  1. Discipline. Joy. Believe. Faith. These were my words for 2017. In November 2007, I hired my first coach to help me scale my mortgage business. Her name was Tammy. In January 2008, Tammy encouraged me to have a ‘theme for the year’. This theme, phrase, words, or mantra (however you like to roll) would encompass what I wanted to achieve that year.

  2. Joy... Joy is one of my words for 2017. Honest truthful… I haven’t experienced much joy this year. As I write this, I’m listening to the Jim Brickman Pandora station and a beautiful piano rendition of “To Make You Feel My Love” floats through the air and I get a lump in my throat. Tears find their way to my eyes. Sadness and grief creep in to this space and I’m allowing myself to feel it. No… I’m forcing myself to feel it.

  3. I was invited to speak at INBOUND this year. If you haven’t heard of it (I hadn’t either… don’t feel bad…), INBOUND is one of the largest, most diverse conferences in the space of digital marketing. Over 21,000 people from all over the world converged on Boston, MA at the end of September to hear from inspiring speakers like Brené Brown, Michelle Obama, John Cena, and Lisa Brouwer.

  4. In 1998, I fell in love with a two-tone hunter green and charcoal Heritage Softail with Fat Boy handlebars. This motorcycle was my dreamy iron pony so her license plate read GYDYUP. (Giddy Up was already taken by a 1974 Ford Pickup.) Her soothing romp-romp-romp sounded like the heartbeat of a strong stallion but her road vibration in 5th gear made my hands and feet go numb at 70 mph. I needed a higher gear.

  5. A very confident looking woman marched up to me, looked me right in the eye, stuck her hand out to shake mine, and said “Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Hi! My name is Trish and I wanted to meet you.” Have you ever felt an urge to do something that was uncomfortable?

  6. Sucked into the black hole of Facebook. Searching YouTube for the perfect clip. Binge watching Ozark and Manhunt on Netflix. When we finally look up to take a breath POOF! two hours are gone! Here are four things you can do this week to be productive and GSD... get sh*t done!

  7. Inspiration

    Years of dreaming and months of planning came down to this one point in time. I was sitting on a motorcycle I'd never ridden before, suited up in gear I'd never worn, starting an amazing journey from the biggest city in the United States. Was I nervous? Oh yes... I was scared to death.

  8. Practicing empathy is hard especially because we practice with people… people are complicated. There isn’t a dashboard displaying what we each need most at that very moment in…

  15. You probably have a lot of things (dare I say goals) you want to achieve this year. Things you want to be, do, or have before you say good-bye to 2015. Yep… me too. Sometimes,…

  16. John Maxwell says that experience isn’t the best teacher… evaluated experience is. Every day I learn something new but until I evaluate what I learn, I won’t change because of…
