Kyle Depiesse is an experience creator and community builder from a small town in Wisconsin who created The Reaching Beyond Experience. After 13 years of experience in the corporate world, he decided he needed a change to find balance between work and life.
Everything changed for Kyle when he was a high school teacher in 2015 teaching personal finance. Although everything seemed normal, he was living paycheck to paycheck and realized he was getting nowhere.
That information changed everything for Kyle and his wife. Three years after their epiphany, they had managed to pay off everything including the mortgage on their home. This was all possible because Kyle dropped his ego, took radical responsibility and started doing personal finances differently.
During that time, Kyle spent more time at home with his family and he finished his first Ironman race. All of this motivated him to start a business as a consultant and coach to help people become debt-free too.
Kyle’s money coaching programs are based on reducing debt by using specific actions to lower expenses and get them under control. However, Kyle sees this as only half of the equation: there is more to do than just play defense because focusing on cutting expenses can create a scarcity mentality around money.
Men’s Mastermind is a program made up of bucket-list experiences designed to re-balance the scales between work and life. This is based precisely on the belief that work may tend to overtake life.
Kyle believes that creativity and innovation come from experience. We learn by doing, not by seeing or listening to someone else. This is something Kyle takes into account for his personal finance and Men’s Mastermind programs.
To achieve this and actually do things differently, mindset is crucial. Whether a business venture is successful or not will depend greatly on the person’s mindset and preparation. Kyle also incorporates this into his programs.
Something that differentiates Kyle from other personal finance coaches is that he works on building communities and teaches not based on books, but based on his own experience with success and failure.
Previously, Kyle used to see success as defined by the amount of money a person can have in their bank, or the house they have. But after a long journey, Kyle now believes that success is actually related to the ability of people to use their talents and experiences to make an impact on as many people as possible.
This, and many other things are topics Kyle talks about in his podcast Reaching Beyond, which he hopes to continue to grow along with his coaching programs.
