Counselors Academy Spring Conference

I enjoyed speaking at the Counselors Academy Spring Conference this week in Key West, Florida.  The camaraderie was, as always, terrific and inspiring.  The presentation by Aaron Blank, CEO of the Feary Group in Seattle, Washington, in my opinion, was the award winning presentation, about the challenges of adopting a beautiful boy in third world Ethiopia.  You could have heard a pin drop and few in the room were able to contain emotion.  Check the amazing non-profit foundation Aaron partnered with

My topic “Game On- CEO Success Playbook” was very well received.  The handouts were even more valuable than the presentation.  Anyone wanting a copy of the handouts, please email me at
