Mindset: what if it isn’t all about beliefs?

I’ve had a lot of conversations with clients over the past couple weeks where they brought up the issue of their limiting beliefs and fears that keep coming up (even after they thought they *dealt* with them in the past). Sound familiar to you as well? I know it does to me, and believe me […]

Top 3 Myths About Resistance

I’ve seen and heard a lot of coaching B.S. over the years, but some of the most damaging “advice” or “coaching” I’ve witnessed stems from a few basic myths about resistance. Sure, there are times it’s fear-based, but out of the hundreds of business leaders, entrepreneurs, and employees I’ve worked with directly, the majority were […]

The ones you poo-poo are meant just for you…

Sometimes people will ask me: “How can I tell if this is guidance from my soul or intuition, or if I’m just making it up and seeing a connection that isn’t really there?” Have you ever wondered that yourself? I’ve often asked myself this same question and over the years I’ve come to notice a […]

Are you a Messy Mom (or Dad)?

This is a post I put on Facebook Monday and the response was overwhelming. Welcome to the first not-so-official #‎MessyMomMonday!

What if Today Were Your Last Day…

Next year he will be heading to middle school – I’m still trying to figure out how that happened so fast… Today I’ll be sitting at his graduation ceremony (yes, they do these things nowadays for elementary school!) and I’ll probably be crying. Hell, I […]

Tedx Lesson #2

When I first heard of Ted Talks I had a twinge of recognition. The second time I heard of them, from a client who had it on her bucket list to speak on a Ted stage, I felt the call even more deeply. When I bought my ticket to see TedxBend in 2014, I was […]

Tedx Lesson #1: An idea worth spreading is an idea worth surrendering to

One of the most powerful lessons I learned from my Tedx experience is how one idea can radically transform your life…if you allow it. When I applied to speak at TedxBend, I wanted to talk about the Inner Voice. I had been kicking around the idea for a couple years prior to that of applying […]

What Is Your New Year’s Revolution?

Resolutions seem so tired, worn-out. Over-used and under-fulfilled. Sometimes what is needed is a full-blown REVOLUTION*. Here are some ideas for you to consider in your own personal revolution: Stop doing everything that you hate doing. Especially the things you feel obligated to do. Here’s a radical bonus shot you can use to truly discern […]

The Truth About Debt

I had a powerful insight about debt recently. Not just financial debt – all debt. Of course it started with financial, but quickly I was shown all the other areas where debt occurs, and the same basic principle applied in all those areas too. The principle is this: Your debt is a direct reflection of […]
