Brick & Mortar Visibility
Are you Gritty?
And I don't mean do you feel gritty. As in, yea, I could probably use a shower.
What I mean is...
Do you have the Grit?
Do you have the Teeth?
Do you have the desire so badly that you can't let it go? No matter how many times you get kicked down, rejected, un-answered or cut off?
I'd like to say we all have it.
Actually, I believe we do... but to what level of grit are we willing to take on. Perhaps your grit is a bit more delicate... for those soft woods that can't have too much abra…
My Top 3 Summer Reads... for Life Lessons
Longer days, grilling out, beach days, hanging out with friends & family.
And hopefully working hopefully just a little bit less.

And before I loose some of you.... yes, I realize some of you may not be moms.... I need to tell you,

As I sit here, "watching" BENJI with my two boys... while my middle one is showering, my second is chilling and my top one is doing her nails... I am thinking of the important imprint you all make in our "little world."
You see, you may not be a mama... but you play a nurturing, loving, supportive, encouraging, expectation fill…
The Logic of This is Overwhelming...
Do you ever have those moments where you're talking to a coach, or friend and you're like... "For Real? I seriously couldn't think of that on my own?"
Well, I know it's hard to believe but, I have them ALL. THE. TIME. :)
The thing is, I can tell anyone else how to fix their technique, or tweak their choreography, or run their studio better... but when it comes to my own, I can't quite see as clearly... Anyone else?
So here's a quick tip that I had hit over my head last week. Forgive me if yo…
