“I don’t just want to stop being an employee, she volunteered. I want to stop being a witch.”
That’s what a new client said as we discussed what she wanted to do with her future. She has given me permission to share her comment but I am sure she is really saying what many people are thinking.
You see, when you are in a soul sucking job; one with a toxic environment, or a boss who is a narcissist or maybe one that makes you feel like someone you hardly recognize, it’s likely you…Continue
It doesn't matter if you're a cop, EMT, firefighter, or a soldier. There may come a time when an injury, a boss, or the bureaucracy try to force you out. They may very well do it, too.

How wide open are you with your business and your numbers? How wide open do you need to be?
I just finished up an awesomely productive three days with Ryan McRae of ADHD Nerd. I profiled him recently in one of my Success Stories. We worked on a lot of things. I kept him on track a little and helped him escape to the Hot Chocolatier…Continue

It is estimated that 68.8% of American adults are overweight or obese. More than 80% of American households carry some sort of debt. Approximately 56% of American adults are addicted to social media. Those numbers should be alarming but they pale in comparison to another number that doesn't get much attention—84%. What is it that 84% of Americans plan to do this year?…Continue
I need your help with a project I’m working on. My book Rapid Skill Development 101 was published several years ago. The book hit several best-seller categories on Amazon, such as education and psychology, but it’s in need of updating.
Since the book came out I’ve had a few of the readers send me their stories after using it, but I would like to add more for a bigger and more helpful expanded edition. I’m also planning on adding examples of other careers that I’ve had coaching clients…Continue

Last August a close friend and colleague of my husband’s stopped by and wanted me to look at his bloodwork and give him my thoughts. He said he thought the doctor would tell him his cholesterol was too high. When I looked at his…Continue

Most do not realize or recognize that the highest of these is spiritual; intellectual is higher than physical and spiritual is higher than intellectual.

I spend a considerable amount of time on this blog talking about how God uses our creations to draw attention to Himself. He uses us to create things that draw people to Him, so to speak. I know this is somewhat flawed but God's grace to and through us is sometimes put into words, but what I am about to say next is not.
How much of YOUR attention does He have? How is your connection to God? How is your relationship with Him? How are your devotions and other Spiritual disciplines…Continue
