My presentations, workshops and podcast appearances share strategies & stories that will help make business owners & entrepreneurs more successful.

My most popular topics are described below. If your group wants something different, let’s talk!

Contact me to discuss your speaking/workshop/podcast needs.


Simple Strategic Planning 

As fun as it is to dive right into action, spending some time & energy up-front allows you to be much more intentional with that action. That makes you more successful, with less stress and more ease. 

In this talk, you’ll see how to easily bring together your vision, strategies and plans so you have a clear roadmap for the outcomes and impact you want to have.


Trail Magic: Hiking Lessons to Make You a Better Business Owner

(even if you don’t hike!)

I thought hiking was something I just did for fun. I didn’t realize that everything that makes me a better hiker also makes me a better business person. 

In this talk, I’ll share my near-disastrous experience hiking Mount Washington and how that taught me the importance of identity - knowing who I need to be so I can show up as the person who hikes tall mountains/runs a successful business. 

We’ll also explore lessons from other trails I’ve traveled, like Mount Kilimanjaro, the Grand Canyon, the Salkantay Pass and the Camino de Santiago.


How to Set Goals You’ll Actually Achieve

A Coast Guard friend once told me that if a ship captain is just one degree off in their planning, they can wind up miles away from where they want to go. It’s the same thing for business owners - if we aren’t clear on our destination and how we’re getting there, we’ll never reach our goals.

In this talk, we’ll dive into a goal-setting process that’s more than simply choosing something you want to achieve. It’s connecting that achievement to who you are and your unique definition of success so that you can’t help but achieve it.
