Boundaries: What are they, How to figure them out, And feel good about standing your ground:

Picture this:

You start your day off  on a strong note—You’ve meditated, prayed for a good day, and repeated your morning affirmations: You’re set to face the day.

A client calls “Hey, I was wondering if I could cancel our meeting this afternoon and reschedule for tomorrow”

Why Its Impossible to Turn People off Just Because You Have a Niche

When people talk about creating clarity in business, one of the number one topics is choosing a niche.

There’s a lot of contradictory information out there about what a niche is, and at times I explain niche in a way that does not give the term it’s full value, but for the sake of simplicity a niche is your role (how and what you help people with) with a specific ideal client/dream client/target market/segment of society…

The Power of Living Fully + 3 Ways to Make Today Count

Today I’m sharing a story inspired by a friend that reminded me of the power of living fully and not taking life for granted:

Hearing that update was a wake-up on many levels:
