Hello. Thanks for reaching out. I get more email than I can deal with, so the form below will help me get back to you. If you're interested in my coaching services, please request a conversation at


I get these questions a lot. Is yours among them?

Well, I'm honored by your interest! I work with senior executives, rising stars, individual performers who are transitioning to leadership roles, and startup founders. I'm quite picky about my clients - I work with people who are committed not just to personal success, but having an outsized positive impact on their world. If you'd like to see if we're a good fit for working together, you can book a 30-minute enrollment interview at . The fee is $25, to discourage tire kickers. It's refundable if either of us decides not to move forward.

I'm the wrong person to ask. Without access to your full health history, it would be irresponsible of me to diagnose, prescribe, or even advise.

Thanks for writing - I appreciate your desire to impart valuable information to my audience. Please do your homework, and listen to at least 3 recent episodes, and read some of my blog posts and articles. Then let me know how your experiences and expertise can help my plant-based listeners lead healthier lives. Point me to a short video or audio where you shined, so I can get a sense of who you are and how you present yourself. If you're selling pills or powders, or advocating that we eat foods of animal origin, or recommending unproven therapies, I'm not interested. I will respond if I think you'll be a good fit. Thanks Howie

My dance card is quite full these days, so I probably won't have the bandwidth to help you personally for a few months. The best way to get on my waiting list is to request an enrollment interview at In the meantime, you can download Sick to Fit for free at and join the Sick to Fit Facebook group.

Thanks, that's so sweet of you! I don't accept advertising of any kind. If you'd like to support the podcast as a Patron, you can do so at I'll mention your name and business at the end of some episodes to show my gratitude.

Please let me know specifically what rubbed you the wrong way, and if it's a factual issue, please provide evidence that I got it wrong. If it's a philosophical issue, we may have to agree to disagree. If you'd like to change my mind, please be kind and respectful.

I love to share my work, expertise, and perspectives. If it's a local event (ie the Triangle of North Carolina), I would be happy to oblige if it fits in my calendar. For a podcast interview, let me know the details: Topic. Size and nature of audience. Why you think I would be a good fit. Anything else I should know before committing. For events that require travel, I need to be paid for the time I'm out of the office, as well as travel expenses. Please let me know your budget and the nature of the event, so we can explore together whether I'm your man.
