Do you have the answer?

I have worked in the television news business for many years. As a journalist, I have the responsibility of sharing good stories and really bad stories with you, the viewer.

Redefining Kindness

It’s your strength, not your weakness. Recently, I was talking with some girlfriends and one of them said, “I’ve been trying so hard to be more kind, but damn, it’s hard to do.” I totally understand my friend’s frustration. I get that it’s much easier to be negative, or lash out at someone, or decide

Kindness and Masculinity

As a man who supports people in cultivating fulfilling relationships in all areas of their lives, I am often asked about the quality of kindness and how that fits in to our ideas around masculinity. Unfortunately, there has been a persistent belief that “nice guys finish last,” and that in order for a man to

Trust Kindness.

Have you ever felt like your life has become a blur of work, errands, and appointments? Do you struggle to find time to enjoy your friends or your favorite hobby? Why is that? Why are we in such a hurry? Why can’t we slow down? Could it be that we are running from something unsettled inside ourselves? I’ve

Bee Kind.

Bees are my favorite insect. They are industrious, hard-working and community minded.  They are part magic, part weapon. Their feet are dusted with the spices of thousands of flowers and yet their stinger can cause great damage. Bees are a balance of beauty and pain. As a true crime producer,  I have to have a
I was married for 18 years before I realized I was in an abusive relationship, and then it took another 6 years before I was able to execute an international escape to save my adult daughter and myself. Sadly, abusive, rude, demeaning and belittling behaviors have become normalized in our society. Most people, myself included,

Make Every Day Earth Day

We celebrated Earth Day last month, but why not honor Mother Earth every day?  Let’s start making changes that affect our planet for good right now!  Using acts of kindness is an easy way to begin making an impact and teaching our children the importance of helping out so they can carry on new traditions. 
Our relationships really hinge on the words we use. While we might intend to use our words to get closer or simply ask our partner a question, we may inadvertently be pushing the other person away. Eliminating these key “watch words” will help deliver your message the way you intend. It might seem like a

Proud To Be Me

A Kind Sign

When I decide on a specific goal, I get super focused.  I can see the big picture, but I am also aware that it takes small steps to reach the ultimate goal.  I understood this concept at a very young age.  As a member of The Girl Scouts of America, I had to complete small

Do You Have a Hard Time Receiving?

As an elite femininity coach, I’m constantly focused on one of the five feminine qualities that I teach my clients so they can tap into the full expression of their feminine essence and live more playful and purposeful lives.

Cruelty-Free Protein Options

One of the most popular questions I encounter as a nutritionist is “Where do I find my protein?” This question is especially recognized in the vegan community, as it is common for vegans to consider ample protein intake a hard task to achieve, but it actually doesn’t have to be as daunting as it may

FREE STUFF ROCKS

November 13th is World Kindness Day… I have always believed that kindness is a strength.  Some people may think kindness is a weakness, but in reality, our kind actions, no matter large or small, help to unite our world.  We are born to be kind, but often life can harden us and keep us so
“There’s no place for kindness in business.” I was told this throughout a decade of working in corporate finance. As soon as I stepped into the workplace, I was unable to wear emotions on my sleeve. I am here to make the case for kindness in business. While I can’t save the world alone, I can certainly show

Motherhood Mania
