Life does not getter better with chance, it gets better with change.

I work with individuals and parents who want more for their young adult children.

I am passionate about improving performance. My business was founded on the depth of my experience, the quality of our programs and our accountability-based coaching approach.

We provide outstanding service to every client and ensure that we meet your needs.

Through proven consulting and coaching methods I developed for Fortune 500 companies,

I partner with employers, individuals, parents and young adults to unlock the hidden potential.

My superpower is identifying what's getting in the way of better performance, and then

unlocking the pathway to improvement.

Together, I work with my clients to help identify the necessary performance characteristics

required to strengthen their game.

When internal motivators and personal brands are identified, and combined with the right skill, right behavior, and right attitude, they will know better and then they will do better.

I would absolutely recommend her and I'm so grateful for all

her support. Over two decades, Barbara has been a sounding board for advice, encouragement and strategic direction. Anytime I'm struggling over a challenge or looking to change directions professionally, she is always someone I contact for insight. I always feel stronger, smarter and encouraged after one of

our sessions. Her knowledge, experience, success in and approach to life is unique.

I have had the good fortune of knowing and working with Barbara for the last decade in a variety of ways, including as a client. Her natural warmth, good humor and sophisticated business acumen combine to make her a natural, empathetic performance coach.

I highly recommend her consulting and performance coaching to anyone aspiring to be more effective in life and at work.

Birth of the Book


Contact me today about my private, small group training sessions based

on my book.

I began this book before the world of work, not to mention the world in general,  became unstable and unpredictable. Today, it couldn't be more relevant. Once I realized my work was changing clients' lives as well as careers, I got to work.

I knew I needed to write a book about helping the 51% of Americans who are dissatisfied with their job to recognize why they're so unhappy, and show them how to get happy...whether in their current job or elsewhere.

I personally had ditched my own career plan years ago. I found the freedom that comes with finding my true place in the world of work. I'm now doing the work I was born to do, not told to do. And financial success was the ultimate reward. I've flourished in a career that encourages me to give back what I've learned and help others find their place in the world of work.

Having spent 25+ years helping others perform better, I found that many of

my clients would never increase their level of performance because they

were in a job that would never get better.
