6 Reasons to Pursue Your Purpose and Not Money

6 Reasons to Pursue Your Purpose and Not Money

By | Money, Success | No Comments

“Let money be the sign from the universe that you are creating value for other people, not the measuring stick of your success or status in society.” ~ Tim Dennings, Author It’s so easy to get caught in a rut of trying to make as much money as possible. Don’t get me wrong – money is a fantastic resource. But when we get stuck in the trap of making money for the sake of making money it can get in…

The Power of Owning Your Story and Standing in Your Truth

“When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending.” ~ Brene Brown Sharing my story publicly is not the easiest thing I’ve ever done. We live in an image-obsessed society where being flawless is admired. We all have parts of our story that we feel vulnerable sharing with others.  Since human beings are wired to avoid pain, it’s easy to lock up the portions of our story that…

It’s Not About Being “Careful”

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

A few weeks ago, as I stepped out of my house in the late evening to walk my dog, Sadie, I started to slide on the ice outside my front door. Whoa! I looked around and saw that a thin layer of ice was covering the entire sidewalk and road! I had to walk her, so I figured out pretty quickly that if I walked on the grass it was safer. I slowly made my way up the block, carefully…

Messy Transitions

By | Personal Growth, Self Care | 2 Comments

Today marks the first day that I am officially an “empty nester”. The last of my three children left home yesterday for college. My older two have been gone for a while. (It’s a 10 year age difference between #2 and #3.) Last week we were all together for the first time in 6 years! #2 graduated from the Naval Officer training program and I seized the opportunity to create a mini family reunion around the celebration. My Mom flew…

The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious reason, during the last week of her visit, her very presence had been triggering me. [trig·ger (trĭg′ər) A device used to release or activate a…

THIS Is Why I Meditate!

By | Personal Growth, Success | 2 Comments

 Last week myself, my husband and my youngest son were heading to Jamaica for the weekend to attend my nieces wedding. We had a 7 am flight. It’s always a struggle to get my teenage son out the door that early in the morning, but after much nagging and shouting, we finally made it to the Baltimore airport at 5:30 am. I attempt to get us checked in, while my husband parks the car, but the kiosk keeps spitting out…

The Greatest Gifts

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

Monday was a ‘doozie’ 🙁 I woke up feeling anxious. So I listened to a guided meditation called “fear clear”. Then I picked up a book I’m currently enjoying: “The Book of Knowing and Worth” by Paul Selig. It didn’t take long before the voices in my head started reminding me that it was Monday and I “should” get up and “get to work”. Traditionally, Mondays are the day I work ‘on’ my business (marketing, planning) , not ‘in’ it…

The Power of Disappointment

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Ever just feel like you’re struggling? You know what you “should” be doing, yet you just can’t seem to muster up the motivation or inspiration to do it? You do just the bare minimum. The things that are already on your schedule. You show up for your commitments, but in the spaces around them, you collapse mindlessly in front of the tv or numb out watching movies on Netflix or Amazon prime. That was me last week. I felt exhausted! I’ve…

A Hero’s Journey

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

  I first met Lizel when I moved to Maryland in 2008. Her striking eyes were a window to a beautiful soul. What I also saw, was a protective wall of energy she had built around her. As an intuitive healer and empath, I often perceive what is not obvious to others. Lizel simultaneously loved and hated that I could see behind her well constructed masks and sophisticated defense mechanisms.  It was also the very reason she hired me as…

It Takes A Village (to be successful)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 4 Comments

It’s 60 minutes before I’m scheduled to present my talk. I’ve been calm all day. Surprisingly calm. None of the usual jitters. Which is interesting, since this is the first time I’m going to be making a paid offer to an audience at an event that is not mine. I’ve made many offers for free gifts that had people “running to the back of the room” and this is my next “stretch” – to make them an offer that requires them…
