I’ll never forget the moment that my life shifted in what success meant to me. I was sitting in the audience at the retirement celebration of a woman at the very top of her company. She had achieved everything you could possibly achieve in terms of career success. She was making more money in one month than most are making in a year and we were gathered to celebrate her illustrious career. On the stage joining her were her grown...more
In working with my clients, I am seeing a common question:
“How can I be a more effective leader during this crisis?”
This virus is turning out to be a critical leadership stress test. It has challenged most companies in virtually every way and is challenging leaders everywhere to bring their A-game. To complicate it further, you are asked to do so while you yourselves are facing incredible challenges.
Fall is just around the corner! I am loving the cooler Colorado nights and we are just weeks away from jeans, hoodies and pumpkin spice lattes. Fall is my favorite season of the year. I grew up, the daughter of the high school football coach, so I love football and I think we can all agree on enjoying cooler days and the fresh beginnings of a new school year. I don’t know about you, but at the end of every school year, I am SO ready for...more
A little over 7 years ago I found myself at a crossroads. I was burned out, stressed out, and just overall unhappy with my professional life. That unhappiness was leaking into every other area of my life. I was irritable and my fuse was short with those I loved most. I don’t know if you’ve ever found yourself in that place, but it’s not fun. Not fun for us and not fun for those around us. I knew I needed to make a change but I didn’t...more
Have you ever felt like you just don’t fit in? You’re too outgoing for this group, too introverted for this group, too tall, too short, too conservative, too loose, too quiet, too loud, too quirky, too serious, too virtuous, too wild, too hard working, too spiritual, ……. Anyone?
I can remember feeling this way many times even dating back to when I was a teenager. I wanted to be included but I didn’t want to do the things it took to be...more
Happy New Year friends! Yes, it’s officially 1 month into it, but if you’re like me, you’re still getting used to writing 2019 and are probably still ironing out your goals/resolutions/visions for the new year. So speaking of goals, I wanted to write a little bit about that today. I’ve personally been setting goals since I was a young girl. I was a competitive gymnast and I used to set goals for the score I wanted to get on each event for...more
Have you noticed how much we throw around the word, busy? It’s as though being busy, even to the point of exhaustion, has become a badge of honor. When you ask someone how things are going the answer is almost always, “oh, it’s so busy.” Do you ever wonder, busy with what? Remember that I’m a mom of 4, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, and a business owner. I’ve been very guilty of overusing the word busy. In fact, a few years ago...more
Well, here we go! I’ve really thought a lot about what this first post should be about and then landed on sharing my vision for Fiorii and how it came to be. For 23 years I have been working with women to help them build a business from the ground up. I have absolutely loved it! Not all of it, as with anything , but most of it. I love coming alongside people to help them to achieve whatever their goals are. I love watching someone...more
