I loved the movie City Island. It was laugh-out-loud funny with a point. I love when movies provide this type of entertainment.   What's the point? We sometimes hide things from those we love because we are afraid they won't love us if they find out

  I am working with two professional organizations on a similar problem-the leaders do not feel the local chapters represent the image and message of the parent organization.   The problem is that in the last three years, as their members scra

When I started blogging for the Huffington Post, I felt I had to make sure what I said was profound. Not that I didn't think everything I write, including my posts on Women on the Verge. But Huffington is now the biggest site in the blogoshpere. I felt a r

How often do you say, "What an idiot?"   I was first in line to go through the security station at my gate in the airport in Amsterdam. Before I could get to the conveyor belt, an airline employee took my passport and told me to go to one of the tab

The theme for my coaching this week was: Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Yet you might not know you chose a path of greatness over enjoyment until you are in pain or numbed out by meaningless stress. The topic first emerged when I woke up Tu
