#RealLifeWonderWoman–Meet Rachel Michael

Meet Rachel Michael, style coach extraordinaire! After working with close to a thousand clients at a national online personal styling service, this real-life Wonder Woman started her own Minneapolis-based styling business called Reflect Style. Personally, I’m in love with her mission: to help people look good, feel good and love what they wear. She’s all about refining and celebrating each person’s individual style

A Pledge of Resilience

Lately, the word “resilient” keeps popping up in conversation and in my social media feeds. Apparently, it is a hot topic across generations and across industries. I hear it from concerned parents asking how they can help their kids be more resilient. I hear it from young women who feel like they are crushed by adversity, and wanting guidance. I

Go Bananas! Let your coworkers know you care. 

I was walking through Target on Saturday, February 15th. It had been a few weeks since I’d visited this happy place—the place that greets you with the scent of Starbucks as you walk in and bright, colorful displays teasing you immediately to the dollar section. Smiling employees, wearing their red and khaki, offering to assist you and the lure of

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Jennifer Lahmann

Meet Jen! By day, she’s an account executive with Leighton Broadcasting, a wife and mom of two. And by night, well, she’s a rockstar. No, seriously…a real-life rockstar. She’s the lead singer in a band. I had the privilege of meeting Jen years ago when we both worked in hospice. This real-life Wonder Woman has got a heart of gold

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Cori Schneider

Oh, friends, you’re in for a real visual treat today! This week’s real-life Wonder Woman is a talented artist and is sharing examples of her work with us. While widely known for her one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, Texas-based Cori Schneider is equally gifted on canvas. From cows to cathedrals and coral to crystals, Cori’s talents shine through. And she’s not only

How do you stay organized?

We’re already a month into the new year! You’ve identified your 2020 goals. You’ve even broken them down into do-able, bite-sized chunks. So how do you stay “on track” and organized as the busy-ness of life accelerates? Inquiring minds want to know! I was recently asked how I stay organized in day-to-day operations with my business, specifically as a solopreneur

How to become more resilient

Are You Resilient?  We all have times in our lives when we fall down—literally or figuratively—and find ourselves bruised emotionally, physically, or spiritually. What do you do when you fall? Do you stay down? Or do pick yourself back up? When you’re faced with obstacles, do you succumb? Or do you surmount?  What would Wonder Woman do? She’d use the

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Vickie Night

Today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman inspires me with her resolve and her love. Her life was forever changed almost 4 years ago when her then, 17 year old son suffered a massive brainstem stroke. She’s currently a stay-at-home mom, author and caretaker to her now 21 year old son. Meet Vickie Night, a real-life Wonder Woman! KR: Vickie, when I think of you, the

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Brooke Peterson

Ever meet someone who just drew you in? Someone with genuinely positive energy? A few weeks ago, I met someone like that at a creative retreat in Wisconsin. She was quiet, at first. Thoughtful and respectful. But willing to open up and ask questions. I could tell almost immediately that she was smart. Like really smart. And compassionate, too. As

Why Wonder Woman?

Someone recently asked me, “Why do you spend so much time and energy featuring other real life Wonder Women on your website and social media when you could be promoting your own business?” I was a little surprised by the question.  Honestly, wouldn’t you rather read stories about cool people doing great things than view ads for my speaking services
