No Commitment, No Trust, No Results (Are You “That Guy”?)

I have a friend and colleague who always asks to get together. Great guy. Fun. Interesting. It’s always enjoyable to see him. We eagerly schedule something. Without fail, he either cancels or has to reschedule. He routinely schedules other things during the time we’ve planned to meet. It could be that he’s just disorganized. It […]

If we want people to invest their emotional energy, we need to put more skin in the game.

Don’t Fool Yourself, People Know

I don’t remember where I heard it.  I do remember it was eons ago, further back than I could attempt to pin down, but somewhere along my journey, I remember someone once saying, “Who you are in one area of your life is who you are in every area of your life.”  It stuck with […]

I’ve spent more time in my head, since I’ve moved to NY and I don’t think I’m alone in that.  I remember when I first moved here I was like an open vessel, absorbing input with all my senses.  It was so exciting!  And so exhausting.  I would come home from the city and be […]

I never thought I’d ever-in-a-million-years hear myself say this, but I loved my doctor’s appointment last Friday.  It’s a weird experience to love something you’ve always dreaded.  It left me feeling a bit confused.  I had always known what to expect and now I don’t.  And I think that’s the one of the greatest gifts […]

People talk about the “terrible twos”, but there was nothing terrible about “two” for our family.  Two was easy.  Jeremy would joyfully do whatever we asked.  He would eat what we put in front of him.  Pick up his toys without argument or complaint.  We were his heroes.  Then he started to develop free will.

  Yesterday, after all the presents were released into the wild and the boys went to check out the new Skylanders that showed up under the tree, I tiptoed upstairs for some mommy-quiet-time and found myself watching 2013 Paleyfest interviews of the Nashville cast on Hulu.  I expected escape, not inspiration, but what the actors […]

Who’s in Your Corner?

I don’t know if I could have had the success I’ve had launching my business, if I hadn’t started in Dallas.  One of the things I so love about Dallas is that the lines between business and friendship are blurred.  I’ve lived in places where you don’t talk business with your friends – it’s taboo.  […]
