Why You Shouldn’t Believe My Instagram Feed

Don’t believe what you see on my Instagram or Facebook page.

And yet, lately when I […]

So I spent some time on the phone with her one quiet Friday afternoon and told her all the things I thought she needed to do to make her offerings more clear, unique, and benefit-oriented.

If You Hang Up On Gary Coxe, He Calls You Right Back

Gary Coxe never takes no for an answer—and it’s why he’s killing it in business and in life (and called into my show from some tropical island). It’s also how he got on my show! Because he and his staff just keep at it. Turns out, he’s also charisma personified.

You Don’t Need Power Tools to Be a Feminist

I know what I’m good at. I know what I want to do. And I know what I have zero interest in doing for myself: filing my own taxes, perfecting homemade hollandaise sauce, putting up my own preserves, or hanging cupboards. I don’t want to spend a second longer in a Home Depot than I […]
