Who I am

  • I am an entrepreneur, strategist, teacher, mentor and champion of entrepreneurs all around the world.
  • I am inspired by people who have the audacity to want to turn their expertise, talents and passions into a business that allows them to live life on their own terms.
  • I am wired to see what’s possible for others and then usher them into that vision.
  • I am just like you – doing my best to make sense of this crazy ride of growing a business.

My History

My entrepreneurial journey began in 1987, when Mario (my husband of 30 years) used the $5000 we had saved for my wedding for seed money in our first business. Together we took that business to the multi-million dollar mark and sold it in 2000. It still thrives today.

But I was hooked… the entrepreneurial lifestyle suited me and so over the next 15 years we would go on to start and grow 6 successful businesses together.

While my credentials include a Masters in International Business Administration, it is in-the-trenches experience, not the classroom, where I gained the insight, intuition and expertise that enables me to support others on their quest for entrepreneurial bliss.

A Game-Changing Experience

In 2005, the trajectory of our life and business changed when my husband and his business partner, Nickolai, created an e-learning platform for me to deliver a leadership course to association clients scattered all over the world. It was my first taste of empowering clients from a distance and I loved it. Since then our course design and delivery service has earned a reputation for being the Mercedes of the eLearning world. With an emphasis on stellar curriculum design and a powerful user experience, we now help entrepreneurs around the world turn their expert knowledge into programs that impact lasting change and bring a consistent flow of revenues into their business.

How I See Business Now

Today, I see life and business through new eyes. Each new client we take on, each course we help design and help take to the world represents a sacred partnership. Through our clients we fulfill our mission of “exponential empowerment” which says means when we empower one – we empower millions through the meaningful work they do.
