Imagine finding your future career story, through exploring the things you love doing. Or imagine being surrounded every day at work, with things you love, because you chose a career that provided that atmosphere.

When I see people in their zone and loving their work, I wish everyone could feel their energy. I believe we can make this happen for kids by getting them started in the right direction early. By providing information and inspiration  about career options they can pursue, we can help them build their dreams.

I founded My Future Story to help kids explore careers. Writing books, delivering workshops and school presentations as well as producing career exploration fairs, I expand the career possibilities students can imagine. I help build thousands of future stories.

Students need more information and it is so exciting to deliver it! After years of consulting with businesses around the world, I synthesized the magic needed for most people to engage and enjoy their careers. They need jobs filled with activities they enjoying doing and feel a strong drive to continue to perfect. It also helps when they are surrounded by a mission they believe in or an industry they personally connect to their interests.

As a blogger, author and public speaker I use these skills to do what I love, while helping others too.

As an entrepreneur, and former talent management software CEO, I have seen and experienced the benefits of truly enjoying the work one has in one’s career. By spending a career connecting with people, mentoring, traveling, selling, marketing and helping with the design of software, I loved what I did. I know the value of connecting your interests into your job.

My creativity is usually done sitting on the back porch watching my rescued jack russell, Molly, chase squirrels. Or, I am writing up, over and around my cat, also a rescue critter. I live in Southlake, Texas with my husband and son, neither which have ever been homeless or in need of rescue.
