Of course after toning the language down, I’m never quoted as accurately as I’d like. But at least no one can accuse me of a boring interview! My focus…

As a professional-organizer-cum-accountability-guru, I spend my time teaching folks how to make their days easier. But that doesn’t mean I’m some kind of Little Miss Smarty Pants Perfect — who’s known the answer to life, the universe, and everything since conception. (It’s 42, by the way.) My own road to simplicity is littered with plenty…

“Who are you?” Oh my lord — huge question! Given one of those dingleberry “self-identify-in-50-words-or-less” quizzes, I’d be hard-pressed to concoct an answer that makes anything resembling logical sense. As a year-round RVer, I’m all about exploration — but nothing’s quite so comforting as returning to a home port for some tribal reconnect. My top…

In defiance of “The Man,”…

I remember the first time a well-meaning leadership-development-pal suggested that I needed a “bio.” Upon asking why, I was told, “It highlights your accomplishments and talents. It makes you appear credible to your clients. It’s the core of your branding. ” (Yeah. I’m pretty sure this AIN’T what she had in mind!) Putting The ‘Mad’…

When you hit the road as a full-time RVer, the shift can be a tad jarring. Your local friends, social calendar, routines — all gone in the blink of an eye. How do you maintain that oh-so-important sense of larger community when you’re always on the go? I don’t know about you, but didn’t choose…

A lot of extremely misguided (and generally pretty unhappy) people think that “success” in life should be measured in terms of your credentials or cash flow or the things you’ve accumulated — but I’ll let you in on a little secret (a-la Fight Club ). You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have…

The home-based worker is an entirely different animal than the typical employee. When your office is in your home, it's hard to keep your private life from intruding on your work, and your business from taking over your personal time. Let's examine the species “work-at-homer” in its natural habitat and watch the life-or-death struggle for…
