Yesterday I received an email from a potential business colleague profusely apologizing for having to reschedule our call.  Her child was sick, her normal sitter out of town, and she was home beating herself up for not being available. Last week there was a time-zone snafu with another call I had scheduled and the guy […]

Giving Compounded

I can hear him and picture him, as if he were in the room with me, “You’ve gotta give, give, give before you get, get, get!” I can’t help but smile when I think of Gary Rifkin.  My whole person lights up.  Gary embodies these words, borrowed from Joe Charbonneau.  They are words he lives […]

You Can’t Hide From You

It was a day I’ll never forget.  During my morning “zen time” I had been reading Nathaniel Brandon”s, The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem: The Definitive Work on Self-Esteem by the Leading Pioneer in the Field – I think it was around 2003 (it was definitely before my kiddo was born, as there hasn’t been much “zen” since) […]

When I started OnStage Leadership in Dallas in 2009, I hardly knew anyone there.  We had moved to Dallas two years before and I hadn’t really “plugged in”.  At the time I had been traveling a lot for work, so other than spending time with our wonderful neighbors, I felt pretty isolated.  2009 was a watershed year […]

Like you, I wear a million different hats.  Business owner.  Teacher.  Coach.  Consultant.  Mother.  Wife.  Sister.  Daughter.  Friend.  I treasure my hats.  I would like to think that how I define what it means to wear each hat determines the actions I take – how I spend my life.  On a perfect day, I get […]

What seems like a lifetime ago, in the summer of 2001, I got one of those crazy ideas. For those of you who know me, you know that this is not terribly unusual. I was in Seattle, running my corporate events company, Impression Events, and I found this breathtaking spot at the foot of Mt. […]

Is Your Philosophy Stuck in Your Head?

One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. – Eleanor Roosevelt There’s quite a lot of talk these […]

Are You Feeling Lucky?

We all have them. Those insane days where nothing seems to go as planned.  Your alarm doesn’t go off when should.  You miss your flight.  Your connecting flight is over-booked.  You get lost.  An hour has been added to your already too-long trek to your destination.  You’re low blood-sugar, have a headache, and can’t quite […]
