Baby Boomer Women- Finally Having Your Cake and Eating it Too

Many of us in the Baby Boomer generation know what it is like to see life go by too quickly. We wish that we could just slow down time so that we could savor the moments. If you are a business owner like myself maybe you too wish that you didn’t have to work so many hours. Maybe you want to create a deeper meaning in your life and business so that your business is an extension of a life lived on purpose. And you also want to be feel financially abundant! You want to have your cake and eat it too. Our careers or businesses have been born and sometimes fizzled in lieu of something else. In the blink of an eye our babies have left the nest to start their lives anew. Loved ones have left us-some far too soon. Some of us have become Grandparents. Often our dreams have been usurped by responsibilities and duty. We wish we had more time and energy to revel in the nuances of everyday life instead of being pulled into the undertow of making a living. We wish that we had more time for our art or writing or spirituality or taking better care of our bodies or……..(fill in the blanks). Those  of us who worked hard to create a business or career that would support our family are beginning to want something more. We may love our businesses but we know that there is something missing…….something very important! We want ourselves back! We want to live our lives with intentionality! We want to start honoring the essence of who...

What Do You Stand For?

If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything. . ~Peter Marshall   As we get older it often becomes clearer that there are certain things that are important to us that may have been trumped by responsibilities and survival in our earlier years. Busy building careers and/or raising families, there was little time left  to reflect on what is important to us on a deeper level. Studies have shown that having a purpose in life leads to a more fulfilling and happy life. When you are aligned with your core values and purpose in life, you are more in the flow. You are excited to wake up each day because there is something that is really important for you to do-something that sets your soul on fire. You feel as though your life matters and you truly can make a change in the world. So what holds us back? Here are some things that stop us from the full expression of ourselves and what we stand for: we are afraid of what people might think we don’t want to rock the boat we  are not used to our voices being heard we are comfortable being in the background and afraid to have the spotlight shine on us we had to stay “invisible” because we were in an abusive household we don’t feel worthy we don’t believe people will listen we are overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin we are afraid Sometimes we hold back because we don’t believe that we can make enough of a difference to as many people as we would like to...

Three Strategies to Supercharge Your Business

I coach many entrepreneurs who are stuck in their business.They want to grow but there are things that get in their way. What is interesting is that it is typically about who they are “being” in their business that keeps them stuck rather than what they are doing. It is their mindset around their challenges that block them. So I would like to propose 3 ways to get out of stuck and start soaring: Set Better Boundaries- Boundaries are important because they help us honor what is really important to us. They allow us to take charge of our time and own our value. When we respect ourselves, others will follow. I remember when I had no boundaries when I was selling Real Estate many years ago. I let my customers dictate my time, always jumping to please. I was like a puppet on a string. I ended up becoming very burnt out and resentful because I never allowed myself any time for me. I wasn’t honoring my own health and well being. What I realize looking back is that I had created this monster because I allowed it to happen instead of setting healthy boundaries. It is the difference between being proactive and reactive. Once I realized that it was up to me to take care of me, everything changed. I felt so much better about my business and it began growing effortlessly. I felt lighter, happier and less stressed. And my customers totally respected my time. I still give awesome service but not at the expense of my health and well being. I made a decision to...
