6 Dimensions of Wellness

March 1st marked the launch of my new initiative, the Selfishly Happy Academy.

In order to help my clients lead happy and rewarding careers and to find meaning and satisfaction in their work I often use a wellness model to address the whole person.

One of my most read, most loved and most shared blogs is Selfishly Happy. This has to date been the hardest blog for me to write. It was like peeling my skin off and allowing the world to see my insides. I sat on it for days before publishing it.

I am inspired by greatness, by beauty and by strength, but my love for all things chocolate and my crazy busy schedule has not allowed me to find the inspiration needed to get my body together.

women-workingIf you missed our January luncheon I know you're already regretting it. We had a BALL! In my line of work I meet wonderful women every day that are doing exciting things, have amazing ideas or are just plain brilliant. We talk in bubbles about work, friends and families, but seldom do those conversations intertwine. Until now!
