This blog is meant to be about work, life, health and how to not only get by but also to become the best version of ourselves in all of these areas.
My goal is to be completely honest with you about everything that I do and try, things that I go through and learn from. Today’s topic is a bit of a personal one, but I think it’s important to talk about. It’s important because I learned so much from it and it caused such a sudden shift in my life that I know it made a permanent impact. Continue reading “In loving memory…”→
This past December I noticed that all of my favorite podcasters were doing a year end review on their shows. A year end review is when you would take a moment to reflect on what went well and what didn’t over the past year. The pod casters would go over what they accomplished and where they failed so they could learn from it.
At first I really wasn’t into the episode because I didn’t feel like it was something I could benefit or learn from. But, by the end of that first episode I realized just how wrong I was. The whole concept of what they were doing was such a GREAT tool for improvement. Taking a minute to stop and reflect on the past year to get a better “birds eye view” of what ACTUALLY happened, rather than evaluating it while your in the middle of it.Continue reading “Your Q1 Review – A step by step guide”→
The holidays are finally over … and some of us may be experiencing the two-day New Year’s Eve “hangover”. Some may be totally relieved it’s over, and some may be slightly sad because the holiday season festivities have officially come to an end.
Since I LOVE Christmas, I am typically sad that the season is over. I’m sad because there are no more parties or fun foods. I feel sad while putting away Christmas decorations and taking down the lights (not going to lie, I cried a little while doing so this year). I really do feel a sort of magic in the air at this time of year and I don’t want to see it end!
The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. People are buzzing about putting up decorations, buying gifts, planning meals, going to parties, hosting parties, and making holiday goodies. And that’s just in their spare time! In many cases, this is ALSO many companies’ year-end or quarter-end. This added deadline puts an additional stress on people to close out business and get those last revenue dollars in by the end of the year. It’s a lot, to say the least.Continue reading “The Best Present You Can Give This Holiday…”→
Summer is my favorite out of the beautiful seasons here in New England. I mean, what is there not to love about SUMMER? Beach days, the warm sun on your face, hot dogs, ice cream, vacations, tans, shorts, flip flops… It’s the happiest time of the year, and for many, it’s also one of the busiest times. Since we live in New England, we only get about 3.5 months, if that, of beautiful warm weather. So we try to cram in as many outdoor activities as possible: ball games, BBQs, weekend getaways to the beach, vineyard visits, boat cruises, mini-golfing, or just taking a run or walk outside.

Recently I was asked by my boss Danny Cahill to be a guest on his podcast and discuss which books I suggest people should add to their summer reading lists. Danny knows that I am a bit of a self-help nut, as there is nothing I love more than to read a great book on the beach. It’s my FAVORITE thing to do. In the whole.wide.world.Continue reading “My “Go-to” Summer Reading List”→
