30-Day Organizing Challenge with Ink + Volt

Raise your hand if you’re struggling to stay focused on your goals right now. If your hand is up, keep reading. If it’s down, please tell me all of your secrets immediately. I’m guessing we could all use a little boost of positivity and productivity, so I was thrilled when Ink + Volt asked me […]

The Power of Incremental Change

I started this month tired, anxious, and worried about the future, the health of the people I love, and the safety and lives of black people in this country. With the world feeling so scary, and not feeling confident that I know what I should be doing (much less what to tell anyone else to […]

How to Work From Home with Kids

Like most of you, my regular routine has been rocked. It has taken some time, and some trial and error, to sort out some kind of workable new normal for our busy family. In addition to running my business, I’m also writing a book this year, and had not factored homeschooling two children into my […]

What Minimalism Is and Isn’t

I have built my business (and entire life) around the concept of doing, and having, less, but better. My philosophy has been informed and inspired by the minimalist movement and ethos, however, as a busy working mom who happens to love pretty things, I have customized a minimalist philosophy that works for my real life.

5 Things Making Me Happy

I have been hearing from so many people that they are feeling an intense pressure to “take advantage” of this time at home and be wildly productive.

It’s a strange and disorienting time. So many of us have suddenly found ourselves working at home, juggling kids who are off school, and trying to check things off our lists while staying safe and sane. It’s a juggle to say the least. For those of you who feel like you have the bandwidth to […]

When Things Feel Beyond Our Control

It’s an intense time in the world – many of us have been forced to cancel plans, work from home, and be flexible with upcoming events and social outings. It feels disorienting. I’ve always been a fairly sensitive person, but I have found a few simple things that consistently help me reset when things feel […]

Numbing Vs. Nourishing

Every now and again, someone says something that stops me in my tracks. Something that shifts my perspective or helps me to look at something in a whole new way. I love when this happens. Here’s an example: I was having dinner with my friend, Jamie, and I was telling her about my struggle with […]

How to Start Taking Action

Let me tell you a story. A few years ago, my mentor asked me to give a keynote at her annual business mastermind. She wanted me to talk about virtual programs. Now, at the time, I had just launched my first ever virtual program, The Virtual Closet Makeover program, and I felt wildly under-qualified to […]
