You are doing okay up until a certain point, but then: life starts to feel out of whack, there is no time to do what you need to do, let alone what you WANT to do; family, social activities, work, they all start to encroach upon you; everything needs to be juggled, relationships seem to get tighter and tighter, work becomes even MORE demanding, you start to cross out weekends to at least have two days to yourself self, etc etc....It is just all too much.
Technology doesn't make it easier: e-mails, (mobile) phones, beepers, pagers, sms, video-messaging or -conferencing, voicemails, websites, magazines, newspapers...Information overload.

Marc is a certified life/business coach and master NLP Practitioner on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. He specialises in coaching people at critical junctions in their careers and/or lives, in order for them to find out what has been hindering them all along in achieving what they want, and to then make the conscious choice to take their lives and/or careers to the next level. Having been a lawyer for nearly 6 years in his “previous life”, before immigrating to Australia from The Netherlands, Marc knows exactly how daunting taking the first step in a new direction can be. On the other hand, he also knows how fulfilling taking that step is, and has the knack of imparting his knowledge and wisdom in a stunningly simple and highly effective way.
