Experienced and Tested

With 30+ years of experience, I only teach topics around which I have kicked some ass. I’m proven.

Inspiring and Funny

I’ve been told that I’m inspiring. And funny. You’ll have to see for yourself. One thing for sure is that you won’t forget the lesson at hand.

People Mover

I not only train, I move people to do something differently. I understand the individual and the organization. Influence is my calling card.


Through my writing and coaching, I hope to help you through your own personal change.


Donna Highfill worked with my team on changing behaviors. She energized us, shared valuable information, and my team is all the better for it.

What On Earth Are You Doing Here?

Yesterday a new acquaintance asked me, “Are you doing what you’re supposed to be doing right now?” I was eating a salad at Panera Bread when I thought I should be eating a treat from the bakery, so I replied honestly. “Not at this...

How to Change Your Life by Changing Your Story
