The Worst and the Best is Yet to Come

Someone said to me recently, “Just when we survive the pandemic, then we’re hit with skyrocketing inflation and a likely recession… when will all this ever end? When will things finally get back to normal?!” I just smiled because my experience has shown me that “normal” is anything but black and white. Neither is it a straight line but rather …

The Future

I heard a great quote recently by Amy Mann: If it’s not happening now… it’s not happening. Unlike any other animal on this planet, humans can understand the concept of the future. A blessing and a curse, I think. Our big, powerful brains constantly desire to create a better life, an improved circumstance for ourselves and because we can conceive …

How to Take a Vacation

Over the years, some of my travels have been better than others. I’ve learned a lot (mostly the hard way!) about how to increase my chances of success, and as summer approaches and many of us plan for family vacations, long holiday weekends, and special outings, I want to share some tips for making the most of our journeys.

Music Monday: The Song Within the Silence

Sometimes, when I take a walk with my dog, Sierra, I can tell that she stops to listen to sounds when I hear only silence. Occasionally, at a crowded, noisy event in the midst of competing stories, laughter, voices, serving dishes, and music, I can hear my own internal voice saying something kind, admonishing, or even sarcastic (and I’m often …

Be Where Your Feet Are

This summer, by early August, the fires in Northern California were in full swing.  At that point, we had no idea how close and how bad it would get around our little cabin at Echo Lakes, but we were already dealing with low air quality and smokey conditions most days. We had invited my childhood friend, Deb Berecz and her …

Exhaling

One of my favorite mantras is: Life is always working out for me. Boy, did it help to remember and reassure myself of that this past week. As many of you already know, our sweet little cabin at Echo Lakes near Tahoe has been under siege from the Caldor Fire for the past 10 days. Built in 1924 by my …

What Are Your Emotions Telling You?

There is a simple success formula originally authored by Jack Canfield, E+R=O.  Emotions + Response = Outcome. If you’re liking your current outcomes with your goals, people, or overall business, then your emotions are likely producing the right responses. If there are areas where you are not getting the outcomes you want, your emotions may be telling you something. The …

Is It Really This Easy?

I’ve made a serious, conscious effort to work in my business and live more of my life from an “in the now” perspective and, since doing so, some days I’m literally overwhelmed with the fullness and richness of my life…. An abundance of love, money, laughter, friends, and experiences that I never dreamed would flow to me this easily. I’ve also …

The Song within the Silence

Sometimes, when I take a walk with my dog, Sierra, I can tell that she stops to listen to sounds which my ears cannot hear. Sounds for her within the silence for me. Occasionally, at a crowded, noisy event in the midst of competing stories, laughter, voices, serving dishes, and music, I can hear my own internal voice saying something …
