Miscarriages and Entrepreneurship

If you have been around for a minute, you know this already… but just in case, I have a confession to make: I am a little competitive. 

Okay, maybe more than a little. 

It’s just that when I commit to something, I like to make sure I am absolutely, positively, 100% IN. That means… 

🥎 If it is a game, I’ll do everything I can to make sure my team wins.

💻 If it’s a course, I ensure it actually delivers results (and is never half @$$ed).

🎞 If it’s my Youtube channel, that my content always b…


Amazon Versus eBay

On December 31st, so many people said, “Goodbye, 2020!” with huge sighs of relief. It was as if somehow they anticipated the ball dropping would change everything.

Of course, not much actually changed in that moment other than the date on the calendar. (If only change were that easy!) And no surprise, because real change requires much more than a hope, a wish, or a sparkly ball dropping at the end of a year. 

True change requires reevaluating your mindset.

For example, we live in a world wher…


Three Unexpected Steps to Breaking Your Phone Addiction

The very phone that you are reading this article on may be the source of your depression or anxiety. For your kids, having a phone may mean they're experiencing greater isolation and that they’re at higher risk for suicide.    I learned these fun facts from the film The Social Dilemma. In a related post, I talked about my take-aways, as a business therapist, after watching it. But if you’ve read any of my other blogs, you know I’m a humxn of action. So just talking about it wasn’t enough.  If yo…


The Social Dilemma: Uninstalling Social Addiction

So, I literally just finished watching The Social Dilemma on Netflix. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s a film with some of the biggest names from social media stepping forward to share how social media is literally monetizing our attention. I’m not going to give you too many spoilers or fully recap the film here; I encourage you to watch it for yourself (yes, it’s good enough to be worth your time).

Now, most of you know me as a business therapist. Some of you also know that I actually am …


"You're Only as Good as Your Last Delivery: How My Grandfather's Slogan Shaped My Life

Fifty years ago, my grandfather started a trucking company. As a successful entrepreneur and business owner, he liked to impart great words of wisdom to his offspring. His favorite phrase was, “You are only as good as your last delivery,” and he reminded us of it frequently. Of course, when you’re five, advice like that means absolutely nothing. 

Fortunately, though, he said it often enough for me to remember it. And I’m glad I do. Now that I am slightly older than five, I have come to apprecia…


Why I Ran Away From Home as an Adult

A few weeks ago, my family, who historically makes my birthday feel incredibly special, asked me what I wanted this year. I thought about it for a while, then I told them the truth. Though they were shocked and probably a little hurt by my response, I shared with them that what I really, truly wanted more than anything was a week without them. A week to myself. A week to be responsible for no one and nothing.

Now, as the self-proclaimed queen of self-care, I am well aware I already have far mor…
