Accelerate Your Success

Hard Stuff


If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I’m not a fan of the grind mentality. I don’t think working harder than everyone else is as effective as working smarter. I believe in rest and self-care. I believe in making sure that a minimum of 80% of what you do consists of things you […]

Understanding Consistency

Business Coach in Tupelo, MS

As a person who eats very specifically, I often get salads when I’m meeting someone for lunch or when I’m picking up food to eat at the office. There are two places in town that I like to use – both offer a variety of delicious salads. Both offer consistent results. You might assume that […]

Building Boundaries

A while back, we talked about the importance of having your own personal rules. Simply put, your rules help you establish everything from when you will work to what projects you’ll agree to do.

The Power of Ten Minutes

It is January. Most of my clients are working on annual goals (except those on a different fiscal timelines) and most have pretty big things they plan to achieve in the next twelve months. We are making sure that their goals are SMART and such. But that isn’t what will ensure a goal is achieved.  […]

Conquering Procrastination

One of the most common things people ask for help with is time management. When I dig down, I find that many clients are actually trying to fix procrastination. But, in most cases, procrastination isn’t really a time management problem. Instead, it is more about motivation (or lack of motivation) to get something done. When […]

Funky Feelings

The uncertainty of the past few years has made day-to-day living feel like the ups and downs of a roller coaster and resulted in a lot of funky feelings. While feeling a little off from time to time is normal, paying attention to how you feel and adjusting things to feel better is a good […]

Benefits of Changing Your Perspective


Most of us have heard of seeing the world’s glass as half-full or half-empty. The first is perceived as optimism and the latter is considered pessimistic. But, is it that simple?
