“Over the years, Lanre Olusola has helped me make the picture unfold and it’s amazing how I’ve seen the fragments converge into this amazing journey that has become mine as a person, brand, musician, photographer and artist. I can do it all because I have felt it, I gained immense clarity on how ALL these fit together into one, within the context of my purpose. Having Lanre Olusola as my coach is definitely a gift from God” TY BELLO – Musician, Photographer.

You seem to have everything; a flourishing career, comfortable home, nice clothes, a great academic portfolio, a loving family but deep down, you feel you are not there yet, something is still missing; or perhaps, where you are is not where you wish to be, you just don’t know what to do with your life and you think you need help to become the better version of you, or you feel undervalued, you feel regressed, your current state isn’t your dream state, you urgently need to move from where you are to where you desire to be, or you know there is more you can achieve but somehow you are stuck. You need to seek professional guidance right now! The time to reinstate your values, dreams and goals, and make it 100% achievable is right now!

Take Ronke as an example. Ronke lived a life people around her termed as ‘successful and fulfilled.’ She had a career that made people envious, but deep within her she knew she was not where she desired to be. She felt unfulfilled, stuck and did not have the courage to move on as she didn’t even know what to do; but she needed answers, she needed clarity, she needed someone or something to motivate her to take that bold step and make her believe in her dreams. She felt she needed a coach that will guide her through the changes she desired in her life.

She sought the aid of a professional coach, though sceptical about its outcomes, but with an open mind, she started her coaching classes. She experienced her “aha” moment as answers to her problems began to unravel from within her. She became more aware of herself and the options that had always been available to her. She regained her confidence and boldly took actionable steps, focusing on expressing her capabilities to the fullest.

Ronke wished she knew about this a long time ago. Amazing isn’t it?
“I absolutely believe that people UNLESS COACHED never reach their MAXIMUM CAPABILITIES” – BOB NARDELLI

“I believed life’s problems all have spiritual solutions. But over 30 years of ministering experience, I realised that often times there are issues that confront you with parishioners and all kinds of individuals that doesn’t answer completely to the spiritual. I realise that there is a gap in our training as pastors that needed to be filled; and that is the fact that often times we don’t tell them the aspect of the soul and how they can psychologically be able to take care of certain problems in their lives. It is to that end that I decided when I heard about OLCA………..” EGBUN GBAIBU – Full time Pastor, Lawyer, Consultant.
