The Awesomeness of Thriving

The Awesomeness of Thriving

You know when you get a new car and all of a sudden you notice the same car you’ve just purchased all over the road? Well, last year I read and wrote a musing on Arianna Huffington’s book “Thrive” and since then I seem to hear this word and concept discussed a lot. I’m currently […]

Grateful to be Thriving

Grateful to be Thriving

I’m always amazed when I learn something that I should already know. I had the immense privilege and pleasure of meeting with the Executive Director of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in New York last weekend. We met because I am heavily involved with a CBS special honoring cancer survivors and thrivers called Jump Jive […]

A Note from Kate Richardson xoxo

A Note from Kate Richardson xoxo

I just received a lovely e-mail from the inimitable, always adorable, Kate Richardson, whom I affectionately call “Peanut.” Kate competed in the 2004 Olympics for Canada and helped UCLA win back-to-back NCAA titles in 2003 and 2004—not to mention her individual titles and being named Pac-10 Female Student-Athlete of the Year in 2006. Today, Kate is […]

“Option B” by Sheryl Sandberg

It wasn’t the title of this book that made me want to check it out, but instead the subtitle: “Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy.” Who of us hasn’t done all three of those things repeatedly in our lifetimes. And yet, I persistently seek to learn from those who have managed all of these […]

58-Day Challenge: Complete!

YAY! I did it! My 58 Day Challenge has come to a close. As a reminder, I started my journey following in the footsteps of fellow coach and dear friend Randy Lane and his 50-mile run for his 50th birthday. Inspired by Randy, I challenged myself to do some sort of exercise each of the […]

Alone Sucks

Alone Sucks

A new book is coming out shortly, entitled “Alone Sucks.” The author is Timothy Eldred, a lovely gentleman I met on a flight a few years ago. He sent me the manuscript which is frighteningly spot on and is helping to open a fresh conversation. We live in an era where it is easier than ever […]

The Selfless Good Deed Challenge

The Selfless Good Deed Challenge

Someone asked me the other day to describe my husband and the simplest explanation I immediately thought of was, “Well, Bobby is the only person I know who says ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to Siri.” Seriously. He does. What’s most impressive is that there is seemingly no benefit that comes from being polite to an […]
