“Mom, Your Job is Really COOL.”

At the start of the new year, the topic of “vision” is always top of mind. This year, personally, aside from vowing to lose the extra pandemic/quarantine weight, last week I shared with you the new vision statement I wrote for my company (“To bring greater peace and joy to the world by helping more […]

My 2021 Mindset Shift

I hope that your new year's celebration kicked off 2021 to a great start! I'm not sure how I saw far fewer people than usual between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day but still managed to eat just as many Christmas cookies if not more this time. (I would try to deny it, but any of […]

Just One Step to More Influence AND Happiness? Yep – Here’s How

Have you ever seen a feeding frenzy in the shark tank at the aquarium?

My New Favorite (not-very-Christmasy) Cookies

First and foremost, those of you who are celebrating, I hope you're all having a very healthy and happy Hanukkah!     I didn't light candles this weekend, but I did love spending an afternoon baking Christmas cookies with my mother. In addition to some traditional favorites like hazelnut snowballs coated in powdered sugar and […]

Get Inspired on Giving Tuesday!

In a year where there have been so many challenges, Giving Tuesday gives us all the opportunity to show gratitude for all we have by helping the non-profit organizations that provide such valuable services for those who are less fortunate.     I am proud to have so many non-profit leaders as clients and guests […]

Don’t judge a podcast by its… cover?

Has anyone ever told you, “Don't judge a book by its cover”? Well, I confess, I almost did, but I'm sure glad I thought twice — and you will be too!     My guest for this week's “Speaking to Influence” episode is Jonathan Rivers, the CTO of Fortune Magazine. When I first connected with […]
