>>>I’m a catalyst – a forward-thinking problem-solver
I’m an expert at figuring out the levers to help you align more efficiently with the shifts taking place in the world in real-time.
This is where the magic happens: change the paradigm rather then fight with the same-old problem in the same-old ways.

>>>I’m particular about getting things done efficiently and effectively
“Let me put it this way,” my Dad was telling me when I reached out to him for a second opinion as I was recovering from a challenging long-term marriage, “if you were the general contractor on a job site, the owner would be very happy with you that you were making him money and that the work is getting done on time, and properly. The people slacking off on-the-job might not be too happy with you. That doesn’t mean something is wrong with you. When you know how to get a job done, well.”

>>>When I set a goal, I must see it through – no matter what
I could say that I’m good at overcoming obstacles, and this would be true. There have been many obstacles that have presented themselves to keep me away from stepping fully into my purpose to help others fulfill theirs. I soldier on.
But I’m mindful of the power of language. Focusing on overcoming obstacles means that first, the obstacles have to present themselves. Only then, after “overcoming” can you achieve your goal.
However, changing the way you think about the “problem,” shifting toward thinking about preferred circumstances presenting themselves, well then, that seems more efficient. Saving time and effort and getting to the good stuff sooner.
