  • Assesses and understands diverse corporate culture

  • Builds dynamic teams with maximum impact and minimum drama 

  • Navigates  people dynamics

  • Engages staff to uncover creative solutions and opportunities that 'fit' the culture and stimulate new ways of thinking.

Having a solid, successful professional life is terrific;

BUT ONLY having a solid, successful professional life isn’t fulfilling.


Showing up for friends and family and having a personal life is terrific;   
BUT ONLY showing up for friends and family and having a personal life isn’t fulfilling.

Entrepreneurs have a constant battle maintaining balance because the lines are blurry between life and work.  There’s always a little something else you could do


Decide what is ‘enough’.  List the work things you need to do that day to achieve ‘enough’.  Once you’re there, give yourself permission to shift focus.
Calendar time for life.  Honor it the same way you do your work. How do you want to spend your time?  With whom?  What needs to be done?  Make a list. 
Make balance happen.  If left to their own devices, both work and life will gobble you up.
Feed the passion in all areas of your life.
Own your time.  Take charge of it or you might start to look like the person in the cartoon – not so good lookin’….



Balance doesn’t just happen.

It’s a choice.
