Professional success and boundaries: 3 things you have to know

I recently had a bizarre experience where a ‘potential’ client was bad-mouthing me on a post I’d made under my professional page, and then in the next breath, sent me a private DM asking for help. Now here we face a variety of dilemmas: financial, identity, and moral...

Difficult Divorce Day 2 … the illusion shatters

Are you ready to take your clothes off?

In his book "The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life." Sociologist Erving Goffman uses the metaphor of the stage to argue that much of our self-presentation is performative. We have the backstage and the frontstage. When working with professionals this is something...

Always follow the light

In February it was my birthday. I wrote this 2 days after turning 49. I pondered on what my near half century on the planet had taught me? 1. Authenticity is like a volcano In my younger days I tried to 'fit' in. In relationships. In career. In 'groups'. Try as I...
