What’s Your Story


Everyone has a story.

What’s Yours?

Here, I’ll go first. Here’s mine.


A story has a beginning, a middle and an end.

We were all borne to someone, somewhere, and experienced various degrees of nurturing and education.

We all had some wins, some losses and some draws; accomplishments we are proud of and things we are ashamed of.


We all have a past that was the past and first several chapters of our story.

Some of us have lived more chapters than others. 😉


But here is what we all have in common, I believe.

   We are in the middle and writing the finish by the choices we make and actions that we take today.


Whoever and wherever you are, you can still write the finish to your story the way you would like it!

I’d be honored to collaborate with you on that book.


I’ve had the privilege of helping many Blackbelt Leaders write theirs, and that’s my story.

It’s what I love to do.


So, if our stories haven’t crossed yet, please allow my team and I to help you write yours for you and your family!

And to my students reading this, thank you for writing with me and I can’t wait to help you with your next chapters!


Let’s make our stories works of art and leave a legacy!

We can’t control where we started, but we are the authors of the ending!
