About Teresa


My mission is to help my clients slow down and stop spinning their wheels, wasting their time being busy but never getting anything important done. I help my clients recognize their own strengths and skills so they can develop a personalized plan to do what matters enabling them to succeed in their lives, personally and professionally.


Getting real with myself made it clear to me that I needed to begin to take stock of my strengths and my challenges. I was introduced to a great tool called the Enneagram – a Personality Style Assessment that helped me gain great insight into the way I think, feel and take action. This tool helped me begin to step out of the crazy productivity cycle and into a healthier way of living life and doing things that really mattered. Once that was aligned I was able to put my vision into a great productivity system the 12 Week Year™ and create a plan that moves my business forward and helps me balance my personal life as well. Now I serve my clients and community by helping them do the same!

Now I’m passionate about helping business leaders and entrepreneurs to assess their habits and execute a Personalized Program for doing more of what matters. I am trained to use tools such as the Enneagram, 12 Week Year and Life Maps, to serve my clients through one-on-one coaching, webinars, and training to understand their unique talents, values and life mission and become productivity leaders and entrepreneurs that do what matters.

It is not enough to know. There is a big difference between knowing, and doing. The barrier standing between you and the life you are capable of living is a lack of consistent execution. Effective execution will set you free. It is THE  path to accomplish the things you desire.

The 12 Week Year is a system designed to help you perform at your best each and every day through more effective execution. Whether you are trying to increase your income, start a business, lose weight or improve a relationship, the 12 Week Year will show you how to take consistent action. With the 12 Week Year you’ll find yourself accomplishing more in 12 weeks than most do in 12 months!

Stop chasing new ideas and discover the secret of truly accomplishing your goals and dreams.


I had tried it all – every book, software and app to help me be more productive. I’ll admit it. I was addicted to productivity. I felt if I could just find the right system, I’d be so much more productive. After years on this crazy cycle I finally hit a wall and had to make a change.  My patterns of destructive behavior were costing me in all areas of my life. I was losing passion for my work, my relationships were falling apart and I never seemed to have any time for my family.

It hit me like a bolt of lightning. I had to choose something different! My first step to being more productive was to really STOP worrying about getting everything done and figure out why I had these destructive patterns of behavior as a leader.


I bring over 30 years of experience to coaching.  I have been a Solopreneur and a Leader in both business and ministry giving me a wide range of experience leading teams, managing multiple projects and juggling systems at the same time. The coaching community is a great group and I am a proud member of CCNI and the International Coaching Federation. I am on track to complete my coaching certification with both PCCI and the ICF by the end of this year. Currently, I serve as an Ambassador for our local 2017 CEO Entrepreneur program for High School Seniors.  My Certification as a Spiritual Director and Enneagram MOS Trainer serves me well as I work with my clients personally and professionally  to help them reboot their lives and reignite their businesses.

As a Trainer and Coach with the 12 Week Year™ my mission is helping business leaders and entrepreneurs to assess both their strengths and challenges and learn to execute an Individualized Productivity System (IPS) for doing more of what matters.  My training and certification in the 12 Week Year™ the MOS Enneagram® Personality Profile and OneLife Maps™ allows us to partner together as client and coach to create your own IPS. Having these things in place you can get back to doing what matters with a whole new level of productivity. I serve my clients through one-on-one coaching,  group coaching, online training and One Day on sight presentations.

“I like working with Teresa as a coach because she is confident and clear in her communication. She is a great listener and allows me the space I need to process through things. However, she also asks great questions that make me think more deeply, challenge my perspective, and get to the core of an issue. She helps me to clarify my thoughts and put substantial action in place that will bring me closer to my goals”.

On a Personal Note

I have been married to my husband Dale for 34 years and we live on a 3rd generation family grain farm in Central Illinois.  We have two adult children, one dog and one grand-dog.  When I’m not working with clients, I enjoy cooking, gardening, a great cup of coffee with a friend and traveling as much as possible!  Now that I am living and leading my passion, the magic and joy has returned to my life.

I want you to feel the joy too. I’m here to help you because, after all, you’re worth it and you deserve success. Having the tools to get unstuck, will most assuredly move you forward successfully in your life and in your business!
