    My 2018 Running Playlist

    Every runner knows that running is a mindset game more than a physical one. When I first started running a decade ago, I would listen to podcasts. Now, I still sometimes do that (or an audiobook), but last year when I picked up my running shoes again, I found that peppy music was what my heart needed to really break the barriers for those 5k and 10k runs! For today’s #FridayFun, I’m sharing with you my 2018 running playlist. It’s a mix of genres and songs that speak to my heart. Many of them have come from some of my favorite people and were added to the list because let’s…

    9 Ideas to Network More

    Let’s talk about networking. Everyone needs to network more, and many people get intimidated by it. Including, sometimes, yours truly. Yes. It’s true. When I over think it, I get totally intimidated by the networking idea. Which is so silly! Because, after chatting with my husband the other night, I realized that networking actually energizes me! And here I’ve been believing the silly little lie that it drains me. Nope. What actually drains me is not knowing where to start or just plain procrastinating on it. That’s draining. So I made a list for myself; I’m challenging myself to do all nine of these items in the next thirty days…

    I Can’t Be A Good Coach and a Good Business Woman at the Same Time

    We’ve been facing lies and labels here since before there was an actual big blue couch. It’s just what my besties and I do. Recently I discovered an interesting lie rumbling around in my head: I Can’t Be A Good Coach and a Good Business Woman at the Same Time. Hear me out on this. Anytime we start a sentence with “I can’t,” we should pay attention. We should pay attention because what follows is almost always a big. Fat. Lie. We can do way more than we give ourselves credit for. You can do way more than you give yourself credit for! And so can I. This lie that…
