JUST BECAUSE YOU FEEL STUCK, DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE

Jul13
(You're welcome to drag this image to your desktop) People get stuck for a reason—we just don’t always know what that reason is.  Then we get so hung up on being stuck that we become even more stuck.  And so, the cycle perpetuates itself. What I’ve discovered from coaching hundreds of people is that there is a wealth of wisdom imbued in every moment we are stuck:  That perhaps we’re stuck simply because we’re moving too fast, w...

A True Story Of The Smart Woman Who Ruined Her Stupid Career (and Lived Happily Ever After)

Mar17
This timeless, intimate story delivers a profound lesson... Once upon a time, I was a very successful senior sales executive in the fashion industry. I traveled the world, made a boatload of money and was. ahem, very important.  I dined at appropriately chic restaurants, worked out at ‘The best' club in the city, dressed perpetually as though I was going on a photo shoot, and bossed people around a lot. I was not a very nice per...

THANK YOU on International Women’s Day

Mar08
The "Fearless Girl" statue faces Wall Street's "Charging Bull" statue. (Mark Lennihan / Associated Press) Over the course of many incarnations in the personal growth field, I have had the incomparable honor to stand before thousands of women from all over the world. In a multitude of roles, I have spoken on behalf of myself, in defense of others, and on the part of women who, however incorrectly, perceived that I have a voice greater than their ...

12 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR

Feb15
HAVING AN OPINION: It's yours. You earned it. You deserve it. Your opinion is not up for a vote. It is based on your beautiful, flawed and perfectly unique history. Your opinion is not an negotiable fact. Nor is it an alternative fact. It is subjective and it matters not if anyone agrees with you. BEING SELF-FULL: You are lovable and worthy. That warrants no discussion. Taking care of your needs, your wants and your desires is not selfish;...

How to Change Your Mood in a Minute!

Apr28
First, I have a confession to make: I’m a reformed news junkie: The New York Times, CNN, the local newspaper and anything else I could squeeze into the cracks of my all-too-busy life. The news made me feel knowledgeable, easy to converse with, fairly interesting and a bit of an intellectual snob. The other thing it made me was sad. Very sad. All day long I’d flash back on something I’d read or watched, and I’d feel my bo...

The One Line You MUST Cross if You Truly Want to Be Happy

Dec19
You've probably already noticed that, of late, people are 'coming out' in a myriad of ways having nothing to do with their sexual preference. People are becoming more authentic with us; more transparent with who they are and how they got to this particular place in their lives. They're sharing their back-stories, their triumph over defeat, their recovery from addiction or their tale of domestic violence. We're hearing stories about every...

Coaching Doesn’t Work … If You Don’t!

Dec11
Coaching doesn't work! Counseling doesn't work! Training doesn't work! It is you, my friend, who works. Or not. As a matter of fact.... The great book you just read didn't make a difference in your life! The inspiring class you recently took didn't make a difference in your life! The transformational conference you attended didn't make a difference in your life! It is you, my friend, who makes the difference in your own life. Or ...

12 Easy Ways to Get Inspired (and Stay That Way!)

Aug13
1.  GOAL-OLOGY 101 Start every day with at least one written goal, but not more than three. Make a very big deal when you successfully accomplish each goal, and do your own version of a happy dance as you cross it off your list. Do that, and I won’t have to tell you why. 2.  BE SELF-CENTERED If you’re going to feel inspired by having a great positive impact on the world, then your life purpose must be at the center of, and the reason f...

You Were Born to Have Impact!

Dec04
The rumor is true.... I did disappear for the past three weeks. I've been cybernating (as in hibernating in cyberland). In no time at all I went from cyber klutz to cyber savvy. For those of you who know me: It's been transformational. I have a few more finishing touches to put on my website in time for its debut this coming Monday, January 4th. Until then, I wanted to share this inspiring, heart opening, hope-filled video. Enjoy and do share ...
