Achieve your most important goals

High performing men and women are often busy and overwhelmed. I will assist you in decluttering your agenda and identifying and pursuing your most significant goals – one goal at a time! I will break it down into actionable steps that can be evaluated and adjusted until you successfully achieve what you desire.

Boost your confidence in leadership and life

The dark side of ambition is anxiety. Often, the more we level up in business and life, the more our stress levels increase. I will help you experience more peace and build consistent confidence by combining encouragement, spiritual guidance, and practical, scientifically proven methods and tools.



Reconnect with what truly matters to you

It doesn’t matter how much you win, if you lose what matters most in the process. I will assist you in refocusing on the things that hold the most value for you. I’ll remind you that life isn't just about the money you earn or the accolades you receive, but about love, family, friendship, and contributing to making the world a better place.

The Vaughn Kohler Podcast

My life purpose is "to embrace and explore my creativity and help others create the life God meant them to live." I'm a former pastor who was called by God into the world of entrepreneurship and personal development.
In my podcast, I tell stories, deliver messages,
and engage in lively conversations with my friends and heroes.

Whether I'm unpacking and applying a story from the Gospels, quoting a line from an 80s romantic comedy, or discussing my love for art and literature, I always have one goal in mind: to help you pursue your God-given potential; not just for your own gain, but for the glory of God and the good of the world.


About Me

I am a unique coach.

I think winning is worthless; if, in the process, you lose what matters most to you: God, love, family, friendships, making a positive impact, and the simple but infinitely valuable things that make your life enjoyable.'

Are you someone who works hard to succeed? As you pursue your goals, what are the potential losses you worry about?

Do you ever feel like you might lose focus with so much to do? How can you be sure you'll stick to the most important goals that will bring you success and happiness?
