For nearly 35 years, Sandy has been working with energetic leaders from Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations alike. She has run teams as well as coached and consulted throughout her career. Her “aha” moment around people’s professional success, vitality and overall health came when she realized that the people who were most effective were not those who worked the hardest or ran the fastest professionally. It was those who took the time to connect inside, reflect on their values and purpose, be vulnerable around new awareness and learning, and find gratitude every day. And science only reinforces these benefits.
Sandy and Julie began dreaming of Six Minutes Daily on 11/11/11. Like 3+2+1, the apps simple formula for creating vitality, 1+1+1+1+1+1 equals 6. In numerology, the number six is connected with balance, responsibility and love. It is the most harmonious of the single digit numbers, representing the mother and the teacher in us all. The six pointed star has been known through history as the coming together of heaven and earth.
