Do You Have a Soulful Dream in Your Heart?

~ Enrolling Now for Autumn 2017 ~

Do you have a soulful dream in your heart that you’ve been wanting to start?

Do you aspire to write a book, become an entrepreneur and startup a business, create an artistic body of work, or coach and mentor others in your area of expertise?

Perhaps, you’re dreaming of an important project that will help solve a problem in the world, or an idea that will make everyday life a little more inspired, fun, soulful…

Let’s Work Together to Bring Your Dream to Life!

I’ve been birthing soulful dreams into the world for over 18 years, and I know what it’s like to sometimes feel stuck, overwhelmed and unsure of how or where to begin…

Let me share my years of experience with you and provide you with my soulful vision, clarity, and support to help get you started.

We’ll dream together, explore your passions and ideas, brainstorm, play, mastermind, and create an actionable plan for bringing your dream to life. I’ll keep you motivated and excited, hold your hand, be your cheerleader, and help keep you accountable to your plan!

I Believe in Your Dream, and I Want to See You Begin It!

The Top Reasons Why Some Dreams Never Get Started and How I Can Help

  1. 1FEAR
    I think most people would agree that “Fear” is the #1 “dream killer.” There are many different kinds of fear: fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of success… If fear has been keeping you from pursuing your dream, let’s work together to explore your fear, acknowledge it, find the courage to move through the fear, and allow it to empower and fuel you, as you begin bringing your beautiful dream into the world! Following your dream takes courage. But, in my 18 years of creating dreams, I have found that “not creating” one’s dreams is far more painful than mustering up the strength and courage needed to pursue them!
    The need to be “too perfect” is also a major “dream crusher.” It is more than okay to not be perfect, to make mistakes, to fail… Let me help you work through your ego’s need for perfectionism and create your dream from your heart, with beautiful truth, vulnerability and authenticity. You can read about “Living Your Truth” in my blog, here.
    The killer of all dreams, procrastination is real, and as your coach and mentor, I can help you overcome it. Let’s look at why you might be procrastinating, and get to its root cause, so that you can begin moving beyond procrastination and begin building your dream!
    We are all so busy with so many important demands on our time, as we live and work at such a frenetic pace these days. With only 24 hours in every day, it can be hard to schedule time for creating one’s dream. But, in my experience, I have found that there is always time. In our coaching session, we will take a good, hard look at your current daily schedule and search for “time stealers” and potential “dream time.” We’ll work together to create a timetable for your dream that works within the framework of your life, goals and schedule.
    Financial restraints are very real. I know this fact all too well, as I have personally struggled with finding funding for some of my creative dreams over the years, but I have always found a solution! If financing your dream is an issue for you, we’ll get creative and explore alternative funding sources and/or come up with a plan for beginning your dream within your existing budget.
    If clarity is what you’re missing, let me shine a light on your dream, help illuminate it for you, and offer you my soulful clarity. As your coach and mentor, I will work with you to help you clarify and refine your dream. If you have yet to uncover or fully discover the dream in your heart — your unique brilliance — your Light, let me be your guide on the soulful path of discovering your beautiful life purpose. You can read more about life purpose in my article, “Your Unique Brilliance,” here.
    As your coach and mentor, we’ll work together to assess your dream and the practical knowledge and expertise required to create it. We’ll then create an action plan to help you acquire the necessary skills and knowledge, or, alternatively, make the choice to hire someone who already has the needed skills, to free up your time, so that you can focus on other areas of creating your dream.
    Everyone feels stuck from time to time. I will help you identify your obstacles and begin seeing them as opportunities to motivate you to begin creating your dream!
    When we’re thick in the creative process — dreaming BIG dreams — sometimes all of the details can become overwhelming. And, when they add up, they may feel daunting and undoable. Let me help you step back, breathe, and gain clarity around your dream. We’ll work together to organize, prioritize and create a step-by-step, actionable plan for bringing your dream to life that isn’t overwhelming, but exciting, and get you started on your way!
