The opportunity to tell this story is exciting! I hope it inspires you to take steps toward more THRIVING!
Why the word THRIVE?
For me THRIVE is a feeling that combines contentment, joy and invigoration. I firmly believe we are at our best when we have enough emotional space to pursue the things that “matter most”. What “matters most”? You tell me. The answer is different for each of us. I encourage you to identify the things that matter most and work to free up emotional space so that you can focus on those things. This is when you will start to THRIVE!
The Short Story
If you are interested in the long version contact me and I’ll share more. For now, I’ll say that after more than ten years in stressful, corporate sales roles that required too much travel, I found myself burned out. I was not THRIVING. I decided to break a cycle that was obviously not working for me. This decision lead me to quit my job and start my own business. This change resulted in incredible feelings of relief and invigoration. I am passionate about helping other busy professionals experience those same feelings. This is the reason I founded THRIVE.
My vision is to see more people experiencing true “work life balance” by creating more emotional space for what matters most. THRIVE supports this effort by providing practical services, solutions and resources related to SOP (Simplification, Organization, Prioritization).
You can’t buy time. True or False?
THRIVE is a concierge and personal assistance company designed to offering help with day to day tasks and errands. So, the answer is yes. You can literally buy time. That said my approach is to make it less about actual time and more about the emotional space. It is almost impossible to focus on the important things if we are stressed, over committed and overwhelmed. I work with clients to identify areas of opportunity to simplify, improve efficiency and realign priorities. It is amazing how a few simple adjustments can free up time and in turn emotional space.

The typical American lifestyle tends to be out of balance. We pride ourselves on being overly busy and working long hours, leaving less and less time for our personal lives. As a result, we are chronically stressed, sick and more unhappy than ever. Even if you love your job, that doesn’t mean you should have to forfeit time with your family, friends and most of all yourself.
“Americans have embraced work to such an extent that it’s having a detrimental impact on their health and family life.”
