Hello Friend, I’m so glad you’re here.
The world has changed, no doubt about it and it’s given you time to start quietly asking yourself, "is now the time to bring more of who I am forward"?
To share the stories that have shaped you into the person you are now and brought you into your heart centered, difference making self into the world?
Are you yearning for connection beyond a screen and wondering how you make a difference as the world opens up again. Not as it was, but into this new version? Your desire to live a life of more meaning and with more purpose runs deeper than it ever has before.
My friend, that is why we were destined to meet.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
My mission is to help you answer your soul’s yearning to create the difference and impact in the way that uses your talents and interests.
I’ve grappled with that yearning and come to understand how pivotal it is in becoming fully yourself and the incredible joy found when you do. Some people know early in their lives, how best to use their talents and gifts in a way that honors themselves and others.
Some people don't, I was one of them. Life has taught me it's never too late and that regardless of how it might seem, life happens for you, not to you. creating a life of purpose. At every stage and every age.
Crafting your life on your terms.
Self-Leadership is guided by your self-awareness – your vision, values, and goals. When you know what’s important, then you can craft your life in a way that has the greatest meaning.
Whatever your background, the most important thing you can do for your health and happiness is align yourself to your values . The next most important is choosing how you will use your talents and gifts to make the world a better place.
You see, research has repeatedly shown that we are happiest and feel the most fulfilled when we feel that our lives are serving a need. When what we do, matters.
But.... it's easy to lose sight of what makes you special, because you forget everything you've learned along the way. The experiences and events that have molded you into the person you've become.
You have become...story blind. You have no idea that what you see as "no big deal" is a very big deal to someone else.
How do I know this? Experience of course!!
Becoming a writer, speaker and mentor mid-life, has meant doing my deep dives into the stories that resonate with those I work with. And the ones that have the most impact are those that everyone can relate to.
Learning how to find your stories, extracting the meaning and then putting them to use in the world is one of the very best gifts you can give.
What if....you wonder.
What if you could share your knowledge and your wisdom in such a way that built a connection or a community and made you memorable for all the right reasons?
The short answer is, you can.
The journey is yours but you’re not meant to travel it alone. Let’s talk and see if we’re a fit to getting you across the bridge from where you are to where you want to be.
Try to find me in a picture before I changed careers – go ahead – I dare you!
I was the master of invisibility and if there was a picture to be taken I could disappear into the back row, behind someone or right out of the room!
Growing up I learned early and often that my value was “less than.”
I became a people-pleaser and deaf to my own wants, needs, and gifts.
Emotionally de-railed, my sense of personal self-worth was battered and left me feeling of little value.
Despite my rocky emotional start, I discovered how my gifts and abilities best serve others.
From being a deep listener, to a fascination of the lives of those around me it's sheer delight watching what happens as you embrace the experiences that make your unique stories of value to those you wish to serve.
We all have stories. Bringing them to the world so that others feel seen, understood and accepted is part of the power of choosing to use them in the ways that serve your bigger goals.
I've learned that we are only as alone as we choose to be and when it comes to your personal path , the smart money is on those who learn to ask for help.
With disruption comes opportunity, is this why you're here, searching for the answers to how to honor more of your gifts and your deep desire to make a difference in the lives of others?
Or, perhaps you're seeing with new eyes that success is possible in your chosen work, once you find and develop the stories unique to your path.
Your life doesn't have to be broken for you to know there's more and I applaud you for delving into the potential, your potential of bringing the best of you into the world.
Rest assured that as you open to new possibilities, the universe will conspire to co-create with you in all your dreams.
Prepare yourself to experience the joy of challenging yourself to claim your whole life experience.
By honoring the wisdom and knowledge that you've acquired and then mindfully choosing the ways in which you can bring that to your corner of the world, you are setting the foundation to great service.
