Guest Post: The Power of Perks

One of my favorite things about “going out” is the potential. For new friends, clients, opportunities, laughter, exploration, (when I was single, boys that gave me butterflies). That’s why I’d rather go to an event where I know very few people. Though yes, I have to eek! go up to people and insert myself in Read more…

What happens when you force yourself to say “yes”

One of the many ways I’m blessed in my life are the Life of Yes℠ updates that Cheese-Its give me — “I decided to move to China!” “I told my crush my feelings!” “I asked for the promotion!” “The handygal you referred did such great work!” “Someone I met at one of your events hired Read more…

GUEST POST: 10 Things You Need to Know About Fear

One of my favorite aspects to Fear Experiment℠ (FE) was the parade of parents post-show coming up to me in the lobby and sending me notes, spewing words wrapped in loving awe and joy for their babies. Who happen to be 25, 37, 55 years old. This past FE was no exception, from Mom who flew in from Read more…

GUEST POST: “Soul” Food

This is a Guest Post by Cheryl Bennett, whom I met a bit over a month ago when she came in from Baltimore to attend Camp.

GUEST POST: Idea + An Actual Thing = Never A Failure

This is a Guest Post by a gal I met through one of my entrepreneur groups.  She put a big, hairy idea out there and then all of a sudden, it wasn’t an idea anymore. It was an actual thing. Over my twelve years of self-employment, I see over and over people wanting to _______, Read more…

GUEST POST: On using what you got

This is a Guest Post by Kelly Dilbeck. Often I’ll wax poetically my Guest Poster and then add a wee bit more wax. I’m not going to do that here. Her words and images below speak for themselves. All you need to know about Kelly: she’s the most generous person I know — with her time, her Read more…

Guest Post: That One Time at The Adele Concert

This is a Guest Post by Tocarra Mallard.   Tocarra came onto my radar when I saw her perform at the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival as part of The Kates (must see comedy in Chicago!) and fell immediately in love with her material, her persona, and her story. Being a quasi talent scout — I’m always Read more…

GUEST POST: Moving from the Big City to a Teeny, Tiny Town

This is a Guest Post by Katie Gillespie whom I met via a mutual friend and got to know when we debuted (and encore’d) our Stepping Careers in Fear Experiment℠. She’s front and center at :50 — The epitome of quiet courage, she continually blows my mind and makes me so proud. Below she talks about Read more…

Guest Post: Why I am not going to lose weight

Just back from Camp, the idea of people from all walks of life all struggling with similar issues, no matter how many degrees they have, what their pay-stub says, if they’re the life of the party or the party wallflower is at the forefront of my thoughts. It seemed good timing to share this is Guest Post by Shaily Read more…

GUEST POST: A Bit of Hope

This is a Guest Post by Kandy Christensen who came into my life six years ago, first from a far when she was in the audience for the original Fear Experiment℠ to cheer on her friend and second from a near aka my living room when she came over for my vision board event. And she’s never Read more…
