About Us

Dr. Al Spicer
CEO & Founder, Extraordinary Life, Inc.

LIFE. LEADERSHIP. LEGACY.

What have you left untapped? For many leaders, bigger questions remain dormant and hidden, waiting to be ignited.

Extraordinary Life, Inc., is the spark that helps visionary leaders focus outward and chart their next course with conviction and clarity.

Do you relate to the following issues?

NOW WHAT?
The perspective from the top can be hazy: which course to chart next?

WHAT REALLY MATTERS?
Leaders have difficulty enjoying their success. Unnecessary sacrifices or mis-steps have been made, whether overworked, disconnected family relationships, discarded hobbies, or poor health, leaving a dusty trail of unfulfillment.

WHO DO I TRUST?
Despite demands for leaders to make the “right” decisions, it can feel impossible to find experienced support that doesn’t hide a personal agenda or subjective bias.

The answer for these problems is often hiding in plain sight! It isn’t loneliness at the top: it’s clarity.

Clarity comes with a trusted source of support. Clarity grows from patience and curiosity that reveals answers. It comes with the courage to ask the unacknowledged questions. A quest for foresight.

It doesn’t require ESP or a crystal ball, although it may certainly feel that way.

Extraordinary Life serves pioneers who have asked “What’s next?” Leaders and leaders-to-be who are waking up, ready to claim their vision and purpose and fulfill their potential.

DO YOU FEEL THE CALL?

ARE YOU READY FOR WHAT’S NEXT?
Get there with a trusted confidant, a solution strategist, a wise mentor, and learn to live and lead… extraordinarily.

Testimonials for Extraordinary Life, Inc.

  • 16 years into my business and I had plateaued. I thought I was doing all the right things but they weren’t working. I was very frustrated and started doubting whether my life’s goals were even possible. Over the past 2 years of working with Al, I'm enjoying two record years in my business, loving my work and life, and have more time for my family!

    Jim ChakiresCEO & Founder, APEX CPA's & Consultants
  • "I've worked with Al for four years and my leadership skills before him were not productive to building a great business and culture. I dreaded going to work due to the culture and people I had in my organization. Now I can say the ROI of coaching with Al is well into seven figures, and I now enjoy leadership and growing my company."

    Mark PodlCEO, Doran Scales, Inc.
  • "This is the first time in my life that I feel like I have total clarity around my career and something I can go after and get excited about! It wasn’t even close when we started. It’s funny, but I have more time in my life, even though I’m doing more! Life is fuller and less frenetic. I’m doing more with less time, and it's been only 3 months!"
