Success is Sweetest

“Your support, passion, and no bullshit approach, is such a killer combination. And your method is so creative and exciting in a way that I’ve never, ever found other coaching to be. WOW, wow, wow!” ~ Kana, Career Mentoring Intensive

Hello! I’m Janice. I’m a life coach based in New York.

I help ARTISTS, ACTORS, MAKERS, and SEEKERS start, test, tweak and finish amazing life projects.

This is where you get to translate your amazingness into a tangible, real-world project or life-changing experience. Something so fresh & original, you won’t believe it came out of YOU.

(Hey, so you want to act on Broadway, bike ride through Thailand, or build an Empire? Totally reasonable.)

This is my online home, where all the good stuff happens.

Ha. Who am I kidding? The good stuff happens offline, in real time. But this is where you can get to know me, find out how to WORK & PLAY with me, sign up for NOTES FROM THE TRAIL, and grab a free tool (or two).

I’m so happy you’re here.
Because now we get to make things.
And making things is the sweetest.



A Small Dose Of Sweet Things

Hello, 3 Day Weekend

Starting now through Labor Day, Americans will consume 7 billion hot dogs. YIKES. That’s 818 hot dogs eaten every second with Los Angeles residents eating more hot dogs than any other city? Say what?!

Okay, I was thinking there must be a nobler way to spend 72 hours. So, I came up with 4 ways to enjoy the long weekend.

Out Of The Past: There’s a feeling that our smart-phones and social media is disrupting our happiness, and that technology is getting in the way of our creativity. So a 3-day weekend is an especially good time to set some tech guidelines and give the digital use a rest. Try going old school and shutting off ALL gadgets for one day. ONE DAY. Instead, break out the garden supplies, the baking ingredients, or a trail guide. Stretch yourself and get into the zone. You know, that place where everything flows. (If this doesn’t work pour yourself a stiff one. Yup, intermitten cocktails might be called for.)

Natural Highs: Inject a dose of pleasure by taking time out before everyone wakes up. (Go solo, call a friend, grab the dog(s) and begin the day by catching an unfreaking-believable sunrise.

Backyard Vacation: There’s no place like home and everything you need is right outside your door. Consider taking a micro-adventure that can be slipped in and enjoyed in just a few hours. Like catching a double feature, sitting on a park bench for an ice cream break, or tripping on over to the nearest farmers market/shoestore for a mini spree. It’s the little things.

Minimal Sensibility: Strip away. Then keep stripping. Plan for one thing. Think breakfast in bed, writing a love letter with a cool new pen, or staying up all night with your favorite page turner. Make this your sole mission and the epicenter of your weekend. No fuss. More fun.

An occasional feel good splurge, like borrowing a friend’s kid for the day, (my personal fave) and the act of tinkering a bit (whatever that means) can make a world of difference.

Anyway, be guided by your own ideas. Because the pursuit of happiness is a state of mind and how we choose to look at the world.

Go. Enjoy it to the max.



I believe that goals are more delightful (and do-able) when paired with coffee — or wine.

You can meet with me for a leisure coffee or wine date — face-to-face in NYC, the Hudson Valley, or over the phone/Skype.

We can break your amazing project into micro steps, zero in on some positivity boosters and creative strategies, or chart an in-depth and detailed trail map for the next year of your life & career.

And just so you know: I’m freakishly good at spotting future-trends. Including what’s next / hot / vital / meaningful, for you & your work.

You’ll bring:
:: An empty notebook.
:: A recording app to relive all the bloomin’ insights.
:: A curious mind and an open heart.

I’ll provide the coffee and wine – and some savory treats too …

One date = $250 for me and $10,000 worth of ideas and do-it-now steps, for you. (What a deal!)

To make a date, write to me. We’ll chat & set it up. Simple as that.
