1. AN UNUSUAL AND EXCITING, TYPICALLY HAZARDOUS, EXPERIENCE OR ACTIVITY;
2. A DARING AND EXCITING ACTIVITY CALLING FOR ENTERPRISE AND ENTHUSIASM.

SERIOUSLY, HOW IS THAT NOT THE DEFINITION OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP???

    Your heart longs for adventure, but your business is full of roadblocks. Let’s clear the way, shall we?

It takes a special kind of person to shake off all the “shoulds” in search of something better. To decide that it’s simply not good enough to have a life over here and work over there. To strike out on your own and create, instead, that sweet spot where your work feeds your life and your life feeds your work.

Where, woven together, they form the magic carpet that lets you
get out and explore the world, or your corner of it.

It’s been a year or two since you opened your doors on the
interwebs. You’re whip-smart, experienced, and savvy.
Ridiculously good at your craft. Driven to do whatever it takes
to make it work. And you’re poised to make a real difference in
people’s lives (and in the world).

But somewhere along the way, the spark you used to have has turned to a fizzle.

You’ve tried your damnedest to do it right. You’ve researched and implemented. Innovated and launched. But things just aren’t fitting together. Everything feels harder than it should and nothing seems to just flow the way the way it’s supposed to.

And, if you’re honest with yourself, you know you’ve gotten so caught up in the business of your business that you’ve lost the vision of what you want it to be. Worse, you’ve stopped listening to that voice inside you that knows what you want, and you’ve replaced it with the voices of the “experts.” The ones who can only see the way that they would do it, or the way that it has always been done.

THAT ENDS RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

You are one of a kind. Your business deserves to be too.

It’s time to reconnect to your own goals and genius and trailblaze your unique path. You can design your business to take you exactly where you want to go. But, you have to say adios to the way everybody else does it and get crystal clear on exactly who you are and what you want most.

Because you didn’t get into this to be a follower. You got into this to be a leader. To be the boss.

And because who you are is the most compelling element in your business and your one truly unique selling point.

You’re not here to
follow the herd.

You’re here to draw
your own map

Yes, you’ll find yourself in unknown territory. But that’s a good thing. Because you want…

To make your own rules and direct your own future instead of treading the well worn track of what everyone and their mother has done.

To create something wholly new and meaningful, to plant your flag and make your own mark, instead of just going through the motions in service of someone else’s ambition.

To craft a business that’s a passport to an exceptional life filled with curiosity and discovery, courage and inspiration, rich and novel experiences, traveling however and wherever in the world you want.

The greatest adventure of all is not finding where you fit in.

It’s creating it.

I know a little something about breaking free from conventional expectations and pioneering a path to an exceptional life.

I’ve been in international client and business development since 2000. Along the way I’ve worn lots of different hats (all tilted at a rakish ‘come hither, big boy’ angle, natch). My specialty has always been winning clients for companies, boldly going where no woman had gone before, opening up new and mysterious foreign markets for small, unknown service based businesses.

But, as a wanderlusting free spirit living inside a driven business woman, I constantly battled between my desire to run off to faraway lands and my fierce, professional aspirations.

I could never find that perfect place where I fit in. You know that spot? The one where contentment and challenge collide and canoodle. Where I could help a client achieve their goals in the morning and celebrate with a good Rioja in a castle by nightfall.

So I created it.

I’ve been a full time entrepreneur since 2005 when I fled the cubicle for foreign lands. There are some delectable details that we could cover here that include Spain, France, and spies, but those stories are best over a glass or three of red.

After ages of scoring heaps of clients for small businesses, I realized that I could use these same talents to help real, heart-beating humans do the work they love in the mysterious and foreign market that is the online world.

Enter the C word. Coaching, you barbarians.

Specifically, the genius of Barbara Sher, the godmother of life coaching. Way back before Marie Forleo was even born, Barbara was dispensing her whip-smart, no bullshit advice on how to do what you love and are gifted at. I spent a year studying with Barbara in Germany and began coaching ex-pat entrepreneurs in Madrid.

Throughout my career, my secret weapon has been seeing potential, possibility, and a path forward, where others can only see overwhelming and insurmountable challenges.

AND I WANT TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU.

Blazing a trail can be daunting. But it doesn’t have to be.
