Inspirational Speaker, Breakthrough Facilitator, Communication & Productivity Expert
What I’ve discovered over the past 30 years as an entrepreneur, is that most people have given up on their dreams. It is so easy to get in a rut, the day-to-day grind of life. They want more yet aren’t sure how to get it. That is why I am inspired to help those that aspire for more out of life and want to THRIVE – I’ve been there!
I have experienced quite a bit of variety over the past 30 years. I have gone from waiting tables and managing several different retail chain stores, to owning and operating my own retail store. I have partnered with several different home based companies and grew large organizations within a relatively short amount of time, enabling me to rise to the top 1% of each of those companies. I also did so as a single person, then married, then married with kids, and then as a single mom. All phases of my journey brought their own unique challenges and incredible rewards.
What was most impactful for me over the years is the personal and professional growth I’ve experienced. I was first introduced to this idea by a wonderful leader in the first company I partnered with. She gave me two books: “The Greatest Networker in the World” by John Milton Fogg, and “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. I was hooked.
These books opened my eyes to possibilities. I fell in love with personal development and over the years, I’ve had an insatiable appetite for reading all I can on the subject as well as immersing myself in a wide variety of workshops and retreats to grow my understanding of self, of the human condition and how to break through limiting beliefs and behaviors. This road that I have traveled has not been easy. It is difficult to take a look in the mirror and not only face why we are as we are, yet to also accept it, understand and appreciate all that we are, and learn how to choose to do different. I am convinced it was this learning, and more importantly, applying this knowledge in my own life, that has enabled me to have the amazing relationships, incredible experiences and success that I’ve been able to enjoy over the years.
My passion has evolved these past several years into empowering others to elevate their emotional intelligence, to embrace the immense power we each have to attract what it is we desire, and discover how vitally important it is that we are able to shift quickly back into a calm, centered state when we are triggered or slip into not-so-good feelings by understanding our emotional guidance system. Through my speaking engagements, group programs, transformational coaching and other offerings, my mission is to bring this awareness to others, and equip them with practical tools so they can realize the immense joy of living their best life!
