Guest Bio

Justin Lukasavige coaches people to do business better by using the power of their personal stories. Justin graduated from college with a degree in aviation and immediately became a commercial pilot. Knowing it wasn’t the story he wanted to live, he began coaching people to get out of debt. He grew his business so quickly (with the help of coaches and mentors) that other business owners took notice and asked for advice on doing the same. Justin is currently working with a handful of startups and non-profits in marketing and product.

More about Justin from his bio at Lukas Coaching (http://lukascoaching.com/about_us.htm)

  • I considered hiring someone to write this for me to make it sound good but that’s not what I’m about. I’m just like you and I like to do business with real people.
  • I don’t have a background involving classes that culminate in a degree that I use every day. I studied commercial aviation in college and immediately became an instructor and then an airline pilot.
  • I agree, that’s not really useful to you, is it?
  • I spent over seven years flying passengers around the US, Canada and the Caribbean before turning what I was really excited about (helping you!) into a business that would support my family. I had no clue what a coach was, but I knew that my job as an airline captain wasn’t how I wanted to help people.
  • I trained with Dave Ramsey and his team early in 2006 and immediately launched Lukas Coaching. I had very little business experience but there was no way I was going to let that stand in the way of helping people.
  • Lukas Coaching plateaued in growth 12 months after launching it and, after trying a few things, still couldn’t figure out how to make it grow enough to replace my income at the airline. It would have been a shame if I couldn’t make it work back then because hundreds of people wouldn’t have been able to benefit. But I hired coaches, took classes, read books…and I made it work.
  • I grew so rapidly that other businesses asked me how they could do it too. Thus began my work helping people start and grow a business they really cared about. Some of them have gone on to impact the world.
  • Now I spend my time doing what I love. I create audio and video for our community. I speak around the world, remotely and in person, and I’ve worked with clients around the globe .
  • Above all else I’m a husband to Christine and a dad to Ava, Amanda and Brie. They’re why I do what I do and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
