043: The Power of The #MeToo Movement

December 14, 2017

If you've watched TV or followed social media lately, you must certainly be aware of the #MeToo Movement. This movement is an example of incredible social evolution for which I am thrilled. I am especially proud of the courageous women who have come forth and spoken their truth. Their bravery has made it possible for still others to find their voice to speak out against such reprehensible behavior and treatment of females in the workplace. If you are a woman who has been hurt by sexual assault and/or harassment, I am deeply sorry you experienced that and I stand in staunch support of you speaking out. Thank you for your courage. Sexual assault and harassment cannot be tolerated. It took one voice to start a movement for change. It takes all of our voices to make it stick. Thank you for listening.

037: Unplugged - My Guiding Values Revisited

October 20, 2017

I had a very special week last week. I got a chance to sit down in solitude and think about the values that I have established as guiding principles to live my life by. I wanted to share mine with you and challenge you to think about the values that are important to you, write them down, and commit to live by them. 

Otherwise, it's pretty easy to lose yourself in this world.
