What are You Looking at?

Pretty isn’t it? It’s the view I get to see when I am at work. It’s close to some of my favorite places to eat,people I love and even great spots to nap. Since I do quite a bit of work from home, I get to enjoy the changes in the scenery all the time.

This time of year, the scenery changes almost daily. It is a huge perk to enjoy since my office can be anywhere I want it to be.

So, what are you looking at? I don’t just mean the scenery but what are you seeing when you look at your future, your role, your growth, your satisfaction, your potential?

Maybe you have a picture of just how you hope your career plays out but perhaps it hasn’t lived up to what is in your mind’s eye. Sometimes what we are looking at is far from what we’d like to see.

Not everyone can work from home but everyone should pursue earning a living in a way that makes them feel they are closer to the vision they see for their life.

Being your own boss is hard work. It takes discipline, determination and resilience, but the perks are not just in the scenery.

Here are FIVE advantages to earning your income as an entrepreneur:

  1. You get to choose where and how you will work
  2. You have unlimited earning potential. 
  3. You can create your own schedule.
  4. You can delegate the aspects of your job that you are not as skilled or interested in doing
  5. You can often choose who you serve.

What is it that you want to turn into an income stream?

What do you wish you could be doing instead of what you do to earn a living now?

Are you stuck trying to change the scenery of your life?

The reason I am so passionate about helping people earn income from a passion is because I know first hand the difference it can make for what you see.

It can make the difference between boredom and enjoyment; between being controlled and having control, between just going through the motions and moving in a planned direction and cetainly between earning a paycheck and securing a future.

Right under your eyes, the colors are changing daily but is that view of your future changing as well?

Do you like what you see or are you worried and frustrated when you look at your future?

Everyone’s career goes through periods of peaks and valleys similar to the changing seasons, but if you have stayed in one season too long and can’t seem to visualize how to create the changes you want to see, it’s time to take some serious action.

Sometimes you only need a different perspective; sometimes you need a totally different view. Either way, you can decide what you are looking at.

Finding Your Founder Story

In the movie, The Founder, Michael Keaton plays Ray Kroc the entrepreneur who created the chain of McDonald’s restaurant.Kroc was an ordinary salesman who had a vision of how to take a single McDonald’s and automate it for expansion.

Some see Kroc as ruthless, self-serving and conniving, but if you look closer what you will see is a man with a laser focused vision of what could be something bigger.

Think back over a time you saw an opportunity for something to move forward but decided you weren’t the one to do that.I have had my own can honestly say there is  a moment of reckoning in sitting back and waiting for someone to take the lead that will drive clarity into your soul.

Once you have missed the opportunity, you seldom will let another pass you by.

Now, I am not suggesting you become ruthless and develop a renegade attitude when it comes to growing a business, but I tell many of my clients that most new businesses are offsprings of some other person’s failure to expand or move into a new arena.

Think about some of these:

Car Washes

Beauty Salons

Tutoring

Babysitting

Many have all evolved into:

Car Care Centers

Beauty Spas,

Academic Coaching Centers

Specific Child Care and Educational Settings

People saw an opportunity and grew it.

That’s what Finding Your Founder story is all about.

We don’t just take our dogs to a kennel anymore. Now there are doggie daycares!

We don’t go to the local market just to buy food, but can learn how to prepare recipes and take classes in eating more nutritionally!

We don’t just put an advertisement into the newspaper and hope to get customers, we become a social media machine!

Ever wish you could start a business or even grow a side income but feel like you have no great ideas?

LOOK AROUND YOU!

Your Founder Story is closer than you think.

Here are 5 tips to finding your Founder Story.

  1. Get a notebook and look at all the businesses you visit within a week. What do you really wish they could provide?
  2. List what’s wrong with some of the businesses you patronize and how you would “fix” those drawbacks.
  3. Identify 3-5 ways you could build on an exisiting business theme. ( E.g. Know someone who owns a vet practice? Do they also offer pet training or adoptions?)
  4. What idea have you heard someone mention they wish would come to fruition that you think you could make possible?
  5. What can you do quicker, more skillfully and with more intention than others who actually earn a living doing the same?

While I’m not suggesting stealing a colleague’s idea or creating a conglomerate competition, I know many people miss the obvious when it comes to finding their Founder Story; they simply don’t look at what’s right under their nose and make it better!

More new businesses are created around businesses that already exist but were taken a step or two further.

