Work With Me

Is there a specific challenge you’re dealing with or a goal you’re looking to tackle? When I said I’m committed to cutting through the hype and do what matters to help clients achieve their ‘next’ in business, I meant it.

idea-plan-actionMy own transformation started with a shift in thinking and a desire to understand how the mind works. A not so typical career path, experiences gained, and lessons learned while building my own business have given me a unique perspective and skill set. If I told you I deliver information through keynote speaking, training and business coaching (along with publishing two books), you might put me into the typical buckets, but the work I do with clients is far from typical.

Here are just a few ways we can work together……..starting with the one that takes the least amount of your time and gives you a wealth of insight and resources too!


I currently publish a podcast every other week – In Layman’s Terms (of course). It’s done interview style so you’ll hear from leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs and experts in a variety of industries. Every episode is loaded with insights to help you shorten the learning curve and succeed in business (and life) through the power of connecting and relationships.


If self-study is your preferred method of learning, then consider my books which are in print, on Audible and Kindle too. I’ve poured as much of my knowledge and expertise into them as I possibly could along with tactics and resources. Your Connecting Advantage will help you position yourself for opportunities and make valuable connections that will last a lifetime. You can shift thinking, tackle comfort zones and create a game plan for growth with Just Another Leap.

Business Coaching

Are currently leading a team, in business development, career transition, or pursuing the solopreneur route? That’s where an outside perspective can help you gain the clarity you need to produce amazing results quickly and effectively. Whether it’s differentiating yourself from your competition or creating lucrative strategic relationships, I’ll help you focus on key issues, eliminate distractions and hold you accountable in order to reach your goals. Yes, we get in the weeds together. If business development is your focus then the Connecting Advantage Program may be just what you need.

Customized Training

Goals, challenges, and opportunities don’t come in a one-size-fits-all package. I create dynamic atmospheres in groups small and large, from company departments to leadership teams and national associations. Through custom-designed, on-site workshops and discussions, we get to the heart of the issues and design immediate action plans. These sessions will leave you energized, engaged and ready to take action. Learn more.

Keynotes & Breakout Sessions

With over eight years experience as keynote and breakout session speaker, my programs are known for a-ha moments, highlights of humor and tactical take-aways. More than motivation, my customized approach and message leave audiences with insights and practical strategies they can immediately apply. Check out my Most Requested Topics page to see which program will help you to achieve your event’s goals.
