CHALLENGES

Challenges are primarily in my own head. What can I get done, do my words have an impact, am I being the leader I could be? The flip side of that is that I tend to run with every new idea and thus wind up with an overfilled plate.

FUTURE PLANS

Future plans would include increasing my coaching and consulting capabilities with online learning-starting with real estate and moving into leadership. Creating an event in the vein of Tony Robbins that is more directed at entrepreneurs, and leans into the female perspective (but is not just for women).

PURPOSE

That’s easy. To live out my calling as a child of God and a follower of Jesus Christ, by being obsessed with delivering value to every person I encounter.
