No Breaks! We Are Driving Through It…

By jennifer | March 18, 2018

How do the sayings go?  “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.”  “If he brings you to it, he will bring you through it.”  I try to stay steadfast relying on personal history and these overused sayings.  That doesn’t mean I don’t have moments yelling at God/Life/The Universe, “A break, even a short one, give me a BREAK!”  In the shower, that is where I do my best

The Bad Habit Gap Shortens

By jennifer | March 4, 2018

Have you ever had a period in your life where you thought … I finally have made this a good habit.  Or I finally have broken that bad habit.  Maybe you started an exercise program and kept it going strong for 9 months and then a high stress period occurs and the next thing you know, you haven’t been to the gym in over 3 weeks.  The most important thing

Overwhelmed From the Good Stuff?

By jennifer | February 26, 2018

Whoohoo!  You did it!  You landed that big client.  You made the deal.  You got the contract and they paid you what you asked for with zero negotiation.  You have a brief moment of elation and then … it’s weird.  You can’t explain it.  You just don’t feel pumped … you start questioning not only the deal but your whole business, maybe your whole life.  What happened? It’s overwhelm.  You

The Tolerated Basement

By jennifer | February 18, 2018

We talk about tolerations a lot in coaching.  Tolerations start when we don’t address things that weigh on us.  Typically, it’s a task we need to complete and continually find reasons not to do it.  At some point finding reasons and excuses ends up taking up more time and precious brain space than just doing the task.  Or, deciding you don’t need or ever want to complete the task.  Sometimes

Silent Influence

By jennifer | February 11, 2018

I’m a yapper … I talk … a lot … it’s one of those things that I often pick on myself for … “Ugh, why did I talk so much?  I’m so annoying.”  During a group project in college, one of the participants was first to talk and hard to interrupt.  The other person just liked to argue and debate.  I could see these circling conversations weren’t moving the project

A Personal Trainer for Your Mind

By jennifer | February 4, 2018

I continuously get stuck on answering the question of, “What is a Personal Coach?”  I have colleagues who have these beautiful one liners that are powerful, engaging, and colorful.  I’ve tried that approach and it just isn’t me.  I feel like I’m trying too hard.  I’ve been known to ramble through a tirade of items I have used coaches for over the years.  Sometimes I will say something that speaks

Is It Time to Leave your Job?

By jennifer | January 28, 2018

I regularly receive calls from executives in crisis.  By the time they make the call, they have left their job.  Sometimes, stress pushed them to quit before securing a new position, but often they were asked to leave.  As we work on plans for new employment, clients start dissecting the details of what happened.  They begin to see what they couldn’t while in the everyday work.  Clients are also surprised

The Power of Color

By jennifer | January 21, 2018

Once when I was experiencing overwhelm, a coach wanted to help calm my anxiety and started asking me about color to help create a place of joy and ease.  It was an exercise that would lead to me consciously considering color in a bigger way. My mom is a talented seamstress and I spent time with her at the fabric store growing up.  As a result, I have a love

Why We Don’t Do the Work?

By jennifer | January 14, 2018

I work with clients who depend on referrals to keep their businesses going at a slow roar.  These realtors, financial planners, and insurance agents are always in demand and busy … for their business to grow, they require a pipeline of new clients. Keeping current clients engaged and attracting new clients requires work.  Work that may involve networking, cold calling, and check-ins.  It may include new programs, strategies, and offerings.
