What We Want

Last week, I did an exercise where I wrote “What do you want?” at the top of a page. My brain-dumped list of answers turned into a personal article, which is now posted on Medium (in case you’d like to read about my vision for the world, as we now know it). I found this […]

Go Where You Are Wanted

Last week, I had the pleasure of trying to invest energy back into a relationship that had gone through a rough patch last year. Prior to the rough patch, the relationship meant a lot to me, so I went into the conversation with an open heart. I allowed myself to be vulnerable and hopeful. Unfortunately, […]

I Cannot Be an Entrepreneur

“My position was cut on Friday. Now, I am not sure what I want to do. I feel like I could finally do my own thing, but at the same time, I am just not sure I’m cut out to be an entrepreneur.”  This is a narrative I have heard over and over again in […]

Who Is Your Yoda?

What questions do you think Luke asked Yoda about his life and path? How do I know I’m on the right track? Who should I turn to for advice and guidance? How do I know I can trust them?  How can I avoid kissing a sibling on the lips?  How many of these questions have […]

Are Your Tools Helping or Hurting You?

I’ve been riding horses for over three decades.

How Uncertainty Gives Me Hope

Today, I am waking up in a world that feels full of individuals who bet it all on black and lost. It is a world filled with panic and uncertainty. We are all suffering from a lack of clarity, especially around who can (and should) be trusted to provide vital, life-saving information. Never before have […]

Just Do It? Sort of

I recently had a client tell me, “I finally listened to you and stopped my cycle of researching and planning. I just did what we had been talking about. Guess what!? It worked!” Are you a researcher or a planner like my client? I confess I am a total and complete planner. My mother-in-law jokes […]
