Are you feeling frumpy in your clothes?
Tolerations are anything you’re reluctantly putting up with that cause friction, frustration, and drain your energy. While there are 8 types of tolerations, Body tolerations are about how you look and feel in your body.

You’re too old and just not that lucky
One of my superpowers is detecting limiting beliefs and false assumptions. They’re rotten for your confidence and your future. You know, thoughts like I’m just not lucky or I’m too old to make a career change. Here’s what I believe: There are enough external obstacles in life without putting internal ones in your way too.

Dear Inner Critic: Here are 5 things I want to tell you
My Inner Critic is a mean girl. And to be honest, I don’t much like her. She’s a glass half empty kind of gal. She’s overly blunt, kind of whiny, and has zero bedside manner. She’s the kind of girl who will pull the chair out from under you if you’re not paying attention. And […]

Fear, I know you want to keep me from doing this…
I have a client who doesn’t want to make cold calls for her business because she’s afraid. Afraid of intruding and interrupting. Afraid of stumbling and not sounding confident. Afraid of being rejected. I totally get it. Whenever I do something I’ve never done before, it feels awkward and uncomfortable. I feel awkward and uncomfortable. […]
Oops, I just lost a bunch of work and have a choice to make
I’m in the midst of creating a course I plan to launch in October. More about that in the coming weeks. But that’s not what this post is about. No, this is about what happened last week when I lost 30+ hours worth of video recording and editing work. I won’t get into the technical […]
