I've been in business for over 10 years. Some years I've felt like a pro. Other years I've felt like an impostor.
Some years I have made tons of money (multiple six figures), other years what felt like hardly any (under $30k). Some years I've outspent my earnings and other years I've saved. Some years I've been proud of my accomplishments and at other times I've wondered if I have any talent whatsoever for what I'm trying to do.Read More
Right before Charlotte was born, we bought and moved into our house upstate near Clinton Corners and Millbrook. It's a sweet little house and a landmark according to the local Clinton Historical Society.Read More
In the past week I've done some meditations and journaling to get to the heart of my heart's desires.
What do I really want?
What do I desire that I'm barely aware of?
Which of my desires are not really my true desires?
How can I know?Read More
Coats are my thing. I have four different leopard print coats alone (one rain jacket, one topper, one cropped and one full length double breasted number) and a special closet (in closet-challenged NYC) just to hold them.Read More
How many of you want to write a book? A memoir, novel, how to, self-help?

When I was a kid, I loved music. My mom taught me the basics of piano and then bought piano books so that I could plunk along on my own. It was fun, low key and I loved it- especially singing along.Read More
This past week was Yom Kippur- the Jewish day of atonement. I'm not Jewish and I know that cultural appropriation is the new favorite critique to levy at folks, but I think it's a great concept regardless of your religious tradition.*Read More
It feels like we’re surrounded by violence. And the violence we’ve been experiencing (mostly, I hope, as bystanders) in our nation and world is tragic.
Those who commit these violent acts are, in most cases, individuals. Solitary men. (Sorry, dudes, but not so many chicks are involved in mass shootings and terrorist acts.) Men who make a series of decisions that lead them to end the lives of others.Read More
Yes. Here's what you can learn from Rose Red and Lavender, a Brooklyn-based floral design shop.
So many people (especially B2B companies) think they have to be boring and dry and devoid of a sense of humor or personality in order to "do marketing."Read More
Every week an acquaintance or friend asks me for recommendations on coach trainings and whether they really matter. In this article I want to share what I’ve learned after ten years as a coach.

Over the weekend Kanye West revealed to the world via twitter that he is $53 million in debt.*
He also revealed that he most likely is mentally ill. I don’t want to armchair psychoanalyze him but I’d say he’s got a heavy dose of clinical narcissism going on.
And because he’s clearly a creature in pain, I don’t want to make fun of him. Instead, we’ll let Stephen Colbert do that.Read More
I wasn't one of those women who longed for children, or marriage for that matter.*
