It's Not About the Title, It's About the Transformation


It’s not about the title you hold, but rather the transformation that you bring.


It’s not about your business card, it’s about your calling card. It’s not about visibility, just so you can be seen. It’s so that you can be found.


It’s more than tactics, and more than strategy. This is about mastery, and your willingness, dedication and commitment to be known for doing one thing, exceptionally well.


Being the sought out expert then, is not about you, it’s about them. Do you know them? Do you love them? Are you doing what you do for them, or for you? Remind yourself to tie your why to your tribe!


When this shift happened for me, it changed my life.

When I let go of needing the accolades and attention, needing to be seen and the exhausting climb it demanded, everything changed for me. I shifted my focus and because I saw things differently, I did things differently.


I embraced the gifts that were mine alone.

The gifts, given to me specifically by my Creator, my birthright. Mine to have, but not mine to hold, not to hoard and hold close to my chest. Instead they were to share and bless others, my birth responsibility. "To whom much is given much is expected." Luke 12:48 "Faithful in little, faithful in much." Luke 16:10


Where has this brought me?

A dismantling of what I held dear, on a climb that was not meant for me. I’m meant for a different mountain. One more wholeheartedly aligned to who I am, the work I do, the way I do and who I do it for.

Maybe that doesn’t bring me as much into the limelight as it once did, but what I know is, today’s headline is on tomorrow’s recycle pile.

So, I’d rather be a North Star than I shooting star.

Austin Kleon reminds us, "It’s not about the noun, do the verb." And Aristotle, "We are what we repeatedly do! Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit."

I needed something more steady and true, more soulful and sustaining. A way to work that is more genuine and authentic, and it keeps bringing me back to mastery.


Hone your KWEGS with excellence!

Now, I'm helping other midlife women difference makers, hone their KWEGS--knowledge, wisdom,experience, gifts and strengths. it's your unique genius, and gift to the world. Pursue these with excellence, instead of seeking perfection, that will strip away the joy of the journey and rob you of the beauty of ongoing discovery.


The greater the mastery, the greater the transformation will be.

The more dedicated to mastery of your genius, gifts and craft, the greater the transformation will be, which means you will be better equipped and qualified to partner in the transformation of others, who have sought you out and fully trusted you, to take them where they want to go.


All of this is Signature to you! Your message and tribe, your offer, process—all part of YOUR Signature Body of Work.

So let’s hold each other to this.

Let's hold each other to our KWEGS and our Signature work, the mastery and wholehearted alignment.

Hold me to it!

Show up here with me because I can take you to the next place in yourself. Not because I need an audience, accolades, or applause. Not because I want more likes or followers, more opens or clicks.


Yes, all of that is important. But what’s more important is that you can trust me, you can hold my hand, and together, we’ll get you to that next place of clarity and direction, action and breakthrough.


Each new level of growth is asking for a new level of commitment to mastery, so that your aligned tribe is drawn to you like a moth to a flame.


I’m dedicated to helping you create your signature body of work at midlife

I want you to be crystal clear on who you’re meant to serve, what you’re meant to do, how you’re meant to do it.

I will push you to mastery because I push myself there so you won’t want to hang with me if this message offends you.

Only stay if it inspires you and motivates you

Stay because you're encouraged to finally walk in the greatest alignment you possibly can is this gorgeous, unprecedented, vibrant season of your life!!


I’m imploring you! I know that’s a strong word, but I’m using it. I’m imploring you to go for genius, to open every gift you’ve been given. I’m challenging you to let go of what comes with a title and embrace what comes with a journey of transformation for you and those you serve.


Today is 9/11. In a heartbeat, our nation was forever changed.

We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and uncertainty looms. Wildfires are raging in CA and the Pacific Northwest, where people’s homes and a lifetime of memories, could go up in smoke and be gone in a flash. We don’t know how much time we have. Maybe today, a year or decades more. What I know is there is no time to waste, especially now.


So, be brave with me, Sage sisters.

Let’s pursue our Signature Sage Success like a prize, and keep pursuing it to mastery, as we gather those around us in our respective tribes, and serve them single-mindedly and wholeheartedly.


I love you women more than you know. I can’t thank you enough for gathering here with me and look forward to continually sharing ways that I can best support and serve you!


Have an awesome weekend!
