After testing, experimenting and staying the course through wave after wave of 2020 curve-balls...
After scouring the globe to find the most brilliant minds, innovative entrepreneurs and intuitive business leaders who’ve enjoyed greater results than ever since last year…
After interviewing the “winners” of the coaching industry and reverse-engineering the hidden, counter-intuitive secrets to their massive success...
We’ve got the answers
And we're going to share everything we've learned with YOU in an upcoming, brand-new, 3-day event that's exclusive to Brave Thinking Institute Certified and Provisionally Certified Coaches:
June 11-13, 2021
What Does It Really Take To Become An Abundant,
Influential Life-Coach In Today’s “New Normal”?
2020 dealt a fatal blow to nearly 100,000 businesses (in the U.S. alone) in 2020. Over 20 million Americans lost their jobs.
Yet the coaching industry was barely impacted!
In 2020 alone, the coaching industry blew past $11 billion in total market size.
And while thousands of coaches around the world reported Covid to have a “significantly negative” impact on their business – citing plummeting numbers in their income and total clients served (with others having to shut down their business entirely)...
Thousands of others reported the exact opposite.
The top tier of coaches on the planet (many of whom reside right here at the Brave Thinking Institute) have seen their businesses skyrocket in the last year.
More clients on their calendar ~ Better results with their coaching ~ More abundance in their business ~ Less stress about finances ~ More positive impact on the world ~ More joy, ease & freedom in their lives..
What is their secret? How are the “top-tier” coaches creating such dramatic success (when others are flailing & ready to give up)?
We wondered the same thing.
And after a year of testing what works in today’s new “normal”, and combining these fresh insights with our decades of hard-earned lessons...
We’re ready to unveil our findings in a brand-new Virtual Event unlike anything you’ve seen before...
In Coach-A-Palooza, we’re bringing together the best parts of a high-level training, networking event, music festival, professional conference and award ceremony – all wrapped up into one weekend experience that will leave you feeling:
Reset ~ Energized ~ Inspired ~ Connected ~ Empowered
...and most of all, equipped with the specific tools and step-by-step strategies to take your coaching business to all new levels of success in 2021 and the rest of the decade!
Who’s Invited to Coach-A-Palooza?
Once again, this event is reserved exclusively for Brave Thinking Institute certified and provisionally certified coaches!

Legendary Swimmer, Author & Motivational Speaker
Presentation Title: Find a Way: The Courage To Dream
25 million people worldwide rooted for Diana Nyad as she approached the Florida shore, at long last achieving her 35-year-old dream of becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida. Diana is not one to quit. On her fifth attempt, speaking the words “Never Ever Give Up” to the wildly cheering crowd on a Key West beach on September 2, 2013, Diana may have been dazed and physically spent, but she showed the world what persistence and bold spirit can manifest. Diana stroked the amazing 110.86 miles in 52 hours, 54 minutes, 18 seconds. A worldwide response of inspiration came flooding toward Diana, from personal messages from President Obama and Hillary Clinton to literally millions of people who felt their own lives lifted with Diana’s “Find a Way” philosophy. Daring to reach for the stars, this swim beginning to seem impossible (after her four attempts over 35 years and other strong swimmers trying and failing since 1950), Diana has motivated the world at large to live fearlessly, to chase one’s dreams with unwavering commitment. The second statement the victorious 64-year-old made on that Key West beach? “You’re never too old to chase your dreams.” And her third statement on that historic day: “It looks a solitary sport, but it’s a TEAM.” Courage, bold vision, and the ability to articulate her philosophies have propelled Diana through an inspiring life. A prominent sports journalist, filing for National Public Radio, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, The New York Times and others, Diana has carved her place as one of our compelling storytellers and sought-after public speakers. In September, 2019, Diana’s stage show “The Swimmer” played to sold-out audiences at the storied Minetta Lane Theater in New York City. And the play is now being courted at other off-Broadway theaters for 2021. Diana’s memoir, Find a Way, has earned worldwide praise. She has written three other books and speaks French and Spanish fluently. Diana and her Cuba Swim Head Handler Bonnie Stoll have launched an initiative called EverWalk, to lead us walking along the epic outdoor corridors of America. Diana and Bonnie intend to turn us into a nation of millions of walkers. And Diana is yet again dreaming big, leading a million swimmers and walkers (Swimmers Commit, EverWalkers Commit) June 2020 from Miami to Washington, DC, in a push for American companies and individuals to reduce single use plastics in our businesses and our homes
Singer, Songwriter, Grammy Award Winner
Presentation Title: The Inspiration Behind the Music: An Evening with Kenny Loggins
Kenny Loggins has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide and has won two Grammy® Awards. His songs have left his musical imprint on “the soundtrack of our lives.” Over the last four decades, his chart-topping songs have included “This Is It,” “I’m Alright,” “Footloose," “Danger Zone,” and so many more. In addition to his string of successful recordings, both solo and as a member of the famed duo Loggins & Messina, Kenny became the first major rock star to dedicate himself to recording music for children and families. His album Return to Pooh Corner remains the best-selling children’s album of the last 20 years. In 2016, he released his latest children’s project, the book Footloose (Moondance Press, an imprint of Quarto Publishing Group USA, October 17, 2016), inspired by his 1985 Oscar® nominated and Grammy® Award-winning “Song of the Year.” His song “Conviction of the Heart” was hailed as the "unofficial anthem of the environmental movement" by Al Gore, when Loggins performed it on Earth Day in 1995 