Career Clarity Course:
Simple Steps to Uncover the “Best Use of You” Now.

career directionIt’s time to rethink your direction. And to stop waiting for clarity to just appear.

Whether it’s your career direction, your business direction, or how to be of use in retirement, come learn a framework to help you know the “best use of you” now.

You can call this your purpose, your career path, where you fit, or simply put, “the best use of you.”

Uncovering that can be easier than you think, and so fulfilling when you find your fit. It’s also important for the world so that your best gifts can flow for the good of all.

New for 2021.

Grounding Body and Mind for Sensitive Souls — Available Anytime

GroundingPeople with big hearts can be at risk for overwhelm from others’ energy, the news, or our inner critic.

As a highly sensitive introvert myself, I’ve had to find good grounding methods so I can keep living my purpose without exhaustion.

In this tiny course, I’m sharing my go-to methods for stress moments, inner critic moments, getting back to focus, and even getting to sleep.

You’ll come away with:

  1. A little more calm in your body today.
  2. Inspiration for incorporating more grounding so you can thrive while keeping your heart open.
  3. Learn and practice a simple “tapping” method similar to acupressure. (Also called “EFT.”)
  4. Take-home instructions to use this on your own.

Available now, on-demand, for self-study.
