Lead from the Heart
Outer Success Through Inner Peace
I help women who are hard-wired to want more, get the life they want and love the life they have.
“Only when the psyche is transformed from an instrument of chaos to an instrument of love are our circumstances transformed from pain to peace. Our lives can only change when we change.”
– Marianne Williamson

There are many reasons why we do the things we do. Perhaps we’re in a job that we don’t actually feel passionate about, but we excel at and are validated day-in, day-out. This validation fuels our perception of ourselves. We feel needed, important; perhaps, even loved because of the things that we do. But, the question is: are we making decisions from a place of our insecurities or are we motivated from a place of passion and inspiration?read more

Hi I'm Giovanna
I was once stuck; 70lbs overweight, unhealthy, depressed and anxious (yes you can be both at the same time). On the outside I appeared to have it all to others. People saw me as intelligent, successful and strong; a natural leader. Inside however I was slowly dying. I struggled with high levels of self doubt, self criticism and fear. I used all kinds of distractions not to admit how unhappy I was; like over working, eating or just plain checking out whenever I got the chance. I was not connected to my Higher Self, my core presence or even my sensuality as a woman; I felt less than powerful and I was getting exhausted trying to keep up the facade. Then I discovered the work of A Course in Miracles and began to incorporate it with other training and mindfulness practices I had... and everything began to change. I learned that to be an effective leader in life and business I needed to be connected to my heart more and in my head less. I learned to do the inside work for the outside results.
