THE WORLD'S BEST COOK Continue
My mother was the world's best cook. I'm pretty sure that there are many of us who feel that way, and I pity those who do not, or cannot. Before my Mom attained to this very prestigious honor, my paternal Grandmother held the title. When my Dad went overseas during WWII, Mom moved in with her in-laws, and the tutorial began. You can imagine all the psychological tension that such an arrangement entailed for both teacher and student. Further complicating things for…

“I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.” — Banksy

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… Continue

“Are you any good at what you do?” This is a question I ask my clients regularly – particularly when they are discouraged or frustrated with the lack of results they are getting.
“What are you doing to master your skills?” This is the next question I ask – not only of my clients, but I ask myself this question on a regular basis, too.
I take great pride in my commitment to professional development and continuous learning. I… Continue

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…

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…

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. Continue
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…

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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?

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%?
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.

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… Continue
