Debbie once said, “It is my mission day after day to find new ways to inspire others to go on this lifelong journey to clean up their past, to forgive themselves for their flaws and shortcomings, to make peace with their humanity, to open up to their divinity and allow themselves to be guided by a power greater than themselves.” In one of her final interviews before her death, people can gain insight on why she is one unique person with a rare gift, a person worthy of joining the Courage Club Continue reading

It's How You Play the Game – Application Bling

As school winds down for the summer, baseball season is ending soon for my son who is a sophomore in high school. For me, the season can’t end soon enough, yet four months ago we were all excitedly anticipating baseball season.This feeling has nothing to do wins and losses, or the actual game itself. It has to do with the same disgust that ends up spoiling what should be a positive experience and it’s happened in some form every year since our kids were six years old.We keep hanging on to hope that they are learning important life lessons that will help them through challenging times the rest of their lives.

Why would anyone follow a leader with no self-confidence? They wouldn’t.Do women struggle with self-confidence more than men? Yes.Then why are we surprised when there aren’t as many female leaders as male leaders in our businesses and society? We shouldn’t be.
