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

Goals, Goals, Goals (and making ‘em happen)

Goals are not evil. Goals are pretty sexy. Goals get a bad rap … but I’d like to change all that.

If you’ve got an idea … or a creative project, or a life focus that needs to be simplified & spliced into remarkable wins, earnings + triumphs … we can work & play together for 90 mind-blowing days.

It all starts with a virtual coffee date, to prioritize your goals in order of importance and ease.

Then, it’s GO time.

You’ll get an inspired-new assignment from me with weekly prompts and check-ins. This way we stay in touch between sessions and keep you on track. AND we’ll ‘meet’ twice a month, all of it getting you closer to sweet, sweet completion.

You’ll be gobsmacked at how amazing you feel — and how much you can accomplish — when you use the big questions, romance the details, and learn how to build, build, build on your natural strengths, instead of fighting against ‘em.

Ready to go ga-ga for goals? Write to me and say hello.

We’ll chat. Set it up. #Boom.

See you at the starting line!


Change Your Words – Change Your World


Inside every word there’s a spiritual and psychological truth that is fundamental to our human development.


Words hurt. Words excite. Words incite. Words heal.

And most importantly? Words determine how we feel.

Do words/phrases like:

“I can’t.”
“It’s too hard”

…. fill up your vocabulary?

If these come tumbling out of your brain daily, you might be nixing the pleasure of a quest at the first sign of gridlock.

Do words/phrases like:

“I’m willing.”
“How can I?”
“Bring it ON!”

…. fill up your vocabulary?

These words open doors, nurturing the possibility of movement and adventure.

A single word (half empty or half full) can make a dramatic difference in how we engage in the world.

But choosing our words is not for the unconscious. You actually have to stop and think about it.

Sometimes we need to capture the ones that box us in and replace them with words or phrases that expand who we are. Words that help us rise up.

My personal favorites are often subtle distinctions that lead and empower. Good words that tilt me towards happiness.

Attraction vs. Seduction
Warrior vs. Worrier
Mastery vs. Perfection
Community vs. Network
Rigor vs. Stress
Adventure vs. Struggle
Way Power vs. Will power
Righteous vs. Anger
Strength vs. Force

Make it a good word day.

Start with something that inspires you. A historical speech, a noted poem, or a well-loved story.

Grab onto words that invite you to stretch. And polish the ones that keep you warm.

Go forth and be happy. This is our work. To tap into the power. To shape-change and rocket-launch. And to have a massively good time moving beyond our rickety words.
