Notice Each Precious Moment

This weekend I thought a lot about precious moments in our lives.  Isn’t it interesting that we so often don’t relish the moments in life until they have passed?  Things like snuggling with our kids, or playing a game with our family, or a kiss with our sweetheart, or laughing on the phone with a […]


“Crying is how your body speaks when your mouth can’t explain the pain you feel.” The truth is that I am not much of a crier, especially at work.  But I have to admit that this week I have cried several times.  As excited as I am for my next phase of life, this week […]


So the story goes that there were these Sneetches – some had stars on their bellies and some had plain bellies.  The Star Belly Sneetches were proud and they considered themselves better than the Plain Belly Sneetches.  The Star Belly Sneetches would walk by the plain belly Sneetches without saying a word to them.  Then […]

Forgive and Let Go

All of us have been hurt before.  All of us have experienced being let down and disappointed.  We have all had someone we love betray us, some of us in major ways and some of us in smaller ways, but we have all been through the experience of being hurt by someone we care about. […]


I love learning from a room full of incredibly smart people!   Today I was able to attend a meeting that was put together by Leavitt Partners (founded by former HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt, also the former Governor of Utah).  Leavitt Partners has formed a group called Health Intelligence Partners, which is a collaborative panel of […]

Following September 11th

I know that many people thought a lot today about the tragedy that befell our country 11 years ago.  I know that I did.  Just the thought of how horrible that day was makes my heart ache to remember.   But my message today isn’t to recall what happened on that horrendous day, but rather I […]


“Either you run the day, or the day runs you.”  -Jim Rohn I attended a meeting this weekend in which there were some amazing speakers.  One of the speakers shared her life story which started with growing up in an upper class family, going to college, getting married, having children, etc.  She was a classy, […]

Girl Power!

This week seems to be a week full of amazing Girl Power!   First it was my BYU presentation to the Women Entrepreneurs who were all AWESOME ladies.   And then today I sat down and spent several hours with Mia Love, who is running for Congress here in Utah.  She is AMAZING!  She is real and […]

I am an Entrepreneur!

“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen and others make it happen” – Michael Jordan Today was a great day.  I was able to go down to BYU to speak to the students involved in the Women’s Entrepreneurship program at BYU.  First, let me say how much you feel your age […]


Okay so today’s tweet is really more of a confessional.  I came home from a long day at work to find my teenage daughter busy at the kitchen table working on what was clearly a huge homework assignment.  She was focused and intense and clearly driven to get the project completed. I, on the other […]

Who Do You Want To Be?

“Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.”   -unknown. This Labor Day weekend was fabulous because it allowed me that time to sit back and remember exactly what and who I want to be.  I think it is so important to […]
