Please tell us something about yourself.
Usually, I travel the world as a cultural ambassador for agencies like the US State Department and the UN. However, right now, I am home like so many others because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This moment has provided an opportunity to deliver an online class, something I have long wanted to do. People who attend this class will build unstoppable and unshakable courage that you never knew you had. You'll face your deepest fears and walk right over them, knowing that you were put here to do more.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey?
Please tell us about what you do.
Over more than two decades, I have created environments that support people in exploring and using creativity and strategic questioning to support people in addressing their fears, developing a place where everyone has an equal voice.
“Voice Your Vision” is focused on confidence-building and helping people discover their “next big move. It is a three-hour course, viewed on-demand. I am offering live coaching to participants as a bonus. Also, I will be giving practical tips on speaking, self-discovery, and big-picture ideas that help with personal self-actualization.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work?
Facebook is the only channel that I have really used – I have a fan page with several thousand fans
What's your greatest fear?
Not getting to help as many people as I can.
What keeps you going when things get tough?
The things that keep me going when things get tough are the same as those that made me successful. While recovering from the incident, I discovered what I call the Heartvoice Method, and it allows me to find my courage to stay confident and to always be able to communicate with my authentic voice no matter how stressful the situation. Now, traveling the world and teaching these tools to hundreds of people no matter their situation is my life's work.
Any message for our readers.
I invite you to discover and unlock the one domino that will change everything for you and allow yourself to fully commit to making your next big move. I've found that having clarity on just this single idea will have you popping up out of your bed every day, excited to take on the day, and share the power of your voice with the world. That's what we will do in this new masterclass.
How can people connect with you?
I am conducting my new Masterclass, Voice Your Vision, live via Zoom on May 28th. During that class, people will have the rare opportunity to work with me directly so they can visit www.voiceyourvision.net to join now.
