Sallie Holder holding HITTING ROCK MIDDLE book

Hitting Rock Middle is not about being stuck or being mediocre. Hitting Rock Middle is the point where you have all of the external success markers, but feel empty inside.

It’s about being successful, then discovering the success you sought isn’t right for you and believing change from there is impossible.

I’m here to tell you change is possible and exactly how to make it happen.

Let me help you break out of your Rock Middle and reach your greatest potential.
