Have you got all the pieces in place for a Balanced Life?
Chris Freeman is the Founder and Lead Coach of the Design a Decade Program.
Beren, with his wife Kristie, has been a client of Design a Decade for the better part of two decades. Knowing the pressures all too well that come with the weight of teenagers and children in the beautiful chaos, Beren and Kristie navigate their time around four boys from the ages of 18 down to 10.
Over the last eight years as a Design a Decade mentor, and now Managing Partner, with this ever-expanding knowledge and all he has learnt from his working history across many different industries, Beren has become involved in supporting others who may be going through and preparing for these stages of life.
Blake and his wife Esther joined Design a Decade the month they were married in 2018 and now Blake is a personal business mentor with a passion to help equip the entrepreneur.
Owning a few small businesses, Blake has learned the value of taking a holistic approach to life, with business just being a piece of that. Helping others setup up their lives, secure their future and enjoy life along the way is truly what gives Blake his energy.
John and Sharon have been in business and leadership in more than one sphere for many, many years. They have been part of Design a Decade since 2008 and joined our coaching team in 2019.
With a wealth of knowledge and experience, in business as well as life and family, they are wonderful coaches. John and Sharon have seen firsthand, in their own lives, how planning and then acting on those plans can help you become far more intentional about your future and the goals you would like to achieve. And while progress is being made, they are strong advocates for having fun along the way!
Shana has been part of Design a Decade, as a client and then a member of the Support Team, since 2011 and her main focus is all things editing. She is passionate about words and helping Chris bring his message of ‘setting up the future you desire’ to life in as accurate and authentic a way as possible. Shana is also involved in a number of other areas in Design a Decade, including social media content and as a general support for Beren.
Shana considers herself as part of the family and, along with her husband Danny and her two kids, she has reaped the benefit of her own decade under the coaching of Chris and his wisdom.
Co-founder of Design a Decade with her husband Chris, Heather is the heart and soul of all things ‘customer care’ for all Design a Decade clients. She also oversees our finance and administration; but her role is so much more than that as she supports and encourages Chris and the team towards the growth and enlargement of the program.
Heather is grandmother of her eight adored grandchildren and is entirely family-orientated, always there to bring strength and comfort to her loved ones Selfless and hardworking, she also loves devoting time to the daily lifestyle habits of ‘long shadows’ with Chris.
Not everyone is the same and sometimes there is more going on in your world! The Design a Decade Personal Coaching incorporates the same learning and support as the School but adds another level of support to your journey with direct access to a personal mentor and coach.
Your life has income, expenditure, human resources, capital acquisitions, property maintenance, investment strategy, conflict resolution, health and safety. To be successful, businesses must have principles and systems to contain the instinct and response of their staff. Life is the same – we need principles and systems to contain our impulsive instinct and responses. If you follow the principles to ‘design your next decade of life’, you will go a long way toward building your future on great fundamentals. As the increasing weight of life appears you will be well-equipped to handle it.
Examples of people already setting up life with the support of a personal mentor or coach include those who are building their family, building their career and building their wealth creation portfolio at the same time. Maybe you are single, a young couple or an established family, but trying to do multiple life-changing events at the same time is taking its toll. So are you:
Can you have a great lifestyle today and set up for the future at the same time? ABSOLUTELY!
