According to The Clifton Strengths Assessment, there are thirty-four strengths and themes that deeply affect our personal and professional lives. When we encourage each other to “live into your strengths” it is imperative to know what they are and how to manage them. A dialogue to help you on your journey!!
Adoption isn't for everyone, but when it is, there is much to learn and implement.  Practicing inclusion is a way to deepen that relationship in ways that might surprise you. 
The Enneagram is a great personality assessment tool to help us understand our personality and how we interact with others.  This is a 3-way dialogue with Enneagram 8's and how we thrive while often being misunderstood. 
Financial stress is one of the major stressors in our world today and during expected and unexpected transitions, it can be even more difficult.  Even though there were record lows of unemployment (in the USA) even before the pandemic, this pandemic has certainly impacted the financial health of many people across the globe.
In this final episode, we will explore a GLOBAL approach that impacts all of us around the world.
This is Part 3 in a four-part series on Models of Sustainability.  In this dialogue we will be talking about an international approach to providing sustainability to marginalized communities in Nagpur, India.
Food insecurity was lower in 2019 than in 2018.   Perhaps we are growing in the right direction but, in my opinion, there should not be any food insecurity in a country that has so many resources.  Today’s guest will help us understand why those food resources are not as accessible as they should be, what they are doing about and how you can join in the cause.
This is the first in a four-part series on Models of Sustainability.  Since models are impacted by the location they are in, I decided to embark on a four-part series on the subject.  These episodes will cover and address best practices in Local, National (USA), International and Global contexts.  So be sure to join us for the future posts that will explore those areas and reveal some common elements among them all.
Farewell 2020

Farewell 2020

Being an Overcomer

Being an Overcomer


I was interviewed on "How to Win at Everything".  All of us can “win” at what we do but the question is, “are we willing to address the challenges along the way with healthy approaches?” (aka. being an overcomer). 2In this interview you will hear what I learned through some extremely difficult situations in my life.  I share what worked, what didn’t work and how I choose to live my story in hopes to encourage you in yours.
