Great customer service? It’s not always easy to find. My way of dealing with it? Voting with my dollars – keep going to places that provide excellent service and stop going to those that don’t. Situations where I am less tolerant? The doctors’ office. I had an appointment with a gynecologist today. One would think that receiving good customer service and having a warm and welcoming atmosphere would not be too much to ask in an...

Have you ever started a habit where you did well for the first week or two, even rewarded yourself for your hard work and yet, a week or two after that, were unable to keep going? The culprit? Your reward! Yes. That’s right. You may have unknowingly, sabotaged yourself! Fundamentals first. There are two types of motivations: extrinsic and intrinsic. When we do an activity to get an external reward or avoid an external punishment, we’re extrinsically motivated. On...

I have an ever-expanding toolbox of strategies and techniques designed to help you be more effective, be happier and live a meaningful and purpose-driven life. It’s something I like to call, Living your Awesome. My source? Coaches, mentors, conferences, books, my experience from coaching hundreds of people over the past few years, as well as my own life experiences. But there is also another, surprising source: my day-to-day interactions with people around me. As a coach that firmly...

  Research shows that we repeat forty percent of our behaviors everyday. So forty percent of what we do is driven by our habits. Change your habits and you can very well change your life! A habit is basically a learned pattern of behavior that is repeated so often that it becomes automatic. For those of you that saw my earlier post, you know that I’ve been reading Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before – a book that provides a number...

According to Gallup’s most recent State of the American Workplace report, an astonishing 70% of individuals do not like the work that they do. That is crazy! I love my job. No seriously. I absolutely LOVE my job. I get to interact with smart, fun and amazing individuals and help them discover their true potential and create the life of their dreams. This has not always been the case for me. In fact, it wasn’t too long ago...

Yesterday, I reconnected with my college roommate after 7 years. I’d been meaning to call her for months and routine and life kept getting in the way. We finally connected yesterday and I realized how ridiculous it was that so much time had passed. What’s surprising is that we were really close. She’s actually my cousin and was my best friend throughout college! We just moved to different places after graduation and ‘got busy with life’. So...

Ever feel like the days are just passing you by but you’re not really getting anything done? It’s not that you’re sitting around…you’re busy…but you’re busy doing stuff that doesn’t even matter. You’re tired of this. You want to live with intention. You want to live a life on purpose. My solution? Answering a series of questions. At the beginning of each day I ask myself: How are you feeling? What do you want? What actions can I take to...

Picture this, you make the decision to get in shape. You want to learn how to eat right and workout right so you can reach your goals. So what do you do? Look for an expert. After all, why reinvent the wheel? Surely, hiring a personal trainer and/or a nutrition coach is the way to go. The ‘expert’ has done it for countless clients and has the experience to know what works and...

    Ask anyone you know and the desire to be happy is at the core of what they really want. From my work over the years and my own experience, I know that one of the key factors for a happy life is having an atmosphere of growth – learning new things, forging new relationships and getting stronger and better at the things we value. Habits have an immense role in creating this atmosphere of growth because of their...

  Ask any great leader or accomplished individual about their success story and they’ll name a list of mentors, heroes and others that inspired them to be the best they could be. Well this past weekend, I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with one of the people that continues to be a source of inspiration for me. Shefali Khanna, who in addition to being my sister-in-law, is also the co-founder and chief merchandising officer of DAILYLOOK, a premium...
