Andy Bates

Life Coach, Wellness Coach, Relationship Coach


Hi there!  I am a certified professional life coach, speaker and host of The Optimal U Podcast. I coach and teach men all around the world how to break out of mediocre lives and create the careers and relationships they really want. My coaching philosophy is simple:  get focused on what really matters and do what makes a difference.

My coaching will give you: The CONFIDENCE to face any challenge. The COURAGE to move forward. An ENERGIZING strategic plan for success. The power of HOPE to clear the stress & never give up on continually building that brighter future.

Prior to coaching, I spent over ten years as the owner of a successful entertainment production company.   

During my free time you’ll find me building my tiny house, connecting with friends and smiling…always smiling.

How I can help

Remember when you had a vitality for life?! I can help you get that back. Working with me you will learn how to: -Live a life of clarity about what you desire and be empowered to go after it. -Develop the ability to always see opportunities, instead of problems. -Adopt healthier habits. And discover the real reason why you aren’t overcoming bad ones. -Define goals and create a plan for long-term success that is easy to follow and execute. -Have deeper and more connected relationships. And find out exactly what is holding you back from them. -Lead a healthier, happier, more successful life. -Manage unhealthy behaviors and self care more holistically. -Improve self-esteem. My coaching is all about creating an alliance that helps bring out the best in my clients and helps you improve all areas of your life to create and live the life you want. Be it career, relationship or mindset, my holistic approach will empower you to do things beyond what you thought you could do. Through our dialogue and specific solution-focused exercises I will help you break through what’s holding you back from manifesting your dreams – and will challenge you to focus time on what you really want to do.

Who I work with

I work with men aged 30-50.


Andy was born to coach. He is thoughtful and wise with great insight while being very, very patient. He is not afraid to ask the tough questions... and I’ve learned it’s all about questions, but from someone you trust. I wouldn’t be progressing and taking action like I am without Andy and his uncanny ability to coach. I recommend him every chance I get.

I can’t overstate how important my coaching with Andy has been. His guidance made a real life impact on my future. My life has been much more focused and richer since we started working together.
