Personal and professional growth is for the learner in us all

When we experience a time of dissatisfaction in our lives we are at a crossroads:  “Do I move forward, or, stay in place (think jogging in place because it still takes energy to not move forward!).  Like all journeys, learning kicks in and we choose resources that resonate with our present thoughts, ideas, feelings. You might be experiencing this right now, and that perspective brought you here...

We created The Hippo Campus for you, the shifting and growing individual. Through my video series; Hippodrome TV, my blogs (writing is still where my heart lies strongest) and podcasts, connect in to triangulate information and see what resonates with you and what you want for yourself.  

There are a lot of ways to get information today, convert it into knowledge and create a destiny to take us forward.  The Hippo Campus is your personal growth GPS, ready to take you forward. I can’t promise you change, that’s for you to decide. I can promise that what lies ahead is thought provoking.

Wherever you are on your journey, self-actualization, personal and professional growth is for the learner in us all.

Through these videos, I’m here to serve your desire to want more for yourself even in just the smallest of bites.
