Last weekend, I took my kids to the pool in my home town. At this pool, there is a high dive and a low dive. As you would imagine, for some kids (heck, for some adults) it is a big, huge, scary deal just to climb the high dive steps and jump off straight forward. … Continue reading Don’t Chicken Out on the High Dive
Recently, I made the mistake of looking up. I’d had my head down, focused on completing the tasks to move me closer to my goals. I was successfully juggling the various responsibilities in my life, and then I looked up to see how I was doing. I guess you have to look up and assess … Continue reading Simple Advice to Get Through Feeling Overwhelmed

For anyone unfamiliar with this, the instructor speaks in a soft, soothing voice and uses imagery to try to evoke certain emotions in you...peace, strength, love, etc. Now I am a huge believer in the power of the mind and in using positive … Continue reading Who Is the Most Powerful Person in Your Life?

It's because my last post was about How to Be a Badass at Making Money and this next recommendation is for Unfu*k Yourself: Get out of your head and into your … Continue reading Get Out of Your Own Way

You see, I first read Bethenny Frankel's book, A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life, when it was published in 2011.
