Rethinking Resolutions — My POWER WORDS for 2020

1. I’m going to only eat green leafy things and give up wine, cheese and chocolate so I can lose 25 pounds by February.  2. I will write 3 poignant and creative blog posts a week. 3. I will achieve work-life balance in 2020. I used to make New Year’s resolutions like the ones above. And I often gave up on

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Nancy Davis Kho

Today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman is a writer, podcaster and ’80s music aficionado. Nancy Davis Kho writes about “the years between being hip and breaking one” and celebrates midlife with humor, heart, and a really good beat. This is a big week for Nancy! She just launched her new book yesterday. It is called THE THANK-YOU PROJECT: Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a

What’s on your bookshelf?

My idea of total relaxation is plopping myself by a body of water (ocean, lake, river, bathtub…I’m not fussy) and immersing myself in a good book. While I truly appreciate a good chic lit novel, I’m also partial to self-help, personal and professional growth, devotionals, and historic fiction. And don’t underestimate the power of the occasional beach read (a.k.a. bodice

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 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?

How to support an indy author

So many of you—my clients, readers, family, and friends—have asked how you can help with my book’s success. I thank you for being so thoughtful and generous. Your support means the world to me! One immediate way you can help is to write a book review for Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Goodreads. Reviews can be a tremendous help in

Party like it’s 2019!

As you know, Wonder-FULL (my latest book) officially launched last month. And those of you who know me know I love a good party. So party…we did! 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

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Annie Meehan

I spent last week working in Las Vegas with a fellow speaker and author. This #RealLifeWonderWoman wows me with her energy and sparkle. She possesses a can-do attitude and zest for connecting with people wherever they’re at. Oh, and she’s not afraid to don a pineapple onesie and work the conference room floor. Annie is real. Annie is authentic. And
