About Us

The holistic vision-based approach I’m sharing with you here in Life Force Marketing is a distillation of what I’ve learned by working for over 35 years with myriad partners, teachers and coaches — many of them the best in their fields — and from thousands of life experiences in which I’ve practiced and applied what I learned.

This has included my participation in a leadership role in an array of projects and enterprises, both for-profit and non-profit, over a 35 year period.

The journey began with operating a cleaning and painting service in California with a single partner and included a part in starting two tiny dance organizations, each of which eventually sprouted into statewide forces in the Arts — one in California and one in Kentucky.
