Most of us are. We're connected 24/7 but never have we felt more isolated. We're running too fast, and piling on the to-dos without stopping to think about the why of our lives. I believe that we are all the hero of our own story, but a lot of us have forgotten how to take the lead role and set our course in the right direction. We can lose the plot - forget what our quest is - lose touch with what really matters.
It happened to me. I woke up one day in a story I didn't love. Tied to labels and roles that no longer fit. Completely out of touch with my creative voice. And beholden to beliefs that limited my sense of possibility for myself. But I found my way back to me. I rewrote the story I was telling myself, and I took responsibility for directing the role I had in the world. And you can, too.
Let me help.
My strength is helping people to see the biggest prospects for their growth, and re-imagine their life as a more authentic, meaningful story. A 19-year-old determines what vocational path to pursue. A 25-year-old millennial navigates a quarter-life crisis and emerges stronger and more confident. A mid-life mom refocuses her life lens now that the kids are off to college.
One way you can refocus your lens is by joining X Factory, a new community for women of all ages redefining how we converse, connect, and find meaning. To learn more about X Factory and get in on our next gathering, head over here. It's a powerful and uplifting way to be in the company of like-minded women, discovering new frameworks of seeing, and getting the encouragement we all need to go bigger and wider in life. You can read what people say about an X Factory experience over here.
I also work with individuals.
While everyone's starting point is different, essentially, I use a 3-step framework called Dream+Dare+Do. Dream is about getting clear on what you want to pursue right now. Do you need inspiration to go after a long-delayed passion? Are you in search of clarity around your career or vocation? We uncover your talents and see how they can be developed or applied more meaningfully. We'll identify your personal truth and strengths. We look at it from all angles and weave your experience, interests, and gifts into a new coherent vision of where you’d like to be. This is the foundation on which we will help get you in the right mindset to pursue these dreams, and act on goals that you will find joy in pursuing.
In Dare, we help you adopt a mindset of possibility. A mindset of growth and risk-taking, with me as your catalyst and advocate. I want you to take risks that move you outside your comfort zone and to the positive outer limits of your abilities. We talk through any fears and limiting beliefs and help you develop the grit and perseverance you need.
And finally, we Do - we create your action plan. I'll help you map out a series of small, achievable, inspiring steps. We'll also look at what skills you may need to develop further, as well as identify who you need to connect with, or be mentored by, in order to walk confidently forward - your compass newly pointed. We'll test, tweak, and celebrate the milestones along the way. And soon, when you look in the mirror, you’ll see that hero – the one you were always meant to be.
