Feeling Like an Imposter? – Play the Film!

March Madness is my favorite time of year. Not only does it coincide with the freshness of spring, but it also brings about additional feelings of excitement and possibility, seeing dreams come true and hard work pay off. ​While watching this year, I came across the Under Armour commercial below, and I knew I had to post about it. ​

Your Vulnerability is Not Unprofessional

In talking with my social media writer Lindsey Gough about potential newsletter subjects, she said something that struck me as valuable and I wanted to share it here. She said: “Your vulnerability is not unprofessional.” ​Oftentimes as leaders we want to present a strong, confident persona, so we avoid getting personal or showing vulnerability. But Lindsey is right, showing vulnerability

Diversify Your Network

As Black History Month comes to a close, I want to talk about a strategy to diversify our lives beyond February. Hopefully we’ve all been intentionally reading books by Black authors, consuming media by Black creatives, and/or educating ourselves on pieces of Black history that were absent from our schooling. These things are excellent, and important. But I’d like to

Work-life Balance, Blend, or Blur?

I have struggled with work-life balance challenges long before COVID. If you ask my husband, he’ll tell you I still am. What can I say, I’m a work in progress! These days the lines between home and work are really blurry as people work from home, continue quarantining, and many people still juggling home school/remote learning for their children. I

I was talking to a good friend recently, and she shared a bit of wisdom she had heard. It resonated with me, so I wanted to share it with you. ​ Help is only help if it is perceived as help, otherwise it is viewed as judgement. ​ And no one likes to feel judged or told what to do.

Groundhog Day…Again

Have you ever had the feeling of waking up, and all grogginess disappears as you remember today is the day you’re going to Disney World? You have no desire to roll over and go back to sleep. Rather, you feel the excitement and anticipation and spring out of bed. While work may not generate the same enthusiasm of Disney world,

Drop a Few Balls and Learn to Juggle

I probably have 13 different goals / habits on my list that I want to achieve for 2021. ​ How many times have we started off in January trying to accomplish all of the changes we desire at once? At least for me, that strategy has never worked. ​ When your focus is divided 13 different ways, you can’t give

Hop Off the Hamster Wheel of Life by Setting an Intention for the Year

Last week, I talked about cleaning out your fridge to make more space. This week, I wanted to talk about what you want to create with that new-found space. Something that has become popular in recent years is selecting a one-word intention for the year. Not being clear about your intentions may feel like you are running on the hamster

STOP in the Name of Results Before You Break Your Resolutions

Have you ever cleaned out your refrigerator before making a big grocery store trip? Or set aside a bag of your kid’s toys to donate before a present exchange? Making space for new things is second nature when we can see the physical lack of room in front of us. If you don’t make space, there is literally no where

Ditch the Goal Setting

As New Years approaches, all of our feeds will soon be filled with goal setting ideas, new year new me posts, and plans for how to stick with our 2021 intentions. This is our yearly tradition – make goals in January that at least one third of us will have abandoned by March. I have an idea this year. Why
