Executive Job Search

One of many lessons I learned from my son, Max

MaxMy vision started pulling me many years ago (long before I was aware) when I had a fear of public speaking. You see the companies I wanted to work for told me it was required to facilitate workshops first in order to be a coach. It was common in the industry. So for a long time I just didn’t bother applying for the jobs when I learned this. Can you relate?

Later, whenever I saw a trainer position available, it would jump out at me. It would give me a nudge. I noticed it, but I wouldn’t pay attention to it because it required getting up in front of a group. Eventually, I would land the interviews and sabotage each one over and over and over again. I would start out doing great in the interview. When the interviewer started describing the job to me and I saw myself standing in front of a group of people, the fear would overcome me with an internal panic and I would sabotage the interview. It was very subtle. I didn’t even know I doing this. However, I do remember thinking back in 1995 over 15 years ago “I not going to get up in front of that group.”

Today, I know there was clearly something trying to emerge from within my soul. My passion, my purpose. What I didn’t realize was I was in an internal war between my EGO and my soul’s purpose, my true vision, my destiny.

My coach, Derek Rydall says there’s an old saying “The pain pushes until the vision pulls what’s to emerge from inside you.

What pain challenged and pushed me to overcome this fear was when my son, Max got Ewings Sarcoma Bone Cancer. He was only 7 years old.  Max already had Cerebral Palsy, severe.  He was a beautiful, happy child who had special needs and was paraplegic. Max was the love of my life. “I remember thinking, my God, what lesson am I supposed to learn this time?”

After one year of helping my son fight cancer, I had a story to tell … a story to help others overcome fears during life's most difficult challenges. This experience not only eliminated my fear of public speaking, it launched my career as a facilitator, trainer, teacher and coach. How? I went through something so much bigger than my fear of public speaking. I went from being shy to being an advocate.

"Max was a fighter with a strong will to live. He taught me how to be fearless. I knew nothing I could ever go through could be as difficult.”

When did your vision start pulling and tugging at you? Who is the Max in your life? 

Think about a time in your life, whether it’s now or in the past, when you were stuck and someone or something challenged you to look at your situation differently. WHAT’S YOUR PAIN? What's holding you back from living your dreams, your goals, your life’s True Vision, your destiny? There’s a reason you are in this world. You have a purpose. If you didn’t have a reason for being here with a message, you wouldn’t have been born.

Max had many miracles in this world. He beat the odds over and over and over again. Up until now. Max passed away recently. He was 22 years old. I am so proud of Max. He made me who I am today. I am grateful I was chosen to be the one with him the last 4 days of this life.

Max has been a teacher of patience, courage, strength and determination to never give up throughout his life!

He continues through his legacy in the hearts of so many including the 200+ people whom attended his Memorial Service and loved him dearly. He came here to earth's stage with a message to help others and left earth's stage when his mission was fulfilled. I am blessed to be his mom.

The Executive Leader’s Toolbox: Creating an Inner Circle?

Inner CircleThe Leader's Toolbox: Creating an Inner Circle!


Are you in executive leadership? Have you thought about the people in your inner circle? Who are they? What are their characteristics?  It’s a process to intentionally create your inner circle. You can start where you are right now. Be clear of what you need.  Do you need a mentor? You can be good on your own. No one does anything great alone.

Be strategic in creating your inner circle using the following guidelines

  1. Do they have high influence with others?
  2. Do they bring a complimentary gift to the table?
  3. Do they hold a strategic position in your organization?
  4. Do they add value to you and the organization?

Always look for people in your inner circle with competence, character, and chemistry.

Be aware of expectations. Are the people in your inner circle in harmony with your expectations? If so, you’ll be inspired. If not, it will be disharmony and will drain you. Below are four pointers to help you stay in harmony with the right people for your inner circle.


  1. Continue to improve your inner circle. Everyone around you needs to be on a journey of growth. If you have an inner circle member who is not improving for the sake of you, your inner circle and your entire team; it’s time to make a change.
  1. Be prepared to be an inner circle member for someone else.
  1. Prepare a lesson outline on the following: Being prepared to be an inner circle member for a great leader, so that once asked, you are ready.
  1. Outline why this is good for you and how you will follow the guidelines above.


If you hear others say any of the following statements, this is a good time to lead them to the principal of creating an inner circle:

“I have a good team but there isn’t any true sense of ownership,”  “Why is it that I’m the only one coming up with new ideas?” Or, “I feel like all of the weight of this thing is on me!”

What is Emerging this week!


Whatever's Missing Is What You're Not Giving

Nothing enters into this world except through the process of giving. If we don't give, there can't be more. If you want more to come into your life, you must let more life come out of you!

You are a divine power plant, and a power plant doesn't receive energy, it generates it. Even the word human comes from a Sanskrit term for 'man' that means 'The Dispenser of Divine Gifts.

That's who you are, that's why you came here — you really are God's gift to this world!

But there are many forms of giving. And you must engage all of them to fully activate the
Generator in that divine power plant and create unlimited abundance in your experience.

The 7 Gifts of the Divine Dispenser

Giving Forth: Share your time, talent, and treasure

Giving Away: Circulate what you no longer need/use

Giving Up: Release habits, criticism, complaints, judgment

Giving In: Let go of resistance, surrender to what's emerging

Forgiving: Free yourself and others from emotional debt

Giving to Yourself: Give you what you seek from others

Giving Thanks: What you appreciate, appreciates

I invite you to activate this divine power plant like never before — to tune in, turn it on, and let it shine! To do this, look at each life structure (Health, Wealth, Work, Relationships, Spirituality, Service, Personal Development) and notice where you're still trying to get something.

It could be love, approval, respect, validation. Or if it's something material, ask what it
symbolizes for you, what it stands for. For
example, money might equal 'safety, security,
power, worth.' Translate the physical into the spiritual quality.

Then actively give these to yourself each day, by asking: ìWhat would it look like to totally
respect/love/approve myself? etc. — and follow the guidance!

If you're really ready to activate your unlimited wealth and fulfill your destiny,

I invite you to join the —

The 40-Day Giving Challenge

To be part of this, every day for the next 40 days, ask where you can give more in one of these life structures and/or in regards to one of the 7 Gifts above. You might pick one area to grow each day, or each week.

Then share your experiences and breakthroughs on our FB pages. This is just the beginning of a life of awakened wealth and abundance.

Welcome home…
