2020-07-02T10:32:28-07:00July 2nd, 2020|

It was the perfect summer-like weekend with mild temperatures in the mid 70’s. I had the unique opportunity to spend time with my three beautiful daughters. Yet, it was bittersweet, as yesterday we sent two back off to school. I feel deeply grateful for this “surprise” gift of time we were given. When the world shut down a few months ago and my girls were ushered back to the safety  Read more »

Stop and Smell the Roses

2020-06-22T11:17:58-07:00June 22nd, 2020|

It's a beautiful summer morning in the Northwest and I am about to embark on one of my favorite weekly activities - tending to my flower garden and picking a colorful, fragrant bouquet for my dining table. A couple of years ago, my Mother's Day gift was the flowers to plant my own garden, and now I am harvesting the fruits of those labors with stunning roses and other delightful  Read more »

Imagine creating your BEST DAY. One where you have a lot of energy, you are focused, you are productive, you are getting the right things done in record time. And, you feel great about your accomplishments. The problem is many of us aren't feeling this way right now.

The #1 Sleep Rule to Beat Your Stress

2020-05-21T15:34:05-07:00May 21st, 2020|

One of the top complaints I am hearing from my clients, colleagues and friends is, “I just can’t sleep.” Can you relate? I can too. Although sleep is something I fight hard for, the uncertainty of today’s new “business unusual” is enough to keep anyone up at night. There is no doubt about it, these are unprecedented, and yes - scary times we are living in. Stress is at an  Read more »

5 Powerful Steps to Change Your Thinking

2020-05-15T11:49:44-07:00May 15th, 2020|

Mind over Matter. Apparently, I said this to my kids a lot when they were growing up. We were having a conversation the other day where I asked my daughters what words or phrases they remembered hearing over and over. “Mind over matter” was at the top of their list along with a few others. Do your best. You can do it. Be nice. When they would get in an  Read more »

Change Your Perspective, Change Your Life

2020-05-07T11:39:56-07:00May 7th, 2020|

For years I have made my Sunday trip to the grocery store to stock up for the week. These days in the midst of a global pandemic, it is very different. Last week the atmosphere was heavy. I could feel the fear and apprehension of the customers. People self-distanced. No smiles. No eye contact. Some people were in masks, gloves, and even goggles. Everywhere, complete silence. Some people walked into  Read more »

It is easy to get caught up in our emotions sometimes. Has this happened to you? You were simply going through your day and then receive an upsetting phone call, find yourself facing a big problem at work, or you get in a fight with your spouse. With lightening speed your mood changes. Emotions take over and you may get to a place where you think these negative emotions define  Read more »

We are in unprecedented times as the global pandemic continues to expand. Businesses are implementing contingency plans to protect their team members and clients, and still do their best to keep their organizations running. Leaders are working hard to continue to do business as usual when business is “not” usual. As a leader you may still be working with your people in person because you are in a critical industry  Read more »

What You CAN Do to Thrive in Times of Uncertainty

2020-03-19T15:15:16-07:00March 19th, 2020|

As we watch the evolving and escalating nature of the COVID-19, it seems every day we are told something else we can’t do. Out of necessity we have left the top levels of the needs pyramid of self-actualization, to pure survival mode with concern for the basics of having enough food and toiletries. If you have braved the grocery story in the last few days, they have gone from bustling  Read more »

5 Ways to Be More Present

2020-03-05T17:14:16-08:00March 5th, 2020|

Do you have a hard time being present? When my children were small, I was a single mother working hard to be everything my kids needed me to be, while putting in a lot of hours running my growing company. Looking back I found it very difficult to be present. When I wasn’t working I was taking my kids from one activity to another. I didn’t realize then how “on  Read more »
