I am fortunate enough to speak to, on average, 25 bright, gorgeous, spirited clients a week.  The majority of these clients are woman–close to 90%– and they are exquisite. She is usually good at what she does and wants to be great or stuck in some area of her life and wants to get unstuck. […]

Monday Motivation: “Let whatever you get done today be enough.”

whatever_you_can_get_done

Happy Monday you spirited soul, you! A few weeks ago I was nestled at my desk with a giant cup of coffee, a bun on my head and one determined attitude. I had a “To-Do” list three pages long and was resolute on not moving until I whipped through it all like a boss babe […]

Funny things are happening to my face (+ the only constant)

IMG_1555

Hi sweet souls, I will be 39 years old this coming year and since I hit my late 30s (nearly 40s!–oh my!) there have been many physical changes—most notably my face. My hope-driven efforts to defy gravity and counteract the undeniable and visible etches of time on my body are just that–hopeful. The crows feet […]

Do you need a friend detox?

friend detox

A few months ago, I met an old friend for lunch. We’ve been friends F-O-R-E-V-E-R. But something funny happened over our sushi. She rolled her eyes when I told her about the ebook I’m writing.

You are your own best friend. You are in very capable hands.

You are your own best friend. You're in very capable hands.

A few weeks ago, I shared a few Notes to My Younger Self, sharing things that I really, really wish sweet, young Danielle would have known.

Why you should get angry; Lean in to be Liberated

Why you should get angry; Lean in to be Liberated

A friend recently did something that made me truly question their character. Well, to be honest, they did a few somethings that made me raise an eyebrow but this was the very last straw and I found myself feeling pissed. Like, flames-coming-out-of-my-ears angry. I know what you’re thinking. I spend a lot of time writing […]

Normal is boring

Maya Angelou Quote

We all have ideas of what ‘normal’ looks like. Jeans and a button up and tasteful jewelry. Job in an office. Saying This Thing at That Time. Reacting This Way to That Event. And when we don’t think we’re normal – When we want to wear shredded jeans and an old concert t-shirt When we […]

poe

Here are some things I’ve done that have offended people: a) voiced my political opinions b) taken a few fries off their plate c) used the wrong pronoun d) worn white jeans and sequins when I ‘should’ have been wearing a dark, subtle suit If you’re alive, breathing, with blood pulsing through your veins, you’ve […]
