Earlier this week I felt like crying. Truth be told, it wasn’t just a moment of feeling – it was actually two entire days of wanting to cry. The sky was crying on both of these days, with intermittent rain and clouds that were gray and swollen with precipitation wanting to fall to the ground. But me? I wasn’t allowed to rain. Because I had […]

Food For Thought: Your Worth

This is the latest in a video series I’m calling “Food for Thought”, where I explore a topic that seems to be really present and relevant among the women I know – which includes me. Since posting this video on my YouTube Channel last week and hearing how it’s resonated with women in the SheChanges community, it seems like it’s a timely topic – one […]

I am always so grateful when a period of intense introspection is rewarded by a sudden burst of inspiration. Argh…BOOM! Ahhhhh…. YES! It so good to get to the other side after walking over hot coals (which to be clear, means having myself sit still, “do” nothing, blow shit off, let the house look like a bomb went off in it, make space, get silent, […]

I went to a dance class earlier this week. I wasn’t supposed to. I was supposed to be working – you know, being productive – but for whatever reason I had an invitation from my friend land right into a patch of open time. And I couldn’t say no, even though I felt like I should. That invitation felt like a delicious cocktail of divine […]

I’ve never been a huge fan of Tom Petty, but maybe he had a point with this one…because in my book – and from what I see daily in  my clients’ worlds – the waiting IS most definitely the hardest part. You know what I’m talking about, right? You’ve made the ask. You’ve set the intention. You’ve said yes to the calling.You’ve cracked yourself – […]

Contributing A Verse

Contribute a verse

Four weeks ago, I sat in a stale-smelling, artificially-lit waiting area of Maine Medical center. It was 6:30 am and my first-born child had just been wheeled into surgery. First child. First surgery. I was told – first patently, then patronizingly – that I had “no reason” to worry. The arrogant and emotionally-stunted – albeit brilliant, or so I was told repeatedly – surgeon insisted […]

Actively Disrupting Normal

Posted August 7th, 2014


If I had a file folder in my office labeled “BIG DOINS” it would be bursting at the seams right about now. Whitney Johnson calls what I’m doing “disrupting myself”. That sounds about right. I first heard her own disruption story at Business Innovation Factory’s annual summit (#BIF7) and something about her strategic and systematic approach to creating change resonated with me. It was brave […]
