Think Career Translation versus Career Transition

“Wow, great cake, would love to know who the baker is,” I said to the well-coiffed 30 something woman seated next to me at my coaching client’s bridal shower. “Thanks, actually I baked it. I’m a bridal and wedding cake baker.” “Wow, it’s rare for a cake to both look and tastes great!” “Yup, I… Read more »

Finishing Strong Series, Give Yourself a Free Day

Today my plans got canceled for the day. I was supposed to visit a colleague and a friend about an hour away, and celebrate her new home! The non-stop report for “showers all day” in both our turfs put an end to our agenda. It was a bummer but we’ll reschedule, no biggie! I noticed… Read more »

The Power of Asking

One of my COVID projects is to launch a new website, and every month the heel marks got a little lighter, and knock on wood the new site will hopefully be up the end of October, mid-November.

I love mornings, I’m one of those (for some) annoying people who don’t drink caffeine and can have totally coherent… Read more »

One word that helps me stay in the here and now!

Three years ago, at a family reunion my cousin, Deanne was giving us a yoga class. It was upstate at a Dude Ranch (didn’t see many dudes except the ones in our family gathering and a few others) in the all-purpose room complete with dark paneling and a billiard table in the back. I looked… Read more »

How to Un-Funk Your Day!

Ever wake up with a slew of disappointing personal news (not the trainwreck of news we consume on a local, national and global level) and it’s not even 8am yet? Well that was what my morning was like! A wishlist consulting position that looked very promising, had dropped out of the running. My weight is… Read more »
