Discover, Create and Mastermind With Peers at a Beautiful, Tropical Resort

Join us on-location for a Christian Coaching “Advance”, the Barefoot Mastermind! This event will take place at the 4.5 star Westin Cape Coral Resort in Cape Coral, Florida. You will love the unique, tranquil ambiance of this tropical resort with its upscale amenities and marina, at very reasonable room rates. We found that our guests could get better rates through services such as Travelocity, Expedia than the stated group rates, so you are advised to check those booking options first.

group - mealIn addition to empowering and educational sessions, we are offering opportunities for 1 to 1 coaching, marketing training and networking / fellowship segments and group sessions on the beach or poolside. You will be encouraged to take your shoes off, relax and reach inside to discover the unique gifts and blessings that God wants you to share with the world. Nothing stuffy about this event. Just you and others much like you who are seeking personal and professional discovery, growth and revelation.

How great will it be to meet other coaches and counselors who will speak into your life as you will speak into theirs. Lots of opportunities to create, plan, mastermind with brilliant attendees and discover possible partnerships and joint ventures. In this beautiful environment, you can learn the needed skills to take your coaching or other “people helping” career or ministry to the next level. BUT … This event is not only for coaches and counselors; it is for anyone who wants to grow, meet others in this profession, receive or offer 1-to-1 coaching, learn, get certified and/or relax and have fun while they get closer to God and His creation each and every day! Let go and let God reveal His plan for you.

You were born to make manifest the glory of God within you!

What or who is holding you back?

“We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? meant to shineActually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let… (God’s light shine from within us) … we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” ~ adapted from M. Williamson

Now is YOUR time for a bigger vision, grander plan and inspired action!

What To Expect ...

Plan for training, networking, 1 to 1 coaching, masterminding, hot-seats, and interaction. You will meet other like-minded coaches of all levels from Master Christian Life Coaches, to graduate CCLCs and other coaching enthusiasts. A good number of attendees are in related professions or in transition to a career in Christian life coaching.

Informal conversations often lead to the greatest transformations because everyone feels relaxed and willing to receive input from others. You will have the opportunity to dine and meet with believers on a variety of levels. We encourage everyone to be willing to receive input as well as offer it.​

Friday, Sept. 19th – Interactive Presentations / Sessions

Mistress of Ceremonies

Pam Maldonado, MCLC, MEd, Author, Wellness Expert


Debbie Lee Stankovich, MCLC, West Richland, Washington State

Mosaic Coaching: Help for Blended Families​

Inspired by the image of a beautiful mosaic art piece, Debbie created the soon to be released coach training program entitled Mosaic© Family Coaching. Just as no two mosaics are alike, no two Mosaic© families are the same either. Remnants of brokenness in various sizes, textures, shapes, and colors are put together to form a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

Drawing on reliable research, expert opinions, and her own experiences, Debbie challenges stereotypical assumptions and helps coaches become more sensitive to how step relationships impact clients and undermine progress. A 2011 Pew Research report stated that of the 238 million adults in this country, 95.5 million are step parents, step siblings, or step children. Those numbers represent a lot of people who need qualified and well-equipped coaches to help them navigate the complexities of Mosaic© family life.

Debbie earned her B.A. Degree in Social Sciences at Washington State University. Focusing on management, psychology, and human development served her well in a lifelong career in non-profit management and also as the president and founder of Light My Path Ministries. She holds certifications as a Christian Life Coach, Master Christian Life Coach, Joy Restoration and Grief Coach, and Christian Counseling through the Professional Christian Coaching and Counseling Academy (PCCCA). As a former trainer for PCCCA, Debbie has worked with hundreds of individuals pursuing a coaching career. She has conducted numerous peer coach training programs, women’s events, and special activities in church settings. Debbie says, “Witnessing God's children discovering His call on their lives and ministries is an honor beyond expression -- especially when it is the result of diligently seeking His will.”

Dr. Leelo Bush and Rev. Evan Bush ... reprise by popular demand

"Married with Business: How to Work with Your Spouse (Sweetheart) and Thrive, Personally & Professionally"

Evan and Leelo Bush celebrated their 11-year wedding anniversary this summer (June 6th!) and during these years, they have learned to successfully "juggle" their faith, relationship, parenting and business ... in that order!

Each came to the relationship with their own share of baggage, having been married before and having partnered in business with a previous spouse. Suddenly with a blended family and passion to help others be all God has called them to be, they returned to their "marketplace ministry" careers ... serving where God placed them.

In this session Evan and Leelo will help you identify whether working together may work for you and if you are already in this type of partnership, how to creatively collaborate and enhance each others gifts and talents so that the world is blessed, your relationship and business thrives and each of you continue to grow personally in a safe, judgment-free environment. Join us for laughter and the serious side of making this delicate balancing act work.

Evan and Leelo Bush partner in Beautiful Life International, LLC / PCCCA, located in Cape Coral, Florida, with Leelo heading the training and development department and Evan directing the technology and logistics for the organization.

Dr. A.J. Rubano, Chiropractor, Bi-lingual Author, Motivational Speaker                      Ft. Myers, FL

The Science of Persuasion​

Dr. A.J. will help you understand proven ways to increase the likelyhood of getting a "yes" response and show you common mistakes that decrease our success rate.  One such common mistake can occur when responding to a client who thanks you for going out of your way for them.  We often think the ʺhumbleʺ reply of ʺno problem ʺ or ʺI'd do it for anyone ʺ is effective. Dr. A.J. will show you why this is not only ineffective in getting more business or referrals ... but is actually a negative!!

During his career Dr A.J. has worked as a team chiropractor for both college and pro sports. His experience with athletic training, fitness, and cutting edge chiropractic techniques like MUA and spinal decompression have helped him to develop a treatment approach that takes into account the role muscles, nerves, and joints play in causing back and neck pain; as well as related disorders like sciatica.

If your dreams have been choked, you’ve been poisoned by a lack of advancement or the lies of the devil, or bitten by the betrayal of a close friend or relative you will see that the obstacles in your way, though meant for evil, are actually stepping stones to the abundant life as long as you are willing to "shake off the snake", which is Dr. A.J.'s guide for anyone who is suffering from and is ready to overcome the paralyzing effects of fear, anxiety, or frustration.

Dr. A.J. Rubano teaches that no one, no matter what social class or background, is exempt from the attacks that threaten mental stability and can lead to being ineffective in both personal and business relationships; but through understanding of self and the promises in the Word of God anyone can break through to a life without fear.  True life stories, anecdotes, and power scriptures help provide the inspiration and practical applications for living victoriously even in the midst of the enemy’s attacks.​​
