Falling Off The Wagon!

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

Have you ever noticed how hard you have to work just to take some time off? Lol! I just got back from a weeks vacation. (This was major progress because last summer we only did a “Daycation” because I hadn’t planned ahead). I’m really celebrating my growth because I actually rested and relaxed and didn’t do so many activities that I would need a vacation to get over the vacation! (Can you relate?) lol I was so energized when I…

The Power Of Self-Care

By Uncategorized No Comments

What is self care? It is caring for yourself deeply and deliberately. It is taking care of yourself by making choices and decisions that honor and reflect the true nature of your soul. It’s about recognizing – and meeting – your own needs. It’s about being conscious and conscientious in speaking your truth and making choices from a place of love and compassion instead of guilt and obligation. Unfortunately, It is not a concept that has been modeled very well,…

The Social Media Dilemma

By Personal Growth No Comments

[rant warning] I’m so tired of hearing about how social media leads to social comparisons and makes people depressed (because people only post themselves at their best, never at their worst, which skews our view of them and their reality.) I say so $&@!-ing what!!! You always have a CHOICE. If you compare yourself to someone else and find yourself lacking, you can be depressed and hopeless … OR …you can be inspired! (I think there is way too much…

Are You All In?

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

What does that question mean to you? To me it means: Am I playing full out? Am I invested 100%? (in whatever I am choosing to put my time, energy and money into) I recently realized I have not always been “All in”. I have spent the majority of my life operating at a fraction of my true potential – for all kinds of reasons. Mostly because I didn’t love and value myself enough, cared too much about what other…

How To Be Unstoppable

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

Recently, I was working with a copywriter to redo the copy on my website and we were working on my personal story for my “About Helen” page. In telling the different stories from different stages of my life journey, I had an incredible realization: I have always been unstoppable! The principles that I teach my clients that help them to stand unapologetically and unambiguously in their power and their truth, are exactly the tools and principles that I learned in…

The Power of Self Love

By Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

The most important love relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself. The relationship with yourself is primary. It informs and influences all the other relationships in your life: with your spouse, friends, children, career, clients, money… Here’s how it works: The world is just a great big mirror reflecting you back to yourself. Your beliefs, abundance, joys, sorrows. It makes perfect sense doesn’t it? How else can you see yourself but in a mirror? So the…

What Stops You?

By Business Growth, Personal Growth 2 Comments

Last week at my business mastermind retreat we were doing an exercise to uncover what stops us on our journey to success. My coach told me she thought that what stops me is “not wanting to do the work”. She meant the “hard work” it takes to make a business successful. I initially disagreed. After all, My parents taught me the value of hard work and I have worked hard my whole life. So “hard”, in fact, that I burned…

The Power of Improv

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

A few weeks ago I took an improv class. Just for the heck of it. Improv is a form of acting and theater that is about being unscripted and spontaneous. I’d heard really good reviews of the class which was specifically geared towards improving our sales skills and, as a Life Coach, one of the things I often have my clients do is to go on a “passion quest”: try new things they’re attracted to, or things they love to…

The Power of Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

By Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

Last week I was in NYC with my business coach and our mastermind group. Every 3 months we get together to connect, share, learn and grow our businesses and ourselves. (As one of my mentors says “you’ll only ever grow your business as big as you grow yourself because your business is a reflection of you”). We spend 2 1/2 days shining the light of awareness on the areas of our businesses that are working (and celebrating) as well as…
