• The Right Way to Use Intuition to Make Your Next Career Move

    We hear it all the time. People leave the safety of their steadfast careers only to become best-selling authors, millionaires and even famous talk show hosts. From Steve Jobs to Oprah who has said, “I’ve trusted the still, small voice of intuition my entire life. And the only time I’ve made mistakes is when I didn’t listen. For all the major moves in my life—to Baltimore, to Chicago, to own my show, and to end it—I’ve trusted my instincts,” successful people risk big. But not every opportunity is a good one. How do you know whether saying, “Yes,” will lead you down the right path or one towards financial loss and…

  • Don’t Be Disappointed in 2019

    I used to have friends that could not tolerate the subtle flake of disappointment. They fell apart if their favorite dish wasn’t up to par, which was the reason why we rarely ventured to new restaurants together. I didn’t get it. What’s the big deal if we’re subtly uncomfortable? Why does it matter if I didn’t order the seasonal flavor the last time and they’re out of season this time? Until I got older, and I too crumbled at the slightest slice of disappointment. What age uncovered is oodles of long-held disappointments. It’s not just that your meat was undercooked, it’s that you haven’t and maybe won’t ever finish that…

  • Happy Holidays!

    This time of year, you’re probably being slammed by advertisers vying for your wallet using psychology to bait you. They’ll tell you that what you have is not enough-that this wrinkle cream or that sparkling top will make you younger, and prettier. Underneath it all, they are feeding into your fear of being unworthy and not good enough. Because we all desire to be desirable, we temporarily forgo our rational minds. We forget that we already have a medicine cabinet full of expensive serums and creams or that our closet is bursting with tops we haven’t yet worn. So I want you to remember this. What you have is not…

  • Failing Beautifully

    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and even with the last few years being the most challenging in my life, my cup runneth over. Last year, I told someone that I wanted 2018 to be my year of failure. I’m not a masochist, but failure leads to evolving and I know I’m on a path towards self-growth. He looked at me incredulously. As an entrepreneur, the idea of failing seemed like a terrible wish. And I’ll tell you something. It kind of was. Here’s something you won’t read on other blog posts, see pinned on Pinterest or in an Instastory. I failed tremendously in 2018. A tidal wave of rejections in emails and…

  • No Matter What…Grace

    Even though you’re worn down, and can’t get your kid to sleep or listen. Even though you lost your job, and everyone’s depending on your paycheck. Even though you think you’re too old to make a difference, or messed up BIG, or your decision ended up hurting someone to the point that their life has changed, Even though your loved one is sick or addicted or suffering, and you cannot help them. Even though you lost it with your kids, disappointed your co-workers, and never fulfilled that pearl of a dream. Even then. Even then, there’s grace. Even then, there is a crack in the cold concrete and a ray…

  • A Simple Life Changing Exercise

    I hope you had the chance to catch Kris Carr’s Healing Cancer World Summit. This free event was meant for cancer patients and caregivers, but there was a plethora of life saving information for everyone. It was one lightbulb moment after another-a truly holistic endeavor to care for your entire being from what to eat to how to truly love your whole self. One of the pearls I picked up from this online event was an exercise to help determine your purpose and life goal. Since a strong desire to live is essential for anyone struggling with chronic illness like cancer, this was an important part of the healing process.…

  • The Story of What If

    I barely remember anything about my early school years. But there was one thing my elementary teacher said that stands out more than 30 years later. “Never use, ‘What if,'” she said. “It will never get you anywhere.” Okay I don’t remember her exact words, but I remember the feeling of fear I had afterwards. For years, I deemed it criminal like the, ‘F’ word or other naughty language I was forbidden to use. It was only recently that I’ve questioned the question. What if actually gathered hope in my life. What if allowed me to create. What if gave me freedom to write. What if I never used, ‘What…
