Finding ways forward.
I show change agents how to improve their communities, businesses and lifestyles one solution at a time.
In 2007 I founded Better Me, Inc. a not for profit corporation to help individuals and organizations with common issues that face all teams, families, and companies. The supporters and audience of Better Me, Inc. has grown to become The Xstream Network Live (TXNL), with an experienced team of leaders (TXNLExecs) providing information, tips, resources and coaching for almost any need. Together we are the solution.
I've spoken before 60k people and trained teams of 5-50. It doesn't matter how large or small the audience, I'm committed to seeing people own their power and be the change in their particular situation.
I believe everyone has a superhero inside them and I am passionate about helping those who want to find their undiscovered talents and gifts.
