“The tools, guidance, encouragement and unbiased advice from Danny’s coaching was like pressing the ‘fast-forward’ button on my life!  Get ready to be transformed.” –Alex K.

Four years ago I was just another lost millennial, sleeping on my mom’s couch and jealous of people who had their shit together. But today I get paid to live my dream–I write for the largest publications in the world, and I coach everyone from single parents to Fortune 500 executives.


The difference?

Strong habits and goal setting

I eliminated distracting junk–Facebook, TV, toxic relationships. Then I planned on doing nothing but the positives–more work, more creative time, more meditation, more learning…more fun! I learned how to set strong boundaries and to say no to anything low-value. Now I have the best job in the world: I teach people how to kick ass!

Whether you need help breaking through to your next career level, hitting the sweet spot in your relationship, or simply finding more balance and purpose in life, my coaching will get you where you want to go. (As long as you can take instruction! College degrees or equivalent level of self-mastery is a must.)

Here’s how the coaching works:


After our hourlong coaching sessions, I keep you accountable in your fitness goals, career goals, happiness goals, relationships goals, and self improvement goals. Could be a text or email. Could be a quick call. Whatever it is, I’m in your corner, motivating you, brainstorming solutions, and helping you to coach yourself.

Success Rituals  

You’ll learn everything there is to know about journaling, affirmations, mindfulness, note-taking, eliminating bad habits, mastering your passions, and scheduling your time. By the end of our sessions, success will be just another habit for you.

Goal Setting 

Most people feel like they’re floating in life. That’s because they don’t have momentum towards their purpose. Your work with me begins by completing a longterm goals questionnaire: you’ll get deeper into your motivations and passions than ever before, and discover your targets for the next year. Then, week by week, I teach you how to set realistic monthly, weekly, and daily goals that connect you to your purpose 24-7.

My goal setting differs from other coaches in that I prioritize self love, reflection, fitness, and fun–not just work! I teach you how to become (and stay) a balanced human being.


Let’s face it. You’re looking for a coach because you haven’t been kicking your own ass. I give you weekly challenges–from social media cleanses to TV fasts–that disrupt your old habits and supercharge your focus for the week’s goals. I also tell you the hard truths that other people are too scared to say. By week four, you’re involved in setting your own weekly ass-kicking challenges. By week twelve, you’ll have developed the discipline to become someone else’s coach.


When you hire me as your coach, you’re hiring an expert problem solver. I got where I am by journaling every night and not sleeping until I had answers to my biggest time and energy drains. I teach you how to do the same with a solutions-oriented journaling habit. But, during this course, I will help you solve your most frustrating life, relationship, and business conundrums.


I know when to push you and when to pull back. My clients thank me after every session for guiding them back into positive and empowered emotional states. And since I get to know all of my clients personally, I can sense when you need a lift–and where you need the most help.

If this is the kind of help you’re looking for–and if you’re already helping yourself!!!–email me at for your free introductory session. You can also call me directly at (505) 610 1036

Testimonials from coaching clients

Alex K, San Diego 

“If Daniel Dowling fell into your lap, consider it a blessing and a sign from the Universe that you’re ready to take a giant leap forward in your personal development.  The tools, guidance, encouragement and unbiased advice from Danny was like pressing the ‘fast-forward’ button on my life!  Get ready to be transformed.”


Julia C, New Hampshire

“I’m an aspiring health and lifestyle coach and getting to experience Dan’s coaching has skyrocketed my self-improvement and my own coaching skills in so many ways. 

Dan’s articles spoke to me and as I implemented the rituals he suggested, I experienced great improvements and a hunger for more. Within our first call, I signed up for his program right away. It was the best decision I made for myself. 

Dan is knowledgeable and positive; he helped to change my perspective in many areas of my life, and encouraged me to reach for my dreams, no matter how fearful I was. His style of goal setting constantly challenged me and motivated me to want to do and achieve more every day.

I learned and grew so much in the 6 weeks of his program: I got a promotion at work, launched my Coach site, started to write and share my writing, had weekly breakthroughs with my own clients, even lost weight and started to love and crave exercise! Above all, I got a confidence in myself, my work and my worth that I never had before. 

I’m happy to call Dan a friend now and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for my new and improved me, and for my Coaching business. Thank you, Dan!”

Linda P, Chicago

I was finally able to make the changes I longed for, thanks to my amazing, gifted & highly knowledgeable coach! Daniel gave me the directives I needed to move me forward. He kept me accountable. He encouraged me, and we celebrated my successes along the way. I made a commitment to my transformation but I couldn’t have done it without his help & inspiration. You’re a gift & a blessing dude! Love you!

Tracy F, Goa India

“I believe that when you really ask for help…the universe answers. After battling self esteem issues, destructive relationships and heading towards a general breakdown, I stumbled upon Daniel’s article on Elite daily. I felt as if it was written for me. His writing spoke to me in a way that really changed my perspective

I’ve done my share of reading books on relationships, self help and building self esteem, but nothing seemed to work. One article of Daniel’s made all the difference.

His ideas about love and relationships are exactly what the world needs today. I’ve started my healing journey with Daniel and I couldn’t be more thankful—he helped me turn my life around. I was withering away inside but now I have rediscovered my talents and am blooming again. Daniel, you are changing the world one person at a time! God bless you . You are my miracle!” 

Karina R, California

“Daniel, thank you for the coaching sessions. I can’t put into words the sense of goodness that I feel after speaking with you. It’s been years of angst and you got right to what I needed to hear and affirmed my spirit. Thank you. This was the best thing I could’ve done for myself–looking forward to the next session!”
