What is standing between you and your best?

What is keeping you from being your best?

What’s holding you back?

What to do when your current self is barely surviving?


Grab your coffee. We need to chat.


Who are the people you see crushing all their goals? They seem to be running circles around you, while you’re still trying to sufficiently caffeinate yourself and wake up for the day.


How do they do it?

How do some people achieve success more quickly than others do?

How do they maintain that success over the long term?

How they do it all AND still manage to be happy?

What’s their secret?!


If you desire that kind of focus and energy, the secret is in a place most people overlook.

It is within YOU, your mindset and your daily habits.


Believe it or not, high performers’ success is due in large part to their healthy approach to living – not just a focus on doing the work. They have applied that holistic approach to every aspect of their daily lives. Creating a high-performance life comes down to high performance habits.


I personally discovered Brendon Burchard several years ago when going through a difficult time in my own life. His writing helped me get back on track.  In 2019, I learned that he offered a coaching program based on helping people incorporate the 6 High Performance Habits that lead them to live extraordinary lives. I WAS ALL IN!


These habits are rooted in genuine research, compiled through extensive interviews with both high performers and those who are struggling to survive their current level of being (can you relate?). These are the habits needed to become a your best self. And as I mentioned before it isn’t a secret—all the answers are right there for you and in you!


That’s where I’d like to offer some help, because we all know if it was as easy as reading a book, we would have already done it. The challenges lie in altering our self-limiting beliefs and shifting unproductive routines to new habits that serve us and our goals.


While this blog can serve as a jump start, I strongly encourage you to pick up Brendon’s book and start reading! It will really get you thinking about how you can make meaningful changes in your life that will help you grow and build a foundation of critical habits needed to sustain high performance.


There’s no better time to start taking action than TODAY. Let’s build our best-selves together.

The 4-Letter Word Owners Can’t Afford NOT to Talk About: EXIT

I’ve had my share of family business owners who avoid discussing this four-letter word to the point of pure denial, quickly ending the conversation when this word bubbles up. The word? E-X-I-T. It sounds so final. The brutal truth is that 100% of owners exit the business, yet only 50% – just 1 out of 2 owners – will do it on their terms...

Unlocking the Golden 5% in Your Employees

The Golden 5% is the full expression of our ability, multiplied by our maximum possible effort, multiplied by our full contribution of heart. It is the performance equivalent of what we offer in a deeply loving relationship – the absolute best of ourselves. And yet, we rarely give it or reliably inspire the giving of it by others in organizations. Why?
