I went from my Mom’s couch to the top of the writing world in two short years
by becoming a master of self-improvement. Now I’m transforming your life by sharing
the habits and lifestyles that elevate you into the top 5% of self-improvers worldwide.

About Dan:

Today I’m a featured expert in Fast Company and Entrepreneur Magazines for my advice on optimal wellness and living, and I’m a coach to Ivy League graduates and Inc 500 executives. Only four years ago, though, I was the classic failure-to-launch Millennial: constantly distracted, always on social media, and chasing relationships like it was a full-time job. But after a gut-wrenching breakup I decided to be single for a year.

In that year I changed everything about my day-t0-day existence and rose rapidly to the top of my profession because I started some powerful habits–like planning, reflecting, and eliminating my distractions. That’s how I learned to consistently give my best effort toward living out my passion, and it’s how I got rid of the excuses that kept me playing small ball for so long.

Now I teach everything I’ve learned about strategy, wellness and personal development to radically improve the lives of my audience and clients–whether that’s through achieving your weightloss goals, fitness goals, career goals, or by overhauling your entire life. I pride myself in inspiring my clients and giving them the brand new lives they deserve. And I love what I do!!!

Check out the details of my coaching program!

1-Weekly Support

Your hourlong sessions with me are the one space in your week that’s all about you. I’m there with you, celebrating your successes, listening to your struggles, encouraging you, making you guffaw occasionally, and brainstorming with you to make the next week another breakthrough week. As much as our time together is about strategizing and learning, it’s also about decompressing and having some fun together.


After our hourlong coaching sessions, I keep you on track and excuse-free in all the goals you’ve struggled with: fitness, career, fun/self love, and self improvement. The program starts with three check-ins per week and gradually reduces to 1 by week 10. Sometimes it’s you giving me a breakdown of your week via email; sometimes it’s me checking in on you via text or phone. But my motto for you is “Whatever it takes.”

I’ve called my clients every morning at 10:00 sharp to keep them accountable to work they’d been avoiding…I’ve scheduled nightly venting calls during really challenging times…I’ve woken up at 3:00am for emergency calls with transcontinental clients. So I’ll do whatever it takes to keep you accountable!

3-Success Routines

I share the exact steps that transformed my inner world and took me to the upper echelons of writing and wellness in just a few years. You’ll learn everything there is to know about journaling, affirmations, mindfulness, healthy living, note-taking, eliminating bad habits, mastering your passions, scheduling your time, and being confident in everything you do. By the end of our sessions, success will be your lifestyle, and you will have ZERO excuses!

4-Goal Setting

One of the most valuable skills you’ll learn from my coaching is goal setting. Your coaching program begins with an introductory workbook where we figure out the long-term goals you want to work towards, the obstacles you want to overcome, and the lifestyle changes that are most important for you. Then I teach you a simple strategy for monthly, weekly and daily goal setting that makes your longterm goals inevitable. I gradually give you more and more responsibility in goal-setting, and breaking down your weekly reviews. Then, by the end, you will be proficient enough in goal setting (and goal execution) that you can teach it yourself: to friends, family, employees, and clients.


Let’s face it: you’re looking for a coach because you haven’t been kicking your own ass. That’s where I come in! I give you weekly challenges–from social media cleanses to TV fasts–that disrupt your old habits, that obliterate your excuses, and that supercharge your focus for the week’s goals. By week 4, you’re involved in setting your own weekly ass-kicking challenges. By week 10, you’ll have developed the discipline and self-accountability to become someone else’s coach!

Here are some success stories from my coaching clients:


Scott, Albuquerque

“Dan helped me drop 50 pounds in four months. I’d been struggling with pre-diabetes and hypertension for years when I found him through a local athletic club. He gave me the planning tools I needed to stick with a ketogenic diet, and he helped me create an active lifestyle that has given me my confidence and energy back! Now my sons are even working out with me every day. I owe it all to the DD.

Oh–and my doctor smiled for the first time in 10 years when he looked at my post-weightloss numbers.”

Alexandra J, 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 D, New Hampshire

“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 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

Love you!”

Emma, Las Vegas

“Dan’s coaching program is like professional organizing for your life. He taught me how to methodically plan for and accomplish a ten-year old list of procrastinations that used to make me feel so helpless. Now that I have my note-taking practice, my daily planner, and my smartphone reminders, I don’t have to worry about anything anymore. My anxiety has disappeared.”

Kimanzi Constable: Four-time author and global consultant

“Reading Daniel Dowling’s article and thoughts about spending a single year changed my perspective and the direction of my future. I have been in relationships since I was 15 years old. After the end of a toxic relationship, I was looking to jump into the next relationship because it was all I knew.

His article was my wake up call. What he said made so much sense, and I could see that I would never find true love until I found it in myself. For me to love and be with someone else, I realized that I needed one year alone to work through my issues.

It’s been seven months and my life is completely different. I’ve lost 113 pounds, I’ve repaired my relationship with my kids, and my business is better than it’s ever been. I owe Daniel so much. He is the real deal and a mentor that I will learn from for years to come. Take his advice. Hire him as your coach. Spending a year single is life-changing.”

Jen, California

“Daniel, I just want to say thank you for calling me out yesterday. Felt so good to do all the things I’d been procrastinating on—I can definitely see the benefit now and I’m feeling like I’m on track because of your hard-but-true words. I’m also feeling so excited and motivated to get out on my own. Thank you, thank you, thank you for not giving up on me and for kicking my ass when I needed it!”

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 coaching. 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!”

Wayne, Massachusetts

“This has been a complete life 180—in my marriage, in my job, in my personal life. I couldn’t have done any of this without Dan’s coaching.”

Mara, Canada

“Dan has given me the tools I need to make fearless and intelligent decisions, like signing up for public speaking courses on my own initiative, and pursuing the career I’m passionate about. I never would have done this without the planning and mindfulness tools that he taught me. Dan also helped me regain my confidence, which has strengthened every single one of my relationships. I used to feel so much judgement from my parents and family. But now I can see how proud they are of me–of how much I’ve grown as a person in such a short time. I can’t thank Dan enough for his incredible coaching service. It’s truly life-changing.”

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. This was the best thing I could’ve done for myself–looking forward to the next session!”
