Where Inflation Meets Business

The world is yet again being squeezed. Now, it’s inflation and the increase of prices everywhere you turn. Today I’m talking about where inflation meets business, why it matters, and Propel’s stance on the situation. Because history is only repeating itself and this isn’t permanent… Surely we’re in for an interesting summer. Gas prices are…

Boss Baby?

A client recently suggested I put a headset on my belly while holding client meetings. His personal experience is that both of his boys rule the roost and are bosses of the house, so surely they assumed the boss baby role from mom and dad pre-birth and post.

The Practice of Creating Space

The practice of creating space

A dear friend of mine recently sent out New Year’s greeting cards along with a letter recounting 2021 as she experienced it.

For the Love of a Parent

These two😍!! Each time I leave my parent’s home in Central Oregon I have a moment. Driving down to the main highway I want to turn around and hug them again. Every. Time. Because as I’ve gotten older (and wiser) I realize I am who I am because of them and life is too short…

Listening Differently

Listening to our body and giving it what it needs is so important. I have always been a morning person enjoying coffee and breakfast and bird chirps while the sun rises. Then 2020 hit and I had to start listening differently. Now it’s become easier to hear and I’ve created habits that are personally better…
