During my sales career, I discovered my successes strengthened after a shift in perspective of my painful past. Wanting to share these strategies I developed The THRIVE Perspective® program which is an innovative approach that focuses on mindset success for 100% personal accountability. “There’s always and Upside”
I found that most companies will focus on giving their team “The Toolset” ie, phone, computer, office space and they will provide the training needed to perform their job “The Skillset” but many fail to focus on “The Mindset” and without mindset success, you won’t break through those barriers to achieve desired goals.
Mindset success isn’t just soft skills, these are must-have skills in today’s market! I work with people who want to rise above the negativity and live their best lives.
I KNOW what being Stuck is and how past events can keep us from being present and creating the life we want. At 34 making great money as a sales rep, in the construction industry. Driving a new sports car, a closet full of expensive clothes and living a happy single life. My life looked perfect, friends were envious, my mother was proud.
On the inside I was dying, a broken soul. Family and friends grew concerned, they couldn’t understand why I was sabotaging my success. Harboring a horrific secret, no one knew the pain I was suffering. After years of healing, I courageously shared my story sitting next to the woman who unknowingly saved my life. October 2009 I was a featured guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and shared my secrets of child sexual abuse.
Now as a TEDx, Professional Keynote Speaker and speaking coach I help others find their voice and live positively in their life. The THRIVE Perspective® program is an innovative approach that focuses on mindset success for 100% personal accountability. Helping others become a Leader in their life, because “There’s always an Upside no matter what we’ve gone through” TEDx Talk “Healing Sexual Abuse Can Start With One Word”
I help people feel good about the bad they went through!
