MY Vision

Helping Individuals Live Their Best Lives

I have had the nickname of Katee Bar the Door throughout my life. When I finally figured out what it was from, I liked it as a company name. James Whitcomb Riley’s poem When Lide Married Him, 1894 was about a new couple who had eloped and may have had a few folks who did not support their union. Katee had to bar the door to make sure they were prepared for possible trouble.

That’s what I do for companies. Bar the door and prepare leaders and teams for anything they may face.
