Life Coaching: It pays to keep cool during stressful situations
Posted: May 09, 2016

One of the most profound messages that I have learned from having an in house coach and communications expert (my wife, Elissa) is that if something does not feel right in my heart and gut, there might just be something to pay attention to.

Praise your child’s process, not the result
Updated: August 07, 2015 - 12:17 pm

I’ve heard it said that parenting is a lot like surfing. One moment, we can be in the midst of serene, calm waters, peacefully floating in the sea of harmony; the next, we are immersed in an enormous riptide, trying desperately to keep our heads above water. I’ve actually never been surfing, but this sounds about right. If you are a parent reading this, you know all too well the ebb and flow of the parenting journey.

Girl Scout wisdom and Lucy
Updated: June 26, 2015 - 2:09 pm

Recently while traveling, I was listening to a local AM radio station. In between the jazz tunes that were being shared, the radio announcer enjoyed sharing heartwarming stories or quick snippets that uplift the human spirit. The announcer had a deep and silky voice and his delivery was calming, almost as if I was sitting fireside with him for story time.

Being generous with ourselves
Updated: June 26, 2015 - 2:09 pm

I have always enjoyed this time of year. Even as a child growing up in Chicago, fall afternoons meant playing baseball with a sweatshirt on or running through piles of fallen leaves, some of which were raked quite neatly and I mischievously found joy in rummaging through those piles as well.

Daddy/daughter ritual turns into important life lessons
Updated: June 26, 2015 - 2:09 pm

About once a month my daughter and I have a very sweet daddy/daughter ritual that we have followed for the last six years. Typically on a lazy weekend afternoon, we drive over to the Ahwatukee Foothills Car Wash off Ray Road and when we get the car washed we grab a delicious, all natural fruit Popsicle. I tend to go with the piña colada flavor, especially in the hot Arizona summers when I like to imagine being in a tropical environment. My daughter tends to go with good-old natural strawberry and the little seeds are actually in the Popsicle. My daughter reminds me of this fact every time we go and I respond with enthusiasm and amazement as though this is new information.
