Spring Cleaning & A Time For Change

change not chance

Wednesday Words: Things That Fire Me Up

what fires me up (3-13)

I’m so sad that I couldn’t make it to Making Things Happen 2013, which starts today. Last year, this program changed my life, my company and my vision of the future. It really gave me the opportunity to dig deep and reflect upon what I want and how to get there. In one of the exercises, […]

Instead, I make decisions to try harder, do better, take action and strive to be the best me I can be every day. {via etsy} Although I don’t make resolutions, there […]

Happy New Year’s Eve!!! It’s been a crazy, fast & interesting 2012. There were sadly more downs than ups (especially with the passing of my grandpa).

Everything Happens for a Reason

everything happens for a reason

This morning I had to write a very difficult e-mail: a response to a client who decided to let me go from her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and proceed in a different direction after working together for the last 6 months. You might be wondering why am I sharing that I just got fired, but it’s […]
