Resources to help you simplify career decisions and build your life’s work


Practical guidance



Office space

My calling is to help servant leaders build intentional careers and meaningful lives, and I believe that focused career support can help you get to where you truly want to go and are needed most. Yet for many of us, this kind of 1:1 coaching work is inaccessible or unaffordable.

This is why I’m passionate about providing free (no strings attached) resources to help you become the leader you are destined to be.

With support and guidance, you have the ability to discover and achieve your purpose. After coaching hundreds of senior executives, I know that you can design your own unique career path when you are properly informed, prepared, and committed.

You can learn more about me and my mission here or, if you’re ready, head over to Job Search, Career Planning or Work Reset to start your no-cost coaching journey. The workbooks found on these pages will help you dive deeper into the practical tasks and activities that most impact and shape your career so you can show up where the world needs you to be.

Navigating the 6 Conflicts of

Meaningful Work

Sometimes the hardest part of pursuing meaningful work is overcoming the dilemmas that keep us stuck and unable to take the next best step toward the life we are called to. Many of us find ourselves stuck in one (or more) of these 6 conflicts.

Fear of playing it small and wasting your potential mixed with fear of pushing yourself beyond your capabilities

A desire to remain humble or learn from previous mistakes that warps into self-doubt and insecurity about your skills

Trying to build a rich and captivating work life without letting your profession become your identity or alter your priorities

Finding a way to make enough money to provide reasonable comfort and security without getting trapped in a meaningless job

Deciding what it means to “be yourself” at work when that differs from the standards you see around you

Trying to define your gifts and passions, and the impact you want to have, but becoming confused and frustrated with the pursuit

My work is here to help you move through these points of frustration, so that you are better positioned to create and realize the work life you were meant to have.

The Struggle is Real

If you see yourself listed above, welcome to the club. All servant leaders wrestle with these same questions and conflicts. We’re in this together.
