Imagine finding a buried treasure right in your own back yard and all you have to do is unearth it. Your inner-wisdom is an often overlooked and underutilized faculty, yet it is a powerful tool that can help you create a more meaningful and fulfilling life. In this workshop you will learn:
What wisdom is, why it's so important and the role it plays in achieving your goals and dreams
How your 'story' prevents you from accessing your inner wisdom and living your best life.
How to reframe wisdom as a strategy that can be applied to everyday challenges.
How to set ‘SMART’ goals and design a plan of action using wisdom as your guide.
How to archive your inner wisdom, making it easily accessible for future reference.

Many women, who are now at midlife and beyond, were taught that angry feelings are not nice or ladylike. Expressing anger, was even less acceptable. But over the last several decades, attitudes have changed and more girls and women are encouraged to express their anger in a more direct and honest manner. That said, women still find anger challenging.
Let’s face it, anger can be a scary emotion. It can sneak up on you and explode when you least expect it. Some of us (not surprisingly women) are better at controlling it than others. If a woman is angry, she’s perceived as emotional, out of control or aggressive, whereas if a man is angry, it’s more acceptable.
Biologically, humans are hard-wired to feel and express anger as a way of ensuring our survival. We’re also hard-wired to control it, it just takes more effort. Bottom line, when it comes to expressing anger, there is no excuse for bad behavior, whether you are a man or a woman. We can do better and it just so happens, women usually do.
For women, the bigger challenge around anger is giving themselves permission to express it whereas for men, it’s around anger management. Women tend to be less at ease with their own anger. This is partly due to fear of how it may affect others. In the past, women didn't have as many role models for expressing anger in an assertive manner. They were expected to 'go along, to get along.' As a result, they tend to ignore or suppress their own anger.
For a woman, giving herself permission to be angry is about finding her voice. It’s about self-acceptance and self-respect. When a woman acknowledges her anger and expresses it in healthy and appropriate ways, she honors herself, builds self-esteem, improves communication and strengthens her relationships.
If you would like to learn more about how to be more comfortable with your own anger and express it with strength and confidence, check out my May 2021 newsletter, "The Trouble With Anger."

It’s been over a year since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic in this country. We’ve been tested as a nation and as individuals to see if we have what it takes to survive AND thrive during this historic event. Many things will return to business as usual as the pandemic passes, but some of our ‘new normal’ will likely remain.
To ensure this experience isn’t lost on you, decide what you want to take away from it not just for posterity, but in terms of lessons learned.
As you look back on this year, ask yourself:
What was my biggest challenge?
What was my biggest win?
What has this past year taught me?
You are not the same person you were one year ago. Now is the time to start thinking about what you want your Post-COVID life to look like.

Want to view COVID-19 in retrospect ? Check this out.
January is already in the rear-view mirror, so now is the time to look back and take stock. You may be wondering, ‘Take stock? Now? We’re only into February!’ Start now by asking yourself:
1. What’s going well so far this year?
2. What isn’t working, i.e. what is preventing me from moving in the direction of my goals?
3. What changes do I need to make to get on track/stay on track?
I’m a big fan of taking inventory, but not at years end. Do it as you go along. That way, you can tweak your action-plan and make course corrections continually, rather than looking back at year’s end with a long list of ‘coulda – shoulda – wouldas.’
By taking inventory at the end of each month, you’ll have at least twelve opportunities to reassess, make adjustments, fine-tune and reboot if necessary.
To jump-start your progress for February, ask yourself:
What one change I can make TODAY that will help me stay on track? And then…DO IT! You’ll thank me for it in December.
