Business and Personal Development Coach

Helping you and your business get from where you are now, to where you want to be

  • Is your career going in the direction you imagined?
  • Is your business performing as well as you know it could?
  • Are your employees really your best asset?
  • Are you achieving your full potential?
  • Do you feel that time is passing you by?

Based in the United States, forty minutes from New York City, I am incredibly lucky to be located near one of the most exciting and diverse cities in the world, surrounded by stunning views of ever changing landscapes. For me, this represents one element of my own intended lifestyle and is something I am grateful for each day. Gone are the days of the long commutes in and out of New York City, grabbing a quick sandwich to keep me going just before leaping on to a packed evening train; now replaced by instant access to all the fresh air and vitality the tri-state metropolitan suburbs have to offer.

Having made some of those BIG DECISIONS, I know more than most that achieving your business and life goals doesn’t come easily. Whether the journey starts with an intense desire to live a certain lifestyle, to be respected as a certain type of person, or to achieve a burning ambition; or whether it is triggered more by a desire to escape from the way things are; creating sustainable change requires focused determination and considerable effort. Set backs are inevitable, disappointments likely, and the pain of major change without immediate gratification can be hugely demoralizing. But, when you achieve your goals all that pain and effort pales into insignificance compared with the sense of freedom that comes with achievement!

Working with a qualified, professional coach can make the difference between moving forward and giving up; helping you to develop a clear and compelling vision of the future you wish to create for yourself while, at the same time, offering a carefully balanced blend of support and challenge. Ultimately though, the power is with you – if you are prepared to take the next step; if you can remain focused amid the babble of other people’s opinions; if you can trust yourself to keep going when circumstances seem to conspire against you, and if you can embrace failure as another opportunity to learn something new, something that will propel you further forward; then the whole of your life, and your achievements, are yours to command.
