Public Speaking for the Introvert

As a member of a business women’s group I’ve been to many conferences and monthly meetings which equates to seeing roughly about 500 public speakers in my life. Perhaps it’s more like 100-150, but still, that’s a lot! For every 20 mediocre speakers there’s one stand-out inspiring speaker who can motivate you to change the…

Contemplating the Chemicals of the Brain

The thing about neurodiversity is that sometimes, in treating it you lose a part of yourself. With regulation comes a certain quiet that you’re not used to, having struggled for so long to create stability then finding yourself in this serene existence you can forget who you are. Your chemicals become so regulated that somewhere on…

Podcasts for Your Brain

Ever since a fellow former-roller derby entrepreneur friend introduced me to the world of podcasts as a form of not only entertainment but a potential way to share an idea I’ve been kicking around, I have been an avid listener of them on any commute.  Now, I know I’m way late to this podcast party,…

Your Credit Score – Friend or Foe?

Oh boy. . . Here goes more of my open book philosophy. Here’s a little story about a girl who wasn’t really taught about money (even though her mom’s an accountant, go figure!) so she fell into the debt trap when the credit card companies handed out Mastercards like candy in the Student Union and…

Inspiring Words from Martin Luther King Jr.

I wanted to pop in for a hot second and share my favorite quote from MLK. He has TONS of incredibly thought-provoking quotes, having been a great man who wanted to affect great change, but this one keeps my head on straight when things are bringing me down. He’s also a fellow INFJ (blog coming…

The Paradox of Choice

If I’m to believe the internet, famous actress, Mae West said, at two different times, the following quotes: “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful” and “Too much of a good thing can be taxing” Preach it, Mae! I recently re-took the Myers-Briggs personality test through the 16 Personalities website (a fantastic resource…

The Horrors of Hoarding and the Happiness of Clearing Out

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! It’s been a hot minute since my last post thanks to the exciting endeavor of moving to St. Petersburg, FL with my boo!  We’re now residing in a very modest 625 square foot apartment with surprisingly roomy closets and minimal traditional furniture (you know, in order to fit my…
