It's a new year and it's a new day. But it's the same stuff right now. It's just a new year. In the past, a new year generally meant new beginnings. You reset. It was this big sigh of relief. But I think right now, it's different. In my reading over the holidays, I came across something. I decided to have my first life statement. And I even went so far as to get a customized wall hanging...

We ended this decade on such a high note. I began 2020 with a lot of optimism. I didn't think anything could get in our way; the marketplace was just roaring, and at this amazing speed. Not only Wall Street, but also Main Street, they were just hitting records. But by the 1st of March and as March unfolded, I'm attending a board meeting at Brady Ware, where I'm on the board of directors to discuss corona; not the bee...

You've got to be a forward thinker. You've got to be proactive if you want to move forward and get through the "what ifs" when they come. Forward thinking is not always easy. It might not be your personality. So you've got to at least have somebody on your team who's a forward thinker, who can push you to do more, think bigger. In this episode, I speak with Jill Frey, President / CEO at Cummins Facility Serv...

So many people think success is they've made it to the C-suite. The C-suite is not the only success that is out there in your career in business, so I want to talk about that in this episode. What might be a better definition of success? How about this (not mine, but well worth sharing) - "Put your heart, your mind, your intellect, and your soul, even into every small act." That is a secret of success. Anythi...

So many people think success is they've made it to the C-suite. The C-suite is not the only success that is out there in your career in business, so I want to talk about that in this episode. We all have different career goals to achieve success. There's nothing right or wrong, and success is measured differently by all of us. Unfortunately, we tend to obsess over our goals and our career. Most of us do. All the ca...

What does successful leadership look like? There's so many definitions out there, but we're well aware we're desperate for good leadership. When you look at successful leadership, you look at people who are pretty open and honest; good communication skills; they connect with that team member; they encourage personal and professional growth; they don't just think that they are the only ones that should be learning an...

"When you have a story — the right story — everything changes. Customers become evangelists. Employees fully engage. Decision-making simplifies. Innovation accelerates. And marketing costs go down." That's what you find when you go to Storyforge's website. I had the honor of interviewing Haley Boehning, Co-Founder and Principal of Storyforge. "We call it a meaningful story."

"Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt" - William Shakespeare Self-doubt is fed by your inner voice and, of course, is self-inflicted. This podcast is very personal, which is probably why it took me a while to write it. If there's one struggle that I have had in life, it is probably self-doubt. The continual questioning that ends up paralyzing me, which results in me do...

Finding and owning your voice. Strengthening your inner confidence. It's your identity expressing itself. It's your personality, and it's your individual message to the world. I believe that there is power in that feminine voice, and it's missing in too many conversations. From the business environment - your office, the marketplace, the boardroom, to politics, and in our homes. If we are there, it's so crucial ...

It's everywhere; books, coaches, seminars on the why, the what, the who, and the how. It's really, in my mind, almost overkill. But the sad truth is, with all of that help, we are desperately looking for leadership that is authentic. In our society, in politics, to corporate America, to education systems, within our homes, within professional organizations, authentic leadership is really tough to find. Authentic leadership ...

Authentic leadership is really tough to find. Plus, it's hard to be an authentic leader. Authentic leadership works on the principle that leaders can prove their legitimacy, their credibility, by nurturing sincere relationships with whoever they are leading. Notice I did not say "I am the leader, follow me!" It isn't about the title you finally get. "Get over it. Do as I say." It really is nurturing sincere ...

As the title states, I am talking about a financial guide for women. It's mind boggling that women today take financial planning and put it in a drawer; maybe a closet; under the rug. You would be amazed. It's not something that they really are at the helm of. Why is that? We're dominating in so many ways. We're educating ourselves further than men. We are definitely dominating marketplace, where we're starting ...
