I am so grateful for all the blessings and clients that I was able to work with this year! As we move into 2018 I encourage you all to take a moment and reflect on 2017. Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What is the best thing that happened in 2017?
  2. What is the worst thing that happened in 2017 and what did I learn from it?
  3. What if? – Imagine 2018 could bring whatever you want, what is it? Describe it in detail.
  4. Take a few minutes to thank the people in your life that share their lives with you.

Feel free to connect and let me know what your answers are, I would love to hear from you.


Have a safe and wonderful New Year! Thank you all for making my life a joy and my coaching practice a success! Happy New Year!

Many people are talking about happiness at work and what benefits will keep your employees happy and engaged. Check out this article on what works.

My short list is:
1. Leaders that share and live the Vision of the company with employees.
2. A safe place to work and express your ideas. Micromanagement is out!
3. Thank you -individual expression of thanks to employees for specific things they have accomplished
4. Recognize your employee strengths and stop trying to “Fix” the 20% they don’t do well and encourage the 20% that is their true strengths.

A friend recommended the book,  Younger Next Year, 

and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about what Chris Crowley and Henry S Lodge, MD recommend to make your “next third” happy and more enjoyable. If you are looking to energize yourself and plan for retirement, check out this book. It truly can change your life! I am onboard with the plan and have already started to see some good results. Learning about the effects of exercise, your attitude and socialization can save your retirement from being a “slowing down” phase of your life to being the next great adventure! Check it out!

I recommend you read the book by the founders of Live is Good Company and learn how they view life.–how-to-live-with-purpose-and-enjoy-the-ride-27887.html. Bert and John Jacobs are an inspiration and this book has many tidbits of wisdom worth learning.

Many times we  feel stress and dread going to work or thinking about an upcoming activities. In the book, they talk about how lucky they are each day to be enjoying life and bringing smiles to people. Even though they had many struggles and it took years to get the company going, they did not give up.

I encourage each of you to take their mantra of changing out the words “I have to” to “I get to” and see what effect that has on your life. Will you give it a try? Let me know how it goes!

For me, I am trying to incorporate this easy change into my daily statements. Today I get to clean my house, I get to visit with friends and tomorrow I get to go to work!

It is an exciting time and Today is the day to start investing in your future self! Good Luck and let me know what tasks you do to create your best future!
