WHO AM I?
Hello, my name is Chad McMillan, and I am an awoken conscious spirit with nearly four decades of direct, trailblazing, and high stakes life and business experience that I now grateful share with the world. Humbly stated, in my life I have survived gunpoint, a hostage taking, several medical emergencies, far off and sometimes perilous adventures, as well as a natural disaster, to name a few. Corporately, starting back as an inexperienced office administrator nearly 20 years ago, I grew through both formal and street level education into a hungry and inspired c-suite executive, where I have since spearheaded and participated in the turnaround of multiple start-up public companies from nearly every capacity, including executive management, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, digital marketing, corporate communications, investor relations, and new media production. I have led and assisted a number of multi-million dollar financings, merger, acquisition and joint venture transactions, and in my greatest successes twice led 2 different public company turnarounds, helping them grow from less than a $1 million dollar valuation to each over a $25 million dollar valuation based on legitimate fundamentals.
All of this said, several years ago during my solo business travels I began to feel a call to explore deeper into my passions, my life path and purpose, where I subsequently spent over 15 months working directly with a practicing shaman, who helped guide me in removing my own personal and inner blockages, exploring my own inner compass, intuition, and life path and finding the courage to follow my heart.
Feeling deeply into what many would describe as a growing kundalini awakening, I intuitively started transforming my entire lifestyle, and my world began to change; I quit drinking, improved my diet, purged the elements of my life that didn't feel right, and embraced a deeply heart felt and intuitively guided path to realize, become, and grow further into my ultimate life purpose.
Embracing this inspiration, I spontaneously left the life I knew behind, packed my bags, and embarked on a solo pilgrimage from the westcoast of Canada, that ultimately took me as far south as northern Panama, traversed one day at a time for over a year, all by land.
On my quest I camped under the stars in the great outdoors, rode a bike across southern California, drove the Baja (and got stuck in the desert), rode out the direct hit and subsequent aftermath of a major hurricane, meditated on ancient pyramids, connected with diverse and local cultures and people, and explored deep into and through many of my own perceived fears and limitations.
Today, while working remotely and able to move about freely in every respect as I so desire, I believe I have found a great balance between the perceived poles of these free spirited and corporate worlds and lifestyles. As such, I now offer my experience and expertise to inspired spirits, teams, projects, and companies, that are seeking a touch of deeper magic, all the while honouring my own greatest creative draws to express myself through my adventures, startup projects, and the performing arts; 1 part conscious business and lifestyle guide and mentor, 1 part new impact company builder, and 1 part creative artist, fuzing them all together as I enjoy my life experience and seek to effect a continuing and sustainable positive impact in and on our world..
