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. His recommendation is from the position that…

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. As I read the first paragraph, I paused, reread it again multiple times, and then proceeded to read the whole letter. Today, with her permission, I’d like to share what she wrote and…

Looking For Margin…

I know it’s early in the year, but it’s already been stacked and I’m actively looking for margin to bake into my workloads and days. Can I just skip the meetings and computers and technology today? And the building and strategy and organizing and project management and brain use? Some days, no matter how much…

Super Bowl Ads Just Aren't What They Used to Be

Super Bowl Ads Just Aren’t What They Used to Be (but these commercials made my 2022 list)

For almost the last 30 years my only interest in the Super Bowl is when my team (Go Hawks!) plays, and for the commercials. Since the 90’s I’ve watched the commercials and picked them apart, dissecting why they worked (or didn’t) and how brilliant they were. But over the last decade or more I’ve come…

It's A Girl! My Forever Galentine

It’s A Girl! My Forever Galentine

Women have officially adopted the day before Valentine’s Day to get some girl-time in. For me, Galentine’s Day has, in the past, seemed like a great excuse to grab a glass of wine or a bite to eat with a girlfriend. But I have a new, forever Galentine in my life, and she arrives in…

Linking Arms with Visionary Entrepreneurs

Linking Arms With Visionary Entrepreneurs

Long strategy sessions energize me, especially when they’re held offsite at a gorgeous country location, with sunshine pouring in and a great business is being born. But it’s the linking arms with visionary entrepreneurs that truly makes my work exciting and fulfilling… All-day or even half-day client meetings happen enough that I have a checklist…

Surprising Beauty

What a sweet way for my forever love to arrive home. With “just because” roses that he couldn’t resist because of their firey and surprising beauty that resemble a vibrant and enduring flame. We’ve been together for 17 years and married for almost that long, but the last 9 have been the most rewarding, most…

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…

Taking 2022 By The Horns

Out of the woodwork and just like clockwork, all of Propel’s “quiet holiday” clients have re-emerged this week ready to take 2022 by the horns. Everyone seems to be motivated to hit the ground running, which makes me wonder what the year will bring… As I’ve been catching-up with each of client and team member…

Keep Your Fork!

None of us ever know what lies ahead for us, our loved ones, our business, work, communities, or the world, that’s true. But one thing we can trust is there is more to life, more of life, more laughter, lessons, love, and challenges. There is more today and in the future. So, when the current…

‘Tis the Season of Cozy

Maybe for you it is playing games with family, curling up with an oversized sweater and a good book, or sipping a hot beverage after a day on the slopes with friends. No matter what your idea of winter comfort includes, make sure your season of cozy is living up to your own hype. For…

I salute you, Entrepreneur!

Entrepreneurs!! You deserve more credit than you receive – guaranteed. You work all day, many nights, when you’re sick, and even when you want to play. When the world is off vacationing you’re still thinking, scheming, planning, building. I salute you! You deserve a break, some self-care, time to recharge and reset. Over the years…

Tagged: The PROPELLER

The Propel branding process was one of the most fun I’ve had creating something. When the word and name propel came to the surface and passed all the tests I didn’t know how many people would call me The Propeller for years to come… After a decade, in 2019, I finally went for it and…

Support Local this Small Business Saturday (& all season!)

If you haven’t noticed, there are pipeline delays this year. Major retailers are feeling the squeeze as shelves are less than fully stocked due to detained shipments and shortages in production. That’s why this year is the perfect year to seek out community businesses and artisans who aren’t relying on containers to arrive from overseas….

A Veteran’s Day Salute To My Soldier

A Veteran’s Day Salute To My Soldier

Thank you doesn’t begin to cover it. To all who have served, and are still out there defending our country – we wouldn’t be free without your sacrifice. This is my soldier about 20 years ago when he served in the Army. He says he was proud to be a part of a brotherhood, something…

Joe’s Geode Shop – My Interview with a Motivated 9-Year Old Entrepreneur

The story of a 9-year old entrepreneur caught my attention this summer. With his business savvy, incentivizing leadership, and friendly smile I was curious about where he came up with his ideas and company. Here’s my interview with and story of the motivated young man… It’s an interesting time to be in business. It’s an even…
