Welcome Change Making Entrepreneurs

The world is in a time of unprecedented change and your genius as a healer/teacher/creative and coach is needed. 

Will you make it easy for your aligned clients to find you?

And will you...

....choose to do it in a way that shines a light on your expertise?

The Truth Is:

This is the perfect time to amplify your message, increase your impact by tapping into your stories and using them in all of your marketing efforts. 

The good news is that you don't have to do  all the things .

If you've been considering adding speaking to your marketing, or finally writing that book, it starts with your stories. This is how to create real connection with the people ready to hear you.

Once you know the stories  suited to your message and  which are your preferred methods to effectively share them.


  • You’ll discover the confidence to speak to your clients in ways that honor you and your work so that they know you are trustworthy.
  • You’ll know your value and your people love and respect you for making your offerings from a place of integrity. 
  • Your work will be found by those who need and want it so that you can create even greater impact and an ever-increasing flow of income. 
  •  New collaborations and opportunities appear as if by magic, allowing your special legacy to live long past you and create positive change for generations

Whether you develop yourself as a speaker or author to support your marketing efforts, it's your unique experiences and authentic stories that will draw your aligned clients to you. The simplest way for a relationship to move along the pathway of know-like-trust.

 From network groups to service clubs, online panels or tradeshows, becoming a knowledgeable and enjoyable speaker is a proven method to fast track your success. When you are seen, heard and your authenticity is felt, people will want to know how they can work with you. 

If you're ready to expand your expert status, consider the power of adding speaking or authorship to your arsenal of tools.

 Don't let the  "don't know how " message loop keep you from beginning.

Guide not guru

Figuring out your business on your own is possible but that's the long way around. I know because in my first business that's what I did.

Intuitively I knew two things:

  • that speaking is a great option, if you know how to use it effectively to market your business 
  • writing a book is an excellent way to showcase your expertise

I developed a speech and wrote a book but neither had the reach and impact I dearly wanted. 

Fast forward a couple of decades and now I know what a difference the right mentor can make. 

Speaking as a marketing tool for your business works, but to create an effective speech means knowing your audience and how to put your stories together that inspire your audience to action. 

The same is true if you're ready to add author to your CV.

On my own,  I made mistakes, some of them embarrassing. Consider that a bonus for you, since I'll help you stay clear of those blunders. 

Discover how to bring speaking or authorship into your marketing efforts and enjoy  new opportunities and collaborations. All while filling you with more soul brimming  joy than you knew possible, not to mention a healthy bank account. 

As an author, speaker and mentor it fills my soul to help kindred spirits like you to achieve your goals.
