How Do You Manage?

Many of us are entrepreneurs, or working from home, or business building and enjoy having freedom within our day. Perhaps we are out and about while networking, or we can adjust our day to handle a visit to the veterinarian, or can adjust our direction with ease because we are the one calling the shots. .. read more

Talk Back!

There is a prospect I’d love to get in front of who isn’t returning my calls or responding to my emails. Eventhough he invited me to connect with him, he is being unresponsive.

Back to Basics for the Spirit

Re-entering the work world feels quite different today. It’s Monday, the first day of the week. Sometimes my weekends are so full of activity that I relish the downtime on Monday mornings simply so I can digress and reflect, easing into the week. Yet I’ve spent the past 7 days in the woods.

The Weak Get Going

Maybe it’s because I used to teach and my day ended before 3pm. Or because I’m ADD. Or because my energy is low. When it gets to 3pm or so I also want to move on. To get going – away from the task at hand. It’s like when I’m on a treadmill. I get .. read more

As clear as…

I love swimming. Born a Pisces, my body takes to water like tires to the road. Sparkling water, a bit of a ripple and I’m ready to soak in the surroundings energized by the powerful connection of nature to spirit. On the other hand, sludge is such an energy sapper. It is visual proof of .. read more
