What Matters Mondays – Dec 28, 2015

Hard to believe 2015 is coming to a close! Where does the time go? In today’s blog, I want to share with you a little bit about The Daring Way™ as well as a FREE offer you may want to take advantage of!

The year 2015 has been filled with incredible opportunities and experiences for me! I think the opportunity that continues to have the greatest impact on both myself and the participants is The Daring Way™ 6 week workshop series. People always come to the first session nervous, scared, unsure….and 6 weeks later they leave feeling more authentic, courageous, connected, compassionate and they find a tribe of people who they feel an incredible connection to. Here’s what a few participants have said:


THANK YOU…for the journey we have been on.  Every time I leave I feel so rejuvenated!  Your REALNESS and AUTHENTICITY are the things that make you true.   I feel safe with you and you guide me in ways that make things so much better.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you.


Danielle you have forever changed my life. My new reality is now a far better reality. It is a reality that is includes compassion and resiliency. It includes being vulnerable and focused towards connecting with my authentic self. This is still ‘work in progress’ but I am moving towards what I truly believe to be a better, more open-minded direction. I have an entire new vocabulary and now it is the foundation of my mindset and how I want to live. It is how I want to raise my children and what I want to bring to others’ lives. When we know better we do better.


I absolutely loved the Daring Way – the work is tough and thought provoking and deep and HARD but so needed and freeing. I am so grateful for you to have introduced it and delivered it to me.


Your passion for your work is inspiring, to all that surround you. You and The Daring Way™ have made such a huge difference in my life, I feel so much happier and am much more connected to “my people” it feels wonderful.


The Daring Way™ was the best thing I could have done for myself and my family. It has impacted me in so many ways! Danielle is so genuine and brings out the best in everyone. I feel so blessed….so blessed!


I loved the values, loved the conversation, I have learned so much just listening to other people and their stories and struggles….I know now I’m not alone!


From today until Friday, I am offering ONE FREE registration for 2016. I have one spot left in the group starting in January and my intuition spoke loudly saying that there is someone out there who wants to do this but due to finances is unable to at this time. If you feel that you are meant to be part of this January group, please send me a private message or email me with your WHY. Why do you feel you are ready to do this work? On January 1,2016 I will email the person selected to have this experience.

The Daring Way™

The dates are: January 5,12,26, Feb.2,9,16

Time: 6:30-9:30PM each evening

Location: MY retreat space just north of St.Albert

*The expectation is that you can attend ALL sessions. Trust me, you don’t want to miss one once you’ve started!


If you are interested in a Daring Way™ group later in the year, there will only be one more offered in 2016. Email me to have your name put on the list for the spring session.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and THANK YOU! As we begin the week of Christmas, I want to say a huge thank you to every one of you. Last Friday marked 5 years since I quit my teaching job and ventured out on my own as Coach on the Go. If I had to go back to that day 5 years ago, I would do it all over again! Each day I get to wake up and do work that I am incredibly passionate about and I feel so grateful.

Today I want to say thank you to those of you who:

  • Have come to a workshop
  • Bought my What Matters cards
  • Shared my work with friends and family
  • Booked me to do a workshop or speak at your workplace
  • Sent me an email to share the impact of my work in your life
  • Shared my Facebook messages, ads…etc.
  • Taken time to read my blogs
  • Asked me about my work
  • Sent me a text with a picture of your top 10 value cards

And so much more….


You will never know what it feels like to me when I know that YOU are there supporting me behind the scenes. Being an entrepreneur is awesome but it’s also challenging. It is the simple gestures above that help me to keep going when the road feels uphill. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! Having your support is something I never take for granted…I am truly grateful!


Thank you for a wonderful year, for your support and belief in me and my message. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and all the best in 2016!

What Matters Mondays – Dec 14, 2015

One of my absolute top values is BALANCE. Years ago, when I lived my life out of balance often (okay truthfully…all the time), it caught up with me. I was someone even I didn’t recognize. I did too much, I was tired, I was grouchy and I put all the wrong things at the top of my priority list. Thank God I was given a message to stop and reinvent my life based on my core values.

But life isn’t perfect and I can tell you today, if there is one value that is going to get swept under the carpet on occasion, it’s always balance. I say yes to too many things, I want bigger opportunities for myself and I believe I have a message to share with the world…and so I say YES too much sometimes. However, I now know what it feels like in my body when I’m saying yes too much. I feel an uneasiness in the pit of my stomach, I feel flustered, I’m not present with the people who deserve my attention and my kitchen table starts to look like a bomb went off near it!

As I ended the month of November I can tell you…I was there AGAIN! Unbalanced, flustered, tired, saying YES to too much! I started December with a week long vacation which helped me put life back into perspective and I said aloud, “In January, I am going to get back to that balanced feeling. 2016 is going to be a year of balance.” Easy to say right?

Well here is where the Universe/God (whatever you want to call that higher power) stepped in to help me. Earlier in the year, I had applied to speak at all kinds of conferences. The YES me was applying to all kinds of things; just wanting more opportunities to share my work with the world. A few of the conferences that I believed were very likely to approve my proposals were teachers’ conventions.

Well, I returned home from my vacation and within 48 hours I received two proposal rejections. Instantly my ego wanted to get involved…you must suck, you aren’t good enough, they don’t want you…etc.

But then the quiet voice said, “Be grateful. Here is the time you wanted. This is a gift not a rejection.”

And so I head into 2016 full of anticipation and excitement that I will find my true balance yet again. And I also trust that when the scales are tipping the wrong way, that I am not alone….the Universe has plans for me…I just need to listen!

Each morning for 8 days, this is the view I get to wake up to. I sit on the pool deck and think about how incredibly grateful I am to have the life I do. Gratitude is one of my top 10 values. To me gratitude means taking the time each and every day to think of all that I’m grateful for. But here’s the funny thing….I’m grateful for all the amazing things (like this view) as well as for all the hard, struggling moments in my life because it’s our whole story that makes us who we are. I cannot orphan the yucky, messy, hard parts and pretend they didn’t happen…because that’s only part of who I am.

Today I am grateful for it all! I’m grateful for beautiful places, for family, for inspiration, for friends who make me laugh until I cry, for sadness and heartache, for the moments that teach me lessons, for things that don’t work out as planned…I believe it’s all meant to be! All of those brutiful lessons and experiences make up who I am…I wouldn’t change any of them! I’m so grateful!

What are you grateful for today?
