What does your fear sound like?

Fear is a tricky thing. It can prompt us to take action or even turn away. It can make us run from it or run to it. But, can I be honest? In business, I get scared all the time! Right now I’m in Boise, Idaho at Craft + Commerce, an event hosted by an…

Stop, Look, and Listen Before You Panic

I was a 17 year old high school junior when it first happened. The darkness of the morning was present and still. I was sick with a fever, ear infection, sinus infection, and severely dehydrated as I had not been able to digest any food in days. I found out a former classmate had committed…

This one is for Sarah…

It’s crazy how meeting new people can really change your perspective about life and your problems. As I write this blog, I’m currently 30,000 miles in the air with good ol’ Southwest airlines. I’m returning from an amazing conference, charged up and excited about life. While waiting to board my return flight, I met a…

Think Ahead, Plan Ahead

Think Ahead, Plan Ahead Many moons ago, I sat as a sophomore in high school in my Driver’s Ed class. Now, not to toot my own horn (pun intended), but I was a BEAST at Driver’s Ed! You see, my big sister had been letting my roll in the driver’s seat of her Ford ZX2…

Take your mind off the stress of life

I don’t know about you, but it seems like there’s so much noise going around lately. Good, bad, or indifferent…it just seems like there’s a lot of stuff, doesn’t it? There are obligations, RSVP’s, work, graduations, goals, projects, side hustles, commitments, responsibilities…and the list goes on. I’ve been feeling it lately, too. So last week, I…

Omelette, anyone?

Can you believe 2018 is almost 50% complete? We’re already in the second quarter of the year, “sprummer” is upon us (because this weather is playing all types of games, I’m not sure if it’s Spring or Summer), and it’s May 6th…MAY 6th! Any who, I wanted to bring you a quick blog post after I read…

Premium Gas ONLY!

Have you ever heard of the term, “Gas me up?” According to Urban Dictionary, it was first penned by the modern day philosopher, Drake. Where it originated from is not important, but amongst my circle of friends, we use that term to compliment and overwhelmingly encourage one another. Now, I said overwhelmingly encourage for a reason. When we…

You Matter

There’s been a lot going on in the world lately and I wanted to say…. You matter and you are valued. We talk a lot about life lessons, beast mode, and getting things done. I believe that to be true. But, sometimes we just have and stop to remember the precious gift that life is….

Confetti or not, here we come

Who doesn’t love Confetti? This week’s blog post is going to be another short, yet impactful one! Do you remember that little book of quotes I told you about? Well, I pulled it out again today to find another good one: “I’ve decided that the stuff falling through the cracks is confetti and I’m throwing a…
