Your Thoughts Matter and You Can Choose Your Thoughts

About Us

Who are we?  
We are a couple of people just like you.  In our lifetime we’ve had both wonderful experiences, and we’ve had devastating blows.
After years in large companies and consulting gigs, together we began a software company with very little knowledge of the startup space.  The net result of our wild 10+year ride in the startup world was a company that led to an industry-wide transformation that benefitted many.  
However, in the later years of this company, we were sued by our largest customer and almost went broke.  During that perilous time, we really probed our thinking, wondering why something so bad could happen to us.  It was in that painful and lengthy soul-searching that we began to understand how our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings impacted our entire life including the immediate problems we were facing.
In this difficult time, there was a moment when Peter finally found something that he couldn’t find fault in the logic.  It was the power of thought.  I noticed it right away when he approached me with his discovery.  I was immediately interested because Peter could always find a hole somewhere, but I was still skeptical.
Over the past few years, we have become very conscious of our thinking and have begun to understand some basic principles.  
While still actively learning about how our daily thinking impacts our life, we decided to begin to share what we’ve learned through You Can Choose books, videos, and seminars.

Kind Words about You Can Choose

Keeping our thoughts on what we want can be a challenge. Peter & Beth have practiced this mental discipline to achieve both personal and business success. I have benefitted in many ways from their teachings and mantra: You Can Choose!

Peter writes with a lot of clarity and depth. His words help you find truth and happiness at your core. I love how he says: There are no magic techniques, and yet at the same time there are simple things we can do to calm ourselves. I highly recommend his writings and teachings.
