In this webinar I am going to show you 5 Essential Steps to a Successful Mid-Life Transition to help you get unstuck, bring clarity and direction towards a successful life transition. I am excited because the strategies I am going to show you today are proven by not only myself but also many of my clients who have found greater fulfillment and harmony with an invigorated passion and energy. So I am so delighted that you are here with me today.

Life transitions can be very complex and can cover a broad scope of circumstances, so my primary focus in this presentation is for women in their late 30’s to mid 50’s…. considered mid-life or the middle years. I work with all age groups and genders, yet my focus is on you today and this important time in your life.

Significant life events have often happened for women in their middle years such as:

  • Burnout – from a career or job – stress will takes it’s toll
  • Marriage/Relationship Changes – it happens and it’s not about who is right or wrong…it is about you now and finding your happiness and worthiness.
  • Empty Nest – Kids who have grown up. Moved on with their own lives whether it be further education, work, or have started their own families….
  • Health Issues – having focused on others & not properly caring for yourself
  • Or you are simply Ready For A Change – Wanting the next phase of life to be more meaningful

Our crucial ‘middle years’ can be complex and intricate as life has happened. Often, we may struggle with disillusionment as things haven’t taken place as we thought and may require assistance in ‘finding our way’ during this unique phase of life.

I would be thrilled to have you join me today on this webinar as my strategies have helped many women in their middle years as their Life Transition Sherpa. 





Merry Christmas and a _______ New Year!

First and foremost I want to take this moment to wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart!

I am grateful for the relationship we have whether it be though personal friendship, social media, or any other means.

I imagine you are wondering why I put: “________ New Year!” in the subject line?

The reason is, I would like you to consider giving yourself a unique gift this holiday season.

A gift that requires vulnerability.

What do you really desire your New Year to be like?

Of course there will always be challenges, yet what type of overall theme do you desire for 2017?

What type of words come to mind to describe your year ahead. Prosperity? Healthy? Family? Benevolent?  Debt Free? Abundance? Influential? Clarity of Purpose? Author? Etc. I encourage you to be vulnerable and connect with your heart.

Take some time to write these down on a piece of paper or even create a Dream Board.  CLICK HERE for ideas about a Dream Board or Google it on your own.

Dream Board Example

Dream Board Example

Make sure you put your Dream Board somewhere that you can see everyday. Speak the words, touch the dream board, meditate on what is there and take steps everyday to move in the direction of your desires and dreams.

I would also like to challenge you to ask others about their desires and dreams for 2017. Listen to them. They may even ask you about your dreams and desires! If they don’t that is okay too….. 🙂 People are people and not all have developed a skill of listening. As you listen to others, things in you will percolate further and bring increased clarity.

If you need further assistance or a coach to bring clarity in your life, please connect with me at  I have helped and am assisting many others as a Certified Life Coach and Whole Brain Practitioner.

Once again, I really encourage you to give yourself the gift indicated above this Christmas break and let the overflow of your gift pour into the lives of others!

Blessings and love,


Facing Stage 4 cancer, couple elopes on Aquabus

Often when we open our hearts to new possibilities and get out of our comfort zones, many amazing things can transpire and interesting doors can swing open. This happened to me recently, as I have been serving many couples prepare and officiate their weddings.  CTV News in Vancouver, BC did a story on a wedding I officiated last weekend. Here it is:


The Twelfth Man

Brian Olynick —  February 14, 2014 — Leave a comment

Today I’m featuring my Valentine of 28 years….my hubby Brian Olynick! Brian is a “stay true to you” kind of guy and is a talented metaphoric/pictorial writer/speaker and thinker! I love his R1 brain! Often I misspell his name…brain/brian 🙂  Needless to say, I love him and how he thinks! Take time to read this excellent write up and I hope it encourages you as it has me.

The 2014 Superbowl winners, the Seattle Seahawks, are well recognized for their ‘twelfth man.‘ The Seahawks scored twelve seconds into the start of the game on an offensive blooper by the opposing team, the Denver Broncos. The score was contributed to the ‘twelfth man’ of the hawks. As many of you know, each team is allowed eleven players on the field at a time, whether on offense or defense. The ‘twelfth man’ of the Seahawks actually are the fans in attendance!

Century Link Field, Seattle’s stadium, is recognized as the loudest in the National Football League, thus the slogan the‘twelfth man.’ Visiting teams dread playing in Century Link as their offense struggles to hear the audibles by their quarterback which gives Seattle a crazy edge. When the hawks are on offense the ‘twelfth man’ is quiet as a church mouse so ‘their’ quarterback can sound off clear audibles for his team. For the record, the Seattle Seahawks are a great team with the best defense in the league…..the ‘twelfth man’ adds to their greatness.

When you have a ‘twelfth man’ factor, other good things can happen. On the kick off to start the second half, Seattle ran the kickoff to score a touchdown….guess how many seconds into the half…twelve seconds!

There are 2 twelve hour segments on our clock to add up to the 24 hours in a day. Twelve can represent that time is on our side.

The ‘twelfth man’ of the Seattle Seahawks are significant fans with names and faces that create an edge for their team. We all need a ‘twelfth man’ in our lives that cheer for us, celebrate us, encourage us. We need to be the ‘twelfth man’ for others too! It stimulates us to be great, be confident, walk with authority. Take a moment to recognize those who are your ‘twelfth man’ in this season of your life. Also, be cognizant of who you are cheering on and celebrating. Let them know you are part of their ‘twelfth man!’

The ‘twelfth man’ of Seattle all have the common passion for football. Although, within the common love and interest of the game is great diversity, such as defense, offense, coaching, special teams, etc. We all need to know what our distinctives and unique qualities are to give us an edge in our game. Kristen would love to assist you in this with her signature Discover Your Brilliance to help give you an edge in your life.

Celebrating you!
