The other day I felt overwhelmed with gratitude for the life I have been fortunate enough to live. 2019 will be a “Legacy Year” for me. Let me explain why…
I have been supporting individuals and organizations in making their dreams come true for 45 years. In 2019, MMS will be officially 45 years old!
I started the organization, with the philosophy that people have their own answers inside; rather than giving them advice, suggestions, or good ideas, I started asking questions to extract their answers from the deepest part of their hearts and souls. Today, this method is known as coaching, and I feel proud to be “The Mother of Coaching,” one of the pioneers of this special type of interaction (and industry).
Next year I will be making one of my dreams come true. Since as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for the theatre, especially musical theatre. I worked at Williamstown Summer Theatre Festival, worked with Joseph Papp in the New York Shakespeare Festival, and had small parts in Soap Operas on TV. One day I came to the realization that even though I had talent, I didn’t have enough drive to starve for my art and a very deep part of me needed to give back in a tangible way. I left NYC in search of my purpose in life, promising myself that one day, “I would be back!” I had no idea what that would look like, but I wanted to return when I could both control my destiny and make a difference.
Now it is 45-years later, and I have made my mark in the coaching industry (MCC);
I have written 20 books, 2 bestsellers, I have been on Oprah twice, Today Show, obtained my Ph.D., become a proud mother (and will be a grandmother in 2019 as well), a terrific life parter, and sister-partner, family, friends, partners in our MMS business, leaders to make me very proud… and it is time to come full circle.
In 2019, I will produce a musical that I have co-written, composed, and for which I have also written the lyrics. The Workshop musical combines my passion for musical theatre with my purpose of supporting people in becoming their best selves and living their dreams. It is the first musical that uses coaching as the vehicle on stage to support the transformation of the characters (all real life stories from our, “INW”, Inner Negatiation Workshop). A First!
The World Premiere dates are: May 18, 19, 29, 30, 31, and June 1st, 2019!
It will be performed at Thailand Cultural Center in Bangkok. We will help you create the unforgettable trip of a lifetime if you choose to come. If you could stretch into the realm of possibility and consider coming to Bangkok for the world premiere of The Workshop, A Dress Rehearsal for Life, that will be the greatest present imaginable.
We will be creating travel packages with an agency to support friends coming from all over the world to see our production. If you have always longed to come to Thailand, but could never justify the journey, the time, or the cost, then this is your moment to make your dream come true along with mine.
