I used to never have a plan for my life...
And what’s so crazy is that my day job was planning! I was a professional project manager and really, really good at that so I planned many huge technology projects, some that involved 3rd parties in other countries!
So why didn’t I think MY life was as important as a work project?!?! Why did I think other people’s priorities were more important than having a life I wanted?
Because I had no clue there was an alternative. And any alternative would take time I don’t have...
I wasted so much time thinking thoughts that kept me stuck.
Then one day I realized I’m more scared to waste more time not knowing what I’m here for than figuring it out!
It’s time to make time and make my #1 priority figuring it out.
And the result of that is a system I created that works for me!!! I call it The S.P.A.R.K. System and I use it every day.
This system is how I found my purpose. And now, every day is now planned around that...
Recording a 25 minute video 4 times is EXHAUSTING!!! I never knew I could get tired from talking too much!
Maybe if I had some to talk to instead of my own face!!!
Seriously I think my vocal chords are worn out. My throat is so sore!
Hoping I don’t have to do it again!!!
Some may assume I created my own business because corporate life wasn’t lighting me up.
Although that is one big reason, I really left because the life I have now allows me to take time to do more of the other things I love, like sit outside on my porch and meditate while enjoying the sounds of my fountain.
There are a million reasons why I love my "job," but what really lights me up is helping other people find their version of "porch time." :)
What lights you up?
Don’t ever think you’re too old to step into a new career doing the work you are meant to do!!!
I remember my old cubicle life... desiring something different but not knowing where to begin. I didn’t want to go back to college and start from scratch, but I knew I wasn’t where I was supposed to be.
So I just started putting one foot in front of the other, taking action on what felt right.
And last August THIS was something that felt right. I knew it as soon as I heard about it. And I was able to get in on the ground floor of this new certification program.
So I jumped in with both feet!!! And what a ride it’s been!
I just graduated, after spending a semester learning the science and then a semester of practicum work, and I am now getting to do the work I know I’ve been put here to do.
It may have taken me 61 years to get here but better late than never, right?!?
I am officially a trained and certified Master NeuroCoach!!!! Hot damn!
Thank you to all...
Have you ever had a great idea that you never implemented?
Well, I’ve had quite a few, but this one was one I finally pushed to the TOP of my priority list and made happen and I’m so FRIGGIN’ excited about it!
When it came in the mail two days ago, I actually jumped up & down and screeched! LOL!
I sat on this project for awhile, since last November! But it’s DONE and now it’s here - right before a new quarter! How perfect was that?!?! #thankyouuniverse
If you’re wondering what IT is, it’s my unique system that I created and use every single day.
I used it to first imagine and then create my passion-filled and purpose-driven online business and soon I’ll be giving one to each of my new students when they join The Second Half S.P.A.R.K. School when I open the doors to enrollment in a couple of weeks.
There are a lot of passions about to be uncovered & realized in the next 90 days and I can’t wait to lead my new...
Can you hear that? That’s the beautiful sound of the keys on my keyboard and my pencil on paper!!! (Because I use both! #oldschool)
Yes indeed! I'm creating a brand, new workshop which should be sweet music to the ears of those who are tired of settling for the life they don't want and are ready to uplevel!
My workshop is all about finding passion, purpose and profit AFTER the empty nest!!!

I see you and I'm here to give you a blueprint to getting sparked in your second half. The alternative should no longer be an option!

Has your road to fulfillment been a conventional one?
I took a conventional path to a conventional job where I punched the proverbial ticket of success which led to an impressive paycheck and an even more impressive title but every time I got promoted, I became less fulfilled.
My bosses would reward me with new titles and generous salary bumps, often with nice stock options, but they never once ASKED me what role would most light me up. And I, unfortunately, didn't even have the answer so I just let my ego lead the way.
As my resume got more impressive, I got more disconnected from my purpose, from my zone of genius, from the work I'm here to do.
I didn't know then what I know now, but that's okay. I give myself grace because it was that journey that led me where I am today. And I'd definitely say what I do today is unconventional!
In fact, an online business wasn't even a possibility when I started my career!!!
There’s no set way to get where you’re meant to go... Our...
My cup is so full! I just finished doing updates on my course and I’m excited to be rolling out the new version officially TOMORROW after my free LIVE workshop.
What I’m even more ecstatic about is that my course now ALIGNS PERFECTLY with what I teach about Sparketypes in my workshop. In fact, I'm so passionate about what I teach in my workshop that I've changed the name on my signature course to "The Second Half S.P.A.R.K. School" How PERFECT!!!
I love how it has evolved and become even BETTER, just like ME!
The updated version of my course is jam-packed with video trainings about The S.P.A.R.K. System I created and that I use every single day, with downloadable & printable worksheets that you can use right away to develop your heart-centered action plan.

I’m in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it! But you may surprised to know that it's not romance love. (Well, I am in love with my husband but that is not what today's blog is about!)
I am in love with what I do!!! I just lights up my soul every single day!
I’ve been a coach for over 6 years now, but it's not been the same kind of coaching the whole time... It's definitely been an evolution!
I started out dabbling in coaching with a network marketing company. It was low risk and I could easily do it on the side. And it didn't require a new degree or any kind of certification. I could coach just based on my own personal experience with the products.
But the more I did it, I realized I wanted to be my own boss - to be a professionally trained coach and to help at a deeper level. I wanted to build a business of my own where my success was not reliant on another company's decisions. (And I never really was a fan of the network marketing model).
Are you ready to learn about the life-changing method I discovered late last year that eliminated my chronic stomach pain, constant bloating, and burping (ew!), and helped me FiNALLY get the number on the scale to go down? As 2019 ended, I actually felt like a normal human being again!
And that is precisely why I decided to create The Friendly Foods Workshop and share this amazing method with those who are struggling like the 2019 me.
Registration is officially OPEN so get your spot NOW! CLICK HERE to sign up.
I am off-the-charts excited to share this simple, yet highly effective solution for identifying the "healthy" foods that are actually working against you and making you feel crappy.
And I can't wait to share my amazing results from just eating friendly foods for the past 30 days - with holiday and vacation imbibing included.
This system will rock your world because it is NOT your typical diet.
If you are a wine lover, a chocoholic, or a cheese addict, ...
