Happy Work It Wednesday! How is your summer going so far? I've been able to spend the last few weeks here in the breathtaking Mid-West. Hopefully you have been able to enjoy a bit of travel time as well.
Similar to you and other women, I love to give compliments to others and point out their awesomeness. Throughout my trip in the Mid-West I noticed more than ever the differences between men and women and how they respond to a compliment. So many women in the past few weeks
As you know social media is inundated with so much information today. Some of it is great and some of it is not so great! For most of us that are running small businesses or that are in the coaching world, the challenge and the question is "How do we get seen and stand out with our message?"
It's an obstacle that we struggle with every day as we try to build our audience, make an impact, and of course, optimize social media to leverage the business.

Happy Work It Wednesday! It's June, can you believe it?
A few days ago I went to a networking gathering in Costa Mesa. It was one of the most enjoyable events I had been to as it involved not only connecting with others but learning and collaboration. at the event we watched two TED talks from two impactful leaders and then discussed what we got from it and how we can utilize this information within our own companies and projects.

A few weeks ago I had the incredible opportunity to go do a "Ted Like" talk in Toronto, Canada. My keynote talk is generally on "Break Your Limiting Beliefs Create Unlimited Success" however, this time I was asked to speak on The Top Tips to Effective Leadership!This was really exciting for me as it truly is one of the elements I am incredibly passionate about.
So let's start with the question, what is a leader? What are the qualities they should embody? In my opinion a lea
In the performing world we say that, “ You are always in the limelight both on and off the stage!” This means that someone is always watching you and the actions you take. Furthermore, the crowds reaction is based off of your performance on stage! As a performer you have the power to affect the audience in a number of ways. The same goes true for us as individuals on a daily basis. How we show up on stage aka “life,” determines how people respond and receive us. We are walkin
This week I had the incredible opportunity to judge at DECA which "prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe." It was an incredible opportunity and very exciting to see young minds explore entrepreneurship and emerging start-ups. There were many incredible ideas and concepts that can change the consumer marketplace, however three key elements were consistently lacking in most pr
How's your week going so far? Have you had the chance to get out there and meet some new faces and build new connections this week?
This is something I try to make a point of at least once or twice a week. Meeting new people and building relationships is key to creating an incredible and supportive tribe around you, not to mention the possibility of partnerships and collaborations professionally.
This whole idea of networking can be incredibly uncomfortable, especially w
I have to tell you the truth, the past few weeks I have been feeling grumpy and down. I have been trying to figure out why and it suddenly hit me this past weekend! This past month has been a beautifully busy season, so much so that I haven't picked up a book from my nightstand in weeks. This simple act of reading and feeding my brain was affecting my behavior in a negative way because it was being ignored!

For many years women have kept their head down and followed in line, rarely stepping outside of the box. Until recently many women have believed and tended to stereotypes put on us by society such as “You must be a stay at home mom,” “Women shouldn’t voice their opinion frequently,” and the old saying “Women are too emotional to be leaders.” It is now 2017 and women are making remarkable changes in society and in the work force. A recent study shows that more women now earn a
