Bankable, Purposeful Business Plans.  

The first business plan Pat ever wrote was selected as a bank’s model business plan; since then she has taught more than a dozen business planning classes for the Small Business Administration to rave reviews.

Pat’s proprietary Purposeful Business Plan model integrates solid business methods with powerful spiritual and psychological practices to tap your deepest wisdom and ensure that your plan will lead to success based on your vision and values.

Purposeful business plans benefit non-profit as well as profit-making companies.

Pat expertly coached me to develop a clear message about my new business and to deliver it with ease. Before I worked with Pat I was feeling stuck and overwhelmed and hated public speaking.  Now I love it; business doubled after that within six months!   Jenny Kassan, author, Raise Capital on Your Own Terms: how to fund your business without selling your soul; Co-founder,  Sustainable Economies Law Center and Cutting Edge Capital

You gave our members new confidence and ideas for business plans. Thanks for your depth of knowledge and generosity in sharing it. Maria Sariego, Founder, Work & Soul Chair, Spiritual Coaches Network

Your DVD is one of our most popular programs!  Connie Voos, Litigation Attorney, Continuing Education of the Bar, State of California

How to Have More Meaning and Joy in Any Job.  Discover why meaning and joy matter so much to your health and effectiveness. Tap the wisdom of your own tradition, your creativity, and other traditions to create more integrity, purpose and joy.

Pat Sullivan is a captivating speaker who relates to business and professional people with sensitivity and finesse. We have been thoroughly pleased by her three presentations. James M. Silva, Director of Adult Formation, Catholic Communities of Pleasanton, CA.

Bottom Line: Integrity. Integrity includes honesty, ethics, being whole, being true to self, integrating values and actions, and being in harmony with others. Learn how to deal gracefully and compassionately with difficult ethical challenges anywhere, any time.

Pat Sullivan gives a more meaningful context for the mundane tasks that each of us does. I have seen her speak to a group of overly busy lawyers and watched her bring out quickly their thoughtfulness and purpose.  J. Kim Wright, founder, Cutting Edge Law

Make Me an Instrument of Peace through Work.  Co-taught with John Sullivan.  Discover the deeper purpose in your work; learn how to create a sanctuary at work that helps you build peace for yourself and others.

Pat and John’s class has been life-changing. It took me to the place where peace needs to begin within myself, then ripple outward. Sometimes, plans and goals and steps are necessary — but I’m also learning to allow spirit to guide me.  Cynthia, class participant
