From Near Death Experiences To Disrupting The Coaching Space: A-Z Life Journey For Andrew C. Shurtleff, Ed.D.

The coaching industry is one of the fastest-growing professions globally, with an estimated worth of about $2 billion. The rapid growth of the coaching business is credited to some of the best coaching trends emerging in recent years. Andrew C. Shurtleff has been part of this disruption. 

Andrew has been one of the coaching industry’s leaders in the United States through working with private clients. He is the founder and owner of Shurtleff Coaching & Consulting LLC, which specializes in helping people avoid, mitigate, and adapt to crises. Andrew uses his extensive academic and life experience to help Americans cope with educational, professional, and wellness problems. As a Doctor of Education who graduated from Columbia University, Andrew did his doctoral work on leveraging the power of Columbia’s Core Curriculum in conjunction with New Media Technologies to help us adapt to current and emerging global crises. Andrew’s work at Columbia culminated in his book Human Maps for the Digital Age, which is available on Amazon. Whether as a coach, consultant, or author, Andrew imparts the best information possible through his sessions and group work to help you avoid, mitigate, and adapt to crises. His goal is to help you discover, gain, and recover the wherewithal necessary to meet and work through problems in the present and future. 

Background Information

Andrew developed acute mountain sickness while on a backcountry snowboarding trip that nearly claimed his life. He was only a teenager at the time. The ordeal involved cerebral edema, which is when the brain swells and cells start to die, and pulmonary edema, which is when the lungs fill with fluids and you start to drown. The problem became so severe that Andrew had to be rushed to the hospital, where a doctor informed him that if he had not come to the ER, he would not have woken up the following morning. He only had about six hours to live.

Today, Andrew is helping his clients heal and improve themselves by making the most out of their lives. Working with him as a coach will help you identify and internalize lessons learned from your problems to help you solve future challenges. Consulting with him will help you save money on your higher education journey while creating a financial foundation for life. His purpose is to help you maximize the learning opportunities of your current challenges, avoid similar ones in the future, and apply the wisdom of what you learn as you navigate new challenges down the road. 

Why Andrew Shurtleff Is Your #1 Coach

  • He Focuses On Helping You Gain Autonomy

Did you know that many wellness, professional, and academic coaches would like to trap you for years? They will not offer you information that will help you operate independently. Andrew aims to help you develop the stamina to handle crises independently without continuously needing his intervention. Working with him will help you better understand how to maximize the value of your life circumstances within the shortest possible time. 

  • He Will Add Quality To Your University Education

Do you want to retire with sufficient savings to support yourself in your later years? Many educational consultants will only train you on how to pass university exams, but nothing else on what follows. By contrast, Andrew equips you with life skills aimed at helping you achieve financial liberty early in life so you can live your entire life to the fullest, not only during your sunset years.

In addition, since your body is more susceptible to diseases as you age, you will need adequate cash to cover health-related expenses. Andrew goes above and beyond to mentor you on the best strategies to maximize your savings during your educational years by keeping higher education costs as low as possible and helping you create your financial foundation for life. He does this by focusing on alternative pathways through higher education, how to get your education to pay off, and strategies for parlaying your educational achievement into a fulfilling career. Andrew offers his advisement alongside whatever investment advice you may receive.

  • Educates You on How to Avoid, Mitigate, and Adapt to Crisis

The student loan debt trap is one of the greatest slaveries of our time. Do you want to avoid debt and maximize your educational opportunities? Andrew will guide you on limiting your debt exposure while helping you create a financial foundation for life. This includes making the most out of your educational and professional journey, where Andrew helps you leverage the learning of your life experience to the maximum degree. He will help you develop an effective way to avoid, mitigate, and adapt to the vicious higher education debt cycle.

Shurtleff for mentorship and guidance on how to live a fulfilling life by identifying and achieving your academic, professional, and life goals.
