Validating Your Value

November 10th, 2008

An amazing coaching client who is currently in the “daring to dream” process recently made a very insightful observation that she needs to learn to validate herself for the ways she is uniquely gifted. I couldn’t agree more! Most people will agree that genetically, just like snowflakes, no two people are alike. Even identical twins have individual likes and dislikes, interests, passions, dreams, and talents. Intellectually, I believe most of us would say that every single person on the face of the earth has something unique to offer…something no one else in the world can exactly match.... Read More

1-2-3 Find My Dream

October 7th, 2008

“But I don’t know what my dream is,” my friend sighed. She sounded frustrated. I don’t think I’ve ever talked with someone who actually wants to live a boring, uninspiring life. In fact, most people get pretty excited when they think about what it would be like to follow their passion and purpose every day. The problem is, it isn’t that easy. Simply liking the idea of turning your dreams into reality isn’t enough to make it happen. For people like my friend, they’ve been stuck in the life that’s just happened to them for so long, they’re no longer sure what their dream even... Read More

I will Believe in You Every Day of My Life

February 18th, 2008

“I will believe in you every day of my life,” was told to ET by Elliot. About a week ago, I woke up in the middle of the night and heard someone say, “Why don\’t you write about me?” I was pretty sure I recognized that voice. The next morning I picked up a book, opened it, and read, “I will believe in you every day of my life.” Okay, so this person is not so subtle! David is my Elliot. We met 25 years ago. We were both 12 (we were mature for our age) and were employed in the Direct Mail/Advertising department at Bloomingdale\’s in Manhattan. We had that comfort level that... Read More

You Are Unique! Accept It!

December 4th, 2007

There are things I don\’t like about myself. For one, I\’m much too anxious. I apparently have been dealt an unusually high number of stress hormones. No matter how many positive messages I give myself, there are situations to which I react with sheer panic. This can make life most uncomfortable, to say the least. Then there are the painful joints and a torn tendon that are the blessings of activity and age. Other things I don\’t like, that really don\’t matter much, are straight baby-fine hair, glasses, and orthopedic shoes. I\’m working on managing my variety of... Read More

It’s Never Too Late

August 28th, 2007

What are you doing starting a business at the age of 58? I keep asking myself that question. I am now 60 years old and am the CEO, owner, Chairman of the Board, Chief Financial Officer, Accountant, Marketing Director, (I love the sound of all those important titles) for my own company. Who would have thunk it! Aren\’t I supposed to be sitting in a rocking chair knitting a baby blanket or something? Years ago that is what we baby boomers thought would happen by age 60. I don\’t feel like 60 (most days). I still listen to soft rock of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I can still do a mean jitter-bug!... Read More
