Mindset vs. Skillset

I've never been to Davos for the World Economic Forum, and frankly, I have no desire to go.

The Midlife Mindset Seesaw.

During the first half of our lives, we refine our capacity to prove ourselves; then, around midlife, we realize that the only proving we need to do is to ourselves, not to others.

Unleash Your Jedi Powers to Command Your Mindset.

Are you ready to ditch your business partner? Are you fighting or avoiding each other? Four years ago, my co-founder journey began with my dear friend Juletta. Setting out to make our mark, we created a coaching business. We rode the typical start-up rollercoaster of highs and lows.
