Baby Steps…

In coaching, I have seen individuals, teams and departments take it to the “Next Level” when they work out a solid game plan and don’t rush the process. Regretfully, I have also seen disappointment when they attempt to rush it as well. Like when you were a kid and cut your fingernails too short…you have… Read more »

Saving Money and Eating Healthy?

You bet…eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive as fruits and vegetables usually cost less than the foods that aren’t the best for you. We do “free meals” at least twice a week in our house by taking our left overs and then “lighten them up” for our next meal. Just cut up a whole… Read more »

Date Night??

Why not?? If you’re single, in a relationship or with a family…date nights are pretty sweet. Make it the way you want it, get dressed up, rent a movie, have a special meal! What you do is not as important as the feeling you get in the anticipation of date night and the reality of… Read more »

Finding Our Passion…

Can be difficult. I’ve heard it a thousand times: “Find your passion and your life will be what you want it to be”. Yeah, but how. I have found that our passion can be found through the things we don’t want to do…through experience, and the process of elimination. So start by finding out the… Read more »

Look at the “Whole Picture”

Many times we tend to focus on the situation or person without regard to the whole picture. I even catch myself at times…as well as people I coach. One of the main topics I come in contact with are challenges with family members. For instance, the parents get all lathered up because their teenager is… Read more »
