Becoming “Life-Proof”

Recently I saw an advertisement in a magazine for makeup and the slogan was, “It’s Life-Proof.” In other words, whatever life throws at you, it won’t mess up your makeup. After seeing the ad, it occurred to me that slogan pretty much sums up how we are conditioned practically from birth. We think we are […]

Life Without “In Order To”

Recently I woke up to a flurry of texts where several of my family members were communicating about a family situation. There was venting, opinions and of course, misunderstanding.

One of the challenges of communicating in general but especially with texting is how easily things can be misinterpreted. As I was trying to formulate my […]

In the Zone

We’ve all heard the phrase, “In the Zone,” and most of us have experienced it at some point both on and off the field. When it happens, for the most part we think of it as a happy accident or lucky; something you wish for but really don’t know how to make happen.

If you want a different result, YOU MUST CHANGE the way your life is currently structured. You can’t keep doing the same […]

Do you have Business Card Build-Up Syndrome?

Do you have business card build up syndrome? A stack of business cards piled on your desk that you have collected at various networking events and now have no idea what to do with them. Should you call, add them to your list, send them an email??? What’s the “right” thing to do?

A big […]

Real Change is Hard

I think of myself as an open-minded, flexible and change-friendly kind of girl. I have had many shifts and changes to deal with in my life and my business, some of them wanted and some not so much. I tend to look at the bright side, pull myself up by my bootstraps, dive […]

Knowledge is NOT Power

What if you access to greater performance or better results is not located in anything that you know? What if what you know is actually limiting your capacity to perform?

You have the ability to go beyond what you think is possible but you can’t get there by knowledge alone. Case in point; everyone knows […]
