Work/Life Tip: listen to your “hum”

I’m on a flight from Detroit back to Nashville and just watched Shonda Rhime’s TED Talk “Embrace Everything.” Wow. Just wow. Please watch it. This. Is. Everything. If it doesn’t make you hum, don’t do it. And what’s the hum? It’s just love. Mind blown. She’s also an incredible speaker. You can’t help but be… Continue reading Work/Life Tip: listen to your “hum”

Work/Life Tip: Over-Communicate. No really, Over-Communicate!

And when you think you have already over-communicated, over-communicate some more.  Trust me on this one.  Don’t assume everyone knows where you are, or what you’re doing.  Because I promise you, they don’t.

Work/Life Tip – The Power of Self Motivation

As I’ve begun this commitment to 365 days of happiness, I am discovering that some days I sort of have to fake it.  I HATE the expression “fake it until you make it” but in this circumstance it’s so true.  I want to be dynamic, I want to be engaging, I want to be powerful… Continue reading Work/Life Tip – The Power of Self Motivation

Work/Life Tip – There’s No Place Like Home

I’m in Chicago with a good friend and colleague to teach a two day business development course.  It’s a hotel I’ve been to about a trillion times, but it feels different this time.  I have a little piece of home with me.  It’s the first time I’ve been here with a VIDEO MONITOR.  This is… Continue reading Work/Life Tip – There’s No Place Like Home
