This lovingly maintained, updated and picturesque Tudor nestled in the Canyon Of Dreams privately set off the street is rich in music, art and history. In the late sixties and early seventies, an impromptu collection of musicians colonized a eucalyptus-scented canyon deep in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles and melded folk, rock, and savvy American pop into a sound that conquered the world as thoroughly as the songs of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones had before them. Thirty years later, the music made in Laurel Canyon continues to pour from radios, iPods, and concert stages around the world. As described by Author Michael Walker in Laurel Canyon: The Inside Story of Rock-and-Roll’s Legendary Neighborhood.

#CoachingAMA

I am not a life coach by professional schooling or training, I teach and share through my own experiences.

My personal experiences make me somewhat of an authority. I have found success and what works through my own experiences. Of course, what works for me might not work for another, but what else do we have then examples in life. Real Life examples I believe are much stronger and more helpful than anything I might come from a text book. Real life over science for me.

A Few More of My #AMA Responses

I want to work with clients who want to participate in their own growth. When someone asks for my help I put 110% into helping them to achieve their goals, so I expect they want the same for themselves. If they don’t really want to succeed, I know right away. I currently coach for free. I don’t charge. When you don’t charge for your services, people don’t feel they need to follow through. It is unfortunate, as when I agree to, or offer to help another person I ask them to follow up with me to let me know how things are going and what successes they have had or things they have done that we previously discussed, but they don’t. It is upsetting to me, as I am here for them, and when they fail to follow through it is disheartening. Especially, as I am here for them, it is not for me but for them. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

It’s always a bit disappointing because it is in my nature to want to help others succeed. Silly I know. If a person does not want to help themselves, why should I care, but I do. Go figure.

XOXO! #AMA Debbi

Don’t be critical of yourself, or your goals.

Believe in yourself.

Affirm and reaffirm your goals everyday.

Don’t second guess yourself.

Be positive and believe.

#AMA Thank you, Debbi

I suggest downloading a Vision Board App on your phone so it is readily accessible.  You can also take notes on your phone, but a visual of a vision board is very powerful… Visualize, Internalize, Verbalize, Realize.

Dream Believe Share Achieve

sleep, sip, spin

How Do You Re Enter after a Business Trip or Vacation?

SLEEP, SIP, SPIN
For me, I stay up until it’s bedtime.

First Off… A green juice. I like Ginger, Kale, Lemon and Apple, or some variation. I also order a Tumeric, Lemon and or Ginger Shot, it’s easy to find in New York and LA, not so much in Italy or at least in Cernobbio.

Next Up… I sweat it out. SoulCycle and Peloton depending where I land. When in New York visiting my daughter, I go to SoulCycle and like this morning, I spun at home on our PELOTON.

And it seems as if my body is now working on an international clock, if that is such a thing. I basically go to bed at 12 or 12:30 AM – when I travel ( if i am home i am in bed by 10. ) and wake up between 4 and 5 AM, no matter what time zone I am in.

So there you have it… SLEEP SIP SPIN — Happy Traveling!

John Savage and Me! A great guy!
We chatted real estate. I have had the opportunity to cross paths with him twice now.
I still recall watching Deer Hunter when I was in Junior High with my friend MaryAnn.
