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

A Course About People

Thomas Leonard (the late great pioneer of personal coaching) sent out a weekly email – Five Lessons. A COURSE ABOUT PEOPLE.

At two in the morning like clockwork they arrived.

Short quips about people’s habits, their attitudes and emotional inner workings. Life’s hiccups. A person’s warmth – their coolness and all.

I kept them, a years worth of lists. Some pushy. All interesting – and deep.

And now, nearly a decade later, I’m digging down into this archive, witnessing Thomas Leonard’s leanings, remembering him and his genius – and learning about people anew.

I’m happy, I saved them all.


People look for traits in others that they lack in themselves.

People don’t buy things that they don’t understand.

People are incredibly resilient – they recover from the most difficult things.

People who keep acting the same way keep getting the same things.

People are unique and will receive the most joy from a life designed around this uniqueness.

People can change very quickly-and change doesn’t have to be painful.

People are in awe of the unknown.

People feel hatred when the core is fear.

People believe that it is normal to be in a couple.

People feel sad when their bodies do not work.

People who communicate their expectations are very likely to have them met.

People enjoy learning except when there is a test.

People are always looking for ways to improve their time in this world.

People do not want to feel or be alone.

People for centuries have found the moon to be mysterious in one way or another.
