…writer, TEDx speaker, and strategist. I work with creative entrepreneurs and business leaders to uncover the 20% purpose-driven stuff that leads to 100% of the results. Because you deserve to feel energized, not exhausted… focused and committed, instead of swamping around in uncertainty and lack of direction.
If you’ve read my book or heard and watched any of my interviews, you know that for most of my life I felt like I was living someone else’s idea of success, that I was chasing gold star after gold star in the hopes that each one would bring me satisfaction or esteem. But it was never enough.
It wasn’t until I started “fitting out” — finding my own way, independent of the opinions and expectations of others — that I was able to break out of that cycle of never-enough and begin to reinvent life and business on my own terms.
Those are the kinds of decisions that led me to what I call sustainable success — tapping into your full potential and then leading from that place. And the strategies to do that are what I share here.
You can find my work featured in places like The Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, and SUCCESS magazine. My debut book, Change Starts Within You: Unlock the Confidence to Lead with Intuition was selected for Inc.’s “26 Favorite Books of High Achievers” and has been described as “‘Eat Pray Love’ meets ‘The 4-Hour Workweek’.”
Before turning entrepreneur, I served as an executive at Vanity Fair Corporation, vice president at Sustainability Partners, professor of graduate studies for Big Ten US universities, and global associate for the renowned beCause Consortium. (I also moonlighted as a deli waitress, secretary, and everything in between, as a way to put myself through school and life.)
I’m a graduate of the London School of Economics and a certified cultural mediator in multiple languages, and I live with my family between the United States and Italy.
