Leslie200Ever wish you had a different career? One that nurtured your soul and let you live the life you’ve always dreamed? I did too and I made it happen. I can help you make it happen too!

My goal is to help you find or create a career you love and design a life that excites you. I know what it’s like to want more time for family and personal pursuits. I know what it’s like to count every penny only to discover there aren’t enough to cover the bills. In an effort to overcome these challenges, I tried everything from selling real estate to direct sales. Overtime I designed my own career that allows me to do what I want, when I want and how I want. If that’s what you want too, I can help. My goal is to give you the information, tools and motivation to grab life by the horns and take control. So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, check out the site and start plotting your career and life!

However, the last few months of 2014, I noticed how annoyed and stressed I was getting at angst and drama in the world (mostly on Facebook). My daughter took the right approach and just stopped participating on Facebook. I can’t really do that as much of my work involves being involved in social media. My challenge...
