Figure Out Life’s Big Questions


Launch your Digital Nomad Life


You know me as Carly the semi-pro athlete and semi-nomadic adventurer. And you know I have followed a winding and obscure path to get here. (If you didn’t know that you can read my story here.) And now I’m going to let you in on a secret, because if you’ve read this far, you deserve the full truth.

In the past four years, my life has been totally terrifying. I have felt so lonely, uncertain, and lost. I have suffered anxiety attacks and periods of absolute despair.

I have also felt the biggest sense of freedom. Of joy, love and hope for the future. I know I have my finger on the pulse of something good. Something right. I am living how I was meant to and being who I am supposed to be.

You’re ready for that too? Awesome.

Congratulations. Seriously. If you are here, you are asking the Big Questions.


What is lifestyle design coaching?

Lifestyle design coaching is for individuals like you who are actively engaged with life, and ready to create what you really want. If you are not satisfied with settling, and the easiest and most obvious path isn’t the one for you, lifestyle design is for you! It’s time to create something amazing, something that will allow you to fully LIVE.

Today you step off the lighted path. It takes real courage to face the uncertainty that is ahead of you. I’m here to help with that.

Lifestyle design coaching will help you find and break down the things that scare you most. It will help you know yourself, and create the best version of your life. Together we will reach into the darkest corners of your brain and discover your true passions, your direction, your purpose. I will help you uncover the lies you tell yourself about why you cannot have what you desire. I will help you set yourself free, blast through your hidden inner barriers, and learn to thrive.

Working online and becoming nomadic has been part of my journey. If you want to do the same, I can walk you through the steps to creating online income for yourself and becoming location-independent or location-flexible. 

It’s a big and messy world here in the online-income industry, and I can guide you. You can do it, even if you don’t even know what “domain name” means. Even if you don’t have a smartphone. That was me two years ago. Yes, actually. You can’t start much more basic than I did.


If you would like to work with me, or simply have some questions you would like me to address in upcoming blog posts, drop me a line.

This is not an online course. This is not a DIY manual. This is personal, one-on-one coaching.

And you can afford it. (Because I know that’s going to be your first excuse.)

EVERYONE gets a free first session to get to know me and allow me to begin to understand you and your life. Look, I get it, when you’re in the middle of totally questioning your life and identity you might not have the funds to spare. But I can tell you from personal experience, knowing that you are on the right track is worth any amount of money.

Payment plans are as flexible as the coaching I offer. From sliding scales to extended payment plans, even to free services, we will find something that works for you.

Contact me below to get started. Simply tell me a little about yourself and why you are interested in working with me, and I will get back to you!


Want to see Lifestyle Design in action? Consider this excerpt from a recent conversation I had with Chelsea*, 24

*Not her real name


Chelsea: I feel like I can’t move forward until I separate my athletic goals from my life goals.

Me: Give me an example of an athletic goal

Chelsea: Well, I really just like the feeling of pushing my body. I want to practice a sport with the goal of seeing how good I can become.

Me: How is that different from a life goal?

Chelsea: It doesn’t make me money. It doesn’t prove I’m doing something valuable with my life.

Me: But it is part of your lifestyle just the same.

Chelsea: Yeah, but…like, it doesn’t lead me to having an independent life.

Me: So what would you consider to be a life goal?

Chelsea: To have a job and be financially independent, and, be able to take care of myself and know what I want.

Me: And you see your athletic goals as not contributing to your life goals?

Chelsea: Yeah. Like they don’t work together.

Me: Then do you really need to separate the two? Or are they already separate?

Chelsea: Yeah, I don’t see how I can have them both.

Me: Then you don’t need to separate your life goals and athletic goals, you need to UNITE them. You see them as separate entities, impossible to have at the same time. This is the belief that is limiting you. As soon as you begin seeing the two as parts of a greater whole, you can start building a life around them.

Chelsea: But how?

Me: First, it’s about how you frame it to yourself. Re-name “Life Goals” to represent what those goals truly are. The goals you have named are mainly financial goals. So rename them thus, and then tell yourself that Financial Goals and Athletic Goals are pieces of a whole life. Maybe we can call that “Chelsea’s Highest Life.”

Chelsea: So now they can work together to build a full life.

Me: Right. You have redefined “Life Goals” to better represent what you truly mean, Financial Goals. And you have re-framed the question. Now the question is not how to separate financial goals and athletic goals, but how to make them work together.

Chelsea: But how do I? They don’t work together!

Me: Why do they not seem to work together? How do they work against each other?

Chelsea: I’m not a good enough athlete to make money doing it!

Me: You’re not a good enough chef to make money doing that either. But you still cook, every day, and enjoy it. Just because you don’t make money at something doesn’t mean there is no way to do it, or no value in doing it. That is an invisible script you tell yourself. That’s an excuse you make out of fear. It’s easier to say, “I can’t do this sport because I’m not a pro and I have no money,” than it is to face the fact that you don’t know how to do something. It’s always easier to say “I can’t” than “I don’t know how.”


“I don’t know how” leaves open the possibility that it can be done, but that we may not do it. “I can’t” lets us off the hook. “I can’t” may be easier to accept.

But it’s not the way to living a full life. And you are going to have better than that.

Chelsea and I are working together to help her understand what she really wants at this phase in life, and the lies she is telling herself without even realizing it about why she can’t have what she wants. We are completely overhauling the way she thinks about her goals and the types of questions that she asks.

You and I can do the same.
