Rich Avery, author of Life Compass

work-life balance, personal growth blogHi, I’m Rich Avery.  Thanks for visiting Life Compass!

I’m glad you’re here, and I hope you’ll stick around and join the community.  I’d really love to hear your thoughts and comments!

I’m an ordained minister, life coach, writer, entrepreneur, and director of a faith-based nonprofit organization.

My mission in life is to help people discover their life’s purpose, do the work they love, achieve their dreams and live to their full potential in all areas of life – not just their work or career.

My greatest times are with my wife of 19 years and our five (so far) awesome kids, ages 5-14.

My Basic Philosophy

  • All of us have a unique calling in life, but few find it and really live it.  Most just let life happen to them, instead of having a clear understanding of what they were made for, a clear vision of what they want to accomplish in life, and a clearly defined plan of action to make it all happen.
  • It is possible to live to our full potential, to achieve our worthwhile goals and dreams, and live a life of freedom, purpose and fulfillment in our life and work.
  • There’s more to life than financial or career success.  I want to live a life of significance, and make a lasting difference in the lives of others.
  • Life is meant to be lived on purpose.  Real life requires intentionality.   It starts with having a vision, creating a plan, and living it out day by day.
  • From time to time, we all need a life compass – someone, or something, to give us guidance and direction, to help us set a course for the life we want and were meant to live.
