How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Transformation Business Coach?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to take action on starting their dream business while transitioning out of their 9 to 5. That defining moment in my life happened in the summer of 2008.
This happened after my father told me that his cancer had come back after being in remission for a year. I had a conversation with my father about his life, which was filled with so much love. He told me that he felt that he’d accomplished everything that he set off to do in this world. At this time in my life, I was working on the last semester of my MBA, raising a young child, and my marriage was falling apart. The conversation left me with a lot of questions about life and how it works. I was worried that I wouldn’t be prepared to say that I had accomplished everything I had set out to in my own life.
I felt out of touch with my emotions, numb to myself.I was hit with a ton of bricks, and all I could do was worry about not losing my job which was already on the brink. I had a realization that there had to be more to life than what I was living. My father was leading by example on how to live a life in happiness. I started to believe and open up to the idea that you could create happiness in your career, just like my father had.
After my father passed away, I felt massive fear about being visible. I ended up losing my job, getting a divorce, and falling into a dark place emotionally. I had two separate people recommend reading the book The Secret to help me ease the pain during this tough time.
After reading this book, I felt like a light switch had been turned on.
As a result, I started a new job which bridged the gap during this transitional time. However there was an underlying nagging feeling that I was not living my purpose in my professional life. I decided there must be something more.
I started seeing a pattern that people were comfortable enough to share with me deeply personal information, and I was excited about that. It gave me a sense of fulfillment to feel gratitude from others for my advice and tips. I observed people would feel sad or angry when they approached me, and left feeling happy and content. I noticed I was going to work, doing a great job, but felt like there was no fulfillment.
I concluded it was time for a career change.
I enrolled in a leadership program and coaching institute, took my power back, and got into a deep level of awareness. After the program, I went back to work a new person. Everything changed in my life and I knew that I could teach others to change their lives in the same way.
I decided that I would work in the corporate world, and build my coaching business concurrently. I still had hesitation about leaving the comforts of a 9 to 5 job, but knew it wasn’t where my heart was. I opted to set my own transition date to fully move into my coaching business. In a moment of synchronicity, my position was outsourced to another company within 4 days of my transition date. I discovered if you really put your mind to something, things could work out in your favor. I took ownership of everything in my life, and as a result life worked to my advantage.
I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other women transition into successful entrepreneurship.
I’ve worked with many private clients and the fact that I get to create my schedule and work from anywhere adds a little more fun to my routine. I especially enjoy being at the beach where I get to relax with a good book and enjoy the sound of waves crashing into the sand after working with clients. And as I reflect on how far I have come, I strongly believe that women shouldn't have to feel alone or take a long time to manifest their dream business and live life according to their terms. Having a business that feels authentic to who they are while being able to support their desires, their loved ones, and having the flexibility to travel the world or the freedom to enjoy every aspect of their life in their own unique way is a worthy goal.
It’s doable and should be validated.
Having a successful business isn't reserved for a few people. And my passion led me to create “A Clear Path to Your Profitable Business” a 7-step system every aspiring entrepreneur in their 9-5 job needs to apply, to create a solid foundation for their business so that they can transition from their job confidently.
Who are your clients?
I work with people just like you who are coachable to new concepts, committed to living your desired lifestyle, and ready to start now. I am passionate about working with women to get them out of being stuck and get them into an awareness level that leads to action. This comes from being in an inspired place and getting clear on your purpose and passion.
We then transform that into a business idea and get clear about your ideal clients. We work on transforming your mindset from “employee” to “entrepreneur”.
This will give you the confidence on how to take action and navigate obstacles that arise and gives you a solid foundation for your business. My clients feel a clear understanding of who they are, and what they actually want.
My program is designed to help people avoid common mistakes when starting a business, which optimizes your start up time.
I provide a practical framework to give you the mindset to move forward.
What makes you different from other “Transformation Business Coaches”?
My journey to get my business up and running from idea to paying clients to eventually transitioning from my 9-5 job was anything but a straight line. My learning curve was longer than it needed to be. I went through many courses that overpromised and underdelivered. There were blessings in disguise because I got to see what the real needs of someone who already has a busy schedule are.
I like an open and honest culture where integrity is of utmost importance. There are no get-rich-quick-schemes.
You will put in some work and I promise you, it’ll be totally worth it.
Although we will occasionally touch upon time management and other “business coach- y” things, we will work on the inner and outer principals for success and look at your business and from a holistic perspective. I’m sensitive to the fact that you’re a busy professional and sifting through volumes of information isn’t appealing. What that means to you is that you get a flexible coach who is your number one cheerleader.
I will hold your hand when it gets difficult and also hold you accountable as we move through bite size learning and a clear simple system.
I’m concerned with how to get your foundation strong and creating a solid transition plan to give you the best chance at success.
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
The Turn Your Passion & Purpose into Your Profitable Business workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about starting their business, replacing their income and transitioning out of their 9-5 job– it means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I’m overwhelmed, I don’t know what steps I need to take to start.”
They were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to creating your profitable business, replacing your income & finally leaving your job.
