Work to Travel or Travel to Work?

One of my favorite things about working for myself is that I can set my own schedule. Typically, I have a tremendous amount of flexibility – though some of that does depend on the type of consulting engagement. Over the last year, I’ve ended up taking on more roles than projects, so that creates a […]

Life is Funny

Recently I had a bit of a health scare. There are similar health problems that run in my family, so there were a couple of months of good old-fashioned worry. Unsurprisingly, sometimes paranoia can get the best of you. So you may be wondering, what about that would make me say life is funny?! Occasionally […]

Variety is the Spice of Life

One of the things I love most about consulting is the variety of industries and the work I do. Fitness, pets, finances, manufacturing, you name it. I’ve worked with more than 35 clients over the last 5 years and often it’s a brand new industry for me. It’s a lot of fun – keeps me […]

Stronger Together

I recently wrapped up one of my favorite (and most challenging and demanding) consulting experiences. I actually felt a tinge of sadness about it, which is a rarity for me as I’m so used to this process by now. 35+ clients in 5 years, this is par for the course. But this was different. I […]

I’ll Be Happy When…

It’s easy to say ”I’ll be happy when… ” What’s not as easy is staying glad once that “when” comes. In the past year, every one of us has said, “I’ll be happy when this pandemic is over.” The pandemic is taking its toll in a number of ways. Or perhaps you’ll be happy when […]

New Year! New Year? New Year.

I posted this picture 1 year ago. Little did I know what was in store. Was 2020 a “good” year? For most, unfortunately no. It was certainly a strange year though. In the midst of this uncertain year, a lot of really wonderful things happened for us too. But, this year was not without challenge, […]

Everything Looks Perfect from Far Away

We recently purchased a brand new house…a town house really, in the city. It didn’t have a kitchen, closets or lights, and we renovated 2 bathrooms. I’m not sure I would consider myself a perfectionist, personally. I know I’m not perfect and I’m ok with that. But for things, yes, I struggle when they are […]

Thankful

I have many things to be thankful for, always. Not just once each year on Thanksgiving, but every day. This year, that feeling of gratefulness is amplified. This year has been strange…challenging…stressful. But, we are so lucky. We are able to work and we are healthy. These 2 things often can be taken for granted, […]

The Ebbs and Flows of Life

Last month, I had posted about the concept of feast or famine. This month, it’s the ebbs and flows of life. As is true for many, my business slowed in late spring after the pandemic spread. I lost my largest client in April because they could no longer offer in-person classes, and so had no […]

Feast or Famine

I’m currently feeling the concept of “feast or famine” in a big way. Right now I’m feasting and I am full. Life is busy, and saying that feels like the understatement of the year. But, alas, 2020 is an odd year at best so we take what we are given. I am very grateful for […]
