My secret sauce? Yep. I have one...
1- My team strengths and expertise in different areas.
2- My leadership training and employee development programs consider the symbiotic nature of the mind-body connection and its impact on performance, leadership, and decision making. Because of this, I can guarantee that transformation in relationships, results, and revenue will happen.
3- I have learned how to access my "inner-tools." As a Mindfulness practitioner and my own personal journey to enhance my health, energy, and performance, I understand how to "hack" our biology and psychology to meet the challenge of living a "productive" life, fight back the effects of stress, and self-lead to become an effective leader. I bring those tools to a robust and whole-self training program that will shift a person and a workplace environment.
All training, coaching, and retreats for Strengthen-TheTeam™ | StrengthenHER™ | Strengthen-TheLEADERSHIP™ | Strengthen-TheSalesTeams™ and LeadershipBIOHACKING™ integrate evidence-based strengths psychology, emotional intelligence, health and wellbeing principles, alongside the neuroscience of multiple brain integration, and mindfulness.
My business mission statement:
To provide our corporate and individual clients with an innovative, science-backed and applicable strengths-based development program improving ROI, relationships, and well-being to boldly influence, execute, and purposefully live.
Bottom line: I facilitate a more effective leader, interdependent collaborative team, and company-wide strengths-based culture shifts, including diversity and inclusion initiatives, that improve engagement, retention and a happier more productive workplace environment.

“How you see the world is how you sell to the world” It also is a HUGE factor in what kind of a referral business you are building. Would you like to earn MORE referrals? Would you like to sell BETTER and EASIER?
A. Referrals have a 70-90% closing ratio….and a 92% retention rate, generally spending 5x more than other methods of gaining business
B. Most salespeople say that referrals are their favorite way to get new business…yet most do not have a system!
C. Strengths Zone training measures your natural talents though the Clifton Strengths Assessment, then shows you how to build
PEOPLE SELLING IN THE STRENGTHS ZONE…

LONG TERM EFFECTS OF TRAINING APPLICATION IN THE FIELD

As a StoryBrand Certified Guide, Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, and experienced Marketing and Communications professional, I use the
power of story and proven methods backed by the Gallup organization to develop and implement messaging and leadership development strategies
that help individuals and teams do what they do, better. Whether it is an onsite workshop, a motivational keynote, or ongoing coaching - I can help you get that extra degree you need to help you solve the problems that are holding you back from winning in the marketplace.
The question I am most often asked is, "Why do I do what I do?" The most honest response I can give is that I wish there had been a me for me when I was starting out as an entrepreneur back in 2007. I spent a lot of money on all the wrong things thinking it would magically give me the answers – or at least get me a bit closer to success. Frankly, it was frequently the opposite. And even though I knew my CliftonStrengths, I wasn’t making the most of them or using them to their advantage.
In 2015 I had a revelation. I was 42, still no closer to knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up. Couple that with a cancer scare along and a one year old little boy and whoa! It was my wake-up call, my big A-HA! I knew I had to make a change. With a good bit of reflection and honesty (with myself most of all), I realized the one thing that had stayed constant was my love for Strengths. I picked up the phone, called Gallup and 8 weeks later was in Mexico City certifying (in Spanish!) as Peru’s first and only Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.
I dream of creating a world where everyone can live to their full potential, talents aren’t wasted and happiness is contagious. As a mompreneur and expat living in Peru, I understand the challenges and rewards that both entail. When I’m not helping others boost their confidence, craft their message and create extraordinary lives, I am often found at the sewing machine, at the movies, enjoying a glass of wine with friends or horsing around with my terribly precocious little boy, affectionately known as O.

3. Guide others along the way.
And, I draw from my combined experiences to strive towards developing your success in life and work!

