Veterans and Memorial Day have significant meaning for me because they remind me of my Father's service to his country and that I miss him terribly. My Dad fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars and received several medals of honor including a Purple Heart for being one of the estimated 351,794 men and women who were wounded or killed in that war. I'm so grateful he made it home and was able to share his life and life's lessons with me up until he left us in 2012.

I had the distinct honor and privilege of giving a TEDx talk this past February. While prepping for my talk taught me so much, that's the not the focus of this particular blog post.
The idea of TED talks is to bring forth "an idea worth sharing," and with that charge all I could think to share was the challenge of fit versus belonging.
You see, I spent almost 50 years of my life trying to live up to societal and other's expectations of me. Trying to be what I thought others wanted,...
Wouldn't life be a lot more interesting and rewarding if you could just be a little more fearless? Easier said than done, right?
The alternative, however, is staying in your comfort zone which may be limiting, or even strangling your life. So, how can you work to overcome fear, step out of your comfort zone and live your best life?
Let me assure you that there's a brave and bolder person lurking inside of you, and all you need to is bring her out to play. As I always say, "confidence is...
Do you have a clear vision of where you're heading with your life, career or business? Are things you've been wanting to do, accomplish, start, master, acquire or achieve? If you've struggled year after year in meeting your stated objectives, my guess is you've not done a vision board.
If there’s one thing that keeps people stuck, it’s a lack of clarity.
Want to quit your soul sucking day job in favor of the freedom of self-employment, but you...
You ever notice how the week between Christmas and New Year is relatively quiet and peaceful?
I love this time because it gives me space to reflect on the current year and set my intentions for the new year to come.
In so many ways 2018 was a life-changing year for me personally and in my business.
With regard to my business I gained greater clarity and focus, reached some epic revenue goals, and grew Team CPW by two. So as I look back over the year, while I didn't hit...
“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”—Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man
Are you stuck in work that's unfulfilling, or at worst soul-sucking? Have you been staring at the Starbuck's Barista thinking, "I should just quit and work here?"
Or are you a "rationalizer." You know, one of those people who tells herself that work is called “work” for a reason. That you should be grateful to have job. You also rationalize the fact that you're good at what you do,...
I have a question for you. Are you being yourself in all situations?
If you’re like most people, you’re 90% yourself when you’re with close friends, 50% yourself with casual acquaintances, and hide yourself from strangers.
Because being your true self in all settings and situations is scary. It requires vulnerability, transparency and integrity. It opens you up for judgement from others. As much as we may say or think we don't care, we are pack animals and...
When we grow up we tend to get told that the world is the way that it is and that our life should go as follows...go to school and get good grades, go to college, get a nice job, get married, have kids, save a little money to retire etc... I call BS!
Life doesn't have to be this way. We don't need to stick to the status quo of a universal plan. We can write our on lives, our on path. Instead of going through the motions of being lost and confused about what we want to do in life, let's take...
Have you heard of the Japanese concept called "Ikigai?" Translated it means "the reason for being" or as we like to say...your purpose.
It's believed that when you discover your ikigai you'll find your purpose in life. I learned about this concept in the context of discovering my own gifts and how best to serve my clients by ensuring that I'm not only giving them what they need, but doing what I love. More importantly I learned the questions to ask to gain that clarity.
