The Boundless Experience

This is not your typical speaking engagement.

If you’re looking for someone to simply talk at your audience in an attempt to passively inspire them, Andy is not the speaker for you. An engagement with Andy is a true people-focused, interactive experience – a workshop split 60/40 between speaking and audience participation. Attendees of a workshop take an introspective look at their own lives to determine what they most truly want out of them, set goals, and create an actionable plan to achieve them.

The Boundless Experience utilizes the Boundless Guide - a set of tools created to allow attendees to zoom out into the future and back into the present and focus on the creation of their own personal Boundless Life. The sections of the guide follow a proven format beginning with the totality of their life, then back to their satisfaction level with their current state, and back out again to a 10-year horizon and so on. By envisioning their future life, participants are able to work backwards to create an action-oriented plan to make that vision a reality.

This is one speaking engagement where participants will say that they are leaving in a better place than when they arrived.

Engagement Formats


In this 60–90-minute engagement, Andy introduces participants to the Boundless Journal & Guide, and takes them through foundational exercises, such as, ‘Where does distraction come from? How do you maximize your focus to create additional productivity? And what is your current state – Your Now?’ to set the stage to develop the skills they’ll need in creating their actionable personal Boundless plan. The audience will leave with their own Boundless Journal which they can use to follow the steps toward living a boundless life.

Half-Day Workshop:

In this 3-4 hour session, participants will complete multiple work-tools from the Boundless Guide and begin to devise their own life plan right in the room. The audience will not only set meaningful goals and understand the why behind them, but will start to create a step-by-step plan to achieve them. Participants will receive the Boundless Journal to measure and track their ongoing progress.

No Try

Andy Bailey knows entrepreneurs. Now the CEO and Founder of Petra Coach, Andy started his career as an entrepreneur, founding NationLink Wireless while still in college and growing it into an Inc. 500 corporation. After burning the candle at both ends for years, Andy realized he was working “in” his job, not “on” his business. He began searching for ways to achieve his ultimate entrepreneurial dream and began implementing a specific methodology, based on the Rockefeller Habits.

Andy’s first book details his business-booming methodologies and the principles implemented within Petra Coach. No Try, Only Do is about avoiding an excuse culture, in exchange for a culture of purpose, alignment and accountability.

If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur, there’s no room for “try” in your vocabulary.

Vitamin B

Andy Bailey has spent his life listening to thought leaders, reading hundreds of books, attending countless events and working with hundreds of teams. And it all boils down to this: take daily action on what you are learning and studying. Nothing ever changes if you don’t.

He wrote his second book with that goal in mind – to provide you with a daily dose of learning. Served in bite-sized chunks, Vitamin B gives you a simple formula that allows you to take what you read each day and convert it to meaningful action.

You are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Andy and his team. Reading this book is the equivalent of having one of the premier business coaches in the world share his best ideas with you...this book has the potential to change your business and your life in many, many positive ways. –John Spence | America’s TOP 100 Thought Leaders

Since your session, my goals in my life are clear and non-negotiable. Setting my goals in life was one thing, but understanding the why of these goals makes them the way to live my life. I wake up every day thanking life and taking time to be grateful. So every morning is a happy moment! You made me identify what I really want for myself, and the ones I love, for the next 10 years. Once I knew that, there’s no more wasting time or hesitation. It is either reaching my goals or not. I like the fact that I’m accountable for myself every day. Your method is structured and easy to follow. I’m grateful to live successfully my life!

Andy’s Boundless Self/No Try Life workshop provided me with a priceless framework for setting meaningful intention in my daily activities. I credit Andy’s coaching in the workshop as the motivating force behind my personal and business achievements since the session. His inspiration and systems fueled me to thrive instead of “just” survive!

It all begins with you…you need to put your oxygen mask on first. This session truly outlined the foundation for continuous improvement and mastering the art of one day at a time/one habit at a time. The plan that I created has not only helped me with my professional development but also with my personal family development. Not to mention I’ve made lifelong friends. Completely worth any investment!
