The Gift of Resistance

I love my bike. Especially since my spinal issues said no running (which I never really cared for anyway). My bike has been my freedom.  And when the snow fell, I headed back indoors for spin class. Great music, great company and a great celebration of my body, which continues to carry me through this … Continue reading The Gift of Resistance

The Key to a Richer Life

I've been told several times in the past year that I am a 'serial entrepreneur'. Basically, I can't stop creating things: businesses, books, online courses... It's part of my nature to create. It's part of all of our natures to create. But it's where we direct the energy that can prove problematic. Often,  I create … Continue reading The Key to a Richer Life

The Most Empowering Advice I can Give You

Yes, that's a long title. But a rant entered my mind this morning. I was in a flow of energy around clients who want to write books. And clients who want to publish books through Author & Beyond publishing coaching in 2019. But they're not getting around to it. Because they are scared or don't … Continue reading The Most Empowering Advice I can Give You

It’s in my Nature

I have a substantial manuscript review on my plate. Next to the nutrition coaching session. Two recently-published children's books take up the other side of the plate, alongside the next in the Anna series — getting prepped for publishing. I am looking for affiliates for the chakra school and writing course material to facilitate a … Continue reading It’s in my Nature

The Weight of the Working Woman

I met a client the other night for a coaching session. You could say she is re-careering. She spoke about the struggle she faced the past 4 years in her recent position. How, as a business leader, she felt criticized. Judged. Under attack. Daily. And she talked about the weight she gained over those 4 … Continue reading The Weight of the Working Woman

The Squirrelly Nature of Mind

I sat on my front step this morning, preparing for meditation, when I heard a loud noise on the neighbour's fence. I looked over to see a black squirrel chasing a grey one. The grey one scratched down the fence as the black one stood on top. What surprised me was the hare. Sitting at … Continue reading The Squirrelly Nature of Mind

Today’s Contemplation

While you are here, in this earthly existence working out your karma... are you meant to spend your time diving into life on Earth: smell the flowers, taste the foods and enjoy the people around you? Or is it best to invest your time in practice, working toward enlightenment?   Maybe you become enlightened through … Continue reading Today’s Contemplation

The Secret to Ease in Your Work (and Life)

It's a huge secret. Ready? Use what you have. Right here. Right now. Starting a new project? A business? Jumping into the entrepreneurial pool? Use what you already have. Anxiety comes from trying to be or offer what you're not. And on the heels of that anxiety comes fear of being found out a fraud. … Continue reading The Secret to Ease in Your Work (and Life)

Finding Myself

I've spent years looking for myself. Who am I? What does it mean to be authentic? It's a trap. One that will have you trying to conform to this so-called authenticity. Because the mind will want a snapshot. To capture an image and perpetuate it: the authentic self. And round and round we go. It's … Continue reading Finding Myself
