White Space: Why You Need More Of It In Your Life

White space isn’t just for designing things in print, it’s for designing your life, too. And here’s why you need more of it and how it puts more LIFE into your precious time.

In the art of creating your life, white space needs to be included, too. In fact, the addition of white space...

How I Fell In Love

How I Fell In Love

It was an autumn day in New York City in the late 80’s. Crisp and clear, with that warm sun that somehow manages to have a whisper of winter in it. And I fell head over heels in love. With marketing. I know what you’re thinking, “Yuck! Marketing is sales-y and creepy and so forced!” Or, as a health coach client said to me recently, “I just want to work with my clients, I hate the marketing part.” But that’s because you don’t know marketing like I know marketing. And how powerful and important marketing is — how truly vital it is — to you doing the work you love in the world. What really made...

Why Being A Dreamer Is The Real First Step To Creating The Life and Work You Want

Even though hard work is often touted as the key to success, being a dreamer is the real first step to creating the life and work you want. “Nothing happens unless first a dream.”  ~ Carl Sandburg How can you know what you desire, how you want to feel, or what you want to work hard to create, if you don’t let your imagination run free first? The answer is, you can’t. And if you don’t let yourself dream big things, you’ll probably only see a very limited set of options — safe options that may be fear based and may not serve you at all. “All our dreams can come true, if we have the...

Posted by on May 16, 2017 in Achieving Goals, Blog, Business Building, Changing Habits, Decision-making, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Productivity, Worry and Anxiety | 2 comments

I’ve been dragging my feet lately about some things I need to do for my business. Ways I need to put myself out there, risks I need to take to bring my business to the next level. I could tell you it’s because I’m really busy or because Mercury was in Retrograde and both those things are true. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was also afraid of failure. Does this ever happen to you? You have a great idea — something new to offer in your business, or maybe you want to try a new hobby, or go for a new job — and you think about it all the time, but you don’t do anything about it.

Feeling Stagnant? Surprising Ideas For Getting Your Motivation Back

Can I share something with you I don’t usually like to admit? I lost my motivation. I tend to “overload my plate”, neglect my self care, and then have to recalibrate every once in a while. This time I’ve been on “all out” for so long I didn’t even see what was happening. I finally got the message when I realized how stuck I’ve been on moving a few projects forward. Have you lost your motivation, too? Do you ever feel like you: Can’t seem to make progress on things you really care about? Feel like you’re going in slow motion?
