I just returned from the National Association of Business Women (NAWBO) national conference in San Antonio, Texas. The most uplifting part of the trip was watching thirty two of the sixty NAWBO chapters from across the country receive their First Star in the recently launched Healthy Chapter program. Receiving this first star required each president and/or […]

Let me introduce you to my amazing guest blogger, Susan Tollefson. She is a time management and productivity specialist. She helps business owners who are living in crisis mode, are frustrated and overwhelmed with the amount of energy it takes to operate their business, and are frequently encountering obstacles that prevent them from following through with their […]

Back in 2008 I was working with Susan Tollefson, a time management specialist, to figure out how I could increase revenue and expand my business. At the time, in addition to my consulting work, I was doing contract work as a business consultant for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). I liked the variety of […]

I have been reading Malcolm Gladwell’s book “Outliers, The Story of Success”. If you are familiar with Gladwell you know he’s a fabulous author. He’s also one of my all time favorites. In reading “Outliers”, what captured my attention is the concept of what he calls the “10,000 Hour Rule.” He tells us that researchers […]

I was talking with a client the other day and she said something to the effect that when she loses weight all will be right in her world. I hadn’t heard anyone say this to me in a long time and it got my attention. I told her that embracing this point of view puts […]

The only thing we can change is ourselves, i.e. our behavior. You’ve heard me say this many times as I know it to be true. Today’s topic is about the resistance we have to creating and upholding boundaries with our clients. We often experience conflict when it comes to making clear statements, writing a contract […]

I have decided that once a month, rather than writing my own blog, I am going to offer you the brilliant thoughts and ideas of my colleagues and clients. I am only one person, with one POV, and there is so much more to be shared! I am starting this month with Victoria Lasin of […]

A number of years ago, one of my colleagues asked me to help her deal with feelings of overwhelm and the resulting judgmental voices that left her feeling very bad about herself. I am sharing the story she wrote and the steps she moved through to get to the other side of overwhelm. I know […]

Last fall I had the pleasure of attending the NAWBO (National Association of Women in Business) annual conference in Indianapolis. I had been doing pro bono work on their behalf, bringing the One Page Business Plan protocol to their leadership team. As part of this process, I was invited to present at their national conference.
