Meet Max
The Online Life Coach Specializing in Transition and Transformation

When it comes to life coaching, my approach is simple. I won’t bombard you with information, science and statistics. Equally, I won’t force stock wisdom and platitudes in your direction. For me, the key to a successful transition – no matter what that might entail – is transformation.

There’s no blueprint and no simple fix that works with every person. Transformation is about peeling back the layers, tracing your journey to date and figuring out the steps that will get you to where you need to be.

Together, we’ll get to know the real you and uncover the key to your unique transformation.

About Your Online Life Coach.

Although my given name is Randy Nesbitt, please call me Max. It’s who I am. At least since I was 9-years old. This is the story of how I came to be called Max.

As a child growing up in a small town in the Southwest, my mother had a difficult time getting me to pull away from the TV. One day she came in and said that a woman had moved next door with two boys and that I should go ask if they could play. I ran and knocked on the door. A woman came to the door and looked down from the top of the steps. It seemed very intimidating. I blurted out, “Can your boys come out and play?” She replied, “Oh, I’m sorry. They are with their father. Who should I tell them came by?” The combination of looking up at this woman from the bottom of the steps and having never been asked that before caused me to panic. I said, “Max,” and ran back home shaking my head wondering why I had given that name.

A couple of days later I came in from playing outside and my mother asked me, “What did you tell that woman next door your name was?” I said, “Max.” “Why?” she asked. “I don’t know,” I replied and began to cry. All summer that family lived next door and those two boys called me Max. It seemed like the most natural thing. Other than using the name when ordering at Starbucks, it wasn’t until I attended a men’s retreat many years ago that I began to use the name with my closest friends. It resonated with me and seemed to be more of a reflection of who I truly was.

"Names are powerful. They can carry so much energy, emotion, and influence just by how they are said."

Tone and volume can turn a name from a blessing into a curse even without adding any derogatory expletives. You may feel like your name does not fit who you truly are. Maybe you feel it’s time to change what you are called because you have changed or are in the process of changing.

Now is a good time to explore that if you are in transition. It’s not a necessity to change your name, but it is always a good thing to explore when in transition. What is most important is what you call yourself rather than what others call you. After coming out of a transitory period, you may be given a name or title which reflects what you have overcome.

I look forward to walking with you through the transitions of your life and discovering the name which resonates with your heart.
