Financial retirement planners ask, "Do you have enough money for retirement?" I ask, "What are you going to do with your time when you retire?" I help my clients plan their Retirement Lifestyle. We find and ignite your passions and purpose, and create a plan to start living a life of joy and fulfillment.
I guide you to succeed in your transitions, and pursue your grandest dreams in retirement. I coach with the knowledge and wisdom of experience. After 20 years in the corporate world, I fulfilled my dream of sailing around the world. Upon my return I transitioned to author and wrote a six-time award-winning memoir about my odyssey. The next transition was to motivational speaker and coach.
By documenting my transition experience, I have discovered the same skills, traits, and characteristics I used to complete a six-year circumnavigation are the ones used to succeed in my personal and business life: dreaming, setting goals, taking risks, making tough decisions, managing fears, setting priorities, persevering, giving, maintaining a positive attitude, and learning to live with love, laughter, and passion.
I pride myself on excellent communication skills and a natural ability to coach through digging deep, active listening, and helping you find the right course of action. I’m tenacious and relentless in my pursuit of your success.
I’m proud of these accomplishments:
Author of the six-time Award-winning Amazon #1 seller, "The Boy Behind the Gate."
Author of "Navigating Entrepreneurship, 11 Proven Keys to Success."
Author of "Let's Go!" a children's reader for 8-12 year olds
Creator of the online interactive video program, "SAIL INTO RETIREMENT”

My business skills are many with a focus on sales and marketing. My business career included founding World Class Incentives, resulting in an expertise in the incentive travel industry, product distribution, business success analysis, customer service, marketing, motivation, and consultative sales. I like to consider myself a leader, which to me means taking responsibility without taking the credit for getting things done.
