Have you noticed that when you search for yourself on Google, your site is pretty high up on the list? Google customizes our search results when we are signed in to any Google account. Sites you have visited often will appear higher in the search results.

Are you pulling your hair out getting ready to file your taxes? Swearing next year will be different? Next year, you will be organized? Start working now to be prepared next year.
I love this quote:
Small things, done consistently and in strategic places, produce the greatest results.*
I try to keep this in mind whenever I’m tackling a big project or changing a habit. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the big picture. Sometimes I tend to think “if I can’t do it…

As a business coach, so many of the therapists I meet, tell me they are looking for new, easy ways to get new clients, and want to know what I suggest they do that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Then I ask them the dreaded question,
"WHY do you need new clients?"…

Yesterday I started a new job.
Four days ago I quit the old one.
You know that the old job, if you've read my first blog post, was turning into an unpleasant situation. It was a good thing I left given what the alternative would've been had I choked and stayed on.
The downside is that I left the location that was providing me the bulk of my…Continue
