Entrepreneurship is not for everyone.  It can be lonely as you dance to your own music on the fringes of what appears to be a symphony at larger companies with a broad reach, adequate headcounts with attractive benefits and deep pockets.  As enthusiastic as you may be about your own business, the safety of a paycheck without risks and the comradery of a large group of people can feel like the sire...

Many years ago, while working in Madrid as a young lawyer I was quizzed by a Spanish co-worker, “Peelgrim, what’s a peelgrim?”  At that moment, I found myself trying to describe the outerwear of the women and the ultimate demise of the native Americans who, with generous hearts, had come forth with food.  In hindsight, my response lacked the depth and thoughtfulness I would attempt to give it toda...

Discrimination comes in many forms.  Our focus on discrimination is often geared to sexual orientation and race but there is a tiger in the house that is growing by the day – age discrimination.

Younger people have often felt discriminated against when they aren’t hired because of lack of experience.  Recent graduates, diplomas in hand, are book schooled but often lack on the job training needed by...

I have always been a builder bee, digger, remodeler, re-formatter, condenser, get to the point, big picture kind of gal.  Sometimes I feel a little bit like Shaun Murphy on The Good Doctor, staring into space, moving things around in my mind until they are “just right.”

A prior boss has said that I have the ability to condense massive amounts of material into two sentences.  I have quoted a pa...

Recently I met with a former chief financial officer interested in exploring new opportunities.  I asked him what he thought his brand was and his face wrinkled up with a little bit of disdain.  He told me that he thought branding himself had an ick factor, that he didn’t want to have a personal brand because it seemed arrogant and pushy.  Puzzled, I told him that he already had a brand, whether h...

CEOs are stepping into our world of humanity - some warily, some with conviction.  It’s a growing trend thanks to you - employees, consumers and impact investors who are using your voices and your budgets to mold the future of business.  Personally, I’m letting out a huge breath of relief.

It’s become pretty obvious to us all that our legislative process is so fractured that the very issues th...

Recently, as I sat with a friend over coffee reviewing our lives, I casually said “I’m in grace.”  What I meant by that was that I stay in gratitude for the blessings that show up in my life and I say thank you … a lot.

I’m grateful for the many friends that support and love me. I’m unbelievably happy that my girls married very special men, have healthy children and work that inspires them.  I give...

The news is disturbing, not just in our own country but around the world.  We are all just “tuckered out”, as my grandmother would say, with sensationalism, fear mongering and what appears to be a trend of hatred.  At first, we were shocked and horrified, putting our fingers in the dyke of our infrastructure as it appeared to fall apart, springing leaks right and left.

And the more leaks it sp...

As you read this newsletter, I’m retracing my steps - back to the first day of school, back to the early years of middle school, back to a place I called home in my formative years … Lima, Peru.

As a grown woman, I work with others helping them understand how various life experiences have truly impacted and shaped their authentic selves. Those experiences adeptly define the personal values that mea...

There are many cooks in the proverbial kitchen of social innovation.  The most common partnership, and possibly the easiest, for companies to tackle as they venture out into the world of cross sector relationships is the signature partnership between a for profit and a nonprofit.

With a myriad of charities and causes near and dear to all of our hearts, it can be a challenge to settle on one or two...
