Who Am I?… what have I accomplished?
‘I am a true value junkie and catalyst. I love deep, creative thinking and making a difference. I deliver results through visual, feel-good strategies and everything I do is content-rich and heart-felt. With me, YOU empower your senses and intelligences, to make YOUR ‘groove’ YOUR ‘sweet spot’…
…real yet intangibly-indescribable; proven yet unprecedented; measurable yet untouchable.
I am an intuitive storyline designer that can elevate all avenues, angles and aspects of your life and business.’
T r u t h s & B r a g s – ‘I style my experience to offer you an experience in style.’
So far… I have had a very fruitful, fulfilling career, in Oil & Gas, IT and service. After evolving into a full-blown, work-a-holic (then, the in-addiction, buzzing entrepreneurs and leaders), I made a decision to change my life. My son was already leaving home and my daughter was starting junior high school. I already knew, what I might miss. Consulting, independently, was a most ideal choice, at that stage in my life.
No way could I have ever have known, the dark, gruelling decade, I was about to encounter… the endless maze of unprecedented struggles, strains and straps, drenched in loss, sickness, family addiction, adversities, shocks and hardships… a persistent, perplexing plethora that would eventually slide me right off the radar, even as an extrovert.
As the negative gained traction, in my personal life, the oil patch was also starting to crash. I completed my projects and never bothered chasing anything new. I even turned work, down, to keep face in my professional arena – nobody knew of the dive, the industry would really take! I strategically settled my practice, into a handful of executive mentoring clients, which I eventually trickled down, to nobody. I had to fake it, to make it… out. For me, I would have to lose it all, to really make it, the greatest. An unprecedented journey in self-awareness, self-growth and self-empowerment… a winding, wobbly journey that would take me from feast to famine, in almost every aspect… a long, lonely road, fuelled only by faith and gratitude… stepping stones that would pave way, to brighter grades and gateways.
My story is too long, to navigate, through these pages. It has been a costly, meant-to-be education, that chimes value from real-life, hands-on, on-the-ground experience. CHO2go is everything I am and everything I ever plan, to be. It is a pouring of my love, purpose, passion and knowledge… the go-to space and touchstone, for people and business.
CHO2go is a proactive action-plan, for fast-tracking the power of your positive. Why wait for adversity, to make you realize your true strengths and motivators? Why are we programmed to believe that we must plough through the dark, before we live in our light? We live in such a fast-paced, high-demand, rapidly-changing world, laced in shiny objects, flying saucers, charmers and marketers… it’s difficult for anyone to unleash their true fold, never mind pushing what they’re really made of, forward. With me, feeling lost, will go back to being rare and not nestle, into common!!! will enable you to find your groove and live your ‘sweet spot’!
My focus is, energy medicine and the science of humanity and I am dedicated to the people, the planet, the animals and our business. CHO2go makes a difference, by proactively reducing the risk of mental health illness, disease and addiction, in individuals, to collectively improve, Canada’s GNH Gross National Happiness!!! It takes advantage of what we know, so we can prosper, more, and live Happier.
So… who am I?… what can I do?……
I am a leader, an entrepreneur, a businesswoman, a writer, a guide and a catalyst. What I have stepped through, both professionally and personally, is vast, diverse and very unparalleled. I am also a dichotomy of a science-brain and a woohoo! In entertainment, I might be regarded as more than a triple threat, however, in business, there is no such comparable because being a generalist AND a specialist, in business management, technology, people, woohoo AND service, is basically unheard of… there really are no candidates!!! My offerings are fruitful, organic, content-rich, thought-provoking, powerful AND timeless!!!
I am an idea person and I love pushing the envelope when it comes to business! I have been gifted with two phenomenal careers in two highly-competitive industries, and as an entrepreneur and investor, I have experienced the highs and lows of many risky spaces.
During the first 12 years of my corporate career, I climbed the corporate ladders of oil & gas companies. In 1990, I joined the technology craze and spent 6+ years designing, implementing and marketing oil & gas software solutions, at two of the ‘big six’ accounting firms, Coopers & Lybrand and Ernst & Young. When EY exited the software business, I forged ahead to grow my own multi-million dollar management consulting company. As a leading, second-to-none service provider, I served over 125 N.A. Oil & Gas and IT corporations and employed over 350 individuals, my forte being, mergers and acquisitions; business planning and management; asset integration, software design, implementations and conversions; and change and people management.
As an entrepreneur, I’ve participated in the purchase and development of 9 inner-city properties, and marketed and promoted 17 music concerts. I was also fortunate to be briefly mentored, by a leading sports motivator/author and speaker, from the UK, and spent 3 seasons, exploring non-traditional, motivational techniques, for amateur hockey and soccer sports teams. For 25+ years, I have studied, as a student and practitioner, under the teachings, guidance and mentoring, of Feng Shui Master, Mr. David Lai. I am also an acute intuitive.
CHO2go is a movement, that favours your positive!!!
It is way ahead of it’s time, yet a lag, in timing.
Happiness… I am a writer!!!… I first encountered GNH Gross National Happiness (GNH) in Spain, in 2004. Though originally founded in Bhutan, in 1978, it was the UK who really began shedding light, and traction, to GNH.the research, notions, concepts, benefits, and opportunities, of GNH. Governments were coming to realize that the emotional state of a population really does have impact on a country’s health and performance.
By 2004, I, myself, was noticing an emotional shift in the overall happiness of the vast cross-section of Baby Boomers, and post-Baby Boomers, I was serving. I could visibly see that, in addition to aging, our personal strive for wealth and stature, was gradually taking it’s toll on individuals, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Interestingly, over the decades, Canada’s wealth per capita has rapidly accelerated yet there’s been very little gain in the overall happiness of the people. Today, our mental health professionals are predicting we will all experience some sort of severe mental health ‘issue’, in our lifetimes.
I’ve written my book, Flow With Your CHO, to guide individuals and organizations in realizing the many proactive, proven and tangible, benefits of happiness. I make a difference by helping to proactively reduce the risk of mental health illness, disease and addiction, in individuals, to collectively increase the GNH, in a nation.
Our forefathers fought for our freedom to live happy and now we may have to march for our spirits. Happiness is more than just a feeling and more like an innate intelligence and success is no longer the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success!!! Time to relish in the fruits of our labour and enjoy this new promised land that we’ve toiled to deliver.
