About MeHelping You Build Your Business
Where it started
Growing up on a family dairy farm and working as an automotive mechanic I was taught that the way to get ahead was through hard work. In college, where I received a degree in Environmental Science, hard work and studying all night was the way to get ahead. During the twenty-three years, I worked in the oil and gas industry, from technical positions to marketing/sales and management, long hours and skipped vacations were the way to the top.
Life was happening and I was missing it!
As an entrepreneur and business owner for the last twenty years missing out on family activities and working fourteen hour days seven days a week was the norm. I was trapped by the same lesson most of us were taught by well-meaning parents and teachers: that working hard was necessary to provide for my family. It was only later that I found this was not entirely true. And I see this with so many business owners. Failure, misery, pain, and suffering … all because they are so tied to running their business that their personal life gets sacrificed.
I found myself wanting more out of life and began searching for answers. I wanted to create a life worth living, not just making a living with no life. For the past decade, I have been on a journey of research, discovery and personal growth. I have had the honor to study many fantastic mentors, coaches, and teachers. Great thinkers and leaders such as Bob Proctor, Blair Singer, T. Harv Ecker, Jack Canfield, Keith Cunningham, Hawk Moon, Brian Tracey, and many others. I have experienced an amazing variety of information, experiences, and lessons.
Now I find my relationships with family and friends are filled with love. Money easily flows into our life. My entire life is full of abundance and joy. I jump out of bed in the morning and am excited to start my day. I love my life!
It is my desire to help others learn to live in joy and abundance. The gap between our potential and our achievement can be bridged, when you understand the power of your mind and decide you can be, do, and have whatever you can dream. Anything is possible if we dream it we can achieve it. There is greatness within you and when you allow me to guide you on your journey your wealth and abundance will show up. I can save you years of frustration and help you reach your dreams faster and easier.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Business Coaching?
Coaching gives you the tools, support, and structure to accomplish more. It’s a relationship – a partnership between you and your coach that inspires and supports you to be and do greater things.
Coaches use a variety of tools, approaches, and techniques to help you achieve your desired results. However, your results are ultimately up to you.
Coaching: With coaching, the belief is that everyone has the answers within themselves, they just need help accessing and identifying them. A coaching session includes a coach asking you thought-provoking questions until you come to the answer yourself. Ultimately, you are the expert on your life. It’s up to you to reflect upon the questions to move forward. Coaching is very effective when you are stuck or need clarity personally or professionally. It’s also great for keeping you focused, taking action, and accountable.
Mentoring: A mentor, on the other hand, provides wisdom and guidance based on their own lived experience. Mentoring may include advising and coaching.
Consulting: Coaching is not consulting. Consultants diagnose problems, prescribe and, sometimes, implement solutions. They do the work for you. Coaches support you as you do the work. They never do the work for you.
Counseling: Coaching is not therapy. Counselling looks at the underlying causes of emotional pain, dysfunction and mental health problems. It tends to deal more with the past. Coaching focuses on the future and encourages personal and professional development. Coaches are not (unless specified) qualified to diagnose or treat any health-related problems, although if the situation arises they may suggest you see a doctor.
Training: Training programs include a linear learning path that follows an established curriculum based on objectives set out by the instructor. Training programs focus on learning a specific skill. Coaching is customized to your situation and does not include a set curriculum.
How Can Coaching Help Me?
People hire a coach because:
- They want clarity around what is holding them back.
- They want to achieve a dream or goal.
- They want to grow personally and/or professionally.
- They want to see faster results than doing something on their own.
- They want someone to help keep them focused and accountable.
- They want to improve their performance or gain a new skill.
- They want to get out of their comfort zone and have someone there to guide them.
- And many more reasons…
There are as many ways a coach can help you as there are dreams and goals. It all depends on what you need. Ultimately, coaching can help you move forward faster and achieve the results you are looking for.
Statistically, you are 95% more likely to achieve your goals with the help of a coach.
How is coaching delivered?
One great thing about coaching is that it can be delivered in so many different ways. The process begins with a personal interview (either in person or online) to identify your current goals and challenges, define the scope of your relationship, identify priorities, and create
We can meet face-to-face (though this is rare), or online via a video Zoom conference or on the telephone> There may also be video or email support depending on the type of coaching package.
Because I offer coaching sessions via phone or via the internet, sessions can easily fit around your schedule.
You also can choose between individual sessions and group sessions (group sessions tend to be a bit cheaper than individual sessions).
How can I maximize my coaching experience?
