Who Am I?
Since we’ve probably never met, I suppose the goal of this page is to see if I can help you “get” me in just a few paragraphs. First of all, if you love this website and it makes you feel happy, you already know a lot about me. I’ve done my best to make it a reflection of who I am, what I love, and how I want to support you.
So what do you need to know about me? First things first…I’m a doer, an entrepreneur with a very strong work ethic. I don’t sit still well, and tend to dive into projects with both feet (sometimes even before I know exactly what the plan is). Action is a key word for me. I work too hard, but I work for myself so that’s okay.
Making a difference in the lives of everyone with whom I come into contact is what drives me, and my best days are the ones where someone has a huge breakthrough on a coaching call or sends me a Facebook message thanking me for something they learned from me that made a difference in their lives and businesses. The money is great. The freedom is great, but without this component, I’d quit tomorrow.
In 2009 I (finally) met the love of my life, John. We had almost seven amazing years together before he passed away on February 7th, 2016, after a two and a half year long, very difficult battle with metastatic melanoma (yes, you can die from “skin cancer” and it’s a horrible death, so do us both a favor and make an appointment with your dermatologist TODAY. It only kills you if it gets inside you, but once it does your odds are not good and it’s one of the most aggressive cancers you can get).
Losing him has been the most difficult thing I’ve ever gone through. I chronicled our cancer journey together (and mine alone after he died) in a blog and am currently writing a book about it. Losing him changed me. It made me a better mentor and a better person. It taught me how to get through huge obstacles and challenges in my life and I use that new understanding to help my own clients now. When I am mentoring and coaching, I feel like John’s heart does the mindset and lifestyle side and my “get shit done” self does the strategy and execution stuff. It’s a great mix of soft and strong and I’m learning to embrace it more and more each day.
Just the Facts, Ma’am
Officially, here’s the business definition for who I am. I’m a business launch specialist and the founder of the “Leverage Your Superpower and Launch!” 7 step launch process, an ICF accredited life and business coach, and a badass, no B.S. business mentor. I help validated experts, change agents, and professionals define their processes, take their expertise online, position themselves to reach their ideal clients, and LAUNCH their programs online. I am also a communicator and I pretty much tell it like it is (a nice way to say this is that I’m “authentic”).
I’ve been told I have a “dynamic personality”(which is a nice way of saying I’m fun and sometimes a little loud). I know I’m very direct, approachable, and entertaining as a trainer. Since 2007, I’ve been blessed to have had the privilege of bringing my training to live corporate sales training events throughout the United States and Canada.
That pretty much covers it. I’d love to connect with you if you think you’d like to work with me. Click here to take my Virtual Rockstar Readiness Survey and then get on my calendar so we can chat or hit me up over on Facebook. You can also email me (not my assistant. This will come straight to me) at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to connect with you!
