Thanks to those of you who have been along for the journey since the very beginning! In challenges times, we still can have great outcomes. We get them when… Continue reading Beware of the Silent Slide
New Year’s Obsession
I offer free one-hour complimentary sessions before people enroll in my one-on-one coaching. About six months ago I was talking with a young mortgage officer. He was hungry, working hard, and had a desire to succeed. He was working extreme hours and his girlfriend made him take a few hours a week off of work… Continue reading New Year’s Obsession
Pollyanna Has A Problem
A positive mental attitude will get you through everything, right? Who is excited about their 2020 goals?! I know I sure am! Ready to level up, serve more, and achieve things I've never had on my radar before. I hope you are too.

Quitting Is Not An Option – Failure Is
I had gone to a panel discussion on failure last month at part of the Twin Cities Start Up Week. The panelists shared their thoughts on how to navigate failure and the mindset to have around it. What usually showed up as failure ended up being an opportunity to something better down the road. As… Continue reading Quitting Is Not An Option – Failure Is
Happy New Year Moms!
Did anyone else do a countdown this year?!?! Just me?!?! No, I'm not crazy - I realize January 2020 is still four solid months out.

Defense Wins Championships, But Offense Wins Business
If you’re like anyone else in business, you face some competition. If you aren’t ready for it you might want to consider getting out of the ring. That being said, it’s important to stop focusing on what competition is doing and run your race. Play more offense instead of defense. This is kinda funny, but… Continue reading Defense Wins Championships, But Offense Wins Business
Why Rent Your Success When You Can Own?
When I was 18-24 years old, I sold books. An incredible experience I wouldn't change for the world. There were many things we all learned in that business bootcamp. That a positive mental attitude can make or break you. Things like, "your schedule is your lifeline." And one mantra that was taught to us is… Continue reading Why Rent Your Success When You Can Own?
You Can Be Independent, But Not Alone
My greatest fear is being alone. Coming up a close second (after the welfare of my family, of course) is giving up control of my life. I've been in complete control over my career, work hours, income, and destiny for 20 years! The last time I had been an employee was when I interned at… Continue reading You Can Be Independent, But Not Alone
My Shit Stinks and It Isn’t Together
I have to address the fact that my husband will be thoroughly annoyed with this title, but it's not wrong. It's not the most professional, either. But accurate. I've built a reputation of having my shit together. I mean, my whole job is helping people get clear on what they want, figure out what tools… Continue reading My Shit Stinks and It Isn’t Together
