Are you the Wind or the Sun?

May I share a story with you? It’s one you may already know, but one that I think applies to our pursuit of a new career, a new job, or any dream.

Can you talk about your strengths?

“My boss doesn’t value me or my input.” How many times have you had that thought? How many times have you griped to your friends or coworkers, “This company just won’t let me do what I’m capable of!”

If not now, when?

If you have ever considered making a change in your life or your career, you may have asked yourself ‘if not now, when?” This article is different from what I usually write, this is MY story, and it’s the moment when I seriously considered ‘if not now, when?’

What stories do you tell about your strengths?

I’m currently studying to become a Certified Story Coach, because as I have learned through experience and study, the stories we tell ourselves are the key to unearthing our worth. They also contain the keys to who we are, what we do, and why we do it. One of the first questions we learned to . . . → Read More: What stories do you tell about your strengths?

Are you afraid of your fears?

Do any of these sound familiar to you?

“What if no one wants what I have to offer? Maybe I should apply for these other jobs, just in case.”

“What if I’m just not enough?”

“What if this is a horrible mistake?”

Or perhaps…

“They say I should just be grateful I have a job, . . . → Read More: Are you afraid of your fears?

Client Stories

What did you need at the time you hired Lori?


I wanted to work in my industry and didn't know how to progress any further than I was. I knew I had much experience that could be put in the industry of my choice but not how to parlay that experience. I needed guidance.

What did you and Lori do together?


Many, many things. Overall, to get clear in my mind what I offered and really what I wanted in a work environment. Every week was another epiphany after another. One of my favorites was the "knowing your core values". Having had some experience on this subject I was all ready to dive-in. Core Values is key. Knowing your core values. 

Lori makes it so easy to pinpoint. One time we were speaking about something else and we both realized...OMG...that is a core value for me. I hadn't written it down before, but discovered later that if ever a core value fit me...it was the one I mentioned at that time.  Knowing that piece of information also answered a long standing question in my head.  One of the "why's" as to my constant upset with other places I had worked.

What were the results from working with Lori?


Many things. One is a great looking resume. I thought, wow, I look good and it was all from work I had already done elsewhere but didn't know how to say it or present it. Another is the clarity of knowing where I will feel good when I do work. What I really want and with the kind of people I really want to work with on a daily basis. This entire process is so valuable. The best money I ever spent and I am not kidding or exaggerating. I was only hoping it would be valuable and it really was valuable.< I know stuff and it has value and is marketable. Lori showed me those things and it gives me confidence.

Anything else you’d like to add?


Lori delivers above and beyond. The highest quality of exchange, 'more than you expected.' I told my friends this over and over: 'I wish I had her 10-20-even 30 years ago.' Every one, and I mean EVERYONE, needs a Lori. Her understanding,patience, how she problem solves, putting things in simple terms, was mind blowing. I wish I could that well. I present a problem and she could turn it around and yes...another epiphany.

Lori, is worth every penny. It isn't about a title. It is about enjoying everyday doing work you love with people you like and are like minded. You'll know what you are looking for when you interview.  I never say this, but I will say it here. Lori is a major key into the rest of my life doing what I always wanted to do. That is: Being happy doing what I do, everyday. Something I have been saying for years. Allowing Sherlock...to be Sherlock.  Finding my people. They are out there and now I know what I am looking for in that respect.

LORI ROCKS!!!!!!
