You have a longing for something, a restlessness, but you may not be sure exactly what you’re looking for.

You just know you want a better life, a more exciting life, a passionate life.

But you also want something more than that — you want a life of purpose and meaning. You want to know that your passion matters.

My work here is to show you exactly how find what makes you come alive and how to create actions to bring it to life in a practical way that balances with your lifestyle.

Will it involve a total overhaul of your life? Not necessarily.

Even small changes toward what you love will make a huge impact on your happiness and fulfillment.

I’m not offering magical attraction or impossible change.

I’m offering real, practical, actionable strategies for moving from where you are now to where you want to be – a happier, more purposeful, more passionate life.

What People Are Saying About Barrie

Barrie Davenport

Leo Babauta, Zen Habits, TIME Magazine Top 25 Blogger

Barrie has the unique ability to hone right in on an issue and work with you to allow you to come to a realization of your own, which is so much more powerful than someone else telling you what your real issues are. Nurturing, caring and encouraging are qualities not every coach possess, but Barrie has them in abundance.

Steve Aitchison, Change Your Thoughts

Barrie is truly a gem. She possesses a wealth of knowledge, experience and practical wisdom, and added to that, she has a wicked sense of humor, a love of life and a generous soul. Writer, friend, coach, mentor or partner, whatever her role, Barrie openly and willingly shares her greatest gift — the ability to help you lead a better, more soulful life.

Katie Tallo, author, director

I truly want to express my gratitude for being so generous in your reaching out to so many people like me seeking to find meaning in life. You are amazing as I find you tuning in to yourself to inspire our souls. I am glad you are taking your vision forward beyond fears and anxiety. You seem to understand our needs.

Sophia, subscriber

I really admire you for wanting to help other people find a work they love. Passion is what makes our lives meaningful. Unfortunately, most of the people I know literally hate their jobs and work to live instead of live to work (on their passion). I’m sure you will improve the quality of many lives.

Meet Barrie

Barrie Davenport is the founder of BarrieDavenport.com and creator of the top-ranked personal development blog, Live Bold and Bloom. She is a certified life passion coach, helping others find and live their inner passions in a way that creates a fuller, happier, and more purpose-filled life.

Barrie spent over 20 years as a successful public relations executive, helping her clients realize their own passions by positioning them for success. She served as marketing and PR director for a network of career colleges, supporting students as they pursued their own career passions.

For many years, her focus was on helping others reach their dreams and fulfill their personal callings.

Over time, Barrie realized she wasn’t 100% fulfilled with her own career. After years of feeling stuck, she took a leap of faith and left her successful PR career in order to begin a process of self-discovery for her true calling. At the time, she thought she was merely on a personal search. But over the decades of helping other people with their dreams, she had been unknowingly honing an incredibly powerful skill–how to uncover passion and bring it to life.

BarrieDavenport.com teaches the same strategies she learned through her personal journey and her coaching practice. It is the same formula she has taught thousands of clients and readers who are now living lives of passion and purpose.

Barrie lives in Asheville, NC, and has three nearly-grown children.
