After leaving the workforce to raise my children and start a 'successful' work-from-home speaking, coaching and consulting business, I spent more than 57,000 business development hours, figuring out 'best practices' for achieving “success” –through trial & error.

Instead of achieving the work-life balance, time-freedom and financial success, I sought --starting a business had led me down an unhealthy path to success.

I found myself STUCK behind my computer, STRUGGLING in 'entrepreneurial poverty' and FAILING to get my business off-the-ground and THRIVING – in the age of (TMI) TOO MUCH INFORMATION which forced me into the HUSTLE GRIND-- Meaning: Get Rich or Die Trying & Sleep When You’re Dead!

I became tethered to my computer for hours on end daily, often forfeiting valuable sleep time, burning the candles at both ends. I would sit at my desk "knowing I needed to get up and exercise" but failed to do so, because I had to become a successful entrepreneur.

I was a stay-at-home mom, however, I wasn't present with my children and family members because I was consumed by the idea of making millions. My social life became nonexistent as I was always working on my business.

As I spent, unrecoverable amounts of, precious time and valuable business development hours in 'learning mode' versus 'earning mode', I was forced to move “back home” following a failed marriage, divorce and foreclosure that left me broke, broken and homeless.

This was due in part to my refusal to give up my BIG DREAM of being a successful entrepreneur, and as my 'nay-sayers' would advise -- “GET A REAL JOB!”

It was in that defining moment -- that I started investigating the business practices of the Top 5% of highly successful coaches who had THRIVED both financially and in their personal lives --during their startup years. --men and women who had achieved work-life balance, time & location-freedom and holistic success!

That is when I discovered...

There was more to life than financial success and that is when I started practicing being successful in other areas of my life.

"There was more to the startup and business success equation"– than what was being 'publicly presented' by the Top 5%.

So, while the 95% were STUCK, STRUGGLING & FAILING -- the Top 5% had an unfair, advantage over the majority. As they were, secretly, behind closed doors– ALIGNED WITH THE LAWS OF GOD, THE UNIVERSE & SUCCESS!

I call it: The Spiritual Side of Business!

THAT'S RIGHT! You read it correctly...

"There Is A Spiritual Side of Doing Business" –
that allows the Top 5% to tap into the higher vibrational frequency of SUCCESS that accounts for 60-80% of the
Business Success Equation.

This is how they manifest and achieve higher-levels of success in their businesses.

As according to the laws of quantum physics...
Your Coaching Business Is ENERGY -- just like everything else in the Universe...

And the Top 5% know how-to use their thoughts, words, mind, actions and emotions to turn intangible business ideas and intentions into practical and prosperous business and quality of life realities.


I had discovered The Top 5%'s Sacred Secret to starting a successful values based, work-lifestyle business, on my terms, during my startup years and created The 4-Day Work-Life Balance, Freedom & Success Circle to help more startup founders, CEO's, high-octane coaches, consultants, experts and business leaders and their teams do the same.
