Want to Level up? Hire a CXO

Sometimes when I talk about what I do for a living, I am not as clear as I should be.In 2018, I tried on a lot of hats. Some were good fits and others weren’t. The experimentation was necessary, but I can see how confusing it would be if you were watching my growth...

Take the Fear out of Hiring – Using Purpose as a Tool

Sometimes I help businesses hire people.  I am not a recruiter and I don’t focus on resumes or candidate when I start my work. I focus on needs of the organization, building a preliminary playbook for the role and an onboarding plan including a 90- day review.  That’s...

I Stopped Chasing Money

In 2018 I stopped chasing money. I remember when I started chasing it. I used to have a career that paid for everything I could ever want or need. When I quit my job and started my own coaching and consulting business I was truly happy. It meant choosing whom I worked...

No Coincidences

I recently lost my job, which is never a good thing in general, and even more so when you have one kid in college and the other one finishing high school.  I have always believed that everything happens for a reason, but it’s at these moments when that belief is...

Accepting Vs. Willing

As I think about this in my life no time has been wasted when I am doing what I love to do and that is when we see the most success in individuals. As you begin to accept what is happening and stop willing you will find yourself running into challenges that are not as hard as they used to be. Accepting vs. Willing is key.

Causes and Consequences

If you don’t want it in the paper, then don’t do it. If you don’t want to be quoted, if you don’t want it repeated, then don’t say it. And we might also add, if you don’t want it on your conscience, don’t do it. If you don’t want it in your life at all, then don’t do it.

Lisa Sears is a specialist who listens and prepares with ​thorough professionalism. Her insight and direction were​ exactly what I needed to further drive the success of my organization.

Timothy Martin

As a 10 year agent/owner I had never worked with a coach prior to connecting with Lisa. Working with her has been incredibly beneficial for me both personally and professionally. Lisa has helped me create better focus and executable action plans, all while keeping an eye on the end goal and long term goals for 5+ years down the road. Working with Lisa has given me the space and thought process necessary to work on my business (and be strategic) instead of in my business. Lori Mullen

Agent, State Farm

I attended a workshop that Lisa and Colleen hosted at the WISE Women’s Business Center in Syracuse, NY last year. The information they presented on Mastering Mind Chatter was helpful and fun. I’ve since been following them on the Brass Rings page and in their Positive Psychology Daily Dose group and they always have practical advice to share. If you are a coach looking for advice, support, and/or inspiration Brass Rings is perfect for you. Laura Thorne

[Working with Lisa] has helped me so much this year already! I have a better understanding of myself, and more importantly acceptance of me. It permeates through so many layers and relationships of my life and I’m just so caught up in the beauty and honesty​ of it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Anonymous
