Breck has an innate talent for excavating the truth in a person's life, flipping it like a pancake, then serving up radical shifts in perspective and life. His profound instinct has garnered him the status as L.A.’s most renowned private coach for an international clientele of discerning, high-performing individuals. He has transformed the lives of professional athletes, CEO’s, studio heads, music executives, and many prominent actors; has lead innovative workshops with everyone from NASA to famous rock bands.
Breck’s work centers around alchemizing defects, original wounds, and blind spots into assets and advantages for a thriving, generative life. He calls it living in Freedom; that creative childlike, fresh-eyed state of enthusiasm for all aspects of life. His style is both direct and compassionate, allowing people to dismantle their fantasies so they can develop a genuine sense of what is (and isn’t) possible. His workshops, booked months in advance, are deep dives into such topics as The Calling (uncovering true purpose), Identity Hacking (pivoting the relationship to the self), private couples Refresh and Reimagine Retreats, and his signature Freedom Series that is the foundation of his work. In addition to his private practice and intimate workshops, he speaks at many organizations, leads collaborative sessions with executive teams and has a highly anticipated podcast called Uncommon Sense forthcoming. He is a scribe and co-founder of several businesses, including the popular brand Smartypants and a new modern athleisure men’s line, Basalt.
Breck has over thirty years of experience in the field of progressive personal work, leading international workshops several thousand strong, to intimate five-person sessions. His work is deeply rooted in his own experience; a wild and prominent upbringing with side-serving of dysfunction, his own divorces, the loss of two brothers, both parents and his own near-fatal heart attack. He currently has a grown daughter, is raising two young children and has been married now for over twenty years to his wife, muse, and teacher. His personal mistakes, challenges, and losses serve as a portal allowing him direct insight and compassion into his client’s struggles and joys. Breck Costin’s work speaks for itself, judging by the tremendous praise from clients past and present, it is nothing short of life changing.
Choose your best friend. This cannot be overemphasized. Chemistry is wonderful, and should be the initiating factor, but it’s the person you want to stay on the phone with all night that you want long-term.
Pick someone who has the same issue as you, and the conversation sounds like this: “We’re going to run out of money,” one says. “I know we’re going to starve,” the other replies. Try to pick someone who doesn’t have the same issue as you, so the conversation sounds like this: “We’re going to run out of money,” one says. “We’re going to be OK; we’ll figure it out.”
