Today I #GiveThanks for my Parents

If You Could Talk To Your Younger Self What Advice Would You Give Them?

“If you could travel back in time for a few hours and sit down with yourself as a teenager or young adult, what advice would adult you want to give younger you?” It’s an interesting exercise to ask yourself that question. And it’s interesting to feel the emotions that come as you consider the way

#BelieveInPeople

Two Options To Discover Your Limits

Over the past seven days I’ve given keynote speeches twice at Brigham Young University, once at Utah Valley University, I’ve spoken at a Women in Business Conference, I spoke at Southern Utah University, did a mentoring session, and I judged a High School business competition.

Voting Is A Small Price To Pay For Freedom

Despite this being a year where the last thing I want to hear about, read about, or talk about is politics, I felt it important to bring something up. Don’t worry – I’m not going to try and tell anyone which candidates to vote for Tuesday as I feel that is a deeply personal decision

What Will You Do With Your Extra Hour
