SURRENDER… and Win!

A client of mine came to me two years ago who was overwhelmed with where she was at in her business. She felt that she had hit her peak and would never again get back to where she had been years earlier. She had given up, was tired, and had lost her mojo. She even […]

Get Your Business Out of Cruise Control

The market has changed dramatically over the past couple of years.

In fact, not […]

The Bon-Bon Principle

bon-bons

Big dog facing little dog

Whether by luck or by chance I have found myself being the proud “mama” of a number of amazing animals over the years. I have had dogs, ducks, horses, goats, deer (yes deer), cats, geese, hamsters and guinea pigs. In the past few years I have had the thrill of being involved in some pretty […]
