What if we got Curious About our Anger

In my first coaching training program, 15 years ago, I had to answer what to me was one of the most powerful questions. “What is the hardest feeling for you to feel?” “Anger.” It fascinated me at the time, how quickly it poured out of me, because 800 clients later when I ask my clients… Read more »

Happy Women…Happy Planet!

When we celebrate each other everyone wins! We have an opportunity as women every moment of every day, to either elevate or knockdown another woman in our lives.

Today is my birthday and I’ve been…

Today is my birthday and I’ve been love-bombed with cards, songs, emails, gifts, and just the abundance of love in my life.
