The Whole Truth

These shoes are amazing for so many reasons… but the idea of walking in them hurts me. Kudos to those who can… I prefer a platform or wedge with sass. Yet, when I look at this picture I am drawn to it. Is this what success looks like? Maybe to some. There…

Life’s a Beach

Let’s face it, sometimes life’s a beach… and some summers are better than others. And if you live north of the 49th parallel (which a majority of Canada and Northern US citizens do) then you are well aware that summer is a short season. Summer in parts of North America is 90…

Don’t listen to what they say – you most certainly can, and should!

It’s said you can’t go back. I am here to say you most certainly can, and should, go back. If you have read Frock Off: Living Undisguised you know that life as a child was challenging. My parents struggled with even the basics in life. That said, I do have some very happy memories…

Is this what you want?

How many times have you been asked what you want only to respond with what you don’t want? The distinction between what you want and what you don’t want is one each of us must face. If you believe in the law of attraction, then you understand the importance of stating what…

Everything is Everything…or is it?

Everything is everything. Translation – it’s all good or it is as it is. No it’s not. Not all the time! How often do we say it’s all good, fine or okay when really what we feel is beaten up, freaked out, isolated or overwhelmed? I believe that when we state falsely,…

What if you have only a thousand?

What if you only had one thousand tomorrows left to live? A thousand tomorrows (1000 days) equals 2.74 years, 24,000 hours, 1,440,000 minutes or 86,400,000 seconds. What if you only had a thousand tomorrows? Would it be enough? Tomorrow is abstract – never spent and yet we bank on it, as though…

The Side Hustle to Entrepreneurship!

For some it started with a lemonade stand. For others, it was newspaper delivery or babysitting. However it began … you were likely doing the side hustle from an early age. What’s a side hustle, you ask? Side hustling is a term that refers to work you do outside of your full-time…

Committed or Interested

So my dear, you say you’re committed. You say you are dedicated and will do whatever it takes and yet, you waiver in the face of adversity or worse you bolt! Is this harsh? Maybe. Or maybe it’s the truth. The kind of truth that wakes you at night. Or the kind…

Women BREAKING the Rules!

I have a crush on women who move beyond their circumstances, overcome great odds, old stories, stereotypes, ageism, cultural restraints and simply put BS – Belief Systems. Being an entrepreneur can be rough, dirty, heartbreaking and taxing at times. It takes big girl panties or big boy shorts. That is why successful…

To Sip or Not???

Are you a Sip and Click kind of person? If you have not heard of this phenomenon, it may be because you have never sipped and clicked, or you had but had no idea this was, in fact, a thing. Oh, and if you have participated in a sip and click while…

Be Obsessed!

The truth is no matter how fabulous your product or service is, or how much you KNOW it can help others not everyone will like you or want to work with you. Yes, it’s harsh, but also true, and it’s something we all need to learn early on in business. My advice…

The BIG Kahuna – Success

I have found that life consistently provides us all with endless opportunities to say ‘yes’, even in the absence of proof. Some opportunities are easy to say yes to, and others are not. Such was the case this past week. I was in Mexico with my husband, and decided to learn how…

I touched a nerve!

Last month I posted a blog about the importance of being present in all we do. The importance of access, clarity, community, and accountability. Of going, growing, learning and the importance of attending live events. The blog addressed the lack of human interaction that online programs offer. They aren’t a ‘one perfect solution’…

Settle for More!

How will you remember 2016? Will it be your blessing or your curse? Of late I have seen so many social media posts about how ready people are to leave 2016 behind them, implying it was a curse. And although I have witnessed many tough and trying obstacles, I have also seen…

Pretty Paper or a Sow’s Ear?

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do it will never be enough? Or if you could just learn X, you would be happier, more fulfilled, and successful? Or, the worst, that you are not smart enough and therefore, don’t deserve it. I know I have, and it is complete…

I was so wrong!

There she stood in the back of the room. From where I stood she seemed to be trying to press herself into the wall. From time to time she would look over at me, and then quickly avert her gaze. When all but her and I remained in the room, she began…

What’s Your Ace?

Having returned recently from one of our events, I again noticed a common thread – worth, or lack thereof. And I found myself wondering why some moments or experiences are so pivotal in our lives, that we forever accept them as truth, even when they’re holding us back and keeping us stuck.…

Schooled by a Six-Year-Old!

  This isn’t just some catchy title – it’s the TRUTH! I was, in fact, schooled by a six-year-old. Schooled on branding, and the importance of appearance. His nine-year-old older brother refers to it as representing! I consider myself self-aware. And up until the moment, I felt I had a pretty good…

I confess, I did do it!

Why, why, why do we forget that being a human means falling, and getting back up. And at times, it means picking out the bits of gravel we may have gathered in our fall from grace. It also means seeing the humor in the lesson, and sometimes being just plain goofy! Not…

Just stop it!

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the word ‘beget’ is a verb, and is in the top 20% of words used today. Interesting, since it has a long history.  The simple definition of beget:  to cause (something) to happen or exist. I love words that have history and substance – words that can…
