You Get One Life, Then You Die.

Why Waste It?

I help driven creators reach their potential and build their businesses and life aligned with their values using evidence-based psychology.

If you want to maximize your potential, do work that resonates with you, and make the most of your most precious resource—time—read on to discover how coaching can help you achieve it.


What Do People Say About Me?

Corey has a way to help you find your unique path, mainly by keeping incredibly cool, and asking the right questions at the right time…he’s like a personal trainer for the mind.
Corey helped me overcome my mental blocks and helped me take action that changed my life trajectory. He's sincere, real and absolutely no bullsit. I'm very grateful to have his support on my creator journey!
Corey’s really good about making sure that the time you spend with him is going to save you 10x the amount of time you’d spend if you did this by yourself.
Your knowledge of psychology really shows and has given me a lot of insight. The way you talk is super conversational and makes me feel like I’m talking to a human, not being lectured to. Thank you for the thoughtfulness you put into your answers. I endorse what you do 100%.
I’ve worked with a handful of “fluffy, feel-good” coaches over the years. Corey’s the exact opposite of that. This was the most direct, no-bullshit coaching I’ve experienced, and I loved it… As someone who over-complicates everything, this was a much-needed shot of clarity and energy…The dude is legit.
It's rare to find someone tough like Corey but also intelligent and caring. He genuinely cares about the outcomes of the folks he coaches and helps. Corey reminds all of us that we get one life. And it's a much more fulfilling life if we can chase our dreams rather than have regrets later.
Corey is a no-nonsense psychologist and coach. He brings a powerful combination of perceptiveness, candor, and expertise to everything he does. If you get the chance to work with Corey in any capacity, do it.

Why Do People Come to Me for Coaching?

  • You’re tired of the status quo and want to carve your own path in life and business.
  • You want to do meaningful, purpose-driven work that fulfills you, but don’t know where to start.
  • You’re a “workaholic” and want to create a better work/life balance, so you can enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to build.
  • Deep down, you know what you want to do with your life or business, but need help developing the courage and accountability to make it a reality.
  • You want to make better decisions that get you closer to a life you enjoy, but nothing you’ve tried has moved the needle.
  • You want clarity on which business to build next, or how to pivot your current business, so you can make an impact doing work that resonates with you.
  • You’re tired of all the productivity “hacks” and want clarity on how to actually move the needle toward doing work that matters.
  • You want a “thought-partner,” a neutral third-party, to help you problem-solve and brainstorm ideas for your business.


What Have My Clients Achieved So Far?

  • Removed themselves as a bottleneck for their company and freed up 15 hours each week. How valuable would an extra 780 hours a year be for you and your business? That’s over a full calendar month’s worth of more time.
  • Crafted an authentic brand narrative to position their company as the go-to authority in their niche.
  • Codified their expertise into an email-based course to help companies optimize their transition to fully-remote.
  • Created a thriving subscription-based membership platform that energizes them and allows them to explore their creativity by helping others become entrepreneurs.
  • Wrote a book to help founders navigate the startup world while prioritizing mental health, and is working on their latest startup focused on optimizing human nutrition to prepare us to be a spacefaring society.
  • Developed the courage to put themselves and their work into the world and overcame limiting beliefs around Imposter Syndrome and realize the value they have to give to the world.


Who Am I?

I’m Dr. Corey Wilks, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Executive Coach with 15 years of experience in evidence-based psychology.

I believe too many people die regretting not having done more with their lives. So I want to help as many creators reaching their potential as I can with the time I have left.

Time is our most precious resource—because it’s the one thing we can never get more of once it’s gone.

Everything I do is about helping creators like you reach their potential by building what I call an Intentional Life—where you do meaningful, purpose-driven work that fulfills you and make the most of the time you have left.

And I believe the path to an Intentional Life is rooted in identifying your Core Value and building your life—and your business—aligned with it.


What Stops People from Building an Intentional Life?

Every client I’ve worked with has struggled with one (or more) of these obstacles:

The Four Horsemen of Fear

We’re afraid of failing. We’re afraid of what other people will say about us. We’re afraid of not having all the answers and not knowing which path is right. And more than anything, deep down, most of us are afraid to succeed. Here’s an article that goes in-depth on each of the Four Horsemen and how to conquer them.

Lack of Clarity

Every decision you make has the potential to get you one step closer to, or one step further away from, an Intentional Life. Most people don’t know what they actually want out of life, or how to build a business that fulfills them. Until you know this, it’s hard to know which decision will take you in the right direction or how to develop a plan to make it a reality.

Lack of Accountability and Support

Having someone to help keep you focused on execution, to offer support and validation, or act as impartial counsel to bounce ideas off and refine your decision-making process are critical to ensuring you get on, and stay on, the right path.


How Can Coaching Help You Reach Your Potential?

Most of what we tackle revolves around helping you develop clarity on what direction to take your life and business, then developing a specific plan to achieve it.

When you’re in charge of your creator business, it’s easy to be unsure which path to take and feel alone blazing your own trail. Either because you’re surrounded by “yes-men,” you have blind spots preventing you from moving forward, or you have limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors holding you back. Each of these prevents you and your creator business from making meaningful progress.

Through coaching, you get blunt, constructive, actionable feedback from a neutral professional to help you work through ideas. Through this thought-partnering, you’ll gain clarity on which decisions best align with your mission.

So you can build a meaningful, purpose-driven business—and life—that fulfills you, and finally reach your potential.

If you want to be more intentional with how you live, make better decisions, and create an impact on the world, coaching can help you build a legacy worth your most precious resource—time.

Because the alternative is to join the 76%.


What’s the Worst That Could Happen?

