    • On Saying No to Shortbread: 5 Tips for a Saner Holiday

      One of my coaching clients recently posted a question in our online group about how to be good to yourself during the especially hectic holiday season. This post has stayed with me, and I have been pondering it while on vacation in beautiful Arizona. This year hubby and I chose to take a month off and have our Christmas holidays away from home and from most of our family and friends. We were

    • Decluttering gives the future self elbow room

      Ease and flow are the hallmarks of a peaceful life. Along with a sense of time abundance, these are vital components of true in-the-bones contentment, or what I call ‘everyday happiness.’ Too much stuff cramps your style. Fussing and fumbling to find things, encountering daily disorganization and clutter creates chaos. This is the antithesis of peace. My intention is to enter 2018 in a

    • Mindful Monday: Meditation Made Easy

      I was reading James Altucher's book Choose Yourself this morning and in it James relays a story about Gandhi where he tells his compatriots that he needs to set aside one hour a day to do meditation. They exclaim, "Oh no, you can't do that! You are too busy, Gandhi!" They were, after all, trying to free a nation. Ghandi replies, "Well, then. I now need to set aside two hours a day to do

      Dancing at the Edge: The Crossroads of Fear and Excitement

      Multipreneurs are much admired. I don't just say this to be smug. People often marvel at how much we get up to and the sheer number of diverse projects on the go at any one time. For us, it's basically just the state of the nation. How it is. The way we live and work. Most multipreneurs I know are usually finishing a project, starting a project and in the middle of a project (or projects) all

      Three Ways To Turn Back Time

      Updated: April 2017 I meet many in midlife who  exclaim, "I wish I could turn back time!", lamenting about lost opportunities or the lack of consciousness they had about the possibilities life would hold. For many self-employed entrepreneurs, our skills were late-blooming ones. We started out in typical nine-to-five jobs on a career track, or with businesses focused on a specific

      Mindful Monday: When Even Your Ideas Have Ideas

      Multipreneurs face a hard truth. It goes like this: we are basically as busy as we want to be. We have ideas. Lots of them. Even our ideas have ideas. While, personally, I dig the idea of being an idea generation machine (see, there's an example of an idea having an idea right there), what I know is that there's a way that we become hostages of these ideas. Our FOMO - or  Fear Of Missing

      It's Foodie Friday and Dishing in Kitchen published an awesome recipe today for a knockout summer appy or lunchtime main that's simple to make, beautiful look at and super-tasty. It's the kind of food I love to eat, make and serve. Get your gazpacho on. Om. The kitchen is where I find my zen. As multipreneurs, it is easy to become overwhelmed, taking multitasking to new levels

      Whiskers, Whispers and Wayback Wednesday

      Remember Old Spice? I'm not talking about the uber-viral transformation of the brand in recent years epitomized by the "Old Spice Guy" suburban-porn style TV commercials (although that was pretty impressive). I'm talking about the way it smelled when men wore it in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The way the Old Spice Old Guys wore it. My grandfather was one of them. Yours was, too, I'll bet. He shaved
