WHO’S IN YOUR CIRCLE?

Ever wonder how or why you get stuck in the same place time and time again, surrounded by the same type of people? This has happened to me more than once until I leveled up my awareness. Now this is not to say it does not still happen on occasion, it most certainly does, but I recognize it sooner and am able to act, righting my oval back into the circle it is meant to Read More

Old habit or new habit, how will we network?

As Minnesota starts to open back up (with restrictions of course) and more people are getting vaccinated. Will we find it exciting to go back to the way of networking as it was a year ago? We have been creating new habits these past months. What once was normal business behavior to set out to a networking meeting a couple times a week has turned into screen time in small boxes. It takes weeks to Read More

Reflecting on history for direction in 2021

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio from Pexels Before we can move forward we have to review the past. This keeps emotional wellness alive and well, it is especially important considering what we all went through in 2020. Our brains tend to remember the bad things more often and more vividly. So if you just rely on you own memories you may come up with more bad times then good. The beginning of any 12 month cycle is a distance Read More

Coffee habit, breaking it!

Coffee signals MORNING to me, it’s time to get going, put on your shoes, get out and meet with people and get the job done. I love the smell of coffee, love the taste (black if you please), love the way it warms my hands, and wakes me up. But over the past months I haven’t been putting on my shoes to get the job done, I have been pulling out my chair and staring Read More

Finding Gratitude in Life

Are you now where you thought you would be when you chose your career? Back in 1982 I was working with the local police department getting ready to apply for a position as a policeman (woman). I did all the training, reading and testing, practiced at the gun range and ran track. How different my life turned out. While we think we have a plan, there is God’s plan and his plan for me was Read More

The “A” Guests and the “A” Team Meetings in a Perfect World

In a perfect world we would have only the “A” players of family in for the holidays and only hold or attend the “A” meetings that we scheduled or deemed important. So many articles on the lack of holiday gatherings and the abundance of video gatherings this year got me to thinking. All of this can be just too much. I reminisce of just a year ago when the articles were full of rantings about Read More

Today is Absolutely Beautiful

Looking out the window and seeing how absolutely beautiful it is today. We have been going through some difficult and interesting times with covid; shut down, shelter in place, limited opening, tables of 4, outside only, phones and visits through glass. We have been through furloughs, layoffs, working from home, part time employment, unemployment and adventures in independent startups. Each week it changes. More and more of us are overwhelmed, depressed and feeling anxiety just Read More

Back in the saddle, at least for now.

Keeping in check with daily activity, wellness, motivation and education can be overwhelming when you continue to be “trying” to do it all. We have to break it down and take it in small chunks. The habits that we have are strong so if you are currently living with bad habits it is easy to continue with them. The problem is they don’t particularly make you feel very good. How in the world do you Read More
