The conversations that we are having as women are changing with such velocity. We are seeing in bold relief — even in our highest offices of government — how consistently overlooked, ignored, undervalued, and disparaged the experience of Woman has been and is still, in this patriarchal world. It is time for women to power...

It is not easy to get centered. Especially now. A trip through the headlines can whip us all around the whirligig. Not to mention the sheer daily brutality of living in a patriarchal world culture. If we don’t buckle up our protective gear, before we head out, we can get pierced by a stray arrow....

How does pain show up in your body? Do you stop when you feel it, and express it, in the moment? Or do you do a pain bypass and suck it up and move on, and ‘get over it,’ as if nothing actually happened to you? Or maybe you are more like me, and you...

Hope is such a bitch. Sometimes she is just a walk in the park. Things are easy, things are breezy. And sometimes it’s not easy. And there is no breeze. It’s just dust and tumbleweeds. And it feels like you are the last one standing. She will test you and work you and twist you...

Losses happen. Slumps happen. Fear creeps in. We get tired. Bored. Angry. Disheartened. Discouraged. Disempowered. Old. Older.

It is so easy for a woman to lose her way. A trip through the morning headlines can ignite grief, frustration, despair. A glance in the mirror can trigger disapproval which can be hard to shake. A day flooded with tasks, both surmountable and insurmountable, can suck some serious wind from anyone’s sails. And let’s...

I think the most miserable times I have ever experienced in my life have been when things were “fine.” Boyfriend is fine. Business is fine. Life is just fine. Similarly, I am not okay with okay. Family is okay. Apartment is okay. Work is going okay. Okay drains my life force and Fine makes my...

I want to tell you a story. I have been running my own business for over 20 years. As is the case with many women leaders, I did not start out wanting to run my own company. In fact, that was the last thing I wanted to do. What I had was a dream, and...
