Nancy Regan Icon

I’m Nancy Regan.
I was born and raised in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. I never felt like I belonged there, though (geographically speaking). I don’t like winter!

I’ll never forget something my mother told me. One winter day when I was six years old, I had my elbows propped up on the window sill and was resting my chin in my hands staring out at the falling snow. My mother told me that, with a sigh, I said “I just don’t belong here.”

Sometimes we just know. And that goes for our goals and dreams, too. That excited feeling you get when you think about what you want to achieve...kind of like something bubbling up inside your belly...is a clue that you're on the right path.

When you get that feeling, it’s Nature’s way of letting you know you have all the talent inside you to bring it to fruition. It’s one of Life’s laws – as certain as the law of gravity.

When I was 21 years old, I went to college in Daytona Beach, Florida (far away from the snow!). I chose to study Aerospace Engineering because the courses sounded “cool.” I had never dreamed of becoming an engineer, but Nature has a way of stepping in and nudging us in the right direction.

It was perfect, because that is what led me to the (technical) love of my life, Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). I started out as a civilian US Navy employee.

But in 2001, I left government service and started my own business helping organizations implement RCM. I still work in this field, and I love it.

But along the way, I encountered fierce invisible obstacles that tried with all their might to stop me in my tracks - to keep me from achieving my goals. They are:

  • Fear icon


  • The Voice icon

    The Voices

  • Negative Thoughts icon

    Negative Thoughts

  • perfection icon


  • Overwhelm icon


  • Comfort icon


  • Comparison icon


  • Yes

    I struggled with every one of them - a lot! At times, I allowed them to keep me small. But I have had wonderful teachers along the way who taught me to recognize them for what they are - bullies.

    And after a while (and a lot work!) I was on to them. I unleashed the powerful techniques I learned and I managed them.

    Sometimes I can’t believe how effective these techniques are when they are consistently implemented. They have been (and continue to be) so powerful in my own life, that I want to share them.

    And that’s what my speaking and teaching is all about. Contact me if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you!