You know you have had ideas you never followed through with and perhaps if you had you would be sitting on a nice stash of case today.

Ray Kroc might be seen as callous and manipulative to those who aren’t really business saavy but to an entrepreneur, Ray was a game changer.

Everyone has a bit of game changer in their soul as well. What will you do with yours? 

The worst thing you can do is let the idea in you become the game changer someone else does.

.

Be like Ray. Take an idea to the next level. Start your Founder story before someone else tells it as theirs.

Man Overboard! Is it Time to Jump Ship?

 

The term, “jump ship” once referred to a crew member who chose to leave the rest of the ship’s crew without permission. Today it often refers to someone leaving one job for a different career.

Remember the beginning of 2017? Sure, that year is almost in the mirror. I bet you had all kinds of plans and dreams about what you would do to make 2017 different than the previous year.

Maybe one of those goals was to improve your career or even begin your own business.

You might even have been thinking about that way before 2017 rolled around but if you are like many people, those goals might still be dreams unrealized.

Even with the best of intentions, making big changes in the way we earn our income can be scary, unsettling, disruptive and confusing. Maybe you even wonder if jumping ship is right for you.

As much as you want to do something different, perhaps the reason you haven’t made the move is because you really don’t know if it’s the right time.

Here are 6 Ways to Know that it’s Time to Jump Ship

  1. Doing your job requires a compromise to your ethics or belief system(that’s a huge clue).
  2. You go through the motions to earn an income but really don’t feel any commitment to your job.
  3. The culture of where you work is toxic and makes you uncomfortable.
  4. You are no longer passionate or interested in learning new techniques to help you become better at your job.
  5. You feel miserable, unhappy or often just sad when you are working.
  6. Your skills and talents are not really being challenged or used effectively.

If you often experience any of these at your job, you really need to reconsider how to earn an income

Sure, you have bills to pay and commitments and responsibilities but to continue to work in a position that really goes against everything you believe is a recipe for disaster.

Work should be a part of our lives that contributes to our success and affords us opportunities to improve our lifestyle. Work should never be something we settle for that adds to our stress and impacts our health.

If you have been talking about and waiting to jump ship for longer than you care to admit, ask yourself how much more of your life you are going to waste straddling the fence of happiness because of fear, lack of confidence or because you haven’t created your jump ship plan?

It’s not too late to make 2017 the year you move ahead and never looked back. Sure, you can’t just walk away from income you need but you can begin to plan your exit so that you are ready to jump without worry of drowning.

The best things you can do while working in a job you really dislike are 

  • Identify what you would rather be doing to earn an income
  • Create a concrete plan to bring your goal to fruition by working with a coach who can offer you strategies and options towards reaching your goals quicker and with fewer obstacles
  • Spend a dedicated amount of time daily working towards your jump ship date
  • See your curent career/job as a catapult that can help you move in the direction you want.

If it’s time to jump ship, don’t wait until you drown or it sinks.

Be proactive. Take the leap.

 

I’ve helped many people “jump ship” and move from their day job to a earning their living doing something they love to do. I’d love to help you take the leap as well. Start by scheduling a no obligation complimentary 45 minute consult and let’s see how we can plan your exit.

Honestly, Me Too!

Have you had an experience similar to someone else and as they share their story, you reply, “Me Too!”?

Recently there has been a campaign on a social media site for anyone who has been sexually harassed or assaulted to share their experience by using the hashtag # MeToo.

We can have exclusive relationships but seldom totally exclusive experiences.

In fact I think many people feel victimized by experiences at work that are not even based on harassment or assault.

Do You Feel LIke A Victim At You Job?

A victim feels exploited,powerless,intimidated and often at the mercy of the circumstance.

I see this often with my clients.

Whether working in Corporate, Education, Health Care or even in blue collar work,many have had successful careers that hit a bump.

Some are frustrated with their lack of moving forward, some are burned out,some have become commodities, shuffled around and discarded as a company experiences change, some simply dread doing what they do but have to pay the bills.

Being a victim of your career is like going to work each day with a noose around your neck.

Although perhaps not a crime, many people suffer consequences of work experiences which actually change their lives.

One of my clients uprooted her family and moved four different times in 11 years in order to hang on to a position she enjoyed.After the fourth move, a new CEO arrived and made her life miserable,not the #MeToo kind of assault but one that scarred her nevertheless.Gradually she found herself in a position which constantly felt volatile.She was asked to work on assignments she was not qualified to do, handle situations she did not have experience with and take the fall for mistakes she hadn’t made. She was miserable and a trip to H.R. didn’t really do more than put a bad taste in the CEO’s mouth.

