    The Ripple Affect

    Have you ever had a seemingly small interaction that simply left an impact on you? A few weeks ago, at the United Club in the San Francisco airport, I ran into the chef who creates the recipes for the club’s food.  Despite being in a hurry, I took a moment to share with him how much I liked their new breakfast spread of cold-soaked oatmeal with fresh fruit and other healthier alternatives. His face lit up, and we had this wonderful connection over a shared love of cold-soaked oatmeal. Then he shared his favorite cold oatmeal recipes (if I wanted to try them at home) and how he likes to…

    Authentic Curiosity & The Beginner’s Mind: Embracing A Soulful Marketing Approach

    I want to share with you something that’s more than just a concept. It’s a transformative approach in the marketing world – it’s about embracing authentic curiosity and the beginner’s mind, especially when it comes to Soulful Marketing.  This is about diving into what makes your marketing genuinely resonate and connect with your dream clients on a deeper level. Have you ever attended a workshop or event, and the speaker got up there and started talking about a topic, and your mind immediately shut down and didn’t pay attention to the rest of the presentation? This used to happen to me. The more experience I accrued in marketing, my mind…

I decided that this year, I would dig deep into the well of my experience and learning. I will pull out all the stops to inspire, encourage, and propel you to success, whatever that looks like for you. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure of what it will all look like over the next 12 months. I can promise you that it will be the most valuable stuff I’ve delivered to date.

    Make Every Moment Count

    What are you thinking right now? Are you here and present with me? Or is your mind somewhere else? Maybe you’re thinking about your holiday to-do list or your action list of what needs to be done before the New Year. It is so easy to get sucked into the “busyness of life.” Especially during the holidays when emotions and stress are high, and family is involved. So how can this holiday be different? For me, it’s working hard on not getting sucked into being attached to the outcome. It’s also about staying flexible in the moment and going with the flow. And making every moment count, especially the little…

    Do You Measure the Gap?

    Something that’s been ingrained in me from my dad and my mentors has always been setting my goals for the year. The one thing that always tripped me up was how I measured my success. I always did that based on the goals I accomplished. Often, I found myself being perpetually dissatisfied with my progress because I wasn’t accomplishing all of them. Some of my goals just felt so big and too far away to achieve them. What I didn’t understand is that the problem wasn’t in my success at achieving the goals. The problem was how I measured them. The challenge is that you can be so busy looking at…

    Rampage of Gratefulness, Appreciation & Blue-Skying

    Today in the U.S., we’re celebrating Thanksgiving. I love this time of year when friends and family get together to share a meal (or a feast), gratitude, and connection with each other. This leads me to my fascinating adventure of this past week, where the topic was “the future of possibility.” It came up more than 3 times this past week. And as the Universe works in mysterious ways, none of them were planned… The first was a class about “Choices” that I talked about earlier in the month, where the topic was imagining a future choice I wanted to make. For me, it was about finishing my book. It…

    Have you ever mapped out your business and life choices?

    I’m currently in a 6 week inspiring and thought-provoking class taught by my good friend Kim DeYoung. The class is called “Choice Confident.” She teaches you how to use questions to map out all the important choices in your life, which she calls “Choice Mapping.” This is based on her book – The Book Of Choice: Mapping the Life You Want by Understanding the Life You Have. The class and her book are fascinating tools. She puts your choices into three categories: Proactive, Professional, and Personal Choices. Last night, we talked about professional choices – specifically work relationship choices. (You can also map out past, present, and future choices too.) All the questions…

    Getting That Phone Call That Might Scare You!

    Have you ever had a day when you’re at your desk and really engaged with what you’re working on, and then it happens – your mobile phone rings? And if you’re like me with my somewhat loud ring, it scares the bejeezus out of me! And yep, just in time for Halloween – muahahaha. (Yeah, I know I ought to change that ring, but I just love that song…) Once I’m composed, I grab the phone to see who’s calling while that voice in my head says, “Oh my goodness, I hope no one’s died?” When I recognize the caller as a client, that voice inside my head starts…“Oh no, did…

    The Value of Having Another Perspective

    Before I get into today’s topic, I wanted to clarify something from a reader about last week’s blog, “Taming Your Brain.” I had mentioned that if I hadn’t been meditating for many years, I wouldn’t have been able to recognize or be aware of my thoughts to start changing them and taming my mind. The beauty of this is – that it was MY PROCESS. It took me a long time because of ALL the things I let get in my way, like my issues with alcohol, stopping meditating for a while, and more. Then in the past six years of being in recovery, and now my addiction to learning…

    What do you do as a business owner when …

    It’s been a week since all of the supreme court rulings, and since then, I’ve done some research. I was curious about how other businesses, influencers, and organizations would handle the information or if they would simply stay silent. This leads me to ask you… What do you do as a business owner when something happens in the world that affects you personally or your business? Do you say something? Before I get to that, you need to know that what’s trending in business is that people are more apt to buy from a brand that shares their values. This is good, especially if you’re running a service business like…

    It’s a Lil Difficult Sometimes…

    I so struggled a bit this week about what to write… (Highly unusual for me.) On the one hand, this is a marketing and launch weekly email where I focus on Marketing, Mindset, and Message. Yet, when the Supreme Court hands down a ruling to take away one of our Constitutional rights, it weighed heavier on me than I realized. it’s hard not to say something about it… AND, I also don’t want to make this into a pulpit for something that could be a hotbed of controversy, which is not what I’m about either… that’s not what you signed up for. How about I compromise… Let’s talk about a…
