You might be stealing from the people who need you most.

That one got your attention, right? And I say it because it’s true. But that’s not my quote. It’s from a woman dedicated to helping you have a business and a life you love. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Marie Forleo, a dear friend of mine who Oprah dubbed a thought leader for theContinue Reading

Put down the flail.

Right before the holidays I made a few financial decisions that I wish I hadn’t made. Nothing catastrophic. Just some money that went places I wish it hadn’t, in retrospect. It’s made for a tighter start of 2013 than I prefer. Confession: I’ve been beating myself up about it for weeks. While traveling in CostaContinue Reading

The other day I heard a woman say that escaping her life every weekend to her mountain home was what was getting her through.

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.
