When All the Puzzle Pieces Fit Together

I will often be the first person to admit that I never thought I’d be the founder of a non-profit, let alone one that focuses on supporting and empowering women.

Cultivating a Sense of Calm

The most accessed resource I have ever created–in both downloadable and podcast format–is called the 7 Tips for Calm. I created it in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. I remember being in my kitchen, shortly after the lockdowns began, observing how calm I felt in the midst of this “once in a lifetime” event. And then I thought “OH! I KNOW HOW TO DO THIS.”

Daring to Be Big

My father nicknamed me ‘big girl’ from as far back as I can remember. I was the apple of his eye. His mini-me. I would hold the flashlight, be his side-kick in his work shop, and thought he was the smartest, kindest man on the planet.

How Writing Helped Me Remember I’m a Human Being, Not a Human Doing

Think of yourself as a child, maybe 5-7 years old. What were the activities you participated in because it sparked joy for you? What did you reach for because it was something that brought you a sense of creativity, imagination, and play?

Yes, Even Introverts Can Build Empires

Women are superheroes. Period. From being caregivers to leaders to everything-in-betweeners, there is so much women do that goes unnoticed and unappreciated. This lack of appreciation became even more pronounced during the pandemic when women disproportionately were expected to become teachers, nurses, and career sacrificers to take care of their families.

Lessons in Financial Wellness

I learned only one thing about money when I was growing up and it was that there was never enough of it. At an early age, I understood what evictions and repossessions were, probably long before I could even pronounce the words correctly.

In Support of Empathy

What if our first response to someone else’s expression of pain (or any emotion for that matter) was simply, “I believe you.”? Humans are biologically wired for connection. Without it, we die. Empathy is an essential element in establishing and maintaining connection.

A Note to Women About Permission Slips

Rules have reasons, as I often tell my kids. And just because you don’t like them doesn’t mean you don’t have to follow them. They’re designed to keep us safe, to account for others that exist around us, and to maintain societal expectations. There are processes to challenge and possibly change them. But they are what they are.

“I Don’t Know” is Your Superpower

We all know them: the people who spend a lot of time and energy trying to tell you how much they know. Self-declared experts with the typical communication style that leads with “I’m so awesome. Have I told you how awesome I am?” Translation: “I know everything and I’ve done it all.”
