Organized Chaos

By |2020-04-07T06:26:04-04:00April 6th, 2020|

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain." Something happens when I listen to new PR clients in an intake call. I love it when they speak stream-of-consciousness because even though I’m listening to their unique story, I'm also hearing what's universal about all humans. [...]

Whether you believe it or not, stuckness is there to help us wake up and frees us to live a life that we love.

Where You Live Is Important To Your Business!

I am very passionate and excited about where I live (Hint: I live in the most beautiful city in Europe....Budapest). And here's why I believe that your physical surrounding is mission critical to the success of your business. Often times we greatly underestimate how important our physical environment is to our well-being. Here's the [...]
