Adulting, made simpler.

All the advice is confusing, isn't it? Well, we were lost too. 

We write, review and build products to make adulting a less painful process. 

Do you feel stuck in your adulting?

Like you're going nowhere in any of the things that are important to you?


You feel like you're dragging yourself out of bed everyday. You hit snooze. You look forward to the weekend, but when the weekend comes, you barely have the energy to enjoy it. You've forgotten what it feels like to have that fullblooded laughter. To love life.


You don't know how to do this work thing well. Your boss is scolding you. You have toxic colleagues. You don't know why it's so hard to do a good job. You're losing confidence in yourself. You wonder if you should just quit. Are you just NEVER going to succeed at work?


You're constantly tired. You see yourself stuffing unhealthy food down your body, and you want to stop... but you can't. You don't feel good about your own body. You know you should do something about your weight, but you just don't have the motivation to do so. 


You're frustrated at 'dying' for a paycheck. You wait till the end of the month for the paycheck to come, but it's almost immediately gone with all the direct debits. You're scared. You wonder how you're ever going to fund your retirement, let alone find freedom. 

Can we ease your mind a bit? 

There's nothing wrong with you. Life can really be frustrating and overwhelming when you first start work. After all, school never taught you how to do the 'adult' study. Only how to ace stuff. 

You're not a bad adult. And you're not alone. 

  • You just need the right tools to be confident about this 'adult' thing. 

We have the guidance you need. 


I'm  John. 

As a Registered Social Worker, I've worked with hundreds of young people just like you, from Peru, to the U.K., to Singapore, to Indonesia. People who struggle in their transition to adulthood. Nothing's working. 

Our coaching helps you with the principles to succeed in your quest for happiness, health and great work, and wealth. 

Own your Adult life. 

Laugh wholeheartedly. Live healthily. Love your work. Leave a legacy. 

Be a superhero at work. 

At work, you want your colleagues to look up to you. Your boss to love you. To get your pay rise and promotion. You want to be the linchpin. The clutch player. The go-to person. Not the burden. 

Your life, your terms. 

You want a life that works for you. Not some online course that everyone else has. We don't do one-size-fits-all solutions. We understand you before even trying to build a solution with you. 

Wake up excited everyday. 

Stop snoozing your alarm and turning back into bed. Wake up excited, driven, motivated, and full of passion. Wake up roaring to go. Go to work excited. 

Affordable pricing

Money is important, but we want to make transformation accessible for people in their early careers, whom we know may not earn much. 

Love your body. 

Are you sick and tired of telling yourself every year that you will lose weight, but you never do? Patting your tummy that never seems to go down? There are principles that will help you feel lithe, alive, and whole. 

Transformative experiences

We don't tell you to do things we haven't done. Our transformation happens because we try everything out on ourselves before we tell someone else to do it. 

We know what it feels like. 

We know what it feels like to see everyone getting ahead, and seeing yourself seemingly getting nowhere. The frustration of being looked over for the promotion. The disappointment as you look at yourself in the mirror. 

We know you're the type of person who fights, who is driven and ambitious. Who wants to be excited, passionate and purposeful in life.

You're here because you're a fighter. You hustle. You tussle. 

And you struggle

That's really painful. We're here to help. 

Clients say

Having had experience in public speaking, I was confident in my speaking abilities and charisma prior to entering John Lim's tutelage. However, under his guidance I quickly understood that speeches are less about bravado, and more about substance

Why this works

At Live Young and Well, we know you're the kind of people who wants to be excited, passionate and purposeful in life. To be that way, you need a firm foundation based on principles, a supportive community, and a coach for the journey.


The problem is information noise, where there's so many gurus out there today that you wonder who to listen to. You feel frustrated that gurus keep promising, but never delivering. Then you look at your social media feeds, and you see the friends around you 'killing' it, living a life they love, and you feel even more left behind. 

We believe that no one should ever struggle in adulting. But you just weren't dealt a fair hand. School never taught you how to adult. They just taught you how to ace your subjects. 

We understand how frustrating it is to feel that you don't know how to succeed in life, get what you want, and live a happy life. 

That's why we developed the Uncover Framework. Here's how it works. 

uncover framework

How it works

  • Understand your purpose by knowing your why, what drives you, and what makes you wake up every morning. 
  • Unlock your skills by understanding what you're best at through assessments like the Strengthsfinder. 
  • Unleash your potential by finding the stages where you can use your potential for the good of our world. 

So schedule a call now. 

Stop being stuck in life, going nowhere, and seeing your friends get ahead. Stop banging your head trying to listen to the next guru, or follow the next hottest trend. 

Start unleashing your own unique potential. By understanding your purpose. Unlocking the skills within you. Unleashing your potential on the stages that matter.

Life's too short to hate work.

I'm John Lim, and over 4 years, I suffered 2 quarter-life crises. I realised that all my efforts on how and what to do to climb the career ladder were not as important as why I was climbing. 

To unleash one's potential, I discovered Purpose + Passion = Potential 

As my gift, here's my 3-part course on unleashing your fullest potential for work.

I'm  John Lim. 

I suffered two quarter life crises in 4 years. I struggled to find passion and purpose in my work. Then I realised it wasn't just me. When I started working with young people, I saw people my age facing the same thing. 

There's a world where people can flourish into their fullest selves. They can live understanding their purpose, unlocking their skills, and unleash their potential for the good of the world. 

There's a world where their bosses can create the spaces where they can thrive, and not just survive. 

Let's create that. 

During my time as the CEO of UoNSU, I had a series of reverse mentoring sessions with John to explore the unique challenges of students from minority backgrounds. He helped me to see things from the perspectives of these students. He also prompted thought into what could be done to help them to develop their fullest potential. I am confident that John's future clients would find his passion, wisdom and courage to raise difficult questions helpful.

Daryl Omerod, CEO of University of Nottingham's Students' Union

John shared with our secondary 4 students last year regarding mental health. He talked bravely about his own experiences of failure and how he rose again following that. His honest sharing created an open and vulnerable space for students and invited many questions from students about a socially taboo topic. Sharing from his personal experiences allowed the students to feel connected to him and his stories.
