Undeniable Perspective

Posted May 6th, 2016

I posted this video on my SheChanges Facebook page yesterday as a nod to my mother who celebrated her 77th birthday this week. I am who I am because of her, and yet — as the video below reveals — our stories around moving into motherhood while working in the workplace are disturbingly similar, despite being separated by 37 years (my mom’s first child being born in 1965 […]

What My Dog Is Teaching Me

Posted April 27th, 2016


One of the things that surprised me most in writing my book was the frequency with which I referenced dog stories in its pages. Time and time again as I was writing it, I would be grasping for a visual to describe what something felt like and — BOOM! — in would pop a story about Polly, Durango, Milo, or Max. Living with a dog, it […]

Do you have a minute? (sure you do.) Do you wanna play? (it’s okay if you’ve forgotten how…) You’re not alone. This TED talk by Shonda Rhimes has just moved into the top slot of my all-time favorite TEDs (sorry Liz and Brene…). I think I held my breath the whole time I watched it just now…she just spoke so directly to my soul, I didn’t […]

I made a startling realization the other day. One that actually made me say “whoopsie” out loud – and had me kicking myself for letting it happen on my watch. The realization? I had inadvertently made the amount of money I earn the sole measure my worth. Whoopsie. And wtf! I knew better than that, yet there I was – caught red-handed with my own realization. It’s not surprising […]

Inhale and Exhale

I’ve been reading like crazy these days. I usually have a couple of books going at a time — one fiction and one non-fiction. But lately I’ve been all about the non-fiction. It began in with Red, Hot & Holy by Sera Beak and The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, and then really kicked up a notch with Find A Way by Diana Nyad. It […]

I recently listened to a podcast where Seth Godin was being interviewed about being a writer. I heard him say something that made my whole body vibrate with resonance. When asked to describe his work in the world, he responded: “I notice things for a living…and I try very hard to be aware of my narrative.” Happy sigh. I do too, Seth. I notice things constantly.

Do you want to find out?

Posted April 1st, 2016


If the coaching police suddenly descended upon my universe and insisted that I was only allowed one question to use in my practice — no, let’s be more dramatic…only one question in my LIFE — this would be it: Do you want to find out? From where I sit this question is where the rubber meets the road. This is the question that starts my engine […]
