Simplify Life

Simplify Life

I am all about simplifying life’s daily routines and events, but it’s not always easy.  I recently completed a four-month business accelerator program at the Harbor, wrapped up three group-coaching classes and will start two new ones’ next week. And, like for most of us, spring has been a very busy time with family and friends. As a result, some of the...

How to Make the Most Out of This Fall

How to Make the Most Out of This Fall

As September ends I can’t say I’m disappointed. It’s the begi nning of fall and the end of the hurricane season. And even though some Septembers are calm, this was a year that Mother Nature lashed out with a fury. Luckily for us here in Charleston, all we suffered was a lot of anxiety and only a little physical damage....

Do you have a Love-Hate Relationship with Social Media?

We are social beings by nature, but nowadays there is less time to do all the things we need to get done and still have time to connect with families and friends on a serious level. We’re like Pavlov’s dogs. It’s easy to get on social media for a “quick fix” of updates, entertainment and “likes,” and receive a quick...

Is Your Success Draining Your Happiness?

Looking at work-life balance, financial goals and personal growth is an important part in helping people succeed...

Almost instantly, this gadget has created a “buzz” that is turning heads of all ages. But why? The Fidget Spinner was originally intended to hold the attention of distracted children. Now adults, especially those in high-stress environments, use them to...

Giving up on your goals does not mean you are lazy

Just as we had the beginning of the digital revolution at the end of the last century, we are now experiencing a personal transformation revolution.  It’s about becoming healthier, happier and living your own life with purpose. But better health and positive change won’t come unless you know what you’re doing. Here...

What’s the Secret to Success?

I recently read an article by designer Tory Burch about how growing up playing sports, in particular tennis, helped her develop her successful fashion career.  As an entrepreneur myself, I appreciated her analogy since I too grew up playing tennis, swimming and running.

Resolve to Take a Broad Approach to Weight Management this New Year

Now that we are in the holiday season, many of us resign ourselves to the weight gain that typically follows. Indeed, it is very hard to pass up holiday sweets that seem to be everywhere as well as extra servings of a traditional family dish. That’s why so many weight loss books are published at this time promising a “New Year, New You.” So it’s no surprise...
