    What makes a perfect 10?

    Have you ever watched the Olympics Gymnasts and thought about what exactly makes up a perfect 10 score?  The reason I’m asking this question is that while my spouse and I were on an early morning walk, we got to talking about this.  I was sharing with her how I was making a ton of progress finishing the new guide I’m writing – Soulful Marketing Manifesto.She was curious about it, mainly because a manifesto is a document that declares and shares a new vision, approach of a new marketing movement. It sounds kind of serious, right? 🙂 As I explained my manifesto to her, it reminded her of a talk…

    I Did Something a Little Crazy

    Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone and done something a little crazy, or maybe out of your ordinary routine, or stretched your beliefs? Well, that’s what I did last week. I bought a course for $6,000. Ummmm, yeah, a little out there for me cuz I’ve not ever spent that amount of money on a course before. I’ve spent upwards of $25k on a year-long mastermind, and I’ve also spent $5k for a 3-day weekend training. And, I’ve spent $12k a year to be in Brian Kurtz’s Masterclass, which was like a mastermind, where we met three times a year in person. (Yeah, before the pandemic.) Plus,…

    It’s Time to Make Peace With This…

    Being on this planet for 50+ years, I feel like I’ve done a lot, seen a lot, and experienced a lot. Yet other times, I feel like such a newbie. Do you ever have that feeling? When it comes to Thanksgiving, several things come to mind. I mean, I have seen my fair share of this holiday. Yet, why must I do the same thing every year? Hmmmm it got me thinking… In fact, on my walk today, I was reminiscing about my favorite Thanksgiving – the one right after my 12-year relationship ended and Debbie Phillips (Founder WomenOnFire.com) and Rob Berkley invited me to spend the holiday in Martha’s…

    Time keeps on Ticking, Ticking, Ticking Into the Future…

    If you’re anywhere near my age group, you’re gonna recognize the lyrics I ripped my headline off from – and just to refresh your memory – the real lyrics are “Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future… the song was “Fly Like An Eagle” by The Steve Miller Band. Why in the world am I starting off with some crazy lyrics from the 1970s? (By the way, I was only a mere middle school child then.) The reason is, (gasp) we have less than seven weeks before this year is done, complete, finished – over. That’s why I want to ask – what can you (or if you…

    Journey into the Human Psyche (Part 1)

    Have you ever had a moment where you read something, watched something, or maybe a friend told you about something that totally grabbed your curiosity, and you had to dig deeper to discover more? Well, that’s where I’ve been these past several days… Ever since I started reading the True Believer by Eric Hoffer, this journey into the human psyche has really got me incredibly curious. The fun part is my spouse Ally is just as fascinated by the human psyche. Usually, before she heads off to the hospital, we always have our coffee and talk. Lately, we’ve been reading aloud from True Believer and having some insightful conversations. (I do love being with…

    When you find your head spinning…

    I remember when I first started my own business fifteen years ago, and I was torn in SO MANY directions. It was a bit nutty. And I was a bit of a mess. The stress level was pretty much through the roof, and I was pretty exhausted. There’s so much to do when you start a business. Questions like – Do I register with the Federal government and get a federal ID# (This is what you need to do in the states) or just be a solopreneur. How do I get new clients? Or how do I sell my stuff and make money fast? It’s quite endless. Then there was…

    Dear Future Self – What a Year 2020 was – yikes!

    Another holiday season almost under the belt – yay! This feels like it’s been the longest year ever. I still can’t believe I’ve been home in my office for nine months.  That’s not ever happened before. Usually, I’m off traveling to meet clients, attend a mastermind, an event, or visit my mom. I’m sure you can relate. So, I was home long enough to put together a gingerbread type house for the holidays. Instead of gingerbread, it was made with Oreo cookies and fluffy white icing.  I’ve not ever tried to do one of these before. And when you check out my picture, you will know why! I’m not sure…

    Lessons In Being Grateful

    One of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life was to walk away from corporate America. To be honest, it was corporate America that walked away from me first.  So what happened? The company I had put my life into for over ten years decided to make my Director of Corporate Communications position redundant. So I was floundering around for almost a year trying to get another job in a company because that’s what I was SUPPOSED to do.  Working for myself was out of the question. I needed to have that big paycheck and health insurance. It was 2005. I was in a relationship. We had a child…

    5 Must-Have Tools for Successful Entrepreneurs

    During these bizarre times of COVID-19, I started looking at all the tools I use that help me be more successful (and productive), it really only boiled down to 5. I thought it might be helpful to share them with you, especially because all these tools just happen to be tech tools. And a lot of us are now confined to working from home, with the exception of me, I’ve always worked from home since I own my own business. (And FYI – I’m a Mac person – former PC user.) And hopefully, you know some of these, if not all of them, and maybe even using some! 1) Evernote…

    The Productivity Secret That Will Change Your Life

    One of the things I’m constantly struggling with: my plate is incredibly full. I just have way TOO many things on that proverbial plate and it’s constantly weighing me down. I’m a Strategic Marketer & Product Launch Manager, I help people get things done, and here I am, revealing to you my own challenges with getting things done.  Well, I’ve actually invested good money with experts to help me “organize” my office, my computer, and my life, as well as I got a new desk, bookshelves, and on an on. The interesting thing is after that expert gave me this “system” it wasn’t mine. So I had great difficulty in…
