Taxes in the Time of Trump…

I want today to be understated…not even using bold or italic print.  I am in the midst of preparing 2017 taxes…  In Politico this morning, Matt Latimer wrote a piece called “Trump is Winning”.  Not the most reassuring for those who really wish this four-year term would end.  The pundits are beginning to say that […]

Getting Healthier & Wealthier Every Day!

It is purely amazing how easy it is to become a happy hermit.  I have not left my home since Saturday because of this amazing illness, which is so very slowly improving, but improving it is.  I have appreciated great sleep, great sunshine, and great peace of mind all the while preventing my germs from being spread.  And […]

Being Thankful for the Enlightenment…

Thanksgiving was a great day for family, friends, and the local police department in Oberlin.  Thanksgiving evening the upper respiratory experience returned after abating for a few days.  The cough syrup experience resulted in being escorted the last several blocks home from Beachwood by the Oberlin Police Department.  It will take an act of God for me […]

I AM Personal Sustainability…

Sometimes, I scare myself!  And this is one of those times!  My birthday is in this season, and today, there are two birthdays of folks I love and respect for who they are totally–personally and professionally.  And, yes, I am going to name them.  It is a day of truth!  One is Joe Kraft, a […]

A long time ago when I lived in Vermilion, Ohio, a city by the Lake of Erie, I had a slate wallhanging created for me by a local artist of lake gulls with the words “Don’t Ask Me to Walk…When I have the urge to soar!” Four months ago, I moved to Oberlin, Ohio from […]

Happy Weekend, Yes, It Is!

It is the weekend!  Yes, it is!  Being happy, Yes, I am!  Butterflies are Flying, Yes, they are!  Food is local, Yes, it is!  Being Sustainable, Yes, I am!  I have worked my butt off for several weeks working on all parts of my business through The Empower Excellence Experience…transitional financial coaching, Professional Women’s Connection, […]

There Can be Joy in Doing Nothing!

This is a weekend of mindless activity which does bring joy… The last two months have been spent preparing to move to Oberlin, moving to Oberlin, and unpacking and getting back to my business in Oberlin!   It has also been filled with balance of friends and family with one-year old Kurt,Jr.’s birthday for family, Nicole […]