She was let go after a buy out by a larger organization. It was both a blessing and a curse as she works to start her own company now.

Another client I am working with has been miserably cornered into a position with no advancement in sight because of a change in policy at the top.

I know what it is like to be in a “me too” career experience.I left a job I enjoyed because a strong union presence supported a position rather than their members.When I wanted to move into a part time position and a fellow untenured colleague wanted my full time position, we were not permitted to switch even though we were both qualified,simply based on the premise that the union did not support non-tenured individuals in a permanent position.

It should have worked out for both of us, but it didn’t.

Looking back it was a stepping stone for me as I began to work as an entrepreneur.So,yes I can honestly say, “Me too” when I talk about being frustrated at work, but also as an entrepreneur.

I understand the struggles of a start up.I honestly can identify with trying to raise a family, figure out how to make ends meet and wonder where your next client will come from.I have definitely experienced the “me too” even to the point of taking a big financial hit when one of my contracts ended.

I know you are scared about starting something new.I also know you are desperate to move into work that is meaningful and interesting to you.

How do I know? It would be easy to say I have been there and done that, but if you:

  • Have ever wondered if you can move into work you love while staying in a job you don’t 
  • Worry you will ruin yourself financially
  • Keep telling yourself things are going to get better at work
  • Dread Monday mornings
  • Would leave in a heartbeat if you knew things would work out

Well, guess what? “Me Too!”

I have experienced all those feelings.That’s why I can relate to my clients. I HAVE been where you are and I KNOW those feelings well.

I know you wonder how to possibly create a side income stream while trying to juggle all your responsibilities and a job.

I know you are afraid you will tip your family’s finances.

I know you feel overwhelmed and can’t figure out what to do first.

I know you are anxious about what will happen to you at your job while you try to create your business.

I know. “Me Too”.

The best place to start is with someone who HAS had that experience. I can relate because I have been there as well. I also have had an opportunity to work with exceptional coaches, mentors and advocates who have helped me reach the success I have had, so I know the value of having that kind of support.

Don’t think you are alone.More than 57% of American workers are dissatisfied at their jobs and more than 68% want to create their income as an entrepreneur. I would say that’s a lot of “Me Too’s!”

Being an entrepreneur did change my life and I know it can change yours as well.

I’d love to show you how to grow a side business that could become your main source of income. I know that can happen. It did to me too!

You’re Too Old To Do That!

https://kathybrunner.com

Over 40? You’re probably too old to be a Prima Ballerina or pitch for the MLB.

You won’t be invited to try out for the Rockettes and unless you are a Veteran you are most likely too old to work for the CIA or FBI.

There’s a good possibility that you are too old to start to train for the Olympic Gymnastics team unless you’re planning for the senior team and still ordering the kid’s meal because it’s cheaper and you can justify eating fewer fries, well you’re just TOO OLD TO DO THAT!

But, you are not too old to change careers, start a business, learn a new trade, start a new hobby or create a plan for making the rest of your life the best of your life.

Clients often ask me if they are too old to start a business.

John Pemberton developed the recipe for Coca- Cola at age 55, Colonel Sanders created his recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken at 63 and at age 71, Lucille Green became Visiting Angels oldest Franchisee.

 Think You Are Too Old To Do That?

Being successful is a combination of mindset, determination and good planning. People with experience often have the best chance of having those three criteria.

Being over 40 generally means you have a clearer perspective about what you really want in life.You have most likely faced enough disappointment to have a better sense of what’s important and what really is just another bump in the road.

I think the biggest drawback for people over 40 is thinking too much time has already been wasted.

Are You Too Old To Move On?

Coming out of college in debt, maybe you thought that money would be a great incentive towards enjoying your work.

But, money doesn’t buy happiness and that career you trained for can become a landmine of disillusionment in just a few years.More than 1 in 3 graduates regret the major they chose and  Over 50% of Americans are disengaged at their job. 

But you stay. Because you have responsibilities, bills, dependents and a fear you are too old to do anything else.

You stay at a job you dislike because you believe someday it will be better; when you get promoted,when you make more money, when your boss retires, when the company lands that big client.

In your heart, you know you want to do something else.You have a vision for how you want to earn your living.You know where and how you want to work.You just need it to be the right time and then you will leave.

