2005 President of the International Coach Federation

5 Start-up/ 2 IPO Entrepreneur with Expertise in Transitions, Business Development, Emotional Intelligence, Leadership, Marketing, Positive Psychology (Happiness), Presence, Mindfulness, and Self-Actualization.

Hello and welcome. My name is Steve Mitten. I'm a very experienced Master Certified Coach and I've had the pleasure of helping well over a thousand individuals, entrepreneurs, professionals, executives, business owners, seekers, coaches and leaders get clear, learn what they need to learn, grow, stay on track, get results and enjoy far more meaningful, sustainable, success and happiness in their lives, careers and businesses.

How about you? What brings you to exploring the possibility of working with a coach? Do you have some important changes you would like to make? Maybe you find yourself:

  • at a crossroad or waking up to the realization that a deeper and more meaningful success may be possible in your life, career or business?
  • struggling with stress and time management or just longing for greater effectiveness, clarity, confidence, peace, presence, balance or sense of purpose?
  • wanting to maximize your potential, grow your business, market more effectively, find your niche, leverage your strengths and manage your weaknesses, delegate or communicate better, have more satisfying relationships or become a far more effective leader?
  • simply not experiencing the results or happiness you want and looking for the best in professional support to get clear, get a plan, move past your doubts and into action to make a genuine, sustainable and holistic breakthrough?

If any of these ring true for you, just know you are not alone. We all have important changes that we struggle to achieve by ourselves. (Psychologists call these "adaptive changes" because they require us to grow, adapt, or otherwise move past our current mindset, habits or beliefs.) Coaching is excellent at supporting you through these sorts of changes, which are very difficult to make on your own.

Life and Business Coaching is very flexible and easily customized to meet your needs. We work together to help you get clear on what you most want, learn what you need to learn, and create a plan that aligns with your values and builds on your strengths. It's about supporting you to make all the changes needed to achieve the outcomes you desire.

As a professional service coaching consistently delivers a high return on investment (over 500%) and can be a powerful partner in helping you achieve far greater levels of success, happiness and fulfillment. (ICF studies have shown a 98.5% client satisfaction rate.)

In my coaching practice, I provide a personal guarantee that you will get value out of every single session. If you are serious about making some important changes, I would love to chat with you and give you a feel for what might be possible by working together.

How Do I Know If It's For Me?

The individuals, entrepreneurs and leaders who come to coaching just have a sense that more success, clarity, meaning, and balance is possible in their lives. They have a hunger for living a fuller life that feels like the one they were meant to live. Properly supported they accomplish some amazing things through life and business coaching. And they routinely say that working together was one of the best decisions they ever made. Check out some of our Success Stories to get a better feel for the many ways clients benefit from coaching.


Get Clear. Get a Plan.
And Get The Support You Need To Make It A Reality

Professional life and business coaches know that any plan without action and commitment remains a dream. (That's why so many New Year's Resolutions end in failure.) Intention alone does not change behavior and rarely translates into sustainable change. However when you develop a vision for your life and career that is in direct alignment with who you are, and what you most want to do in this life, you become inspired. And inspiration, coupled with the right support, feedback and accountability, changes everything.

I consider it an honor and my calling to work with the individuals, independents, professionals, business owners, leaders, executives, organizations and new coaches who seek me out. They want to make dramatic progress in their personal and professional growth - so they can fully experience even higher levels of success, balance and fulfillment and make a bigger difference in their worlds.

* MCC - Is the highest credential awarded by the ICF, top 1% of all coaches.

50 Shades Of Ego, And How It Impacts Your Marketing (And Life)


In common usage the word ego has many definitions. Here I am simply talking about the behaviors, and the artificial sense of self, that results when our attention is filtered through our habitual thoughts, memories and conditioning and the resulting sense of lack is acted on. When this occurs we are very often anxious, usually seeking something, perhaps security, acceptance, happiness or ways to control the unpredictable world. This ego part of us is always judging, comparing and generally resisting whatever is happening, and always wanting something else to be happening instead. Sound familiar? We all have an ego. It’s part of being human.  

Further, since we all have different temperaments and life experiences, there are many, many shades of ego. For sake of this article let’s look at two common ways ego shows up in our marketing (and lives)...... Read more…
