Did you know? It’s impossible to achieve your dream life without knowing where you are now. When I coach people in the Oola principles, one of the first things we do is find out where they are in life.


Just like when you use your smartphone’s Maps app to get directions, the first thing that shows up is where youare at this moment—represented by a little blue dot. Plug in your destination, and your smartphone will use GPS technology to give you step-by-step, mile-by-mile directions from your current location to your desired endpoint. But before you can go anywhere, you need to know exactly where you are right now.


Over the next few weeks, I’ll be leading you through a where-are-you exercise in the seven areas we cover in the Oola Coaching Program: fitness, finance, family, field (career), faith, friends and fun. We call these “The 7 F’s of Oola,” and by the time this month is through, you’ll have a checklist of things you’d like to improve. Are you ready?


Let’s look at the very first of The 7 F’s of Oola: fitness.


On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your health, fitness habits and mental wellbeing? If you answer “1,” that means low/bad/least true, while answering “10” means “high/good/most true”:


• I would rate my current health ____

• How close am I to my ideal weight? ____

• I would rate my overall mental health ____

• I do 3+ cardio/resistance sessions a week ____

• How hard do I push myself during exercise? ____

• I am active outside of exercise sessions ____

• I practice relaxation daily ____

• I love my life and have little stress ____

• My meals are nutrient-rich and contain the proper calories for my body ____

• I eat a balanced diet and avoid processed foods and fast food ____


So? How did you do in your Oola Fitness assessment? If you didn’t like your numbers, start planning some changes for 2021. There’s still time. In fact, the 10-week Oola Coaching Program is the best formula I’ve discovered for getting from where you are to where you want to be.


Check it out at the website (or email me) and let’s work together over the next three months to transform your life in 2021. I’ll be your biggest cheerleader and most supportive guide to getting there.


Can you believe it? 2020 is almost over. Which makes these final three months of the year your best opportunity to make sure 2021 is more balanced and more abundant.


If you’ve been following my posts, you know that I’m big into getting what you want in the 7 major areas of life. It’s something I learned from Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—The OolaGuys—who teach how to create balance in our unbalanced world.


Now, as a Certified Oola Life Coach, I help clients address what’s not working for them in the areas of fitness, finance, field (career), family, faith, friends and fun. Then we go to work correcting those stressors and bringing about the lifestyle, relationships and financial security you need to be happy, balanced and growing.


Three Months to Go: What Will YOUR 2021 Look Like?


With October here and this whole crazy year almost behind us, people are starting to call 2020 a wash. The Lost Year. An epic fail. But before you give this year the heave-ho, why not spend the last three months of it deciding what you want your next year to look like?


Whether it’s make more money, be home with your kids, improve your marriage, have fun, get healthy, or something else – the Oola formula gives you the steps to get there. The key is to decide where you need to make changes, write out your wish list, and start taking small steps every day toward 2-3 goals at a time. It’s a three-step process that’s part of the 10-Week Oola coaching experience that I offer to my clients.


The reality is that you can have anything you want, but you need to start focusing somewhere. By the time my posts during this month are through, you’ll have a wish list of things that will transform how you live—and even who you are as a person.


Have some ideas of what you want already? Whatever your wish list includes for next year, drop a comment below and share it with us. The Oola formula can be a big help toward getting there—so if the 10-week Oola coaching experience is something you’d like to pursue as 2020 winds down, message me and we can jump on a 30-minute discovery call to explore the idea of working together on your goals. I’m here to help 2021 be a breakthrough year for you.

Dream big. Start small. But most of all, start.”





I love this quote from Simon Sinek, the bestselling author of Start With Why. It gives us permission to dream as big as we want. But it also comes with a warning: you gotta start somewhere.


If you’ve been following my posts, you’ve already taken inventory of what’s not working your life, then you’ve created your “dream list” of what you DO want.


Now, it’s time to “start small.” Here’s a strategy I love that I learned from The OolaGuys, Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl, founders of the worldwide Oola Coaching Network. The three of us are working together to bring my followers an effective path to the life you want—where you’re balanced, happy, and growing. We call it the OolaLife.


Today’s Oola strategy is pretty simple: grab your list of “wants,” then start circling the top 7 things on your list that would immediately change your life—from the money you earn, to the lifestyle you enjoy, to the mentors you have, to the career you’re pursuing, and more.




Choose 7 things.


Then make a list of steps—however small—that you can take to bring those 7 outcomes into your life.


If you want to move up in your company, for instance—because you know a better job would mean more pay—make a list of the things you need to learn or do in order to get the promotion you want.


If your dream list includes spending every summer at the beach, make a list of what you’ll need to do to rent a house, work remotely, get extra vacation time or otherwise make it happen.


Once you have your steps written down, you’ll be better able to tackle them one by one. And in my next post, I’ll give you a super easy formula for achieving baby steps toward your goals every day.


Of course, to stay on track with your goals (when it’s so easy to get distracted), I’m happy to be your coach and accountability partner.
