About

The Short Story

Cordes is dedicated to helping small business owners stress less and do more that matters through her FLOW framework. She works closely with clients to help them develop successful habits that will help them go from surviving to thriving so they can flourish in their business and personal lives. Cordes founded her business in 2022 to help other leaders in the community learn strategies to find their sweet spot so they can continue to work with passion to make the world a better place.

With 30 years of experience supporting people to meet their goals, Cordes has developed a deep understanding of creating experiences that drive behavior change. Cordes has developed tailored learning solutions for insurance executives, international government officials, camp programs, language programs, CSPAN, WETA and the Prince George’s County School District, nonprofit and church leaders, and small business owners.

In addition to being an expert in habit change, Cordes has personally experienced stress, overwhelm and high anxiety levels as she sought to save the world through teaching in public schools. While her husband worked overseas, she taught full-time while caring for their 4 children and maintaining a household. She turned to meds, therapy and even an ER visit, but she transformed her life by implementing the time and stress management techniques she teaches today (you can read all about it in my long story).

Cordes's personal struggles with stress and burnout provide her with a deep understanding of the challenges business owners face in maintaining their well-being while striving for success. She has learned the art of setting boundaries, prioritizing mental health, time management, organizational strategies and fostering human connections in her own search for a balanced and fulfilled life.

 

She has experienced flow in her work and the profound satisfaction of having well-oiled systems, empowering relationships, increased well-being and a sense of deep purpose. Now, her mission is to help other women entrepreneurs find their sweet spot so that they become self-actualized and empowered to change the world!
