Meet Abraham Heisler of Heisler Coaching in Tarzana

Today we’d like to introduce you to Abraham Heisler.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Abraham. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
In 1999, I learned meditation and threw myself deep into the midst of studying the mind/body connection. For many years I lived with monks and considered dedicating my life to being a renunciate as well. Instead, I decided to pursue film and became a writer/director creating small film projects, one of which went on to win an Emmy. I also taught film in over ten countries around the world.

I always knew I wanted to help people achieve their highest potential and since 2014 have dived deep into ontological coaching, neuro-linguistic programming, gestalt therapy, group facilitation, and the study of marketing, sales and business.

In 2017, I launched my coaching business, which I built to 6-figures within my first year. Since then, I’ve coached hundreds of entrepreneurs on the mindset and performance strategies to help them tap their inner clarity and confidence to increase their income and profit.

I now run a Business Accelerator for Coaches and coach small business owners on mindset and daily routines. One of the most powerful tools I use to work with my clients is the practice of breathwork – an active breathing technique that creates a flow state and removes mental and emotional blockages to success within a matter of minutes. I’ve led these breathing techniques live for hundreds of entrepreneurs, many who have had transformational breakthrough experiences.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Oof! Money.

Prior to launching my coaching business I was sleeping on the floor and living with monks. My salary was around $30,000 a year. Once I launched my business I tripled my income and was encouraged to live a larger life. I moved into a house that was $6500 a month, I leased a Tesla and vacationed in Turks and Caicos.

At first, I believed that if I portrayed success outwardly, then it would create the appropriate financial result. I did not.

In fact, my business began to dry up and I was forced to move out of my house.

I experienced a lot of shame, doubt and confusion.

At the same time, I was beginning my relationship to my now wife who is from a completely different culture and there was a lot of personal growth that was required.

In the end, we downsized, I studied hard to see where I was lacking in my skills and mindset and developed a much more firm foundation for myself and my business.

It’s always a work in progress, but I have a much more balanced approach to business that is grounded in systems and concrete strategies rather than solely on faith.

Heisler Coaching – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m a Mindset and Performance Coach who helps business professionals remove the mental and emotional blocks to increasing their impact and income.

Influences on my work include ontological coaching, neuro-linguistic programming, gestalt therapy, group facilitation, co-active coaching, and 15 years as an award-winning filmmaker.

What I am most known for is breathwork – an active breathing technique that wipes away fear and anxiety while cultivating a sense of certainty. This phenomenon, which works with your own biology is called transient hypofrontality.

This practice is gaining popularity in entrepreneurial circles as a “flow hack” or shortcut to getting into a flow state whereby concentration, focus, clarity and confidence increase while anxiety and doubt take a back seat – crucial for all aspects of business performance.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
A couple of times, I’ve had the good fortune to lead breathwork for a seminar room filled with hundreds of entrepreneurs. To see business professionals who have come to a seminar for 7-figure business strategies reduced to tears in an emotional state is incredibly gratifying. I love facilitating powerful transformations and breakthroughs that give participants a peak experience and reminder of what it means to be alive. The result is always a more aligned business that is 100x more effective than a simple strategy or system.
