ARE YOU SABOTAGING YOUR SUCCESS?

October 20, 2016

I love people. I love connecting with people. I want to know their stories. I long to understand what lights them up.

I think there were, like, maybe Continue Reading »

WHY NO IS THE NEW YES

August 28, 2016

I’m sitting in bed eating chocolate out of the wrapper after a longgggg day. I should really kick my sugar habit but I like the reward that caps off an exhausting day of mommy and entrepreneur too much.   I should also really go to sleep but here I am cracking open my computer and signing into my Continue Reading »

Well, it’s 2016. How did that happen?

I’M A MOM. NOW WHAT?

November 15, 2015

I'm a mom. Now what?

On June 30th this year, my life changed forever. I became a mother which, in turn, made me grow up real fast.

MY FIVE BIGGEST LESSONS FROM 2014

January 21, 2015

My Biggest Lessons From 2014

One important skill I like to teach my students is how to be reflective. No, I’m not talking about teaching them how to morph into metal or become mirror-like (however, that could possibly help me rank as the coolest teacher ALIVE!). I teach them how to, upon completion of a project or task, reflect on what they Continue Reading »

THE SECRET TO NEVER DIETING AGAIN

December 19, 2014

I just got back from lunch at my favorite cafe. You know what’s so cool about this statement? I wouldn’t have been able to say that a few years ago. Why, you might ask? Well, it’s quite sad, really. I was too anxious to eat out at restaurants where I wasn’t in control of preparing Continue Reading »

An array of factors—-culture, media, taste preferences, allergies, past experiences, mood—-influence both the food choices we make and how we eat. Just being in the presence of a young toddler proves that a baby isn’t born with a diet mentality nor does she Continue Reading »

How are we at this same point in the calendar nearly 365 days later? As we embark on the last Continue Reading »
