You can't choose what happens to you, but you can choose how you respond.

The good news is that most people are unaware of the ONE approach to guide them to respond and handle the things that happen to them in life. I had to learn it the hard way.

Not knowing what to do when faced with a trifecta of personal losses, I learned that our clearest choices come not from doing but from listening. Not only did I get clarity and direction, but I found this approach to handling life's challenges also brought more calm to all aspects of my life on a daily basis.

I share this simple, repeatable approach I learned in my book The Serenity Mindset.

For ongoing encouragement, I share a very brief real-life tip each Monday morning in my post called Simple. Sweet. Serenity. Follow us on social for some serenity surprises!

Hi, I'm Nancy!

I help people learn how to handle everyday challenges in life so they ultimately see them as "growth opportunities" instead of "problems."My simple and effective techniques have inspired and empowered hundreds of women (and some men) to live their lives with intention instead of on autopilot, and find more time for what makes them truly happy.

My experiences from a 30-year corporate America leadership tenure combined with my personal tragedies journey and my genuine concern for people make me a heartfelt storyteller whose unique perspective about what matters in life is really resonating with audiences internationally.
