Does your life carry you where it may?

Why is life so hard? Why do these things always happen to me? Why can't I ever get what I want? How did I end up here? We all ask ourselves these questions. Life happens, it's just what it does. It keeps moving whether you are on board or not.

We all have the choice to create the waves of our lives with intent, or to let the drift carry us where it may, bruised, battered and lost. So why not choose deliberate direction?

Why not shift the drift?

Shifting the Drift, LLC is an umbrella organization formed with the vision of always creating lives and work of intention, the waves of which I hope will carry ripples further than I could ever imagine. All of my personal work will be done as part of this organization, including strategic Internet consulting, writing, training & education and speaking events. Feel free to contact me here.
