5 Things She Can’t Live Without

Google Calendar: My most valuable asset is my time. And, of course, everyone wants a piece of it. My message to my team, colleagues, customers and even my family…”if it’s not on the calendar it doesn’t happen!”

Notebook: I have 20 years worth of notes from my “every day”. Meetings, people I talked to or met, places I traveled, decisions made and maybe just what I was thinking on that day. I still like the feel of pen and paper. Things stay in my head better that way and I truly feel lost without it.

Vacations: There are decisions made minute to minute about how you’ll spend your time. There is no such thing as a work life balance. We are ON 24/7. So, disconnected family vacations are vital to renewing my mind and spirit to be a better leader, wife, mother, daughter, friend.

Celery Juice: Stay with me here. This magic elixir has physically changed me. I process food better, hurt less, make my doctor happy, stay hydrated and have my cholesterol in check! At least 16 oz every morning…it does a body good. God put everything we need to heal in the produce section!.

Staying Active: Moving my body has to happen and frankly, it’s what God made it to do. Running, walking, body weight workouts, cycling, Hap Ki Do (I’m a black belt along with my eldest daughter), hiking. Benefits: Physical strength, mental clarity and emotional release. Keep moving!
