  • How Wisdom Shows Up

    One of the things I love about moving forward in the game of life is the realization that learning NEVER ends. When I was younger, I believed that wisdom came to “old people” when they knew all they could about others. Fast forward, I’ve come to know that wisdom is learning about yourself. You cannot…

  • Don’t Let Old Messages Hold You Back

    For a good part of my life I thought I was terrible at math. If I’d make an error when figuring out how much to tip, I’d say, “I suck at math.”  The problem is that every time I said this it reinforced the belief that I was not good at math. Let’s add in…

  • For the Love of Writing

    I love to write, always have. I wrote my first “book” back in 7th grade. How I treasured creating the story. I continued to write poetry and lyrics as an angsty teen. The process was my refuge. Fast forward to the 90’s as a stay-at-home Mom, I had my first poem published in Lady Bug…

  • Can Work and Workouts Coexist?

    After only 6 weeks in my new position, I hear the voices of my clients from the past (my clients from the fitness world). Client after client would swear that they just didn’t have time to exercise and eating well was near impossible due to eating out for business meetings.  I rarely bought it and…

  • Why Women Explain and Men Don’t

      How many times have you had to cancel on someone and when you called  to leave a message, you explained every last detail? “I’m sorry, but I have to cancel my appointment today. My son has a cold and his teacher called me to say that he’s now got a fever. He’s been dealing…
