I Grew up Feeling I Was Stupid…

Growing up I felt that not only was I was stupid, & ugly, but I couldn’t do anything right. My family agreed with me, which supported that I really couldn’t do anything. All through grade school and high school I struggled…

Then one day I met a great teacher that believed I was more capable then I did. He insisted I take risks, encouraged and guided me. Much to my surprise I excelled! I went on to graduate from college with a Master’s degree in psychology. I created a successful psychotherapy practice and then moved into the field of management consulting and executive coaching. I have spent twenty-five years struggling and mastering self-confidence for others and myself.

Over these past twenty-five years + I have developed an expertise in leadership mastery and changing limiting behaviors’ to help people get promoted and enhance their careers.  That is why I am being interviewed in this 2-part podcast Building Self-Confidence and announcing my free webinar to help you build self-confidence and advance your career.
