I help committed creatives break through their limiting beliefs so that they move forward with clarity and take inspired action. Steven Pressfield lists Rational Thought as #2 of 3 enemies, forces that array us against ourselves as artists and entrepreneurs. In the same vein that business building is a skill to cultivate, questioning your thoughts is another way to flex your business muscles as you pursue your calling in the world. I hold a B.S from the University of Maryland a Master’s Degree in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma and a Doctor of Education (Ed.D) in Leadership Development from the University of Texas at El Paso.
