Unleashing Your Potential through the Power of Words

Welcome to My Third Act

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. - Andre Gide

In my first act, I launched my medical communications business. In my second act, I became a full-time professor of Journalism, teaching my beloved public relations students.

And now … I am ready for my third act -- to become a motivational speaker on a national stage, writing books and giving speeches to help others find their passion. Indeed, I am ready to sail outside MY comfort zone, and away from the security of MY shore.

Are you ready to join me? 

The Dr. BS blog is a key component of my motivational work. I hope to serve as your guide to help you live an authentic life – to show you how to honor your personal and professional passions by finding the courage to embrace change.

If you are feeling stuck, you are not alone. Without a doubt, it is often easier to stay in one place rather than explore new possibilities. Yet easier doesn’t necessarily translate into happier.

I want to help you become “unstuck,” to see the challenges in your personal and professional life not as roadblocks but as opportunities. I want to share how to take CONTROL of your life, and take the steps necessary to both identify and achieve your goals and aspirations. Together, let’s discover your passions, and create a roadmap to make those passions a reality.

I am ready to set sail. Are you?
