I DO NOT WANT A DOG

My daughter wants a dog. Bad. Like real bad. Like keeping her up late at night bad. I do not want a dog. We have 2 cats. And I have my 10 year old Taylor. I have never in my life had a desire to have things that count on me for food and water. […]

Is it YOUR time to love your life? All of it?

So I was at an appointment Monday with my dermatologist. She asked me how my day was. I thought about it and said, “Actually, really fast.” She said, “OH THAT’S GREAT! Don’t you love when they fly by? You know how sometimes you look at the clock, and are like…oh my gosh, ONLY 2:30?!” Me: […]

What it Means to Live an EPIC Life.

Stop The Madness!

Are You Playing Your A Game or Your B Game?

Or heck, are you even in the game? My guess is many of you are B-gaming it. I know, I B-gamed it for years. There’s a good chance you might be B-gaming it and you may not even be fully aware of it. Me? I was aware. For y-e-a-r-s I was painfully aware. The B […]

Vacations Don’t Fire Me UP. This Does!

I’m a little fired up. I just finished creating my “2014 Summer Adventure List” — Everybody does this right? And in just a few hours I’m heading out on a 120 mile bike excursion. Staying overnight in a little town I love, eating great food, drinking great drinks, and enjoying gorgeous scenery via the Blue […]

Strategic Retreat: What is it? And Why I Took One.

  Strategic Retreat + My “not so new,” but new business. I’ve been in a period of what I call “strategic retreat”… a time of going inside my head, heart, and soul more. I should say, “more than unusual” because I do hang out in those places a lot. Usually though when I’m in my […]
