How I Do It… And Why

If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me, “I don’t know how you do it”, well hell, I’d have a lot more money than I do now!  But in all seriousness, I get asked that question a lot over stuff that I consider routine, so I wanted to talk about it… Continue reading How I Do It… And Why

It is my belief that we all have at least one pivotal moment in our lives. Often it is when we realize that we are missing a part of ourselves. Maybe it’s the career you haven’t chosen yet, wanting children, finding a spouse, getting a new hobby; anything that might symbolize a moment of clarity.… Continue reading Reinventing myself and finding my passion