at The National Mall in Washington, D.C. In 2016, he was a recipient of the ASCAP Harry Chapin Humanitarian Award at the annual Chapin Awards hosted by WhyHunger. Later that year, The Guild of Music Supervisors honored the legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist with the organization’s first-ever Icon Award for his outstanding achievements in film, television, and soundtracks. His gift for crafting deeply emotional music is unparalleled, and it's been a part of his life as long as he can remember. His generous support of countless local organizations has made a lasting impact on the causes that are close to his heart. Through his work with Toys for Tots in Santa Barbara, CA, Kenny helped launch Unity Shoppe in 1988. An expansion of the Council of Christmas Cheer which previously only existed during the holiday season, Unity Shoppe expanded the program to exist year-round so individuals could volunteer their services to help low-income families, children, the elderly, sick, and disabled in Santa Barbara County. Kenny regularly lends his musical talent and generous heart to support youth-based programs like Make a Wish, Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation, and Little Kids Rock. Kenny was honored with a Humanitarian of the Year Award from Little Kids Rock for his extensive commitment to children’s causes in 2016. In 2018, he helped re-open the original Notes for Notes (N4N) Studios at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara and United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara County, giving over 600 kids each year access to a world of musical expression where they can record music, learn to play an instrument, and form a band with their friends for free. In February 2021, Kenny will released “The Great Adventure”, a brand-new single that is set to be used as the theme song for San Diego Zoo Kids television network. The closed-circuit television adventure channel features programs produced primarily for medical facilities that serve pediatric patients and their families. The channel debuted at Rady Children’s Hospital in 2013 and offers family friendly, animal-oriented stories that are both entertaining and educational, supporting Kenny’s core belief that “every child should experience the healing power of music.” For more information, please visit https://www.kennyloggins.com
Hall of Fame Wide Receiver & Three-Time Super Bowl Champion
Presentation Title: Becoming Legendary: Best Practices for Becoming The Greatest Of All Time
Hall of Fame wide receiver and three-time Super Bowl champion Jerry Rice is widely regarded as the best wide receiver to ever play in the National Football League, and arguably the greatest player of all time. During his 15-year career with the San Francisco 49ers, Rice won three Super Bowls (Super Bowl XXIII (’88), Super Bowl XXIV (’89) and SB XXIX (’94)) and one Super Bowl MVP. He enjoyed three seasons with the Oakland Raiders, including a Super Bowl appearance and one season with the Seattle Seahawks before retiring in 2005. Rice was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in January 2010, his first year of eligibility. Rice’s meticulous preparation and work ethic during his 20-year NFL career became legendary. He holds 36 NFL records – a record in itself. Has scored the most touchdowns in NFL history (208) and holds virtually every significant career receiving record, including receptions (1,549), yards receiving (22,895), all-purpose yards (23,546), touchdown receptions (197) and consecutive games with at least one catch (274). After his retirement, Rice’s celebrity has grown beyond the football field. He finished second in the second season of the ABC hit-reality show Dancing with the Stars and has appeared on NBC’s Deal or No Deal and Law and Order SVU, FOX’s Don’t Forget the Lyrics, CBS’s The Class, CW’s The Game and One Tree Hill, Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes, ABC’s American Inventor and The Biggest Loser. Rice took his love of golf on the Big Break’s 20th season, leading his team to victory against other NFL Legends on Big Break NFL Puerto Rico. He was a football analyst for ESPN and also co-hosted “Sports Sundays” with Raj Mathai on the San Jose NBC local affiliate. This success off the field and renowned work ethic has appealed numerous corporations to Rice, who is working as a brand ambassador/spokesperson for NIKE, Fanatics and Tri Star to name a few. Rice was recently named the San Francisco 49ers Foundation Honorary Chairman to aid in the foundation’s mission to educate and empower Bay Area youth. Born in Crawford, Mississippi, Rice did not start playing football until he was a sophomore in high school. Despite becoming an All-State player, Rice was not recruited by many major college football programs and attended Mississippi Valley State University, a Division I-AA school. As a senior, he broke NCAA records for receptions, yards and touchdowns and acquired the nickname “World” because there wasn’t a ball in the world he couldn’t catch. MVSU later renamed its football stadium Rice-Totten Stadium in honor of Rice and quarterback Willie Totten. He was elected into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006. In 1985, Rice caught the eye of future 49ers Hall of Fame head coach Bill Walsh who drafted him with the 16th overall pick in the 1985 draft. In only his second season, Rice set the NFL record for touchdown receptions with 22 – a feat even more significant because the season was shortened to 12 games because of the players’ strike. By the late 1980s, Rice had become one of the biggest receiving threats in the NFL, teaming with Hall of Fame quarterbacks Joe Montana and Steve Young to win three championships. After leaving the 49ers, Rice continued to excel, having his 13th and 14th 1,000-yard receiving seasons and scoring his 200th TD in 2002 with Oakland. During his career, Rice was selected to the Pro Bowl a record 13 times, won the NFL Most Valuable Player Award in 1987 and was Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl XXIII. In 1999, he was ranked No. 2 in The Sporting News’ list of 100 Greatest Football Players – the highest-ranked active player and receiver – and in 2010, was voted the No. 1 player in the NFL Network's The Top 100: NFL's Greatest Players. Rice resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and has four children.
