“WHEN OUR BEHAVIOURS MATCH OUR INTENTIONS.
WHEN OUR ACTIONS ARE EQUAL TO OUR THOUGHTS.
WHEN OUR MINDS & BODIES ARE WORKING TOGETHER.
WHEN OUR WORDS & OUR DEEDS ARE ALIGNED.
THERE’S AN IMMENSE POWER BEHIND ANY INDIVIDUAL”.

AN OPTIMISTS GUIDE TO SERVING OTHERS

I’m a Bullshit Free Soul Speaker.
This unconventional life has led me to great adventures of humanity and intimacy. 

Early on, I cut my teeth negotiating deals with executives by day while nurturing the career
of artists & creators into the early hours of the morning. 
It was a great and thrilling life until it just wasn't anymore.

Life starts to catch up. 
I didn't do a good job of integrating my work with my life.
I lacked a roadmap and clarity.
My physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing were constantly out of whack.

Then, I left it all behind.  
What came next was a series of small steps that over time created some incredible change.

My relationship came to an end.
I stopped smoking.
I got addicted to running long distance
I lost 60lbs.
I kicked sleep apnea.
I took on odd gigs restoring furniture, renovating houses,
business development for a start-up amongst other experiences just to try new things out.

I was really shit at most of them! 

It was all so perfect. It’s what I needed to lead me to what was next.
I started working with a life coach.  Marabeth showed up when I needed a new conversation.
Marabeth led me to do the really bold thing.  Just take a big chance.

A few months later…

I was reborn in New York City. 
I felt a purpose and a legacy to build again.
I took on an intensive year of personal transformational and leadership development work.
I became a certified leadership & growth coach and started my own business.

This journey has lead me to an exciting life of coaching and collaborating with a roster of
clients such as courageous leaders, daring artists, lawyers, doctors, drag queens, students,
start-up founders, accountants, stunt persons, venture capitalists, farmers,
professional athletes, badass executives, surfers, marines, entrepreneurial moms
as well as forward thinking organizations across North America.

 

I’ve gotten to this point through lots of passion and ambition.  
Making some bold choices and picking myself up and learning from my failures.  
In the last year I’ve had a pancreatic tumor removed, beat cancer and got completely healthy.   
This experience taught me so much about support, surrender and community.  How valuable that is!

 

HH416NYC continues to evolve and has stayed true to being an open heart
