Simplify to Amplify Your Content

For some reason, when a lot of people sit down to create content, they turn into lawyers. They use big words and long sentences that they would never actually say out loud. It actually requires extra brain power to process what they are trying to communicate.

That’s when you lose people!

Taking Meaningful Action

Productivity. Priorities. Planning.

There are a lot of buzz words right now (and they all seem to start with the letter P!) that are intended to help us make the most of our time and efforts.

But in all the buzz about how to get more done, there is surprisingly little talk about what, exactly, we […]

Important vs. Urgent

Important vs. Urgent. How do you decide? According to Dictionary.com, Important means of great significance or consequence, while urgent means compelling or requiring immediate action. Both demand your attention.

Creating new things leads to growth.

Whenever I talk to business owners who want to grow their business, my question is “What are you creating to make that happen?”

Treading Water Or Making A Splash?

It seems like a lot of businesses are treading water. They have a way of doing things, and they show up every day and keep on kicking and paddling in order to keep their head above water.

Choosing a Platform For Your Online Course

I’ve been looking into a lot of the options for online course hosting, and there seems to be a new one popping up every week! It’s getting to be like e-mail marketing platforms, where there are literally hundreds to choose from.

The good thing is that, if you are looking for basic functionality, a crowded […]

A Year Of Dancing and Growth

It’s been just over a year since I walked back into a dance studio for the first time in over 10 years. Last year at this time, I share an article called “I Hope You Dance”, and it generated some of the most powerful responses I have ever received.

Many people were touched and inspired and […]
