What is the connection between the office water cooler, a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, and the kitchen table? I’ll tell you! Stories! We open up, share our day, what we learned, how we feel, and our humanity comes together when we are heartfelt and transparent with who we are to our core.

Here is an opportunity to share a piece of you:

As Iyanla Vanzant says,

“When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else.”

In the comment area in this blog please tell us something about you. Why you do the work you do, what is the back story? What or who has impacted your life?  Why have you written that book or created that piece of art or music?  

I am thanking you for all those that will appreciate you for sharing, cause they will.

As the author of  “In Just One Afternoon – Listening Into The Hearts Of Men” I know the that stories show us we are not alone.  Stories give us hope and inspiration.  

Please share yours – remember it does not have to be paragraphs – just your heartfelt thoughts!

As a coach, business women, talk show host, advocate, mother, wife, and grandmother I have a lot of interests and passions. I wanted to take all of what I do and put it under one roof so to speak. That is why I created a web site in my name. As we all the know the internet is confusing at time and so so big. I have other sites but I figured it would be easier to find me by my name and then my other sites would make more sense. This site is more like an aggregate. a directory of all that I do. I will show snippets of my work. Thank you visiting, I look forward to knowing you.
