  • A clients question – why are you so focused on the words I use… you are always saying WORDS MATTER.
    • My coaching style – it’s all about COMMUNICATION. To others and yourself

What I have learned for myself and my clients –

“Change your WORDS and you change your world”

The words you use determine your every mood, movement, action, thought, and communication. EVERY ONE OF YOUR WORDS.

  • I’ll keep them private but will use them to discuss this in more detail on next week’s show as the conversation with YOU is defining who you are and what kind of life you have and will have.

I want to help you change that.

And for participating, I will send you a copy of my book.
