#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

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 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

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 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 Ashley Green

Today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman had an itch…to create fabulous one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. And so she scratched that itch and made a sweet and quirky chair for her family home. But her itch didn’t go away. “Before I knew it, I found myself scouring dark alleys for abandoned chairs, rummaging through the fabric bins at the craft stores, and staying up late until

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Lindsey Jones

It was at the first night of a conference in Las Vegas at a party on the rooftop of the Palms when I met Lindsey, today’s #RealLifeWonderWoman. We chatted over canapés and Prosecco. I learned that she’s been married for 12 years to an active duty Marine, SSgt named Bryan, who is a GySgy select. (For you non-military friends, that is
