The Empower Excellence Experience is…

This has been long in coming, and it may still change.  But, this is a succinct presentation of what I do with my company Empower Excellence, LLC.  I know it will still need explanation, but I wanted to share it with everyone today because it represents my work towards Personal Sustainability…your comments and questions are […]

Meeting You Where You Are…in Life

Great thoughts come to me during meditation…remarkable thoughts, in fact.  As I prepare for a business expo next week which will cover The Empower Excellence Experience I was thinking way too hard when the Universe delivered to me, as it usually does, an exact thought that I needed to explore, and I did.  That thought […]

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 […]

Let’s Talk About the Selfish Basics!

No matter where you are on your path, make sure that the basics needed for a sustainable life are included in your plan.  Sleep is one of the greatest healers, and we many times carry with us the stigma from our parents about sleep issues.  I know as a child I was always told that […]

I Do Not Care About Living on the Fringe!

In a recent effort to stay focused on Personal Sustainability, self-esteem has been a major topic.  When you reach self confidence in this area, you are indeed a super power.  Yes, magic does happen.  Does it happen all of the time?  No!  Do people like and love you more?  No!   What does happen is […]

And then September began…

Nor is it an excuse… Yesterday was September 1, and it turned out to be a very productive day in a very different way…I am beginning an invitation-only program to fast track me in a selected area of The Empower Excellence Experience.  It came to me without any request on my part.  That was a […]

Why Did I Choose Pampered Chef?

And why did I choose to be Pampered Chef “healthy”?   Pampered Chef is all about food.  It is all about healthy food and learning to cook healthy food with quality cooking utensils and tools and serving pieces.  People of all ages will tell me that they do not cook; but they do have to eat. […]

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 […]

Sundays are Always a Little Brighter!

First Church of Oberlin is where I really became acquainted with the city of Oberlin in the early 2000’s… Now, on a Sunday, I do try to attend whenever possible.  I went to bed yesterday and awoke this morning with that intention, and it was all so different for me.  My meditation time this morning before […]

And Then It Was April…

April is a time when I start new things… In 1978, on April Fools’ Day, I conceived a son!  Yes! In April of 1984, I began an affair that lasted on and off until 2010!  No! I didn’t want to be a fool or a trailblazer or someone who marched to my own music, but […]
