Women’s Stories Matter—To All Of Us

Posted October 23rd, 2019

Something happened for me at my SheSpeaks evenings of women’s storytelling last year. I didn’t see it coming, but once I did, I saw how it had been there all along. If you’re not familiar with SheSpeaks, then you might not know that this annual event has become something of a tradition for many women—a heaping dose of good mojo, heartfelt energy, and inspiration delivered […]

Power: Pure And Simple

Posted October 11th, 2019

I have this dream, and it begins with changing the language we use as women to describe ourselves—or any people, really, outside the construct of the white male narrative we’re all living in. I have this dream about the word “empowerment” fading to obsolescence…. Instead of reading articles, seeing conferences and discovering entire organizations framed around “empowering” or “empowerment”, they would simply be about our […]

The Stories You Might Have Missed—Or Want Again

Posted May 30th, 2019

Last year, on the underground of London, I saw something that made me stop in my tracks. When the doors opened to Euston station, there it was….the EXACT reason I hold my SheSpeaks women’s storytelling series each year. And then, as quickly as it registered in my brain, the doors shut and we were off—in the underground again. I’ll never forget that moment as long […]

Getting Naked With My Truth

Posted May 18th, 2019

There are days I am convinced my entire life is strung together with a series of movie clips and soundtracks—connecting the bits of insights and moments of clarity in such a way that they literally reveal the breadcrumbs that have moved me forward. That was the case the other morning when I woke up with Cher’s voice in my head yelling “SNAP OUT OF IT”. […]

5 Antidotes For A Rugged April

Posted April 29th, 2019

April seems to have had its way with women this month and was a particularly rugged patch of road to navigate for many—emotionally, physically and spiritually. Limits were tested. Patience wore thin. Bodies were sick and tired. Ugly and rude behaviors surfaced with more frequency. And hope was spotty and threadbare in places. For some, a logistical shit storm hit hard, and time wasn’t our […]

What a 16-year-old girl and fishing for marlins reminded me

Posted April 3rd, 2019

“Our house is on fire”, She said quite plainly.  That was Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who spoke to hundreds of world leaders at Davos back in January of this year. She then went on to say that now was the time for us to speak clearly, and that’s when she really let it rip: “Adults keep saying ‘we owe it to the […]

What She Said

Posted March 12th, 2019

What if I were to call you a storyteller…how would you respond? Would you agree or would you start Yea-Butting me? Yea, but not a good one. Yea, but it’s not like I’m a REAL storyteller. Yea, but it’s not like I know what I’m doing. Yea, but it’s not really about anything important. Yea, but it’s not like anyone wants to hear what I […]
