Blogging from the HRart
January 23, 2020
Here we are at the end of our little mini-blog series and I have to tell you that this week spending time with my family hearing them share about their 2019 Connected Canvas outcomes has meant more that I could ever express. And perhaps someday, I’ll be able to share that with you. But right now, I have one more canvas to share.Read More

My husband, Josh, experienced his first Vision Fest last year. He created a board that he felt good about, he believed that his Connected Canvas told the story of what he truly hoped to manifest in 2019. His board spent half of the year displayed by his desk in our office at home and then the second half of the year it hung on the wall in front of the treadmill.
Josh sat down with his Connected Canvas and shared with me that it truly did tell the story of 2019. He also shared that the Canvas provides hints of what is to possibly come in 2020.

Marie Forleo has been a member of my Mental Advisory Board since day one. Not sure what that is, no worries, that blog post is coming later this month. But I digress, this month Marie proposed a Decade Review to close out 2019 properly and be fully prepared to welcome 2020. This review facilitated a process that challenged me to determine the most significant outcomes for myself personally over the last decade. More importantly, I had to also explore why these outcomes were so significant.
I was a little overwhelmed initially at completing this task, knowing that the last ten years included my wedding day, the birth of two children, the birth of my business and some pretty huge educational and professional milestones – how would I ever narrow it down to three. But like most exercises in the personal development realm, the outcomes are never what is expected. Major life events don’t automatically transfer to the most significant and impactful for our growth. So what does make the list? Let’s take a look at mine.

This morning marked the official ending of yet another chapter in my life. This has been a current trend for me as I continue to navigate my path to my true purpose. I have found that my path requires letting go of things that no longer serve me, saying no to incredible opportunities that aren’t aligned, and closing a few doors so the universe is able to open new ones.
When it comes to my business it has always had only one guidepost, people. I took a leap of faith into entrepreneurship because of my desire to help people. Specifically, people in their workplaces – I’ve said it time and time again, I am an HR Practitioner at heart. It is at the core of all the work I do. When it comes to conversations regarding business, I want to discuss the people that are making the potential for that business possible (I also seem to have a slight bias toward P words, ever since I wrote my first book, From Heart to HRart). Nevertheless, the concept of helping people, or the subject of business and people, even HR is an entirely broad scope.
This October, the company that came to be as a result of my leap of faith is celebrating its fifth year and I can’t help but find myself in a place of reflection and deep-rooted gratitude. Gratitude for the people who have shown up on this journey and have served as guideposts that molded and evolved Leadership Arts Associates to what it is today.
I’d like to take a moment and recognize five significant guideposts…Read More

You may have seen the invite floating around social media for our 5-year Anniversary Halloween Bash. If not, check it out here. But with our spooky theme, I thought I would be the perfect time to reflect back on my time as an entrepreneur and share my top five entrepreneurial fears. Because if I’m being honest, being an entrepreneur has been my scariest job to date.Read More
