I'm changing things up big time for 2023...

  I shared last week with you all that I’ve been sitting with the question, “Is this as good as it gets?!” My hope by sharing this personal note with you, it inspires you to consider what you really want more of in your lives, even if the rational side of you is saying, ‘that’s More

Do you ever wonder "Is this as good as it can get?"

My oldest son’s 14th Birthday. Everybody older always tells you how quickly life goes by. It’s so cliche, but it’s so true. I found myself getting a bit nostalgic so stepped outside to write you all. When my oldest was born, we were quite settled in London and if you’d told me this PNW gal More

Are you leading from your core VALUES?

We’re constantly moving into new seasons, albeit another birthday, children growing up, new job… All of these can quickly cause busyness, overwhelm and as humans, our knee-jerk reaction is to cut stuff out. Only I see it all the time with my driven clients, the stuff that gets cut is the stuff that feeds their More

I have some questions for you… Are you wanting your team(s) to make a bigger impact? Put out bolder creative solutions? Attract a sexy new client? Increase your revenue? Grow your own leadership? Experience way more FUN in the process? … We’re often told to swing for the fences and take the big risk, do More

What I learned from Norman Lear

When it comes to hearing inspiring people talk, I’ve seen a lot of really incredible people over the years. Truth be told, I’ve never quite had the experience like I had last week. My dear friends, founders of Creative Visions, Amy and Kathy Eldon, set up an intimate conversation between John Turtletaub and Norman Lear. More

What’s your Achilles heel that gets in the way of you leading?

Here’s what I’m noticing this week… We live in a world of information overload  –  right?  – and it’s easy to get sucked into thinking that the more we know, the more we’ll become better leaders. As if by simply reading or listening to ‘the best 5 tools’ will translate to new behavior. Information doesn’t equal More

Have things been feeling "Messy?"

I have a few questions for you, When’s the last time you answered the question, “How’s it going?” with the real stuff, and not just, “I’m good, but busy and tired.”? When was the last time you sat at another human’s dining room table and talked about your relationships, your work, your health, your worries, More

Stop wanting... and do THIS instead.

I have a bee in my bonnet about all the talk I hear in the self-help world as it relates to wanting and manifesting desires, because it’s simply not enough to ‘want.’ I think back to when I was desiring a career that invigorated me, while making a positive impact on humanity and still paid More

August, Already?!

Golly gee whizz, time goes fast. I’m on a two-week holiday up in the PNW, and it’s been wonderful and tiring at the same time – traveling with 4 boys. Grateful for my amazing husband. ⁠ ⁠The woman in this photo is like a 2nd grandma to me, and she’s going to be turning 90 More

Money Money Money...

Money is on my mind this week as I filled up my car this weekend and $100 didn’t even fill my tank. Not to mention all this talk about a recession. Seriously?! There’s a massive sense of unknown right now, and I’m noticing how it’s bringing up my client’s money stuff (me included) and it’s More

We All Need a Safe Harbor

Anyone else find themselves needing space over the last couple of days to mentally, emotionally and physically recharge from ALL that is going on in the world?! I spent time with John and our oldest son (littles are still away at sleepaway camp) doing a whole lot of nothing and I LOVED IT. I found More

Absolutely your Humanity + Leadership can Co-exist

My heart is numb from all that happened last week at Robb Elementary. In fact, it’s been numb for a while as I’m still processing what happened in Buffalo. As a Mama of an 11 year old and a 9 year old boy, the pain I imagine the families feel must be unbearable and paralyzing. More

Are you making everything significant in your life?

Something has happened in the last few years (ok… a lot has happened) but *in* this moment, I’m really noticing how we make *everything* have so much significance. I notice it everywhere. I notice it with business owners, who get stuck taking action because they’re so fixated on knowing their purpose. I notice it with More

We Spent a Week in Belize 🌴

We just returned from a week in Belize. It’s incredible what happens when you create space in your life and protect it with clear boundaries.
