It's time to make your heart-centered impact.

That fire in your belly to do work that matters - to make a real impact in the world is real. In fact, your full and satisfied life depends on your answering its call. Now, it's time to step into thought leadership - to share your ideas with clarity, confidence and natural charisma so the people you are meant to serve can hear you calling their name.You're in the right place.

What if they simply can't help but listen to you?

It takes guts to say what you mean with conviction. Yet, it's the only way to make your impact.
The Messaging Guide for People on a Mission shows you exactly how.

You & The Mission Driven Life

First, let me tell you - I get it. I know what it feels like to be chased by a knowing that you are meant to do something truly meaningful - something life-changing for others.

Even if you don’t know exactly what that thing is, it’s there, a heat in your belly. A desire to do something more, something…real

You may have a “day job” or a family to care for and it’s hard to figure out how to fit this in. Yet, it’s becoming really clear that you can’t not do this thing, make this kind of difference in the world.

You can’t not share your story, your passion, your life-changing message with those who need it. Whether you plan to wrap a business around this mission of yours, or start a non-profit, or devote your weekends and evenings to make a huge impact, you are finally ready to make it happen full on.

Your family may not get it. “Why are you so intense about this?”, they ask. “Aren’t you already busy enough?!”, they say. “Maybe you should get a ‘normal’ job…” (the worst.)

But it’s not about being busy, is it? It’s not even exactly about building a business or doing amazing work… it’s more than that. It’s more visceral and personal. It’s about doing the work you are on this earth to do.

It’s making an impact with your message. It’s about changing lives with your story, your expertise, the difference you know you are here to make.

This isn’t the easy path, that’s for sure. But for some of us, it’s the only path there is. And something about stepping onto it incites a passion in us that we can’t go back from.

I get it. I’m on that path, too.

I know the crazy mix of emotions: excitement and fear, uncertainty - and certainty, too! Sometimes all you want to do is make this happen - and other times you want to turn away and hide from the whole complex thing.

But you won’t. You can’t. And that’s perfect - that’s how it’s supposed to be.

The beautiful news is, you don’t have to do this alone anymore. I can help.

You can learn more specifics about the ways I can help by clicking that link above (or in the menu at the top).

For now, let me tell you this: I spent over twenty years trying to figure out what to do with that fire in my belly. The last five years of it were very painful and confusing as I tried to build a business (or walk away from that business and get a meaningful job) mostly on my own.

Here’s the truth (and I am blushing a little as I say this): I wish I had someone like me to help me get clear on my mission and make my impact so much earlier in my passion-driven life.

That’s why I can’t not be here to help you right now. And it feels really awesome to me that I get to do that. Whether you want to craft and deliver a soul-stirring, room-moving presentation, build a business around this mission of yours or you simply need clarity on what this thing is that you feel such a drive to say and how to say it with powerful conviction, I’m so ready to help.

I look forward to supporting you as you step fully into your beautiful mission-driven work.
