Before branching out with my own business, I spent over 10 years in the office products industry developing consumer products. In fact I worked for my family’s business and was planning to take over the company in the future with my siblings. But funny how plans usually have more twists and turns then you anticipate…. It was the desire to help people on a more personal level that led me from the corporate world to my work with small businesses. Although my career and life goals changed, my work in office products truly shaped and developed my love for the aesthetic and branding, the need to always provide a superior customer experience and it is where I honed my 1:1 management skills, by working with co-workers, customers and outside vendors. As someone who works with online businesses, my clients vary dramatically at times, but my #1 love is to work with coaches – life, business, career, leadership. Why you may ask? Well, the work that coaches facilitate is so deeply personal to me. They are the people that pulled me from a really bad professional and personal situation. (Remember how I said I worked for my family’s business, well unhappiness at work quickly invaded all aspects of my life.) My life coach made me see that I had amazing talents to share with the world. And here I am today… loving my work again! When not providing amazing client care (and performing the occasional magic trick or two), you can find me taking a stroll with my super supportive husband and our two rescue pups, catching a Gilmore Girls or Kitchen Nightmares marathon, or geeking out over all things organization.

My Secret for Doing It All

I hear from many clients how they’ve taken this business course and are a member of that online community. They’ve spent so much money on materials and resources to help them grow their business. And it’s typically followed up with thoughts about how smart they are and how they should be able to do it on their own.  They’re right about part of it – they are smart. But I want to re-write the programming that you should be able to do it all. And if you’re not, you aren’t measuring up to what it means to be a successful […]

Are You a Pixel Peeper?

OMG, have you ever heard of pixel peeping? My husband was sharing a story recently and mentioned this term, pixel peeping.  The brakes in my head stopped his words dead in their tracks. I mean, he continued talking but as soon as I heard that phrase, I heard nothing else he was saying.  It was a totally new term to me. One I thought was clever and funny and I had to figure out what it meant.  So I interrupted his story.  This is the point in my story that I tell you I have a terrible habit of interrupting […]

OH NO, I’m Locked Out!

The other day, I was at Trader Joe’s doing our weekly grocery shopping. Even though we’re a household of two humans, the cart was packed with all sorts of goodies, from fresh fruit to frozen vegetables and all the refrigerated items in between. I was so proud because it wasn’t even on my list to go to the grocery store until the weekend, but an unexpected gap in my schedule allowed me to cross this to-do off a day early. Woot! And then it happened.  I wheeled the cart over to my car in the 90 degree heat and click. […]

3 Lessons From Finally Taking a Vacation

I just returned from a glorious weeklong trip throughout the beautiful state of Oregon.  My husband and I celebrated 11 years of marriage with a road trip through one of our favorite places on the planet.  As we were covering hundreds of miles over the coast, valley and city regions, taking in new vistas, feeling the ocean breeze, indulging in yummy vegan fare, relaxing on a balcony overlooking ocean sunsets, I couldn’t help but think of you. No matter how much I try to turn my business brain off, it continues to spark and flicker.  So I turned my thoughts […]

What Does 30 Days Mean to You?

We are one month away from the end of summer.  This is the homestretch so I’ll get right to the point… What do you want to accomplish in the next 30 days?Do you know what you need to do to get there?  Our brains love clear starts and definite stops. It’s what bestselling authors Chip and Dan Heath call defining moments in their book, The Power of Moments.  The clean flipping of the calendar to a fresh month.  It signals our brain that we have a shiny, crisp page to start anew. And suddenly, you’re reinvigorated with untapped motivation to […]

Work it! Your mind that is.

Your mind is a wondrous part of you. It’s what gives humans the ability to feel and think and learn and evolve.  And your brain space is infinite. Truly, the only finite part of our lives is time.  But the kicker is that we aren’t just born being able to tap into that mental infinity.  When we’re little, the imagination our minds can conjure up seems to know no bounds.  At some point, we learn to tamp that down. To close off creative thinking and just “go with the flow”.  Which ends up doing us a massive disservice because it […]

Are Your Expectations in Line with Reality?

You’ve started to make traction in your business, only to stall out.  You’ve told everyone you know about your business.  And continue to put yourself out there to meet new people and get in front of the right people who you know need your special gift.  Yet, you’re unhappy.  It’s sooooo much more time and energy than you expected. And your journey isn’t moving nearly as fast as you thought it would.  Want to know why your business isn’t everything you thought it would be? First, check your expectations.  Are they realistic? Do you want to make $123k in your […]

Problem Solving for When You’re Stumped

There’s a saying that when you’re unhappy or distraught or just plain in a funk, go help someone else. By serving that person, you step outside of yourself and find your happiness again, pulling yourself out of the muck.  The very same principle applies to getting unstuck.  Maybe you aren’t sure why your launch isn’t producing the results you projected.  Or, you can’t see what your next business priority is. Or, a long-term client unexpectedly wraps up with you.  The answer – go solve another problem. Yours or another’s.  I was watching an episode of Game of Thrones, where two […]
