How to Transition into

a meaningful career

and work-life balance

Maybe you are a College/University

undergraduate or graduate student

approaching graduation day?


Maybe you are in a junior or mid-career position,

and planning a professional career change?

Mentoring2Success is the heart-focused social entrepreneurship project that I started as a way to help high-achieving multitalented individuals around the world to make one of the most important transitions in their life -- from a College/University degree, or a junior or mid-career position, into their next professional opportunity. 

But to do so without losing sight of who you are--that's the goal, isn't it? 

I help smart people to narrativize their own story -- in writing and in interviews -- and how to apply to innovative programs, fellowships, internships, or professional employment. 

The mission of M2S is to help individuals to draw upon their education and self-knowledge to transition successfully into a meaningful career and work-life balance.

Schedule your "Mind Mapping Makeover (MMM)" (2-3 hour session) today and we will map your skills, talents, life path and career goals. With a visual representation, we can customize a plan to put your best self forward at this key moment in your life & career. (Click on the link MMM above to read the description about the process).

Mind-Mapping Makeover

 Map of Your Path to Your Dream Career

A few years ago, I developed the Mind-Mapping Makeover (MMM), a simple but powerful technique that has become a favorite among my clients, students, friends, and family. Because many of us are visual learners and we value both knowing and seeing how our skills and experiences line up with our dream goal, it puts the power in our hands. Through the MMM process, you'll create a Mind-Map of your skill sets and positive life experiences, and see how to adjust your path direction to achieve your next goal.  

What is it?  We create a one-page Mind-Map that you take with you -- a Road Map that navigates you toward your next goal. Having a plan is one of the keys to a happier, healthier career. I mentor you through the dynamic process of how to create your own Mind-Map. 

When I have a new project and wonder how to accomplish it, I use the MMM. It's worked for my students, clients, friends and family.

Schedule a session today for yourself, or gift a session to a loved one.


The Tao of Finding Balance

Embracing Life’s Challenges

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With our mentoring sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you. After several sessions, you will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise.


Mentoring is more than an exchange of questions and answers. It is a process based on appealing to the wisdom in our hearts and deeper lessons from our life experiences. Wisdom comes in many forms, and in many persons, and I am open and listening to you to hear and learn from your wisdom.   


I feel incredibly grateful to have been mentored by renowned Tibetan masters for over twenty-five years. Having learned from their lifestyle and career choices, their ancient wisdom and gentle kindness, I can share these with you, if you would like.


As an ethnomusicologist, having focused my PhD studies on Machik Labdrön's Chöd tradition of "going to places that scare you," I have studied how music and health work together.  I can create music playlists for you based on your life rhythm to keep you energized and relaxed throughout the day!  Music is one of the most powerful tools for achieving more mindfulness throughout a task, whether working out in the gym or planning a week of meetings.

Jeff's "Mind-Mapping Makeover" exercise was excellent in building a much stronger understanding of

what is at the core of my professional goals. My Mind-Map is an incredibly useful tool that I still revisit

even months after the initial activity was completed!
