Here is the "Real" Bio...
Hi! I am Dominique. I am a high achiever who paid a high price for ignoring his blind spots. I've been fired. I've been through bankruptcy. I've been estranged from my children. Burnout led me to the ER. I've felt lost and lonely.
There was a time when I would drive in the fast lane. But then, eventually, after a few crashes and the nudges of good friends, I took some unexpected turns and embarked on a journey of my own. A journey from the head to the heart. A voyage from reactivity to creativity. I was a know-it-all, and I became a learner. And from wanting to be right, I became a seeker. Once my worst enemy, I became my best friend. Like you, I work to grow as a conscious leader each day.
It helped greatly when someone held a mirror before my eyes in a compassionate manner. My joy is now to turn the mirror onto you to help you raise your game, embrace your true purpose, and honor your values.
When I am not engaged in a mindful conversation with a leader like you, the odds are that I am either hiking in the desert, meditating at dawn, playing the guitar, or mentoring the youth, which I love.
To drop the mask and show up as my authentic self, one evening, as I was journaling, I burned the midnight oil and kept writing: Inspire Forward, The speed of your joy, Downtown in my Speedo bathing suit (self-deprecating humor is medicine).
I am grateful for the winks, the whispers, and the kind words of encouragement of my guides and mentors.
And special thanks to you, dear Ted.
With you, we Dare To Reach.
And how about you?
Maybe the time has come for you to dive and grow wider wings...
Curious about what's next?
Thank you, Dominique,
for helping others
open up paths forward.
Your work is precious.
