Welcome!

MoxieQuest is the bravery and determination to pursue one’s own courageous journey. 

What's yours? Begin by asking yourself the following questions:

  • What's a life long dream that you've always wanted to do but haven't?
  • If you knew you couldn't fail, what would you do?
  • Even if you knew you'd fail, what's so compelling to you that you need to do it anyway?

MoxieQuest can be big (climbing a mountain) or small (getting out of bed in the morning). It just has to be something that is important to you. AND you may not even know what your's is yet! That's ok - we can find it together. If you are ready to dive in and get moving forward, email or give me a call. Don't let any more time pass you by - pursue your MoxieQuest today!

Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.

Purpose Deficit Disorder

I have a theory and I’ve named it Purpose Deficit Disorder. It’s based on anecdotal evidence and yet it is quite compelling.

After working as an executive coach for over 10 years, I find that many individuals are missing meaning and purpose in their lives. Many people have become successful in business and life and yet are often left with the feeling of – is this all there is? In addition, many have been on the working / life treadmill for so long that they have lost their own drive and passion. 

They no longer know what makes their own hearts sing. Thus, my hypothesis is that when individuals live their lives day-to-day without a self-identified purpose, they feel unfulfilled, lost and / or stuck.

Thankfully, many reach out for help and bring me in as their coach. I am honored to join them on their journeys back to themselves. I call this courageous adventure MoxieQuest.

Why MoxieQuest?

The definition I created for MoxieQuest is having the courage and determination to pursue one’s own courageous adventure. This can be an antidote for individuals who are suffering from a deficiency of purpose – or simply called a “purpose deficient.”

When we are deficient, we need a boost. 

The definition of Deficient: not having enough of a specified quality or ingredient.  Thesaurus: lack, incompleteness, insufficient, scarce, poor, underprovided, undersupplied, incomplete, wanting.  Antonym: abundant, plentiful, copious, rich, profuse, ample, lavish

When we have lost our way, we need to find a purpose.

The definition of Purpose: The reason for which something is done or created or for which something (or someone) exists.  Thesaurus: drive, determination, resolution, resolve, persistence, perseverance, tenacity, single-mindedness, commitment, devotion, dedication, reason, point, idea, rationale, principle, function, use

My definition of Purpose Deficient Disorder (PDD) is that we lack the reason for our own existence.  We have not found our own meaning, drive, determination, and devotion. Thus, we live our days without enthusiasm and with little motivation. We end up feeling stuck – often times full of anxiety, anger and/or signs of depression.

Antidote: MoxieQuest!

When we feel weak, we need a little courage.

The definition of Moxie: force of character, determination or nerve; the ability to be active; courage or determination

When we feel lost, we need to find the journey home.

The  definition of Quest:  a search or pursuit made in order to find or obtain something; an adventurous expedition undertaken by a knight/knights to secure or achieve something

Thus, MoxieQuest!

So, What is your MoxieQuest?

How can you begin your courageous adventure today?
