Something You Should Know:
When I’m not coaching, I’m painting. I’m obsessed with it. But, what’s perhaps even more fascinating is that my painting obsession, not so long ago, was birthed from one of our curated Friday night conversations. Curious? Read more about it in my blog and see if you have a passion you aren’t even conscious of: http://bit.ly/2nbhPxp
The key to happiness, no shift, is Personal Integrity. Is aligning your head (plan), your heart (your desire) and your body (actions). But see the species packaging, we are not so good at keeping promises to ourselves. Happiness, self-confidence and pride come from keeping promises to yourself that forward your dream.
One of my favorite taglines is (probably no surprise here) Maybe It’s You. And though it may seem like bad news, it’s truly not. Or at the very least, it’s the best bad news ever. You see, if you are responsible for the mess you’re in, you can get yourself out of it. Whew.
Please attach as many pictures of yourself as you can so we have some options to choose from. Preferably a headshot and some lifestyle and mood shots:
