How to detox from information overload

I'm a voracious reader with a knack for immediate action. Which means whether I’m reading self-help, inspiration or a biography, I can’t help but translate it into what it means for my life. I walk away from every article or book wondering “What does this mean for me?...

What would happen if you just picked up and left?

Last time we were home for Christmas my in-laws booked plane tickets to Florida on a Wednesday and left town Friday. I watched them get their lodging and rental car booked, pack and prepare their year-end business stuff. They left for a week long vacation in 2 days....

It's that - sometimes annoying - time of year when all we hear about is if someone is or isn't making a new year's resolution. For the record mine is always to be more kind and less judgmental. Just as much as I hear what people want to do in the new year I hear what...

In your relationship there are no neutral actions

I spend a lot of time with Jina which - even if we weren't biz partners - is great for me! I get to absorb all of her knowledge that she shares with equal parts conviction and facts. I can't say it enough. This girl has changed my life. One thing she's taught me that...
