What I Do

As a certified executive coach and launch coachsultant, I help people just like you launch profitable businesses and get products in the hands of your customers.

I’ve helped launch over 75 businesses and have worked with over 300 individuals, teams and emerging entrepreneurs since 2011, and I can help you maximize your potential and launch your ‘aha moment’ into action. People come to me when they’re ready to take action, unlock their purpose, and start making more money.

My clients tell me that I deliver straight-to-the-point guidance and wisdom, with a compassionate touch – just the right balance to unlock their hidden potential. I’m all about action and moving forward – I’ll help you move past analysis paralysis, design your vision, build the components, and implement all of the details. In other words, things happen when we work together. (Maybe that’s why they call me the “One Stop Shop.”)

After working with me, clients have launched profitable businesses, negotiated promotions, got their goods into the right hands, created high-converting websites, found long-term career happiness and success, and reconnected with their innate success-drives (so they can continuously launch themselves going forward). Wherever you are in your own career or business, it’s likely there’s a lot I can do for you.

How I Got Here

My story may sound familiar to you – I was working in a high-paying job, but was frustrated and unhappy. Finally, I realized that job-hopping into a better opportunity still wasn’t making me feel satisfied or engaged at work.

As a leader in Human Resources and Employee Communications, I had learned the subjective insights of how leaders think and communicate, and how employees could improve their odds… or get left behind.

I sat at the table when big decisions were made – when promotions and firings were decided upon, when leaders needed coaching and guidance to transition into bigger roles, and creating and delivering content and websites to global audiences.

I felt like I had a voice at work, but I was completely checked-out when it came to my life. I hadn’t created or launched anything of real value, for me. While I was busy traveling to meetings, delivering bad news, and coaching executives, I put my own dreams in the drawer (and threw out the key).

I realized I wasn’t alone in this – many of my employees and friends started expressing their desire to create; to innovate; to add meaning in a way bigger than simply “earning a nice paycheck.”

So I took a leap; the biggest leap of my life. After 13 successful years in the corporate world, I left my established career to create my own career path – one that is aligned with my innate personality, requires creation and launching, and honors what’s important to me.

It wasn’t an easy journey – I have had many failures along the way, including having to go back to the corporate world for a brief stint to regroup. But I continued to search for my own launch formula, hone my (somewhat crazy-random) skills and found my confidence in my unique toolbox along the way.

A big part of my journey was helping others find their own path too. It started with career coaching and consulting and quickly grew into helping coaches and consultants create their own career paths as entrepreneurs (while still earning income). I started Launch Yourself to do just that – help people just like you, put your dreams into action and taking their life and work to the next level.
