I've always had an insatiable appetite for figuring out how things work - nothing was safe from my probing mind. Littered with the guts of my toys, model planes, rockets, gadgets, tools of inquiry like my microscope, chemistry set, and telescope, my bedroom was my laboratory for discovering how things work. The smells of glue, solder, and paint seeping underneath the door told anyone walking by that I was hard at play.
Heroes like Evil Knievel, The World's Strongest Man, and the Six Million Dollar Man were an endless source of inspiration for me. Every Friday night, sitting cross-legged 3 feet away from the TV screen, eating Bocce's pizza, I'd feel the thrill of watching Steve Austin run like a cheetah, lift a car with superhuman strength to save a child pinned underneath, and see danger a mile away with his bionic eye.
I too wanted to be able to do the incredible, the miraculous, things that have never been done before. Whether flying off the bike ramp, speeding down the ski slope as fast as I could (with as few turns as possible), or skate boarding down the hill on my street, I was constantly testing the limits.
Nothing could stop me.
Or so I thought.
Long story short? It turns out that what was to define my life was not my dreams and aspirations but, ironically, the numerous unexpected challenges I've had pursuing my dreams! Today as a life coach, I get to support people in realizing their dreams and living their passion, by helping them work through any and all challenges they themselves may face, including technology ... hence, my motivation behind Packaging Your Passion!
I love helping people transform their passion into viable online enterprises by bringing together my experience as an online business coach, computer skills teacher, life coach, and designer to offer a complete, one-stop shop to walk folks through every step needed to bring their creations to full fruition.
What follows is an extensive list of my life's experiences, background, and the fun I like to have :-)
