Business Consultant.  Professional Coach & Mentor. Marketing & Growth Strategist. 

My years of experience have given my the wisdom and business acumen to make a significant impact on the clients I serve. 

I have been working with and mentoring new entrepreneurs as well as established business owners and their leadership teams for over 35 years. I focus on achieving results not only in personal development, but the skills and tools to garner greater business growth and profitability. 

I have an exuberant passion for supporting leaders and their businesses to "unleash" the greatness within them. I am expert in working with Business professionals- ie. insurance brokers & agents, real estate brokers & agents, financial planners, entrepreneurial business owners, and "solo"-preneurs to build confidence and provide the right kind of encouragement.  I want to support entrepreneurs so they can enjoy their labor and the fruits it produces. 

What does success mean to you?  I will be a tremendous asset to help you acquire success, build on it and increase your confidence and courage to grow in your business. 

I put people and systems into place that support growth as part of the plan that I will design together with you as a client. 

I feel fulfullied when I help individuals and companies get to the next level by doing and taking the actions necessary to get there. Working with me is not a "one size fits all" recipe I use for all of my clients.  My services are unique and are built around you, the leader, and the team you lead. 

I am known as a "power house", but I always strive to work with grace, ease, and joy when working with my clients. 

Action is the only way you will get to the next level.  Don’t wait  for next month or next quarter – contact me today and let's get started on your new journey to success!
