I’m going to come clean right from the start…

I don’t have a magic pill for you.

What I do have is a ton of experience making mistakes.

The route I took to get here was full of bumpy roads, distractions and detours. There haven’t been any straight lines and there’s been nothing glamorous or sexy about it.


Failure served as a beautiful teacher to help me build resilience, tenacity, and valuable knowledge along the way.

Steep learning curves helped me to develop empathy for those whose confidence is waining even though they have more than enough talent to achieve their goals.

Trial & error led me to discover my zone of genius in helping other women birth, nurture, and raise their entrepreneurial dreams.

How can you use all of this to your advantage?

Like Groucho Marks so wisely said, “Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.”

You don’t have to make the same mistakes I did.

Place your focus on the destination and I’ll help you navigate your way there; consider me your personal GPS.

I’ve been traveling this road long enough to know which shortcuts are filled with hazards and dead ends and which ones get you where you want to go more quickly.

I can balance you out and keep things in check so even on the craziest stretches of road you won’t experience a case of road rage or get stuck in the break down lane.

I know when it’s time to step on the gas and when to apply the brakes.

I know where it’s safe to let down your guard… and when you need to ‘lock the doors’.

I know about dangerous blindspots and shine a spotlight on them at every turn.

In short, having me in the passenger seat — right along side you on this journey — will make your trip a whole lot quicker and easier, not to mention, more scenic and fun.

(I’ll even let you pick the radio station.)