Imagine: You’re on your deathbed looking back at your life. Yeah, you made a lot of money, but it cost you a lifetime of doing unfulfilling and uninspiring work. Despite all your successes, you feel like your life was always missing something. You regret not pursuing that thing you always wanted to do, but you’re out of time.

You’re on your deathbed staring back at a lifetime of regret.

According to a Cornell University study, 76% of people die with the same regret —they never lived up to their potential because they accepted a mediocre life.

Another scary number?

According to Dr. Abraham Maslow—less than 1% of people ever reach their potential.

So 99% of us never reach our potential or build a meaningful life, and most of us die regretting it.

This doesn’t have to be your future.

My mission is to make sure it isn’t. I’ve watched too many people die with regrets because they didn’t start building their ideal life until it was too late. They spent 40+ years chasing the wrong thing or paralyzed by fear because they convinced themselves freedom and fulfillment were unattainable.

I don’t want you to die with these regrets.

You can live a meaningful life—where you’re free to live each day on your terms and do work that matters.

And coaching can help you make it a reality.


My Coaching Approach

We start by clarifying your Core Value—the fundamental piece that a life well-lived must be built around for you.

Then, we apply the GOLD Framework:

  • We create goals that align with that value, so every goal gets you one step closer to your ideal life.
  • Then we identify obstacles that could prevent you from achieving those goals.
  • Once we know what obstacles to anticipate, we identify what strengths and resources you have at your disposal that you can leverage to overcome any obstacle that comes your way.
  • Finally, with all these pieces in place, we develop a step-by-step action plan to keep you heading in the right direction to build an Intentional Life and reach your creator potential.

The GOLD Framework is deceptively simple but incredibly effective because it’s designed to evolve with you.

As your needs change and life throws new obstacles your way, the GOLD Framework stays flexible so you can change it to fit your current circumstances.

How Can We Work Together?

I’ve found that the longer and more consistently we work together, the more progress you can make.

It takes time to dial in how to reach your potential and build a fulfilling life and business. And to build a deep relationship to maximize your results, I limit how many clients I take on to ensure everyone I work with gets my full attention.

I currently offer very limited 1:1 coaching on a monthly retainer basis:

1-Month Retainer

Investment: $3,500

Total Duration: 1 month (ongoing until canceled)

Sessions: 60 minutes (max 1 per week)

If you choose to do the full amount (weekly sessions), this means you’ll have 4 sessions each month.

By the end of every session, you should walk away with more clarity, a deeper understanding of how to move forward, and exercises to practice between sessions.

If you or your company are interested in longer packages or other formats (group coaching, etc.), just note that in your application.


Not Ready to Invest in 1:1 Coaching?

I distilled the best strategies I use in 1:1 coaching and turned them into a curriculum alongside a highly-engaged, supportive community of high-achieving people dedicated to being more intentional with how they live, work, and create.

Intentional Life Design is a 5-week live cohort-based course designed to help you get hyper-clear on what you want, overcome what’s standing in your way, and make it a reality.

If you want to learn more, and enroll in the next cohort, check out the course page here:



No, but you’re enrolling in 1 (one) month of coaching on an ongoing basis until you cancel in writing.

If you only want to do a session every other week, that’s perfectly fine. But you’ll get the most out of each month if you do weekly coaching.

Great question. I used to, but I discovered it made keeping a low number of clients impossible.

To avoid people drawing out their sessions for months or even years, the best solution I found was to offer packages based on time to ensure I had consistent availability to take on new clients (like you!).

But this expiration actually helps many of my clients stay action-oriented between sessions and maximize each session. Most of us operate better with set deadlines because they focus our attention on consistent execution.

No business operates without set deadlines and clear objectives, why should coaching?

Yes, for the same reasons I just covered. The difference is that most high-level coaches I know don’t offer as much as I do. Most coaches only give you up to a couple 30-45-minute sessions per month.

I offer way more.

Because if you take full advantage and do weekly sessions, you’re getting around 4 hours (240 minutes) of coaching per month with me vs. 60-90 total minutes per month with other coaches.

You’re getting 4x more coaching time with me vs. them.

No. I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Executive Coach. I have a doctorate in clinical psychology and went through specific training and certification in personal and executive coaching to ensure I give my clients the best strategies evidence-based psychology has to offer.

It takes zero qualifications to call yourself a life coach because the coaching industry is unregulated. But I also know some life coaches who have put in the work and gone through rigorous training, and they’re great.

But I am not a life coach.

No. I stopped practicing therapy a while ago. I only offer coaching now.

Yes, depending on what you’re in therapy for.

Many of my clients have been, or are currently, in therapy. As long as whatever you’re going to therapy for doesn’t interfere with what we cover in coaching, it’s perfectly fine.

But again, even though I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I don’t offer therapy and we don’t cover anything that would be considered “clinically significant” or “pathological” to the point it would require therapy.

Coaching is an investment, so choosing someone who can help you maximize the return on your investment is critical.

I can’t speak to how other coaches operate, but my clients consistently achieve powerful results in a short period of time because of something I bring to the table that 99.9% of coaches can’t—expertise as a doctoral-level psychologist with over 15 years of experience in evidence-based psychology.

You could not do coaching and stay on your current trajectory. But if you keep doing what you’ve been doing for the next 3 months, how much progress will you make?

The people I work with learn how to remove themselves as the bottleneck in their business, hone their decision-making skills, develop the courage to take meaningful action, overcome limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors, and dig deep to gain clarity on what they ultimately want to achieve.

They’ve saved hundreds of hours.

They’ve generated hundreds of thousands extra in revenue.

They’re kicking ass more and more every day.

Where do you want to be in 3 months?

If you aren’t ready or able to invest in 1:1 coaching, check out Intentional Life Design. It’s a cohort-based course based on the same strategies I use in 1:1 coaching at a more affordable price, plus you get the added benefit of having a community to support you on your journey.
