So how do you fix those things?

Those challenges are addressed through coaching and training. I’m a confidential partner who listens, diagnoses and advises. I teach the skills and mindset to optimize both your time and your on-the-job relationships. After engaging with me, you have systems and processes to use time to your best advantage and greater insight into yourself and others. With new skills and an improved mindset, you eliminate the overwhelm, get more of the right things done, enjoy a better culture and find yourself being happier at work.

There are a million coaches out there. What’s different about my process?

I help driven business owners and leaders overcome priority overwhelm and eliminate office drama so the focus can be on running and growing the business.

If the challenges below sound too familiar, we should talk.

  • Struggle with too much to do
    and not enough time
  • Crave more time to focus on
    the big picture
  • Fear that important tasks fall through the cracks
  • Are frustrated that projects
    never launch – or get stuck
  • Can’t stand meetings that waste time and have little impact
  • Wish to spend less time “in the weeds” but can’t escape the feeling that
    “no one else can do it.”
  • Need to be clear about priorities and spend time accordingly
  • Tire of co-worker dramas that
    shift focus from “the work” to
    “people issues”
  • Want a collaborative team with
    a positive attitude, maximum productivity and minimum discord
  • Hate responding to minor grievances and refereeing petty disputes
  • Fear clients’ service suffers
    because of personality or communication challenges

It’s about you first.

Time management systems fail because they aren’t rooted in who you are as a human being. What I share with you isn’t just another system of time blocking and list making. It starts as a human process – tapping into who you are, how you work, what drives you and where you’re going. Then we create solutions tailored to your unique style, habits, preferences and goals.


Unique expertise.

Owners usually come to me to improve their time management, but in every case, people issues come to the surface. People issues are an enormous time suck and energy destroyer. I have a mastery of time and people management – a unique combination of expertise. People are at the root of the culture of your business. Culture matters, so people matter. Get better at understanding and leading people and your culture will be a magnet to other top performers.



I’ve established an accountability process that clients say they haven’t seen with other coaches. Because you’re the boss, there’s nobody making you do anything. I help hold your feet to the fire for things you’ve wanted to make happen, perhaps for a long while. I kindly and firmly keep you accountable to yourself and your business growth.



Tons of it. My thirty-six years of business and people experience is put to use for you. I spent 17 years working for other people and been a business owner for 19. I see and understand the big picture. Then we drill down to key issues and create targeted solutions focused on the most effective use of your time and creating a culture of collaboration.



Intuition, or following your gut, is important. Even better is intuition backed by science. I’m certified in multiple assessments to deepen your understanding of yourself and others. Coaching engagements start with a fascinating look into who you are and why you do what you do. Every client remarks at how dead-on the results are. It’s a rocket ship to me understanding you and an opportunity for you to gain extraordinary clarity about yourself.


If you could make the changes you want on your own, you would have.

Working as a team, the factors that have kept you stuck are uncovered and eliminated.

You get the results you’re looking for because you have a partner working alongside you.
