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 […]

Are You Bringing the Best Energy to Achieve the Results You Want?

When you do anything in your business, whether it’s sending a follow up email to a prospective client, or leading your team, are you bringing the best energy to the situation for the outcome you desire?  What I mean is, are you stepping fully into leadership energy? Not sure? Reflect back a recent business instance that went better than expected or not as great as anticipated. It can be an occurrence that was in-person or virtual.  With that memory in mind, ask yourself: Did you go into the situation seeing yourself as the expert? Would you call yourself the leader […]

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 […]

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 […]
