The work you do pays the bills. But how much is it costing you?
You’re putting in time at the office so that you can stay on top of your expenses.
You feel stress and exhaustion in every bone of your body.
You’re a grown up with real responsibilities but your current job does not bring you fulfillment.
You have employees and colleagues – and perhaps a boss who count on you to show up.

You can’t walk away from your job, because you need the money but something needs to change. Let’s make that change right now.

You can be happy and fulfilled at work and in your life.
You don’t have to spend your days counting the hours until you go to sleep,
so that you can wake up and head back out into the rat race.

What exactly is a suited monk?

Every day, you go out in the world wearing your suit — whether it’s a custom-designed 3-piece Armani, a workshirt and jeans, or your comfiest workout gear. Your suit isn’t so much about the clothes themselves, but the image you present to the outside world. Your suit is the version of you that everyone sees.

Your monk has nothing to do with your religion. Rather, “monk” is the term that represents the inner you. Your passions. The things that light you up and bring joy into your life. Your monk is often the version of you that no one sees — sometimes, not even you.

A suited monk is a person who has managed to brings these two discrete personalities into one whole person.
