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.

Oh Fudge, There’s Only 1 Month Left in the Year!

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you.  And no, you didn’t sleep through a few weeks of the month.  For my team and I, we really have only one month left in our year.  You see, we’re shutting down for the entire week of Thanksgiving and then again during the last two weeks of the year.  So we only have four weeks left to wrap up this year with a bow. When I realized that, I admit, light panic set in. A clenching of my chest.  Holy smokes, there’s some much left to do – newsletters, social media posts, gifts for […]

What Happened When I Forgot to be Myself

You might not know this, but since we’re all pals around here, here goes.  I coach in an online business program.  It isn’t even my program.  It’s someone else’s.  And I loved it. That is, until I didn’t. When I was asked to be the lead coach in the program, I admit that I was flattered. My ego was stroked a bit, too.  This person, who is the face and brand for the program, was trusting me to run the ship. From start to finish.  As the months leading up to the program dwindled, I dove in head first to […]

do you approach your team with a growth mindset?

I have a confession – I used to think I was “bad” with people. For years, I told myself that people didn’t like me because I didn’t know how to talk with them and didn’t understand how to be a good teammate to them.  And for all those years, it kept me safe. And at a distance. And deeply unhappy and unfulfilled.  On my work teams, I’d seek out any and every opportunity to perform my work independently.  I’d remain silent in meetings.  I blamed others for my dissatisfaction.  And it caused huge fractures on my work teams.  I heard […]

How to Prepare for BIG Events

Guess what?  The other day I had my mind blown!  I was not expecting it at all but there I was, sitting in a coaching session with a brand expert talking about my astrology chart.  As if that wasn’t already outside my norm, that’s when she hit me with it – the exact steps I should take when needing an energy boost.  My Vitality Practice, as she called it.  It turns out I gain energy through breath-work, which I had an inkling about.  And learning, which I knew.  But also, talking to people? What the what?!? This introvert was stunned. […]

Start Being the Leader Your Business is Waiting For

Earlier this year, my coach taught me all about THE GAP.  But it wasn’t the gap I was expecting.  I know about the chasm between your thoughts and facts (such great news, right?!?).  And that there’s a difference between fixed mindset and growth mindset.  Oh, there’s also the giant hole between management and leadership.  No, the gap she told me about is what appears when we talk about difficult conversations.  Let me back up a bit. Usually, we experience a situation with someone that is less-than-great.  Maybe your assistant consistently allows newsletters to go out with spelling errors after she’s […]

Get Off the Damn Phone – Here’s How

Want to be more productive? Get more accomplished in your day?  Simply not want to feel so far behind for once? Get off the damn phone! Was that too harsh for you? Well, this concept is something I feel so strongly about that sometimes, I shoot off at the mouth (or shall I say fingertips). But seriously, do you truly know how much time you spend looking at your device, checking emails to see what the latest sale is at Loft, spying on what your fav business guru is up, pondering whether to finally buy that ring light to make […]

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions – How to Clear Them Off Your List

You might know how I love to jam on the topic of time. All day long, I could talk about organizing your calendar and prioritizing your to-do list and the best times to write.  Because the one finite element of everyone’s life is TIME.  We all get the same 24 hours in each and every sweet day.  It’s the constant with all the other pieces being the variables.  And you know what’s the largest variable in the whole dang equation – YOU.  You choose exactly where your time is going.  One of the most brilliant ways I’ve found to get […]
