I hear you

Hi there. I hear you, and I understand. I’ve been in similar shoes before. 

You’ve cast your experience so far and…

You’re passionate about your goals and the life you lead but feel stuck at times to expand your mind.

It’s hard to find the calmness within life’s chaos to maintain steady confidence, and to gather and organize all of your thoughts, but you know you have it in you.

Your heart is full when in nature.. You feel your body take the deepest breaths when you journey across a trail or feel the water as you wade through it.

You wade through life while being surrounded by walls at work or home. Growth is around the corner! Do you need a little help with the steps to get yourself there? 

bottom line

you’re ready for something different

I get it. You’re no stranger to challenges or success. You simply lose your confidence or inspiration sometimes.

You still set lofty expectations to stretch yourself and those who you support or lead. Why do you do it?

You do it, because you believe, and you know even small steps can amount to big growth.

sound familiar?

gain clarity

“If only I knew what would bring the clarity I need. I spend valuable time thinking about this. Can I really find it in nature?”   …Does this sound familiar?

So much is happening in nature, we come from nature. It’s beautiful. We live our lives in cycles much like the changing season. The seasons of life. Avoiding nature hurts us.

Nature experienced or witnessed through Fly Fishing brings connection to the air, the lands, and the flowing waters that nourish and bring life to the world around us.

Whether you’re actually fishing or not, immersing ourselves to cast our experience in nature isn’t actually an escape from life, but a deeper immersion into it.

It can be harnessed to grow internal strength, leadership, confidence, and connections.

Personal and professional growth doesn’t have to be boring. We are in a new time, and we’re just getting started. We’ve let go of the conventional “Googled” ideology to transform into something truly unique, progressive, and positive.

We are getting to the most amazing part of our lives. We all have room to grow!

There are no easy paths or quick fixes, but that’s okay. It’s time to cast your experience and discover nothing less than extraordinary development through unconventional ideas that work.

Invest in yourself to experience inspiration, impact, and income in an environment you help create that is filled with connection, kindness, and inclusion. 

Cast yourself into leading a fuller life. Cast your skills to lead your world. 

The possibilities, and potential are endless.

I was fortunate…

I was fortunate enough to have friends recommend Audrey for casting lessons when I was just beginning to learn how to fly fish.

Flash forward a few years later and she has me perfecting my “double-haul” for an upcoming trip to Cuba.

I continually use her for a casting tune-up to evaluate any bad habits I’ve picked up.

Audrey has the perfect balance of patience and teaching skills to have you casting better in no time.
