During this homeless time, he made a powerful decision to change his thinking and mindset by launching into life coaching. He developed a niche for resilience and mindset coaching while still homeless. While still homeless, he leveraged local coffee shops to coach his clients.  Some clients affectionately called him “the homeless life coach.” The growth of his business ultimately led to the end of his homelessness.  He is a certified Maxwell Leadership (John C.

Mr. Morales then furthered his skills and found his niche in coaching.  He earned a Master Certified Professional Coach (Life Coaching) from the Certified Life Coach Institute in 2022.  In 2018, Vince became a Certified Coach, Trainer and Speaker, as well as certified in Maxwell DISC Method Behavioral Analysis from Maxwell Leadership.  That same year, he became an Integrative NLP Practitioner from the Empowerment Partnership in 2018.  To continue in his quest of knowledge, Vince earned his Master’s degree from Penn State University in 2021 studying the Psychology of Leadership and is completing his second Master’s degree in Executive Coaching and Consulting from Concordia University-Irvine where he will graduate in 2024.
