#MidlifeManifestSistermind #TheRewiredRetiredLife


New Year/New Life (2-minute Read)

Hello Beautiful!

Get still and envision how amazing your life would be six months from now if you quit dreaming about it and wishing for it, and began creating it. Can you see it? Great! Now, do it.


My vision: To help women who can either see the light at the end of their career tunnel and want to proactively prep for a retired life on their terms OR are in retirement and need a serious reset. You need clarity, a plan, and accountability…and let’s throw in some fun too!

This is my 2019 focus. Anybody not down for that, unsubscribe. I turn 60 in August and part of my plan for an EPIC year of celebrating is graduating 16 women from the Midlife Manifest Sistermind and taking them to Portugal with me in September.

Midlife Manifest Fifties Wisdom Week 14: Ah-mazing Can Be Your Normal Too!

Hello Beautiful!

In my quest to share what I’ve learned during these nine years of fifties, I’m realizing that I use the word ‘amazing’ frequently. I’m blessedly in a continuous loop of experiences that are worthy of that term.

a·maz·ing, adjective: causing great surprise or sudden wonder.

As I’ve stated before, turning 50 was about arriving at a destination that would put me on a ‘rest of my life’ easy street. NOPE!

Instead, expecting my fifties to be amazing me led me on a journey of  choices and decisions that manifested that reality…the best kind of self-fulfilling prophecy. 

Not magic. Not luck. Choices. I’m ALL IN invested in living an Ah-mazing life! What does this investment mindset manifest?

Letting ShXt Go!: Nothing can come in to a blocked, clogged space. I continuously purge what no longer serves me from my physical and head spaces to stay aware and open to receiving what does.

Laughter: Healthy laughter is a proven life extender. Most of my laughter comes not from comedians, but from small and big experience moments with people I love…deep belly-aching laughter. 

Love: My faith in God and Christ, Myself, My man, my family, my friends, my work…I have no obligated relationships. Blood doesn’t give you permission to hijack my life. I invest the time to keep my relationships deep and strong and the dollars to keep my business successful and highly impactful (I hire coaches too!).

Live: Living well for me encompasses consistently investing in above and in my physical health. Regular checkups and a ‘keep this body moving’ commitment. A heart condition, mini-stroke, torn meniscus in both knees, ankle swelling, and fibromyalgia are not excuses for me to cave to inertia. They’re reasons for me to eat and move for life! And because I know and own who I am, I invest in accountability by hiring a personal trainer and taking the (dance, barre, yoga,etc.) classes.

Legacy: The work I do changes lives…for the better. I choose to own and use my gifts for coaching and teaching to show women how to leverage and maximize their gifts for a life of freedom, passion, and higher level contribution. I want my nieces to see the full possibility of their lives through the way I live mine. And though my circle may be relatively small in this big ole world, I want my footprint to be large in it!

Yes, my life is Ah-mazing because I purpose it to be.

You can do the same. Check your investment mindset. Invest in your Ah-mazing.

Midlife Manifest Fifties Wisdom Week 13: Becoming

I was blessed to be in the audience for (my forever) First Lady Michelle Obama’s  Brooklyn stop on her Becoming book tour. If you admire her, I don’t have to tell you how incredibly amazing she is in all aspects of womanhood and as a human being. If you don’t then we probably have very little in common.

My biggest takeaways from her talk and her book:

  • Yes! I Am Becoming…for as long as I choose to be. There’s no age limit on growth, change, and manifesting what I want.
  • I define me. I don’t live under the weight of other people’s limitations.
  • A requirement of living my best life is having ride-or-die girlfriends.

Her message is very validating for the way I CHOOSE to live my life. If part or all of above is aspirational for you, then you may need a life coach. I say ‘may’ because coaching…at least MY coaching…is for women Ready to Act on their aspirations. 

Through everything challenge, road block, and underestimation…

She persisted.

So do I. So can you.

It’s a decision.

Get Your Life.

Midlife Manifest Fifties Wisdom Week 12: The Upside of Quitting

Hello Beautiful!

