This will heal the economy.

On January 31st I co-hosted an event that absolutely blew the roof off of my expectations here in Portland, ME as part of a ten-city tour for the Thank You Small Business campaign. I’m not telling you this to toot my own horn. I’m tell you this to toot the horn of someone who’s veryContinue Reading

this is for your inner child…seriously

I’m so excited to share my mom’s newest book and her first book written for children, Beautiful Girl: Celebrating the Wonders of Your Body. This book is designed for little girls to learn how magical and perfect their bodies are. And it’s also designed for women of all ages to be reminded. At some point withinContinue Reading

Sometimes we have to break our own rules.

I’m trying something new this year. Instead of making a whole long list of goals that usually morphs into what feels like a to do list, I’m picking a word for the year. This year my word is GRACE. A quick story of GRACE that happened a few weeks ago: I was asked to beContinue Reading

Going in.

I don’t know about you but for the past week and a half or so I’ve felt harried. Rushed. Frazzled. Spazzy. And a little fried. It’s felt like I’m on a speeding train hurtling towards the end of 2012 and not only am I not in control of it, no one is! Ever felt thatContinue Reading

Somebody wants what you have.

Right now, someone in the world envies you. They admire your business. They covet your wardrobe. They lust after your husband. To someone somewhere you look like you have it all. Your website makes their mouth water. Your pictures on Facebook make them yearn for adventure in their life. Seeing you makes them crave more.Continue Reading

What is Your Soul Craving?

Very hot shoes and ambitious women surrounded me. Despite my persistently itchy derrière caused by my choice of hosiery that day, I sat in rapt attention. The mistress of ceremonies, Marie Forleo, held forth from stage at Donna Karan’s sacredly luxurious Urban Zen center. Marie gave us an assignment for that night: write a “paintedContinue Reading

What Does “Skinny” Mean to You?

A few weeks ago my friend Patricia Moreno, author of The IntenSati Method: The Seven Secret Principles to Thinner Peace, and I decided to collaborate on something just for fun. We decided to keep it simple – a one hour tele-class where we could have an in depth conversation with one another about health andContinue Reading

Sometimes you just can’t. So don’t.

There are times for renovations and there are times for relishing your home, your container, for all that it is right now. Of course you may still dream of new sconces, throws, or even tearing down a wall or two, but for the time being you’re loving where you live. When it comes to workingContinue Reading

Warts And All

The other night I had a “spiritual nightcap” with Robert Holden, author of the bestseller Happiness NOW, among others. Beyond his incredibly charming British accent and unassuming sense of humor, I was struck by something he said:  He’s about SELF-ACCEPTANCE as opposed to SELF-IMPROVEMENT. As those words came out of his mouth I could feelContinue Reading

Let Your Freak Flag Fly

I just returned from Portland, OR to Portland, ME. (Despite my home town often being referred to as the “other” Portland, the Oregonians named their fair city after us.) I very enthusiastically attended the World Domination Summit (WDS), author and traveler Chris Guillebeau’s annual conference for bloggers, travelers, change-makers, and others who dub themselves non-conformists.Continue Reading
