5 Things to do When Life Gets Messy

Things have felt a little messy recently. I found out that my book was stuck on a port in a far off place, and that after months of planning the timing of every last detail to correspond with the launch date, I would have to delay my launch by three weeks. Starting to travel for […]

5 Things to do When You’re Feeling Overwhelmed

Anyone else feeling stressed, swamped, or just generally overwhelmed – or just me? Admittedly, I have some incredible things going on in my life (book out this fall! Another book in the works!) but that doesn’t stop my brain from creating a whole host of reasons to feel anxious. I’ve always been a deeply sensitive […]

Showing Up vs. Giving Up

I’m not going to sugarcoat this: things have been a little dark over here. You see, the two things that have been keeping me sane during the global pandemic were seeing my friends and family outside, and taking daily walks. The weather has been glorious in California, and I’ve felt so lucky to be able […]

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. […]

I’ve always been a fairly sensitive person, but I have found a few simple things that consistently help me reset when things feel […]

The Fifteen-Minute Win: 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 how to create an online program. Now, at the time, I had just launched my first ever virtual program, The Virtual Closet Makeover program, and I […]

The Two Reasons You’re Not Organized

When I meet new clients for the first time I always start with a tour of their home. I’m looking for two things: volume of clutter and presence or lack of systems. These are the only two reasons that people struggle to stay organized and the good news is that they are both simple to […]

When You’ve Lost Your Way

I’ve had so many clients tell me recently that they “just don’t know how they got off course” or that they feel like they’ve “somehow totally lost control of their lives.” Of course these feelings extend far beyond having a cluttered or disorganized home. I’ve also had this feeling of being “off track” pop up […]

Pity Party + Powerful Questions

Last week was one of those weeks where everything just felt hard. Like every single area of my life had some major challenges to iron out. I pretty much wanted to curl up in a ball. Ever feel like that? It’s easy to wallow in self pity, but I truly didn’t want to get stuck […]
