155: Who’s keeping you from seeing yourself clearly?

154: Lead with you
Feb 20 • 42 min

153: Multi-passionate is a MYTH
Feb 12 • 15 min
A common idea keeps many high achievers stuck in analysis paralysis. It’s the inability to decide on a focus area because they are admittedly ‘multi-passionate.’ Every day, talented professionals fail to move their brands forward because they can’t pick a…
152: Build on Your Foundation
Feb 4 • 21 min
Trying to figure out the next level of your brand? As much as you may think you need to start from zero and do something completely brand new, the key may be to go back to the beginning so you can see how you’ve always been able to summon success. Go…
151: The Snowball Effect
Jan 30 • 25 min

149: What’s going on underground?
Jan 15 • 14 min
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned from nature is this: the leaves and flowers of any growing plant are not visible all the time. And the same is true for us as ambitious high achievers. Even though we may want to be perpetually “in bloom”, that’s…
148: What would happen if you gave yourself more credit?
Dec 24, 2019 • 11 min
For high achievers, it’s common for us to become immune to our accomplishments. Before the triumph of a win has settled in, we’re on to the next. After jumping a major hurdle, we’ve already mentally raised the bar again before our feet even touch the…
147: Perfectionism is costing you the gift of PRACTICE
Dec 17, 2019 • 12 min
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never gotten really good at something without a ton of practice. And yet, when we get caught up in our perfectionism, we rob ourselves of the valuable practice that would make whatever we’re contemplating, well, perfect.…
146: The case for IMPERFECT ACTION
Dec 8, 2019 • 22 min
You don’t need a perfect blueprint to lay the first stone. And yet, as high achievers, many of us would rather wait until we have the most failproof plans before taking the smallest action. But action, no matter how imperfect, will refine even our best…
145: Are you being obedient to the call of your path?
Nov 20, 2019 • 17 min
If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably had a zillion ideas that somehow ‘magically’ dropped into your spirit - things you somehow knew you were supposed to be doing, or chances you new you were supposed to be taking, but you couldn’t explain how you…

133: Why high achievers need self care the most
Sep 28, 2019 • 12 min
We hear a lot about self care - how to get it, why we need more of it, and what does or doesn’t constitute it. But lately I’ve been made aware of the residual effects and payoff of self care - how it benefits me long after I’m in the practice of doing or…

130: How I handle exposure as an INTROVERT
Sep 21, 2019 • 19 min

127: Choose to choose
Sep 17, 2019 • 8 min

Sep 13, 2019 • 20 min
Sometimes limits are in our heads, telling us we can’t go any further when we have just a little bit of gas left in the take. Other times limits are deeper, and our exhaustion is our body/mind/spirit’s way of telling us we need to rest. But the beautiful…

Sep 6, 2019 • 10 min
How do you show up when you come to win? For some reason, we all know how to prioritize our work assignments, our money, our kids, even our health - but when we think of our gifts we go blank. We get ourselves out of bed and out of the house every day,…
116: Callings call
Sep 5, 2019 • 8 min

Sep 3, 2019 • 15 min

Sep 1, 2019 • 14 min

111: What’s keeping you from making a change?
Jul 12, 2019 • 13 min

108: You have to sell it
Jun 30, 2019 • 23 min

107: Make your visibility a PRIORITY
Jun 29, 2019 • 22 min

94: They may not say it, but they see you
Jun 16, 2019 • 12 min

Jun 14, 2019 • 21 min
I’m a collector - and have always been. You could call me a digital packrat, and I couldn’t argue with you. By that I mean, I don’t let content go to waste - as much as possible, I create shareable nuggets from whatever I have to say. No one does this…

Jun 9, 2019 • 14 min
