Living Among Friends (the book)

    I'm in the process of writing a book for Boomers that want to downsize, giving them information and a decision process they might want to follow to make them happier. My focus is on "aging in community", living a shared housing or co-housing where you have an ongoing support system in friends and neighbors.

    If you have a story about downsizing, good or bad, or if you are a Boomer considering downsizing, I'd live to have your input.

    If you have questions about…

Heart Attack or Magic Beans?

More than once I have stopped by the emergency room fearing I am having a heart attack. Symptoms have included tightness or sharp pains in my chest, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, and/or a pressure sensation in my jaw.

As women, we are told to pay attention to any irregular symptoms like these and get them checked out because heart disease is the number one killer of women and can easily go…

Milestones Are Not Set in Stone

If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life. Crossing from one personal decade into another is a significant event and takes on a life of its own. Connecting with friends who are also making this transition can help focus on what you've gained over the years – memories, perspective, wisdom – rather than on what you've lost – agility, some energy, your youth!

Even though the signpost for an event may be firmly planted and…

No Need to Hibernate All Winter

Were you too busy on Super Bowl Sunday watching the commercials to notice that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil had emerged from his burrow? He saw his shadow and went back in to hibernate predicting that the blistery winter weather much of the country has been experiencing will last for another six weeks.

For many of us, winter weather does seem to drag on longer than we'd like. And being stuck at home in February and March doesn't usually lend itself to the same kind of staycation…

Are You Lying To Yourself?

Are You Lying To Yourself?

This challenge needs to be explored to achieve authenticity and living your life open, honest and with integrity.

What was YOUR response when you read this article title?  Were you excited about reading more? Were you offended or insulted? Did you become defensive or resistant reading further? Did you consider jumping to something else? And my hunch is many people jumped to something…

Leading in Tough Times!

You really had to be there. In Atlanta – where I was the day it felt like the world was coming to an end. Severe winter weather hit and the city came to a total standstill.

From a Canadian’s perspective, it was no big deal. To the people of Atlanta, it was a living hell for at least 48 hours. I have many stories I can tell – but I am choosing to speak of my experience with 2…

Keep on Growing!

I have always been an advocate (and participant) in professional development.

One of the questions I hear frequently from my clients and colleagues is ‘how do you manage to get things like that (professional development) into your busy calendar?   Continuous learning, for me, is not optional – it’s mandatory. My intention is to keep learning and become the very best at my craft.

As a professional, you’ve got to keep on growing. Things change quickly…

When Feeling Sick Becomes The New Norm

For the last few years it’s been one health challenge after another, from chronic sinus problems and a bevy of flu’s, to finding a large (benign and harmless) arachnoid cyst in my brain at the left frontal lobe. Feeling as if I’m juggling one symptom or another and drenching myself in the latest ‘miracle cures’, I have grown weary from the effort required to feel well, and instead have surrendered to the dictates of the symptom(s) de jour.

My new norm has become feeling ill. Upon…

“Tips For Handling Your Money as a Start-up!”

I often get asked how I managed to invest in my business a few years ago when I had no clients and was starting over. I know this kind of situation often feels like a ‘catch-22 for many new entrepreneurs.

Let me put a disclaimer in here right away so that you know I am not a financial planner – but I have had great mentors. And that’s why I have been able to get it together, grow my business and live a really fabulous life-style…

The Easy Way Out!

I wanted to pull back the curtain this week and share some of the challenges that I’ve been experiencing this month in my business.

I’m going to share them because I want you to understand that regardless of where you are in your business, whether it’s been a week, a month, a year, or ten, there’s going to be problems.

But first let me start this conversation with a question: ‘Have you ever wanted to take the easy way out?

Well, you know…

How to Overcome Procrastination

How to Overcome Procrastination

Are you a self-identified or is someone you know a procrastinator? True procrastination has many aspects of putting off something that one knows is necessary to achieve a desired goal. Habitual procrastinators irrationally postpone what is in their best interest to complete. Although, the procrastinator…

Are You One Of The 8%?

Are You One Of The 8%?

Approximately 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. For a fun comparison, about one-third of Americans watch the Super Bowl.

Self-improvement, or the desire for it, is a shared American obsession or hobby, yet only a fraction of people keep their resolutions. Research at the University of Scranton reveals that only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s goals.

What is your New Year’s…

What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

Many people have come to understand more about past lives and past-life regression, through Dr. Brian Weiss’ book, Many Lives Many Masters, and his frequent appearances on stage and television interviews, which includes a ‘quick’ demonstration of the benefits of a past-life regression.

For the past 100+…

Clear the Clutter!

Have you ever seen the TV show “The Hoarders”? I’ve watched it a few times and, to be honest, felt like a hoarder in my own office when I am working on an intense project. There are files, papers, pens, post-it notes, note pads, etc. all over the place. Flip chart paper is on each and every wall surface.

And I’ve also felt like a hoarder when the year is well underway and I take a look at my in-box on my computer. Have any of you ever felt that…

The 7 Habits of Happy Entrepreneurs!

‘How can you be so happy all the time?’ is a question I often get asked. Well, it’s not that I’m happy ALL the time – but, I can say, ……..most of the time. I believe that being, and feeling, happy is a habit.

We all know people who make ‘being miserable’ a daily habit, right? That’s not the way I choose to live my life nor is it the way I choose to run my business.

Here are my 7 Habits which lead to me being a happy…

It’s OK to be Intimidated!

It’s ok to BE intimidated – but it’s not ok to STAY intimidated. This is an expression I heard time and time again from my mentor, Lou Tice. And it was brilliant advice.

I was a guest speaker recently at an event where I was scheduled to speak at the end of the day. That, alone, could intimidate just about anyone. But, the other piece to this is that my presentation was following some of the big names in the industry. And you can bet that I was intimidated at the start of the day.
