Get Outside Your Comfort Zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch I watch my kids grow outside their comfort zones every day. It’s part of growing up and developing into a young adult.

How to grow into your talents

I recently wrote about the importance of taking the time to apply what you’re learning. Learning is the way to grow as a person and a business owner, but if you’re not actually putting that new knowledge into practice, there’s really no reason for the learning in the first place.

Be the Light in Someone’s Life

Kindness is one of those things that we forget too often. When we’re angry or frustrated, or just don’t understand someone else’s life or viewpoint, we forget to stop and put ourselves in their shoes. This can lead to misunderstandings and miscommunication that impacts both parties well beyond that difficult interaction. This year, I’m committed … Continued

The Start of Football Season

What better way to celebrate football season than a trip north, where the weather really feels like fall. I’ve said it before: One of my favorite perks of my job is being able to work mobilly and to be able to support a lifestyle where my husband and I can travel and do things for … Continued
