Joe Coughlin - Burnout Prevention Expert

Specializing in life-changing perspective shifts that bring peace-of-mind and balance to the overwhelmed, overworked, and over-scheduled.

Joe has had an amazing life - first growing up in Virginia, then experiencing what he laughingly calls, "The Hollywood Years," in Los Angeles with his lovely wife Leah, and finally settling down to raise a family and open a restaurant in Bakersfield, California.  He has done everything from horseback riding with his wife Leah in the Australian Outback, to backward barefoot waterskiing, to driving the White House Press Pool car for President Reagan.  He draws on a life full of mis-steps, adventures, and dumb luck, as he takes his audience on a fun (and often serious) educational romp with stops at each of the Ten key lessons that make up Coconut College.
