It’s that time of year here in the U.S. and Holiday Season, end of year coming our way! Lots to pay attention to and to be thankful for!
I am the family member who sits at the table on Thanksgiving and goes around and has everyone say what they are grateful for…..
I am that person who wants to stop and feel grateful.
Knowing that we are in a better version of ourselves when we are in the feeling of fulfillment and gratitude.
AND—This year I am so very grateful for my clients, featured now on my NEW PODCAST– have some Holiday listening!

When I met Milijana she was feeling pretty low about her inside self.
Even though she was an award winning weight-lifter and strong on the outside, her worthiness was low.
Milijana is like so many women I work with….things look pretty good on the outside,
but the agony on the inside…..
Heck, even married to a dashing professional athlete, she wasn’t where she wanted to be at all.
Lots of ideas.
Lots of education.
Lots of confusion.
Not enough Self Worth.
Building a future from here is impossible.
The truth is,
Stephanie’s Story: An Introvert’s Guide to Career Power
“Do I have to be someone else to get ahead?”
“Can a natural introvert still stand in her power and make an impact?”
These are common questions I hear as a career coach.
When we think of making an impact we often imagine the charismatic speaker, the dominant boss, the political savvy game player.
These people may get ahead in more traditional ways, but it is not necessary to be a success.
What is necessary is to separate the introversion from the fear.
How to Use Your Future Self to Guide You Now
She wasn’t happy with her same ‘ol, same ‘ol job!
Feeling stuck in a steady job as a mother of 2 small children and being the wife she thought she needed to be. (Mo, I’m not sure why I felt I needed to do everything to keep the plates spinning!)
After our first Clarity Call, deciding to go for it herself…
she went back to ask for a small raise.
She stayed for a while longer…..reaching out again after more of the same.
Feeling stuck with financial obligations, and the “security” of many years at the same organization.

Inspired by Debbie,
I am sharing the behind the scenes way my clients make dreams come true.
The techniques are not to use better resume writing techniques, although we must be good.
It is not the best LinkedIn profile, but we must be good there also.
It is not JUST learning to speak up and have a voice and be aligned and proud of who you are.
It is not just to network and make yourself known to the right people, and that is certainly key!
JUST HOW DO DREAMS COME TRUE?
How did Debbie, and hundreds of women just like her do it?
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
Yes, Debbie, dreams do come true.
“Are you sure, Mo, it seems a bit much!”
When the human soul finally sees it’s beauty and brilliance it can stop judging.
When the human soul finally sees the path to the life it always knew was in it’s heart- it finds joy.
When the human soul finally falls in love with itself and with life, miracles occur.
Miracles are a normal part of life to those souls who are aligned.
Debbie was not quite on this path when we met earlier this year on our Career Clarity Call.
New Job Means a NEW YOU!
Wanting more in life requires being more.
Yup– and I spent my life working on me.
Whether it was the hundreds of repetitions of hitting a tennis ball against the garage door late in the evening…hoping for that Wimbledon Tennis Championship or late night layups in the driveway wanting to seal a victory for my team.
I was born with an innate sense of working on my skills.
The hundreds of books and countless conferences hardly touched the surface….but then…. I put it all together.
As a young nurse I studied and studied.
When I rose to the ranks of health care business professional I subscribed to The Wall Street Journal,
Kim and I met on Facebook…..she was disagreeing with me about my favorite saying:
“Everything Always Works Out For ME!”
I asked her to try it for one DAY!
She did…here’s what happened!
To say she has learned to live in the flow and create miracles is an understatement.
Not only does she have her dream job and dream salary (thanks, Mo for the wonderful techniques!!), but she is enjoying her family more, more quality time and she feels like herself AGAIN!!
Many years (too many) spent thinking this sort of life was a fairy tale, she finally felt enough was enough!
Kim is now living her life to her soul’s fullest!
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
“I walked out on my job and then THIS Happened”
I see it all the time….walking out on the job because the emotions become unmanageable.
All the time…..
You have done it all.
They don’t see you.
Others are recognized.
You work long hours for what?
The pattern is familiar and your have no way out.
You can’t ask for help, because they would just blame you for not doing enough.
Judith’s story is very inspiring>>>>>her journey is like so many women I speak to every week.
That’s why my executive background and coaching talents come together to bring a new focus…what does it take to have difficult and “impossible” conversations?
Being bombed out as a little girl, refugee to Germany and the life of being unwanted was all she knew. Teenage years battling an eating disorder hurt her deeply, she barely survived that.
Some days being angry and hateful was the only defense.
Until she found her strength in the gym.
Years ago, being strong meant lifting the most weight. Milijana was a true super-hero in the gym. Medals, awards and being recognized as the strongest women in Croatia were proud moments. She thought it would take away the years of trauma. Trauma was weighing on her in many ways, eating disorder, suicidal thoughts and deep rage.
She found her safety in the gym,
