As an Master Certified Coach and Mid-Life Strategist, I partner with busy professionals and executives who want to attain greater fulfillment and results in life and in work. I've worked with individuals and groups of business owners, entrepreneurs, sales people, and other professionals in the USA, Canada, England, Italy, Venezuela, and elsewhere who want to take their life and work to the next levels of success. I term what I do “SoulBusiness”(tm), which I define as “Integrating who you are with what you do to create the results you want!"
