“I’m a coach and podcaster on a mission to help ambitious Asians overcome fear and limitations to grow businesses and create generational wealth without overwhelm and burnout to chart their path towards happiness and success.
I worked in Finance chasing my career goals only to go through multiple burnouts, depression, and anxiety attacks – struggling mentally and emotionally and questioning where I had gone wrong.
But that pain took me on a journey to seek answers, and as I came across solutions, I wondered, “WHY hadn’t school taught us these ideas and principles on happiness and success?”. I felt that school failed to teach us the lessons that we REALLY needed to become happy and successful.
The BIG DREAM is to TRANSFORM EDUCATION to make it more relevant, but I’m starting off with my coaching business by helping ONE person at a time.
And if this doesn’t happen during my lifetime, I’m working to inspire the next generation to make a dent in their own ways.”

Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills

People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.


Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.

It was hell.

After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.

Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
