Hey there, busy lady.
I know you. I see you.

Hi, I’m Danielle.
You and I have a few things in common.  We’re propelled forward by our daring ambition.  We have big hearts, big dreams, and the audacity to believe that we can have it all.

We’re not afraid to chase after our goals.  After all, a determined woman is an unstoppable force.

Hey there, busy lady.

I know you.

Hi, I’m Danielle. You and I have a few things in common. We’re propelled forward by our daring ambition.  We have big hearts, big dreams, and the audacity to believe that we can have it all.

We’re not afraid to chase after our goals and create our dream life.  After all, a determined woman is an unstoppable force.

Except there’s one thing standing in your way… you’re struggling to accomplish your business goals while also meeting the expectations of those you care about.  I know exactly how you feel.  And so do the women I’ve worked with. 

Which begs the question…

What is keeping so many ambitious women from accomplishing the things they really want? What’s keeping us in that stressed-out rut just out of reach from the results of our hard work?

"There's not enough time"

If this is your reply, then pull up a chair, grab a coffee or a cocktail, and let’s have a heart-to-heart.

With every piece of life flying every which way, an out of control to-do list and a brain that maxes out at remembering 967 different tasks, more time seems like the only answer to reaching those elusive goals.

Except there’s the fact that time is finite.

Which makes us feel as if Father Time is wriggling his judgemental finger while chanting, “You get what you get and you don’t get upset.” 

Which leaves us asking…

…if we can’t generate more time, how can we pursue our passions and create a life we love without compromising our standards? 

AN ONGOING CONFLICT

We wrestle with the ongoing conflict of deciding which goal to quit working on or which standard to let slide.  Then ultimately deciding that the answer is NONE.  Because, as you know, sister, quitting isn’t our style.

This leads me to a secret that you may have forgotten:

EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN ARE THE CREATORS OF THEIR EXTRAORDINARY LIVES

And you, lovely lady, are extraordinary.


You deserve the extraordinary life you’ve been working towards.  Even if right now it seems so damn elusive.

Here’s what I know for certain:

I know that you’ve tried everything you can to solve your time problem.  You’ve developed the habits of high performers, fully focused on using a planning system, and tried all of the tricks and tips suggested by productivity gurus.  Your lack of success in consistently pursuing your goals isn’t due to a lack of trying to make it happen. 

That’s because taking action with dogged determination is your speciality.

 

After all, persistence is a super skill you’ve developed throughout your life.

You’ve struggled and overcome

You’ve endured and achieved.

You are tenacious.

That’s what I love about you.  The warrior in me honors the warrior in you.

Now that we’re best friends, I’m going to shoot it straight.

The real reason you aren’t meeting your own standards and accomplishing your goals is because you’re trying to achieve success using someone else’s success path.

If we’re unwilling to conform to someone else’s idea of who we should be, why are we eager to conform to someone else’s idea of how we should use our time to reach our goals?

I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL

You just want to get some effing momentum going.  And if someone has a one-size-fits-all solution that worked for them, surely you can follow it too.  The harsh truth is that you’re wasting a ton of time trying to make your time plan conform to someone else’s standards.

Do you see the irony? 

You’re wasting time trying to get more time.

If I’m being honest, your lack of success is because there’s one critical piece that you’re confused about.

You believe you have a time shortage problem
but what you really have is a time management problem.

THE GOOD NEWS

This is great news because time management is a solvable problem.  But you can’t solve this problem in a vacuum.  Or by trying to implement someone else’s process into your unique circumstances.  You need to have clarity on how to capitalize on what is working and adjusting what’s not working for you.  It is nearly impossible to be objective when the problem is so subjective. 

This is where working with an experienced life coach can make all the difference.

That’s what I’m here for.  I help ambitious women accomplish their goals without compromising their standards.

Together we develop a custom tailored time strategy that maximizes your available hours so you can be strategic about accomplishing your goals without sacrificing your obligations.

Imagine how fulfilling it will be to

• have a clearly defined schedule to grow your online business and

• enjoy an daily meditative yoga practice (without fail) and

• step into your creativity knowing that your free time is protected from interruption and

• show up everyday to your family 100% present and

• unplug from the computer and turn off your cell phone and feel completely at peace knowing that everything in your business and personal life is taken care of and

• go to sleep every night with the immense satisfaction of having achieved everything you set out to accomplish that day

I’m here to help you achieve your ambitious goals, pursue your personal passions, & restore balance in your life.

Ready to start?

Here’s what we do first:

We make the commitment to work together so you can be better at managing your time, your affairs, and your mental well being.  I’m passionate about helping you run your business without all of the overwhelm so that you can live a life that is rich and free….a life that you love. 

You started a business so you could be the Captain of your own destiny.  You got into this because you wanted to live a life that was spacious, audacious and unapologetic.  You know what you’re capable of achieving and the desire to reach your potential burns inside of you with fire and fury.  And yet, you’re trying to get there with hustle and strife.  Because you aren’t sure how else to do it.

But that ends now.  You’ve found me.  And I’m going to make sure that your life and business isn’t an exhausting race of putting out fires all day long….but an incredible journey where every step is as enjoyable as the final destination.

Everyday brings new opportunities to create your future.

What are you waiting for?

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

⪼I’m a 3rd generation entrepreneur.  My grandfather, a first generation American, built a mini-golf course and a sundries store along the Keansburg Boardwalk before moving to central Florida to start a Disney themed ice cream shop.  As a child, I spent many hours hanging out there (and loved every minute!)

⪼I’m a Capricorn, Enneagram 1 and INFJ.  Practical, striving, perfectionistic, and goal-oriented.  It’s in my DNA.  And, according to Gretchen Rubin in The Four Tendencies, I’m internally motivated.  

⪼I moved to Texas at age 14.  I expected everyone to ride horses to school and wear cowboy hats.  Turns out, they don’t.  Who knew?

⪼I’m the first female in my Father’s family to graduate from college.  My great-grandmother arrived from Italy unable to read or write.  At Ellis Island, she drew a cross because she didn’t know how to sign her name.  When life feels scary, I think of how her bravery helped me create my blessed life.

⪼I met my husband, Ben, when I was 20 years old.  We’ve been married for over 20 years. I’ve lived more years with him in my life than without.  We’ve travelled the US and the world together.

⪼I’m an award winning baker.  My chocolate cake recipe won 1st place in a statewide competition as decided by a Food Network celebrity judge.  The irony is that I don’t really like chocolate all that much.

⪼I started an e-commerce business in 2009.  I still run it today with the help of my amazing team. It’s helped me learn many tough lessons about marketing, business finances, and how to navigate the complicated world of online entrepreneurship.

⪼I decided to become a life coach after my husband became seriously ill.  In a very short amount of time, my life changed drastically.  We relocated to a new city which required me to leave my community of support and find new work as a freelance architect.  Almost immediately, my husband developed an illness that required me to become a full time caregiver and operate like a single parent, while also running an e-commerce business. On the heels of my husband stabilizing, my father needed me to provide end-of-life care as his Stage 4 cancer took over.  I survived those years by using the concepts from The Life Coach School podcast.  When I emerged on the other side, I decided to spend my days helping other women navigate the challenges in their life so they could also emerge better and stronger than before.

⪼Today, I live in the suburbs of Dallas with Ben and our 2 teenagers, 3 cats, and a new puppy (who reminds me regularly to step away from the computer and throw the ball).  I am blessed to be a coach for women entrepreneurs who want to create amazing businesses and live life to the fullest.