I’m on a year-long celebratory trek to 60 and sharing the fifties wisdom I’ve gained. This week marks the sixth anniversary of ditching my golden corporate handcuffs and manifesting an amazing life that at the time, I couldn’t fully envision. I only knew there was more for me to do and be and I had to push through fear of the unknown to claim it.

I have not one millisecond of regret.

It’s been a revelatory six years! Shedding the layers of years of conformity to a boxed way of living that became harder and harder to maintain wasn’t easy. It was necessary. Life-saving and life-affirming. I now walk in my purpose and passion of helping women live in theirs.

It’s true: where’s there’s a will and commitment, there’s a way.

My biggest lesson: Stop trying to figure out stuff alone. There’s no glory in unnecessary grind. Let THAT shxt go! Now, I honestly assess my gap and my ability to close it.  If my closing it isn’t my lane or costs me too much time, I hire the best person to help me close it. It saves stress and time and NOTHING is more valuable to me than my time except my faith.

To note my ‘reclaim my life’ anniversary, I’m re-sharing my first blog, The Upside of Quitting. Click here to read it.

We’re in the accumulation season. Enjoy! And prioritize. Who, What, and Where do you want to be this time next year? Is shopping or shifting your higher priority? Just a little post-Thanksgiving food for thought.

Get Your Life.

Midlife Manifest Fifties Wisdom Week 11: Gas & Gratitude

Hello Beautiful!

Have you ever gotten lost…totally discombobulated in your own city? It happened to me recently on my way home from a funeral. WiFi service was spotty, my GPS was in and out, and my plan to re-track my route by memory soon went awry. A turn down the wrong side of a street, a shut down road, and a stalled train had me feeling like I was in a maze I’d never exit. Eventually, I figured it out and made it home, but the oddest part of that experience was my GPS taking me to a Chevron gas station in the midst of that krazy. I have no idea how Chevron was entered because I typed a restaurant name (Taste of Thailand) which couldn’t have auto-corrected to ‘Chevron’??

But since I’m huge believer in messaging, I wasn’t ignoring this one.

Fully stepping into your purpose is almost indescribably wonderful! And enlightening. Pouring 30+ years of knowledge, creativity, and experience into my signature sistermind has been a dream-come-true. I talk to so many midlife women who after years of being a high achiever…wearing the mask to earn the great retirement package or savings account, are clueless about passion. They don’t know who they are, let alone, what they want. I remember working hard as hell on things I didn’t care much about and let me tell you, working hard doing what represents your authentic self is soooo much betta! A few things I’ve learned:

  • There are all kinds of ways to be lost. I work with women who feel lost in who they are and who they want to be. I was one of those women until I learned the power in being fully connected to your inner GPS then following it and that’s why helping women learn the same is my fuel.
  • There’s honoring what fuels you and needing fuel to continue. I took my unexpected arrival at a Chevron as a validation for my path AND a reminder that even when you’re doing what you love, you need to refuel. I had been burning both ends the past few weeks.
  • When I was growing up, gas stations were places in the community that you could stop for directions. Whatever your big dream or passion, there’s a community out there to prevent stalls and detours. Invest in the help you need. It’s so worth the time (and headaches) you save.

This week we celebrate Thanksgiving in America. EVERYday, there are reasons to be GRATEFUL. I appreciate each and every one of you who follow me, take your precious time to read my blogs and posts, and invest in yourself through my services. Thank you!!

My biggest hope for you is that you take some self-reflection time before the end of the year to Let Your ShXT Go, decide what kind of life you want to be living, then do whatever it takes to…

Get. That. Life.


P.S. I saw on NBC Nightly News that the hottest gift trend is giving experiences not stuff. “Researchers find in the long run, these gifts make us happier than gifts you can wrap.” Yessss!! And the top gift to give is travel. Helloooo! How Right On Time Am I? The Midlife Manifest Sistermind  is the experience of a lifetime that changes your life for the rest of your life AND we’re celebrating your transformation in Portugal!! BEST. GIFT. EVVA. Treat Your Self! See details here and get yourself on my calendar to talk about FINALLY getting the life change you’ve been craving.

