What would you like people to know about what you do? (1:40)
“When people transform their results, it’s not just their results, it’s the way they believe, think, and feel. So, when you do that, your life absolutely changes, it’s not just about money and receiving, but receiving more fulfillment, meaning in life, and joy.”
What is the best part about the results that your clients receive? (2:34)
“It doesn’t happen it just one area, growth, it happens in many areas, if not all. So, when people work on money, they find themselves ready for a relationship or expand their business. It’s really exponential.”
What is your favorite movie? - (3:20)
“They say pay attention to what you’re interested in. But, the movie I really love is Inside Out, all about different characters, fear, joy, disgust, anger, sadness, etc. I used to think that I don’t want sadness around, but I now realize how sacred sadness is.”
Can you define that, “paying attention to what you’re interested in,” how did that trigger the transformation into being a transformation coach? (4:45)
“I had a mentor tell me what, pay attention to what you’re interested in, the books you read and movies you watch, where you spend your money, energy, and time. Those are the things that motivates you or sparks you, and if you can expand on those or leverage those, that’s where things really take off. You need to get to that place that people can see that in you.”
Can you share with me your most successful or favorite networking story? (6:45)
“One time I went to an event, that I was very interested in, Marketing. I went to the table, sat my stuff down, came back later, and sat down while there were many people there. And someone asked, “what do you do?” I told them, and he said “OH MY GOD. I NEED YOU.” And I never saw him there again, he took off in his business, he turned out to be a wonderful client.
I’d love to share an online story, what I’ve found, is that people undervalue who they are online. For example, people aren’t looking for a chiropractor, but are looking for the chiropractor that fits them. So, this individual found me on a panel, and saw me online, and said that I was the one they needed to work with. You can’t put a cap on how important it is to be visible online.”
What do you do to stay in front of and best nurture your network? (9:45)
“I nurture my network by letting them know where I am, what I am doing, and things that I am sharing because I feel it is important that they have that information – so that they know about me. Not always only things about me, but things that matter to me.”
What advice would you offer the business professional looking to grow their network? (13:40)
“Along with what I said earlier, be visible. It doesn’t need to be a networking event, it can be anything. Continually step it up.”
Digital Networking or Traditional Networking (16:11)
“They are both equally important, I feel that personal touch is so important, but I also feel that if I wasn’t online I would be missing out on the authenticity of being online.”
If you could go back to your 20-year-old self, what would you tell yourself to do more of, less of, or differently with regard to your professional career? (18:55)
“ I would tell myself to trust the unfoldment. The unfolding of who I am becoming, because who I was when I was 20 is definitely not who I am now, but I find that I was even helping people in high school, looking back. OR, have the perspective of seeing the roles that people were in. I wish I would have known to trust that unfoldment, what you may be doing now that job may not even be around today. I didn’t even know about some of the roles I would be in today when I was 18.”
Who would be the one person you’d love to connect with and do you think you could do it in the 6 degree? (21:55)
What book are you reading right now? (23:30)

Any final words or advice for our listeners for growing and supporting their network? (24:29)
“I think it’s really important to be authentic and vulnerable. I know when I work with clients they are so afraid of putting out the wrong thing. Or that what they put out today is not going to be who they are years ago. But even if that is the case, it doesn’t change the validity of it at the time, it helps people in that place.”
