When your business is built on who you are, there is no competition.


I learned that a long time ago—which is partially why coaching became my passion.

You see, we live in an era where replication and restlessness is constantly muddling the mission of our work … everyone wants to be the next so-and-so, right?  I believe you need to be the next YOU. It’s time we get brave, be ourselves, and build our businesses sustain-ably.

That’s where the real value is—and it’s more simple* than it sounds. (*and a challenge to figure out sometimes, but that’s why I’m here!)

We’ve gotten very good at assessing our need for certain kinds of help.  We hire nannies. We see doctors. We have housekeepers, mechanics and even the yard men who ensure our sprinklers are set appropriately to the season. But, when it comes to our businesses and careers, many of us find it necessary to trial-and-error our way through it, never thinking about how a coach and some much-needed clarity could really be helpful.

I found my niche in the world when I realized I could combine my knack for strategy with my expertise in learning design to guide entrepreneurs, coaches and consultants in creating businesses that leverage their own personal genius. Our work is quite often a labor of love, but how often are we defining our businesses by what we do instead of who we are? We’ve had it backwards for far too long.

By working with me, you’ll flip your business on its head (In the best way!) to unearth the vision it so desperately needs to become a prosperous, fulfilling and naturally, free-flowing part of who you are.

Because of coaching, I’m more confident about trusting my intuition. In general, I’ve made some bolder, ‘riskier’ decisions because I’ve increased the confidence I have in myself and my abilities. Jeannie helps me gain a better understanding of my own core competencies and work style.
