What’s In Your Backyard?

When you hear the word ‘adventure’ the first things that come mind may be extreme. Thrill-seeking, adrenaline-pumping, heart-racing exploits that you don’t get to experience often, or that you may have to travel and invest a lot of dollars in to enjoy. While those are indeed adventures, there’s something to be said about smaller, quieter activities that may […]

The Power of Getting Outside

I’m obviously a big proponent of using adventure — particularly outdoor adventure — to tap further into who we are at our core and to fuel the momentum to live colorful, joy-filled lives. For me, getting out into the wild and exploring gives me clarity when I’m feeling fuzzy and gives me glimpses of my […]

Feeling a little Nostalgic…

Think back to your childhood. What are the first images to come to mind? Mine are filled with carefree bike rides, hide and seek with my neighbors and lots of pool time. Summers were our time to explore. Streetlights were our alarm clock. We were always outdoors. Instant nostalgia. For some reason, we’ve lost some […]

How are you Planning to Slay the Rest of the Year?

Fun fact about me: I spent the first 6 years of my professional life doing strategy and analytics at big corporations. I learned a few things from my work in this space: 1) I was not meant to work from a cubicle and 2) the importance of analyzing where you’ve been when it comes to […]

And while I’ve been highlighting some women who are making history over on the Color Outside Instagram page, I want to make sure to highlight one woman that’s making history, in particular. You.

As a teen and young adult, I found the importance of patience with the RIGHT thing — love, the right career path, […]

What Makes You Amazing?

“People always tell you to be humble. When was the last time someone told you to be great. Be great. Be amazing. Don’t let anyone tell you what the f*ck you can’t do.” – Kanye West When I coach women, one of the questions I ask them pretty early on in our process is “What are you […]

How To Stop Caring What Others Think Of You

I have a friend, we’ll call her Kay. Throughout her childhood and into being a young adult, Kay had only one priority— she desperately wanted people to like her. In high school she blended in mostly; not the most popular, not the outcast. But, at the slightest sign that anyone showed her attention, she’d do […]

Playtime is not just for kids

When’s the last time you played? I’m talking full-on, delightfully silly, fun on fun on fun PLAY. For most of us, it was probably sometime when we were kids. Maybe when we were teens if we were lucky. But as much as we relegate playtime to little kid stuff, it’s actually really important for us […]
