We interrupt this website for a very important announcement

“Are You Happy Now?” is here!

I’m delighted, excited, elated and thrilled to announce my latest book:

Are You Happy Now?
Shifting Your Life From Crappy …to Happy!

This book was written with the very specific intent to make inner peace and happiness as approachable and achievable as possible. These days we need a systematic way of adding happiness to our lives — even when we don’t feel like it. Are You Happy Now does just that. Not only does it give you a life-changing system, it offers literally dozens of ways you can apply that system to your life to make things fun AND powerful.

Shift your life into peace and happiness starting today!

First, let’s talk about you…

Feel like you’re meant for something more?

Here’s a secret: It’s human nature to succeed, excel & thrive.

Trouble is, we live in a world designed to hold us back and keep us down. No, I’m not talking about some big conspiracy. I’m talking about the other part of human nature that makes us sabotage ourselves and drag others down. In the end, the real question is

Which “You” are you going to be:

The you that stays down, or the you that learns to fly?

If you choose the latter, fasten your seat belt and read on…It’s time for the adventure of your life!

Now, let’s talk a little about me…

Why Enlightened…?

I’m no saint or angel. But I’ve faced the dark, ugly, painful parts of this life and found my way to the light. I’ve learned, found, and created many tools to

  • turn darkness into light, pain into healing,
  • transform tragedy into triumph,
    and frustration into flow!

The enlightened part of me will tell you you can make your dreams a reality. You can have all the peace and happiness you believe possible–and more. Yes…You can!

Why Jerk…?

The jerk part is that I won’t lie to you–I tell it to you straight. It will take time and effort to transform your life. It will take consistent effort to overcome self-doubts and change habits.

I’m not really a jerk. A friend endearingly called me an “enlightened jerk” because I was telling him what he needed to hear in order to heal his life. He didn’t want to hear it, but he knew the truth. And it did help him heal. As a Certified Life Coach, I promise to be kind with the truth, compassionate and non-judgmental. I also promise to share the real steps that can help you grow and progress. I believe in tangible action with real results.
