The first story is about how I envisioned a consulting business for myself and within a few short months I was earning well into the six figures.
The secrets of my success included leveraging my track record as a consultant, including 8 years at Walt Disney World and my willingness to invest in my business and take smart risks.
As a result of my consulting practice, I have advised executives in world-class companies all around the world.
My real moment of courage wasn’t when I took a gamble on my business and my website went live. It was when I quit my job at Disney a couple of years prior to starting my business. I didn't leave Disney for a better job or to start my business. It was because I knew that if I stayed working there in the capacity I was, I was never going to achieve my highest potential. Part of the reason was to be there for my small kids.
The other part is just that internal discontent and quiet knowing that there was more to life than what I was living.
Leaving Disney was one of the hardest decisions of my life. Landing the job was the realization of a lifelong dream and all the hard work I put into attaining my masters' degree.
Sure I was struggling with the sheer exhaustion of raising small kids while holding a highly visible position, but what gave me the courage to make a change was when my Dad died of lung cancer way too young.
It was a wakeup call showed me that there was more to life than climbing the corporate ladder.

I work with high-achievers who are seriously considering or are in the middle of a major career or business transformation.

Through my eCourses, Mentor Programs, Mastermind Groups and Transformative Retreats you'll get the inspiration and proven, transferable best practices to help you accelerate the achievement of your dreams.
I want to help you see, own and value your best-at strengths and then find the words to communicate the difference that they make to your perfect client.

You don't have to get stuck in your head wondering what you need to do to get traction on your dreams. There is a better way.
The one decision you'll never regret is organizing your career around what matters most to you.
It's been over 10 years since I left Disney and started my own business. Those small kids are now teenagers and I haven't missed a thing (except for one recital when my daughter was 4 but I had a friend record it!)
Let's face it - my career transformation (and your future one) was never just about my career. It was about my life.
My personal theme song since leaving Disney has been Bon Jovi’s “It’s my Life”. In the song, they sing, “It’s my life, it’s now or never. I ain't going to live forever, I just want to live while I’m alive.”
Do you feel like you are living fully alive? If no, don’t set some arbitrary goal and hope that happiness and greater success will come to you in the future. Instead set your intentions on recreating your career and business where your personal and professional life ooze with a sense of vitality and purpose and mostly joy.
Your highest potential is here, right now. All you need is the courage to believe it.
