Hi. I’m Jarrod. Welcome to Heroic Coaching & Consulting. Have you ever wanted to be a hero? Or make fantasy reality? Heroic can help.
Today marks the official launch of Heroic. I am so excited to begin this new adventure! I hope you’ll join me :)
I’ll be posting articles that focus on the intersection of pop culture and personal development. I hope you’ll find something of interest and some food for thought while enjoying a bit of a different take on games, movies, comics, television and more.
My Heroic Journey
I’ve always had a passion for creativity, stories, games and helping people. I founded Heroic to provide coaching with these values at heart.
I once worked as a trade mark examiner. I saw people waste time and money, struggling over and over to understand trade marks. In addition to coaching, I aim to use my experience with trade marks to provide clear, affordable trade mark advice.
For two years before I started Heroic, I was on my own hero’s journey with challenges around health, work and stress. I didn’t realise it at first, but I had felt the call to adventure, to step into the unknown and seek the spark that would transform me.
I found it and used it to change my world.
I’ve been through other heroic journeys too. I’m a nerd, a geek and a gamer, so my journeys involved overcoming bullying at school, finding real friends and true love, moving out on my own and suddenly having to become an adult in the real world while keeping a hold of my identity and the things I’m passionate about.
Nerds, geeks and gamers are some of the most brilliant, friendly, creative people I’ve ever met. We have our own unique challenges. I founded Heroic to help everyone, but particularly to help people like us.
No matter who you are, with a little support you can break through the challenges you face, be your own hero and make fantasy reality.
You’re the hero of your life story. And even heroes don’t need to go it alone.
It’s All About You
Enough about me. Heroic is all about you.
Coaching, training, trade marks: any of these services can be tailored to your needs. Get in contact and let me know how I can best help you. No pressure. I’m happy to chat.
I’m writing these blog posts because they’re fun to write, but they’re really for you. Because why not get some free personal development covered in a shiny coating of the things you love?
I have plenty of ideas in store for the future and I’ll keep an eye on what gets the best reception here and strive to offer more of that kind of content.
