“Fear is like a black cavern that is terrifying. Once you enter the cavern and explore it, you realize that you can get out of it, go through it and get out of it.” (Isabel Allende)

Meetings I’m attending:

It’s been a busy week, but if you know me, you know that is how I like it!

I thoroughly enjoyed attending this year’s WECAI Promote and Prosper event where I connected with so many high-achieving women business owners. The Multicultural Marketing Panel was especially dynamic and inspirational.


Book I’m reading

The Go-Giver: a Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea, by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Great book with an easy to understand and implement concept: “be a giving person period: one who gives thought, gives attention, gives care, gives focus, gives time and energy– gives value to others.” What does your giving and receiving scale look like? Is it balance or tipping more in one direction? What do you think?

Ideas I’m Noodling…

Newtonian vs Einsteinian time: the idea that time is personal and moves slowly or quickly depending on where the individual is and what she is doing…YES! This is why time flies when you’re in flow and ticks slowly by when you are someplace or doing something you don’t want to be doing. Check out this synopsis, here.
