You're taking on more education - congratulations! You're both excited and freaking out. How are you going to manage it on top of your already busy life?

There are a million ways to become more successful. My approach is unique; I call it Purposeful Productivity.

My mission is to lift you over the wall of overwhelm so you can fulfill your dreams and love your life.

Ironically, the only way to help you achieve more is to teach you to do less.

I know this because I found my way out of the same kind of dead-end. Like you, I am a smart, capable person. Intelligence and drive are our strengths, but they are also our pitfalls.

I used to believe that if I pushed myself hard enough, I could achieve anything.

So, I flung myself head-first into my graduate studies. I reasoned that the things I gave up - sleep, fitness, and the entire concept of fun - were the price I had to pay for success. I believed it was a fair exchange.

But that belief bit me in the backside; it left me struggling with my health, drained of all energy, and confused about what I was fighting for.

I had to rearrange my priorities to renew my strength.

Through my studies in human development, I learned fascinating things about stress, motivation, and resilience. It all pointed to the central importance of purpose.

I realized that I couldn’t keep driving myself into the ground for the idea that receiving my Ph.D. would magically make my life worthwhile. Deep down, I wanted more. I asked myself, “What am I going to do with that piece of paper and the rest of my life?”

Answering that question wasn’t easy. I needed help. I leaned on the support of experts, coaches, and peers. I’ve been working at it for a decade, and this process has changed my life. I continue to have breakthroughs. Every new insight brings me excitement, clarity, and lightness.

By connecting with others who strive for clarity and purpose, I have become happier and more productive.

So can you.

I learned how to make deliberate decisions, set boundaries, and nurture my resilience. I can help you do the same.

What can I expect as a Coaching Client?

In coaching, I help you ask defining questions and hold you accountable to your answers.

First, we'll set up a time to talk on the phone about your goals and relevant context. Then we will decide how often to talk - from once a week to once a month. I always provide email and text support in between phone calls to encourage you and help you when you get stuck. During our regularly scheduled calls, I'll use coaching techniques to ask powerful questions and help you uncover your next steps.

You can learn more about the questions I might ask you and my approach in my free workbook and some of my favorite blog posts:
