What my mother taught me

What my mother taught me

May 9, 2019

I am who I am because of my mother.

In the “nature vs. nurture” psychology debate, there are two ways to determine human behavior. Nature, your genes, or nurture, personal experiences. In my mind, it’s a mix of the two with one main source: our mothers.

We’re in an age where becoming professionals who practice contemplation is more important than ever. In the midst of all the activity and craziness around us, we have to learn to become more thoughtful and reflective about our thinking and feelings to lead more meaningful lives.

Dealing with disappointment after an accomplishment

Dealing with disappointment after an accomplishment

January 31, 2019

A marathon takes months of planning, preparation, and anticipation. After more than a year of training and waiting, I ran the NYC Marathon on November 4. But, just a few hours after finishing, I found myself dealing with an unforeseen and upsetting reality.

A transformative mindset enables us to find the energy we need to achieve our goals and turn our dreams into reality. And you need accountability to create that mindset.

After finishing up with a client project at Siegfried, I found myself with a little more free time. To make the most of that (and the fact that Siegfried supports our community service efforts), I logged onto Hands on Charlotte, an organization I already volunteer with, and searched their calendar of events.

Travel for work and make it fun

Travel for work and make it fun

September 20, 2018

During a glorious three-week break between my final busy season (so fun to type out!) and beginning with Siegfried this past April, I spent some time doing a little self-reflection. For my sake, I won’t reveal the full extent of my findings. But, I will share that I was disappointed by the lack of travel I’d undertaken so far.

Why we need friends

Why we need friends

July 5, 2018

We need people in our lives. It’s a simple fact that we’ve all faced at one point or another. We simply cannot exist without other people. (Can you imagine a Starbucks without a friendly, peppy barista behind the espresso machine? The horrors!) And what do we need more than people?

I'm a Ringleader. And I'm OK with it.

I'm a Ringleader. And I'm OK with it.

June 14, 2018

I did a quick double take when I saw my Fascination Advantage Assessment result. “You are The Ringleader.” My mind raced to all the infamous ringleaders I knew, both fact and fiction: Al Capone, Lord Voldemort, John Gotti, Darth Sidious. I didn’t feel great.
