March 26, 2011

Why do so many of my clients, arguably some of the most discriminating and highest paying clients in the world, prefer to be called a “client” instead of a “patient”? Because as one of them said specifically “patient sounds as if I’m sick. I don’t like going to the doctor. Why would anyone want...

Why you can’t afford to NOT hire a business coach

March 12, 2011

Business coaching… yes, you CAN afford it. In fact, you can’t afford not to. A coach, like a personal trainer for your business- holds you accountable to taking action- until it becomes habit for you, a trait that is worth more than its weight in gold. I am so proud of all of my...

January 17, 2011

I’ve decided to stay in Mexico until April. Writing a book takes time in a peaceful, quiet environment and it doesn’t get more peaceful and quiet than this sleepy, magical little town. A beach town that I have run across, most likely not by coincidence, as I have quickly fallen in love with this...

A new year… new *ish* you and me.

January 1, 2011

It’s New Years Eve and I’m writing this blog. It’s only 10 PM and I am ready to pass out, despite being known for working well into the early morning. I’m tired. I’m sipping on a Coors Light at my aunts house. No, I’m not that kind of girl. I’m more of a dirty...
