Are Your Current Stories Serving You?


For as long as I can remember, I’ve been telling a story that doesn’t serve me.

At least not any longer.

The story is this: I’m a behind-the-scenes type of gal who gets her kicks from supporting others. In other words, I’m not a leader.

The Upside Of Office Politics

The Upside of Office Politics

Sometimes my clients start falling into a pattern, and it gives me an opportunity to look more deeply at common challenges we all face. Lately, too many of my clients have fallen into the “victim of office politics” trap. This looks different for each person, but in every case it feels like several people you work with are conspiring against you to undermine your credibility and impact.

Missing Something? I've Got Your Ingredients Right Here.

Missing Something?

We need each other.

There’s a lot of talk in the self-actualization space about masculine energy and feminine energy. When I first heard about this concept I got very tied up in worrying about which one I was using and whether or not I was doing it “right.”

*I wrote this blog post years ago for my personal blog. It is a good reminder for me now as I'm working on the third novel in my Young Adult series, THE PAST LIVES OF LOLA RAY. I hope you benefit from the message as well. 

Discipline is a concept that has been popping up for me over and over again. And it is something I have been resisting over and over again. Yesterday, during my book group someone mentioned discipline and for the first time I began to open up to the idea.

What Is Shamanism?


I wrote this blog from Pisac, Peru, where I met with shamans as research for an upcoming book Sacred Medicine, an exploration of anomalous healing. My spiritual love affair with shamanism began on my wedding day at Post Ranch Inn in 2005. I was browsing through the posh resort’s list of activities. I read through it—yoga, group meditation . . . shamanic journey. Now that sounded interesting! With no idea what a shamanic journey actually was, I thought it would make for a good story. A shamanic journey on my wedding day? Why not?

What’s Stopping You From Reaching Your Goals – You’ve Been Given The Wrong Tool

Imagine that you wanted to drive a nail into a wall. Do you think you could do it? Sure you could; if you had the right tool.

Now, let’s say — because I like you, I believe in you, and I really want you to succeed — I went out; and, with great expense and careful thought, bought you a brand new, shiny red…

What Legally Blonde Taught Me About (Not) Being A Brand

Legally Blonde

I recently became completely obsessive with Legally Blonde: Musical. Totally not still in vogue, but the Broadway show was recorded for MTV back in the day so my sister and I stayed up late one night googly-eyed and giggling over Elle, Emit and their better-developed-than-the-movie romance.

The Weakness In Strengths-Based Leadership

The Weakness in Strengths-based Leadership

I recently worked with a Vice President who was an up-and-comer in her firm’s global division. She was the “go-to” person on technical issues relating to Asian markets and she was intentionally developing her leadership style to incorporate coach, mentor and develop others in the company to work effectively with foreign partners. This was her primary career strategy until she ran into a buzz saw that threatened to leave her stuck at the VP level. It turns out that while focusing on the technical aspects of global operations, and developing employees to manage them well, she had failed to develop some of her bosses at the same time. Her “managing up” skills were weak at the executive level and she was uncomfortable with the delicate education and persuasion necessary to bring along some of her superiors.
