I Had To Put My Mask On First

You might have noticed that I’m posting this on a different day and time then what you’re used to. Oh, and that you didn’t hear from me at all last week.  I wasn’t ignoring what was going on around the world.  It’s that I had to put on my own mask first.  The very short of it is that I was on vacation while the pandemic was declared and got stuck on a cruise ship that was rerouted 1100 miles. We made it home two days later than anticipated to then be placed in a 14-day at-home quarantine. And now […]

Why Are You Here?

On a regular basis, women ask me, what do they need to do to achieve their goals?  These women are smart and fierce and savvy. They aren’t looking for a one-and-done solution or quick fix. They know that won’t stick.  Yet, they understand that there are key actions you can take to create the results you want faster and with more ease.  So I ask, “Are you acting as if?” It sounds simple and almost childish (or maybe it’s just me – the phrase “as if” was all over the place during my tween years).  But truly, do you… Act […]

Don’t Scratch That Itch

A colleague forwarded me a video from Simon Sinek riffing on millennials in the workplace. (You can catch the full clip here.) It’s not what you think. Although, if you’re familiar with any of Sinek’s work, you likely know where he was headed.  Part way through the conversation, he laid this one on us: “Everything you want, you can have instantaneously. Everything you want, instant gratification. Except job satisfaction and strength of relationships. There ain’t no app for that. They are slow, meandering, uncomfortable, messy processes.”  Truthfully, this speaks to much more than the generation of millennials. It speaks to our […]

What I Learned About Business From My Rock Heroes

Quick question – are you a fan of Game of Thrones? Yes, you say – sweet! What about 00’s country music? Not so much. Well, that’s okay.  How about 90’s rock? Okay, now we’re getting somewhere.  Whether you’re a fan of GoT or country or rock music or none of the above, you’ll appreciate this story.  As the final season of GoT was coming to a close, the creators of the show partnered with Fender Guitars to create a collection of GoT-branded custom guitars.

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 […]

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. […]
