“If I was awake, I should be doing,” Erika Biddix said on last week’s Joyosity™ podcast. “I made it through college on like four hours of sleep a night, and so then I brought that do do do into my corporate life.” Can you relate? Most leaders have guilt around rest. The “I’ll sleep when […]

“Did you finish your work?”  Plopping on my friend’s soft grey couch, I told the group, “Ugh. Not yet. I have all the action steps, the events, and the rest, but I’m struggling with the opening.” “What’s the leadership topic you’re writing about?” As I began to describe simplicity, I giggled.

“We didn’t think you’d notice the difference,” the guys said when they came back from the store as they put the Schnucks-brand tonic water on the granite countertop. “It’s just like Fever Tree, isn’t it?” Oh, no, gentlemen. No, it is not. Yet, we were all too tired from the week to go back out […]

“Absolutely not. I am not about power,” I vehemently disagreed with my executive coach. Sitting at a busy Starbucks, I could not understand why we were even talking about power. This wise coach picked up her blonde brew and kindly said, “Jenn, I need you to listen. Everything has a power. Every person holds power. […]

I decided on a random Tuesday in January of 2022 that it’s never too late to be the most active participant in my life. I started walking out the front door every day for a short walk. I added time and activities. In May of 2022, I started a streak of moving at least 30 […]

I stopped counting at 4 hours trying to solve an issue with a flight change. Messaging with the airline, trying to fix the problem online, and finally on hold on the phone. Friend, I am currently listening to the hold music with interruptions from the voice that says, “You can conveniently solve this problem at […]
