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. 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 […]

5 Things Making Me Happy

I’m not going to lie to you, the last few months have been brutal. California is being ravaged by lightning storms and fires, I’m anxious about the state of the world, and our country, and the upcoming election, we’re adjusting to distance learning and working from home on top of each other, and don’t even […]

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 […]

5 Things Making Me Happy

If you’re feeling a wee bit overwhelmed by the voices in your head and the nine billion self-improvement classes, meal prep courses, and How-to-Pivot-Your-Business classes, cluttering up your […]

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 […]

5 Reasons You Should Love Your Competition

I’ll admit it – I’m a very competitive person. I like winning. I like feeling successful. But, until a few years ago I was not very good at embracing my competition. I didn’t believe that there was enough room for all of us to succeed. When I came across someone with a stunning website, a […]
