About Breaking Through Consulting: Listening to a whisper, following a prompting, fulfilling a purpose...

Breaking Through Consulting is the result of a whisper, a response to a prompting to find and live out my own purpose, my own breakthrough.

A clear purpose compels, engages and moves people into action. If a purpose is placed at the core of who we are and what we do, it has the power to move us from from crisis, to sustainability, to contributing back.

So in every aspect of life – friends and family, personal growth, finances, work, etc. – I believe our purpose is what fuels and helps us move forward, improve and achieve success for us and for others.  

I think this also holds true for organizations. No matter where they stand, they are trying to move from point A to B, from here to there, from helping a few to making a greater impact. And their is no better way than to do so by activating their purpose.