But the right time never comes. There is always another excuse to stay.

You are afraid you won’t find the time to create the work you love while you work at the job you don’t.You are afraid your idea doesn’t have merit.You are worried you will be taking too big of a risk, worried no one will take you seriously, worried you are too old.

I’ll let you in on a little secret: you get older every minute whether you start now or later.

You’re only too old for something if you wait until you’re too old to discover it, pursue it and enjoy it.(Okay, maybe enjoying the kid’s meal fries is not something anyone is too old for).

Age is a number.Waiting is a decision.

Let me show you how to grow your dream job while still working at your day job.Schedule a complimentary 45 minute consult today. You’re not too old to do that!

The Most Dangerous Word in the World

You might think of words like love, hate, betrayal, when you think of dangerous words but I have seen first hand how the word, “Someday” can truly the be the most dangerous word in the world.

We have all heard that saying,”Someday is not a day of the week.” but more importantly, someday connotes that there is a wish, a dream, a desire,waiting like an invitation you can’t or won’t open.

What someday really means is that you are “Making a date to wait”.

What are some dates to wait are on your “someday” list?

Maybe it is:

  • Finishing school
  • Trying out a new idea
  • Getting some medical testing
  • Ending a relationship or starting a new one
  • Cleaning out that basement
  • Looking for a better job
  • Getting treatment for an addiction

“Someday” has no beginning it just hangs out there like an unreachable opportunity, waiting and waiting but not really getting you anywhere closer.

“Someday” is dangerous because we don’t have forever and so often we wait until that “someday” when we think the stars will align…and we wait and wait, maybe until we finish a degree, the kids get older, we finally settle down, we move into our own place. Maybe you are waiting until you feel you have more money, more time, more resources,when perfect rolls around.

Here are some BIg Problems with “Someday.”

It is Too Indefinite to be the right time

Too Ambiguous to be the right place

Too Impractical to be the right opportunity

I know everyone has a “someday”. It’s wonderful to dream for the future but when there is no plan to really make that “someday” take place, that dream is futile and the future is not really going to change anything.

I talk with people all the time who are restless, unsatisfied, disappointed, fearful, reluctant and stressed and do you know WHY?

Quite often it is because they have made a date to wait. They sense a need to move forward and DO something but they continue to sabotage themselves by designating their goals to “someday.”

They are not on purpose, about purpose or for a purpose but rather stuck in the oblivion of sensing a need but deciding to address it “someday.”

The only absolute someday we will ALL know is death. That’s a pretty lousy date to be waiting for.

Your “someday” may seem safe but maybe it’s really just another excuse.

Haven’t you really been dating waiting too long?

Stop making a date for wait and Start making a date for GREAT.

 

If you have always wanted to do more with your life and sense a bigger purpose and future. Please join me for a FREE TELESEMINAR on Thursday September 28 to learn how to create  A Bigger, Bolder, Brighter Purpose NOW instead of “Someday.”

I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Your Someday Needs to Start NOW

In the 1989 blockbuster, Field of Dreams, Archie Graham says, “We just don’t recognize life’s most significant moments while they’re happening. Back then I thought, “Well, there’ll be other days”. I didn’t realize that that was the only day.”

Certainly we have all had moments when we tell ourselves, “Someday I am going to_____,” or “ Someday there will be time for___.”

For many people, someday is as elusive as holding time in a jar. Just when we think our someday has arrived, we discover we missed the moment.

You know the drill. You have goals and dreams, aspirations and intentions. A circumstance pulls at your heartstrings, an experience inspires new direction, you hear, see or take part in something that rattles a nerve and more than ever you want to roll up your sleeves and get started.

You want to start that project, compose that music, write that book, teach that course. You’ve heard the voices and believe you can really make a difference. You want more than ever to “build it” so they will come, BUT…

You realize you have a job, a mortgage, a family and a couple hundred of other commitments. NOW does not look like the time to commit to anything more. You curb your passion but not without telling yourself that “Someday” you will be there to take up the ownership of building it again.

Field of Dreams was fictitious and yet touched the hearts of anyone who has ever had a dream. It’s second nature to want your life to matter, your actions to create change, your behavior to have purpose.

When we don’t create that change, realize that purpose or sense that we matter, we make excuses,all types of excuses, from telling ourselves we are not smart enough,old enough,young enough to convincing ourselves the time was off, we need to wait until the children are grown,we save enough money, we finish school,retire,get healthy, relocate or take more time to think it through.

