Courageously Humble Confidence Meets The Stage

Great leaders aren’t remembered for being great because of what they said - but for who they were as humans. The top 3 leaders of all time - Gandhi, Mandela, and MLK - wrote & gave great speeches, but we remember them for WHO they were and HOW they lived, not just...

Dear Melanie, you’ll be WAY cooler.

You're not getting older, you're getting cooler.    All I'm seeing right now are decade reviews and humans saying "resolutions are dumb." It's a LOT of judgment on others, without even realizing it. It's also a lot of highlight reels or "this was the worst year."...

Word-of-mouth is a crap marketing strategy

“I get all my clients from word-of-mouth.”   Yep, that’s how it’s supposed to work. People should be talking about you. And yet Nike, Apple, and Google still do marketing. When I was in college, I accidentally got a job as the webmaster of my school. Someone in...

Go to your Why. Every time.

"Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much." - Helen Keller When I got out of college, my first job was selling billboards. In Buffalo. In the coldest winter they’ve had since the 1850’s. Brr. Needless to say, it was the world's worst first “real adult”...

You’re amazing – you courageous leader, you.

When we show up for ourselves, we show up for others. When I was 24, I had a boss who changed who I would become as a leader. She was unlike any human being I had ever met. When I walked into Talis's office in my interview suit, I saw a glint of magic in her eye and...

A Visionary Finds An Integrator

My whole life I’ve been a Visionary. The dictionary defines me as “a person with original ideas about what the future will or could be like.” It says I am “thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom.” TRUTH! I live into the next thing – I push through walls until I get there and then start planning the thing after that.

Don’t Warm Up On Your Audience

"If you're not clear about what you want, your audience won't be clear either." - Julie Hansen As Julie Hansen walked into my home, I KNEW we were going to get along. Her confident demeanor, outstanding style, and personal brand were on point - so we sat down to get...
