Go With the Flow

Go With the Flow

In our most recent episode, 147, of our Uniquely Brilliant podcast, Diana and I tackled the challenge of figuring out how to get to the next place when we don’t know what the next place is. As you can imagine, this topic stemmed from a conversation about making...
Everything In Its Own Time

Everything In Its Own Time

Lately, I’ve been confronted with the disconnect between the universe’s timing and mine. There are things that I feel like I need right now: MAD! Work/Space (the coworking space I started in March – YIKES!) filled with women working and connecting, to fully own the...
You’ve Got This

You’ve Got This

Recently I was asked to do a virtual presentation to a business networking group to provide motivation and encouragement for our membership of local small businesses. As I thought about what to talk about, this thought kept coming up, “What got you here will get...
Walk With the Light

Walk With the Light

From the end of December 2019. This week we have a new moon, an eclipse, and a new decade. It’s the perfect time to focus on embracing the light. Sounds great doesn’t it? It’s also hard. Here’s what I’ve learned through excruciating experience. I rarely recognize the...

Strengths, people, strengths

Strengths, people, strengths

So, I’m reading the Harvard Business Review this morning. Their cover story is Why Feedback Fails. I laugh. I laugh because I know why feedback fails in businesses – for the same reason it fails in school and in life in general. Feedback fails when...

Of Vinaigrettes and Yoga

If you’re not breathing, it’s a circus trick. – Sonya This first time I heard Sonya say that in yoga, I unlocked my jaw, stopped biting my lip, gulped for air, then burst out laughing. Obviously, it struck a chord with me. About the 12th time I heard it, I...
Stop polishing the glass ceiling

Stop polishing the glass ceiling

Really. Stop. Polishing the glass ceiling is insidious because we don’t even realize we’re doing it. It happens when we ask a question, ask for permission, look for validation or apologize for taking a risk. I did it this morning with my own 25 year old son, Ken. I’m...
How to Trust Yourself

How to Trust Yourself

Remember the cobra, Kaa, in The Jungle Book (1967) movie and his borderline creepy song Trust in Me? His weird blue and yellow eyes hypnotized Mowgli into doing whatever he said. How many times have you found yourself trusting other people more than you trust...
