Mentorship Program Spotlight: Loveleaf Co.

When I started my own business over ten years ago, I dreamed of having a mentor who could show me the ropes and tell me all about their mistakes so I could avoid making them myself. It wasn’t until I was already six or seven years in (having made and learned from a lot of […]

How to Holiday in Hard Times

As the winter holidays quickly approach, I’ve caught myself confronting Big Feelings – dread, paralysis, grief, and anxiety to name a few. As a child of divorce, the holidays have always been emotional for me, but as an adult I’ve managed to create and participate in some wonderful traditions that I have come to look […]

How I Finally Started Working Out

I’ve been meaning to have a regular workout routine for, oh, about twenty years, but I have had a difficult time prioritizing it. It could be that I’d rather do almost anything else. I’m not a gym person, or a runner, and I’ve never been much into team sports. I do love a good spin, […]

Showing Up vs. Giving Up

I’m not going to sugarcoat this: things have been a little dark over here.

Redefining Having It All

What does “having it all” mean to you? I love this question because it forces you to hone in on what feels important and essential to you as an individual and clarify your core values. Values-clarification is a huge part of what I do in my virtual programs, and my one on one business mentorship, […]

10 Things Helping Me Through This Hard Time

2020, am I right? I think I’m still in a bit of shock over everything that’s happened this year. I rallied hard the first few months while sheltering in place, and now I cry at most commercials, and sometimes break down at the dinner table. I know there are others who are dealing with much […]

Let’s Talk About Grief

I promise I have cheerier topics to share on the horizon, but today, I’m going to focus on grief, so buckle up! When my father died suddenly, eight years ago, I googled “how to grieve,” hoping that I might find some good answers. Instead, I found a lot of cliches, and felt even more alone. […]
