Professional Affiliations & Coursework
My career in Life & Executive Coaching began in 2001, following several life-changing personal growth courses I participated in, and later began staffing. Then graduates started calling me for additional support, and my coaching practice was born and has progressively expanded ever since. I am professionally trained and certified, have completed over 300 hours of advanced training beyond my certification requirements, and since 1978, I have participated in and facilitated many life expanding workshops and seminars. After more than 16 years of professional coaching, I have current and former clients in Australia, Europe, Canada, South America, and all across the U.S. I've also worked for Anthony Robbins' company, Robbins Research International from 2008-2010 & 2012-2013, as an elite Results Coach for executives, entrepreneurs, sales leaders, stock market traders, government officials, military personnel, and many other professionals worldwide.
Prior to coaching, I had careers as a National Sales Manager in business telecom and data, a General Manager for a manufacturing/distribution company, Equities Options & Futures Trader & Asset Manager for my own investment firm, Construction Manager, Property Manager, Real Estate Investments, and ten lively years working and living with teens as a Football, Basketball, and Baseball Coach, and Resident Counselor. Along with professional coach training and experience, my entire career path has helped to develop my love for and skill set in coaching clients, especially ones who want to go for their dreams, improve the quality of their life, and are willing to do what it takes.
During client sessions, I use intuitive listening and powerful questions to create a safe, non-judgmental, truth-telling environment, so you can freely explore possibilities and take empowered action toward realizing your goals and dreams. I have coached clients on business expansion, sales & marketing, relationships, emotional mastery, finance, time management, careers, and many other areas, yet I believe ultimate purpose underlies all of these. So, I stand for clients living according to their heart and calling, and am always inspired to see how they are supported with abundant resources when they do.
After seven years of writing, integrating, and working with clients on the concepts, I completed a book called Being Love: 26 Keys to Experiencing Unconditional Love, a manual on feeling and expressing unconditional love, removing the obstacles to it, and realizing what it costs not to. Being Love was copyrighted and published by iUniverse in 2011, and has received wonderful reviews on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Being Love gives practical steps to unblocking and deepening the experience of love with oneself, others, and one’s Source. I have hosted a bi-weekly meditation group at my home with close friends, play guitar, sing, surf, ride motocross, and am a nature photographer as well as an oil painter. All of the nature images on this Web site are from my portfolio. More can be seen on my photography site: https://mark-andrewpetroff.smugmug.com
Clients, friends, and associates have told me that my strengths are integrity, business sense, non-judgmental listening, creativity, inspiration, authenticity & directness, broad life experience (which includes many mistakes & huge setbacks, as well as successes), wit, the ability to make the complex seem simple, accountability, self-discipline, courage, devotion to knowing Divinity, and trustworthiness.
