Showing Up for Those You Love

I’m going to ask you a question that I want you to take very seriously… Please don’t just brush this off. Deal? Here goes… Can you show up in the best way for the people and things you care about most if you’re unhealthy? Let me quickly define unhealthy since it’s such a broad term. [...]

Making Your Vision a Reality

Yesterday, I laid the groundwork for writing out your vision for the next 5 - 10 years.  Now, let’s talk about making that a reality by pulling back to things you can do now… First, in order for you to make that 5 - 10 year vision a reality, you’re going to need to build [...]

Back from Sedona With Some Important Questions

Janell and I are back from an amazing - albeit short - trip to Sedona, AZ. It was an amazing experience! Besides the beautiful setting - we were in Boynton Canyon - our “conference” was incredible.  As I mentioned last week, it was a couples retreat… A “two-day workshop [that} gives you and your spouse [...]
