Raised in a family of a doctor and an engineer during the economic breakdown in the post-soviet Ukraine, I grew up under a huge performance pressure from my loving and well educated parents. They, of course, wanted the best for me and tried to prevent me from a difficult life they experienced back then themselves.
I always knew that my passion was helping people, which is why I wanted to become a doctor like my mother. However, my agenda and my goals were largely defined by my parents telling me that I should study business in order to be able to make a good living. At the age of 16 I moved to the capital to start my Bachelor at the top rated university and at the age of 21 I moved to Germany to obtain my Master Degree in Finance.
It was a sunny day of September 2007 when I first visited Frankfurt and discovered all those skyscrapers of the German financial capital, which at that time were strongly associated with wealth and success to me. On that day, I decided that I was going to make a career in the highest building appearing in the skyline view – and I have reached that goal.
During almost 10 years of my banking career I have been growing personally and professionally overtaking responsibility and being in charge of large internal audits of the bank’s retail business and dealing with the management of the bank since 2014.
In 2015 I also obtained my certification of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). However, not really following my above-mentioned passion and creating my life based more on what I should and not what I want to do, I felt unfulfilled in my successful corporate career.
I knew I have gifts to share, but I was not really expressing them.
In 2018 I made a decision to become a business and life coach following my passion and desire to help people and be of service to others. My life and business experience to date together with my genuine interest in spirituality and divine nature of humanity inspired me to create X-Zone Coaching – with the mission to help people to live a fulfilled life of self-realization and conscious choice.
I got certified as Professional Coach by the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching based in Shrewsbury, New York.Book a Free Discovery Session
"Vladyslav was my coach for half a year. Already in my first conversation with Vlad he showed so much presence, empathy and interest in my story. At that time I mainly disliked what I experinced in my job and also tolerated lack of a fulfilling relationship. Working with Vlad helped me to accept what I experienced, realize what I want and drop the victim role, I unconsciously held onto. I am more than happy with my job now and know what I want to create next in my private life."
