Learn To Innovate!

Kevin’s book about innovation includes the integral part

Emotional Health plays. 

Innovate The 1%


I want life to be easier and happier.

I want you to know You Matter.

It may sound generic and obvious but most of us are struggling in some aspect of life which means our overall well-being is compromised.

I support BALANCED WELLNESS by providing insight and practical tools to nurture your

Physical, Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual Health.

The healthier we are, the better and happier we feel, and happy people do good things.

Balanced Wellness Coach

Well-being is like the four tires of a car. If just one is flat or over-inflated then your car doesn’t run well. This is why I focus on Physical, Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual Health. Anything less isn’t balanced wellness.

Connect with me and tell me about your passions, the people you serve, and the problems you want to solve. Together, we’ll make it happen!

Physical Health

Balanced Wellness often begins with our physical health. Check out my Infographic Athletic & Outdoors Resume.

It’s true, we tend to focus heavliy on our physical health and that’s been true for me too. I’ve spent decades experiencing and learning about fitness, nutrition, endurance athleticism, and backcountry adventures. I’m not perfect but I try hard to practice what I preach and embody a healthy lifestyle, everyday.

“I never considered that innovation was linked to emotional health, but of course it is!  Kevin’s insight and understanding instantly resonated with me, and I was riveted by his examples and the workshop he facilitated. The connection is so simple yet so often missed, but Kevin made it clear.”

“I first met Kevin prior to joining a bunch of other entrepreneurs at the No Longer Virtual summit back in 2019. He’d set up some time to chat since he saw I was going to be one of the contributors, and we started getting to know each other. I wasn’t sure what his specialty was, but I could tell he was passionate about it and I’ve always tried to surround myself with people like that. Fast forward to the conference, and his contribution was to have a roundtable discussion (one of 3 or 4 others) and originally we were supposed to rotate to another table at the end of the time. But we all had just gotten engrossed in what he was talking about as it relates to emotional health that we all were like, “…is it ok if we just stay here? Is that bad?” Well of course it wasn’t, so we got twice as much knowledge. Kevin really knows a lot about how the human mind works, and about where we fall down when it comes to maintaining our own emotional health. There’s plenty that we’ve forgotten about over the generations, and the “norm” as it were really isn’t normal. We’re able to get above the things that keep us mired in poor emotional health, and fortunately Kevin knows how to help others do that.”

At each No Longer Virtual Summit, our agenda includes “speed sessions”, 30-minute table-top discussions facilitated by select participants of the event. We offer 6 topics and participants switch tables twice, giving people opportunities to explore 3 topics. When I invited Kevin Strauss to host a table at the 2019 event, the intention was to experience his energy and content to explore the potential for him to host a full session for a future event.

The guests at his table never left. They continued the discussion on Emotional Health for the duration of the speed sessions. Every participant was engaged and inspired. It was obvious that a full session at NLV 2020 would be a great addition to our curriculum for the summit. As expected, Kevin captivated our participants in 2020. His interactive, engaging, workshop-style presentation continues to be a topic of conversation among participants more than a year later.

As an event planner and the host of the summit, I couldn’t have selected a more appropriate, mind-blowing topic and presenter for my guests. I have every intention of hiring him for another event in the near future.”
