What does it Say About You?

Your brand has a story. You are a part of that story. The days of hiding behind the corporate ladder are no longer. Everyone is watching. Even if you are an employee, an intern, or just a temp. You represent the company you work for. With your LinkedIn profile, and your name tag, and your […]

The Edges of Your Beliefs

We live in a world of edges. An unexamined life, is worth examining. The edges are here for us to explore. Not for us to avoid. Right — Left Good — Evil Easy — Difficult Give — Take Real — Fake New — Traditional Fast — Slow Cheap — Expensive Pleasant — Offensive Innovative — Proven Risky — Safe However, exploring these edges is not recommended if we’re looking for approval. We’re not encouraged to explore beyond […]

They Want (You) to Be Awesome

You want to know how to attract the best talent? Here’s a newsflash: Millennials are no different than the Baby Boomers, Gen X or Gen Y’s youth of yesterday.   No, the difference is in the world they are living in — the world we created for them. We all wanted to matter, but we were just cogs in the wheel, […]

Everything is Figureoutable

  I originally heard this from Marie Forleo. It wasn’t something that I questioned, as much as I felt a connection to the message. Intuitively, I have always believed that if someone wants to figure something out, she can. When I was listening to Marie share this belief, I found myself thinking: Yes. I absolutely agree. […]

You are Not a Fake.

In March of this year (2017), […]

The Thing Holding You Back

I was thinking about the things I want to accomplish in the next 5 years. Growing my business, and developing my skills so that I can begin to spread my message to a wider audience. I believe I have the ability, I know I have the passion, but there is one thing holding me back. I […]

The Happiest Person I Know

My Aunt, Elena. Anyone who knows her has learned something from her — that love is the most endearing gift ever given to man (and woman). When I was a teenager, I got into trouble. I was sent to live with Elena and my uncle Willy, who is also another loving soul. They are both so blessed, and […]

Invite Yourself

Invite Yourself When you are considering the work others are doing, you may find yourself feeling left out. I remember that feeling well. Early on in my entrepreneurial career, I saw myself as “on the outside, looking in.” And feeling a little left out. I never considered that this was my choice, until one day, I […]
