hey there!


A Coach, Blogger, and Mother with
big dreams! 

Very into chai tea latte's, sherpa throws and carving out a life you don't have to pretend to like. Avoiding small talk since....well, forever. 

I didn’t always have this business, the clients, the courses, or the confidence. . .

In fact, more than two decades ago you would’ve found me wearing the most uncomfortable business suits, pantyhose, and 3 inch heel shoes that have forever changed the arch of my feet. No joke!

I wanted to believe I landed my dream job, but there was a nagging voice inside telling me I was meant for more.

I probably should have known that the introverted, empathetic girl, who preferred a small group of intimate friendships, where she listened more than she talked, would do something where she could really connect with people and help them.  Except, at the time, she had never heard of life coaching. Funny, what comes our way.

in retrospect

Want to know what lights me up? I’m fascinated with what makes people tick. Helping people harness the power to take control of their lives. Busting the myth of balance. Shining a light on our truths and strengths so we can all find our way to that place that always feels just out of reach. 

I believe that change happens where the woo meets the work. If you’re new around here, you’ll see there’s science that backs this up. I can’t wait to show you exactly what I mean…

Right  Now 

I’m probably sipping a chai tea latte or a lemon-drop martini and dreaming of ways we can all get from where we are to where we want to be.

Friends... my 100th time?



A few of the things I answer to:

My girls are all grown up now, Without a doubt, this is the title I’m most proud of.


When people think my coaching business is a hobby, I tell them, people invest in coaching because it changes their lives - and that change is no hobby - it’s dedication to personal growth.



My niece, my first mentee and concert buddy.

Been blogging for almost a decade now and I'm a contributing author in two Best Selling ADHD books.




Only “Car” to my closest family and friends - dubbed by my big sis' when we were kids. This nickname is reserved for those who have known me for decades.

It’s weird when Marty calls me by my name. I’m just sweetie to him.

My Favorite Things

my guilty pleasure

Live it.   learn it.   coach it.

That, my friend, is how expertise is born. 

From ADHD, to parenting, to entrepreneurship, to a can-do mindset, that is exactly what I’ve done. If it weren’t for my daughter's ADHD diagnosis I never would have become a coach. 

She is my “why” for everything I do in my business. Every time I’m pushed outside my comfort zone, I remember that there is someone like my daughter or parents like me who need support. I wish I would have had “the me now” all those years ago. 

I know so many entrepreneurs are also living with ADHD. I understand what it feels like to be the Ringmaster of your business, doing it all, from coaching, to marketing, to the back office that often gets put on the backburner. 

Yes, I have tons of tools and strategies to share with you. 

But, the one thing I know for certain is that none of those matter if you don’t believe in yourself. Which is why mindset coaching is the cornerstone of all my coaching no matter if you have ADHD or not, are a parent, or an entrepreneur.

"Carlene has helped me immensely. Without her, I could not have identified or carried out the steps required to start my own business. But more than that, she has been my biggest cheerleader and built my confidence."
