    Leadership Lessons: How to Raise Healthy Kids to Be Excellent Leaders

    We know all the basics: lots of fresh air, sleep, fruits and vegetables, friendships, and loving parents. There is one extra area that works like a charm. It is kids teaching kids. You see, too much adult supervision and youngsters stop listening. All they hear is blah, blah, blah. And more than that, there is a deep pattern starting when the little ones are around two years old to say “NO.” …Read More

  2. They are ALL Our Children

    Years ago I was in Brazil for a conference. It was wonderful looking up at the “Christo Redentor” that is so much a part of Rio. It was fun sun bathing and walking along the famous Ipanema beach. I also had an opportunity to go inland to some of the mines where the crystals are in vast supply. I lugged back a large amethyst crystal that sits in my office as I write this. (more…)…Read More

  3. Missed the fireworks by a day

    We were there on Friday. Yup. We were at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Even had lunch at The Volcano House. We stood at the steam vents (great for a facial) and went as far as we could go to get some “hot” pictures of Kilauea and the lava flow. Missed the big show by one day. Bummer. So here are spectacular photos of the volcano and the red hot lava. Click here for images of Kilauea. By …Read More

  4. Women Leaders: We Do NOT have More Time to be Silent

    Rachel Carson who wrote a book of major importance “The Silent Spring” was a GUTSY woman who spoke out about the level of toxins in our world 50 years ago. Those numbers are higher and the risk more deadly. Someone recently commented that with all the toxins in the world we are living longer so why worry. Interesting point of view. Do yourself a favor and get a copy of Carson’s book. It is a…Read More

  5. GUTSY Women and Attachment Parenting

    Time magazine May issue started a major brouhaha that is hopefully the beginning of a great dialogue about what it means to be a parent and what children really want and need. For me, the photo of the mother and three year old son at his mother’s breast brought up the controversy from decades ago about nursing moms. I was a “thoroughly modern Millie” who, along with most of my peers, saw nur…Read More

  6. Rush Limbaugh Being Told to “SHUT UP”

    Maybe, just maybe the era of anything goes is ending. Maybe, just maybe the guy with the loud mouth and no couth will be put out to pasture. It’s about time.   I have listened to Mr. Limbaugh, on occasion, to understand his appeal. I have always turned him off with a sense of deep sadness. Oh sure, he has made millions. However, inside that large frame is a tortured little child who is scre…Read More

  7. Barbie Lives!

    Doing research for my book “GUTSY: How Women Leaders Make Change”, I was a bit aghast with the powerful hold that little blonde, plastic doll named Barbie still has on so many little girls. Research shows that when 13 year old girls were asked to define their view of beauty, there was a statistically significant number who said a beautiful girl had long, blond hair, was about 5’7” tall and…Read More

  8. Read, Repeat. Remember

    I was busy getting our new CEO website ready with the most amazing web designer, Hilary Brooks (www.smallbizwebwhiz.com) . It will be ready next week so we’ll keep you posted. I was working on the content for CONSULTING and was looking at what we teach when we go into various companies. One thing that struck me right between the eyes is how limiting our educational system is and how we need to p…Read More

  9. Can’t We Just Be Friends

    The following Time article is a great example of what happens when patterns we learned as children are not transformed as we grow into adulthood. There are many ways to look at our patterned behavior and be accountable for our part in all relationships. Female-female relating is becoming more and more polarized as we look at the housewives series on reality TV and the large number of women taken t…Read More

  10. A Halloween Gift

    This blog is on the personal level and I hope you find what I am about to share helpful. My mother died on Halloween years ago. Hard to forget the exact situation when it is not just an ordinary day, one usually filled with fun and costumes and candy and parties.   Those years ago I was in the middle of the worst time in my life. I was separating from my husband, finances were tight, my daughters…Read More
