She’s scared that she may waste her “good” years with the wrong man and will eventually end up alone -- never having found the right man for her.
She wants a “real man” -- not a macho jerk or a new age wimp.

What Others Have Said About Working With Tripp
On the (nearly) 12-month anniversary of the start of our work together, I wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how valuable it has been for me. When I came to you, I was a pessimistic, deeply scripted, and unhappy guy who lived for external validation. Outwardly, I was achieving, but inwardly I felt hollow and unfulfilled. As you would say, I was living small. I was out of touch with what I wanted. Instead, I was trying to manage the expectations of the people around me. I was addicted to safety and certainty.
Isn’t it funny how much things have changed? Today, my life is totally different. I feel more alive. I’m living bigger. I’m learning to see what I want out of life and what I value, and living in integrity with that. I’m more grounded in who I am and my value as a person. I’m no longer doing tricks in the hopes of being thrown a bone.
I feel like the new me is showing up more fully in every aspect of my life. My relationships, intimate and otherwise, are stronger and more open. Some of my friends and family say they barely recognize me. They say that they feel that they can trust me more, like I’m not trying to hide. I’m more motivated and passionate in my creative work. Instead of causing me stress and anxiety, my work is something that excites me. I’m more productive, and what I create is a more authentic expression of myself and of higher quality.
I owe a huge part of my growth to the work we’ve done over the past year. You’ve got a huge amount of wisdom and a killer intuition. I can think of a few ways in particular that you’ve helped me. First, you get the heart of problem quickly and frame it in a way that I can relate to easily. This helps me see my barriers and blind spots. Second, you give me a lot of guidance to help overcome these sticking points. Third, our relationship keeps me accountable. In my experience, real change takes commitment. You’re there to help me set goals, commit to them, and follow through. Finally, the relationship gives me a safe place to experiment with ideas and express feelings. It can be uncomfortable, but I feel completely free to express myself without censoring.
Our work together is a process and I’m still growing every day. But I feel that I’ve come so far already, and it gives me strength to keep going. I can’t wait to see what the next year of our work together brings!
I’ve been where you are right now. I was sitting there looking at Tripp's website trying to decide if a Life Coach was something that would help me. I read the testimonials. I listened to his podcasts and knew him to be a very amazingly insightful person. After all of that, I just couldn't bring myself to pick up the phone and make that first call.
One day, I finally made a critical decision. I no longer wanted to live an unfulfilled (and conflict-filled) life and I needed help to do that. So, I picked up the phone and called.
Since then, many people have asked me why anyone would need a Life Coach. "Why not just get a counselor?" they ask. As someone who has spent many hours on the counseling couch, I can sum it up very simply for you: Think of someone trying to teach you to play basketball. A counselor would tell you, "This game requires you to dribble. What would dribbling look like to you?" A life coach says, "You need to learn how to dribble. Here's how." And they tell you!
I know this may seem like an over-simplistic explanation, but believe it or not, some of us were never taught very basic tools for life. For example, I had never been told effective ways to set boundaries. Nor had I been told how to identify and eleviate conflict in my life. Tripp knew how to quickly identify my issues. He presented the tools and resources I needed.
Tripp has worked with me on many levels and taught me very important lessons on how to lead a life with purpose and meaning. I may not be perfect, but I am in a much better place today due to his guidance and knowledge.

"I had been searching for help to sort out frustrations with goals, follow through, and feeling like I'm constantly spinning my wheels when I found Tripp. Mainly I didn't feel sure about where my life was going and what I really wanted. I was worried it would be a waste of time and money to hire a coach, especially one I hadn't met personally since we worked together over the phone. But after the first call I knew it was what I needed. He really helped me learn to "check-in" with myself and figure out what was going on, and what I needed. Sometimes there would be big new insights and sometimes he'd just get me back on the track I already knew but wasn't following on my own.
After even just a few weeks I can say my wife noticed a change & I felt more confident and calm. This was a huge boost to the beginning of a lifelong growth process. I'd definitely recommend working with him. The process of talking the same time each week develops a routine with momentum and it works."
Matt N., Minnesota
“I was at point of deep dissatisfaction in my life. My marriage was flat and lacked connection, I was feeling dull and unfocused at work (in a job that I felt like I should have loved), and I was unable to get moving in a new creative pursuit I felt was the next phase of my life's purpose. After many, many months of wallowing in this painful, frustrating, and draining place, I knew I had to do something about it. I had been listening to The New Man Podcast for a year or so, and was drawn to Tripp's personality and his themes of clarity and action. I doubted I could afford to work 1 on 1 with him, but figured I only have one life, so I should at least inquire.
It was the best decision I've made in years. Tripp had no magic potion or spells, just simple questions that turned out to make all the difference. From the outset I felt at ease and comfortable talking with him. There's no BS with Tripp; he's a straight shooter who was fully attuned to me and didn't come at me with psychobabble or new age mumbo jumbo. He helped me break through walls I didn't know I was building for myself. In 5 weeks I accomplished goals I thought it would take a year to reach. That's a fact. I'm on my way to a better life, made of better moments. He gave me simple guidelines I can apply on my own, though I know he's just a phone call or email away if I want to talk to him. Oh, and best of all he's worth every penny.”

