How Do I Know Which Package To Select (If Any)? 

Who shouldn't participate in this program at all? There are two types of people who shouldn't participate in this program, and for completely opposite reasons: 

1) If you don't have any aspirations to move forward in your career or business, OR are the type of person who cares only about career and not about spending any time with your family, please do not join this program. As a matter of a fact, if during your intro call we we find you aren't motivated to get what you want or don't care about your family, we will remove you from the program as we don't want your complacency to affect the experience of others in the program. 

2) If you feel like you already have it all: the perfect position, top pay, an inspirational, appreciative environment at work, the perfect relationship with your significant other, all the joy and laughter you desire with your kids, perfect physical and mental well-being for yourself, and an extremely detailed and achievable plan on how you will continue that level of success in the coming years, then congratulations - you are already there! 

Who should invest in the Virtual Package? If you want to make a positive change in your life, but fear you can't get away from work or family commitments for more than an hour or two at a time, then the Virtual Package is for you. We'll meet for a webinar, then a group coaching call, then a webinar, then a group coaching call, and so on. All the while, you'll be sharing your successes and challenges on our Facebook mentoring group to get great feedback from me and other women in the program. You'll create your integrated life plan, learn a new approach for engaging others in helping you, and get what you want for work, family, and life! 

Who should participate in the Live Package? If you want to achieve more for yourself, your family, and your career, and know that you'll never get your plan created, much less implement it, if you try to do it at work or home, this is definitely the program for you! During this event, you'll develop your entire Integrated Life Plan, identify the key people who can help you get what you want, role-play conversations to engage them in supporting you, learn how to prevent pitfalls, meet and network other women with similar goals, receive leadership coaching, and have fun doing it! Think of it as a one-day getaway that makes you more successful at work and home. Plus, when you start implementing your plan, you'll have three months of coaching calls to provide you support and guidance, as well as, eternal access to the Facebook mentoring group to share success, ask questions, and get the support you need to get what you want! 

What if I want to do 1:1 leadership coaching? If you want to get results extremely quickly, then email to set up a time for you to discuss private coaching options with me. All my workshop participants get great results and those that work with me one-on-one get results incredibly quickly and attain more than they ever knew was possible! You must be highly motivated to get what you want for career, family, and self to qualify to work with me privately. I don't work with people who are unmotivated or don't take ownership for achieving what they want. If you are a successful woman, who wants to achieve your goals quickly and knows you've got to put some work into getting it, then let's rolling! I will work with you to develop the ultimate in customized plans, maximize your support system results, and optimize your efficiency so you can get what you want in less time.
