Make Happiness a Habit

It’s my birthday week, and I’ve been reflecting on the past 30 (HaHa) years and all of the life lessons I’ve learned (mostly the hard way because I’m stubborn). I can say with certainty that I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and I’d like to share the secret sauce to happiness compiled […]

This week’s blog post topic came to me over the weekend when I *almost* let a small moment ruin my entire day. So, this is also self-talk, as a reminder. What do I mean when I say, “stop letting a moment ruin your entire day”? Let me set the stage […]

Talking to 25-Year-Old ME

My son, Alex, just turned 25 this week, and so perhaps this is one of the reasons I am reflecting on myself at age 25. There are so many things I’d like to tell Alex and Jake, but advising my sons, especially at age 21-25, tends to fall on deaf […]

People Should Meet My Expectations

How’s that headline to catch your attention? Actually, I was sorting through my ‘old’ youtube videos and came across an oldie but goodie on “Do You Expect People to Fit Your Idea of How They Should Be?” and it is still relevant today, 5 years later. Especially during the “age […]

Having Multiple Business Partners Can Be Magical

I decided to write this post because colleagues often ask me how I operate a business with not one, but two business partners. It’s hard enough having one business partner, let alone two, but I have to tell you our business relationship has been magical. Our friendship is more like […]
