Blue shirtIf you have ever wondered if business success and life fulfillment can coexist. The answer is yes! It is not only possible but it is how life is intended to be experienced.

I have worked with people across the economic and business spectrum from front line employees to CEOs. I often find intelligent and ambitious people to be the ones that are ready, and with a little trusted guidance, are most likely to find success and fulfillment in business and in life.

Your future is not prewritten. Your destiny is not predetermined. If you're looking for that answer to taking your business and your life to the next level, then I may be just the person you should see.

My mission is to make a real difference in the lives of those who are ready. If that's you, then don't put it off any longer. Let's start moving you to that next level of success and fulfillment.

Kirsten Anderson - Follow the Fun to Facilitate Success

Kirsten AndersonKirsten Anderson’s career has always followed the fun — from helping out in her mom’s preschool, corporate beginnings in movie theatre management, to 25 years as an entrepreneur in the toy industry. She opened her own toy store, curating the best quality toys and games from around the world. Quickly she became known as Canada’s white-lab-coat-wearing Toyologist, the go-to source of advice for play on Global News.

After traveling the world in search of precious playthings, winning National Toy Store of the year, and a ballooning obsession with pouring over child development and play research, it was time for a change. Kirsten sold her beloved toy store and took a leap into the unknown with an evolved mission of bringing the benefits of play primarily to children, expanding it to adults who she sees are also experiencing a serious play and fun deficit — especially at work.

With this lifelong love of playing with ideas and problems Kirsten played to her strengths to create social change and unlock potential in teams founding Integrate Play Solutions. Engagement and creativity are foundations in all of her Lego® Serious Play® and Empathy Toy facilitations, professional speaking, training and coaching to organizations, education, and communities globally. For those companies interested in increasing their bottom line Kirsten speaks to Creativity/Innovation, Leadership, Curiosity, Culture, and the playful mindset.

Always a passionate advocate of play for children while also breaking down barriers to playfulness for adults, Kirsten is building bridges to success one fun (LEGO®) block at a time.

Jackie Simmons - From Secret to Success

Jackie SimmonsJackie Simmons has an Attitude:

If you’re feeling blocked in any area of your life, it is time to “Find it, Fix it, and Get Profitable!” 

Being a Secret Can Suck Your Life & Your Business Down the Drain. Removing the “Cloak of Invisibility” from her business skyrocketed Jackie from Secret to Success in 7 Months. BUT it didn’t start out that way. 

You know, there’s nothing like being an entrepreneur / business owner to stir up an emotional mess! For Jackie, being a single parent at the same time brought her smack up against mental and emotional blocks that shut her down each time she was making progress ... like an unacknowledged “elephant in the room." The “elephant” sat on her phone so she couldn’t make sales calls, and distracted her so she couldn’t focus and finish projects. It trashed her hard work and stunk up her relationships. 

It was through learning to permanently resolve her own blocks that the “From Secret to Success” system was born. Jackie used the system to help first herself, and then her clients, to become Calm, Focused, & Profitable. 

Since the 1980s, Jackie Simmons has been helping small business owners and entrepreneurs tame the inner saboteurs that trample their profits and productivity and suck their sanity down the drain. These inner saboteurs show up as overwhelm, ineffective communication, lack of focus, and dismal sales. They sabotage productivity and can make it seem like there’s no way to be successful. The overwhelm alone can drain even the most seasoned entrepreneur, business owner, or manager. 

Readers grin, giggle and “GET IT” as Jackie guides them through the simple attitude shifts that produce higher profits, consistent actions, better teams, and happier relationships. Through her books, programs, and speaking, Jackie shares the quickest, most reliable path to becoming the Calm, Focused, Profit-Making Success that you were always meant to be.
