In my experience as a professional Business and Lifestyle coach,
you can learn a lot by the books people read, tools they use...
AND what they geek out over!
I firmly know that there is genius in everyone…if we are patient enough and experienced to know what we’re looking for. Genius can last for a moment or extend past our lifetime if we’re lucky. Think of DaVinci, Van Gogh, Shakespeare, Cesare, Christ, Mohamed or Buddha. I find genius in children and in the aged. Our time on earth is limited, but our genius is not…if we play to our strengths and use them to help ourselves, our community and our nation. Learn more about me...
Books that Inspired Me
Ideas can come from anywhere…and for me they come while reading in a favorite coffee shop drinking a latte with oat milk or cold brew. These particular books have inspired me over the course of my life.
These are my “go to” reminders of genius in storytelling, dance, music & play
The Crazy Ones
Sesame Street & Jimmy Kimmel
Where do the mermaids stand?
The Hallelujah Chorus
Old Movie Stars Dance to Uptown funk
Who's on first?
Experience that have influenced me greatly
Vipassana is one of India’s oldest techniques of meditation, first taught 2,500 years ago. It is a practical method of self-awareness that allows one to face the tensions and problems of daily life in a calm and balanced way.
I don't know what Disney puts in the water, but while staying at The Walt Disney World Resort one can't help but lose themselves in the magic of the experience. The Grand Floridian was the the Hotel we stayed at with my last trip with my Grandmother...we created lasting family memories!
Guided Online Fasting Experience. A one-week transformational juice fasting retreat from home with an International Community. Something I NEVER thought I'd do...and now its on my yearly to do list.
This is Immersive Theater at its best. You and everyone in your group will be asked to wear the mask shown above. You'll be able to walk around multiple levels to follow the story. You may even be pulled aside from your group by one of the actors for your own private show. This is surely an evening that you'll be digesting for a while.
There is nothing better than sitting in a hot Finnish sauna sweating out the toxins, then going into the cold lake water. Your poor open and close so often you can't help but leave refreshed!
I LOVED my first trip trip to Sundance. What a great way to learn about the film business in a very non-LA kind of way. Celebrities mingle with regular folk and the Talk backs after the films are awesome. I highly recommend. Maybe I'll see you there.
Some of my favorite talks that have influenced my world view.
