Q. Do you work with clients internationally?
A. Yes, I coach clients nationally and internationally by phone or webinar. Because of my speaking and travel schedule I do limit the number of business clients I accept into my program.
Q. How did you get started as a speaker?
When I wrote It Started with Pop-Tarts I knew I had to share what I learned through my alternative healing journey. And after 28 years in information technology consulting and professional sales, I was bored and ready for something new. My goal was to share my story to help teens and college students recover from eating disorders more quickly than I did (over 30 years).
After five years dedicated to teens, college students and eating disorders, I realized that wasn’t why I was put on this earth. I shifted my focus and incorporated my business skills as a consultant and salesperson. Now my focus is serving leaders and salespeople.
Q. What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a speaker?
A. Identify your passion. What message do you have to share that will motivate and inspire others? Who do you want to talk to? Do you have life experience or a professional background that will allow you to be credible in the field? Go do some test runs. Speak at a Rotary Club, Kiwanis, or local women’s groups. Ask for feedback from the audience. Hire a coach. I happen to know a great one! Schedule a Call
Q. Do you coach other speakers?
A. Yes. You can spend years and lots of money trying to figure it out on your own, or get connected with someone who can help you break through quickly. Schedule a call and we’ll explore how I can help you jump start your career as a speaker.
Q. How do you deal with obstacles, drama and adversity?
A. I live by a quote I learned from my mentor Bill Harris “Let everything be okay.” No matter what happens whether it’s what you expected or not, you’re on your path and life is playing out the way it’s supposed to. That phrase has completely changed my life. When one door closes, look for the new one that’s open. Banging, pounding and pushing is a waste of time. Remember, You have NO Limits!
Q. Who inspires you?
A. Jack Canfield, Wayne Dyer, Genevieve Behrend, Lynn Grabhorn, Dan Caro (drummer), Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla. Talented athletes with die-hard mental focus (Rafa Nadal, Michael Jordan, Andre Agassi, Tiger Woods). People living their dreams and fulfilling their purpose, people who never, ever give up.
Q. What’s with the wolves?
A. I love animals. Especially wolves and arctic dogs. I’m drawn to their independence, spirit and loyalty. Love their eyes, beautiful tails and howling. Hence the name Shewolf Press (my publishing company). Animals have so much to teach us about life and have incredible hearts and energy. My pack includes many Malamutes…as close as I can get to wolves.
