“If you don’t hold the fear lovingly, it will follow you.” Martha Beck
A few weeks ago, I wrapped up my Master Coach training with Martha Beck. The opportunity to be coached by Martha over several days on her ranch was an experience that will remain with me for a long, long time.
For those of you that don’t know her, she’s been a Life Coach since before there was any such thing as a Life Coach, authored several best-selling books and has been writing a featured column in O Magazine for decades.
But the thing that is so ...continue reading...

This week my best friend turned 50 years old. And we celebrated in Paris.
It had been a dream of ours: host a women’s retreat in Tuscany and then go to Paris for a few days at her birthday. We had talked about it as something we’re going to do someday.
So many times, people create dreams and say, “Someday I’m going to…” but they never really do it.
“There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have.” Abraham Hicks
Eight women joined me in Tuscany this week for an eye-opening, heart-expanding, belief-busting, transformational experience.
And they got it.
One of the women came in carrying the very painful story that she wasn’t deserving of real, genuine, and lasting love and left ready to open her heart again and let herself be loved.
Another who had been taking her husband for granted realized what an amazing partner she has and is ready to make more space in her life and heart for him and for them ...continue reading...

As a creator, my job is to create. My medium of choice at the moment is writing. So, I follow the flow of my life and the challenges I hear from women all over the world as my source of inspiration.
My job isn’t to judge the quality of my work or to force it on people. My job is to create what is calling to be created in my soul and trust that those who need my message will find it.
Here’s how ...continue reading...
“Life is a terminal condition. We’re all going to die…but we all, in some ways, wait for permission to live.” Kris Carr
We came into this world absolutely perfect.
We ate when we were hungry. We slept when we were tired (regardless of where we were or what was going on around us). When our parents said, “Let’s go to the park to play,” we never once stopped to ask ourselves if we deserved an afternoon of playing at the park or if we had done enough work to justify a few hours of pure, unadulterated joy.
Most of ...continue reading...
“Transformation is never easy or painless, but essential to the growth of our soul.” Elizabeth Gilbert
It was the Sunday at the end of a long Thanksgiving weekend. While my husband was out, I packed a bag and placed it in my car.
When my husband came home, we sat there in the foyer and I told him I was leaving. I don’t remember exactly what I said, but I remember that anxious, confused and scared feeling as if it were yesterday.
When I walked out that door of my home that evening, I had crossed a sacred threshold ...continue reading...

I had the absolute pleasure of being able to train this week with the best life coaches in the world, including arguably the most successful life coach there is – Martha Beck. I was inspired and challenged, encouraged and motivated. I gained insight from life coaches that have been helping people live out loud for more than 10 years. It was, in a word: amazing.
One of my takeaways from the training was the reminder that it’s important as coaches that we ...continue reading...
