Welcome to the Unlimited Newsletter...
Happy New Year! I want this to be an amazing year for you, both personally and professionally. Regardless if you believe in making New Year's Resolutions or not, I think it is smart to start off the year with some goals in mind. You will never get where you want to go unless you know where that is! To help you with this, I'd like to share a recent media article I wrote on Making Your New Year's Resolutions and Goals Stick (and come to fruition!) for 2013.
If you have been contemplating working with me as a coach, but haven't taken the plunge yet, I would love for you to reach out to me so we can set up a complimentary call to talk about the coaching process and about your specific situation. All it takes is making the first step to set you on the path to getting what you really want out of your career and your life. You can take this step by emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 416-432-2465.
Enjoy the ride!

Lead With Your Heart, Not Just Your Head - Have you ever noticed that in dangerous jobs, good bosses tend to have deep bonds with their workers?
