  • How am I ever going to get through this?
  • How can I move on when I feel stuck?
  • How could I possibly thrive when the person I miss the most isn’t here anymore?
This personal and revealing book will show you how to answer these questions, and more, to empower you to find the beauty in life as you build your resilience in the face of loss and struggle.
When death takes a loved one from us,
we step onto one of three paths:


The first:
we stumble through our struggle with grief and with time and just enough support, we survive.

The second:
we remain stuck in the chasm of grief, having a very difficult time believing that we will ever feel better, smile, or be happy again. For some, the grief can last the rest of their life.

Despite having access to counselors, support groups, friends and family, we tend to manage gravity of the grief alone and often see no path forward. We don’t know how leverage our own strengths to find a pathway to the weightlessness of resilience. But why do we have to just survive and let death take our life too? Why not thrive and find out our true purpose for living our lives?

The third:
we walk the path of empowerment that guides us through our grief, where we live a life of gratitude for what is, and thrive intentionally with resilience. “A Sherpa Named Zoi” empowers you to work through your struggles and thrive, to rise above the noise and see the beauty in life again.


This book guides you on:
  • How to answer the questions we all ask after the death of a loved one – one at a time.
  • How to frame your mindset to stop negative self-narratives and make way for forgiveness and gratitude.
  • How to function with purpose on a level that is equal to or better than before your loss.
  • How to form the core values that bring energy and direction to your life.
  • How to surpass existing in survival mode and live with purpose and intent.

Follow the advice in this book and the weightlessness of resilience will be revealed. You will begin to thrive with intention in the honor of the person that you miss the most.

What’s stopping you from unlocking the resilience you have inside of you already today?

about the book

Imagine if you could be empowered by your struggles to truly live with purpose and intention. 

Overcome adversity and build the resilience leader in you.


Struggle is inevitable. And, inside of any struggle we face lies the opportunity to navigate our way through it and thrive because of it. We ask questions that must be answered in order for us to move forward to the other side of that struggle. We cannot look outside of ourselves for the answers. We have to look inside.

When we are empowered to answer these questions, we build the toolset that helps us not just survive the struggle, but to thrive when we are in it. By a process I call MAPS, you too can address struggle in all aspects of your life including the workplace and at home. This is the process I use daily, and it has helped me navigate some of the most difficult struggles I've faced in life.
