“ What you dream you make possible. What you believe you become. If you want to change your future, change what you believe.”Steven Fulmer
I have achieved almost every dream I set my mind to, including being the first in my family to graduate from college, becoming a VP by 35, driving across the country, learning to fly an airplane, skiing in the Alps, learning to sailing, owning a sailboat, traveling to Russia, falling deeply in love, creating a beautiful family, and identifying my life purpose, to name but a few.
With over 30 years experience in business, my first entrepreneurial adventure was at the age of 16 when I started a real estate photography business. By 35 I was a VP in a software company I joined as the second hire and played an instrumental role in growing from $300,000/yr. to more than $10 Million.
Today I am passionate about developing tomorrow’s personal and professional leaders. If we want a different result we must be willing to first take a different action. With the near epidemic proportions of unhappy employees, the need for personal and professional integration has never been more imminent. Note that I didn’t say work/life balance; I believe such a thing is both impossible and undesirable for we spend a disproportionate amount of our time working. Instead the goal is to integrate all aspects of life so we thrive at our careers & our personal lives equally as well, where we aren’t leaving a part of us behind as we spend our days at work wishing we where somewhere else... anywhere else; or trying to be home with our children while distracted by the things not getting done at work. Instead of balance, it’s the power of presence we seek.
After more than 30 years, I have honed my skills in public speaking, presenting, selling, teaching and coaching. I am a graduate of The Coaches Training Institute, and the 2012 President of the ICF Chapter Northwest Coaches Association I have also completed the candidate Fast Track with the National Speaker's Association.
