I have been working with Karl for 7 years. When I started with him I was working in the business 70 hours a week. Karl taught me how to work on the business and promote myself to CEO one step at a time. I went from owning a Job to owning a Business. Now I have time to spend with my family and time for myself. I don’t believe I would have accomplished this without Karl’s support.

Over the years, I’ve taken a few career assessment tests for either team building or on an individual level but nothing comes close to what you provide. I admit I was a bit hesitant but after the first session in speaking with you about the results it became transparent on what are my special abilities and brought clarity on my career path. Due to the deep recession and downward spiral in the job market, I was completely depressed on my own future outlook; but after going through your coaching I feel more optimistic as it points out all the positive traits I can offer in recreating a new start for myself and my family. I’m truly blessed that you provide this opportunity to feel better and get my life back on track…
Derek S. (Owner Sound and Music Blending Business)
I was hesitant to talk to a coach at first because my business was growing and I was plenty busy. But I also found myself a little in fear to make the bigger decisions that go along with the craziness of growth. I look forward to each phone meeting with Coach Karl because now I get a whole lot more done than I ever had. I’m always pleasantly surprised how much work he puts into our relationship – he has new ideas each and every time I talk to him. Coach Karl’s vast experience, incredible knowledge and great energy are all such great assets that I can draw from and achieve more every day.
Bill S. (Owner Contracting Business)
“I call Coach Karl the “Dr. Phil McGraw of great Business Advice”. I have benefited a great deal from Karl these past three years, and wish I had access to this type of support when I started our contracting business in 1972. Throughout these years I learned a lot by trial and error. I attended a number of workshops and classes since those early beginnings, but Karl’s condensed advice on specific issues are a great resource and a wonderful library to fall back on. Indeed, I have forwarded a number of his articles to friends and associates all over the world. People I knew were looking for answers to specific problems and questions. People who are working in many different professions, and young people just entering and exiting University. In terms of value I think that some of Karl’s advice is absolutely priceless. In the past, I paid dearly in terms of dollars and missed opportunities because I did not know better. If I had access to Karl’s advice back then we could have saved ourselves money and sometimes the sad experience of business hardship. If you need excellent advise from someone you can trust; hiring Coach Karl is an absolute must!”
Charlie T. (Owner, Large Wood Flooring Enterprise)
“Tim, here is my business coach’s email address and web site. I have copied Karl so he knows you may be contacting him. You will be very surprised at the results. As you know I am up 78% in January, February 94% and non-updated numbers in March are over 108%. We have 3 showrooms and we have a plan for 97 more in place. Last year I had no showrooms and no confidence to keep going. I was a prisoner of my business and I was hating it. He has given me the support I need to have a new vision for my business and given me the encouragement to start a step by step process toward making my business a turn key operation, so that I could have more Life. I’m sure if you get one or two ideas a month from Karl along with his never-ending support of your life and business career, it will be money well spent. What a return on investment I have had. He also does group meetings with your staff as well. God bless and keep growing!”

Christi S. (Manager, Los Angeles Times)
“Dear Karl, I am so grateful that my life path crossed with you. The past two years I have been very “stuck” in terms of direction and relationships. In just this short time working with you, I find I have more energy, renewed spirit and desire to grow and live each day fully. This is just the beginning and I appreciate your devoted time and patience in getting me started and helping me through these past couple of months.
Andreas S. (Owner and CEO of a Medical Device Company)
“Before I met Karl my life was unbearably stressful. High financial liabilities, declining sales in my company and a divorce. With Karl’s guidance and his constant support I was able to turn around my company, resolve my relationship challenges and balance my financial situation. Using various assessments we were able to identify key issues and implement changes, which are leading to personal and financial success. Every time I talk to Karl his creativity, motivation, encouraging support and solid knowledge in various areas support me to stay focused, increase my efficiency and improve my productivity substantially. Thanks Karl for your great effort and believing in me!”
Lisa G. (Owners of Import-Export Company)
“We were at a crossroads. My husband wanted to move on from our business and I wanted to expand it. The Assessments for our Natural and Adaptive styles you gave us to take, put to paper many of the things that Dick and I knew about ourselves and did not know how it related to our life and business. We were quickly able to see where we meshed and were we clashed and learning that is an informational environment instantly helped us work together and figure out where we needed help without judgment. As with so many couples, Dick and I had plans, dreams and ideas of how to move our life and business forward. Deadlines came and went, still no closer to our dreams. I was amazed at how quickly you and I got to the nitty gritty and got me on course. Dick saw changes in my perceptions, and a few months later started working with you as well. Life had been going by too fast. I had dreams and those dreams were not coming true. You have given us a guideline for working on things we talked about. It is about getting those dreams incorporated into a plan, working and the plan and seeing the results. And I cannot stress enough how the regular contact with you keeps us in focus. You’d never get that from just reading a book. Funny thing is that I do not even think of them as dreams anymore they are just realities that have not taken place yet. I have told many of my clients and friends about you. I grew up in a family business and see how important this would be to every husband and wife working together. Coaching is a way to live what you dream. It is great to have a marriage working together to better both the individual lives and the couples life together. Keep up the good work. And most of all thank you!”

