Our Mission

LifeBound is a social impact company that provides resources, coaching, and training to drive learning and personal development for college, career, and life success.


We are dedicated to empowering students to build financial security, self-sufficiency, and fulfillment in their personal and professional lives. Coaching creates a powerful bridge of understanding that can take students from where they are now to the future they want to create.


Our Vision

LifeBound Coaching was born when Carol Carter connected the power of coaching in corporate America with the needs of college students and graduates to be career ready. She realized that coaching could have a significant impact on the ability of students to translate their degrees into success in the world of work.


Carol understood that when faculty and coaches ask first-year students powerful questions about the futures they imagined for themselves, these students are empowered to become self-directed learners, question-based thinkers, and strengths-based workers and leaders. Students empowered through coaching build powerful 21st century skills and demonstrate drive, ambition, grit, follow-through, and persistence in the face of challenge.


When students are coached to build these skills as learners, they become the professionals that the world of work requires, demands, and values. Skillful coaching allows students to discover the power of that connection.

I would like to send all my advising staff and peer coaches… My goal is to introduce the coaching conversation to my college and expand university-wide so this is just the beginning of this beautiful relationship. Thank you for existing!
