Why I wrote this book

The Great Recession of 2008 hit me like a thief in the night… Un-warned and unprepared, I watched in silent horror as the tsunami of changes engulfed us. It was only a matter of time before I lost a 5-figure client contract.
While my confidence took a beating, synchronicity knocked on my door. These coaches crossed my path…
Inspired by their sage wisdom–profound yet practical–I learned about the different economies they had tumbled through over the years, and how they managed to emerge in exquisite shape. I couldn’t wait to share their heart-lifting stories with coaches who, like me, have felt the dent of the recession and are ready to stoke their creativity and renew their hearts, minds and coaching businesses.

Look at every path closely and deliberately.
Try it as many times as you think necessary.
Then ask yourself, and yourself alone…
Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good.
If it doesn’t, it is of no use.” — Carlos Castaneda
