Speaking Topics

Bondage vs. Freedom – You Always Have A Choice

How many of you have ended up where you are by default? Sitting in the passenger seat being driven through your life by other people’s beliefs on what you should be doing, feeling, thinking and how you should exist? This speech will inspire you to shift your perspective and to alter your current reality! Are you ready to get back in the driver’s seat?

Get Clear on what You Want

For many of us, contrast shows up in our life and this is a good thing! This contrast helps us to know what it is we don’t want. However, what you do about it is important. Do you stay stuck with what you don’t want, don’t have, don’t like or do you do something about it? Do you get clarity on what it is that you do want and take the necessary actions to make what you want a reality? You have a desire to have something different but need help getting clear on what it is? If so this topic is for you!

Leading with Your Heart

We all lead, regardless of the many roles we play in our lives. Where are you leading from? In this topic I share my five fundamentals of leading with your heart. Making the shift to lead with your heart will make huge changes in how you show up and are able to influence others positively and with grace.
