Rise Up - Coaching for Personal Growth


Greetings, my name is Lee, your guide and companion on the journey of personal and professional development. Over two decades ago, I started One Man Can with the simple belief that each individual has the potential to make a meaningful change and a significant impact on the world. Throughout my career, I’ve honed my expertise in nurturing talent, illuminating paths to success, and guiding individuals through the intricacies of career development, entrepreneurship and pursuing their passion.

My journey is marked by resilience, as I’ve navigated my own challenges, particularly in traversing the landscape of mental health recovery. This journey has not only fortified my resilience but also deepened my empathy, underscored my commitment to mental health advocacy, and propelled me to create Arts Artists Artwork. This thriving global online community supports artists, champions the arts, and inspires joy among over a million followers. Despite adversity, I’ve persevered and grown, embodying the spirit of resilience and adaptability that is integral to entrepreneurship.

As I return to my coaching mission today, I bring with me a wealth of experience in empowering individuals, an enriched understanding of the human spirit, and a steadfast belief in the transformative power of coaching. Armed with these insights and experiences, I am committed to helping you unlock your potential, whether you’re seeking career advancement, entrepreneurial success, or personal growth.

My Coaching Philosophy

I believe in the power of human spirit and the immense potential lying within each one of us. My coaching philosophy blends elements of career guidance, self-employment mentorship, and spiritual grounding. I draw upon a wide range of tools, techniques, and personal experiences, with a special focus on mental health support and resilience building.
