New Years Resolution: None Biggest Pet Peeve: Blue Pens!
2016 Aha Moment: During April of 2016 we held the 13 Annual Heal a Woman to Heal a Nation Conference. With over 100 CEO students and 800 registered attendees I knew GOD was calling us to do more. Like seriously my team was only operating at 60%. What would happen if we all committed at 100%? What would happen if we went to multiple cities? Standing in a room full of empowered, motivated women all declaring Heal a Woman to Heal a Nation gave me the idea and courage to take our event on the road. 6 cities and over 300 women and girls later, it was one of the best things we ever did.

“Exercise Title: Why are you waiting to live your dream?
Directions: On a sheet of paper, write out your big dream in life (don’t put any limitations on it, dream big, dream out loud). Then write and answer these two questions: Why am I not pursuing this dream right now? What would I regret about not pursuing this dream if my tomorrow never came?

Objective: To identify the real reason you are not walking in your unique greatness and to grant yourself permission to move forward now.”

Coaching Niche: New Years Resolution: I’m not big into New Year’s resolutions, but I usually choose a one word intention for the year. Last year my word was “Spirituality”. 2015 was: “My-Truth,” 2014 was “Tuned-In,” 2013 was “Awe” and 2012 was “Make-Sh*t-Happen.”
2016 Aha Moment: I was walking through the woods with a favorite friend of mine and we were discussing the dangers of using the word “deserve” to speak about what we would like to have in our lives. What makes you so different from other coaches: I have some awesome training – I’m a master life coach, which means I train other people to become coaches. I have a master’s degree in positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. But those things are ultimately not essential. The thing that sets me apart is that I truly believe that it is possible to feel as happy as we want to feel. Average Program Time: 4 Months Average Investment: $300 Monthly
