Are you living a double life?

Our parents taught us to do it. You know… Live two lives. It’s that form of code switching that just about every working person has tried at least once in their lives: other than a couple photos of family on the desktop wall paper or on your desk, you pretty much keep to yourself. All they know about you at the job is your work during business hours.…

“No one goes it alone.” You’ve heard that one before, and it’s true. But I joke that my business requires bodies and bots to make it tick. One way that I’ve been able to start up my businesses and make them viable quickly is technology. After all, I walk my talk about these “weapons of mass innovation.” No way it has ever been “just me” except for when…

Living with intent can get you places!

Is your biggest flex that you’ve never actually sought a role in your career…people just came to you? I can relate. About 90% of the positions in my career were “taps on the shoulder.” But is this really a way to live?

Is it really imposter syndrome you are feeling?

Imposter syndrome has become a popular catch-all phrase for all sorts of self-doubt. But is what you are feeling really imposter syndrome? Let’s take a moment to talk about your confidence without all the trendy, arm-chair psychology that has become popular on the Internet and at women’s conferences. The term itself has been around since the 70s, but sometimes what you are feeling is simply a lack of…

YOUR BRAND….

Is the intentional experience people have with you. Everything you do to ensure it is simply an expression of it or an amplification of it. Your goal is to produce loyalty. Surprisingly, you can actually accomplish this with limited awareness. So if you only have three followers, it’s about them being true believers and if they are willing to jump into action for you—beyond likes and comments. What…

Today’s #NSCRockstarLeadership Tip of the Day provides one strategy, the echo effect, that may help you create the kind of buzz about you that matters.…

This Little Girl Was Me

Or is it? Some think if not for the grainy image, it is probably my daughter Joni and for a great reason– we look exactly alike at every age. This little girl never thought she couldn’t. She always knew she could, even when she was picked on by others. She always beat her own path and marched to the beat of her own drum. Eventually, she would have something to say,…
