Administrative Support for Entrepreneurs

My passion to support entrepreneurs, and especially those of the female persuasion has been evolving since I first became an entrepreneur myself. Today I see so much potential for entrepreneurs to take on some of our most compelling challenges. Entrepreneurs solve problems – and in so doing, create wealth and abundance in the lives of those whose problems get solved, as well as for themselves. That’s why administrative support is so important. Though we often feel like we must do …

What Makes Us Who We Are?

We took a road trip last week to Chattanooga so that I could be with a client for a VIP Strategy Session (one of my favorite ways for rising up!) During the drive, we were listening to Krista Tippett narrating her book “Becoming Wise.” Her voice rings so true; her words are gorgeous. I love what she says about where we are as humans, and what how we can be rising up during these particularly challenging times. There was a zinger-moment, too, …

Dragonflies and Being Present

Sometimes things get so busy. Like now, for example. There are dozens of competing priorities, and endless creative and exciting endeavors in which to devote my precious time. I’ve been even more conscious lately of how often I’m rushing through things. Though I appreciate so much about my life and the way I have created it, I get that being present is still a challenge for me. It’s one reason I’m so grateful for my friend Liane. Her free spirit …

Butterflies Kinda’ Rule

It is my deep pleasure to introduce you to my dear friend Maria Font. She’s a crazy talented photographer, writer, artist, and life-lover. We met in the virtual world during a writing challenge, and connected instantly and on purpose. She has inspired me often and in so many ways. I admire her sense of adventure, as she’s not afraid to explore the edges with enthusiasm and vigor. I watch her living a life she loves, always seeking something new to …

The Art of Celebration

I’ve been celebrating my birthday all month long, and if you’re a regular reader — you know I’ve been doing this for the past several years. Because celebrating is fun, and because we get to make it all up, I’ve made my life up to be about celebration. I’ve been deeply committed to doing something fun every day this month; whether it’s spending time with friends or day-dreaming or shopping or reading — plus a myriad of other fun activities. I’ve …

When Do You Say No?

For every YES you’ve ever said, there existed the possibility to say NO. I know darling — sometimes it doesn’t feel like a choice. And it always is. Maybe the consequences of saying no weren’t appealing, and yet, it’s still a choice to say yes or no. Every day I say yes to lots of things — and I’m committed to saying no at least as often. Because NO is perhaps one of the most powerful words in my vernacular. …

Bad News is Seductive

What a difference intention makes! Last week I decided to take a hiatus from Facebook and bad news feeds — and it has been lovely! I’m once again grounded in loving energy, and my light is shining brighter than ever. If you google ‘good news’ there is a plethora of hits reporting positive stories that are just as credible as mainstream media’s focus on fear mongering and dastardly deeds. Here are a few that rocked my world, from Rob Brezsny’s weekly …

We Don’t Need to Fight to Unite

My new friend, Frank Gjata, founder of Conscious Ink and creator extraordinaire calls himself a Bliss Activist. For obvious reasons, as a Love Activist, I loved him immediately. Recently, he was inspired to produce a new project, by so doing, inspiring ME. It’s a video/short film “remake” of Charlie Chaplin’s inspiring speech from “The Great Dictator”, in which he made an impassioned plea for justice, racial equality, peace, and freedom. In its various forms, his speech has been viewed in the …

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 …
