What has brought you to this work?

First, a tumultuous childhood, next being a hairstylist, then high school teacher of a customer service subject for many years, I had to find ways to cope with stress, and to help my students handle life's daily trials in more positive ways.

Further development of these techniques for first myself, then others led to the development of the recent umbrella, Empowerment Starts Here and the many useful tools of self-empowerment it represents.

What services do you offer and how do they assist others?

An Author, Artist, Speaker, Intuitive Counselor, Certified Life Coach & Laughter Yoga Leader I work with individuals & groups to remove emotional clutter and live a less reactive, more positive life.

EMPOWERMENT STARTS HERE Encompasses the Following Sites & Services:

What philosophy do you live by?

My favourite quote in life is "the past cannot be changed but the future can be anything you want it to be". I take this one step further by saying, "the past can be revisited occasionally, long enough to gain insight into creating a better future. We need ALL the puzzle pieces of our lives to create the whole "authentic" person we came here to be."

There are no mistakes only wake up calls leading to the opportunity to both look and do things from a "different" view.

"Carolyn, I believe in "Building Business Relationships to Last a Lifetime not a Lunchtime" ~ Susan N. Pearl that is my quote. I want you to know I had so much fun and at your PIC function that I will be out as often as I can weather provided.
Don't get sick of me saying this -- but I loved your meetings - Enthusiasm and Spirit from your group. I can honestly count on 1 hand of the networking events that I go too that, don't mind the pun...I get a WOW from!! Yours is #1.
I AM looking forward to knowing you better and how I can help you grow your business with my trusted network of connections? "

"Carolyn, once again I am taken to a space of Awe! OMG! I am instantly transported back in time almost 30 years ago when I first met him! A TEDDY BEAR with a Back-Bone ... that was my first impression of him. WOW!! This same picture-message jumps off the page - to give me a wake-up remembering.
I write to share this with you of my experience of your truly amazing and somewhat magical exercise of ART FROM THE HEART. It has taken my breathe away in such a gentle, simplistic way yet hitting me with impact. I certainly recommend this technique of examining and seeking guidance to all who seek the same. I know exactly what my best choice of approach to my future now is!
Thank you so much for developing and teaching this exceptional technique to assist me in lifting my blocks in life."
