Living From Your Full Potential
Leaving San Francisco
The journey inward to discovering our full potential can be the most daring and rewarding and our best gift to those around us.
I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at Booking.com this week here in Amsterdam to discuss this very thing. When thinking of the value we bring to our teams, the focus needs to start within. When we are living and operating from our full potential- mind, body, and spirit- it not only benefits ourselves, but everyone around us.
Our Greatest Adventure
It’s taken me a long time to be able to write this. As crazy time flies, it’s been close to a year since I left San Francisco, what had been my home on and off for 7 years. Leaving there officially October 17, 2017 in retrospect was the best thing I ever did. (If you don’t want to read the background skip down to “ripping off the bandaid”).
Replenishing Mind. Body. Spirit- Joshua Tree
What is our greatest adventure? We are living it, right now, today, as we speak...it's called life.
My relationship with the word "adventure" has changed over the years. It's no longer just the act of being on an actual adventure, but a way of life. Adventure is of mind, body, and spirit elevated and expanded to new potentials within ourselves.
Solitude + Stillness
Energy: I'm definitely an extrovert and LOVE people and community BUT as much as I put out, more and more I need to replenish.
When Women Lead- My Truths
I can thank entrepreneurship for helping me appreciate quiet moments. As a founder, life can seem like a crazy roller coaster jumping off one ride onto the next. Constant calls, meetings, being on the road, often times lack of consistency or stability-whew it can wear you out. When you actually just get a moment with yourself, it's a little treasure.
She Ventures Takes New Life 2018
Speak Your Truth| As I shared at She Ventures Denver Thursday, in 2007 I came to some realizations that would change the direction my life would take the next decade.
Times Square. Altitude Seven. Milestone Makers. Nasdaq
And so a new adventure begins! She Ventures' new site is live and a big year lies ahead to celebrate and ignite adventure as a way of life for women around the world! Our event series and platform is a movement and vibrant testimony that women can be anything we want to be.
FUEL SMART GROWTH WITH GREAT CULTURE
So this happened Tuesday!!! @AltitudeSeven Live in Times Square! I along with my fellow #MilestoneMakers & San Francisco @49ers CEO Jed York got to ring the @nasdaq Closing Bell from the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center (@thecenter) in San Francisco!
THE SIMPLE QUESTION EVERY FOUNDER MUST ANSWER: WHAT'S MY STORY?
The journey of a founder is not a linear path by any means, and the juggling act is continuous. So what happens when all lights are green and funding is in and/or traction and revenue high and it’s time to grow and grow fast? One thing is for certain, don’t lose sight of your culture when approaching growth.
Our stories -- layered with meaning and inflection points that have brought us to what we are compelled to do today -- have great power. In our social interactions, stories create opportunities to relate to one another, loyalty, and memorability. The same is true in business, and knowing one's story is vital when setting off on building a startup.
