Meet the Instructors
About the Instructor
Joeel and Natalie Rivera are a dynamic duo, as a husband-and-wife team, partners in crime, and BFFs! They are freedom junkies and prolific content creators who have been coaching, speaking, writing, and teaching for more than a decade.
Joeel is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Education and is currently completing his dissertation on eudaemonic happiness for his Ph.D. in Psychology. Using the science of psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs, leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their mind and create their destiny.
Joeel & Natalie have started more than a dozen businesses, including (in chronological order) imports, photography, non-profit teen center, life coaching, t-shirts, magazine, book publishing, professional speaking, conferences and workshops, holistic virtual office center, online directory, life coach training, online course publishing AND MORE!
They’ve taken what they’ve learned through their successes and (most importantly) failures, and today they run a powerhouse education and publishing company.
JOEEL’S BEGINNINGS: From an early age, Joeel faced adversity, including failing his first year of college and losing his brother to a car accident at the age of 19. This experience transformed his life and instilled a deep sense of purpose by inspiring him to give his brother Daniel’s name a meaning by helping others find their true path.
In 2009, he fulfilled his dream of opening a youth center in honor of his brother. Shortly thereafter, life called him a different direction and Natalie answered a Craigslist ad and took over his position of co-founder of this business.
NATALIE’S BEGINNINGS: After a decade of living a life that wasn’t authentically hers, and developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as a result, Natalie let go of everything and completely transformed. Through her journey to healing, she rediscovered her true self and greater purpose—to be an entrepreneur and inspire others to transform their lives. Natalie “retired” from the rat race at 24, put herself through school as a freelance designer. Days before graduating college (finally) she answered an ad for a business partner running a non-profit teen center.
JOINING FORCES: While Joeel & Natalie met for only 30 minutes during this transition of ownership, two years later they reconnected and recognized how synchronistically the stars had aligned to bring them together. They joke of the irony of how they “starting the same business, just not at the same time” and they’ve been co-creating in life and business ever since.
JOINING THE INFORMATION AGE: Joeel & Natalie joined the information age and became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they went “green” and transitioned their print magazine into digital format. They found they could reach an exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost—and they were hooked! They closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person workshops and training programs into information products and online courses.
THE NIGHTMARE/BLESSING: Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go “all-in” to the online world when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Natalie became his full-time caretaker and their businesses crumbled down around them. They decided they never wanted to be in that situation again, so they dedicated themselves to converting their training, coaching and speaking programs into online courses that would outlive them. Their new business model is based on investing in “the new real estate”, which is creating passive income through building a portfolio of educational content.
Today they have 150,000+ students from 195 countries. They are passionate about sharing their story and inspiring entrepreneurs to monetize their passion and knowledge in this new digital education economy.

So, why offer life purpose workshops?
Workshops are a great way to reach more people, establish yourself as an expert, and generate revenue!
And why the life purpose topic?
We live in a time in which we have more opportunity than ever before to access resources, learn anything we want, do what we love and follow our passion.
We also live in a time of unprecedented change—and change is scary for most people. It challenges our worldviews, makes us question our assumptions about what’s possible, and sometimes thrusts us into challenges that disrupt our lives.
And the result is that more and more people are finding themselves asking life’s biggest question:
Why are we here?
What is the meaning of life?
What is my life purpose?
People from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, religious, and life experiences are waking up to the awareness that...
LIFE IS MEANT TO BE MORE.
They know they are not fulfilling their potential. They seek to live a life of more meaning. They feel compelled to give their pain a purpose and use it to make a difference. But, they hold themselves back because they tend to tell themselves stories of why they can’t do what they want, stories of the bad things that happened to them, and stories of the way they are “supposed” to live, rather than tell the story of their potential, the gifts they’ve been given, and the dreams in their heart.
And as a Life Purpose Quest Workshop Facilitator, you will have the tools to guide them on a journey into themselves to reveal the gifts they have to give to this world and rewrite their life’s story.
The Purpose Quest process will take them through the 6 Stepping Stones of Life Purpose:
They’ll explore their CHILDHOOD INFLUENCES to identify where they learned to play the roles they act out on the stage of life.
They’ll look at their PERSONALITY TRAITS for clues of who they’re meant to be in this world.
They’ll embrace their PASSIONS and develop the interests they never allowed themselves to explore.
They’ll identify their natural TALENTS and the skills they’ve developed that will serve them along their journey.
They’ll look back at the meaningful and life changing experiences along their LIFE PATH to see where the trajectory of their life has been taking them.
And finally, they’ll banish any limiting BELIEFS that are holding them back from their potential.
By the end of the workshop, the participants will put the 6 stepping stones of purpose together like puzzle pieces that reveal the big picture of their life’s greater purpose.
We have been guiding people on a journey to discover their life purpose for over a decade and we’ve trained thousands of life coaches how to use our processes to help their clients live a life of meaning and reach their potential. And now we have compiled all of our best life coaching tools and workshop activities into a blueprint you can use to run your own life purpose workshops, whether you use our powerful Purpose Quest process or customize it to meet your needs.
