Wear Red Shoes

There are so many reasons to be sad. Pissed off, even. Yep, people are hurting. It would be easy to focus on the rage that’s most definitely in the lives of those around us — even in ourselves sometimes. As always, the news reports are consumed with stories that lodge fear squarely in our hearts. If we allow it. And it’s so easy to allow it, isn’t it? I shake my head in wonder at what the next news cycle …

Will You Help This Blogpost Go Viral?

I was challenged to write a blogpost that would have the potential to be shared and re-shared enough to go viral. Often, I’ll write a blogpost about what’s on my heart, without really giving a great amount of attention to who reads it, or how much it gets shared. This probably isn’t a great plan, right? So when the challenge came, I stepped up to the plate and said YES. Yes, I will write a blogpost with the intention of …

Ideas & Execution

It’s common for entrepreneurs to be long on ideas and short on execution. That’s why I created a service called VIP Strategy Session. Recently, a client and I spent the day at my friend’s lake cottage. Amidst the lovely summer sounds of creaking frogs and singing birds — with fish jumping and frolicking in the warm lake water, she and I got busy creating her dream fulfillment strategy. She came to play with so many ideas, and her main goal …

Doing Work You Love

Why is doing work you love important? Because your work is your calling. I know, darlings. I make it sound so easy. While it isn’t easy to discover your deepest calling, it’s worth every drop of blood, tears and frustration it takes. I know this from my own experience. I spent the first 45 years of my life wandering into one job or another, always excelling and always becoming bored or disenchanted at some point. And then I would jump …

Adopting a Wealth Mindset

Yesterday, I facilitated another live online community session, which I’ve aptly named “Insight Cafe.” It’s where members of the Entrepreneur Gold Community come together in a workshop setting, to learn and integrate new ideas and insights into their business and personal development. I believe there is nothing more valuable than adopting a healthy mindset within which a person creates the shape of their life. Our topic yesterday was focused on the differences between how “rich people” think, and how “average …

Passionate Action Trumps Fear

Hello love-chop, You read it right: passionate action trumps fear. I'm about to show you how. There are so many things to be afraid of in my world, as it spins in the direction of change. Let me indulge you for a moment while I list the areas of my life that are in flux. 1. Soulful Spring Cleaning is launching in a few days, with fewer people than I expected (There's still time to get registered if you're ready). ...

Opening Space for New Beginnings

I’ve been involved in developing a new project, The CoQuora Project for the past several months, which is launching this month. David Firth and I have never been more inspired by our work, and each day when we speak, the movement and our ideas about it grow new and stronger roots. We agree that though we have built a solid business plan, springing from powerful ideas and an urgent need by the people we serve...that there is something that wants ...

Soulful Spring Cleaning: What is Possible For You?

I love this time of year in the midwest, as winter takes its last breath in giant heaves. As the sun-warmed air invites me to open the windows, or take a long walk -- it's also an invitation to clear the clutter. It's a Spring Cleaning invitation that lets more light in. You know what it feels like, don't you? When I take the time to consider the things I'm holding onto, that perhaps no longer fit in with my ...

The Illusion of Separation

Even though we feel so separate, it's an illusion. In our commitment to being right -- in our habit of black and white thinking where something is good or something is bad, we perpetuate the false idea that we are somehow apart. All of religion teaches this concept of oneness. Quantum Science proves it with scientific data. And still we resist the truth of it, as though we somehow are safer if we're separate. Separation IS an illusion. “And one ...

Open Hearts and Politics: What Can You Do?

My Facebook feed is filled with politically polarizing diatribes, so much so, that I find myself imagining moving to Canada or some tropical island until the US presidential election is over. I know it’s not a good answer for what’s really bothering me. And I'm on a mission to open hearts. It hurts my heart to see so many people succumb to desperation…people who want to see our country “become great again.” The disconnection from source. The disillusionment. The belief ...
