“I was pointed toward life coaching when I told someone my ideal job would be working as a professional friend.”

Justin emerged from college ready to take on the world. But like so many college students today, he couldn’t find work that aligned with his skills and true desire to help others. He struggled to find a job that took advantage of his degree in communication, fit into the schedule he wanted for life, and wasn’t an unbearable daily grind. Needless to say, finding this combination was a challenge within most corporate settings. He spent months looking and interviewing, only to be discouraged by the limitations of what the job market could provide. That’s when Justin discovered coaching.

“I was pointed toward life coaching when I told someone my ideal job would be working as a professional friend.”

He’d never considered becoming his own boss. But after receiving encouragement from his father (a business owner himself) , Justin began exploring the entrepreneurial path. Coaching has turned out to be his dream-come-true career. It satisfies all of his work-life balance requirements and enables him to do something he genuinely loves.

Like many others who are drawn to the coaching profession, Justin has been “coaching” others for most of his life. Rich in perspective, he was the guy all the girls called their “best friend” in high school and college.  But it wasn’t until he received his coach training that he discovered he could do more than just be a sympathetic ear for friends.

Justin has quickly established himself as a secret weapon for college graduates in their late 20s to early 30s who want to feel more comfortable, confident and at choice in their social lives – especially women who feel they don’t have a voice in important matters.

“I help find a direction where there was none. I help find the words needed for expression. I help find the possibilities that were hidden. Whether it’s finding a way to be able to say “no” to friends, finding comfort with loved ones, or finding new ways to stand out at work.” – Courtesy of justincassens.com

For years, Justin has been the best-kept-secret for those who find themselves in the background and want to be seen, heard and respected for who they are. Now he uses the tools and methodology of coaching to find real solutions to problems, creating a sustainable approach his clients can use to reinforce confidence on their own.

Today Justin works primarily with those who want to improve their understanding of communication and acquire skills to master social settings. He supports people in finding ways to counter negative thoughts, fearlessly self-express, and realize how capable they truly are.

Through in-person and web-based sessions, Justin helps his clients discover how to get the most out of their relationships – including friendships, romantic involvements, and professional contacts – enabling them to enjoy life to the fullest.

“I believe freely sharing appreciation with the people around us will help make the world a better place, and I can’t get enough of people who share that point of view. I can’t imagine anything better than working to help people realize their full potential.” 

In addition to life coaching, Justin also continues to further his education (as a proud member of the lifelong-learner tribe!) with advanced training in website development and marketing through Coach Training World.
