Welcome To Our Community

Hi, I'm Drew Deraney, the proud father of three, and for most of my life I was concerned with what people thought of me and how I was supposed to act.

In a 9-month span a few years ago, I endured four faith-shaking life events that caused me to question my existence. I realized it was a commonality for men to consider any challenge a weakness as well as to show emotion and ask for help. While writing my book, I realized I was not the only man suffering in silence.

I was determined to find a better way to live. With more clarity of purpose than ever, I began asking for help. Through intense self-reflection and awareness, I realized that in order to be happy, I must adhere to my standards of honesty, integrity and truth and needed to break free from the belief system that was anchored in me for close to 50 years.

Now a self-discovery coach, my men's group and coaching provide a safe space for men to learn to tap into their natural power through self-discover to lead their life, write their story and live the life they want to live.

I was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ where I still live to this day caring for my elderly mom and my 3 adult children Matthew, Nicholas, and Emma. I earned my B.A. in Psychology, M.A. in Applied Psychology, and two psychology research publications while at Fairfield University; a scholarship from the Healthcare Financial Management Association; and my M.B.A. in Health Care Administration from Baruch College / Mount Sinai School of Medicine in NY. My hospital career spanned 24 years where I was co-chair of the Leadership Institute, spoke at JD Power, was one of three leaders interviewed by The Commonwealth Fund, received my Communicating with Empathy Trainer certification and is a Certified Patient Experience Professional. Four years ago, I founded Profit Compassion LLC, an entity to coach and empower mostly men to create resiliency and authenticity as Chief Resilience Officer. I am the podcast host of

‘From Caving in to Crushing It’

and recently became a best-selling author with my #1 International Best Selling book

‘I’ll Have What She’s Having’ - Memoir of a reformed People Pleaser.
