I help people create action-oriented goals, collaborate on a plan to achieve those goals, and dream big. Actions have value if they create results you can measure. I’m part business strategist, marketing maven, and awareness creator. My goal is to increase the value and benefit you get out of life in a proportion that you may not have thought possible. I give you tools that you immediately use. I deliver innovative and quality small business and personal development coaching. I am obsessed and relentlessly focused on you and your businesses’ improvement. I am a lifelong student of success. My favorite story is the one that will change your life forever.
This is what I do, but is not who I am. I am a small town girl who has lived most of her life near a big city. I grew up in the south, but don’t have (much) of a drawl. Sometimes I wish I did. I have had a life-long love affair with books. Yes, I have digital devices, but I still love the printed word bound into that thing we call a book. Equally fascinated with fiction and non-fiction, I tend to spend more time surrounded by business publications. For years, I said I should write a book about how life should be lived backward and then learned of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – life goes on. While I do not want to say out loud that I could write a better story than F. Scott Fitzgerald, I think I could! I am serious, practical, loyal, considerate, and much more. In sum, I consciously surround myself with the most amazing people and sincerely attempt to do what I say I am going to do.
I am globally recognized for skills in:
Now, I am taking these combined experiences and using them to help others achieve their career goals. Your career is a journey. As you plot a course for your next major destination and professional goal, you want to consult with the best. I have traveled the path on which you are about to embark, and will guide you safely and prosperously to the other side.