“Before working with Tripp, I felt lost and confused and frustrated beyond belief. I didn't know what I wanted and I was out of touch with my purpose. When I thought of hiring a coach, I thought ‘Can some guy who doesn't even really know me actually help me? And more importantly, WILL HE EVEN CARE!?’ I thought the financial investment was a big risk and I would really be taking a chance.
Working with Tripp allowed me to gain the clarity I needed to go for the career that fused my passion and my financial concerns. He helped me realize where I had old scripts running in my life - even to the point that I realized I wasn't even living my life for me! He helped me to reclaim the initiative to live my life for me and to own what I truly wanted. I felt like I could be my BEST SELF for the first time in my life - without needing the permission of anyone! And he has really helped me to develop a no B.S. relationship with myself, which has improved my relationship with my girlfriend, my friends, and the world at large.
I can really feel the full JOY of being ME and I get to have a life that really excites me! He helped me to find and live my purpose and has given me the tools to empower myself. I would most definitely recommend you 'get on it' when it comes to working with a solid, present guy like Tripp.

“I was waking up tired. I was unfocused at work. But the worst: I increasingly felt trapped; trapped by indecision, confusion, and really just getting in my own head. I had been to traditional "councilors"; but I could tell I didn't need someone to listen to me, I needed a kick in the ass. I needed someone to hear me, challenge me, and really get me out of my own way.
This is exactly what I got working with Tripp - he was very accommodating of both my work and payment schedule - but didn't let either be an excuse for me lapsing back into my malaise. Working with Tripp, I was challenged to walk through the resistance I put in my own way, and get in touch with the stuff I found really exciting; stuff that I had lost, or maybe never knew about myself. Tripp didn't let me get away with any excuses; and also challenged me not to get ahead of myself: no lying to myself, no posturing to myself. He encouraged me to get curious about my own feelings, and start to open up to them rather than censor my own experience.
Being totally honest, working with Tripp wasn't a cakewalk - he doesn't coddle. He's challenging, he's engaging, and he's going to ask you to be the same. Since working with him, in only a few months, I already see changes in my life; a new level of focus at work, able to enjoy myself again, a new kind of curiosity with women. Really, I'm just not in my head as much as I was; I'm curious about new things in life. If your find yourself reading any of this, and feel a little tinge of fear thinking about making the plunge into working with Tripp, then do it -- that's the sign; that fear is pointing you in the right direction. Tripp helped teach me that.”

“I had some serious doubts about what tangible outcomes could be achieved with a coach. I have always been a self-help book-reading-looking-for-my-purpose-everywhere-unfocused-type-of-guy. The idea of actually being held accountable to an authentic man who would call BULLSH*T when I was holding back or not facing my sh*t was scary to me.
Now after working with Tripp for a full year I can say without any reservation I am a BETTER MAN. With his help, we set tangible goals and he will keep my feet to the fire when he sees me losing focus. Another really cool thing about his coaching is that he will help you formulate what I like to call my “fundamentals of wholeness”, which are the things that I do daily to keep me connected to my CORE VALUES.
I have learned and gained many things from working with Tripp, but the one thing that I truly appreciate the most is the sense that I don’t have to go looking for answers outside myself. I have more integrity about what I want out of life. If you are on the fence about hiring Tripp, don’t be. Tripp will go over and above your expectations.”

