Gardening & Entrepreneurship

Kitchen Garden

When we moved from Chicago to Waco in the summer of 2020, I left all my plants with a friend. Unfortunately, we ran out of room to safely transport them – being a plant lover, this was especially hard. Some I’d had for ten years or so. But, I had to let them go –…

Reconnecting with WHY as an Entrepreneur

Female Entrepreneur - reconnecting with WHY as an Entrepreneur

With just a few minutes between meetings, I am often tempted to stay at my desk and work. Even when nothing needs my immediate attention, my inner “people pleaser” often encourages me, or should I say, attempts to shame me, not to leave anything undone, even for just a moment. For years I’ve been working…

Give that which you wish to receive

As a business coach, one of my client’s biggest challenges is growing their businesses while maintaining their authenticity.  Sharing their services and products with others without feeling salesy or sleazy. The easiest way to increase business for a heart-centered entrepreneur is by staying connected with those that already know, trust and adore you.  Nurturing a…

Dedication, devotion or just crazy?

As I toured the castle recently I was awe struck by this man and his accomplishment. His devotion to building the castle and to his lost love are apparent everywhere on the castle grounds. What gives someone the passion, drive and commitment to continue to build something like this for more than 30 years?

Start somewhere……..but start NOW!

As a small business owner, Mom, coach, and friend, one of the most common statements I hear are “but I don’t know what to do.” It’s not the technical part that holds us back; there are plenty of geeks among us to help out with something until they get profitable and can hire someone permanently.…

If only I could work at this pace all the time…

If only we could work at this speed more often. Where we’re getting more done in a day than we did all last week. Where projects that may need our attention while we’re out are getting wrapped up, nice and neat with a bow on top.

The customer isn’t always right

Often in our careers or businesses we’re given examples or rules or ideas to follow which may or may not feel right. For example:  “The customer is always right.” Well, we all know that isn’t true! While I’m sure the idea behind it came from years where the customer didn’t matter, it’s been taken too…

Are you using this to make decisions?


  Isn’t it interesting that something we’re born with, something so natural to us as an infant is sometimes so distant by the time we’re adults that we’re almost completely out of touch with it? I’m talking about inner guidance, or intuition. Maybe you’ve heard it called instincts, hunches, or a “gut” feeling. The name…

It All Started with a Bucket List

Living a life of passion and purpose - living freely and doing the things that you'd like

    I use to be the person who always had places and experiences I wanted as well as things I wished to have, but never got around to documenting any of them. No lists, no vision board just thinking of them from time to time with no real focus or faith. Occasionally I’d really…

I’m Full of Gratitude

Holy Cow! (or should I say Holy Turkey?) Anyway, can you believe it’s already “that“ time of year?  Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means that as I write this in late October, there are Halloween decorations in Target (or your favorite store) right next to the Christmas decorations. Is it me, or does…
