Looking for clarity and simplicity? Are you frustrated or uncertain about what to do next as a Christ-follower in a post-Christian world?
Resources available: Personal, professional, & horse-related.
Authors, entrepreneurs, and everyone else (including horse owners) have one very big thing in common – the need to master connection and relationship to achieve goals. Do the folks you speak to listen? Successfully working with family, colleagues, clients (and horses) requires being other-directed, offering something of value, and creating personal connection.
Do you know how to earn a potential reader’s or client’s attention? Can you reliably get your children, spouse, or horse to focus on what you’re trying to communicate? First, they have to know you’re there, know you’re trustworthy, and believe you care. Communication must be clear, concise, and simple.
- An aspiring Christian author struggling to begin?
- A horse-owner with an uncooperative horse?
- Stuck in first gear with your business?
- Considering ministry but not sure if you have a calling or desire to volunteer?
- Without a succinct mission statement? (A critical tool.)
- Wrestling with the concept of making a living sharing Christian messages?
- Not sure what you want but know you haven’t got it yet?
- Trying to move your horse ministry to the next level but can’t get there?
If you want something to change, you have to change something. If you knew what you need to do, are you sure you’re willing? Everyone has unmastered challenges. You know things I don’t, and I know a thing or two you don’t — and neither of us knows what we don’t know. I share my tools and insights to help Christian authors, entrepreneurs, and horse owners find clarity, establish goals, set strategies, and stay accountable to the message or purpose God gave them.
Staying on message is a daily discipline. I struggle the same way you do. Serving you helps keep me accountable.
My passion is working with capable, invested individuals and small groups. I’ve taught large seminars, spoken to a thousand people at one time, and judged horse shows in the US and Europe. After seven years in ministry, that’s no longer my business model. It took me years to discover the formula for success. Let me help your path forward be smoother, faster, and more direct – while carefully stewarding your resources.
From Amazon footnote to best-selling author
In late 2016, after seven years of ministry, I was an Amazon footnote. Today I’m a best-selling author as well as a World and National Champion horse trainer and breeder. Unlike most, I made money in the horse business. Before that I was a business consultant and motivational speaker. In other words, I’m a serial entrepreneur. That means I know how to set and achieve goals. My purpose is to help you so you can help others. That’s the purpose of life. Some call it the Golden Rule. As a Christian writer, I know where it’s found in the Bible (Matthew 7:12).
For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more. – Luke 12:48
What do horses have to do with God, success, and relationship?
Unless you have one in the barn, horses are metaphor. They’re as simple and silly as three year old children but wise as Yoda. My husband nicknamed me the analogy queen because I have an illustration (analogy?) for everything. The book of Ecclesiastes is analogy. Or is it metaphor? Do you confuse illustration, metaphor, analogy, and allegory? I do. But let’s not sweat the small stuff. Analogy helps us grasp concepts without challenging our egos.
Aside from size, what’s the biggest difference between horses and people? Horses don’t lie to themselves or anyone else. They’re far more honest than we, but they also – Love. Mourn. Scheme. Frustrate. Delight. Pout. Rebel. Negotiate. Delight. Give up. Seek connection. And fear.
Fear is a biggie, if not the biggest biggie, for people and horses.
That’s what my work and books are about. Success. Communication. Love. Faith. And helping you face and overcome fears, achieve your dreams, and make your journey one of daily joy.
