“Make your calling, your message. Speak congruently with your beliefs, your passions”

Get out of your Comfort Zone!


When you are passionate about your business and your services, you want the world to know.  That’s what started me thinking about how I could use the media to get my message across, back in my executive days.  I didn’t have a business mentor to guide me, but whenever you can clearly tell your story in plain speaking, you will have an audience (even at a local time of 4:55am for breakfast TV).

Talk about getting out of your comfort zone!  But that is the place where change happens, where growth occurs, where leadership is manifested.  As your business mentor, I can guide you on the best way to get out of your comfort zone.  Contact me today to start our conversation.
