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 […]

TENSION: OUR SUMMER SERIES - THE YELLOW ROOM

I’ll remember this time with a fondness. With a smile and a sigh of how much I was growing, and how hard of a time I had doing it. If you asked me to name the most uphill year in my life thus far, the honest answer would be this past one. I’d call it […]

WHY I WANDERED DOWN THE (ROUGH) ROAD LESS TRAVELED - THE YELLOW ROOM

My husband and I love long road trips. We so enjoy the changing scenery and the ample time to talk or just listen to podcasts.

FINDING PURPOSE WHEN YOU FEEL UNPRODUCTIVE - THE YELLOW ROOM

Have you ever been the woman who wants to change the world? The woman with the heart, the guts, and the brain to get the job done, but who has been stopped short with one question: now what? I have. The time between deciding what we want to do and actually getting to do that kind […]

But as I got older I realized that there was a huge scope of professions, and before I […]

QUIETING FEAR TO LET YOUR VOICE SPEAK LOUD

I can remember standing in the bathroom mirror and practicing my resignation speech over, and over again. I went through the words that would speak my heart and intent, but clarify my courage to leave for my next level. Every time I finished it, expecting to feel at peace, I felt a knot of fear […]

HOW TO MAINTAIN MOMENTUM WHILE STARTING A BUSINESS - THE YELLOW ROOM

Some people in life will tell you that figuring out what you want to do is the hard part. Honestly, I can’t completely agree.

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 […]
