Ep 88 Work-Life Balance

7/2/2020
I was recently in a Facebook group looking at women responding to the question - what is your biggest struggle with work, and overwhelmingly, the answers included work life balance and time management. Women trying to do it all and feeling overwhelmed - not being able to do what they want. Today I wanted to share a few ideas because I think this is such an important topic. Being able to control your time is everything to living the life you want. IN THIS...

Ep 87 What To Do If You are Feeling Stuck

6/25/2020
Episode Notes: I am so excited to share some new changes and talk a bit about how coaching can help if you are feeling stuck. The truth is - the discomfort of making changes in your life offers you the opportunity to feel more alive than ever - vs - staying stagnant in a life you just live day after day thinking there must be something more. Listen today to hear just some of the ways it has worked for me, and start thinking about what you would want if we could wave a magic wand and help...

EP 86 When You Have to Do It All

6/18/2020
Episode Notes: Todays topic stems from something that came up in a recent class with my group. I think a number of you will benefit from hearing my take on the idea that you have to do it all. I hear this sentence from clients regarding work, I hear this sentence from clients when speaking about home life, and I’ve even told myself this sentence for both work and home. Listen today to learn how that sentence - “I have to do it all” is a lie we tell ourselves and what you can choose to...

EP 84 Gratitude in Challenging Times

6/4/2020
NOTES: One thing I really have been reflecting on a lot recently is the idea of gratitude I don’t mean - pretend gratitude when you aren’t happy. I mean a true connection with gratitude - for the brain’s benefit - where you truly focus on what is important to you, and where you feel most prosperous. People who regularly practice gratitude, by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express...

Ep 83 Your Biggest Advocate

5/28/2020
EPISODE NOTES: I think you can agree - we love the feeling of accomplishment. You know - when you can check off the list of things to do. But let’s be honest - we just add more to the list, and keep taking action - going and going and going. If we don’t take a break it’s almost like we are someone one ice running in place and if you don’t stop you are going to start going backwards. For myself and for the women I work with, it’s easier to keep going, and keep doing for everyone else Vs...

Ep 82 The Importance of the Decisions You Make

5/21/2020
This is such a great topic. The decisions you make today will be the results you see tomorrow. You know something? Every decision is optional. What I mean is - everything in your life is a choice - even if it doesn’t feel like it. I can not tell you how important this statement is and how much it has changed my life. It was the quote on my nameplate from Brooke Castillo when I went through certified training with the Life Coach School, and I did not realize at the time how much my life...

The Story You Tell

4/30/2020
What story do you tell yourself every single day? I know my brain likes to go to things like - it’s not enough - your not doing enough - it will be better once I get “there” ... and accomplish ... (insert anything). Can you relate? The thing is -the option to tell yourself you are right where you need to be exists. The option to tell yourself you do - and have - exactly what is needed exists. It’s never better “there”. We take our brains with us wherever we go - and so the thoughts come...

I know a lot of folks are getting ansy We are not used to being with ourselves so much - or in our heads as much as we are now. Because of that, there has been a lot of buffering going on.

The Pursuit of Happiness Lie

3/26/2020
I think the idea of the pursuit of happiness - like all the time happy, happy, happy, - is such a lie. It’s one of those sneaky thoughts, that sounds good but can actually cause so much suffering. Today I want to offer you the idea of emotional balance. My master coach instructor Brooke Castillo says life is 50/50. Meaning, 50% of the time we feel positive, and 50% of the time life is meant to be negative, I almost wish we could take negative and positive out of it - because it’s really...

Visualizing Your Future Self

3/19/2020
Today I want to talk to you about visualizing your future - especially your future self. I think sometimes this can be a little challenging to know what that means. Sometimes we are like - Huh? I’m not sure what the future holds. I used to always think that. You know that question they ask you on the interview - where do you see yourself in 5 years? I used to be like - umm… not sure - hopefully still alive..lol. The thing is - a lot of us think life just happens to us. But that is not true...

Telling Others How Amazing You Are

3/12/2020
I was recently speaking with a colleague and she was talking about how she likes to stay behind the scenes. The conversation really got me thinking about how many women think this way. But the truth is, this line of thinking is not useful when we want to continue to improve ourselves and excel in our careers. One of my favorite quotes from Robin Arzon - Peloton Lady Boss “If it doesn’t increase my vibe or my bank account - Its a no”. This idea is what I want to talk to you about today -...

Gaining Clarity on Your Time

3/5/2020
Today I want to talk to you about how you see your time - or lack of it - or maybe you think you need better time management. I’m going to fill you in on a secret: time management is never your problem. The problem is not knowing your purpose, and not having clarity is. The problem is - everything you make up in your brain around time. We all have the same amount of time - but why can some people get more done in the morning, then others get done all day? I can tell you why: because each...
