Let’s Get Real

As a twenty-year Naval Officer, I worked in some offbeat places doing some pretty unusual things, with some very interesting leaders. And almost 90% of them were men.

To lead with confidence and authority, women need mentors and models who show them how to take charge and “lead like a woman,” instead of like a man or a girl.

That’s where I come in.

I help women develop executive leadership skills that bring out the best in them – so they can take charge of their career and move ahead faster.

I want to THANK YOU for all you do, say, and write! Over the years I have been uplifted by your inspiring words and especially, on occasion when I want to give up, I will recall some of your stories and power up! You are the best of the best Ann!Mary Ablao

What You’ll Get From Me

Encouragement more than anything.

A grown-up model to follow. And hope for a bigger, bolder future.

I write, blog, speak, train, facilitate, coach, and podcast about issues that help women achieve their highest potential in life, love, and business.

Growing up, stepping up, and living up to the life they were given. Tess

It’s about being extraordinary in the ordinary moments.

Oh, and occasionally I share a few things about my life here in sunny San Diego, where I drink green smoothies (go kale!), play really bad tennis, travel as much as possible, hang with my superhero gal-pals, and live with The Test Pilot, The Teenager, and the sweetest Westie on the planet, whose name is Tess.
