I want to start by saying this is NOT an ad. I repeat. NOT an ad.
You’re probably thinking – no sh**t Sherlock people wouldn’t pay you to do ads… not yet at least ;). But in case you thought I was some super hip influencer who got offered free stuff to market, I certainly am NOT and do NOT.
I DO just like to talk about the things I learn about and do every day that helps me in hopes that after reading about it maybe it will help you too!
I LOVE reading. It hasn’t always been this way, but I got here.
When I was a kid, I didn’t always like reading, I actually kind of hated it at points. But I always really wanted to like it. I wanted to be thought of as a “reader”, a lover of books, pretty much a real live Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I really wish I was kidding here…but I’m totally serious…
At the time I just couldn’t get into any books that I would read. Then in about 7th grade, I finally read this book Flipped. It is a total teeny-bopper book, but I fell in love with it and it totally changed how I felt towards reading. Continue reading “Summer Reads for 2019”→
This week’s blog was inspired by my friend Meg. =]
The other day Meg asked me and my other friend, Carol, what were some good podcasts that she should listen to. That question got me to thinking of writing a blog about podcast recommendations because there are also just so many options out there and it’s hard to even know where to start looking.Continue reading “My Favorite Podcasts”→
Recently, I finished listening to Brendon Burchard’s book High Performing Habits. It’s actually my second time listening to it because it is THAT good. I tend to listen my favorite books on tape multiple times and every time I walk away learning something new that I missed the first time around.
This time it was the saying, “Courage is contagious”. As soon as he said that phrase it really hit home, and I instantly wrote it in my phone so I wouldn’t forget. Courage is contagious. It’s a saying that has been used for a long time and after Googling it last night I saw that there are MANY books with that phrase or something similar somewhere in their title. I know I had heard it before, but for some reason when he said it that day it really resonated with me. It made me stop and think about the times in my own life where I’ve been courageous and impacted others, on top of the times I’ve watched someone be courageous and was inspired by THEIR courage.Continue reading “Courage is Contagious: GIRL POWER”→
I am not sure why, but how fast a picture, video or movement can go viral and spread like wildfire, STILL amazes me.
About two weeks ago my mom started telling me about this cute little woman, Marie Kondo,and her organizing and decluttering lessons. My mom often gets into these kicks of learning something new and then completely masters it overnight, like she will literally stay up all night doing it… and then talks about it, a lot. I do the exact same thing and typically follow everything she does in life, because she is the actual GOAT. Continue reading “The Marie Kondo Movement – Sparking Joy”→
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”→
