This is exactly what you need in your life! 5 Stars.

I had been looking for an encouraging podcast to listen to while I run and this one is beyond perfect. I’ve listened every day for the past few weeks in hopes to increase my confidence. Not only has it helped me in my journey of growing confidence but it has also improved my overall happiness and relationship with God. It had made me realize that I’m not alone in my personal growth journey and thata God is with me every step of the way. He continues to heal my eyes so I can see my true beauty, which I have struggled with in the past, and guides me to love myself and others as much as He does. Trish is the perfect person to spend time with everyday to focus on myself and growth. She’s such a positive light in this world and a true gift from God.

Life is precious. Thank you to my dear friend Amy for deepening my love for life.

Amy was relentlessly humble, private, and positive.

Cancer took her life after years of battling.

Amy, I pay you honor and tribute today. You will not be forgotten.

Amy, you have impacted my heart. I will live with an intimate understanding that life is short. I will not be afraid of what people think of me. I will not worry about being cheesy or too nice and I will reach out and love with every opportunity I get. I will stay centered, positive, and present the way you so valiantly demonstrated as I had the privilege of watching you live out your last painful, yet incredibly beautiful years. I will save the photos we have and the videos of the kids jumping in puddles in the pouring rain and the lazy afternoons we spent just intertwining hours of non-descript life-moments together. Those moments matter and I love them. I love you and I thank you for reminding me of the hope we have in Heaven. I will see you again soon dear friend in that beautiful place with Jesus where every tear is wiped away. 


“To achieve the impossible, you must attempt the absurd”
 Jon R. Michaelsen

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

Albert Einstein 

You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.


We can do anything we want if we stick to it long enough.

Helen Keller 

If you’re not making mistakes you’re not doing anything.

John Wooden

I never did anything worth doing by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident, they came from work.


  1. Yes, we can achieve that which we are capable of believing.
  2. To believe something, we must step into faith – and faith is active.
  3. Activated faith means work, commitment, resilience, and courage.
  4. You must be open to mistakes, and to seeking them.

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest of merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.

Amelia Earhart 


It must be something you care about.

Because chasing your calling is not convenient. In fact, convenience/comfort are enemies of a calling or a breakthrough of any type.

We too often put off our purpose or our plans because of our present preferences.

Therefore, what you want to do must be something you’re willing to

-be inconvenienced for

-be consistently uncomfortable with

-be stretched by and challenged with mistakes to deepen resilience

-be worth sacrificing your preferences for

Knowing the difference between your preferences and your priorities can be the difference between being successful at what you commit to or not.


There’s a magic pill: it’s called your mind.

The mind of an achiever has:

If you’ve ever considering hiring a life coach, a mindset coach, a career coach or a confidence coach – this is the most important time, now more than ever to do so.

I understand that investing in yourself, particularly in a time of uncertainty, feels intimidating, and it might have you second-guessing yourself. But, I assure you, there is no better investment than in yourself. The value that you get from just one or even two private coaching sessions could quite possibly be the lynchpin of change and transformation for your next steps of success.

My private coaching hours have been booked, and I was starting a waiting list for clients; but, it is only ethical that, as a coach who breathes hope and a plan into the work I do, that I find a way to show up now, more than ever for people who need coaching. So, with the help of my husband, we are arranging extra coaching hours – exclusively available now for anyone who wants affordable support in crisis management.

Sessions are micro-sessions, so just 30-minutes and can be recorded for your review and further application. The cost the discounted rate of just $150, half of my typical coaching cost.

Maybe you need coaching for crisis management about:

How to stay positive when the world feels so panicked

How to take the fearful thoughts and your anxiety and use it for good

How to make this season an opportunity for your personal growth

How to not panic about your business growth or entrepreneurial plan

How to stay on track for your weight loss goals without a gym or your normal structure

How to work from home and stay socially isolated without getting depressed

How to pivot your business efforts and marketing to work with the new economy

How to stay motivated while staying at home / how to not give into buffering or self-sabotage

How to use any career setbacks to transition confidently into a new career

How to create a routine that brings you joy at this time, not anxiety or stress

How to stretch your faith and feel good during this crisis instead of tossing and turning at night.
