List, Action, Track, Achieve: How My Daily List Helped Me Earn a Ph.D. at 40

I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Colorado Boulder at the wise, wonderful age of 40!

The backstory…

During my second year of college, at age 20, I had an unexpected and life transforming turning point. Surprise--you’re pregnant! This angelic gift—LOVE YOU GOOSIE—precipitated my decision to drop out, get married and forge the family path.

My then husband and I had two more magnificent monkeys and I worked from home while raising a family. Once our youngest was old enough to enter preschool, I decided it was time finish what I had started all those years ago—the completion of my B.A. So, I returned to college.

Feeling like an alien on a campus surrounded by twenty year old “kids,” I took courses to earn my B.A. in psychology and was then accepted into graduate school.

I could not have predicted that on this journey, I would get divorced from my fifteen year marriage and become a...

Lose the Booze Challenge: Transform Yourself With a Drinking Time Out

When my daughter was accepted into Colorado College, I was elated and simultaneously bewildered wondering, how in the world am I going to help contribute to her tuition?

At the time, I was a single-mama supporting the family on a slim graduate student budget. For two weeks, I laid in bed night after night worrying about how to come up with extra money. She was working on solutions herself and decided to try fundraising through GoFundMe and asked me to post her story on my Facebook account. I was struggling with how to ask my friends for money and felt the need to make sure they knew I was doing my part and not just asking for a handout.

On New Year’s Eve of 2017, a dazzling idea came to me: I’ll quit drinking, reallocate the money to my daughter’s college tuition, and ask my Facebook friends to sacrifice only one night our of drinking and gift the money to my daughter’s GoFundMe account instead! I hastily posted my declaration to Facebook, early in the...

The Myth of an Easy Relationship

habits relationships May 31, 2018

Growing up I loved to watch romance movies. Grease was one of my all-time favorites and Danny became my number one daydream husband when I played house with my friends. Many other movie couples intrigued and fascinated me and I became infatuated with the idea of fairy-tale-romantic-love. The couples I watched were glamorous, blissfully in-love, and could always overcome their relationship problems quickly. Who wouldn’t want this kind of fairy tale relationship?

I didn’t know it at the time, but these movie star couples were shaping my beliefs about romantic relationships and contributing to the construction of my love blueprint. As a sociologist, educator, and coach, I am interested in examining the ways in which institutions (i.e. the media, families, schools) intersect with and shape individual realities (here: intimate relationships).  This examination provides insight and understanding about problematic love and relationship beliefs that may be...

The Key Secret to Getting RICH

Everyone wants to be rich.

Well maybe not everyone, but most people would agree that they want to have more money in the bank.

It’s interesting that the same people that say they want to be rich do nothing to increase their wealth. The majority of people wish, dream, and hope that someday they’ll make it big, but they never do.


People think that wealth just happens. But this is not the case.

Well, it could be the case if you are “born into money.” Then it could “happen” to you but if you were never taught how to manage the money you inherited chances are it won’t last. Have you ever known a trust-funder who had millions of dollars and ended up dead broke? I know more than one.

To build a solid financial foundation that stands the test of time, just like any other skill, it takes devoted and persistent effort.

Think of any skill you feel good at such as parenting, running, sex (yes this can be a skill that you believe you are good...

Your WHY Is Your Inspirational Fire

goals habits purpose values May 31, 2018

“When you know your why, you can endure any how.” 
-Viktor Frankl in Man’s Search for Meaning (1946)-

 This is one of my all-time favorite quotes. It is proclaimed by many growth and development powerhouses, and was originally articulated by Friedrich Nietzsche who stated, “He who has a Why to live for can bear almost any How.” Frankl drew upon Nietzsche’s words to survive the Nazi internment camps during the holocaust. He endured torturous trauma by fixing his mindset on his unique why. If you haven’t read his book, DO IT! It is a book every person must read that will leave you deeply inspired.

What is a “why?”

It’s your hope-filled-growth-mindset. It’s your enthusiastic launching pad. It’s your key to creating a connected relationship. It’s a company’s primary purpose and mission statement. It’s your financial planning and goldmining tool. It’s how to have a balanced mind and...

Change Your Life One Step at a Time

On my trail run this morning I had a fond memory of my one of my best friends asking me to do a marathon with her. I thought, why not?

During high school, I was a competitive swimmer so I had confidence in my athletic abilities and it was perfect timing because my third and last child was one month old and I had gained 36 pounds during my pregnancy. I was feeling beyond ready to get back in shape and be strong and slim again.

We decided to go out for a short one-mile run around a local lake to see what it felt like. I vividly remember about half a mile in thinking, HOLY SHIT running is hard! When I got home my back ached, my legs were sore, and my mind was reeling. How in the world do people run 26.2 miles? Why would they want to? There’s no way I will ever be able to do it! But I stretched and I went out to run again a few days later. Over about a year, I lost the baby weight and I fell in love with running.

Here I am 12 years after that first one-mile run with several...
