Exploring and expanding your Genius

Martha was at the end of her rope from a recent divorce, parenting two children under five, on food stamps, and the three of them sleeping in one room. She was devastated after being turned down for ten volunteer opportunities, even those that matched her qualification. She was dismissed not for her talents but because she would need to bring her children with her. At the pit of her disappear she thought, what is one thing that I can do well? Long story shorter, she offered a free meal to [...]

What Entrepreneurs say about the Genius Report?

Renewed passion I just had my Genius Report Session with Nattalee last week, and I can say it has energized me along a very unexpected trajectory. I don't know what the long-term effect will be, but in the short term, I feel like somehow I was given permission or support to claim space as a writer that I simply had not seen before. The early returns are very illuminating and energizing. Thank you for this fantastic gift. To be continued. . . From: Jeffrey Schmidt Agency for Earth I own [...]

Communicating with Influence – How to say no

Increase your influencing abilities with your team, boss, friends and spouse. To have leadership influence – you cannot be a people pleaser – someone who says yes, even when they want to say no is known as a yes-man (or person). Everyone knows at least one yes-person, they are the one which is predicted to respond with “Yes, I can do that and that and that.” We love our yes-person until they either burn out or blow up. I was a full-time people-pleaser. I said yes, even when my intuition [...]

What are you relying on?

Keeping up with our changing times requires a whole lot more resilience and resoluteness than most had anticipated. Did you miss the boat?  Are you doomed for despair and victimization?  No way! One of the most amazing aspects of chaos is that it contains constant motion and flow. At any moment, we can choose to flow with peace, calm, and hopefulness.  The keyword is the moment. When we can identify we are moving to overwhelm, there is still the awareness to redirect our thoughts and actions. I rely on favorite [...]

Self-Love is Super-Food

What is self-love? Is it blowing kisses to the bathroom mirror? Does it mean wrapping our arms around ourselves when we feel sad or joyful? There is another direction. Loving ourselves is vital to our well-being, our community, and our world. Human Design has a term, “Enlightened Selfishness.” The opposite of being ego-centered. Though it could look the same from the outside looking in. It is the kind of selfishness that considers our distinctiveness first and foremost; knowing and accepting our skills, talents, and even our limitations. When we can [...]

What the Trump!?

Rarely do I speak on politics or any specific social events. Not particularly from denial but from a deeper calling to stay focused on my mission and support others to do the same.  However, considering all that has happened in our worldly affairs of late, I offer you my voice, light and hope. Love triumphs over hate – always! Etched in my mind, like it was yesterday, are the events of 9/11, the media hype, and the collective reactions from outrage to unification. 9/11 served as a great training ground [...]

How do you stay inspired?

This quote came from a coaching buddy I met 2004 as we're completing our coaching certification. It inspires me each time I read it. Believing and specializing in the impossible takes a special kind of person. If you’re reading this then you know that we must remain open to connect and commune with others who share our perspective and can inspire us to stay the course. If we were meant to do it alone we wouldn’t be living on planet with 7+ Billion other beings. How do you stay inspired, [...]

Obligation or Pleasure?

As a child did you feel like you had to ‘behave’ to survive? Were you raised in a controlling environment? Did your parents lay down the law? Did you hide out, become an over achiever or people please so not to get in trouble from an angry, depressed or emotionally unstable parent? These are just some of the behavior patterns many us has had to maneuver in our early years. Besides mentioned, my overlay included Catholicism (parochial education) and old-school Italian ethics and standards. A client, Susie (not her real [...]
