Prosperity is Yours for the Taking

Prosperity is Yours for the Taking

Somebody has to be first, why shouldn’t it be you? Be clear about why you are working. I have a lot of passion for my work, but if I didn’t need the money, I would be doing something different. Do what you love and the money will follow is a myth.

A Passion with No Strings

A Passion with No Strings

You must have a passion separate from the work you do for money and separate from your family. When I look around at all the happiest people I know, they have this in common.

Debunking Self Care

Debunking Self Care

The very notion of calling it “self care” is asking for trouble. Don’t you agree? It’s like putting a giant flashing light on it that says OPTIONAL. Why do we call it self care? Is brushing your teeth self care? Of course, it’s taking care of yourself. But, would you skip it? No, you would not.

Make Space and Give Grace

Make Space and Give Grace

January never seems like the right time to start a new year. It’s the middle of winter when much of the natural world is asleep. At least in the Northern hemisphere.

Happiness is a Journey Not a Destination

Happiness is a Journey Not a Destination

I have news that may shock you.  You are never going to get THERE.  Where is THERE anyhow?  THERE is HERE, and you are THERE now.  What???  This is starting to sound like a “who’s on first” joke… I used to have a quote on my cubicle wall that said, “Quality is a...

Should You Have a Backup Plan?

What if you dive into this consulting thing and it doesn’t work?  Do you go back to your corporate job and put the baby back in day care?  Tell the nanny that you were just kidding and that you actually do need her? I have a lot of experience running large medical...

Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow – NOT!

Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow – NOT!

I recently had the opportunity to write a guest post for Women On The Fence. Thank you @EricaDiamond! If Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow had been a Katy Perry song instead of a book, it would have been the anthem of the late 80s and early 90s. This advice didn’t stop there. On June 12, 2005, Steve Jobs, then CEO of Apple Computer and Pixar Animation Studios, delivered the commencement address at Stanford.