Being a go-getter myself, I’m known to work best with other go-getters, people who are committed to their success no matter what…who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to start your business. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!”
Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to replace your income and transition out of your job.
You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal of having your own profitable business.
For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)
The Turn Your Passion & Purpose into Your Profitable Business programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away.
It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK.
We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself 3 favors:
Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your “A Clear Path to Your Profitable Business” system assignments and the BIG picture. Once you start seeing the clients come in regularly as a result of our work, you can then start reducing the hours you work at that other job and focus on your own practice.
Make a point to join the Facebook Group for inspiration and tips that will give you LOTS to think about.
Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work.
When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.)
Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. It’s only fair, right?
What exactly is “A Clear Path to your Profitable Business” TM system and what does it include?

You’ll learn the rules of life and how you can play a powerful game to get you the results that’ll move you forward. Most importantly, it’ll answer the overall question: how do I create my profitable business?
Here’s what the System gets you to do:
1. Nail Down Your Profitable Business Idea
Identifying your life’s purpose is the starting point to creating the lifestyle of your dreams. You'll learn that with a clear purpose, you can create the right plans and set specific goals that will position you for success in your life and business. You’ll have clear direction on what steps to take every day. We’ll do this by identifying your specific purpose, if you haven’t already, so you can save years of frustration and gain the confidence to make decisions like a pro.

Together, we’ll navigate how to make money a byproduct of your purpose so you can design your business to scale for long term success.
2. Laying the foundation for your life + business
Sometimes, in order to get from “here” to “there” requires a paradigm shift – a shift in your thinking. You will discover the concepts behind the principles that govern reality and how to apply them to your life with more clarity and certainty. Building your business from a place of fullness (gratitude) versus lack is critical so that you can connect to your message and the value you want to create for your clients or customers. Therefore, cultivating an attitude of “willingness” will amplify and fast track your success so that you don’t have to second guess yourself every step of the way. You’ll quickly get clarity to confidently take inspired action that gets the results you want when relying on conventional wisdom doesn’t cut it. You’ll understand the difference between creating from your “heart space” and “mind” --- and why you need to engage both for faster results. You’ll learn to make tweaks you need to make to maintain mental alignment so you can continue to make progress even when the “going gets tough”
3. Unlock your true power – Shift your current relationship to building your business
Learn to uncover fears & limiting beliefs and adopt critical behaviors that support business growth. You'll stop holding yourself back from the success you want. Together, we’ll decode your current mindset so you can stop putting unnecessary pressure on yourself. You’ll discover the exact beliefs to embrace so you can have a clear path to bringing forth your truest values. From this place, it’ll be easier to create from a place of abundance and live a life full of direction, meaning and joy.
4. Build momentum with inspired action
This step details the critical role “action” embodies in building your business and when to take it. You’ll truly understand what taking inspired action is so you can confidently complete tasks. You’ll learn why it’s challenging to manipulate your reality with action alone and what exactly to do about that. We’ll work through helping you draw from your own power you to create the life and business you’d like to experience starting now.
5. Managing uncertainty along the way – how to blow off your resistance
You’ll learn to understand the role of procrastination, resistance and perfectionism in creating your business and how to reframe and adopt a new perspective so you can take responsibility for your choices. Together we’ll take a deep dive and cover the importance of a growth and success mindset in order to take things to the next level in your life and business. You’ll discover why the mind can be reluctant to change and how to work around that with greater joy, ease and grace in your journey. You’ll also learn the delicate dance with creativity so you can transition from your job to your business at a pace that feels good to you.
6. Demystifying business success – a look at what’s behind the scenes of our money issues
Making money and running a business doesn’t have to be hard. This step covers a different approach to increasing financial success, quickly. You’ll learn the motivating factors that drive your relationship with money so you can develop a solid connection with it. Money is typically never the problem. It’s just a symptom and digging deep into this will help resolve any issues so making financial decisions doesn’t have to be a problem. You’ll also discover the quickest way to integrate traditional business advice in a non-conventional way so you can create your own unique approach that works for you.
7. How best to design your life and business
Starting your business isn’t like going to school. It requires a different set of skills to work. We’ll cover why it’s critical to create your business consciously, so you can redefine what success means to you while using your current job or situation as a stepping stone or investor in your budding business. You’ll get clarity about your business and life process so you can nail the critical components of how you want your business structured. You’ll discover ways to reevaluate your goals to stay true to your purpose. This piece will also allow you to build your business from the inside out so you can enjoy simple and effortless creation.
Does this really work?
Yes! The result of our work is an approach to shifting your mindset and a simple clear step-by-step solution to creating a solid foundation for your profitable business. See my testimonials here.
What results can I expect?
Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar situation. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.
How quickly can I expect results?
That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to go and create the solid foundation for their business in a very short time frame, sometimes even a few weeks while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on where you are with your business idea. If you have one, you can move faster versus someone who we have to nail their business idea.
How can I guarantee myself that I will launch my business, replace my salary and exit my job in record time?
Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of A Clear Path to Your Profitable Business system have successfully created an exit plan, shifted their mindset in much less time than they would have on their own AND have created and launched their business.
