Hi! I’m Travis Barton,
I’m an expert at taking people who want to be extraordinary to epic new heights.
Life coaching was always a very clear decision for me. Just like I learned myself, everything you want lies within you, it’s just a practice of uncovering what that is and courageously moving into it. Guiding others to realize their dreams, to show up powerfully in the world as their highest self, and to realize their long-abandoned goals, live happier, more fulfilled lives of purpose and passion has long been a deep fire within me for as long as I can remember. I always relished in having powerful conversations with people. You know, those life changing conversations that you never forget for the rest of your life? The kind that alters the course of your life? I've spent many long nights camping under the stars next to a warm fire having these kinds of "coaching" conversations even before I ever knew what coaching was! Growing up, I've always had an absolute lust for an extraordinary life and all it had to offer. A new day was always looked at as a gift and, even as a young boy, I relished them. I never wanted to just survive a life, I wanted to really live a life.
Today, I still have that attitude of exploration, excitement and adventure for living.
Outside of coaching, I take pride in not just talking the talk, but in living by example. I remind myself often that it's not that life it too short, it's that most of us wait to long to truly start living. That reminder is what puts fire in my heart to go out and really live a life, not just exist.
When Im not coaching or speaking you can usually find me engaged in any of my many passions like;
- Hiking & Camping
- Working out (either in the weight room, primal movement, or with gymnastic rings)
- Reading (I love Tao and Stoic philosophy, but a good adventure novel is a not so guilty pleasure of mine!)
- Playing Music (I play Didgeridoo, Irish Tin Whistle & the Bass)
- Lucid Dreaming
- Laughing 'til my sides hurt
I have personally worked with a variety of people one on one, from executives and CEO's, to athletes and actors, to other coaches and entrepreneurs. I support people in a powerful space to move passionately toward their dreams and goals. I create space for magic to happen.
Onward and Upward,
FEEL THE LOVE.
"Upon our discovery call, it was an innate conversation that felt like an instant connection. I went with my gut, told you my aspirations, dreams, fears, and most importantly my goals. With your strategies, you elevated me to a different level of life that I was only dreaming of in the past. Now, I'm currently living it.
Without your push to break my fears, leaving a job that just got me by, and the help of my best friend this dream is becoming a reality. On top of that, you got to see me at my lowest as my grandpa passed away the day I met you. Not only that, but also seeing me break my biggest fear with a needed "finger" to a place that caused me a lot of pain inside as I was maturing into the man I was meant to be. Honestly, it was like you were my angel my grandpa gave me that day. We eventually met with my best friend who has kept me going for the past six months as my income as been very low. However, time and work ethic can make anything possible as my dream is still in progress."

"I reached out to Travis for insight at a transition point in my life when I felt totally lost. With one response, he helped me to find hope when I felt depleted of it, and shift my perspective. To understand that the space I was in was a huge blessing, and that because I was lost, I was also free. That I truly had nothing holding me back but myself. I had the power to change my life and the space I was in was a gift. It was a liberating interaction. I was motivated and inspired.
I felt a connection to Travis and somehow knew that as a dreamer and a wisher who wasn’t sure how to embrace my freedom or establish a concrete vision for myself, that I very much needed someone like Travis at this particular point in my life to help propel me forward. I haven’t a doubt that on our journeys we are gifted with people who lift us up, carry us, encourage us, support us, and hold us accountable. Travis has been that remarkable person for me and I am beyond grateful for his service, his passion, and the heart and soul he invests into helping others become the best version of themselves. He has helped me lay the foundation to make my dreams to travel and obtain my yoga certification a reality.
To find clarity and purpose. To take risks that serve my growth. To open my heart. To heal. Expose my soul to the world. To develop confidence and self-love. To be the most authentic version of myself and own my path. Honour it. To travel within and embrace my passions to travel abroad and to continue to do so. I received my 200 HR yoga certification in Bali in October 2015 and it was a much needed, life changing trip. I wouldn’t have grown as much as I have without the support and guidance of Travis. Travis helps you to uncover your gifts, embrace them, and become the best version of yourself. I’ll forever be grateful for him."

"A theoretician Travis Barton is not. This man lives his beliefs. Sure he has the terminology, the conveniently organized life coach layout and condensation of: “the guidelines to manifest your desires and create the life you’ve always dreamed, etc.” but he does not just sit and preach from a world of books and words, Travis Barton lives it, and believe you me, his words are infused with life.
One may be reminded of Hemingway or the like when around Travis’ energy; that is, a man who declares his life solely his and all the world his Beloved playground to explore. It could be said of Travis that he is a romantic, living outside of the stifling boxes of society, and ever affirming the limitless possibilities we all knew as children with the bold, haughty, fortitude of a man alive and well.
Who gets on a plane by themselves, journeys hours and hours to a remote country that they’ve never been to before, arrives in the mysterious country only to be shrouded inside of total darkness for days (Iceland during winter), all for the sole (soul?) purpose of fulfilling a wonderstruck childhood dream of seeing the Northern Lights? Travis Barton does. Travis Barton did.
This story is one of many similar stories from Travis’ novel-worthy life. So to you out there searching for inspiration and change in your life, I leave you with this: You become what you eat, that is, what you surround yourself with. Mark Twain said “Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.” Bring Travis Barton into your life, and simply absorb his energy--- yes, with theories and life coach bullet points in their rightful place, but simply absorb the romance, the boldness, and the red-hot iron enthusiasm that Travis Barton embodies and moves by and you will be changed for the better."

"Travis Barton - Life coach, mentor, brother. I found Travis at a time when I thought I had it all figured out, but within the first month or so of our time together my life was falling apart. He helped pick me up, dusted me off, and showed me a life of purpose and value that I'd always known I was capable of but had no idea how to tangibly grasp. Not only is his coaching powerful, it changes lives. He's never afraid to call you out on your bullshit and hold you to your highest self, yet he does it in such a playful and kind way that you just laugh and pick up where you left off. If you've got the adventure, vulnerability, drive, passion, and the playfulness to work with Travis - DO IT. He's such a damned good coach and friend to have in your life."

"Travis is not your ordinary coach, He is completely congruent with what he teaches, He walks everything he talks. I came to Travis to learn how to be a life coach and within my first 3 months of working together I had signed 3 clients! I feel as if I’ve grown so much not just as a coach but as a person and would not have achieved what I have today without Travis. He has shown me that we can truly live a life of meaning doing what we love!"
- Josh Hale
“Travis Barton, quite literally, changes lives. He certainly changed mine. A lot of good people will come into your life but only a handful will make a significant positive difference to it. Travis is one of them. His coaching style is effortless but impactful; without ever feeling stressful. There’s a saying that "when the student is ready the teacher will appear”. If you’re reading this, then your teacher has appeared and his name is Travis.”
- Sarah Blake
"What struck me the most, while working with Travis, was how his coaching guidance and advices were directly applicable and had immediate results in my life. I’m not talking about “theories” but about tangible and practical ways, which made me realize that life is an endless field of possibilities and if I wanted to achieve everything I’ve ever dreamed of - it was up to me and only! This is the magic of life and this is definitely the magic of Travis; makes you realize, in the most inspiring way, what you already knew deep inside and helps you get there, step by step!"
