Presence – What Does it Really Mean?

I was having a conversation with a friend the other day and we got talking about presence and what it feels like when the person you’re with is truly present. It’s also an incredible feeling to be fully present for others and it can help you feel more fulfilled and successful in all areas of […]

5 Ways You Matter

We’ve all had times in our life where we haven’t felt like we’re enough. We’re not smart enough, pretty enough, successful enough, tough enough, vulnerable enough…you get the picture. It’s human. The thing is, YOU MATTER. Plain and simple. It’s just believing it.  We’re often our own worst enemies because we let our minds run […]

The Perfectionist’s Lie

I have to tell you that ironically, this was one of the hardest videos I’ve done. For some reason, I just couldn’t get it “right”.  It took many tries to get this video recorded which made me laugh given that the topic at hand is perfectionism. 🙂 Having said that, I do have high standards […]

The Truth About Jealousy

Jealousy is an interesting thing. I heard someone saying recently that they were frustrated with their progress and that they thought they should be further ahead given their age. They compared themselves to some other people who had “made it” and the feeling of jealousy was taking over the perspective of their own life. They […]

When Quitting is Empowering

Have you ever thought about quitting something but you weren’t sure if it was the right thing to do? Thought maybe you were “copping out” or just not focused enough? I know so many people (including myself) who keep slogging it out when it might be time to quit and move on instead. I want to […]

Make a Change Inevitable in 3 Easy Steps

If you’re human, which I assume you are, you’ve probably had times when you’ve “dabbled” with quitting something.

You Deserve to Appreciate How Great You Are!

If you’re anything like me and have a busy life where you’re consistently pushing boundaries, it’s easy to forget to appreciate how great you are!  I don’t mean being egotistical.

How to Avoid Burnout

As a group of busy professional and business women, all of us could identify with the challenge of taking care of ourselves.  The expectations we put on ourselves to give not just to our businesses and professions but also to […]

He Was Shot Down but His Legacy Will Live On

Last week, my friend Rafael Bejarano was travelling in Egypt – doing his work and living his mission when he was shot down during an air raid by Egyptian militants. He was innocently minding his own business, eating lunch when it all unfolded. He was a peaceful, loving, giving man. A man who touched lives and […]

How to Use Overwhelm to Your Advantage

Overwhelm can sometimes stop you in your tracks and prevent you from moving forward when you most need to.  I can certainly attest to this and I know I’m not the only one who gets that feeling of panic periodically. I’m currently in a really busy period of life lately. Between my businesses, speaking at events, […]

The Real Reason You Should Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

I love getting great questions from other people that make me think and learn. I was recently asked why we’re always being told to step outside of our comfort zone when it’s so darn uncomfortable! What a great question! It’s not always easy or natural to go into that uncomfortable place. It can be even harder […]

How to Overcome Failure

If you’re like me, “failing” is rarely fun and is often a challenge to overcome. I’ve had more “failures” than I can count and at the same time, I really believe they had to happen to get me to where I am today. One of those “failures” was a website business that I started last […]

How to Say No With Grace

Have you ever been in that difficult place where you want to say ‘no’ to someone but find yourself saying ‘yes’ instead? (And then you kick yourself after).

One Small Decision Can Change Your Life

Last year when I said “yes” to an opportunity to join an incredible group of Empowerment Leaders and Transformational Coaches in Liberia, Africa, I had no idea the impact that decision would have on my life and the lives of others. Sometimes, the smallest decisions can be the most life changing.  The incredible part was that […]

As you may know, I’m part of an incredible Mastermind Group that meets weekly.  Each week we share our successes and then we spend some time problem solving or brainstorming ideas to take our business and life to the next level.

Eliminate Stress in 16 Seconds or Less!

Over the past several years, I’ve been researching and trying different things to help manage stress.

Your Gut Has a Mind of it’s Own

Your Gut and Intuition are Important to Follow When Making Big Decisions I was recently in a business meeting and we were discussing a big decision we had to make.  Something just wasn’t right. I couldn’t put my finger on it in the moment, but I just knew that what the others wanted to do […]

Trick Your Brain into Getting Stuff Done! We’ve all have times when we’ve procrastinated.  Whether you clean your house like crazy (something I’ve done), you surf Google or YouTube and go down an infinite bunny trail of web surfing or just plain old avoid a task instead of buckling down and getting something done, you know what I […]
