When I was 5 years old I found a butterfly that wasn’t flying.
I put her on my finger and brought her to my mom,
“Mommy, I think this butterfly is hurt.”
My mom mixed up some sugar water and put it in a plastic saucer.
I put the butterfly down to sip the water.
She stayed perfectly still for about 2 minutes.
Then she flew away.
My whole life has been a journey of empowering people to fly.
I’ve always been sensitive.
When I used to watch Lassie, I’d get panicky before the kids were saved by the dog.
Psychology has always been intuitive to me. I get people at a really deep level.
But the training to become a psychologist wasn’t the best fit for me. I learned that I don’t like labeling people and reducing them to numbers or an “assessment.”
Over the years I’ve discovered I’m less of a therapist and more of a coach and consultant.
I’m a pro at honing in to a problem, sussing out the steps to make things better and empowering people to fly when they are ready.
I never set out to be self-employed. This “lifestyle business” thing didn’t exist when I was planning my career.
But I’ve always been an early adopter of technology. I met my husband on Match.com back in the day when it was in beta and it was free. We had no pictures to see each other online. We had to spark an interest through words only. My anonymous handle on Match was “Seachild.” His was “Beachcomber.” Our kid’s favorite summertime thing to do is boogie board in big waves. He’s tireless in the water. Technology that connects like-minded, like-hearted people rocks socks.
As the years went on and technology because omnipresent in our lives, I wanted to tap into its ability to reach people far and wide, communicate , educate and connect. Traditional jobs in my profession are innovation-allergic. I have colleagues that won’t communicate with clients via email. This frustrates the pants off of me.
So I started my own business to experiment with merging online, connective technology and helping others live better lives.
I started with supporting families with children living with ADHD and autism by building online classes, support groups and coaching programs. This was a great success. When I wrote an e-newsletter for parents about their kids with ADHD, I got emails from Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Each told me my words helped them to connect with their child more deeply, have more patience and support their needs.
This experience showed me how powerful technology + compassion and education can be.
I wanted to do more. I want to teach other helpers, healers and world changers to use technology in businesses that change the world one person at a time.
I’ve been coaching and consulting with therapists and health care providers for five years. We get results.
Ultimately my goal is to support 1000 professionals to build businesses that help 100 people each. When that happens, I get to be a part of a movement that makes the world better by 100,000 people.
That’s what motivates me to get to my desk every day.
My focus in my work is building innovative businesses that make money, give people autonomy and change the world one person at a time.

Wealth has many meanings for you.
You’re ready to innovate, create, engage, and inspire.
