David Olivo

David Olivo

Certified Life and Business Coach

Being a Professional Coach is one of those professions where its importance is often misunderstood in the context of entrepreneurship. 

Read More

Whenever anyone asks me about what I do I find myself addressing the ‘process’ of uncovering and identifying the what is holding a person back from living their dream and being the best ‘entrepreneur’ they can possibly. As a professional and Certified Navigator Coach it is my job to provide a sacred confidential space and be an unbiased sounding board. There is no “business” versus “personal,” It is only the “you.”

I am also a certified Dream Coach ® and Holistic Emotional Intelligence Coach© and my entire approach is holistic – think of a fine Swiss timepiece. Only when everything is working together can the desired results be achieved – sometimes the adjustment is minor…you just have to know where to look and how to make it.

The Navigator makes is easy to “connect the dots” and have everything working together! With over 35 years experience working in Engineering and a business owner since 2009, I understand both the employee and business owner perspectives and excel at assisting clients in clarifying their goals and creating their personal blueprint to success.

The Navigator is proud and honored to have David a part of our coaching and marketing teams.