I’ve had four personal coaches in the past five years, and ultimately I dropped them all, thinking I was just too slippery for them.
I got to know Tripp through his podcast. I thought, “This guy is laser sharp.” Then I signed up for his group calls and listened to him work with other guys. He did not disappoint.
Then my mom died, my freelance copywriting gigs dried up, and my relationship was going downhill. On top of that, I was having trouble with my theatre group, the one area where I had found my true purpose. I got depressed and was doing all the things I knew not to do (numbing out in a big way). I could feel that little Saboteur inside me fingering the “Let’s F*** This Up” button. So, I decided I needed to give myself the gift of Tripp’s coaching before I crashed.
Tripp advised me to take a step back. Instead of jumping in with guns blazing, we focused on the fundamentals of self-care. I was exhausted and didn’t even know it. You can’t get far on empty. He helped me discover what was true, and how I was dancing around the truth, trying to avoid upsetting others. After every meeting, he asked me to write a recap of what I got from our calls, which proved to be very valuable and helped the coaching stick.
With Tripp’s help, I grew a third testicle (or perhaps just found the two God had given me) to deal with unnecessary dramas in my life, and got the confidence to calm the parts of myself that believed I wasn’t worthy of the good things coming to me. In the end, I got clear, focused and at choice in my life.

Before I hired Tripp, I was confused about my career path. I had a fairly good idea about what I didn’t want to do, but not so much what I really wanted. After working together for a while, Tripp showed me how to listen to my body, and how to filter out the noise and really listen to that voice within.
I loved becoming more aware about the things that energize me, and the things that really weigh me down. I was surprised to discover that such little things that energize me, when put together and done consistently can have such an amazing impact on my whole life. This has been an amazing journey and I would highly recommend working with Tripp to anyone who is looking for more clarity in their life.

“The thing is ... the few sessions I had with you actually helped me to "grow a pair" and do something radical with my life. You might remember that I was conflicted about purpose, spirituality and trying to find balance between career and family. It's strange how the small decisions we make can end up making a massive difference. My decision to decline a promotion and concentrate on my family values has ended up with a significantly better opportunity for both myself and my wife. I believe the lessons I learned from you about being in touch with my desires, aligning these with my values and expressing what I want have been instrumental in bringing this about. So I'd like to say another big thank you and let you know that I'll be in touch in a while for some more coaching.”
Paul Manson, Glasgow, U.K.
“Tripp is the reason that I now feel like I'm on fire. I came to him shut down and lost, running unconsciously on a script I hadn't written. With honor, grace, skill and compassion, Tripp helped me cut through the crap, and to really look at what was going on for me. He challenged me, and he called me on my bull shit. He supported me with such a high level of skill, through the good and the bad, all the while going deeper, and further. I have developed a thorough understanding of myself with the help of Tripp. I know what I need to do to make my life awesome, because now it is. I know what I need to do to be myself, because now I am. I am truly grateful, and look forward to working with you again soon.”
Simon Lawry, Brisbane, Australia
I really want take a minute to express my gratitude for you and our work together over the past three months. This is a time in my life when I'm going thru a pivotal transition, and have been in need of guidance, advice and wisdom. You've really come thru for me on all fronts and been an incredible teacher. I'm constantly humbled by your knowledge, sensitivity, charisma, humility and leadership. You're great at what you do, Tripp. You've set my life on a different course, and I'll be forever grateful for that. I'm really looking forward to picking back up in the forth coming months.

To anyone on the fence about hiring a coach over the phone, I was also skeptical at first. I had never done this before and had no idea about what kind of results were possible over the phone, if any. However one thing I did know was that I had a burning desire to overcome my own personal problem (shyness) and was willing to do more than reading a few books to solve it. I took the plunge and scheduled a meeting with Tripp and am glad I did it. Not only has he helped me relax and logically think about my problem, I am able to enjoy myself and actually have fun with it. I have already achieved great results after 3 months of coaching. Tripp has coached me using a model that does achieve results no matter what aspect of your life you are looking to pursue and the results, while based on your own work, are definite. I highly recommend hiring Tripp as a coach to work with any aspect of your life you are willing to expand.
JC, Erie, PA
I was pretty stuck and there has been a clearing. You were part of that. You introduced me to some practices that I still value highly in my life and to some ideas that continue to resonate deeply with me on a daily basis.
So, I, for one, am hoping you get what you want this year cos there is a shit load of coaches out there making money with a damn sight less talent and knowledge than yourself.
Karl W., UK
“Tripp’s coaching was game-changing for me. My overall quality of life improved dramatically and major issues that I never addressed were overcome. I'd recommend Tripp's coaching to anyone...you can't put a price tag on taking your life to the next level.”
