    There's probably a lot of stuff eating up your brain space and disengaging you from the things that are most important in your life.


    The Minimize to Maximize lifestyle mantra is all about minimizing the things that don't give you oxygen so that you can maximize in the areas that do.

  • Are you ready to Sprint Upward?

    We Do Growth Coaching in 15 Minutes

    My custom approach to growth coaching will not have you doing any of this...

    ...waiting two weeks to talk to your coach (me)

    ...losing site of what you were focused on to move in your intended direction.

    What it will include?
    1. Frequent growth sessions, in 15-minute bursts
    2. A system for your growth accountability and goal tracking

    3. Text messaging access to me, your coach, for when you are in a pinch

    Sprint Up: The Growth Coaching Program for Busy Entrepreneurs with HUGE Dreams

    What does SprintUp looking like?
    1. We meet in sprints and work in sprints - 2 times per week coaching sessions in 15-minute increments
    2. A technology and process system that will help us (together) track your progress to goal
    3. Text messaging access for when you are having a panic attack (though I hope you don't have those and we can just send each other funny memes)

    **fine print**
    $750 is the price per month for ongoing growth coaching
