Is Life Throwing You a Curve Ball?

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”- Helen Keller When I feel like life is throwing me a curve ball I always remind myself about this quote and it helps me focus less on my own self pity. Instead of asking myself “why do I have all of this to deal with?” I ask, “What do I need to learn most from this experience?” View the situation like a butterfly’s situation and how it Read more…

Learn, Try, Stay and Care

Years ago, I read these words from Jim Rohn. I want to share them with you: Learn- what you don’t know will hurt you. You have to have learning to exist, let alone succeed. We learn by what we see, so pay attention. We learn by what we hear, so be a good listener. Try- you have to try something to see if you can do it. Try your best. Give it every effort.

She Reaches the Summit

I have had these words typed for 3 months but went into hiding as I felt naked posting them. But it’s time! I’m Freaking Doing IT!! . Triumphantly, she reaches the summit.

Plant Your Seeds – Building a Champion; You

Our outcomes are only as fine as the effort and consistency that you put into performing a task. We can choose to prepare for success or we can do things half a**ed and not prepare and execute a growth plan. Growth plans are crucial. I created a growth plan for my company in 2013 with the Goldman Sachs 10K Small Business program. Wow – that was an amazing experience. #GS10KSB Just as a farmer does Read more…

Do you suffer from ‘Yes-itis’?

Do you suffer from ‘Yes-itis’? I suffered from ‘yes-itis’ and realized after years of suffering with it, it was time to start saying ‘no‘. I was a mom that was continually being asked to be involved with different things: PTA president, Boy Scout leader, Girl Scout leader, Board positions, Committee positions and the list goes on and on. Several years ago I was saying yes to all of it. I loved helping out bit it Read more…

Plowing Through Your Fears

I haven’t really overcome any of my fears.. I just keep plowing thru them. I have continued on with implementing faith over my fears. I’ve heard the words Courage trumps fear and I am living proof that these 3 words are SO true!! I kept on with the courage and bravery and didn’t let anything stop me.  Every time I was strong with my resilience and faced my fear I achieved a sense of accomplishment- Read more…

Going to Battle Against Your Self-Doubt

My greatest pain over the last few years has been leaving my comfort zone.. When I finally managed to get out of that tight, warm, comfy place I felt so frightened, and I mean REALLY Frightened! And vulnerable! 10 years ago when I decided to escape my comfort zone I didn’t realize how fearsome and draining it could be and trust me there were many times I tried to run, actually race back to my Read more…
