Am I Running From Something Or To Something?

Life is interesting. As humans, we are constantly evolving (at least I hope we are! )...  And sometimes as we evolve, our interest in things that once ignited our passion dulls. Has this ever happened to you? Recently I've been wondering what else is out there.  Don't get me wrong, I love helping people learn [...]

Disappointment: Will It Define or Defeat You?

Several months ago I applied to speak at the national conference of NAWBO (National Assn. of Women Business Owners) being held in Minneapolis in October. I have all the qualifications, experience and topic that should have made the cut. I had incredible letters of recommendation from highly respected leaders (like Dr. Ivan Misner) who have [...]

Leadership is not something you DO…

Becoming a leader and leadership is talked about a lot. There are all sorts of tips, reports, checklists, etc., on how to become a leader. The main theme that all the content I've read about leadership agrees on is that leadership is not something you DO... it's something you BECOME. When you become a "leader", [...]

I Do Not Choose To Be Common…

This writing from the 1770's really touched me. I am hoping it touches you, too! I do not choose to be a common man, It is my right to be uncommon … if I can, I seek opportunity … not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen. Humbled and dulled by having [...]

It’s Confused Me For Years…

Branding... We hear about it and how important it is. But for me, knowing how to make branding happen for my business has been as elusive as... well, Big Foot and Nessy of Loch Ness! Do you feel that way, too? I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who is perplexed at how to [...]

When They Told Me To “Be Realistic”…

One of the hardest things we, entrepreneurs, do, is move forward and believe in ourselves when others don't. I don't know about you, but I never really fit into a "mold" that my friends could understand. While they were busy pursuing higher education and climbing a corporate ladder, I dreamed of having a bold message on [...]

We’re not who you think we are…

The struggle is real... the fears are real... the feelings of not being good enough are real. You probably look around at all the other people who speak to groups and think they have it all figured out. But it's an illusion. Most of the speakers and presenters I know still suffer with pangs of anxiety [...]
