10 Things Gay Men Need To Let Go Of To Keep Their Sanity!

I turned 50 this year. In gay years that’s like turning 70. To some, I’m now a daddy, even though I’ve been a daddy for over 18 years. To others I’m a poppa bear. Whatever! I may be a big, tall, stocky, gay man, but the last time I looked, I wasn’t covered in fur, except in all the ...

Success Stories

What A Girl Wants!

“Life changing” is not a term I use lightly. However, I can honestly say that my coaching experience with Life Coach Rick Clemons has definitely been “life changing” in the most positive way. I am so grateful that he entered my life when he did. For on the surface, I felt my life was going smoothly: good job, great family, and a very happy life since my divorce a year earlier. But in reality, I was struggling with relationship issues that needed addressing and I had been trying to avoid.

With his insightful guidance and self-discovery process, Rick Clemons didn’t tell me what I needed to do but gave me the tools to help me understand what I really wanted. Rick’s easy-to-speak with style and thought-provoking questions also made the process not only painless but empowering.
