What I’m Doing (and Not Doing) in 2019

What I’m doing (and not doing) in 2019

2018 Recap 2018…that was SO last year. I mean, it was a year, for sure. There were some highs (I found my incredible business tribe). And some lows (ummm, cancer). And as always, lots of lessons along the way. The good thing about lessons??? They kickstart growth. So, as tough as 2018 was, I’m grateful…

Commitment. It’s THE word right now.

New Year’s resolutions are all the rage…at least for a few more days. Then, even the most well-intentioned human, will start to struggle with the list of promises they made to eat better, work out more, be nicer to their siblings or spouse, and take better care of themselves.

Paying it Forward (and a Free Strategy Call Offer!)

Paying It Forward

Sooooo…one of the key values at LillaBlu (and for me, really) is transparency. It can be hard, especially when we don’t want to bother or burden others…or if we’re afraid to be seen…or worried about what others will think. When I was trying to organize my thoughts to prep for a live video I did…

How the Right Help Can Make Work Fun, Easy, and Beautiful

Last week I had surgery. It was planned, although I don’t think we ever “plan” on having surgery! It wasn’t small, yet not so intense as some of the surgeries I’ve watched my parents and other loved ones go through… and it is already jam-packed with lessons for me. Some background I had a laparoscopic…
