How to make a good book trailer (hint: don’t be a narcissistic author!)

In case you didn’t get a chance to check out our newly released Book Trailer, here it is:   Today, I wanted to share the backstory of how we made this video. It’s been a four month labor of love and I’m very proud of the end result. But it didn’t start off this way! I almost made a horrible book trailer.  I was saved from making a terrible book trailer by discovering Jeff Goins’ blog Why Most Book Trailers Are Awful & How Yours Can Be Different. His insights were game changing.  Here’s why: we’re all narcissists. ? At least, that’s what Russ Hudson once said in an Ennea ..read more

Everyone leans on me, but who can I lean on for support?

Ever feel like you have to take care of everything (and everyone!), and yet who is taking care of you? Today’s short video is about why you may feel this way, what are the underlying causes and how you can feel less alone shouldering this burden… If you feel unsupported at work, or in your relationships, it could be because you weren’t truly supported as a kid. When the adults closest to us aren’t available or able to meet our deepest emotional needs, it can lead us to adapt the belief that we need to take care of ourselves in this world.  We can’t rely on others. It’s not safe, or w ..read more

Why should you meditate? Even this monk got jealous of the other monks

Between now and Jan 6th when we kick off our 2023 30 Day Meditation Challenge, I’ll be sharing five (unconventional) reasons + videos on why you should meditate. In case you missed Reason #1 last week, it was because people are annoying and kids are difficult. Seriously. Today is Reason #2, even this monk got jealous of other monks. While talking to a woman about our upcoming Soul Circles, she mentioned a friend in New York City who used to work in fashion and is now a Buddhist monk. This woman gave up all her possessions to become a monk over ten years ago. She enjoys spending her days cont ..read more

Exciting news – our 2023 30 Day Meditation Challenge starts on January 6th! In honor of this fabulous new 30 Day Challenge, I’m sharing a video on why I meditate…   “if children are nearby, have them put on their earmuffs as there’s some age-appropriate language at the beginning of the video!” Ok, fine, people aren’t really a*sholes. They’re just being human. And kids aren’t trying to be difficult. (well, sometimes they are). Mostly, they’re just being human. But golly gee, it sure is fun to blame others and believe it’s all their fault. If only they would behave (how I want and expec ..read more

Why my daughter stopped reading, and how we’ve taken the fun out of work

Something happened to my daughter Eva at school. Eva loves to read for hours every day. She’ll literally walk home from school with her nose in a book, almost bumping into parked cars as she reads while walking. In 4th grade, she had new “homework” to read for 45 minutes each day. This homework included a “reading log” in which she had to write down the title of the book, author, the page she started reading on, the page she stopped reading on, the time she started reading and the time she stopped reading each day. She was supposed to log her 45 minutes by tracking all of these metrics. I ..read more

You can never have too many pumpkins, but can you have too many podcasts?!

Fall is officially here in the US. Visits to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread…can you have too much pumpkin?! Also, what’s everyone’s stance on corn mazes? Do you cheat and take a picture of the maze on your phone (if available) or try to get out the hard = real way? We cheated. And then I felt guilty that I wasn’t teaching my kids to be resilient or problem-solve. Then I realized I should stop analyzing everything like a pop psychologist at a pumpkin patch and go shoot some melons out of a cannon instead. So we did. Launching mini pumpkins 100+ yards was pretty dang fu ..read more

Have you felt aggravated? Maybe it’s actually the insidious rub

Today, I want to talk to you about “the rub.” The rub is when something feels off to you, but you override that inner knowing.  Recently, my marketing team asked me to update an old blog on “5 Best Productivity Tips to Improve your To-Do List” for LinkedIn.  And I realized I don’t really care about productivity tips to improve your To Do list. I felt the rub. The “rub” can show up as not feeling motivated, not caring about something, or it can be a feeling of tightness or discomfort in your body. The rub happens when an aspect of your life is too small for you. You’ve outgrown somet ..read more
