My answer used to be a ready no anytime I was challenged to do something outside of my comfort zone. I had learned fear early. I never had to phone a friend, consult a mentor or think about it. It was always a no. It was as if I had made a pact with myself…Details
I’m just going to cut to the case here. 2017 was a hoot of a year! There was fun, tears, and pain. There were great strides made, and yes, there was random stuff that may seem inconsequential but still made it a year to remember. Let’s dive in, shall we? POTUS 45!…Details
I moved halfway across the world at the age of 30, and it felt like double jeopardy. Turning 30 already felt weird and unsettling. I was battling feelings of lack of accomplishment, trying hard to find my place in this vast universe and feeling like I was failing at it. Add to that the…Details
Pink, blue, orange… Those were my answers at different times in my life when someone asked what my favorite color was. Pink because it’s girly, and I wanted to be effortlessly so.

Learning Skills By Necessity Or ‘You Should Do This If You Want Money For Things Like Pants and Apples.’
Are you experiencing a mid (or early) career crisis? According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics “Americans average 10-14 jobs between the ages of 18 and 34 and 3-5 career changes by the age of 38.” That is a lot!

Isolation is the place where dreams go to die. This morning, I read an article on Linkedin about loneliness and its impact on workplace productivity.

One sure way to find out your purpose in life. If you’re self-aware, deliberate in your desire to make an impact and are not simply drifting through life, then you’ve most certainly asked the question, “What am I doing (or going to do) with my life?” That might be the easiest or the most difficult…Details
Don’t hide your fear! A few weeks ago, I was chatting with a friend about all things life, motherhood, God, and career. The conversation was stimulating as I have always found my friend to be confident and comfortable in her own skin.

What’s your definition of greatness? Growing up, I had differing definitions at various times in my life. There were times I thought it meant getting good grades at school. At other times, it was studying to work in a certain field and a host of other things. I know better now. Greatness isn’t a time-stamped, location-based factor. It’s how we live every day significantly and with purpose. It’s making decisions that count and being bold enough to be what we were created to be.
On this episode, I share my journey and how greatness and living on purpose came to take a different meaning in my life.
I hope it helps you gain a fresh perspective on the greatness that lies inside of you.
