What To Do With My Heavy Expectations (+ Making Good Stuff Happen)


If you’ve ever met me (or if you’ve read more than three blog posts) you know I want to make good stuff happen. I want to drink green juice, fit in a good workout, write something mind-blowingly good, catch up with friends, sign a new client, meditate, and give a presentation to a group of smart-hearted women.

Bring Your Whole Self To Work


I recently gave a TEDx talk in which I reflected on what I’ve seen and learned over the past fifteen years – researching, writing, and speaking about essential human experiences in the workplace.  As I addressed in this talk, I believe that for us to thrive professionally, especially in today’s world, we must be willing bring our whole selves to the work that we do.  And, for the groups, teams, and organizations that we’re a part of to truly succeed, it’s essential to create an environment where people feel safe to bring all of who they are to work.

Great Lessons We Can Take From Southwest Airlines


If you are one of those people who were sent a thank you package by Southwest Airlines, then consider it not only to have received a great gift but a learning experience as well. Upon receiving the package, the first thing that one may notice is that it is rather a large package that you will surely take notice of.

How We Run Meetings, Get Personal, Get Down To Business, Get It Done

Team Meeting

Being a virtual company is mostly all great — the freedom, working in your yoga pants with a puppy on your lap — or from a hotel room, solitude to create. And… it has challenges. #TeamDanielle is made up of a core team of 8 women + key service providers. The biggest challenge for me with being a virtual business was our team meetings.

Who Is Your Ideal Client? (You Might Be Surprised...)

holding the flashlight in the cave

I love Aha moments… more than potatoes mashed with a pound of real butter… more than snoring puppies sleeping soft-belly up… more than baby violet crocuses punching through the last bit of spring snow.

A few weeks ago I was coaching a client through some business “muck,” and I asked her to write an ideal client profile.

The See -Through Teacher

“Face to face with my students, only one resource is at my immediate command: my identity, my selfhood, my sense of this “I” who teaches – without which I have no sense of the “Thou” who learns.”

~ Parker Palmer, The Courage to Teach

I so wish I had Mr. Palmer’s wisdom when, as a 28-year-old just-published author, I started teaching self-care workshops and, later, retreats. I spent my first years certain if I was older or could have a mystical vision or a Ph.D. (I know, talk about extremes), then I could really serve the thousands of women who were showing up at my events.

Who Is Your Mirror?

Who Is Your Mirror?

One of the ways we measure our progress is to look for feedback from others. This starts out when we are little.

I recently heard about a study of babies who were learning to crawl. Researchers created a raised surface that included a hole or drop-off section. They covered the cut-out section with Plexiglas to see whether the babies would perceive the danger of falling and stop crawling or if they would crawl over the drop-off section despite the illusion of danger.

Fearlessness: The Key To Effective Feedback

Fearlessness: The Key to Effective Feedback

When you think about it, giving and receiving feedback is pretty much all communication is. You talk. I listen. Then I respond to what you said, providing you feedback on how well I heard you. You listen and respond to me, etc. This continuous feedback loop usually just looks like two people having a conversation – until one of us calls it “feedback” and then we get all skittish and nervous and – afraid.

Crossing The Belief Gap And Changing Your Life

The Law of attraction, thinking positively and changing our lives is centered on one thing and that is changing our beliefs.

We were taught to think positively and to make positive statements. These statements were to be heard by the universe around us and to be made real. This manner is successful for others and can be successful for you but not everyone. There are people who struggle with this daily. They work hard each day, but it seems that nothing they do is enough and that the universe is not on their side. I can relate. For many years, this is what I felt. Even if I filled myself with positive statements and shared this with the universe, I was not getting what I wanted. I felt that the universe was ignoring me because no matter how much I shared and positive statements I made, things were not going as how I wanted them to be.
