I Thought I Was a Sucky Coach

Clarity is very important to me and I write about it a lot. The problem is, sometimes it’s easy to say “clarity” but are you really getting to the bottom of it all, punching through the blind spots and seeing what you really need to see? Sometimes your logical mind says “I am clear on what […]

Re: Your Itty Bitty Shitty Committee

You are about to do something spectacular, finally step up and step out of what has been confiding you and say YES! to your big dream and big vision. Somehow, with all the excitement about the possibilities, exhilaration around the potentialities, you got the butterflies in the stomach and before you can catch ’em (maybe you […]

To Charge Or Not To Charge For Your “Discovery Sessions”?

This is a question that has been asked over and over again – “should I be charging for my discovery session/enrollment conversation?” There is no “should” – only what is in alignment with You. For most coaches who are starting out, offering “free” sessions can be a great way to get more people into conversation. Not […]

It’s OK to Say “Thank You and Now F— Off” To Your Trainings and Certifications

I don’t usually talk much about my 8-year double-Ivy education odyssey. I did my undergrad in Yale College and went on to Harvard for my Masters in Architecture degree. I think somehow I have been “denying” it because I am not even sure how relevant it is to what I am doing today. (hmm, let’s leave the “bringing all of […]

Client Spotlight :: 4 Weeks To Finding Her True Voice

Dana Dinnawi (Empowered Wellness, www.danadinnawi.com) is a model gold-star client. She was determined to get the most out of our 4 weeks together – she took massive action and was not afraid to look at what was holding her back. When we first talked, Dana was plugging along nicely with a couple of detox programs […]

What If “Digging Deep” Is Overrated?

I am contradicting myself. I have been telling people to DIG freakin’ deep. And lot’s of coaches and personal development whatever also favor the idea of “digging deep.” You know what, that’s cool. I love contradiction because it forces me to get clear. I LOVE digging deep with my clients, and they LOVE the breakthroughs that […]

slideberry Has To Die

This is not a drill. This is not a stunt. This is for real. This is serious shit. This is not some “redo the tagline and change the color” kind of “rebranding” – which seems to diminish the magnitude of its meaning. This is a complete redesigning, rediscovering, rebooting, reemerging of “me”. This is “Poetic […]

UNDONE-For-You :: On “Pulling It Off”

A couple of weeks ago I went to the hair salon, told them to cut my hair really short so I don’t have to go back for another 3 months. The guy asked me “is the buzzer ok?” and I said “cool” (partly out of some teenage rage I was going through…) And BUZZED I got. I […]

{{ Expert Interview }} Publish Your Book + Score Speaking Gigs

I “met” Barbara Appelbaumn through Facebook – and was so impressed by her energy, enthusiasm and achievement. Even with MS – a challenging health condition, she gets more done than most of us mere mortals… she has self-published her book, and it seems like every week she is telling us how many new speaking gigs […]

UNDONE-For-You :: On “Showing Up” and “Trusting”

Everyone is patting everyone else’s back for “showing up” on things. It’s getting cliché, as in, we want to make the other person feel good by complementing him/her for just being physically “there” in the room, clicking a button to attend a webinar, or pushing a few buttons to be on a call. And everyone walk away being […]
