The other day I was driving down the highway with my daughter and we passed a nice car with personalized plates. I don’t know what it is about personalized plates, but I always love to guess what they say. Some of the license plates are really creative! As we were coming up on this car I could tell it was a personalized plate (all of ours are a combination of letters and numbers and this was all letters) Once we…

Submodalities in communication

How your preferred submodality impacts communication

By | Applying NLP Now, NLP Weekly Tip, Relationships, Stories and Metaphors

One of the most valuable lessons I learned from my mom and step-dad – everyone processes at different speeds. You see, my mom was a very quick thinker with a wicked sense of humor. My step-dad, brilliant in his own right, was a much slower thinking, processing everything before responding.

About 10 years ago my then 9 year old daughter started a yoga business.  She wanted to help kids learn yoga as a tool for dealing with their emotions and struggles in a healthy way. She also felt she could help kids learn a healthy habit without telling them that it would be healthy. A few years later she wrote a book that hit the bestseller lists on Amazon within 48 hours.

Are you enjoying the season? Recently I’ve seen a lot of posts on social media reminding people that the seasons don’t change until September 22.
