Business Consultant

Over the years I have worked with many entrepreneurs and those who want to earn extra income. I've worked with home-based businesses, startups and small business owners who want to achieve greater business success. I gained my business development expertise from 25 years of working for and with small businesses. I have also been a small business owner since 1985.

Lifestyle and Business Mentor

Carol offers a powerful, mind-emotion-body-spirit mentoring style that guides people to embody their highest vision of themselves. While working with people, she mirrors back to them the life they are attracting through their thoughts, beliefs, words, emotions and actions and guides them to greater self-awareness and understanding of how to align themselves with what they want.

Her whole-living, practical approach teaches people how to consciously and deliberately create the circumstances of their lives, instead of reacting from a place of stress or fear. She works with individuals, couples, groups and teams in person, on the telephone or through the Internet (email or Instant Messenger). [Coaching Testimonials [Success Stories]

  • Our environment - the air we breath and the water we drink, cook and bathe in.
  • Our nutrition - the food we eat.
  • Our health - the vitality our body experiences.
  • Our livelihood - the work we do that brings us joy.
  • Our thoughts - the attitudes we have, the choices we make and the thoughts we think.
  • Our friends - the people we know and the friends we keep.
  • Our spirit - the love we give and the good we do.
