    Professional Coach and Labor Attorney

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 1

    In 2012 I chose to transition from a solid 20-year career as an attorney earning six figures and great benefits to opening my own business and becoming my own boss. Trust me, while it was a natural progression for me, it was not an easy transition in many respects. However, most of the difficulty was rooted in my own fears and perceptions. Getting to the other side of all that is what it is all about. I know about fear and risk. And I know about business. My experience in business spans from retail and resale to the service industries. Following your internal compass is one of the most important, yet challenging, tasks in business, and in life. My objective is to help business owners stay on task. Whether it is goal-setting, business turnaround, employee performance issues, vendor communication challenges, or a new business startup, I am ready to help you chart the best course of action based on your values and priorities. Two heads are better than one, so let's talk!
