EOP Conference Keynote Speaker

Caffeinated Group Coaching is coming!
September through October 

Did you know there's absolutely a vast amount of opportunity in group coaching?


You get more answers faster because your cohort will ask questions or provide ideas you might not have thought of. How? I will evoke stimulating conversation, community problem-solving, and resource sharing.


The difference between when I bring people together and when others do, is I help you forage genuine relationships. How? I will meet with every potential cohort member 1:1. Your time is valuable to me so I want to ensure every participant is a go-getter, community-centered, and enthusiastic to give back. No boring cohorts here. And the pressure to be social will not be on one person nor will one person take over the talking time.


Or your money back. My successful career groups have been positive since 2013 and I feel confident to guarantee you'll hit your goals. Why? I know how it is to decide what to invest in or not. I also know there's free groups available-I've joined them and I hear about them. And I promise you, I will surprise you. Best yet, you will surprise yourself.

Group Coaching

INVESTMENT: $1, 450 

🤔 Doing the math? Good for you! This is 35% off my original price point of $250/hour. The standard rate with a coach of my experience is typically $600+ per hour. And groups like this one can be up to 40k. Thanks for considering my family's financial needs while making your important investment decision.

Each virtual cohort will have:

  • 6x 1.5 hours sessions

  • 7 members in each cohort

  • Each member will be vetted for awesomeness

  • High impact worksheets

  • Guest speakers to address the needs of the group

  • 1, 1:1 session per member
