I cannot wait for you to hear from my new friend, Coach Dar.


I met her when we were both speaking at an amazing event recently and within minutes I knew we were on the same page. I am so inspired and impressed with her story, her work, and her new book, and I was so happy to bring her on the show so you can hear from her as well.

As a Board Certified Occupational Therapist, CEO & Founder of Performance Meets Purpose Consulting, author, and keynote speaker, Coach Dar is passionate about helping people break through adversity to achieve greatness. Recently named Senior Fellow of PathNorth—an organization of world leaders and CEOs of Fortune 100 companies—her powerful message continues to reach a global audience.

An inspirational woman with the drive to give back, Coach Dar was awarded the Most Inspiring Woman of 2017 by the WNBA, recognized in the 2018 VoyagerPhoenix series titled Trailblazers: Rewriting The Narrative, and is a founding member of WISH (Women in Service and Hope) for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Phoenix. Coach Dar is also a United States Ambassador for the Global Pay It Forward Day Initiative, driven by the belief that #RaisingTheBar includes acts of kindness that leave every person and every place we encounter better than when we found them.

In this episode, Coach Dar teaches how to find a vision that will fuel you through a bounceback, key principles to bouncing back, and what your greatness is really about.

“When we hit adversity, we tend to forget all the things that are good in us.”