Midlife Manifest Fifties Wisdom Week 10: Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves!

Hello Beautiful!

When was the last time you…

preserved your one last good nerve and said no to, “Will you _____?” and Yes to “I want to_____?”…

enjoyed a guilt-free night out without worrying who’s world would crash if they couldn’t get you?…

spent full days (not just once a year) focused on only one agenda: Yours…

got so caught up in doing something you feel passionate about that you lost track of time?…

stopped beating yourself up about ‘failed’ resolutions and instead simply assessed and course-corrected…

stepped out on faith into ‘the thing’ that won’t leave your spirit be?…

gifted yourself the bucket list experience that you’ll talk about for the rest of your life?…

felt good in your body because you finally learned what loving yourself to health looks like for you?

This is not pie in the sky. It’s the life that’s waiting on you.

“We don’t wait for the future to come to us. We give birth to the future.” ― Alain Dagba

I’m returning home from a weekend in the company of women who are intentional, committed, action takers who live life on their terms. It reminded me how my life changed exponentially for the better when I learned to become discerning, vulnerable and trusting in connecting to women who are about lifting themselves and bringing other women with them.

I made it through a successful but mentally, emotionally, and physically taxing corporate career because of my faith in God and my wisdom in connecting to fantabulous women. Women who have experienced every struggle, drama, and trauma you can think of, yet keep pressing on to live powerfully free and fabulous. Sisterhood time is my favorite oxygen mask (and why a retreat is included in the Midlife Manifest Sistermind).

If you’re not living in this lane and want to, there’s only one reason you’re not:

You’re interested but not committed. A lurker around what could be, not a participator. There’s no excuse you can give that I couldn’t give right back to you with a client’s (or my) similar experience who chose to use the obstacle as fuel to radically transform their life instead of remaining stagnant. Your sisters are waiting on you.

It’s a decision.


Time is running out to join the Midlife Manifest Sistermind! If you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, THIS is your answer to finally living that life you’ve been craving. We start Tuesday, December 4th. Click here for details and to schedule time to talk with me about creating your transformation

Midlife Manifest Fifties Wisdom Week 9: Hope Ain’t Change

Hello Beautiful!

Earlier this year, a client in my Let That ShXt Go! program, set a goal to run the New York Marathon. She wasn’t sure if she could get back in shape and stick to the prep. What she came to realize through doing the coaching work is that while it would be hard, the only reason it couldn’t happen would be because of the woman she saw in the mirror saying no to herself…to her dream. And where is she today? Running that marathon!! YASSSSS!!

Part of my story is celebrating turning fifty for eighteen months. Yes. I. Did. And in grand style! I’d set fifty as my ‘have it all together or it’s over’ marker. Wrong! It was the beginning of my coming into own, not the end. It’s been nine years of shedding shxt and learning to walk FULLY and FABULOUSLY in my Purpose and Passion.

“You got big dreams. You want fame. Well, fame costs. And right here’s where you start payin’!” (Lydia in Fame)

I love this line from the classic movie and not because I want fame, but because it speaks to being ALL in on your own behalf. And because…

  • helping women manifest their dreams is my dream come true…
  • I know you’ve been paying the cost and now it’s your time to reap…
  • Yes it’s work, but you’re not afraid of work, you’re afraid of change.

From the huge response, last week’s Let That ShXt Go, Reclaim Your Life and Thrive Challenge touched your last good nerve. Smart women are saying ENOUGH! to suppressing their shxt and are getting on my calendar to talk about joining The Midlife Sistermind to address it …once and for all. Six months of ‘reclaim your life and live it’ coaching PLUS your transformation celebration in Portugal! See details here

(the gorgeous floating umbrellas in Portugal)

What I hoped for my fifties turned out very differently than my expectation. Instead of a destination, it’s become this marvelous journey of growth and unforgettable experiences, and bringing other women along with me has been epic. Absolutely ‘worth the work’ change! So, whether it’s a marathon, a passion project, travel…starting whatever your new thing is, stop hoping for your change and get about living it!


Can’t wait to hear from you!
