Brain Hacking Fundamentals Part 1: Brain Biology and How It Impacts Our Behavior -  Everyone’s talking about brain hacking these days. From the malevolent reports that Silicon Valley is conspiring to get you addicted to your phone, apps and social media to the thousands of well-meaning YouTube videos “teaching” you how to hack your brain for success. Brain hacking is everywhere!

3 Ways to Tackle Unconscious and Implicit Brain Biases - These biases and heuristics can influence our decision-making and behavior without us even knowing it...You’d be surprised to know that studies across disciplines repeatedly lead to one humbling insight -- regardless of our expertise, education or profession, we are all susceptible to automatic cognitive processes that throw our decision making off course at least a little bit.

Mastering the Art of Success Book Launch!

I am so excited to share that one of my lifelong aspirations was realized in 2017. I got the opportunity to write a chapter for Jack Canfield’s book, Mastering the Art of Success!!!   

Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I got invited to do something really cool! As part of the live book launch on July 13, 2017, I was asked (along with a few other co-authors from the book) to film a 60-minute special training class about my chapter, Success Begins with “C”: Leveraging Clarity to Master the Art of Success. Best part? The entire broadcast was live!     

During the live broadcast, I was joined by Emmy® Award Winning Producer, and the Host of Ambitious Life, Greg Rollett as I guided the audience through 5 Steps to Gain Clarity. This was unlike anything I’ve ever done so I hope you were able to join us. If you were unable to attend live (or know someone else who could benefit from this training) no worries! Simply email me at and I'd be happy to share a recording of the training with you.
