Her Life's Work? To Inspire. RIP Avis, 86 Year Old Queen of Vertical Caving

Jul 14


A dear family friend passed away a few days ago and it got me thinking about our real work as female leaders in our corporations and communities. The following short clip shows two record breakers: Avis and a 9 year old girl, who was her caving partner. (Wow, right?!) If anyone ever doubts where we stand, how we can move into and climb out of challenging spaces, and what an everyday legacy we create, call on Avis. I am humbled and grateful for such a role model.

Little Ninja: Don't Be Sad, Be Awesome

Jun 11


Just a little ninja inspiration for today: Starting up in today's economy can be tough, even for the most bad ass of ninjas. Corporate paper is drying up, everyone is short on time as they need to do more with vanishing resources and it's hard to get a soapbox when there's so much signal to noise in a saturated marketplace. I get it. I've been there. And I've fought my way out. You can too as there's wisdom to be had. Take Barney Stinson's advice from How I Met Your Mother: "When I get sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead."

Let that be your battle cry and just get started. Never take sad for an answer.
