ABOUT JOSHUA PEREZ
Joshua Perez is a nationally certified life and relationship coach, entrepreneur, consultant, author, and speaker based in Atlanta, Georgia. He is a pastor at heart, and a proud father of two beautiful kids. His intention is to serve the world by raising the consciousness of the planet, and to have a lot of fun along the way.
Since 2002 he's worked with thousands of people to create more of what they want in their lives, their relationships, and in their world. His personal philosophies were forged through decades of overcoming struggles, building resilience, and seeking ever-increasing light in his life.
He was raised in an unstable home, and by middle school life had become so traumatic that he called the local department of children’s services office and asked to be taken from his mother. He bounced from foster home to foster home, and from group home to group home, experiencing repeated abandonment and neglect.
Then, as a young closeted gay man in the Christianity-steeped south, he admits he allowed the pressures of his environment to persuade him into marriage with a woman. He spent a decade serving in the Church, married a beautiful woman, and had two children.
But something was missing in his life: him.
"I knew that if I wanted to live a different life, now was the time to start."
The moment everything began to change was in 2011 when his mother was very sick and was hospitalized.
"I went to see her and she was apologizing frantically for several things we had already dealt with. I realized she felt she was at the end of her life, and had so many regrets, and thought there was nothing she could do about it. It taught me that I wasn’t okay with being at the end of my life, dying with a long list of regrets."
Joshua is not currently accepting new coaching clients. Check out his first book, Satisfy Your Soul, for a guide on how to stop running after your dreams and start actually living them.
