Go ahead. Just Go!

It takes real work to communicate your science story well. But after taking just one step you will experience confidence and see new opportunities in your professional life.

Whether you would like to write better articles or start your own consultancy, your change of state starts with one bold step adding a little momentum.

Take one powerful scary step. Change your life.

Don’t quit your dream.

It’s not frivolous.
It’s not too fancy.
It’s not for someone else to do.
It’s your dream.

If you don’t DO something — it’s wishful thinking.
Is your calling to do wishful thinking?

I didn’t think so.

Do you have an idea? Thoughts about that one thing, that if it happened, your science career, your enjoyment, your life would be energized?

Your thing — your crazy idea — the thing you think about and say, “Nah, that’s never happening!” is calling you. It’s actually your creative side trying to get a word in edgewise. If you give it a voice, even just a little acknowledgement in your day-to-day work you can transform your career. It’s true. I promise.

Science and art are not that far apart. 

Good scientific work is inherently creative. Getting funding takes cohesive storytelling about your science. We all know watching science unfold can be magical.

Until it’s not.

Do you ever think of ways to use your science results to start a business then shut that thinking down because you have tenure? Sure. Why rock the boat?

Do you work in a fairly uninspired lab of grey cubicles? Do you wonder if anyone really uses your results? Do they even know about them? Surely folks who care read the journals? Right?

Do you go to conferences and listen to talks of influential researchers in your field and stand in line to meet them after the session? Then they run out of time. Or worse, you meet them and can’t spit out the words to a question you’ve wanted to ask in-person since last year? And they rush off…

Missed opportunities abound.

Let’s catch some!

Let’s make your career serve your needs.

Not the other way around.


In this exclusive opportunity, we’ll work through a process to focus your vision and bolster your professional authority empowering you to act with confidence and intention.

You are an expert in your field and you have the credentials to prove it. And guess what? Your academic degrees impose a responsibility upon you to share your gifts and knowledge as a member of “The Academy.”

That’s right. You are obliged to share your science story.

(And if you don’t, who will?)

Let me help.

The Butt-kickin’ No Nonsense Acceleration Sessions are for researchers serious about making changes in their professional lives so they can align who they truly are with what they do in their day-to-day work.

Most times the Butt-Kickin’ starts with telling yourself your own story and comparing this personal story to the public one you share with the world.

Working through this re-alignment with someone like me is really No-nonsense. You will be held accountable. It might be scary.

You also might re-emerge energized and ready to take on new opportunities. (Like that idea you’ve had but keep dismissing as frivolous drivel…)

Is this program for you?

Do you have the time and energy to do the work to recognize & encourage your talent and assets?

Do you have support and a deep desire to develop innovative and exciting new opportunities for your career?

Do you have enough existing science work – however disjointed – to pull together, focus on and use to define your very own research brand?

Do you want to build self-confidence, self-efficacy, and develop a multi-faceted strong reputation?

Do you do what you say you’re going to do? (Or do you need some accountability there?)

Do you have time to do the real work?

Going up for tenure? Two big grantwriting sessions coming up? Getting engaged? Married? Having twins?

The timing might not be quite right...
(You might want to check out the WTF Am I Doing?! Sessions to get started.)
