We Are All Human

Okay so we are all human – we make mistakes, we learn as we go and sometimes we need to listen to OURSELVES. What do I mean? I am in the business of helping other people do business – encouraging and helping others to make tough decisions, follow up on leads and...

As a mom, heck - as a WOMAN - we can sometimes go overboard on trying to keep up. We think everybody else is perfect - perfect house, perfect job, perfect kids, how do they do it?? And we don’t stop to realize that no one is perfect, and we can’t compare ourselves to...

First Day of School

Oh my goodness! Tomorrow is the First Day back to school! This mom is all of a sudden a little panicky! Summer is officially over. This is that time of year where as a mom, I either retreat or go overboard. There’s so much pressure, certain outfits, name brands,...

You Are Not Forsaken

You Are Not Forsaken

In the past, I’ve written a few blog posts about growing up and dealing with abandonment issues. My biological father didn’t want me. Repeatedly didn’t want me. But would schedule visits as if he did and then not show up. Can you imagine sitting on the curb in front...

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

It’s OK to not be OK all the time. I don’t know what it is about needing permission...  Is it a human thing? A woman thing? A mom thing?  I remember when I was pregnant and just about ready to pop with our first child. I was talking to a client about her experiences...
