Insanely Exciting News – Bust out the pink bling and sparkles!

Several months ago the day after we’d spent time together as a family (with my two kids and their spouses and our grandbaby) my husband said, “I think we are going to be grandparents again.”  “Of course we will be” I replied with certainty given all the incentives I’ve thrown out to bribe my children […]

Make Sure You Word Your Prayer Right The First Time

Today I learned why it’s really important to make sure you word your prayers right the first time. After spending three days in the hospital with my flu-stricken grandbaby last weekend into Monday, and having the doctors and nurses tell me that there was about a 100% chance I’d end up sick myself I got […]

A Night I Will Never Forget

Tonight I had the privilege of being the very first speaker for this year’s annual Entrepreneurial Leadership Series up at Utah State University (hosted by the Huntsman School of Business) for around 400 students. USU holds a special place in my heart because my grandfather was a graduate there and he later taught there as […]

Even Successful People Are Just People

WHAT AWESOME LOOKS LIKE: How To Excel In Business & Life

I have to say that starting the year off with a great big completed check on one of my big goals from my goal poster feels pretty fantastic! I finished writing my very first book ever and I’m going to be receiving my advanced copy of the book fresh off the presses from the publisher […]

How To Excel In Business And In Life

This morning I was interviewed for by Mary Crafts-Homer for her podcast, Crafting A Meaningful Life. Mary was the founder and CEO of Culinary Crafts, an incredibly successful catering business (she’s done events for many of the rich and famous like Oprah Winfrey, George W. Bush, Sir Elton John, etc), that she grew and recently […]

Everything Looks Different From A Bird’s Point Of View

Have you ever looked out the window of the airplane as its coming in for a landing and been amazed at how differently things appear from up in the sky?  That’s because everything looks different from a bird’s point of view. I’ve thought about that many times when someone frustrates me or when something happens […]
