Best Story

Do you know those colleagues who have been on committees way past the point where they want to be? One day in December I was walking past a colleague's office and did a double-take. She had gifts all over her office from floor to ceiling. There was not a spot on the floor where that was not covered. I turned to her and said, "Oh, you are doing that silent auction again." "Yes," she said exasperated. "I just cannot say no." To which I replied to her "You know Brenda, NO is a complete sentence." to which she responded in her New Orleans southern drawl, "THAT I have to get tattoed on my forehead." Now we don't need to get a dramatic "NO" tattooed to our foreheads, but we can know our value and our boundaries.

Origin Story

In 2015, I was in a senior position within an organization. I had a young family and I was climbing the corporate ladder. On the outside, it seemed like I had it all together. On the inside, I was unhappy, disconnected and stressed. I figured there had to be a better way. I became a certified professional coach to help myself and others navigate and uplevel careers and lives.
