Three weeks ago, I ran my very first race, which is funny because I always told myself, ‘I am not runner.’
I had my reasons for putting myself in the “non-runner” category: I have exercised induced asthma, and I’ve had several attacks that landed me in the hospital; I have neuroma, a pinched nerve in my right toe; I’ve never been good at running, especially long distances; and I don’t really like it. And while all these reasons have some truth in it, it became a perfectly logical reason as to why I identified as “I am not a runner.” read more →

I normally don’t share testimonials, but I thought this story might inspire you.
I know what it’s like to feel stuck in your career and wondering, is it possible to make a change?
I talk to so many people that feel stuck in their career, but have limiting beliefs that block them, such as, “In order to make a career change, I will have to start over or take less money.” read more →
I struggled with romantic relationships most of my life. In high school, I had an over-protective brother who scared boys away, and the guys I liked in college never seemed to like me back—or vice versa. read more →
You may be a bit taken aback by this title. You may even be wondering, Why is an experienced life coach telling me that I can do this whole thing on my own? First off, to clarify, that is not what I’m saying. At all. As someone who has been life coaching NYC clients for years, I can confidently say that life coaches can be extremely valuable for a number of reasons.

Last month, I had a call with someone—let’s call her Leslie—who filled out the contact form on my website. She asked to meet on Skype, so I knew she wasn’t in the U.S. As soon as we jumped on the call, I learned that she was from Malaysia, somewhere I had never been, and she said she found me through my podcast with Bre, a woman who was feeling stuck in a job she didn’t like and ultimately became a makeup artist. This resonated with Leslie. read more →
