The Catnip and Carrots waiting room is like Cheers for our rabbit rescue family. Anytime you walk through those doors and sit on those benches, you are bound to meet someone who knows your name, even if it’s just from interaction in our incredibly supportive online community. An afternoon in July of 2014, I sat… Continue reading Ella and Monkey
Before having two rabbits of my own, I did not consider myself an “animal person.” You may have heard clippings from this yarn before. Here’s some of my companion animal history… When I was born, my parents had a rescue dog Bonzo, named after John Bonham. I don’t remember her but I hear she was… Continue reading Before
A few weeks ago, I was asked to give a talk on organization to a group of entrepreneurs in the wellness lifestyle industry. In pure irony, the notes I prepared for this talk look like a scrambled ramble of ideas. The organizer appears messy but gets it all done. Here are some gems from my… Continue reading Big Picture Master

No matter what I was reading or writing, no matter who was visiting my dorm room or apartment, those DVDs were on repeat.

I said we would talk more then (and I silently promised to turn my damn phone off at our next visit—no pointless distractions). I walked out of your front door, it was… Continue reading It’s been a Year.

I’m stepping in and up, creating opportunities for growth in the day-job realm, going big in Rescue, arms locked with the most dedicated team, and establishing weekly classes for the summer to share our incredible wellness products. I’ve stepped in fully,… Continue reading More about Masterclass
People sure seem to find a lot to complain about. Now, I can get all cliché-crazy here (You can’t have a positive life with a negative mind!) but I’ll try to keep it my voice, as much as possible, today. Through Rescue, I don’t hear many complaints from the volunteer team, but when I do… Continue reading Take Action
Every personal development book, lecture, course or coaching session deals with relationships in some form: the relationship with have with ourselves, with our environment and with other people. Even the supreme introverts have interaction with others in some capacity. JD Salinger had to walk to the Post Office to collect his mail in Cornish, N.H. … Continue reading Find your Tribe
