Books That Will Change Your Business & Your Life

I love books. When I grew up there were only four channels on tv so as I kid I was either outside or lost inside of a great book. English literature was my favorite so Shakespeare’s plays, Jane Austin’s heroines, and the Bronte’s poems and stories filled my day. I was curious about the world […]

Recently I came upon a Japanese concept called “Ikigai” that presented to me by my mentor Marissa Murgatroyd.  Translated it means “the reason for being” or as we like to say…your purpose. It’s believed that when you discover your ikigai you’ll find your purpose in life. I learned about this concept in the context of […]

The Path to Freedom

Today is Independence Day, a declaration of freedom. I remember moments in my life when I felt free. Like the day I moved on campus and away from home when I started college. The day I moved into my first apartment. Or the day I moved across country to start a new life. Each of […]

Change Your Self-Talk, Change Your Life

Every second of the day, you are affirming some “truths” to yourself. Many of those affirmations are negative “truths” that, consequently, affect your happiness in a bad way. That is because what you affirm the most you believe and when you believe all the negative things you say to yourself, your day and your life […]

Do you feel constantly challenged by nagging bad habits that creep in every time you try to start something new or go after a goal?

The Power of Being Unapologetically You

I love inspirational songs, books, and sayings. When I saw Jen Sincero’s You’re A Badass, I had to pick it up. Megan Trainer’s Me Too became my morning alarm (if you don’t know it, listen to the chorus). I love Katy Perry’s Roar and This Is Me from the Greatest Showman brings a tear to my […]
