Catalyst helped me re-established control over my days by planning and adhering to a steady sleep and work schedule through reflective conversations. The advice was always practical and personalized. The service had a profound positive effect on my day-to-day life.”

Rafael Schnur
Equity Derivatives Trader, Independent

“As a tech entrepreneur, Catalyst has helped me focus on the most important goals of each day while maintaining healthy habits.

With consistent feedback and accountability from my coach and clone duo, I am able to commit to a routine of time blocking, defining and achieving my most important goals, and reflecting on my performance every day.

Since joining, my mental health, productivity, and work life balance have improved drastically, leading to significant progress in my startup.”

Pinkesh Zaveari
CEO of Leafs Mental Health

“Catalyst and Michael helped me to achieve my most challenging and vital goals. I felt that I was in good hands and able to freely share my thoughts and difficulties with Michael. Having frequent contact made me feel accountable and also not alone. Michael also offered great ideas if ever I got a bit stuck. Catalyst is an excellent source of support and inspiration for challenging goals. I’ll definitely be using this service again.”

Jaine Urbanik
Mental Health Counselor

“Before working with Catalyst, I could not make satisfying progress towards my personal growth goals, including late sleep and wake times and a lack of planning. Catalyst helped me plan and stick to a consistent sleep routine and work schedule. My coach was diligent and motivational in his coaching and always willing to give actionable advice at the right time. Catalyst made me feel like I'm on a team working to achieve my goals.”

Ryan Persons
Computer Science Student at USC - San Diego

“I struggled for years to find the right accountability method to help me reach my goals. Catalyst's customized approach is what finally worked! Having someone check in with me frequently with encouragement, advice, and reflective questions nonjudgmentally provides both accountability and motivation. The number of times I've made myself complete a task or not eat that extra cookie because I knew my Catalyst would check-in... I'm definitely still a work in progress, but I've made more progress toward my goals since working with Catalyst than I have in years trying other methods.”

"Catalyst is a great investment as someone transitioning careers and maintaining healthy habits, including exercise. I really appreciate how every interaction is handled by a caring coach who actively listens and asks thoughtful questions."

Joshua Ordehi
Aspiring Software Engineer (Self-taught)

“Catalyst helped me stayed centered and focused in the midst of overwhelm. As a student juggling multiple obligations, it helped me stay mindful of balancing my sleep alongside my studies.”
