What’s the Impact You are Here to Have?

Posted by on Jun 22, 2015 | No Comments

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 […]

Who’s Your Anti-Busy-Buddy?

Posted by on Apr 6, 2015 | No Comments

“I wish I could” she said,  “I never have time for lunch.  It’s crazy-busy here.  Always.” “Oh I hear ya!  This is the first time I’ve come up for air in weeks!” I replied, feeling like I had to somehow justify the unfilled gap in my day. As a culture we wear our overwhelm like […]

The Gateway to Your Best Self

As half of the nation continues to battle the elements, with more snow than we know what to do with, I’m reminded of my childhood.  As many of you know, I grew up on a cattle ranch in northwestern Montana.  My dad had grown-up in Texas and had always yearned to have land and a ranch, […]

Sustaining Extraordinary Performance

Posted by on Jan 5, 2015 | No Comments

There are moments in time that touch us so deeply that they reinforce the essence of what it means to be human.   Saturday night my husband and I had the privilege of seeing one of the final performances for Once on Broadway and that was how I felt.  It was breathtaking. I sat in the mezzanine […]

Making Way For Possibility in 2015

What an extraordinary site, to watch the networks flash through the New Year’s celebrations unfolding around the world.  Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Moscow, Paris, London, and of course here in New York, fireworks lit the night to mark 2015’s grand entrance.  The one night a year in which, worldwide, we’re focused on what’s possible. It’s […]

You Can Be a Positive Force

There are people who show up in our lives and change us for the better.  We often don’t realize it when it’s happening, and we sometimes don’t appreciate it when we do.  They shape who we are and who we will become.  They don’t mean to have such a big impact – they’re just doing […]

Keeping the Magic Alive

One of the many things I love about having a kiddo is that I get an excuse to watch all the Christmas movies and reignite the wonder of childhood.  There’s something magical about holiday rituals.  Last night, my little family of three snuggled together to watch Elf and when a narwhal made a cameo appearance it […]

Your Reason to Give Thanks

As we prepare to enter the Turkey-Day-fray, I’m remembering my kiddo’s first official Thanksgiving.  Since my mother set the feast-bar pretty high in my family, prepping for a holiday meal is a lot like preparing for the Pope, or Brad Pitt, or Oprah, or whoever-else you might have picked when you played the game “If […]

Do You Really Want to Influence?

When I met Jessica*, I was immediately struck by her passion and clarity.  She was a woman on a mission!  She could see that her company was committed to doing things the way they had always been done, and that was causing the best-and-the-brightest to jump ship.  As she explained it, people were leaving because they wanted to […]

Are You Powerful or Just Jerky?

Have you ever done something that, immediately following, you get that icky “that-wasn’t-my-best-me” feeling?  I recently I got it, and I’m still questioning what I shoulda/coulda done differently. We’ve been in NY for about a couple of years now but I still feel like I’m learning the ropes.  Things happen fast here.  You need to […]
