let's make magic happen!

I fell in love with New York when I moved here for six months in February 1994. It is a city with an energy all of its own. 

Would you like to spend a weekend in New York with me to bring your business vision to life?

Make sure to bring an Empire-planning State of Mind with you!

to plan your launch

join me in New York City


It's a city where dreams come true.  Where anything seems possible.

There is an energy that is palpable.  I felt it when I first walked into Central Park on a snowy day in February 1994.  I still feel that energy today, almost 30 years later.

I find myself inspired and elevated by New York City on a daily basis.

Everything seems heightened here.  From the intensity of the blue skies, to the majesty of the skyline, to the creativity coursing through the streets around Broadway and Times Square where most of the theaters are located.

New York City ...

Bringing a business idea to life is one of the most creative things you can do.

It still blows my mind that I had a crazy idea for a business in 2005 which became a thriving business that has generated a couple of million dollars in income. 

When I work with my launch clients, I encourage them to look at their business as a creative act.  Too often, we think of business as a very left-brain, logistical act but my experience has been that it can be a very creative practice.

I can't think of a better city to bring your vision to life.

Launching a business is one of the most creative acts I can imagine

I include a 3 month membership in The Lab with your Launch Weekend.

This will give you ongoing support, accountability and community as you launch your business.

3 months in
The Lab

New York City has THE most vibrant night life - Broadway shows, concerts, comedy and more.

We will have dinner and go and see a show together during your weekend in NYC.

Dinner and a Show

The Launch Retreat includes 8 hours of 1:1 coaching and empire plotting with me during two days in New York.  Plus 2 additional hours of 1:1 coaching to be scheduled within 2 months after our weekend together.

We will figure out your "why' for starting your business, the "who" you want to serve and the "how" you will do it.

Life + Business Coaching


what a launch retreat

This includes EVERYTHING that you need to launch your business:

We will create a website for you, set up all your business tools (email, scheduling and getting paid), create your social media graphics, help you to create your marketing plan, plus give you 9 extra months of support, accountability and community in the Lab!

Your Launch Pad

We can create a one-page website for you so that you can start sharing your business immediately.

The website will explain who you are, what you do and it will give prospective clients a way to connect with you.

A one-page website

As an optional extra, you can book a Photo Shoot while you are here.

New York is one of the most photographic cities in the world! It is a great backdrop for photos for your website and marketing.

are you ready to do this?

You've had an idea for a business for months or years, maybe even decades.  But, somehow, life keeps getting in the way and you never take action on it.

You are now beyond ready to bring your business vision to life.  You have realized that it would be much easier to escape for a weekend and focus 100% on launching your business instead of trying to find an hour here and there during your already busy life.
