Steve Schleupner

Life Coach


Stowe, VT


Shortly after moving my family from MD to VT, my 20-year marriage ended abruptly, but not unexpectedly. It gutted me open, and brought to surface a slew of emotions and challenges - most of which I had no idea how to handle. I felt hurt, angry, sad, and scared. How was I going to get through this? What about my kids, our future...? I felt like I worked hard to follow the "How to be a Good Father, Partner and Provider Handbook", but it wasn't good enough. I began to lose touch with who I thought I was. Unbeknownst to me, therein lied my recovery work. I decided to focus on my healing, and stepped back from my work as a Financial Advisor for about 18 months. I tended bar (a bucket list dream) and picked up consulting jobs on the side. The goal was to make enough money to live, and to have enough time to heal. I began the difficult healing process. I found mentors, studied philosophy, read about Buddhists views on suffering, hired a coach, and practiced various tools to help me through my days. I even began writing poetry. During this time, I discovered that I really enjoy coaching, and that divorce has shaped much of who I am since I was about 10 years old.   I realized my intention of having a positive impact on others was falling short to the degree it could have, if I continued a sole focus on financial planning.  I still work as a financial planner, but the work expands to help men find other forms of divorce prosperity – joy, health, time, energy, and spirit - as they learn to embrace the difficult transition with divorce, and reclaim their transitioned wealth. If you would like to have a better understanding of the type of work I do, I invite you to listen to “A Man’s Journey Through Divorce” podcast.
