Monday, January 5th, 2009

Dream Congratulations!  By now you have spent some time thinking about what you want to create in 2009 and hopefully you didn't limit yourself regarding what that looked like.  You deserve to dream big and you deserve to live a big vision - together we'll discuss how you get there.

Taking poetic license from the NBA, this is the year you get to play big or go home.

That's what I'm holding you to.

Playing big doesn't necessarily mean becoming President of the US.  Playing big could mean getting    Read More

Hello Mr Gremlin. Thank you for sharing.

Bugsbunnygremlin We all have a voice in our head that speaks to us in certain situations.  That voice gives us confidence or instills us with fear.  It helps us to take action and it keeps us from taking action.

Meet your gremlin..

Your gremlin is the inner conversation or better yet, the inner critic that keeps you from doing something you really want to accomplish.  It is the voice that tells you you aren't good enough, pretty/handsome enough, smart enough, credentialed enough etc.  It is the voice that tells you not to even    Read More

"The greatest danger for most of us is not that we aim high and miss it, but rather that we aim low and reach it."

As I have evolved as a business coach, my business tag lines have also evolved.  Somewhere in my journey, I came across the Michelangelo quote that led me to the tag line above and I'm writing today because I want to share that although I primarily focus in the business arena, the main reason I love the quote is because it applies to any pursuit.  Whether your goal is about career or weight loss, don't settle    Read More

coaching 101

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

The first question most coaches are asked is, "What is coaching?".  You are certainly welcome to visit my website for some detailed information but when most people think of a coach, they think sports.

While I have always considered myself a techy, I hadn't quite gotten enough energy (or nerve) to join the blogging crowd but I must admit I find it a fascinating way to share thoughts and stay connected with like-minded individuals.
