Meet Kim & Nabs
Hello and Welcome! We are Nabs and Kim Nabieu! Among other things, our drive for personal transformation, growth, leadership, and creating a brighter future for young people drew us closer as friends in 2010 and we later became life partners. Like any other young person or a young couple, we have each navigated major life lessons and blessings across different cultures and various challenges. And with transformation being a journey, we have continued to transform over the years. We have over a decade of experience in the fields of life coaching and personal transformation as well as working with young people and vulnerable groups in our society. We believe that for young people to become authentic leaders that can brighten tomorrow with a true legacy that endures and replicates, their preparation starts today with a focus on character strengths and the things that make life worth living.
Emmanuel “Nabs” Nabieu
When I look back on my life now, as an adult, I just say “wow.” This is because it is obvious that my childhood, teenage years, and early young adult years were not all that smooth. I endured severe trauma at an early age and experienced painful parental loss and separation for many years.
In addition to struggling to navigate and overcome life issues that often drag down many young people, I specifically remember battling with fear and limiting beliefs about my ability to discover my true potential and live a life of purpose, happiness, and success. In addtion to strengthening my faith, these experiences helped me discover how to cultivate tremendous resilience, hope, and the ability to reengage my mind, thoughts, and emotions as I respond to life circumstances, make changes, and accomplish goals.
Among other things, I also enjoy swimming, playing sports, going on adventures, and making meaningful connections.Professional Background: Positive Psychology. Life Coaching Practitioner (Teen/Young Adult Life Coaching, Happiness, Life Purpose, Goal Success, and Total Personal Transformation Coaching). Applied Organizational Psychology. Leadership. Development. Social Services/Child Welfare.
When last did you read an absorbing and deeply moving life story of hope, resilience, and transformation? Nabs’ memoir is a long journey marked by surviving a brutal civil war in Sierra Leone and navigating life on the streets and the orphanage. Read how he overcame severe trauma, bitterness, and soul-crushing life challenges and still found joy in bringing hope and building significance into the lives of vulnerable children and families.
Kimberly “Kim” Nabieu
Growing up I had a strong desire for personal transformation and advancement. I took on one of my most significant challenges when I entered the Peace Corps and spent a big part of my life navigating on my own in different cultures.
My transformation continued during my time in Kenya, Sierra Leone, and Rwanda, where I continued to strengthen my leadership, development, and financial management skills. I have a great passion for equipping the young generation. In addition to partnering with young people to reach their life goals, I have really enjoyed using my experiences, education, practical tools, and practices to help them get better at making, managing, and maintaining money.
I enjoy photography, going on adventures, experiencing nature, reading, and seeing historial sites.Professional Background: Life Coaching. International Development. Leadership. Personal Finance, Social Services/Child Welfare.
Our approach is not based on coaching alone but on meaningful partnership. We help young people develop talents, maximize their strengths, and move toward self-actualizing goals. On our transformation journey, we have eventually learned to no longer see pain and challenges as limitations, but instead as avenues to a greater purpose.
Over the years in our various roles as leaders, mentors, and life coaches, we have enjoyed working with thousands of young people and adults from different places, in different settings, and with different personality types. These diverse experiences and interactions have continued to create a legacy of real value that endures and replicates. Our coaching mission is based on the “I-CAN-DO” Model, which is to empower people to own the results of their breakthroughs as they become more resilient, more capable, and more confident than ever before.
We help our clients achieve extraordinary results while using simple but effective tools that are practical, memorable, fun, and easy to grasp and implement. We find joy in engaging each person’s unique learning skills to maximize results.
