The Law of Abundance

Last week, I had the strangest call. A prospect was grilling me about how I might help him. At some point, he got a bit spicy and announced, “You have watched the Secret and have bought into the Law of Abundance.” Say what? I have never gotten past the first five minutes of the movie, …

About All Things Busy

Today’s post is inspired by something I recently read. “I am so busy.” We all hear (and maybe even say) this phrase these days. Right? It’s kinda like a two-for-one, isn’t it? “I am so busy.” A boast and a complaint. Simultaneously. And if we think about it, we likely started using this phrase when …

When Life Gives Us Lemons

Lately, I have been thinking about when life gives us lemons. Such a polite way to refer to those devastating moments we have little to no control over. Y’know the ones I mean. Death of someone close. Loss of a job or a business. Divorce. Horrible illnesses that happen to ourselves and our loved ones. …

Can You Let Go, Just a Bit?

I was guesting on a podcast last week, and the host asked me what I thought the secret to success was. Without hesitation, I asked, “Can you let go, just a bit?” I have a history of being a classic type A control freak. I leave NOTHING to chance, over prepare for pretty much everything, …

Go With the Flow

The best part about this time of year is being with family, buying presents and gorging on deliciously rich food. (And not necessarily in that order.) The worst part about this time of year is the terrible exercise called, “Where did we fall short this year?” That is the piece I want to talk about …

The fun holiday festive spirit is here again! And one of the best ways to navigate this month is — Pretend you are a dove and BE Peace. Yup. …

Marinating Your Bourguignon

I finally figured out marinating!  Bear with me. The only way we can truly muster something worthwhile is to draw from our lived experience! Yup, that’s this week’s topic in a nutshell. See, I have been mulling around an idea for about ten years. It’s a different way to present how to start, scale, grow …

You Matter Too!

This week, you might think I am pretending to be your mother. NOT!!! I want to show you how you matter too! What I am doing is addressing a big trend that is circulating these days and imploring you not to go there. This has nothing to do with business, and everything to do with …

Half-Empty, Half-Full?

For the last two years, my brother has been going through a nasty separation/divorce process. It has been harrowing for two reasons: he is the first person to have gone through anything like this and he also is the first person who had a judge order a 50/50 split of matrimonial possessions between him and …
