The Power of Three
How to achieve your goals by simply doing three things a day
People often say to me, "You are so lucky." What I tell them is that yes, it might appear I am lucky. Read more...What has in fact been going on is a purposeful and strategic plan of action. I share that I achieve my goals by doing a little bit each day to get to where I want to go. It is similar to saying you want to take a trip to the other side of the continent or world. Most of us can’t just say we want to do this and then, as if by magic, it happens. Most of us have to plan the trip – determining the timeframe in which it will take place, schedule the time off from work, save money, purchase travel books, etc. We often find ourselves doing something each day towards this goal. I have noticed, though, that when it comes to achieving our dreams and personal goals many of these skills – so natural in planning things such as vacations – don’t happen naturally. This book is the result of years of working in a style and with a system that I thought everyone used. It was only when giving presentations and speeches did I begin to see the impact these "tips" were having. Throughout my talks, I would offer these ideas as "tools" to be put in the listener’s "toolbox" so that they would have them readily accessible in the future. What always amazed me was that after my presentation was done, many leaders and managers would approach me saying, "I’m taking these ideas back to my business and having everyone do them... and oh, by the way, do you have this in writing so I could share it?" I would sheepishly answer that I did not - that it was simply what I did every day to achieve my goals whether in the political world, nonprofit arena or in my consulting business practice. Over the years, the requests came often enough for me to be prompted to write this book. In short, The Power of Three provides helpful ideas on where to start, how to do the ‘hard’ things, the best way to network, when to seize opportunities and how listening just might be the key to it all. Through reading and implementing these seemingly simple strategies, your goals and dreams, both personal and professional, will be attained.

“Inspiring, Relatable, and Practical: Like most people, I have goals that I dream of achieving. Even though I have carried many of them with me for years, they have, for the most part, always seemed out of reach. But thanks to "The Power of Three" I have made more progress on my goals than ever before. "The Power of Three" provided me with the concrete steps and sage advice needed to get me on the right path towards realizing my dreams. Lisa does a great job of balancing experience, wisdom, and reflection to provide the tools for success. This book was a quick and enjoyable way to make a huge difference in my life. Thank you, Lisa!”
“Excellent Read!: Lisa’s new book is full of tips and tricks that will make a difference in your life. Even something as small as smiling to a stranger can have a huge impact! So much of her advice is common sense, but not something that I thought of daily, and never all in one place. The Power of Three is a quick and easy way to remind yourself to dream big, and develop a path to get there.”
“The Perfect Pick-Me-Up!: The “Power of Three” gave me the road map I needed to not only lead me to my goals, but also to help me become a better person, especially to those around me. Lisa’s lessons are simple but far-reaching; she demonstrates how being your most authentic self and always following up, for example, inevitably lead to a positive outcome. The “Power of Three” was the perfect pick-me-up I needed. Thank you, Lisa!”
“Thank you Lisa for giving such sage advice in such a concise and easy to read and understand manner. I was in the process of wanting to learn a new skill, something I could do in my "spare" time, and with Lisa's advice, I've moved from vision to action and am starting my learning journey NOW.”

“Lisa has pulled a critical tactic right from the pages of a Comedy 101 textbook -- humorous idioms are funnier in threes. And so are many life lessons. She beautifully provides us with a road map to making amazing things happen in our lives. It takes a catalyst to spur action, and I believe this book serves as that element, igniting the passion for not only success but happiness. It’s never too late to learn from Lisa's simple words of wisdom.”
“Where has this book been all my life? Lisa has taken many things we know and some we don’t and put them in an easy to read, easy to remember, easy to implement practice. A perfect gift to myself and others. Thank you, Lisa!”
“I enjoyed the book…great advice; practical, easily applicable to different situations and achievable. I intend to be more purposeful in harnessing the “power of three” for myself! In fact, after reading the book and intentionally doing three things each day, I have seen how powerful this practice is in real-life situations. So glad you shared your wisdom!”
“The Power of Three is excellent! I kept highlighting key points that were significant. I like the statement by Marianne Williamson that we are more powerful beyond measure. I think the book hits home to anyone in a leadership role needing that extra push. Tenacity is important because one must be a mover and shaker to achieve success. Excellent book- Lisa!”
