I am a professional Certified Life and Business Coach, speaker, author and lecturer. 

Thirty years ago I founded LifeSkills International with the objective of helping people lead a happier, more fulfilling life. I have coached a variety of people with a variety of difficulties and helped them work through them all. For several years, I held workshops on personal development throughout the Greater Houston Area. I have learned a lot over time and apply that information to  help you.

I write manuals and workbooks on personal development, management and relationships. I wrote three books, “Dynamic Leadership,” “Dealing with Difficult People” and “Untying the Knots of Life.”  Coaches and businesses regularly use them. I also wrote books for businesses on how their office works, delineating each task. This helps the employer fill a position without as much training, At this time they are out of print.

I get a deep satisfaction in helping you discover how to achieve what you want in life and show you how to get it. I work one on one with you to help you go to the next level and achieve total success. That includes anything from improving your parent/child relationship to moving ahead within your company. We work together to get a clear picture of your goals and formulate a plan to meet them. We make course changes as needed. This is Directive Coaching. I encourage you when you move out of your comfort zone or when you feel discouraged. 

Understanding people is especially helpful for an employer working with employees or someone looking for the right life partner. I also work with you if you are dealing with a difficult partner. I help you solve problems and improve communication. My coaching has saved marriages and helped people understand relationships. I have helped business owners develop teams and spend their time more efficiently. Businesses have used my ideas and created foundational changes.

I look for Goal oriented, dissatisfied people willing to work toward a better life for themselves and those they care about. 

 I am NOT affiliated with Life Skills International at, founded by Dr. Paul Hegstrom. I help abused victims. I do not try to help abusers. That is beyond my scope.

“Betty amazes me with her ability to hit the nail on the head, even with minimal information about a situation. Once she pinpoints the personality styles of the people involved, she can predict reactions, and defuse otherwise inevitable problems. You can run with her advice then and there, and learn to practice this yourself to repair relationships. ...and I mean it. She has saved my life on numerous occasions. I love her!” – S. Halpert

Over the last several years, I have explored the personality issue/problems with instructors in several academic setting. But I remain impressed with your uncanny skill at delivering the subject matter concisely and coherently. The easy style of your presentation creates an environment where maximum learning can take place. And your ability to field questions and address complex personality issues demonstrates your true mastery of the subject. The method you selected to organize the material has permitted me to retain it far more effectively than was the case with other instructors. Finally, I feel certain your teaching method was a substantial reason for my success in applying the information to solve real world personality problems. - C Henning


Ms. Eddy is articulate, intelligent and has an abundance of experience in problem solving skills. She is a global thinker and can see all dimensions to a given situation or problem. She believes in empowerment rather than giving one the solutions that one might want. I staff cases here on a regular basis to get another dimension of input on the planning and implementation of activity plans with my clientele. We discuss obstacles to goals and brainstorm new methods to achieve these goals with my clients. - D. M. Smith
