Are Babies Going to Die?

A striking question. Yet that is the point. I worked my way through college as a manager of an Estee Lauder counter at Bloomingdale’s.

All She Wanted

She was getting it all done. She just wanted someone to recognize it. When she […]

The Dance on Mt. Ida

So when there is a traffic hold up or any unexpected time-eater, it can be an issue. But never on Mt. Ida. Every morning, […]

While sitting across the white tablecloth from Grandma and singing “Happy Birthday” it occurred to me how truly beautiful she was on her ninety-sixth birthday.

Puppy Love

This week one of my clients told me about the new dog she adopted.  I was concerned for a few reasons.  First, finances are tight right now and a dog can cost of family a thousand dollars or more a year.  Plus my client is trying to release stress versus adding more responsibilities to her […]

One of my favorite clients visited me recently.  The sessions are a lot of fun for both of us because we toggle between business planning and personal growth.  What I noticed recently is that my client also toggles his personality depending on which subject we are addressing.  We talk about personal goals and he is […]

Focus and Trust

My husband and I were lucky enough to take a few days off of work so we could have a relaxing cruise on the Chain of Lakes.  One day we met up with a friend and his children.  The kids wanted to go tubing behind the boat.  My husband and our friend took turns driving […]

What is Life Coaching Like?

The other day I was chatting with two friends.  They both mentioned being asked what life coaching was like.  Neither had an easy time explaining the coaching process.  It got me to wondering how many others are not really sure about the process.  There are many different coaches out there specializing in different goals and […]
