Lessons from 2016

As I reflect on 2016, I wanted to record some of the things I have learned. (Thank you Crystal Alston for the idea.) My last post was about “Relax, Reflect, Rejuvenate, Renovate, Remind.” Yesterday, I began a scheduled meditation practice for 2017. Today, I did some reflection on 2016 and future posts will talk about Rejuvenate, Renovate and Remind. I like the person I am. Taking care of myself is not selfish. It’s a gift I give to those I love. Sometimes it’s necessary to let go of relationships that no longer serve...

Happy New Year – Relax, Reflect, Rejuvenate, Renovate, Remind

As the world prepares to flip their calendars from 2016 to 2017, how will you prepare? Many people will celebrate by partying long into the night, watching the ball drop on Times Square in NYC, or having a quiet gathering with friends. Others will spend the day like any other day, doing whatever they do in a typical day. Some will make New Year’s resolutions to improve themselves – often in the form of health, diet and exercise. Some people will vow to find love, improve their relationships, save more money . . . whatever they...

Happy Holidays??

Happy Holidays??

The holidays can be a beautiful or a stressful time and sometimes, it can be both. I was talking with my daughter-in-law about all the stress she was experiencing because time was running out and she had more to accomplish before Christmas than time to accomplish it in. This reminded me of a Christmas when I was feeling the exact same way and my sons were teenagers. I remember sitting them down and saying, “Look, there are so many things I want to do before Christmas and I don’t have enough time to do it all. So I either need you...

How to Learn to be Alone

5 Signs You’re a Relationship Addict (& How to Learn to Be Alone) Published on www.hercampus.com by Autumn Dube As the fall weather approaches, single vibes seem to be fading as quickly as the summer sun. The upcoming seasons are known for daily snuggles and cozy romances. From carving pumpkins into scary faces to apple picking in matching flannels, you can probably think of a few couples who are “goals.” For some collegiettes, relationships are all they know while others genuinely prefer the single life. Can’t...

What’s Great about Your Day

Posted by on Oct 20, 2016 in Choice Theory, Self-Development, Self-growth | Comments Off on What’s Great about Your Day

This blog has multiple purposes but one of the main ones is to help people take control of their lives by putting their time and energy into the things they have power to control and/or influence instead of trying to control everyone else in their lives. A side benefit of doing this actually helps us move closer to the people we want and need in our lives. One aspect of doing this is learning to reprogram your brain to notice those things in your life that are great instead of the ones that aren’t – hence my typical Facebook...

Today I had a meeting with my team of professionals dedicated to helping me build my business. I am so fortunate to have these women on my side! It filled me with gratitude for having them in my life – Denise Daub (partner extraordinaire), Crystal Alston (social media guru), Shruti Tekwani (personal assistant and so much more) and Jennifer Stoner (marketing and PR specialist). Today we spent several hours discussing how to grow my business, how to make it work seamlessly with their support and how to help me reach of goal of more quality...

Women and Divorce

Posted by on Sep 29, 2012 in Grief and Loss, Relationship with Self, Relationships, Relationships - Work, Self-Development, Self-growth | Comments Off on Women and Divorce

I have joined forces with two other powerful women, Sharon Case, financial adviser; and Cathe Evans Williams, attorney, to provide educational classes to women making significant relationship decisions. Our first set of classes are geared toward women who are considering, going through or recovering from divorce. We will teach the financial, legal and emotional implications of divorce so our attendees can make informed, rather than strictly emotional, decisions. Our goal is to help women make smart relationship decisions based on up to date...

Changing Corporate Culture from Coercion to Cooperation

Posted by on Sep 27, 2012 in Relationships - Work | Comments Off on Changing Corporate Culture from Coercion to Cooperation

The management style of the industrial age no longer suits the informational age. The bureaucratic, top down, authoritarian style is not effective with today’s workers. People are no longer motivated by rewards or fear of punishment as much as by being connected to the bigger purpose, having need-satisfying work, and exercising their independence and creativity. I am often called into companies who are attempting to change their corporate culture from a controlling culture with managers who are coercive to a more democratic, inclusive,...

Parental behavior of substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse and criminal behavior are addressed.  If you know...

100 Days Left

Posted by on Sep 18, 2012 in Relationship with Self, Self-Development, Self-growth | Comments Off on 100 Days Left

Did you know that September 20th marks the day where there are 100 days left in 2012? How are you doing with the goals you set this year? Research shows we often overestimate what we can accomplish in one year but greatly underestimate what we can accomplish in five years! If that’s true, then you may not have accomplished all your goals. Don’t despair. You still have a good 100 days left. What can you realistically accomplish in the next 100 days? I once took a 90-day game challenge with Sorano Kelley and was amazed at how much I...
