Vice President, Membership - Michelle Scott

Stop for a moment... and bring to your awareness one thing in your life that you spend a LOT of time and energy thinking about.  (One of my clients said weight.)

Next, what is the percentage of time that you spend thinking about that one thing?  (That same client said 90% and mostly negative.)

If you could free up that percentage of time and energy or some portion of it to use to focus elsewhere, perhaps on something you've always wanted to do or create, but haven't yet, what would that mean to you?  (Yes, take a moment to answer that.)  (My client took bold next action steps building her photography business.)

Well, I specialize in helping people identify areas that are holding them back in life or business, get to the deeper underlying meaning of that, and clear it freeing up vast amounts of space to create in and energy to take action with.  I then facilitate them to discover and actually take action in directions that they could never have imagined before creating more purpose, meaning, direction, focus, and fun in their lives.

Chair Women Positions:

Deepen the Connection – Kate Hagerty

Professionals hire Kate to unleash their YES, because most of them are just going through the motions, sacrificing themselves in every area of their lives, and they’ve given up on what they believe is possible for themselves, so she helps them to get clear on, and stand fully in, who they are, why they are here and how they can step fully into their own greatness. 
Bottom line, Kate helps them get on track, on purpose and living their best, most authentic lives. If you would like to get unstuck and are ready to make a change, schedule your complimentary 45 minutes Unleash Your YES Session today by visiting
