To be Productive or Have Fun...How about both


On my Friday Group Calls, we discuss ways to be more productive, have some hot seat coaching, trainings within the NLP (Neuro-linguistics) framework and help each other out with our powerful global networks.


I’m constantly asking the group to have fun if not but one day out of the weekend and something fun during the week just for themselves…no one else. Others can participate; however, it must be for the individual. When you take time out for these fun activities and the relaxation, you will actually be more refreshed, happier, more productive and possibly come up with a solution to a problem that’s been bugging you.


A few months back, the question was reversed towards me. I replied with a list of things from researching the PH of soil and what plants needed to laying out the garden on a grid to cooking and ordering seeds. I love doing all of this however, this was not just for me and it was part of a “to-do” list not a “to have...

12 Days Of Inspiration - Day 12


Take a minute and look back...Careful not to stare. 
What do you see?
Are you looking at how far you have come or how far you want to go? Either way, you cannot get to where you are currently without taking that one step. To get to the next level, you must have the courage to take that next step into uncertainty.
That one step into uncertainty is exactly where the growth begins. Go ahead and leap or if you are more cautious, I will hold your hand and walk you across the bridge supporting you until you are able to believe in your badassness.

12 Days Of Inspiration - Day 11



Many people are on vacation or holiday this time of year. About two decades ago, I used to look forward to vacation; however, the dread of returning prevented me from enjoying the escape. The dread was returning to the faux-reality I created. I was not in love with my now ex-husband. My three now adult kids were great and l loved them dearly and still do (especially given that western doctors told me I would not be able to conceive given I had cervical cancer and endometriosis as a bonus). But I overcompensated by being all things to everyone except myself which included homeroom mom, troop leader, hockey, lacrosse and baseball mom that literally did everything for all the teams and Martha Stewart had nothing on me.


This authenticity has also enabled me to have a second chance at love, again after being apart for 37 years with a beautiful soul. 


Where is JOY missing in your life?


What brings you JOY?


Go there on vacation and come...

12 Days Of Inspiration - Day 10


I love looking at the new trends and even attempting to rock some of the fashion trends; however, I tend to revert back to the basic great jeans with a t-shirt or a cashmere sweater and silk shirt.
Other trends have come up in my business and I tried them out. But here is the thing, my number one core value is Authenticity so the trend felt fake. I listened to my heart and decided I was going to be classic with a few nuances so I can continue to serve many.
Trends come and go and I want to stay around just like a great Hermes scarf or a Chanel Blazer. 
Where in your life are you more Classic and where are you more Trendy? How can you merge the two worlds? Remember to make sure you are in alignment with your core values.
