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…

How DO You know who to Trust?

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

Every time I lead a group or an individual through a deep dive intensive, I am blown away and humbled by what is possible when we let go and trust the process. Our cognitive mind always thinks it knows the best way to get where we want to go, but the truth is, its perspective is always limited by our current levels of consciousness and belief systems. If you want to get radically different results, you have to be willing…

The Gift of Imperfection

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

I often say “Business is just another path of Soul growth”. This is because, in my own journey to building 3 successful businesses and having a life I love to wake up to everyday, I have discovered it’s more about who you become in the process. It’s about being who you need to BE. So you can do what you need to DO. And have what you want to HAVE. More than anything, it’s a journey of self acceptance. Learning to love…

Success Is Relative

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

It’s 98 degrees on a hot summer day. My box of 36 Hershey bars won’t last long in this heat. The clock is ticking. I have 2 hours to sell them all and get some lunch before being back at my sales seminar. I duck into the nearest business place and break out my winning smile. “Can I interest you ladies in a great deal in some candy today?” Their interested is peaked and I continue quickly. “I’ll give you…
