What Makes Me So Positive


Building Connections

After returning from Baghdad, Iraq, I dedicated myself full time to bringing my message to schools, conferences, and businesses around the nation. Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, I help people focus on the positive thus helping them keep their own emotions in an even keel. I help break through the boundaries that are limiting their positive attitude and get them ready to shape their future by teaching them to hunt for the good stuff. Let me help you move from the world of negativity to the world of tomorrow's positive attitude and mindset.


A Philosophy for the Future

We as a society allow others to influence our moods and emotions. The keys to success on a daily basis is to manage your own emotions by learning how to hunt for the good stuff. We are only limited by the things that we allow to limit us. We can only control our own thoughts, so why not learn how to remain positive. All you may need is to have someone show you the lock and encourage you to open the door. 


Workshops and Keynotes

As an award-winning speaker and innovator, I will bring new, educational materials, new  life & motivation,  & connection to your next event. I am high energy with a ton of enthusiasm and positivity who will electrify your event. Contact me today so we can design a workshop or presentation that fits your needs today.

Ready for Less Pain, Anxiety, & Despair


Embrace the Future with Positive Psychology

What is it that is holding you in the present negative state of mind and keeping you from accessing your brightest future? It could be that you are limiting your potential by allowing negative thoughts to stay with you. My  presentations and workshops are built on years working with incubation groups who are trying to stay ahead of the next wave by employing positive psychology daily. I will help you learn, not just what is coming next, but how to shape your mind for what is coming next in the positive psychology field.


Positive Psychology-The Real Connection

I developed this interactive presentation while working with military veterans in my community. While there were plenty of interactions between different military members, the connections between them were never utilized efficiently. We worked to establish a positive mindset that can be utilized in any situation. Using positive psychology  & resiliency concepts that allow for better workflow, relationships, and community is just a click away.


Positive Coaching/Leading

Positive psychology helps to expel negative feelings, emotions, and thoughts. Research shows that people who are optimistic feel better, call in sick to work less, have better relationships and earn more money. You will learn to appreciate beauty more, have more compassion and understanding towards others, and you will learn to be more grateful for all you have and all you give. Positivity also promotes greater health. Being positive is taking care of you! In turn, those around you will benefit from your kindness thus making a better community. We all win when we are more positive.
