Emily in Paris Meet Andrea in Paris

n Paris was and is one of my guilty binge-worthy pleasures.  The setting, the clothes, the characters.    I prepared for my vacation there this week by doing all the normal things one does for a trip.   I packed, organized, and shut out all the unthinkable things that occurred during the week by rewatching...

Conversations With People Who Hate Me

Some titles are just so good that I can’t stop myself from finding out more.  The podcast, Conversations with People Who Hate Me was just such a temptation.  I heard about the podcast through another podcast, Your Undivided Attention, which has become a regular in my listening routine.  Why?  Because as part of my own...

30 is the New 20

I appreciate it when a “mistake” is so perfect it sets off a chain reaction of good.  That is exactly what happened when a friend recommended to a group of us that we watch an episode of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday.  The episode was celebrating the 20-year anniversary of Marianne Williams’ book, A Return to...

Using Music to Boost Your Mental Health

Middle school through high school is when we mentally embed most of our favorite songs.  By your mid-30’s you only add about 5-10% of new music.  That helps explain why Motown, disco, and Michael Jackson get me moving, yet rap and hip-hop never got on to my playlist.

The Real Social Dilemma

As much as I like writing about passion and paychecks, I believe there is a real social dilemma we are not speaking about.  Knowing I view all questions through the lens of positive psychology, and the belief that all human problems have human solutions, let me know if you know the answer (or a good...

Paycheck or Passion: Is There a Generational Divide?

Paycheck or Passion is such a fun topic for me.  I have written and spoken about the elusive paycheck, passion, and happiness debate many times over the years.  Currently, I am having fun watching how different generations are embracing the issue with newfound post-pandemic fervor. Imagine this.  You are a parent.  Your twenty-one-year-old child advises...

Politics and The Business of Success

Remember when being political in business meant someone was kissing up to the boss to leapfrog over you for a promotion? Remember when being politically astute in business meant aligning with someone who would champion your career? Am I the only one who longs to return to that version of politics in business?

Channeling Your Inner Ukrainian

Do you remember the first time you wondered if you would be brave enough to take an action you knew others were brave enough to take? Do you remember your answer when you asked yourself, “Will I be willing to do that?” I am the girl who wrote the book, Don’t Die Waiting to be...

Suicide, Positivity and Well-Being

Suicide, positivity, and well-being may seem like odd bedfellows – and outside my wheelhouse – but for more years than I wish to remember, I have been confronted with the seeming never-ending cross-section of these three topics.  I urge you to watch the video conversation between myself and Jack Colton, CEO of Silent Rich. As...
