Sometimes, I feel stuck or off course. Don’t you? But when I look back at my notes, usually from the start of the year, when I set my calendar and plan my goals, it turns out, I’m exactly where I said I would be. I guess it’s in my Achiever nature (Clifton Strengths) to be […]

What people are saying...
"an excellent instructor; she was knowledgeable but not intimidating, took time to explain things and was always approachable, made things fun."
She's absolutely committed to helping everyone around her achieve their best, overcome obstacles, push themselves to grow, and build long-lasting bonds of camaraderie.
This year, I joined a wine club instead of a gym. Yep, that’s what I said and I am standing by my choice. Here’s why… First, I’m (relatively) new in town and I want to meet people. Most people will advise you to join some sort of club, or association, that centers around something you […]
An ex-lover once called me spartan. I wasn’t sure how to take it at first. Then recently, a guest commented that the Dome was “well curated.” I took it as a compliment, even though I had never considered “curator” to be one of my job titles previously. Upon reflection, it turns out one of my talents is knowing […]
Like Frosty the Snowman, I count New Years’, the start of Spring, and birthdays as opportunities to check in with myself, to take stock, make plans (and adjustments!) My birthday falls close enough to mid-year that it’s a good time for me to check in with business and financial goals. Mid-year is also a good time to check […]
Even funnier than the coop I pulled together for the first chicks I brought home a year ago, was the year before that (2014 for those of you keeping track) when Wylie’s chickens came under attack by hawks and everyone rushed out to save the them. I told Wylie “I think you’ve got this, I’m […]
Spring has sprung! After a few false starts, it feels pretty much like summer here in Southern California during the day. The season is only betrayed by still cold nights. I’m learning again how our human rituals, (even administrative ones!) relate to nature’s seasons. This wasn’t always apparent to me when I lived in the city, where productivity […]
I learned last week that one of my former students killed herself. She was 14. I’m shaken and very sad. Some people I share with are incredulous, thinking what could be so bad at 14? What could drive a young person to make such a finite decision? I can understand, because I was about that […]
My financial education started in earnest with the Millionaire Mind seminar in 2006. I learned a lot and broke through some limiting beliefs I had around money, but the most valuable (and easiest to share) takeaway from that seminar was the JARS system. You’ve probably heard the advice to pay yourself first. The JARS system […]
A young man came to me to run his romantic situation by me, a second chance at the “real deal” with someone from his past. Evidently, it was a significant relationship. I listened and it sounded familiar, so I offered him some of advice from what I call The Saga of Dawn and A. […]
There have been many significant and emotional moments for me in this move. Filling out change of address forms… Turning over keys… That strange feeling of standing in your now vacant space for the very last time. Even though I’ve been unofficially living at the Dome since early fall, the actual act of moving in […]
