NOTE TO SELF

Written by

Dear Self,

I’ve got to hand it to you; you’ve come a long way. Why just in the last couple of weeks, you’ve gone from Hawaii to New York, LA to Chicago, LA to Georgia and Alabama and numerous places in between. You’ve time traveled, juggled networks and clients, created, collaborated, and connected people to projects across the US. And that doesn’t even begin to address the mental and emotional distances you’ve covered! Whew!

I’m in gratitude and awe right now. Seriously.

Written by

It’s a process to sit down to write my blog, review the recent events in my career and allow something to bubble up to the surface that I feel is worth sharing. Sometimes it’s really clear and an experience demands a voice, other times not, but today I am clearly compelled. I’m grateful and want to express it.

The Power of Letting Go……of Stuff!

Written by

Recently I was invited to a woman’s group initiated by a couple of producers I’ve worked with who I adore and admire. I was really touched to be asked to join this group of successful, intelligent, growth oriented woman so I ignored my initial resistance and fear of being the oldest, least attractive person with the least amount of credibility and I showed up for the gathering with an open mind and curiosity about what would unfold.

I learn a thing or two from each and every gig I do. Sometimes I learn the hard way through mistakes I make and being publicly humbled, but often times now its from what has been done right and the delightful feeling I get when the choreography of what ‘s been created is a magical dance number with a standing ovation at the end.

Teamwork makes the dreamwork

Written by

I first heard the expression “teamwork makes the dreamwork” on the set of NCIS from L.L. Cool J and if I hadn’t already had enough reasons to think he was a cool breeze, that clinched it! He didn’t make it up but he does get the credit for stating a truth that exists not only in television production but everywhere humans come together to combine their talents and resources for a common goal. It’s a versatile concept that applies to teams of 2 and teams of 2000.

How 10 minutes a day can change everything!

Written by

Its not news that happy, motivated people are immense assets in the companies they work for. And it isn’t just that they are more productive, creative, and successful, it’s that they are more fulfilled. So if someone told you that a 10 minute practice daily would help put you into the ranks of the peaceful and place you on the path to greater joy and satisfaction in the work you do, would you be curious? I know I was and they weren’t kidding.
