Below is a list of books and other resources that have added significant value to my life and those of my clients (check back often as sharing books, videos and other resources is a core part of my coaching practice).  My hope is that they may inspire you to get to know yourself better, discover the greatness within you, question and reframe thoughts and narratives, shift energy, turn obstacles into opportunities and put a plan into action to become the person you always knew you could be.  And, if you are already living that life right now, congratulations!  Here’s some inspiration to take it to the next level!
