My mission is to guide employees who want to seize the freedom of self-employment. If you’ve always wanted to start your own business and haven’t then I can get you there. What would it take for you to make that big decision that you aren’t making? You only need an effective process supported by a clear structure and that’s what I provide. My vision:Everyone is authentically fulfilled in work, in love and in life.
How I stumbled into coaching.
In the fall of 1998, I was speaking at the Carnegie Business Library, downtown Pittsburgh. A guy came out of the audience after my talk and asked if I did coaching. At that time, I didn’t even know that it was a profession but sensing an opportunity I took his wife on as a pro bono client. I found that I loved coaching more than the speaking because it allowed me to go deeper with clients and to stay with them long enough to see results. I’ve been coaching ever since and I still bounce out of bed eager to coach 14 years later.
Your life has spoken to you too.
I’ll help you find your natural eagerness and confidence. Throughout our lives we are given gentle nudges and progressively louder hints to engage in work that brings us alive. Growing up in the sixties I wasn’t interested in the space program. I liked building dams and going on stand-by-me adventures where we followed newly dug gas line ditches for miles. My first job was on a truck farm, at 17 I worked for an excavator installing sewer lines and at 20, I worked in deep shaft coal mine. Do you see the pattern? Fast forward 27 years and I call my coaching company CoreU because I’ve always enjoyed going deep within my client’s messes and guiding them out.

Credentials & Certifications
I’ve quit showing coaching certifications and association memberships. Aside from the Pittsburgh Coaches Association, where I was privileged to serve as a founding member and second president, I no longer value them. As an example for my clients, I no longer rely on outside bureaucracies for validation. It’s not good for you to rely on them either. Your own capacity to create what you want, with the guidance of your own individuality, is the only credential you need.
