My personal mission is to create and foster deep relationships, to inspire and influence, and to leave a legacy of positive impact and added value to every person I meet.
My coaching journey began when I started writing a blog in 2013 about my journey with our oldest daughter Mikayla. She was born with a rare congenital brain malformation called Dandy Walker Syndrome and has significant special needs. Mikayla was my first coach, and her life continues to teach me important lessons. People resonated with my blogs and perspective, and they began asking me to coach them to have similar perspective for their own life. I discovered my life’s purpose in coaching and I began reading, studying, and attending the Professional Christian Coaching Institute to learn more about the craft and business of coaching, and to work to become certified with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This is a lifetime pursuit for me.
My wife Heather works at Dave Ramsey’s company as a Project Manager in Live Events. We live in Nashville, Tennessee with our 3 children (Mikayla, Ainsley & Hailey (twin girls)) and 2 female dogs (Miley & Sage). Yes, I am surrounded by women!
I am here to serve you and would be honored to work with you.

Chestnut Tree Logo Symbolism
The Chestnut Tree is an important symbol in my life. My grandfather Kenneth William Honeycutt, Sr. planted a chestnut tree on his property in Burnsville, North Carolina, for both my sister and me when we were born. As we grew up, so did the chestnut trees. This piece of art was a wedding present given to me by my mother during our wedding reception. It is an art rendition of a poem I wrote in sixth grade about the chestnut tree. The artist who composed this piece was my former neighbor in high school, Amy O’Brien, and I used to babysit her four boys often. This piece hangs in my living room and I see it every day I sit down to breakfast and during my quiet times. The chestnut tree symbolizes success in hard times, and this is a perfect symbol for my business and life as I partner with people to overcome their greatest challenges. Here are the words to the poem I wrote in sixth grade entitled The Chestnut Tree:
I play in my Grandad’s Lawn
On the long stretch of land
There are mountains as high as you can see
Tonight there will be chestnuts to roast over the crackling fire
The day I was born, Grandad planted my own Chestnut Tree
Right now I see the leaves falling In all different colors
I climb up my Chestnut Tree
I look at the mountains as high as they are
I can imagine being up on the top
I look at Claire’s tree I think about how tall it is compared to mine
I know someday it will be as tall as hers
This Chestnut Tree is a symbol of my Grandad’s love for me