“Karl I always come away from talking to you with lots of ideas and better piece of mind.”
Ken R. (Financial Advisor)
“I wanted to take a few moments to tell you about how important Karl has been in helping me to achieve a higher quality of life. He has helped me enjoy my business again, achieve peak physical conditioning, and most important he has helped me to create a vision of the person I ultimately want, and will become. As a result of our relationship, I am enjoying greater confidence in my business and personal life. Karl has a passion for helping people to achieve their highest level of success. Thank you Karl for believing in me and coaching me to the top!”
Victoria C. (Mortgage Broker)
“Karl, thank you again for being so generous with your energy, time and wisdom. I really appreciate it. May you be blessed beyond measure. You are truly a God send!”

“Karl is a totally dedicated and extremely perceptive, intelligent coach, who can make a difference for you as you seek to clarify and enhance the decisions you make for your life and your career.”
Alejandra C. (Architect)
“I have been and am still working with Karl for almost two years and despite my extensive and frequent travels and my move this year to Bali, Indonesia I have only missed two of my weekly telephonic sessions. I am beginning with this simple introduction, because I believe it illustrates more than anything else I can say, how much Karl’s coaching has become an integral part of my creative life.
I started my sessions with Karl at a time when I was working on a ambitious speculative remodel and I had limited funds. I was half way into the project when I froze and realized I needed some support if I was going to remain true to the vision I had outlined for myself as well as succeed in my plan with my emotional well being intact.
A friend recommended I talk to Coach Karl. She told me that this very unique, perceptive and effective individual was an American raised in Switzerland who had been an active, passionate and successful member of the corporate world, until he realized that it was killing him (figuratively and close literally) and had courageously decided to choose a life that was more in line with his calling: coaching. As part of his transition, he, his wife and their three teenage children had toured the United States for almost a year in an RV.
I remember thinking ” I need another expense in my life like I need a hole in my head,” but she had spoken so highly of Karl, I myself had been witness to the palpable changes in her life since she had begun to work with him, and I was, frankly impressed by his story, so I decided to call him and give coaching and Coach Karl a try… for one month, I thought.
The very first conversation I had with Karl it was clear to me that this dialogue was different from any I’d had in the past and though I didn’t know where it is going, I was sure it was going somewhere where I hadn’t yet been. Sure enough, the tons of initial hard work of evaluations and the clean sweep program were enormously useful and rewarding. These were 100% practical steps, seemingly overwhelming at first and then almost immediate results of a much more subtle and profound nature. From there, the work I have been able to do and the places I have been I couldn’t have even imagined at the time. To name a few, I “clean swept” from closets to health and from my professional practice to my intimate relationships. I completed the remodel and profited more than I imagined, I simplified my life on so many levels, that I was able to change careers and fulfill a life long dream of living abroad. And, none of those spectacular results compare to how satisfied and fulfilled I feel with the life I’m creating on a daily basis. I couldn’t have done any of this without Karl’s Coaching.
I’m sure there are thousands of effective coaches in the United States, but Coach Karl brings an absolutely one of a kind winning mix to his brand of coaching. He is a feet firmly planted on the ground visionary and a truly original thinker. He listens and responds creatively. He moves from the macro to the micro from financial to spiritual with ease. Karl’s is not formula coaching but it is rigorous and inspiring! ”
Farhana R.D. (Business Trainer, Calgary, Alberta, Canada)
“When I first signed up for coaching sessions with Coach Karl, I presumed that I would be getting a lot of the questions that coaches typically ask in order for me to find my own answers. What I found was a simple dance of direct questions, introspective questions and a wealth of business ‘know how’ for me to not only unveil what I was about, but also tangible methods for me to reach my highest potential. Coach Karl generously gives of his knowledge and expertise and is truly committed to my success. While the launching of my training company was an idea when I first talked with Coach Karl, his expert guidance has helped me take my dream to fruition. He helped me prepare my first big proposal and showed me a way in which I could earn far more money doing exactly what I was doing. His understanding of business, marketing and the corporate world has definitely aided me in positioning me and my company for staggering growth. Because he is so committed to his family and true to is ideal of balance, he encourages me to keep the things that are most important in check. It is a sort of holistic coaching ensuring an overall approach to success. I have interviewed dozens of coaches and found that Coach Karl’s blend of insightful questioning and mentorship was able to take me much further than I could have dreamed at this early point in my business. I am thankful for the amount of time and money that he has saved me. Anyone looking to exponentially grow their business and doesn’t want to waste time and money doing it must work with Coach Karl. It is simply the finest investment that you can make.”
Carl M. (Entrepreneur)
My working relationship with Karl was wonderful. I went through some really tough times and it was because he had me recognize and accept change. When we started I was in a corporate environment that was not physically, mentally or emotionally healthy for me even though my income was a 6 figure income. Now I no longer work for a corporation but I have experienced what I know that I don’t want as well as what I do want and early on he gave me some indications as to what would really make me happy. While I am trying not only to follow my dreams I most importantly am following my efforts. I can truly say it was with, as I call him “Koach K’s” help.
