You are a gift. Choose to thrive.

We can all thrive.  It is within our power to do so because it is within our choice to do so.  My life began to change the moment that I realized that no one was coming to rescue me; I owned my life and the choices that I was making.  When I was younger, some of those choices led to the bad results I was getting.  I needed to own that if I was going to change it.  Luckily, on New Year’s Eve 1989, I had an epiphany: That my life was a reflection of the choices that I had made so far. 

The choice to truly own our own life – to author our own story – isn’t a choice you make once; you have to make that choice until it becomes a habit – your automatic response  — because there will be bumps and curveballs.  One key difference between those who achieve their goals and those who wish for their goals are that those who achieve their goals pick themselves back up time and time again and they refuse to quit.  They are UnYielded. This website is dedicated to exploring the themes that help us be UnYielded and to thrive no matter what. 

I am dedicated to bringing hope, knowledge and assurance that people can be more successful and more fulfilled if they choose.  It’s what I’ve done for the past 20+ years in my career, it’s who I strive to be in my personal life and it’s what I believe I was called to do.
