“Happy to Be ME!”©

Joy is a fundamental human state. Yet many of us struggle with how to be and how to stay happy.  We wrestle with doubt and fear in our daily lives.  We fight “negative” emotions, like feeling depressed, anxious, angry or fearful.  Many of us are struggling with financial limitations, lack of inspiration, health issues, major life transitions and more.  It’s no wonder we often feel frazzled, overwhelmed, and UNhappy.

That’s where Happy to Be ME! can help!  Through this motivational keynote, Valerie guides the audience to an unbreakable connection with their authentic source of happiness.  She’s developed a simple 4-step process that will help anyone who applies it get and stay happy no matter what’s going on around them.  Participants will:

  • Explore the rules of the happiness game and which one relationship is the real key to winning it.
  • Discover how to clean house so emotional Junk-in-the-Trunk™ isn’t getting in the way.
  • Create a new model for being happy.
  • Adopt practical ways to overcome depression, anxiety, fear and anger and keep the joy flowing abundantly forever.

“Lighten Up & Let Go:  Claim Your Vibrant Life!”©

HAPPY ~ FULFILLED ~ VIBRANT ~ HEALTHY ~ INSPIRED ~ SUCCESSFUL.  All of us want these words to fully describe our lives, but let’s face it – for most of thus these are fleeting experiences at best.  What is getting in the way of having the life of our dreams?  Through experiential exercises including movement, music, meditation, and interactive discussion, Valerie guides participants to:

  • Get clarity on why things aren't working in their lives
  • Identify the deepest junk-in-the-trunk that needs to be transformed from darkness to light

“Making the Head-to-Heart Transition©:  The Key to Creating Your Desires”

Most people brought up in the West value intellect over emotion, thoughts over feelings.  Over time, this robs us of our ability to feel compassion for ourselves and others, to hear our Divine and intuitive voice within, and ultimately to tap into our innate sense of direction and vibrational ability to attract and create that which would bring us the most joy, peace, satisfaction, and success.  Through experiential exercises and interactive discussion, including emotional scoring and Think/Feel/Act Analysis, Valerie guides participants to:

  • Identify their level of heart disconnection
  • Uncover blocks to experiencing the six primary emotions fully
  • Develop an ears-not-necessary ability to tune-in to their hearts
  • Create personal re-programming tools to reconnect to their hearts

“Darkness Goes to Light:  Bringing Truth and Peace into Disappointment and Despair” ©

Many of us are dealing with major loss, upheaval, and even chaos that are impacting our lives in significant ways.  How can we live in peace, happiness and contentment in the midst of personal financial collapse, environmental disaster, employment stress, and break-downs within family structure?  Importantly, the ability to avoid getting mired-in-the-“muck” of our lives is critical to our ability to transform it.  Valerie will guide participants to engage in courageous introspection using various interactive and experiential techniques to:

  • Mine the “muck’ to examine what’s really there
  • Explore the ways we engage in resistance that actually keeps us mired
  • Identify the ruts, obstacles, hurdles we’ve adopted that get in the way of our excavation

“Create the Vessel to Receive Your Good” ©

In the wake of the popularity of “The Secret,” many people are disillusioned from not having had success thinking their way to a better life.  Yet, the desire is still there - we all want to create the lives of our dreams more easily and effortlessly.  We want fewer struggles, less disappointment, less disconnection.  How do we increase our ability to attract that which we seek?  Through movement, meditation, and other experiential exercises including Into the Looking Glass© and the You-ness of You©, Valerie guides participants to:

  • Explore attachments and how they are helping or hindering them
  • Determine the quality of relationship with self
  • Calculate their TAR Factor™ and adopt behaviors to raise it
  • Create an intention and gratitude practice and commit to ongoing engagement

“Intuitive Leadership:  Getting Out of Your Mind Results”©
Success is an inside-out endeavor, and it’s rooted in the Integrated Leader.  Personal leadership impacts the business at all levels.  This isn’t about “woo woo” or simply a “kinder/gentler” personality of a leader.  It’s about vision, strength and decisiveness born from a leader who is using the power of the intellect in concert with the wisdom of the heart. Without this kind of integration, leaders risk having difficulty making optimum choices, are unlikely to create a dynamic connection to their teams, strategic partners, and Boards, and may struggle to achieve ultimate personal and business success.  Through this keynote, Valerie helps audiences:

  • Learn a new definition of leadership
  • Assess the key drivers in their leadership style
  • Integrate their innate guidance system to make better decisions and connect with others

“Brand Mastery:  The Ins Outs and Upside Downs of Running a Brand” ©

  • The difference between strategies and tactics and how they work in concert to impact results
