But somewhere along the way of growing your career, everything else in your life has started to feel like it’s falling apart at the seams. You’re proud of all your accomplishments, but you’re exhausted and overwhelmed. It feels like the stress in your life is compounding every week.

It’s been far too long since you’ve felt vibrantly alive.

Being all things to all people is draining the life out of you. You’re frazzled to the core. You’ve lost touch with your bliss, your passions, your dreams and desires.

It’s time to change that… and I can help.

The No-Frills, Authentic Version

(PHOTO: With my son after completing our first 5k  -- which happened to be very messy & colorful.) 

I’m going to come clean with you right from the start.

I used to be an over-achieving, people-pleasing, perfectionist.

I served on lots of committees and boards – often times assuming leadership roles.

Having overcome a dysfunctional past, being offered these opportunities was a real ego booster; it energized me.

But gradually — then suddenly — I started feeling overworked, overwhelmed, and stressed out.

I was in a funk because the big 4-0 … and an empty nest …were looming.

I found myself in an incredibly toxic professional environment where my normal sunny disposition was cloaked by a dark veil of negativity; it was sucking the life out of me.

All this created a perfect storm that forced me to face the reality that some things needed to change… I needed to change.

After I did some serious soul searching about what I wanted my life to be, I stopped trying to prove myself and making everyone happy.

I let go of my fear of rejection.

I stopped continually comparing myself to others.

I started saying ‘no’ more than ‘yes’ and became very protective of my time.

I moved into recovery with my need for perfection and adopted the mantra, “Done is better than perfect.” (This came in really handy when I left my 18-year HR career to start my own business.... but that's another story!) 

I began treating myself with the same level of kindness that I showed others.

Today I am a high-achieving woman who is closer to 50 than 40. I have great relationships with my kids but really enjoy & appreciate my ‘empty nest’.  I embrace adventure and continually stretch my comfort zone – not to gain praise or recognition or to prove anything to anyone other than to myself. I say no to the good to make room for the great. I am actively moving my dreams to reality… a reality that is richly rewarding and fills me up.

I’m stressing less, achieving more, and taking time to savor life’s juicy goodness; I can help you to do the same.
