Rejection Therapy: Week 1

When I was 23, I believed I could do anything. I moved to middle-of-nowhere China right after college, and all seemed possible. Even moving to a country where I didn't speak the language, was the only white girl in town, and had very little understanding of Chinese culture didn't seem to phase me much. I was nervous, but more so,…

The Beauty of Illiteracy

**This is a repost from a blog I started while living in China** I can read a decent amount of Chinese characters---belly dancing is not one of them. So, when I decided to get back on the yoga wagon at my local Chinese studio, I attempted to read and select a class from the schedule card written all in Chinese…

Redefining Experience: Meet Avital Ungar

Full of energy and beaming, she walked into the room with the perfect mix of confidence, elegance, and down-to-earth charm.

Why don’t you quit your job?

I've been talking a lot about 6 Months to Live with several new people lately, and it's always interesting to hear people's comments and questions.  One person sarcastically asked, "Well, if you only had 6 months to live, why are you still working?"  I read him a quote from my Kickstarter Project: "Most of us have no idea when our…

“Angry Girl Inhales Waffle Cone”

Today's headline might have read something like this in my world.  It was a rough day.  After biking home, I took a swift walk to the park and unloaded my frustrations.  My mom patiently listened on the phone, as I told her about everything going on in my world and then she said "I love you" and goodnight. On the…

Whole People. Whole Lives.

I recently took a risk. I added business contacts to my Facebook page and uploaded my personal blog on LinkedIn.   I've always maintained a clear line between my professional life and my personal life.   This seemingly simple switch came from a recent conversation I had about modern global leadership. I will be the first to admit I have siloed my…

Playdates

What was your favorite part about childhood?  Mud pies?  Make believe?  Dressing up?  Climbing trees?  Running for no reason?  Capture the flag?  Sidewalk chalk?  Forts?  All these activities share something in common: unbridled freedom, creativity, and fun! Tutu Power! If I had one phrase to capture my early childhood it would be: "Do you want to come out and play?"…
