Posted on Jun 27, 2017 in blog, Emotional, Intellectual, Megan McDonough, Physical, Relational, Spiritual

by Megan McDonough Coaches help people reach for their highest and best. And to do that well, coaches invest in their own highest and best journey, too. What does it take for a coach—or anyone for that matter—to be at the top of their game? What does it take to continually make choices that develop you as a person and as a professional? It’s important to ask that question, because humanity’s greatest gift is our ability to make choices...

The Power of “Yet”

Posted on Jun 22, 2017 in blog, Emotional, Inspiring Change, Intellectual, Lynda Wallace, Relational, Spiritual

by Lynda Wallace The things we say, whether out loud or to ourselves, have a profound effect not only on how we feel, but also on what we do.

No One’s Perfect

Posted on Jun 13, 2017 in blog, Emotional, Guest Bloggers, Intellectual, Relational, Spiritual

by Amy Alpert A couple of weeks ago, I spilled coffee on my computer and had to migrate my data to a new computer. At the exact same time, my website encountered some problems and I had to figure out how to recreate certain pages. Needless to say, I was just a bit freaked out by all of my technological bad luck. My sweet and patient (at least at that moment) 13-year-old son attempted to talk me off a ledge as he watched my stress spiral to the...

Money and Happiness

Posted on Jun 9, 2017 in blog, Inspiring Change, Intellectual, Lynda Wallace, Physical, Relational, Spiritual, Uncategorized

by Lynda Wallace A few years ago, I made one of the best and most important decisions of my life, choosing to leave my corporate executive position to create a new career as a Positive Psychology Coach. Now I get to spend every day doing work that I love and enjoying the lifestyle benefits of working for myself. Not coincidentally, many of my clients are also considering career changes, as are many of the students to whom I teach courses on how...
