I have been a business coach, life consultant, and trainer specializing in human behavior since 1998. During this time, I have heard my clients report many themes such as:

  • Feeling stuck with no options
  • Thinking they were underachieving
  • Hoping for a promotion, but not knowing how to get it
  • Having no idea what the next big idea would be
  • Feeling limited in attaining goals
  • Feeling overweight and unfit
  • Expressing anger or depression more often than normal
  • Being broke
  • Feeling that happiness was for everyone but them
  • Lonely and not doing anything about it
  • Complaining about all the things but the right things
  • Angry with the world and blaming everyone
  • Not sure what the next move should be

Why I started this program.

I said to myself that there must be a common theme in each of these challenges my clients had. There must be a way to help people move out of their own way.

After a conference, a woman asked me if she could join my coaching program because she wanted to implement the strategies at home. When I told her I didn’t have a coaching program, her face said it all. I saw disappointment, frustration, and even a little sadness in her face. In that “aha” moment, Move Out of Your Own Way was born.

After carrying the frustration that no matter how hard I tried, I would never have enough time to help everyone individually and seeing the pain on the woman’s face, I worked day and night pulling years of ideas and theories together and because of that Move Out of Your Own Way Coaching Program was born.

I bet you think Move Out of Your Own Way can’t help you.

Well, think again! It can and does happen daily. Thousands of people have used my techniques and had both personal and business breakthroughs with overwhelming success.

Early in my journey, I met and grew with some amazing coaches, authors and speakers. We shared tips and tools that helped us all get to the next level. One chief principle in Move Out of Your Own Way is having your board of directors. You must know that you need people who are doing what you are doing to share and pour into innovative ideas.

I was blessed to be accepted into the all boys’ club, and I made sure I put on my big girl shoes and ran with the best. The lesson will never change, though. If you want to be the best, you must surround yourself with the best. Never Bark Alone. There is no way in the world to be a successful coach, author and speaker without learning from other successful coaches, authors and speakers.

It’s like an alien landing in Atlanta in the middle of the summer wearing a mink coat. If you don’t know about weather, and no one teaches you… you will pass out! You must learn the best practices and be willing to share. You must move out of your own way!

I was blessed to have brothers who supported me with a reciprocal bond of love and respect. I have been profoundly influenced by Tony Magee, author of Can’t Shove a Great Life into a Small Dream. He literally helped me write my Move Out of Your Own Way keynote and workshop. I am also thankful for Jonathan Sprinkles and the Transition Man Johnny Campbell. What I learned with them helped grow the reach of Move Out of Your Own Way far beyond what I would have ever managed.

I have traveled, traveled, traveled, and spoken with thousands to share this little book of knowledge, doing what Tony taught me—point, story, activity. Before I met Tony, I was a professor so I thought people wanted a lecture like my students at my university. People want to be involved, and they want to see how you overcame the pain you share in your book.

2023 Coaching Program

Are you ready to take on new challenges, grow your business, and make meaningful decisions? Are you ready to live a fulfilling and empowered life?

A few places I've been:

To be honest, I created this program because I was looking at an easy way to help my client and a few people. As I mentioned in the book, I had a small dream as a child of being like Norman Vincent Peale, and I didn’t think in my wildest dreams that this simple program could be so well received by so many people and I would attain diamond medallion status for years travelling around speaking on it. It is so humbling.

In this program, I talk about being high maintenance, which is about doing more and going beyond. Once I started speaking, I made sure I kept learning and placed myself in the path of as many people as I could to ask for help and ask how I might be of service.

Zig Ziglar said it best, “You can have whatever you want if you help enough other people get what they want.” I believe in this statement. I went around smiling, learning, sharing, and growing. I kept building my board of directors, and I met some amazing people along the way. I am so blessed that a little book with 12 simple lessons has been shared with so many and helped so many people, including me, to step out of their comfort zone.

To achieve the most we want, we all need help. Let me help you be your best self.

Take up the challenge of leadership. Learn a science based approach to integrate the latest developments in neuroscience, humanities research, leadership practice, psychology, and physiology to ensure the best possible outcomes in your personal and professional decision-making.

I will work alongside you, transforming you into a visionary thought leader giving you the best advice and coaching to achieve your personal and organizational vision. I am the CEO WhisperHer in the midst of whatever is going on. I have a unique ability to fiercely “hold the space”, creating a psychologically safe environment that allows you all the space you need to reach your full potential.
