Hi, I’m

(yes, it’s my real name),

Buck Dodson

and I’m all in on helping you live a full life deeply committed to your wellbeing with loving relationships, engaging work, a sense of purpose, and all the joy you deserve.

“But hold up!” you say. “I struggle with self-care,

love sucks, my job is lame, and joy – what’s that?”

I get it and I can relate. I used to believe a joyful, healthy life surrounded by people I love, doing satisfying work that pays me what I’m worth was for other people. They had the secret playbook. They’d cracked the code. They had what I didn’t. 

But I don’t see it that way anymore, and you don’t have to either. I want to share what I’ve learned with you.


Are you ready to:

  • Be free to say how you feel and what you want

  • Spend your time connecting not perfecting

  • Receive as much as you give

  • Step into your superpower as a leader and a lover

  • Give yourself permission to be yourself

  • Succeed on your own terms

I hope your answer is “Yes!!” Your friends, family, coworkers, and community need all of who you are and can be — your truth, authenticity, confidence, and definitely your love.

The son of a rancher and Texas high school cheerleader, I was named to be a rodeo star. Since I’ve only donned a cowboy hat and boots during Madonna’s “Music” phase circa 2000, I’d say the whole rodeo thing didn’t take. But the name did, and here I am, a 40-something guy living the dream. 

By “the dream,” I mean living fully and imperfectly as myself, creating my life’s work and learning to love & be loved - body, mind and spirit – one day a time.


Personally, I do this as a friend, lover, brother, and community member. And professionally as a life and business coach, podcast host and counselor, having spent close to twenty years as a personal and organizational growth guide. 

Highly sensitive, spiritual and a “feeler” by nature, I’m also a Gemini and Human Design Manifestor who thrives on deep curiosity, communication and connection. I love a big idea, I believe relationships hold the keys to life success and I’m passionate about guiding clients to create lives and businesses that speak their truth.
