Practicing courage is my expertise. Teaching others how to powerfully practice courage is my vocation.
I stand for righteous integrity and ferocious love, all in service to living life on your own terms and being a force for good. This I know to be true: start practicing courage, and you get unstoppable.
1.) One-on-one life coaching –that meets you where you’re at, and then sounds the call for you to rise. My specialty? Courage. Connection and integrity are also part of the ride. This is not another trip around the self-help hamster wheel. This is the core work that transforms long-standing patterns so that you can see lasting life change–and get to the joy that you’re meant to be experiencing. Let’s live it UP!
2.) I create E-programs that take you step-by-step through learning how to master courage practices in your life–or how to build a profitable and stunningly gorgeous coaching business. They’re bursting with content, audio, media, interviews–as much love as I can pack into one digital product. And you can take this to the bank: “No bullshit–just real work, and a whole lot of love.” Prepare to amaze yourself.
3.) Consulting for life coaches who are ready to quit hanging out in the “kinda sorta” place, and move into true success–that means making the cash and feeling fulfilled and excited about doing it. Get solid on how to clarify your message and monetize your offerings, cutting through the overwhelm so that you can see your practice bloom.
4.) I rally crowds: invite me to your business or event, and we’ll talk about how working with fear instead of against it will have you, or your employees/co-workers, playing a revolutionary new game. Small business associations and chamber of commerce organizations will love my take on how brick-and-mortar businesses can use social media to increase business–without spending hours (or thousands) on marketing consultants.
I’ve Been There
Today, my life stuns me pretty regularly with its generosity, simple elegance, and its capacity to offer love. Wine country sunsets, vinyasa yoga, time to breathe, books tumbling off of shelves, two adorable cats and one handsome Italian husband are part of the deal, not to mention a successful business doing work that I love.
And–I know what it’s like to go through the motions, pay the bills, wear your seat belt, show up for work, and smile when required…yet know that something pretty big is missing. That was my life, and I’m acutely aware of the fact that if I didn’t consciously choose to practice courage as a habit, it could be my life, again.
I tried about a gazillion 1-2-3 step plans before I figured out that digging deep, getting to the core issues, telling the truth and telling it clean, and living my life with integrity had to be core courage practices.
It’s for this reason that I walk my talk. I’m not going to bullshit anyone. Real change takes real work. The people who decide that they’re not going to live another day settling automatically up their joy quotient by, like, a gazillion. Hang around here long enough and you’ll see that I’m a straight shooter with lots of hard-won wisdom, pragmatic tools, and a ton of ferocious love–love for you, that is. Big visions and world changers are welcome.
The most powerful and exciting work that I’ve done is the work of radically reframing my relationship to fear and choosing to practice courage.
I now understand how fear works–all the tricky ins and outs and disguises and internal narratives.
When you understand something, it becomes your friend.
