You live a life of service. You are good at what you do. You've got years of education or experience in your field.

And yet, there's that little voice inside that's getting louder. It's telling you that it's time for something new, bigger, or different. 

Listening to that voice feels like an act of courage. Actually figuring out what to do seems confusing. 

"I have felt like an observer of my own life for a long time, like being part of the crowd watching a game. Dawn's coaching helped me to start to gain some sense of control for my life, taking me off the bench and onto the field of play." ~ Kristin Rice, Pastor, Kingsford, MI

I'm Dawn Trautman founder of Big Picture Big Purpose. I coach early to mid-career entrepreneurs, artists, and church leaders to fully step into their true calling. My clients all follow the same step-by-step process, but their results are as diverse as the people. For example, they have changed careers, spent six months traveling the world as an artist, turned a blog into a book and then national speaking gigs, and become a missionary to Kenya.  

Together, we discern what that “still, small voice of God” is calling you to do, and then devise tiny but brave steps that make it a reality while continuing to work on the internal fears and roadblocks that have stopped you in the past.  

What sets me apart from other coaches is the combination of my two Masters degrees in theology and organizational psychology that makes the journey equal parts spiritual, emotional, and action oriented. I also draw on over a decade as a National Board Certified Life Coach, and my experience leading churches, non-profits, live theatrical events, and as a small business owner.

Stop settling. Start living your calling.

"Before I worked with Dawn, I would spend hours online trying to figure out what to do next for my business, and then additional weeks procrastinating about doing it. She saved me so much time, and helped me fast track my dream.” ~ Rebecca Larkin, Small Business Owner, Long Island, NY

Whether you choose a one-on-one coaching, an online group program, a live event, or a custom Mindset Movie, the Big Picture Big Purpose process will guide you to:

  • Listen to where God is calling you next. 
  • Create habits and complete tasks that move you systematically toward your next chapter.
  • Identify and overcome fears that have been holding you back.
  • Eliminate activities that are no longer necessary.
  • Build confidence to take bigger action.

"Dawn's coaching has been without a doubt a great use of my time and money. I have been challenged and have grown in my own understanding of who I am. I have learned how to create healthy habits that motivate me to set larger life goals. And I am growing, step by step, in how to use my time so as to accomplish life goals that match my values. Thank you Dawn." ~ Pastor Steve Meyer, Caledonia, MN 

I grew up in a progressive Midwestern Protestant home, being taught to work hard and serve others, but never "show off" or get "too big for your britches." 

Over time, I discovered that truly serving sometimes means stepping outside those lines to forge a new path. I'm all about empowering others to step outside the lines and live their calling, for the good of those around them. 

"I made more progress in half an hour with Dawn than I had in the previous five years." ~ Jenny Aleckson, Director of Senior High Ministry, MN

I learned a lot as I partnered with leaders at these and other fine institutions. 

"Dawn's coaching was an invaluable blessing and gift! Her step by step process helped me tap into my most authentic desires and opened me up to moving across the country to a place where I have thrived!" ~ Amanda Batcher, Ford Model, Chicago, IL
