Have you ever fallen into the trap of trying to be just like someone else?
Phew! I am not alone.
Trying to be just like someone else is stressful, annoying, and rather boring for the rest of the world.

Just because you could do something, it doesn’t mean you should. Options are great, but if you aren’t living out your specific purpose in the world and using your gifts, it won’t bring you or the world life. In fact it will cause everyone involved to die in a painfully slow and very boring way.
My joy and passion in life is helping people figure out what they want and how to get it.
Plain and simple.

- So what if I am the woman who spills her water all over the boardroom table because she talks with her hands and is so excited?

There is only one me. Only one you.
You’ve got air coming through your nose, you’ve got a heartbeat – it means it is time to DO SOMETHING! It is both of our responsibility to create something that will make the world awesome.
