"A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints." ~Wilfred Peterson 

Greetings to YOU and a Huge, Warm Welcome to our new Subscribers! 

Each year I invest in professional development by attending some kind of in-person live event training.  I just returned home from an amazing 5 day business adventure to Sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Fla where I was surrounded by other heart-centered women entrepreneurs who attended the "BE EnergyRICH" marketing Retreat with Heather Dominick.  It was so refreshing to step away from my everyday routine and receive fresh perspective both personally and professionally in a creative space that uplifted my spirit and nourished my soul.


The philosophy of combining business with personal growth and spiritual principles is at the heart my coaching practice.  It's about tuning into intuition and being guided along my path of purpose, asking to be shown the way.  I've tried "going it alone" in my life, which only led to exhaustion and burn out from working harder not smarter.  I'm amazed how just the right opportunities and people showed up when I surrendered my fear and asked faith to lead me.  (Talk about adventure!)


Ever noticed how often you have to let go in order to grow so something new can present itself?  Maybe it's someone who drains your energy, emotional baggage including old wounds, goals that no longer inspire you, or "shoulds" that make you feel guilty.  During this retreat I became painfully aware of an old hurt and intense anger that I needed to let go of because it was holding me back and creating dis-ease within me. (Confession: I looked up and said..."God, haven't we already been through this?!)"  Yes, healing has many layers.  And the truth is I'm still working on it.   


How about you? Ask yourself right now...Am I moving forward, or am I standing still?  Am I open to learning and growing or am I stuck in comfortable misery?  


We Retreat(Comfort Zone), Respond(Learning Zone), or React(Panic Zone) to circumstances in our life.  It's easy to see from The Synergy Coaching Model that the best way to be focused, happy and productive is to respond from the "Learning Zone".  Which zone are you in right now, and What's one action you can take that would help you really thrive, not just survive, in your work and life?  You may discover there's a negative belief or old pattern you are ready to let go of too.


My wish for you is to be open to new and exciting adventures.  And as always, I stand here ready and willing to inspire you confidently forward as you break old patterns, stepping up in faith to fulfill your potential.


Believing in YOU!

May You Embrace Life as an Adventure!

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore." Andre Gide


"Follow your bliss, and doors will open for you that you never knew existed. Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls." - Joseph Campbell


"It is never too late to be who you might have been."

- George Eliot

"The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience." - Eleanor Roosevelt


"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life and in change there is power." - Alan Cohen Quotes


The only question in life is whether or not you are going to answer a hearty 'YES!' to your adventure." - Joseph Campbell


"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

- Steve Jobs


"Don't die without embracing the daring adventure your life is meant to be." - Steve Pavlina


"Fortune sides with she who dares." - Unknown
