Daniel Olexa, A.C.C., C.P.C., C.C.H.T.

Lead Facilitator

Co-author of two Amazon #1 Bestsellers: Practical Manifesting, and A Pessimist’s Guide to Manifesting. He is also the creator of Amazon bestseller, My Two Minute Journal. Daniel brings more than 25 years of professional problem solving to his coaching practice.

Beyond his corporate, creative, marketing and broadcasting experience, he is proud to have served in the United State Coast Guard Reserve for 9 years.

Daniel's practice is client-centered & he loves looking for answers that others may not see, refusing to settle for the expedient solution, but asking the right questions to help chart a course towards his client's most heartfelt desires. 

One of his early mentors said of him:

"Dan naturally sees systems. He understands how one thing flows to the next; how every step is related to the outcome."

An avid scuba diver, Daniel holds the credential of PADI IDC Staff Instructor. He has helped many tentative students learn to breathe underwater by gently coaching them past their fears so that they could experience an entirely new world in the sea.

When Dan teaches he helps the students who feel like they are underwater in class to learn to breathe and swim again.
