Does this work?

Would you pay $5.00 for 5 minutes of this?  Hysterical, right?  The first time I saw this I laughed until I peed! And this Bob Newhart bit flashed across the screen of my mind again today because it illustrates almost perfectly something that’s been in my craw lately.   So, hold on tight cuz I’m gettin‘ out […]

Are You Rocking Your Reality?

A little while ago I realized that my business was running me instead of me running my business.   Any of you entrepreneurs out there relate?   On the one hand I LOVE what I do.  I took my passion and turned it into my life’s work.   So what was I doing in my […]

To Choose or Not to Choose

Hello, Hello and a Belated Ho-Ho-Ho for those of you who celebrated Christmas!  And for ALL of you – no matter what you celebrate – my wish for you is Big Love, Giant Joy and Incredible Inner Peace! I have been mostly unplugged and hunkered down in my PJs  reveling in my wonderful winter solstice break.  For several years now I’ve […]

The Magic We Be

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when stuff like this ‘happens’– (not the beginning of my story but the end!) 🙂 Last year tax time traumatized me.   I’d had my best year ever but despite dutifully paying quarterly estimates, when the time came to sit in front of my accountant and receive the verdict of what more I owed, […]

“I Am Awesome!”

My daughter Taiani, who is 11 years old has given me full permission to write this.   She is, in fact, eager to become an internet sensation so she encouraged me– “Put me out to the world, Mom!”  Not sure this is gonna tip her over the edge and into You Tube stardom but we’ll see. […]

Super-Klutz or Self-Saboteur?

Sometimes ya just gotta wonder. And right now I’m wondering. And the question I am posing to myself is: Am I just a colossal klutz with no grace whatsoever or a subconscious genius with superior self-sabotage skills? Read on and judge for yourself. The day started out great.  I worked all morning, had some great […]

Was Your 2015 Like Mine?

Happy New Year! Wow– 2016!! Who’d-a-thunk it would have gotten here so fast?! Did your year fly by too? How was your 2015? It seemed to be an interesting but extra-challenging year for TONS of people- Me included. Most of my colleagues, coach-friends and clients are echoing this too. 2015 was filled with massive bumps […]

Why’s it So Hard to Be Happy? -OR- A Little Neuroscience Anyone?

Here’s the thing–  I’m kinda geeky in certain ways and I can’t help my love of learning.  So when I hear a neuroscientist has ideas that line up with my own I kinda get all warm and fuzzy inside. So why is it so hard to be happy sometimes?  Why do we so easily go […]

The Agony of Debt – And How to See it Differently!

 September!  I’m back from a long and lovely week of perfect weather, fun, sun and surf!  My family and I spent a week in Ocean City, NJ at the end of August and it was just the perfect wrap-up of a wonderful summer. Morning Beach in OCNJ We rode our bikes on the boardwalk (Our […]

Feelin’ Kinda Loopy

  S  What do you think of when you hear the word “loop”?  To be honest, the first thing I think of is a loopty–loop roller coaster.  That, in turn, brings back the terror-filled, childhood memory (TAPTAPTAP) of Hershey Park and being trapped on the brand-new, cutting edge (at the time) Lightening Loops.  I was- […]
