TRIBE Tips Tuesday - June 18 - You CAN be a millionaire!

Jun 18, 2019

Money. Money. Money.  I read a lot of books about money.  Maybe because my first jobs were with a major investment company and then a large regional bank, I'm comfortable seeing money as a commodity.  I don't fear it.  But I definitely worry about having enough to do the things I want to do.

So you would think with all this research and worry, I'd be sitting on a big retirement account and diligently paying myself first year after year.  Sadly, I am late to the...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - June 11 - Celebrate all the moments in your life

Jun 11, 2019

June weekends are full of some of life's biggest moments - graduations and weddings.  It's easy to get caught up in the excitement and carried along with the flow of events.  This is just when it's important to stop, take a deep breath, look around and cherish the small moments happening within this larger context.

I find the most difficult thing in a weekend of rushing from one thing to the next, is to focus on what is happening right in front of me.  When I'm the host,...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - June 4 - What emotions (and actions) do the words 'empty nest' stir up in you?

Jun 04, 2019

Most of my friends have recently become empty nesters or are soon to become empty nesters.  So it's something we talk about.  A lot!  And it's what served as the catalyst for Lee, Carolyn and I to start TRIBE Trips and Retreats.

It's both an exciting time and a tumultuous time.  There's sadness that an amazing phase of life is coming to an end.  There's excitement about the drop in workload (laundry, meal planning, prom dress shopping, etc.) that's about to...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - May 28 - Have you met the monster in your closet?

May 28, 2019

One of the shared common fears of childhood is a monster hiding under the bed or lurking in the closet.  That beast who could appear in our nightmares and only an adult could banish.  For me, the monster was always in the closet and do this day, I do not want to sleep with a closet door open.

As I moved out of childhood, the thing I was afraid of seemed to grow up with me.   It evolved from a physical being to a mental demon that could wreak havoc with my thoughts....

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - May 21 - Transition shout out - love where you are going

May 21, 2019

Transitions are happening in our life all the time.  Really.  All. The. Time.  It's often hard to understand how you are feeling about them.

Graduations.  Weddings.  Deaths.  Children.  New Jobs.  New Cars.  Adding a puppy to your life.  A kitchen renovation.  Retirement!

There are so many moments in life when we are saying good-bye to one thing and hello to another.  It can be challenging to maneuver through the wave of emotions...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - May 14 - It's never the wrong time to start down the right path

May 14, 2019

Oh the aspirations of young girls.  To be a teacher, ballerina, princess or some lovely mash up of all three.  How beautiful (and pink) so many girls envision their future.  I was not one of those girls (though you know I'm still passionate about pink).

I dreamed about travel, adventure, and daring deeds.  I saw my life exploding out of the small Southern towns in which I was raised.  I knew that I would one day walk on all 7 continents and circumvent the world in a...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - April 23 - The biggest fear of all

Apr 23, 2019

Eleven years ago this month I made the decision to leave the corporate world and start my life as an entrepreneur.  Just typing that sentence and thinking about all that it represents still gives me chills to this day. It is impossible for me to imagine what my life would look like today if I had not made that decision all those years ago.

I can easily put myself back in that space.  I remember the fear.  Well lots of fears actually:

  • fear I wouldn't have the...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - April 9 - All You Really Need is .... Synchronicity

Apr 09, 2019

The Beetles might have harmonized perfectly that 'All You Need is Love', but maybe what you really need is to add a little dash of synchronicity.

Synchronicity is a concept that gained fame thru the writings of Carl Jung.  He saw this as a way to define those occurrences in life that seem so coincidental they must be more than just happenstance.  He called these occurrences meaningful coincidences, extending them to the mystical and paranormal.  And scientists have...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - March 26 - Sunshine, Puppies and a Deadline

Mar 26, 2019

Wow - I don't know about you, but it doesn't take much to distract me from getting work done.  Today I had an extreme set of distractions attacking me as I tried to write, work, pull tax stuff together and get my home ready for visitors.

Puppies!  

Who can work when there is a puppy around?  Hard, right?  Well that was really compounded today as I had 6 puppies.  And not just any puppies, but SIX RESCUE GOLDEN RETRIEVER PUPPIES!

Fortunately, since it was sunny,...

TRIBE Tips Tuesday - March 19 - My Best Badass Day: Chasing Humpback Whales

Mar 19, 2019

I feel like I have so many things to share from my latest travels!  First, I now know why so few people travel to Antartica - it is very, very far away.  And definitely not an easy trip.  I was gone for 15 days.  This included 2 days of adventure in Argentina and 3 days of excursions in Antartica.  With the remaining 10 days being spent getting there and back.  

That's a lot of transit time - planes, cars and ships - and I managed to enjoy just...
