Who Else Wants More Focus, Freedom and Fulfillment in Your Life and Work?

Have you ever said...

  • "I'm tired of feeling stuck - in my family life, finances, and career"
  • "I have big goals and dreams, but I just don't know how to make them a reality"
  • "I'm dying to do work I'm passionate about, but I just don't think it's possible"
  • "I want to be more productive, but I just lack the self-discipline to make things happen in my life"
  • "I want to start my own side hustle or business, but I'm just not sure which one is right for me"
  • "I'd love to feel more fulfilled in my life and work, if only I knew how"

I know exactly what it's like to feel stuck - in life, at work, and with money.

Hi, I'm Rich Avery,

I've been there at times, in my own life, through 20 years of pastoral ministry, 26 years of marriage (and counting) to my beautiful wife, and raising 5 awesome kids...

Struggling to reconcile my call to pastoral ministry with all the entrepreneurial ideas I had. Did I need to choose one over the other?

Wanting to create more for my life and family than just living paycheck to paycheck. But then giving up by giving into the fear.

Taking solid steps forward toward goals and new endeavors that I thought were right for me. Then second-guessing myself.

Making excuses to myself and my family for being overworked and overwhelmed. Instead of realizing that it was a choice that was ultimately mine to make.

Dreaming big. But playing small.

Gratefully, I'm living proof that it doesn't have to be this way. And that it's never too late to become the person you knew you could become. 

One day, out of frustration...or was it desperation? I made a decision I've never regretted:

Do whatever it takes to get unstuck, gain clarity on what's most important to me, and fully live out my God-given dreams and destiny.

Since then I've invested thousands of dollars on courses, seminars, and personal coaching, plus hundreds of hours studying and testing out personal growth strategy after strategy.

Through these experiences,

I've discovered a proven pathway

that everyone can follow to...

  • Overcome the limiting beliefs that are holding them back
  • Gain clarity about the values that are most important to them
  • Push through the fears and self-doubt to pursue the life of their dreams
  • And launch into the work they feel most called to do in this world

This pathway has taken me from...

  • Couch potato...to running two marathons in 14 days
  • Feeling stuck in life...to discovering and stepping into my God-given destiny
  • Letting life happen to me...to making life happen for me
  • Being a pastor with local reach...to impacting the lives of thousands around the world
  • Financial lid...to unlimited potential

I don't say these things to impress you.

But to impress upon you...

That if this real-life transformation can happen for a normal, every day guy like me...

I firmly believe it can happen for you too!

That's why I've dedicated my life to sharing what I've learned and experienced.

To help other people get unstuck and take their lives to the next level.

Let's Consider the Cost for a Moment

Please think long and hard about the cost before saying YES to one of my Next Level Coaching packages.


How much is ineffectiveness costing you right now? And what's it costing your team or organization? Your family?

What about frustration? Overwhelm?

What are they costing you financially? Emotionally? Mentally? Physically? Spiritually? Relationally?

If you clearly saw a path leading to a thriving family, life, and business, 30 days or 90 days from now, how much would that be worth to you?

And how long would it take you to say YES and begin to enjoy those rewards today?


Imagine What Your Life Will Be Like When You...

  • Overcome the limiting beliefs that have been holding you back
  • Get crystal clear about where you want to go - and why
  • Push through the fears and self-doubt to pursue your worthy goals of your dreams
  • Launch into the work you feel most called to do in this world
  • Enjoy more freedom and fulfillment in every area of your life

It's Decision Time!

So, now you have a choice to make.

Keep on doing what you’ve been doing. Or worse, do nothing at all. You know where that will lead. Is that really where you want to go?  

Or take a new action, and get a new result.

You can continue living a life that doesn't work and that leaves you unfulfilled, struggling to make it, and hoping somehow your kids will have it better than you.

Or you can take one step today toward that life of fulfillment you've always wanted, and the satisfaction of knowing your life truly makes a difference.
