Build Your Confidence with this Important Foundation

Over the past year or so, you may have held off on asking for a promotion or raise, but now you feel like Samuel L. Jackson in The Negotiator. You may have held off on special requests because it felt selfish during a time of crisis, but now you're looking to Julia Roberts from Erin Brockovich for strength. You may have felt comfortable behind your computer screen, but now you're preparing like Mel Gibson in Braveheart to give a rousing presentation to an important group. Whether you're channeling Samuel, Julia, or Mel, you may need a dose of confidence! While it's common knowledge that confidence is one of the keys to having success in these situations, what's not so common knowledge is whether or not you have what it takes to actually be confident. In this video I share the foundation required so that confidence is no longer an illusion, but instead, a reality for you!

When You Believe Things Aren’t Fair

In work and life, you've witnessed others receive things that not everyone else has. Maybe you or others felt at times that those situations weren't fair. Well, as employees return to the office, you will see more and more of this, where some will have different accommodations than others. How will you handle this for yourself or for your team as a leader? Watch this week's video to see how fairness can be shifted.

Staying Productive When You Only Have A Few Minutes

Stressed Out Solution

There was such a great response to last week's post in which I shared a past video with my son, Ethan, so I'm back this week with another one! This time, it's with my almost 10-year old daughter, Reese, at the end of 2018. Here she shares an interesting tool for managing stress. If you haven't heard of this before, check it out and see if it works to help reduce your stress.

Just Handle It

About three years ago I grabbed my then 12-year old son, Ethan, to share how he manages stress (yes, kids have stress, too). Not only did he discover successful strategies to just handle it consistently for years, they're ideas that are 100% relevant and practical for any stressed out or burned out ADULT!

Celebrating International Dance Day

What a perfect way to end the month of foolishness by celebrating with dance! Grab a family member, a friend, or just yourself and have some fun by dancing to your favorite song and celebrating International Dance Day!

Turning Stress Into a Comedy

Stress relief can actually be a joke when you use laughter to help reduce it! Laughter has so many short and long-term health benefits and my family's favorite way to get a lot of it, is by watching stand-up comedians. Find out more in this week's video!

Embarrassment or Development?

Do you ever feel embarrassed by past work you've done? Maybe it's a project you completed when you first began your career or were new to your current position. What if someone were to ask to see it - how would you feel?

Choose to Challenge Beyond This Month

March is one of my favorite months of the year. My daughter, Reese, would say it's because it's her birthday month (LOL!). While this is of course true, it's also because it's Women's History Month. And the theme for this year's International Women's Day on March 8th was #ChooseToChallenge. But even though March is coming to an end, this effort should not! I challenge you to watch this video and find out more!
