Live for Yourself (LFY) Consulting

Your coaching based leadership solution

We coach and develop leaders to find more meaning in life and at work, and then be able to lead others to do the same.

LFY Consulting, based in Chicago, IL, offers coaching and consulting services for intrapreneurial business professionals that are in managerial or directorial level positions and feel stuck or unfulfilled at work. They tend to contemplate starting their own business, changing positions, or even careers in order to find greater meaning in life and at work.

Too often people seek greater meaning in life and at work externally, such as from a new job or an entrepreneurial venture without ever actually finding meaning. The hard truth though, is that personal meaning is really an inside job. You need to focus on the personal side of things, and that’s your internal leader. That’s where we can help.

I signed up for a coaching program [with LFY Consulting] because I felt stuck. I couldn’t find meaning at work and I actually started resenting my job for holding me back. Something had to change but I didn’t know what or how to decide. In less than three months of coaching and taking action I finally felt like I was on the right path, that my work was meaningful, and I found the clarity and developed the skills I needed to keep going.


You don’t have to feel stuck. There’s a process and system that you can learn to find more meaning in life and at work.

You’ve been successful in your professional career, but you’ve proven that being successful doesn’t mean you actually feel successful, or are able to help others feel successful. Your behaviors, habits, and mindset - your internal system - isn’t going to lead you toward your new goals.

This is the future of personal and leadership development. Everyone can and deserves to feel fulfilled at work and in life.

LFY Consulting understands how today’s society and the associated pressures lack the ability to find and cultivate meaning. The big picture has little to do with your salary, job title, and it’s still a lot bigger then what most coaches preach as the holy grail, your values.

In order to create an impact in an organization, for yourself, others, and ultimately the world, you need to be able to consistently live a life of meaning, knowing and making choices that are aligned with who you are, and then be able to lead others in learning how to do the same for themselves.

A life of meaning is a life of fulfillment, and a life of fulfillment is a great place to live and work.

LFY Consulting spreads this modern message of personal and professional development through it’s unique and exclusive LIVE system that is at the heart of all of its coaching and consulting, but also through workshops, a series of events, it’s podcast, products, and courses.

Too often people take the "easy" way out when they feel stuck at work. They leave. Initially it makes sense to think that to find more meaning at work you need to find a new job. Ultimately though, if you were to fast forward 2 years you're going to feel the same way. That's not to say that you can't find meaning in a new job, but it's implying that finding meaning is more of an inside job. If you’re wondering how to make the most out of any job you’re at, then this course is for you.
