Dare to Dream

Throughout my life, I’ve focused on working with people to get results. In my life-before-coaching, I was a CPA and business consultant. I worked with my clients to define what they wanted for themselves and their businesses and find ways to accomplish their goals. We frequently discussed non-accounting issues like communication skills, personal balance, and how to have and enjoy a great life. Without knowing what to call it, I was coaching them.

When I found coaching, I found a way to do what I love without having to do taxes! This was one of the best things to happen to me in my professional life. I look forward to going to the office every day — and you can, too!

Mission and Vision

I fully utilize my talents and abilities to create a perfect life for myself, am a role model for my clients, and support people in creating their perfect life.

How I Coach

As a coach, I bring objectivity, independence and confidentiality to the relationship. I am direct and honest with my clients. My role isn’t to tell them what they want to hear — it’s to say what I see from my perspective. I’m caring and supportive, yet I also challenge my clients to go for their dreams.

I’m focused on the big picture and encourage my clients to stretch and go for more than they originally thought possible. I stay with my clients while they accomplish their goals and support them when the going gets rough.

Who I Work With

The larger the gap between where you are today and where you want to be, the more impactive coaching can be. Some clients come knowing where they want to go and are looking for a way to get there more quickly and easily. Others come to the relationship dissatisfied with some part of their business or personal life and yet aren’t sure exactly what changes to make.

I especially enjoy working with clients in a business setting. This includes business owners (whether established businesses or start-ups), entrepreneurs, CEO’s, sales professionals, members of family businesses (I’ve been part of several), professionals (accountants, attorneys, architects, etc.), physicians, dentists and chiropractors.

Most times the challenges are directly related to business and yet often they are more personal in nature, like: How to have more personal time or how to maintain a balance between their business and personal life.
