Best of all...

My courses are not only a speedier path to your happiest life. They’re also a far more fun path - because I love sharing my research backed strategies with humor and warmth. 


Because research reports that humor helps people to learn faster - plus succeed more!

 "Fun is a High Performance Fuel!"

With this in mind, I'm known for using lots of playful analogies, feisty humor, and stylish graphics inside of my courses - so as to distill big ideas and describe simple tools - in an easier to understand way!
