Sweet Spot

I love giving a group, team and/or an individual a wakeup call, a boost of energy, confidence, a shift in perspective to give them their mojo back. I love to kick off a program (coaching program, offsite, etc.)

How do you balance competition and cooperation with other business coaches?

We all bring something unique to our clients. I view every other coach as a potential collaborator. It helps our industry and there’s plenty of room for talented and high-integrity coaches.

What is your primary belief about creating success and abundance?

1. One, is that FINE is not nearly enough – Every one of my colleagues that were up in the towers that day would give anything for the chance to have our worst day. Don’t you dare settle for ‘fine’.

2. Two, You have the power to create that future that you want and there’s always a way. Don’t be a victim. Don’t get stuck looking back but instead look forward and say “What am I going to do with this gift that I’ve been given”

3. And Three, Don’t round up. Tomorrow starts today. Start with the smallest thing you can think of and do it. For me it was a 20 minute breakfast with my family. What’s it going to be for you?

What does leadership mean to you?

authenticity, self-expression and the courage to do what you feel is the right thing to do unapologetically, even if it isnt the most popular choice.

Who is your target market?

professionals looking to maximize their experience and performance while increasing their quality of life.

What do you most wish to gain from spending time with successful business coaches?

Insight and wisdom that will help me take my business and coaching to the next level, and fire, inspiration and challenge to play bigger.

How would you sum up your mission as a business coach?

My mission is to serve as The Human WakeUp Call™ for others – waking them up to new possibilities so they can unlock their potential, getting them to take inspired and courageous action, to live their life powerfully and on their terms, without losing another precious day.

What kinds of collaborations and co-creations with other coaches appeal to you?

I’m contemplating a radio/video show in the future and will want to showcase these extraordinary people. For my coaching company, I am always open to meeting extraordinary coaches who may want to subcontract on my coaching projects.

How do you believe you could add most value to a community of business coaches?

We all come from different experiences, background and perspectives. I may have built or experienced something that another LCC Member is looking to build and I’d love to share my own experiential wisdom with them. I also love motivating people and kicking people in the butt when they need some gentle fire.
