#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Ruth Lopez

Today, you get to meet Ruth Lopez. She’s the Director of Transportation Management for Ryder System, Inc. and a real-life Wonder Woman. One of Ruth’s superpowers is humility. She works hard and does great things, but isn’t one to toot her own horn, which is why I am overjoyed to tell you that she’s had a big year. She earned the

Risk vs. Reward: Would you ride a mechanical bull? 

I was speaking at a conference in Dallas and arrived early enough to attend a conference mixer, the first night’s networking party. Imagine walking into a huge conference center ballroom, brightly decorated with a State Fair theme, and a thousand people in attendance. Bright lights, vendor booths, corn dogs and cocktails. And tucked between the popcorn stand and one of

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Avalon George

When I first met today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman, she was wearing a pink tutu. She was five years-old. She was precious. She loved to dance. And what I didn’t know at the time, was that little Avalon was living with Cystic Fibrosis. While CF is a part of Avalon’s life, it does not define her. She’s a strong, vibrant woman–and a brand

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Deborah Johnson

One day you wake up and the world has changed. Your body changes, your relationships change and even your work changes. Your coworkers are starting to call you ma’am and you no longer feel relevant. You’re not dead, but there is a tuck of urgency when you’re suddenly acutely aware of that change. As you reassess and evaluate, you quickly

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Katie Nall

Today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman wears many capes! She’s an accidental wife (46 years this summer), proud mother of three kids (who still speak to her), delighted “Gummi” to the Four Adorables (granddaughters!), professional speaker (member of the National Speaker Association), mathematician (yes, as in Ph.D.), and Certified Practitioner in Emotional Freedom Technique (a.k.a. tapping). And did I mention that she is fun?

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Alexandria Freel

Have you ever met someone who exudes joy? A person who oozes positive energy and makes you feel good just being around her? Well, that’s the first impression I had when I first met today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman. We were introduced when I spoke at a women in business event, and her positive energy was palpable. I must add that I found

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Judi Kroeker

I first met today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman at summer camp. I was eleven. She was twelve. At Swan Lake Christian camp in Viborg, South Dakota, we became friends. We swam, hiked, worshipped, crafted, toasted marshmallows, and sang together–returning each summer through our high school years. Over time, we eventually lost touch, but were reunited nearly two decades later when our daughter Brooke

Party like it’s 2019!

A fun collection of very special colleagues, clients and friends all gathered to celebrate in the beautiful space of Modernwell in Minneapolis. We ate. Oh, man, did we eat! Thanks to amazing catering
