In the Name of Being Honest

  “So casually cruel in the name of being honest.” It’s a stop-me-in-my-soprano-voice lyric from the T-Swift song “All Too Well”. One of my absolute favorite songs by her. You can listen here AFTER you read the article 😉 The first time I heard it, it struck...

A Fail-Proof Success Equation

In December, I decided I need a change of scenery. Work scenery. In order to make this happen, I would need to get my husband sold on the idea that he, too, wanted a change of work scenery so that we could switch home office spaces. I would probably have to give up my...

Sales Lessons from this Election Season

  NOTE: This piece was written on Election Day 2016. Due to the climate following the election results, I waited to release it until now. Regardless of your political affiliation, I hope you will openly receive the lessons and borrow my learning lens to use each...

My Valentine to You

A Transparent Letter

  Dear Friend, Last week kicked my booty. It legitimately put a whooping on my derrière and my spirit. First, let’s rewind. This year, I decided instead of making resolutions, I would determine a word that my year would be focused on. The word I chose was...

Leap of Failure or Fulfillment…Either Way

  For those of you who have been with me since the beginning, you know about my trip last April to see Oprah’s Super Soul Sessions. During my time there, I was particularly struck by the message Cheryl Strayed shared (listen to it here). There were so many...

Bringing Strategy Back

  You’ve probably heard the phrase “hire slow; fire fast.” No? Well, now you have. It’s a philosophy I subscribe to not only with hiring but also in overall business. I started noticing a trend in business, and it’s one that makes me want to go postal, just like...
