It Pays To Look at Things Differently

I had a long day at my desk yesterday. I got a lot done, but was feeling a bit spent while trying to decide on a topic for this week's note to you.I decided to go for a walk to clear my head and move my body. Maybe if I ...

What If It Were Easy?

This past weekend, I experienced, without a doubt, the most hellacious move of my life. From running out of room in the moving truck and having to rent another to leading a caravan down the highway during a torrential thunderstorm to pulling over said caravan so I could pour the cat urine out ...

My Top 5 Stress Management Tools

Boy, oh boy, it's been a crazy couple of months. Three wakes, a funeral, Dad in and out of the hospital every month, navigating family dynamics around that, diving into round two of downsizing in preparation for a move, facing the sadness of leaving dear friends, emotionally preparing to get ...

Want To Make More Money? Take a Break

I recently had a call with a client who was beating herself up for not getting more done in her business. She knew what she should be doing, but couldn't seem to make any progress. Using my intuition when working with clients, I trust the questions that pop into my head. "What's ...
