Hi There!

We are Gay Hendricks & Mike Koenigs,
the hosts & creators of The Big Leap!

We are SO EXCITED to introduce the Big Leap Podcast!

Why did Gay and Mike decide to start this podcast and what is the history of “The Big Leap”?

The history comes from Gay’s 30 years of working with all sorts of different clients, starting with juvenile delinquents and working his way all the way up to coaching high powered, influential people.

Over the past 20 years, he figured out what REALLY turns him on (after, of course, using his own principals on himself to create his own sense of fulfillment AND accomplishing his five big dreams).

So, what is it that really turns him on? Helping other people make their dreams come true.

The Big Leap is about two main things. 1) The upper limit, which is our tendency to run against a self-imposed glass ceiling. How much we can accomplish or achieve. How much love and abundance we can receive, etc., and 2) Discovering your genius.

When Gay was around 30 years old, he realized he didn’t really have a purpose in life, so he sat on the floor of his apartment in Colorado and asked himself “What is my true purpose? What's the purpose of my life?”

He finally came up with this idea that the purpose of your life is to refine doing what you love to do. That became the driving purpose of his life and he’s basically spent every day of his life since then doing versions of that organizing principle.
