About Charlie Wan

Director / Composer / Life Coach

For a big part of my career, I have been working in the world of fashion and beauty industries. It’s been a fascinating journey living in the heart of New York City traveling between the backstages of fashion weeks and directing films & stages for luxury brands. Between my lives as a creative director, photographer, and composer, there’s never a dull moment in my life.

In 2016, I lost my father to cancer. He took his very last breath in my arms. This experience shook the core of my existence. What’s truly matter in life? What could I do to carry on his legacy of helping others? What could I do with all my creative skills? I reflected and contemplated. I decided to dedicate every ounce of my energy to do something good for others. I have become a certified life coach to serve others to define their new mission of life.

I have spent over three decades to proactively seeking answers about this age-old question of “the meaning of life”. Throughout my own vision quest, I have discovered some life lessons and exercises that are very useful and practical than others. I have seen friends become transformation seminars and practices junkies. However, their lives don’t seem to advance too far. The same issues are still haunting them. They snap back into their older self too soon too quickly. I believe it’s more important to go back to the basic and ground zero to build strong foundations. Change the simple way of being.

“If you can’t explain it to a six-year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.” – Albert Einstein

I have this obsession to systematically simplifying the most elusive questions on the clarity of life. I have created a mission coaching pathway to help founders, entrepreneurs, and visionaries in refining their new level of mission and purpose. I believe once you put in the “address” in your life GPS, your journey will be more enjoyable and decisive!

Are you feeling burned out with life? Are you in need a whole new perspective and clarity on your next endeavor and initiative? Perhaps I can help you.

Let’s unravel your new mission and true calling!
