How to Plan When You're Not a Planner? You Start with YOUR DREAMS! 

You've heard everyone talking about their 2017 goals, but you feel resistant about setting your own.  

For some reason, the actual writing of your goals makes you second guess yourself.  

Are my goals too ambitious?
Are they not big enough?  
Do they represent what I really want?   
What if I change my mind? 

The decisions that need to be made can make your head spin!

But . . . an aligned goal-setting process doesn't feel this way.
It can feel scary (in a good way), but more than anything, it feels exciting!

Join me as I walk you through a simple 5 step goal-setting process that will
put you on the fast track to taking aligned action every day so that you can start making progress right away!



Debi Metcalfe, Stolen Horse International

Debi Metcalfe has become one of the most recognized names in the horse industry, and for a good reason. Her accomplishments and the extensiveness of her influence are impressive. Because there was no help for her when her horse Idaho was stolen in 1997, Metcalfe started Stolen Horse International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding individuals and their families who have missing horses and equipment 13 years ago. The organization has grown and is now the lost and found for all things missing in the horse industry. Her presentations appeal to horse owners everywhere who want to learn how a horse can disappear, (theft, disasters, civil matters, runaways) and how to protect, prevent and recover them when the worst happens. Drawing from her 16 years of experience of working with actual victims, she has a fresh, authentic voice that will inspire you while providing an education you never anticipated. Her message is powerful, unlike any other and inspirational. She has appeared on television and various radio programs, in newspaper and magazine articles, and addressed civic groups. She is author to the book, “Horse Theft, Been There—Done That”, which has sold out of the first printing. Through the efforts of Metcalfe and the NetPosse volunteer network, not only have many horses and their owners have been reunited, but many more missing horse situations have been prevented.

Most people never think about having to prove ownership of any property-it is theirs, right? But if it is lost, missing, or, worse yet, stolen, and you have to prove to law enforcement or a court that it is, in fact, yours-how do you go about doing that? Just pointing your finger and saying 'that's mine, give it back' won't work-especially when the other party is there with what appears to be a bill of sale that says it is his. Learn what you need to do, steps to take, and what records to keep to protect yourself.
