DRAINED BY THE NEWS? WHY SETTING HEALTHY BOUNDARIES ACTUALLY FUELS CHANGE - THE YELLOW ROOM

I read The Handmaid’s Tale in college, so I knew what to expect when I turned the TV on to the new hit series. But as I snuggled into my couch to watch the dystopian future story, I felt an eerie familiarity wash over me. This world in which women were systematically stripped of their […]

UNLEASHING YOUR CHILDHOOD COURAGE TO BE YOUR BOLDEST SELF - THE YELLOW ROOM

Do you remember that feeling of getting lost in something – really getting lost in something the way you used to as a child?

UTILIZING YOUR TALENTS AND CREATIVITY TO GIVE BACK

You know you are meant for something bigger. You know that with your passion, empathy, and talents you can make a difference in the world around you. But where do you start? How do you identify what you should be focusing your energy on? I have often heard people say that they just don’t have […]

It took me two years and almost giving up my own company to finally recognize the deeper purpose behind my work. Before then, I was only sure of two things I wanted: to help businesses give back by partnering with charities, and to assist others in creating meaning in their lives. But, it was never clear […]
