Travis's Coaching Mindset: "I believe that coaching is all about unlocking potential and eliminating self-imposed barriers. The true transformation with coaching comes from helping clients to learn about themselves and the holistic process of learning, being, and doing instead of simply showing a solution or fixing a problem. When done right, coaching can be the difference in finding true passion and satisfaction in all areas of life."
