Don’t get me wrong—there’s lots of activity happening at headquarters but I do not feel busy. Last week, a dear friend posted a graphic on Facebook, prompting scrollers to describe her life using only GIFs. I have a GIF obsession, so of course I was into this. For this friend, I posted a Green Acres… Continue reading I’m Not Busy
Summer Denise is a legend in her own mind. I go back to work Tuesday and by Wednesday afternoon, it will feel like we never left… but for the first time in my recollection, I really feel restored, renewed and rested. Yes, it is possible to have two months off from the day job and… Continue reading Back to Ms. B
Adulting… you probably saw 10 memes about adulting already today. We laugh about it, sometimes lament about it… but adulting is what we are “supposed to” be doing (I write this just feet away from my guinea pigs, so at least we can say we have our own brands of adulting). Of the many things… Continue reading Adulting: Insurance?!
We do a lot of talking and thinking about our goals, our “gets”, our dreams and wishes… and we say these are things we want, conditions we want to experience, situations we want to manifest. But do you even remotely put in the work? You might think you do. But let’s break it down. Let’s… Continue reading You say you want it…
Get ready for one of the most ridiculous anecdotes I’ve ever shared with you. You know how there’s always one kid who accidentally calls the teacher “mom” and then gets teased about it for at least the rest of the school year? In 14 years of teaching, I’ve never been called mom. But about 6… Continue reading Mr. Denise
My coach says, “You will never outperform your self-image.” Her coach says that too. He probably got that wisdom from his coach. Now, I’m passing it down to you. You will never outperform your self-image. That maxim does not just apply to professional success; it applies to how you feel on a daily basis. A… Continue reading Wellness, Always.
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
In late June 2014, I wrote a note in my phone of three simple “I am” statements to set the tone for my summer. Pushing aside the millions of things to get done and ways to make two months off from the day job count, I set these “I am” statements at the core of… Continue reading Retreat Yourself
I don’t know if there’s a name for it… that experience where you’re driving but your mind is completely somewhere else and you kind of shake your head and snap back to the present moment, having virtually no recollection of getting where you are, like that total autopilot moment… that’s August for me, every year. … Continue reading Autopilot
Gabby tells us to step in fully. And I’ve been doing that, every day. 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
