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 […]

Why Online Dating Is So Much Better Now (Kind of)

I’ve recently re-entered the online dating pool, and surprise surprise, it’s just as much a hot mess as it was last time I was here. The bare torsos, the cringeworthy cliches, the fevered search for the next quick hookup.

Don’t Give Up Just Because Everyone Else Wants It, Too

You are afraid to go for a thing. An opportunity, a job, a promotion. Your main reason is because, well, other people want it, too.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this. Including the other day, when a young writer told me that she would love to pitch magazines with ideas she has, […]