Ray tells his wife Annie in the movie, that his father never did anything spontaneous in his entire life and that he is afraid he is becoming his father.

We do much the same. We see dreams die around us daily, but for some reason we continue to exchange our NOW for Someday.

It’s as though we are cursed with a clock that will never be suitable for growing our purpose.

We resign ourselves to what might have been and continue to wait for the next NOW to become a Someday again.

Our purpose can change at different times of our life but to continue to defer a purpose often results in living in monotony, wondering if that truly is all there is.

I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard people say, “ I just wish I would have done this sooner,” when they talk about finding the purpose they were meant to live out.

Missing a chance to fulfill a purpose often sets up a pattern of delayed joy, peace and satisfaction. Life becomes a treadmill of more of the same and we realize we have shelved dreams, plans,goals and hopes for a someday that really never gets any closer.

Archie is right. Sometimes today is the only day. Your purpose is calling, but you may have turned a blind eye so many times that you can’t even discern what it is.

Have you been waiting on a someday that has no intention of arriving?

Are you stuck between excuses and a lack of direction about what you are really being called to accomplish?

Did you once want to “build it” but never did and now you hardly know how to put anything together again?

How different would life be if you could harness that purpose and “build it”, “grow it”,“share it”,“live it”?

I hope you will join me for a FREE TELESEMINAR on Thursday September 28.

Make Your Someday Start NOW. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Why You Suck at Living Your Purpose

 

Ever wonder why you suck at really living your purpose?

A great many people suck at living their purpose,so you are in good company.

There are many reasons living your purpose escapes you. Here are just a few reasons why you might spend your life pursuing something you view as elusive.

1. You Don’t Think You Are Worth a Unique Purpose (You spend your life second guessing your dream so instead of developing practical applications you develop intentional excuses.)

2. You Give Others Permission to Live Your Life (If you feel like your choices will “rock the boat”, you defer what you want and resign yourself to accepting what others want for you.)

3. You Fear if You Fail at Your Purpose You Won’t Get Another Chance (You set the bar to perfect but resign yourself to inertia rather than taking a chance and making a mistake)

4. You Are Overwhelmed by Your Own Ideas (You have convinced yourself your “Ah HAH moment should be “Oh No!”)

5. The Idea of Having a Unique Purpose Feels Selfish (Spending time cultivating your true purpose feels too indulgent and self serving)

6. You Have Allowed Life To Give You What It Wants Rather Than What You Need(It’s easier to just go with the flow than make waves, even if you are settling for a destination you really aren’t thrilled about achieving.)

The list goes on and on.

We suck at living our purpose because we think doing so is contradictory to what we are supposed to be doing.

We suck at living our purpose because we put self imposed constraints and parameters on how far and wide we allow ourselves to create ripples, especially if those ripples rock stable expectations.

We confuse purpose with the role we are currently in.We tell ourselves our purpose  is to be a good mother, father or friend and have trouble seeing beyond that.

We train ourselves to believe our purpose should arise from our life’s work.

Often we believe we only have a single purpose rather than realizing our purpose can change at different stages of our lives.

And the real tragedy is

Purpose comes in many sizes and shapes. A purpose can affect a nation or a single person.Our purposes are not defined by one specific skill or talent as much as by a driven passion.

Having talked with many people who discovered their purpose,I know once you realize your purpose, you will never go back to a life that omits or minimizes it again.

Some people seach all their lives for a purpose right under their nose.

What about you? Are you committed to a purpose or still trying to run it down?

Did you have a purpose you let slip through your fingers or give up a purpose to appease someone?

Are you stifling your purpose because you imagine it would be monumental to really live it?

On Octobert 9, I will be offering an intensive 6 week program on identifying and living your true purpose. If you ever wanted to make sure you didn’t miss out on what you were really supposed to do with your life, this program is for you.

CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ON PURPOSE

You can’t play a bigger game if you don’t know the stakes or how to position yourself and you’ll never win if you don’t give yourself permission to play.

Living in Your Designer Genes

You have designer genes.I am sure of it. Everyone does, but like most people, I really didn’t discover mine in a way I imagined I would.

What are designer genes?

It might be a skill that comes so naturally you barely realize its uniqueness.

It might be an obsessive passion that distracts you or a talent that comes out in every situation.

Or those designer genes might lead you to a much desired goal fulfilling a dream.

