Welcome to my website. I love to think and write. I mainly write about mental training, teamwork, learning, and leadership. My number one goal in life is to help my two amazing daughters grow up to be amazing women. This website is a library of the lessons I want them to learn. If these lessons are good enough for my daughters, I hope you can benefit from them too.
Like many bloggers out there, I have had my struggles. The older articles on here are from a time when I called my writing “Raising Strong Girls”. I left these up because they are still great lessons to see.
I changed because I found many of my writings were to many more people than just the parents of girls. One of my favorite podcasts is the Tim Ferriss Show. Tim says the question “What if I did the opposite for 48 hours?” changed his life.
When I read this question, I was stopped in my tracks. I have always spent a major amount of time observing average actions and asking how I could do it differently to be better than average. For the first time, I heard someone articulate the question I have been missing.
I am on a mission to identify average actions and to help you be different by doing the opposite.
