applied in the marketplace. Kent’s coaching will also teach you in areas other than career about how you can effectively grow as an individual. —John Waltz
Life is really too short to be doing something you don’t love. If you feel stuck or don’t know how to change or if you know you don’t like what you’re doing, but don’t know what else to do, then Kent can really help. Kent’s program helps you really focus in on YOU — it helps you figure out who you really are and what you really will enjoy doing. Going through his coaching can bring you from being scared of change, to being ready to Live it Forward. —Zach Smith
One of the things that impacted me a great deal is the Live It Forward “Art of Intentionality” System that Kent presented. Because of this, I am no longer wishing about changes I want to make; life changes are happening for me as a result! I am blessed to have taken the opportunity to make a personal step to invest in me. —Karena Celestino
Kent’s transparency and the tools he makes available will catapult anyone in their journey for really living life with passion and purpose! The resources he shared with me helped me develop the systems I need to be effective in my life. Keep it up and thanks Kent!! —Doug Wurtz
Vocational coaching with Kent Julian and Live It Forward is time and money well spent! Kent keeps you on track with your goals and motivates you to take action. He is an excellent listener who can empathize with what you are facing. But he doesn’t stop there. His passion drives you to strive to be and achieve more. Life and career coaching with Kent was a great experience! —Barry Warn
I really appreciated your talk on “The Art of Intentionality” and the information on the “Live It Forward Goal Setting System.” I was very encouraged and challenged. Your process is so complete, yet so simple. I just wanted to let you know that it has gone a long way with me! —Sam Boone
I wanted to say thanks again for your help and the momentum that you provided in landing me this job. I know that it was all part of God’s plan, but had you not been willing to give the time, energy, and observation to my situation, who knows where I’d be right now. Bottom line — thanks! You are a leader of leaders and anyone who knows you can validate this reality. —Guy Wasko
Kent’s life and career coaching is great at getting you to focus on areas of your business (new or established) that make you strive. Also, Kent has the ability to cast a vision on the possibilities that you may not be able to see for yourself. —Kerry Kruegler of www.mycmsite.com/kkruegler
Kent provides great insight for young people who need to find a career that fits their strengths, abilities, and passions. He provides a structure by which one can really achieve life goals. And to fill you in on the details, since working with Kent and using the strategies he suggested, I had an interview with a company with which I really wanted to work and was offered a job with better pay and great opportunity for advancement. Thanks Kent! —David Petranek
Kent coaches with enthusiasm and patience, which provides an ideal environment for the client to really search within himself to find what it takes to Live It Forward. And Kent has an amazing ability to help a client discover and tap into innate strengths and abilities. —Scott Schuling
If you want different results in your life, take advantage of this positive and action-oriented coaching! Kent will give you practical ways, tailored to your individual circumstances, of meeting your personal challenges and opportunities head-on. When all was said and done, Kent helped me realize I was far more qualified than I could ever imagine, and that I had many more options than I would otherwise envision for myself. Additionally, he made available a wide range of resources, be it Internet search engines or inspirational and educational reading on career topics. That was especially important for me because it reiterated concepts from Kent’s coaching and made the journey far less overwhelming and more focused. Instead of being a victim of circumstance, I became an informed and empowered individual more equipped to engage in my life, to clarify my career options, and to make positive choices for myself, my family, and my future. For me, it was about being empowered! —Melissa Smith
If you want someone who can excite and motivate you while giving you incomparable insight and strategies, Kent is your man! —Tim Spensor
My time with Kent allowed me to perceive characteristics in me—which I previously thought of as obstacles—as unique strengths and indicators pointing me to the passions and skills that I can use most effectively. It was a total paradigm shift! What’s more, it has put me in the position to pursue career opportunities that not only pay the bills, but also bring a sense of fulfillment by doing the work I was created to do. —David Watson
I have not been this upbeat or excited since…well, I can’t remember when! But I can tell you this—Kent Julian was the springboard for my thought patterns changing. He didn’t know me, but he believed in me and set me in the right direction. For that, I will be eternally grateful. As I look back on my coaching sessions with Kent, I realize that for the first time in a long time, I started to dream again thanks to Kent! —Brian Bayless
Unfortunately we often get too focused on getting through the next 48 hours, and we don’t spend anytime really looking forward. Even the basic thought process of how old my children will be in the next five years helped me to realistically plan how I want to achieve my goals. Kent helped me look forward five years and discover what I want to do then, instead of focusing on the problems I currently am facing. He also helped me understanding what goals I want to accomplish and then helped me create a realistic five-year plan to move towards those goals. Thanks Kent! —Francee Preston
This is truly a life-focusing experience! Kent is an amazing coach who’s experience and background allowed him to relate to my life-stage, as well as my aspirations and frustrations. He helped me clarify what’s most important, and based on that information, he helped me develop a strategy for getting to where I want and need to be. —Daniel Villanueva
The Live it Forward coaching process was an excellent opportunity that allowed me to learn how to analyze the appropriacy of jobs/careers based on how those jobs match my personality, to prioritize and clarify the factors that should direct my efforts in a job search, and to develop a structured plan to follow through and achieve my goals. —Daniel Young
I would encourage anyone who’s at a career crossroads to contact Kent. I found that Kent took my progress as seriously as I did and that was an encouragement to me to follow through with full energy. What’s more, Kent listened. He took the lead when necessary, yet stopped and listened to gain context of my situation.

Kent, I just wanted to update you on my progress. I am opening up the first of our fitness clubs in about 3 weeks. I am very excited and look forward to getting it up and running. I have been teaching baseball lessons, and Lynn started a small Palates studio that is really taking off. You helped me a lot, but what meant the most to me is how you helped me learn to push through the obstacles that pop up in order to reach a goal. When I started the baseball business on the side, I had a bunch of problems pop up that I had to just be a “bulldog” and keep making it happen. Apply the principles that you taught me really prepared me for the fitness facility we are starting. Setting goals and putting on the mindset that nothing is going to stop me from achieving the goals has been the biggest thing I had learned. I now expect “snags,” but I don’t get discouraged, I just think about how to solve it. Bottom line…THANKS A TON for empowering me to live it forward! —Pat Moore

Follow Up Email From Eric: Hey Kent…everything is going extremely well. One of the first things that my broker asked me to do was to take the DISC personality profile.

Thanks for all that you’ve done to empower me to move in the right direction! Living it forward so much that it is unbelievable!