Your designer genes can be quiet and subtlety persistent or demanding and constantly nagging for your attention.

I remember how I discovered my designer genes.I thought I would have discovered them as a young graduate about to begin a paid professional career, but it wasn’t then.

It wasn’t when I won a writing contest in college or when my first book was published.It wasn’t even when a best selling author who I had never met wrote the foreword.

It wasn’t when I was invited to speak at national events or when I was interviewed for radio or TV.

Those were special opportunities but not ones that really tapped into my designer genes.

But, many years ago, when my friend dreamed of opening an art gallery and I helped her do just that,something was awakened and now working with a middle aged single mother who has gained enough confidence to leave a miserable job and start her dream business I know I am using my designer genes.

I recognize I have as much of a passion to help others launch a dream as I have for myself.

My designer genes are to help others discover and optimize their designer genes.

Have you determined what your designer genes are? Are they playing a part in your life?

Sometimes our designer genes evolve through a job, sometimes they show up in a hobby or specific interest. Your designer genes might keep pulling you to a specific issue that moves your heart and soul or they might be lurking quietly in an unsuspected activity waiting for you to acknowledge them.

But they are there!

Every person has a specifically “designed” purpose.Often when people are frustrated at their job, unhappy in their relationships or discontented with their current situation it’s because they haven’t really fired up their designer genes and created a plan for optimizing those genes in their lives.

In his article,The psychology about why we want to change the world”, Mark Fishbein quotes from the author Matt Ridley’s book, The Origins of Virtue.“Living things are designed to do things that enhance the chances of their genes or copies of their genes surviving and replicating,” 

You’ll enjoy much more of your entire life when you are in touch with your designer genes and you allow them to bloom.

Have you been thinking that maybe it’s time to really develop an action plan for your life and start getting in touch with what you were meant to truly do?

It might be a career, business, hobby or activity.

It might be a book you are meant to write, a charity you are meant to start, a business you were cut out to develop or even an action you were born to take.

That’s why I have created ON PURPOSE, a 6 part online course coming this Fall. Because until you really use your designer genes,you miss the best of your life.

Have you discovered your designer genes?

Are you using them in a way that fulfills you?

I Wanted to be a Man…and Help Create World Peace!

Ever watch the movie, MR. DEEDS? Adam Sandler who plays Deeds, asks people what they wanted to do with their lives.Many of the people in the  audience shout out what they wanted to be earlier in their life.From veterinarians to fireman, everyone had a thought about what role they wanted to play and one woman even shouted out,” I wanted to be a man!”

Mr. Deeds.

No doubt you’ve often thought about the changes you would make if you could go back and “re-do” certain moments in your life. Everyone seems to have an idea of what they wish they would have done.

Did you want to write a book,open a business, create a charity,develop a cure,maybe just do something you always dreamed of doing?

Did that happen? Did you end up doing just want you always dreamed you would do?

Somewhere in the wheel of life, we often get sidelined. We end up going throught he motions but often we’re not really invested in what we are doing.

Often like  a mouse in a wheel, we realize we aren’t really getting closer to what we want, infact we might be getting further away from what our goals really were going to be.

.

Often those reasons become our excuses for why we no longer are doing what we really want to do.

Did you want to be a fireman or a stock broker?

Did you dream of creating a movement that would impact future generations?

Did you dream of opening an art studio or did you want to rescue animals?

Did you imagine you would be on the front page of a journal or think you might be the head of a non profit?

Did you simply want to be a better person than the one you have living inside you?

You are not alone and it is not too late.

When you know you are not doing what you feel called to do it is frustrating, monotonous and leaves you constantly searching for more.

Yes, you may have been called to be a parent, a teacher, a dog walker or a student but do you feel like there is still something left to do, something undone besides the role you currently play that needs dicovered, addressed and developed?

And, how do you make the time to really be and do what you want to be and do?

What if you are not sure what your calling is but are pretty certain it is not what you are doing, how do you determine what your purpose really is?

That’s why I am offering a 7 week online course for people who want to get out of the funk they are in and finally create an action plan that gets them living the purpose they were meant for.

It might be too late to be a professional ballerina or the next rock star but it is not too late to live out your true purpose.

Each of us is gifted with a unique skill set. Spending each day not having a chance to use what we are best gifted to do is a prison for our souls.

Maybe you still want world peace? So let’s do something to make that happen!

Want to discover your wicked awesome calling?

and Finally create a plan to do what you were meant to do?
