Marshall's Thoughts & Reflection...
" I am passionate about working with individuals looking to find more meaning from their life. Whether business or personal, it’s all personal, and professional coaching offers a safe, trusted environment where people can ask tough questions, explore options and seek positive change. I strive to help a full spectrum of clients understand how to see life’s circumstances in the present and help them move beyond the obstacles holding them back.
I credit my very nurturing single mom for my higher sense of emotional awareness, an awareness that helped me immediately connect to my wife Jamie. After arranging a date through OK Cupid, we visited Atlanta’s Waikiki Barbecue for our first date. We sat on the patio and talked for hours. So long, the owner of the restaurant offered us another drink at closing, then told us to keep the glasses since the staff was going home for the night. Our conversation continued late into the night. We married a bit later and now have an eight-year-old son named Alexander. My hobbies include gaming, martial arts, motorcycles, reading, Zen, and meditation. My family and I currently live in Atlanta Georgia."

John's Thoughts & Reflection
“I enjoyed a long and successful career in health care management, a career path that I had selected in college and cultivated for many years. A significant portion of my career responsibilities involved human resource management, with an emphasis on employee training and development. I now refer to this period of time as my previous life.
About 15 years into my career, I started to experience a shift. The projects and responsibilities that I was once quite passionate about no longer gave me a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. Was I experiencing job burnout or a mid-life crisis?
I began to question my motivation and credibility, as I struggled to come to terms with escalating self doubt and negative internal dialogue. I was preoccupied with a recurring question – Why was I feeling this way? The answer to that question eluded me for quite some time, but the answer was quite simple. Nothing was truly wrong about what I was feeling and experiencing – I was simply undergoing a very natural change in my interests and career values. And it was time to determine what I needed to do – to recreate myself and prepare for a new phase of life.
In becoming a professional coach, I was able to use my background and experience as a foundation to successfully embrace and navigate the path of positive change. I’m very proud to offer my clients solid professional credentials, strong life and work experience, as well as a real world perspective on career and life transitions. I coach my clients using a strengths-based approach blended with elements of positive psychology, solution focused change, and intuitive career design.” --John Long
