I’m available for speaking, training, and workshops for your organization.

As a personal development teacher and coach, I bring 20 years experience to the table along with my passion, energy, and mission to help people live happy and fulfilled lives. My passion is to help others live theirs by helping them free up the mind of the doubts, limits, fears, and other mental blocks that can get in the way of finding the flow in their lives.

I can talk on a variety of topics like reducing stress, worry, and anxiety, increasing happiness, fulfillment, and peace of mind, tapping our built-in potential, transforming our challenges into “fuel for new growth,” and more. Whether you’re looking for an inspirational talk or a hands-on practical oriented training, I can customize my presentation to match your organization’s and audience’s needs.

Carl "the Catalyst"

I'm Carl Contino, life coach and founder of Untapped Genius. I've had the honor of coaching folks from all walks for life, from the homeless to the famous, and all ages. They include entrepreneurs, business owners, creatives, visionaries, and others who want to uplevel their game and make a positive impact in the world.

When I coach, I bring "the all of me" to the table - 20 years of teaching and coaching personal development as well as my background in music, engineering, online business development, my love of inventing gadgets, painting and drawing, and getting out into nature, skiing, and kite surfing.

Guide to Life as a Wave
Four Principles of Rhythm & Flow

My approach to personal development is called Life as a Wave and is the culmination of what I've learned teaching and coaching over the past 20 years. The ebook is a summary of natural principles of movement that can be used in any area of life. It's about creating a state of flow so that you can be at your best and enjoy life to the fullest.

What My Clients Say

I've had the honor of working with folks from all walks of life and all ages, including entrepreneurs, small businesses, creatives, visionaries, and others who want to up-level their game and make a positive impact in the world. 

Mindset & Creativity

Carl has created one of the most original and invigorating frameworks for enjoying creative freedom in even the simplest and most mundane parts of everyday life.

It’s a simple and achievable way to engage in courageous living. If it’s true that everything that we do is motivated by either our hopes or our fears, then Carl’s created a way to act on our hopes without being distracted by our fears.

In my career as a filmmaker, there are countless risks that I have to take. I turn to Carl’s methods on a daily basis to help me make those choices with courage and conviction. He’s helped to give me a creative freedom that I might not otherwise have claimed as my artistic right.
