Living in Your Designer Genes

You have designer genes.I am sure of it. Everyone does, but like most people, I really didn’t discover mine in a way I imagined I would.

What are designer genes?

It might be a skill that comes so naturally you barely realize its uniqueness.

It might be an obsessive passion that distracts you or a talent that comes out in every situation.

Or those designer genes might lead you to a much desired goal fulfilling a dream.

Your designer genes can be quiet and…

I Wanted to be a Man...and Create World Peace!

Ever watch the movie, MR. DEEDS? Adam Sandler who plays Deeds, asks people what they wanted to do with their lives.Many of the people in the  audience shout out what they wanted to be earlier in their life.From veterinarians to fireman, everyone had a thought about what role they wanted to play and one woman even shouted out,” I wanted to be a man!”…

You Didn't Major in Mediocrity

Ever look at those bright eyed, “I’m off to change the world” graduates and think, “Yeah, right!”

Truth is, most people have an expectation for their lives they expect to grow into.

Think back on your own experiences.What did you want to do or start or be part of?

What movement could you picture yourself being a leader in? What terrible crisis did you want to fix or unjustice did you want to resolve?

We tend to start out with big plans and then life gets in the…

Why Knowing Changes Everything

Scary little varmint isn’t it? I should know and knowing has been the entire battle.



A little over a month ago, we needed our air conditioner replaced.My husband decided that since the furnace was just as old, he would replace them both.Two men arrived and one worked installing the air conditioning unit outside while the other was up in my attic installing the furnace. When the repairman who was…

When You Are On Purpose

When she was just 5, Hannah Taylor observed a homeless man rummaging in the garbage for food.By the time she was 8, Hannah started The Ladybug Foundation which has had an incredible impact on homelessness in Canada.

It’s not important whether you have heard about it. It may be one of many organizations that are quietly making an…

When You Need a BIG PUSH

When you were younger did you ever try to fly? Probably weren’t successful right? I wasn’t either, at least at the type of flying I started out trying to do.

There are 4 little birds in a nest in a large Boston Fern on my porch.

I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a bird lover when they are located where I like to work most of the time.

I haven’t encouraged these birds, in fact earlier in the season, I bought a large owl ( yeah, I know bird lovers are gonna hate me!) and set it…

Want a Little Business A`La Carte?

One of my friends is a bit compulsive about any food presented to her.She often prefers any liquid foods to be a’la carte. Whether a gravy, sauce or type of condiment, she simply enjoys having those items on the side rather than on top or mixed in with her meal.

Many people prefer to start or even keep a business that way.

They are perhaps employed full or part-time as an employee and want to start a business but…

My New Rescue Dog and the Picture in Your Mind

This has been a week of mixed emotions for me.On Monday we said “Good-bye” to the Weimaraner we rescued more than 12 years ago.He truly was an amazing animal and one I bonded with completely.Everything about this week has been bittersweet.

Tomorrow we will arrive to meet our new special boy and take him back to his now furever home.I am anxious, excited and scared.I hope that the picture of what comes next in my mind will come to pass.

That’s what it is like to dream about…

Five Things You Should Do JUST FOR YOURSELF

The country artist, Toby Keith sang a little ditty a few years ago which included the words;

“I wanna talk about me

Wanna talk about I

Wanna talk about number one

Oh my me my

What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see…”

Sounds selfish doesn’t it? But I think frequently we fail to recognize the important things we need to do in our…

What About Your Show?

When a baseball player first gets to the major leagues, he is welcomed to the “show”. The phrase,”You’re going to the show” often signifies a move up into a truly professional league, whether baseball, hockey or basketball.

Years of practice, hard work, commitment and discipline finally pay off with an opportunity to show off skills at the highest platform.

Players in all sports dream of the day they get to the “show”.…

You Had Me at Merlot, I Know...So, Let's Go.

Yes, I know, that’s not what SHE SAID.

She also never said, “You had me at “Van Gogh” or at “Bordeaux”.  But I bet the headline caught your eye and you just had to take a look and now you’re thinking, “Wait, this is not going to be about wine and good times at all.”

Wait…Stop! It is!! Well, it is going to be about whiners which agreed, is nothing like fine wine, but if you leave you’ll miss the part where the party begins and everyone likes a good party, so…

Are You An Entrepreneur Having a Fling or Commitment?

After giving a presentation to a group of business owners last week, I was not surprised to find that some entrepreneurs attending had thriving, prosperous businesses while others were struggling just to make ends meet.

There are a few obvious red flags that separate the successes from the ones struggling and if you are an entrepreneur, it might be helpful to know what those…

Just How Hungry are You?

Have you ever sat down to a meal and said, ” I’m so hungry I could eat a _____?”  When you are that hungry, you often will eat whatever is available. If you are eating in a restaurant, you may order more than typical because you just want some food. Sometimes you will choose something that may not be exceptionally appealing but will satisfy the hunger you are experiencing.

When I am coaching clients, I often discover many are very hungry for whatever they can grab onto to help them…

Are You an Entrepreneur Whose Business Needs Glasses?

Most entrepreneurs dream big dreams and have great visions for their business.I think that is wonderful and wouldn’t want it any other way.I love to work with entrepreneurs who don’t give up after a setback and are committed to making their business a success.

But sometimes entrepreneurs miss the details and the subtleties that impact their businesses.They might dedicate every minute to working on their…

Everyone Goofs...Even Smart Business Owners

Did you watch the Academy Awards a few nights ago? Everyone is talking about how unfortunate it was to have announced the wrong winner for the Best Picture. It was unfortunate, but certainly not devastating, because everyone goofs sometime.

Of course, no one wants to wear egg on their face in public but I think it is a sign of transparency and just being human when we make a mistake, own up to it, and ask forgiveness if it has offended anyone. In fact, I tend to trust people who are…

I Want to Stop Being a Witch

“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…

It's About Time and that Dream Job!

Let’s face it. It is about time. It’s always about time. It never fails when I work with clients, they often say “It’s about time” but WHY they say it often separates those who are committed and those who are still making excuses.

Where Are You On the About Time Spectrum?

I can always tell when I speak with a client who really wants nothing more than to change the direction of their career. They are all about doing whatever it takes to make that dream happen and even when it…
