 Powerful business coaching

ABOUT ME

Passionate About Inspiring Others

I love helping businesses grow. Especially small business start-ups that have big vision but lack the where-with-all to achieve it. There is nothing more awarding then hearing a client say “Wow! That’s a great idea! Why didn't I think of that?”

This Career Chose Me.

In the beginning, I was literally dragged kicking and crying into the catalog business when Bergdorf Goodman decided to centralize its operation and scooped up all the newbies (including me) to run it. It was one of the worst and the best day's of my life. The worst because I just beginning a merchandising career and felt co-opted. The best because I quickly discovered catalogs were on the rise and I was riding the wave.

I was lucky. Blessed with many wonderful mentors along the way, I thrived for 30 odd years at some amazing companies, including: Lands’ End, Hanna Andersson and Norm Thompson. They taught me how to grow a business, and also embodied the ideal that one doesn’t have to compromise oneself to be successful in business. And neither do you.

When the Internet changed the world, it changed mine too and I went looking for my next big adventure. I wanted to give back the knowledge and the riches I had been given. To be of service to others, the way others had been to me.

I Found My Calling in Business Coaching

And I discovered I was born for this work. I love my clients. Love helping them leap seemingly impossible hurdles. Love breaking down barriers that are sometimes real, but are often barriers of the mind.

For over a decade now I’ve been helping small and mid-sized business owners grow themselves and their businesses. I’m still pinching myself that I get to do this important work. Mind you I’m no Mother Theresa, but I am doing my small part to make this world a better place. Of that, there is no doubt.

Enough About me. What's Your Big Vision? I Can't Wait To Hear.
