Do you ever have one of those days? One of those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, lose your keys, run late for your appointment and just end up in a black hole of a mood?

There are a million reasons why one might end up in a crap mood, but there is j...

I just got back from the WIFS National Conference in Louisville, KY.  

There was a lot of talk from the stage and in the side conversations about bringing gender equality to the industry.

Here we are stuck at 15% female advisors, as we have been for decades. What ha...

When it comes to the topic of building a purpose-driven practice, there are three types of advisors:

  1. Those that get it

  2. Those who don’t care

  3. Those who get it, but don’t know what to do

Those who get it,...

I took a vacation (a REAL vacation) to the South of France.  Every year, I travel with two other women and this was our ninth trip together.

As we were wandering the streets of old Antibes we happened upon an artist’s tiny lair. We were drawn to the charcoal and ink por...

I was in my workout class this morning asking myself, “Why do I do this?”

I have a few chronic injuries from my days in the Army that flare up from time to time. Right now, after two weeks of traveling it all hurts: left heel, right ankle, knee, hip, lower back, shoulde...

I was trading emails with a long-time advisor friend of mine about purpose, specifically his purpose. He, like many advisors, is feeling a little unsatisfied in his work. He knows he needs to find his purpose, his WHY, but is struggling to nail it down.

I have been told by many advisors that they were attracted to The Intentional Advisor initially because of the work/life balance I described in my presentations.

It was all true. Emphasis on "was". 

-I did run my practice in about 30 hours per week with a lot of cof...

When I hear someone talking about wanting to help me “close”, “overcome objections” or “disturb”, I know they are not MY people.

Salesman do those things, but professionals don’t.

You might say, but what’s the big deal, that’s just how they describe getting hired!?  But...

My husband recently sent me this post from Instagram.  Of course I laughed and then I thought to myself, how sad is this?

It is totally true!

School teaches us so many things, but it doesn’t teach us even the basics of how to function as adults in the world.
