Welcome to Thriving in the Chaos. This is the last episode of my inaugural season! Thank you so much to those of you who took the time to listen to my podcast! In this episode, I'm tackling boundaries. This is a big trigger for me and I'll explain why.

Welcome to Thriving in the Chaos! I've mentioned in various podcasts as a host and guest as well as blog posts and workshops how important it is to own your financials. In fact, I even have a service called own your financials. But what does that mean? How do you do that? Why should you do that?

This will be a very short episode this week but only because it's probably the most important so I want you to listen to the whole...

Welcome to Thriving in the Chaos! This is part 2 of Financials for Non Financial people! Last episode I discussed the balance sheet. This episode, I'm going to dig into the profit and loss, or P&L (also known as the income statement as well). Let's get rolling...

Welcome to Thriving in the Chaos! I took a little of my own advice and unplugged for a little while. Now I'm back, refreshed and ready to go! I thought it might be a good time to dig a little into financial statements. Don't worry, this is financial statements for non-financial folks!

Ohhhh unplugging!!! What a luxury right? Shouldn't be. In this 2021 recovery from a pandemic, it's downright mandatory! Seriously, 2020 was obviously crazy and we all were terribly stressed out. 2021 presents us with opportunities to recover from that but it seems like we're all trying to recover AND get ahead at the cost of our own sanity and health. So what alleviates that a bit? Finding time to unplug - whether that&...

Founders need to take care of themselves in order to avoid or at least mitigate burn-out. It’s so easy to get so involved in and on your business that you forget that one of your greatest assets is yourself. One way to tackle it is to really define a work-life balance. But let’s look at this whole work-life balance for a moment. Should it be a balance? Or is it something else?  What is the difference between BALANCE and HARMONY?

Let's talk about outsourcing!  When?  who?  How?  These are all questions everyone has as we contemplate outsourcing to allow ourselves the bandwidth to do the things we do best and allow ourselves to work on our business as well as in it.

Welcome to Thriving in the Chaos!  I thought I'd take an episode to remind us all to remember to include humor in our lives.  And in our lives means both in our personal lives and in our professional lives as well.

You may have heard about the study years ago that babies & kids laugh 400 times a day and adults only 15.  Only 15!!

Sometimes you're just at that moment when you say "well that happened!" and then laug...

So we're halfway through 2021.  Did you have a plan for 2021?  Well, before we get to the current year plan, do you have an over all business plan at all? Having a solid business plan is key to success.  Why do you need one?  You may be thinking, hey I'm not looking for funding or investors so why do I need this? That's a great question that I get a lot as a CFO and in this episode I'm talking about business plans, ...

Welcome to episode two of Thriving in the Chaos. In this episode, we are addressing the elephant in the room - imposter syndrome!

How many of you does that resonate with? Feeling like you're constantly in a state of fake it till you make it. That feeling that you're lucky to have the job you have. You know you're smart. You know what you're doing, yet here you are questioning it again. How did we get here?

We were con...
