Consider what makes your heart sing – what brings you joy or peace. When I was a child, I loved dancing. I was happiest when I danced – any kind of dancing would do. As I got older, I found happiness in so many other things – traveling and writing for example. I also found that there were some things I really liked in my work-life: planning, training, mentoring. I also really like solving problems and finding new ways for clients to succeed. I took these things that made me happy and found a way to use them in my [...]

Seed 02: Put pen to paper.

October 1st, 2016|0 Comments

Put pen to paper. I love the feeling of setting a goal and writing it down. For me, that act of putting pen to paper crystallizes my dream into a goal and makes it all the more real. I keep a journal with me at all times. People wonder what I am writing about. The truth is, they are random thoughts sometimes, and other times they are detailed plans. […]

Seed 03: Speak It & Bring It to Life – Speak as if it is

October 1st, 2016|0 Comments

Speak It & Bring It to Life – Speak as if it is. I recently met a new entrepreneur, and she introduced herself as an itty, bitty business owner working out of her basement with no customers. I quickly told her that this would be her elevator speech: “I am the owner of a successful venture, working out of my office, catering to my customer base.” Don’t reinforce negativity by speaking down on yourself; speak your successes into existence. […]

Seed 04: Inhale and exhale – determine who breathes life into it and who drains the energy out of it.

October 1st, 2016|0 Comments

Inhale and exhale – determine who breathes life into it and who drains the energy out of it. – It’s commonly said that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. If the people in your inner circle don’t believe in your dreams, soon enough, you won’t either. If they just agree with everything you say without working for growth, soon your own growth will cease as well. It’s all about finding the balance of people who are invested in you enough to give you valuable feedback that will help you excel. […]

Seed 05: Delve Into the Details

Delve into the details. – The devil is in the detail. You have to be willing to dig in and get dirty to make sure your dream will grow. You need the facts and figures so you can chart a successful path. […]

Seed 06: Plan Your Success

October 1st, 2016|0 Comments

Plan your success – It is so easy to jump in and get to work, but the magic is in the plan. Zig Ziglar said, “Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.” Plan your dream so that when the window of opportunity presents itself to you, you are ready to turn that window into a door. […]

Seed 07: Reevaluate your plan – it is never too late to modify your vision.

October 1st, 2016|0 Comments

Reevaluate your plan – it is never too late to modify your vision. Every day is a chance to learn and to adjust. I’m constantly getting new data that can cause detours and pivots in my plans. Do not continue on a path of destruction just because it is the path you started on. Reevaluate and make sure you are going to where you want to go. […]

5 reasons it’s never too early to start networking

July 18th, 2016|0 Comments

  I wish I had realized the importance of networking when I was in school. I don’t remember learning about building solid relationships. I remember a little bit of pre-algebra and world history, but that’s about it. I was also trying to figure out how to tease my hair to great heights. This was the eighties. Had I realized the importance of building relationships with people at an early age, I might have kept in better touch with old friends as well as with respected teachers, administrators, and coaches. I would love to know what they are up to now. [...]

My call to stop the comparison game

July 13th, 2016|0 Comments

Summer is here, and along with it comes the social media flood of accomplishments: the Facebook posts about service trips; the Instagram posts showcasing the first day at an internship and tweets about all the amazing adventures occurring. As someone who is constantly surrounded by high achievers, it seems like every time I get comfortable with who I am and what I’ve done, someone shows me how they’ve worked harder, and as a result, I’m back at square one.   The whole concept of comparison is one that I have grown very familiar with, and I know that I’m not the [...]

What is Envision, Lead, Grow?

May 16th, 2016|0 Comments

Welcome. I am thrilled you are here. Even though ARDX, the healthcare management consulting firm I created, just celebrated its ninth year, I feel as if I have been working toward business success my entire life. My goal now includes you - to empower a new generation of entrepreneurs. Nine years ago, in 2006, my vision for ARDX had three pillars. First, to provide thought leadership with excellence to impact the Nation's health care policy and processes for the vulnerable populations. At that time, Medicare was the niche market. Because of the excellence demonstrated with those initiatives, we were positioned [...]