As a Soar Global Strengths Evangelist I help fellow coaches scale their practice with tools and community.
Have you ever had an “ah-ha” moment that impacted how you saw yourself from that point forward? Guiding my clients to “ah-ha” moments is why I coach. What do these moments mean to you or your team? How about maximizing your talents and executing your vision to reach your goals.
Coaching is no longer reserved for executives and elite athletes. I work with individuals and teams – students, professionals, and entrepreneurs — to uncover their natural talents and help them develop those talents into purposeful and impactful strengths and new enterprise. Using CliftonStrengths, Builder Talents, or both help identify your greatest areas of potential. And it’s exciting!
How did I get to this point? From holding unique leadership roles in the military, start-ups, not-for-profit, and large corporations. From over ten years as a volunteer coach of youth and high school baseball. From applying my strengths and talents to these leadership and volunteer roles.
To learn more about your talents and executing your vision, contact me at (817) 779-4567 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. If you are already familiar with CliftonStrengths and Builder Talents her are my Strengths and Talents. CliftonStrengths: Learner | Maximizer | Context | Strategic | Futuristic. Builder Talents: Disruptor | Delegator | Determination | Independence
You desire a career that energizes you. You want to do your best every day and be challenged by the work you do. You are either a top performer looking to up your game or someone who isn’t sure what path to take. You may be a manager of top-performing team or one that hasn’t quite gelled. No matter where you fall, I can help you explore what sets you or your team apart.
As an innovative career coach I can help you discover what makes you different from everyone else. I help you understand what skills you have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be. I help you understand what skills you (or your team) have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be.
Together, we focus on what you are doing right, instead of what you are doing wrong. I give you the tools to figure out your natural abilities and recognize when you are using them. I show you how to describe your talents to those you work with and how to consistently apply them toward a goal.
I know what it’s like to be amazing at your job and still feel like you’re not doing the work you love. For more than 20 years, I worked for a high-tech company managing people, projects, websites and events. I built my career year-by-year, taking on new challenges, learning new skills and continually asking my boss what’s next?
Then, a few years ago, during a team building event I was introduced to the Gallup Strengths Methodology. And I discovered my superpowers.
After being certified, I began to mentor those who worked for me in a new way. I probed about what they liked to do - about what sets them on fire. I assigned them to projects that would highlight their strengths and encouraged them to tackle day-to-day assignments in a style that fit them, not the structure that had been developed.
I watched them soar. I watched them move through confusion about what they’d been told they do well to enlightenment about what they innately knew how to do. I saw them grow confident in applying their strengths and realize their own career paths.
Soon, I began to mentor family and friends in the same way. Again, and again, I saw people move from confusion to understanding. I saw light bulb after light bulb turn on. I saw sparks of happiness and energy where before there was complacency. And I loved it!
At the end of 2016, I left my corporate position to start my own career coaching business. I get to use my superpowers of relationship building, influencing and strategic thinking to show people that finding a career they love is possible.
I am so inspired to work with people every day who just want to be better. They want to take their career to the next level or have clarity around decisions regarding their career. I give them the tools I was given, guide them to their a-ha moment and then watch them soar.
I grew up in Butte, Montana and currently live in Chelmsford, MA. I served in the US Marine Corps for 4 years, followed by 12 years of Active Duty service in the US Army specializing in military intelligence and infantry operations. I have a master’s certificate in project management from Penn State, and a BS in business management. Despite separating from the military, my love for serving others and making an impact on the world has not changed; my new mission as a coach with The Entrepreneur’s Source allows me to continue to serve and add value to the lives of others by sharing my own experiences in franchising and providing educational programs and coaching for others that plan to walk the same path.
If you have a desire to own your own business, I can help you realize this dream. I aim to introduce you to franchises that best suit your unique skill set and management style, as well as correspond to your lifestyle and overall business goals. After we work together to choose the ideal business for you, we will them work to find the best way to finance the business, including paying yourself a salary. There is no obligation nor fee to you, the client, for my services. If you happen to be a fellow Veteran, I can help you obtain a discount on the franchise fees via the Vet Fran Program.

Your voice needs to be heard.
Individuals and Organizations need your help.

My life has been defined by change and adaptation. Career-wise, I became a coach after a hard-earned 15 years as a photojournalist, including covering stories for The New York Times, shooting for magazines and corporations, and traveling widely for documentary projects. Deciding it was time for a change, I enrolled at NYU's coaching program, followed by The Flourishing Center's Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology. I'm obsessed with studying the latest research and being the coach I wish I'd had years ago.
I found a natural fit in coaching because I had spent years observing, capturing, and communicating about human nature. Also, as a first-generation American brought up in a cultural labyrinth, I have personally experienced major life transitions in several languages! Continually adapting to new environments and people at an early age strengthened my resilience and curiosity, and developed into a purpose: to learn about human identity and help others flourish with that insight.
I am a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, Licensed Professional Counselor, career coach, and organizational consultant dedicated to helping individuals and teams discover, develop, and apply their strengths. I work frequently in the education, non-profit, retail, hospitality, healthcare, and customer service fields providing solutions that include program startup, team development, best practices, recognition, and talent insights.
