Inspiration

We all need information and tools to be Gutsy, and sometimes we need a little extra inspiration when we’re feeling frustrated and down. In this section, you’ll find sources of inspiration I have used over and over whenever I’ve been kind of lost or disillusioned. Plus some sources of inspiration that are just fun and funny.

I hope you’ll find some of these useful in your path to Gutsy! 

Why I Loved This Interview

Why I Loved This Interview

Over the course of my life, I’ve done a lot of interviews.  Most of them are related to work and I’m speaking about the accomplishments of my organization, industry trends, innovations, and new ways of doing things.

But only two or three times in my life have I been asked to talk about myself – my own path – and usually the interview is about my career path and falls into that “superwoman” genre (which is bothersome for me because I don’t want to be seen as a “superwoman” – I just want to be seen as “super!”).

So this interview in Authority Magazine is my favorite because it was when I was asked to talk not just about a career path but about life experiences and philosophies and the surprises and learnings I’ve had so far along the way.  It was so much fun for me and highlights topics that I think are really important for us as a society, which is why I wanted to share it with you!

On The Radio With Joe Piscopo, Part 2

On The Radio With Joe Piscopo, Part 2

I was pleased to be invited back to Joe Piscopo’s radio show in November.

One of my favorite parts is at the end when we are talking about my stylist, Nikki Woolfolk, because she’s awesome.  And I really believe what I said – that the key is to “Find someone to help you with the things you’re not good at instead of trying to be good at everything.”  We can’t be good at everything.  We shouldn’t even try.

Another favorite part is the story about seeing my book in the airport and sort of hovering around wondering what to do!  This is Shelly, who works at one of the stores and she bought a book the first time I saw it there!

And this is when I saw it the second time, which I was talking about in the radio show.  It will never not be exciting to see my book on a shelf. And I hope people buy it and read it!!!

Maya Angelou’s “New Directions”

In college, I had the good fortune to be able to see Maya Angelou speak.  I will be honest - I had no idea who she was when it happened - but I did end up eventually buying a copy of her book titled, “Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now.”   I think I bought the...
