2 Quotes That Grabbed My Attention

“If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.” –James Cameron

1 Resource That You Might Find Helpful

Last year, I switched CRMs. This was not a quick process, nor one I took lightly. But the CRM I switched to took the place of almost a dozen other providers, saving me nearly $200 each month. That’s almost $2400 per year!

The CRM I switched to? High Level.

Now, inside one integrated SaaS solution, I have all of my booking calendars, email list, marketing tools, website, landing pages, funnels, and a ton more. No more need to hope the calendar integration works with the CRM, or that the landing pages integrate with the email list correctly.

I’ve been a customer of High Level now for 6 months, and I’m a big fan. If you’re interested in taking a look, they’re offering a free trial period so you can check it out. Just go to this link.

(That is an affiliate link, for which I earn a referral fee if you become a High Level user.)


As we approach the end of the first quarter of 2024, let me ask you: has this year been different so far from last year? Or more of the same? Are you breaking old habits and sticking with new ones?

How can you get out of your own way and take steps to become the leader that your team and your company need you to be? It’s not just going to happen. It takes intentionality. And that’s where coaching comes in.

As an Executive Coach specializing in Mindset and Leadership, I work with entrepreneurs, founders, executives, and C-suite leaders who want to become catalytic in their leadership. Through 1:1 coaching, my clients move from where they are (stuck) to where they want to be.

For March, I currently have availability to take on 1 new client. I don’t accept every person who approaches me about coaching; in fact, I turn down those who I believe are not ready or a good fit for what I do. If you’d like to explore whether Executive Coaching is your next step toward the impact you want to make, let’s talk. No hard sales pitch. If it’s not right for both of us, I’ll tell you so. My goal is to help leaders get out of their own way, stop breaking their own businesses and teams, and move into being catalytic in their impact and their legacy. If you’re ready, book a time for us to talk.
