“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart.  Wishing you happiness.” — Helen Keller


This year I just want to say how thankful I am to my family, friends, relatives and my clients for their love and support with my new book, Motivation Now!  It has been a success.  I couldn’t have done that without all of you.  Thank you for your purchases, your reviews and for sharing my book with others.  I have received great praise in the Reading Daily Times Chronicle, the Arlington Advocate, the Reading Advocate and the Boston Globe.  I also enjoyed a Radio-Entrepreneur Session (click here to watch the interview).  Thanks again, because these sales of the book have resulted in a donation my favorite charity, Children’s Hospital.

Good Luck and Happy 2018!

Happy Thanksgiving – Gratitude Now!

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
— Brian Tracy

Every year there are many things to be thankful for, but this year I am especially thankful for so many people and things.  I will try to list them out.

My book, Motivation Now!

Motivation Now! was released in September 2017 and I am grateful for all those that have bought a copy.  The book is available on Amazon (link here) in both kindle and paperback format.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the team that helped me put this all together: Dee – Graphics, Sandra/Liz – Editors, Sherry – PR, Ed/Robbie – Launch Experts, and the 60+ people that read, reviewed and helped me to promote the book!  Since the launch, three local papers featured me (two of those on the front page), and the Boston Globe even picked up the story (thanks Sherry!).  I have also been able to share my story with the Female Entrepreneurs Club, and was interviewed by Radio Entrepreneurs (interview will be available shortly on-line at  If anyone is ever interested in writing their own book, I would be more than happy to share my experiences.  It was a long process, and I now know it takes a village to raise a child and write a book.

My family & friends,

My husband & I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary in June, and this month we will join Cardinal O’Malley and other couples (celebrating their silver and golden anniversaries) at Liturgy for the Archdiocese of Boston.  John’s parents will celebrate their 53rd Anniversary.  Last year my parents attended the Archdiocese’ celebration for their Golden Anniversary with the Cardinal.

I am blessed with many close friends, especially those from my high school (Laura, Elizabeth and Kathy) and college (Dawn, Roxanne, Julie, Susan and Nadine).  This year my high school class is celebrating their 30th reunion.  If you know anyone from the Arlington High Class of 1987, please have them get in contact with me!  We always have a fun time and it is a great opportunity to catch up with old friends.

My son & his caregivers,

November marks the 7-year anniversary since John Robert’s Open-Heart Surgery. He is medication free and his small heart monitor was removed in August.  We are ever thankful for those caregivers that continue to look after John Robert.  As his heart grows we expect he will need surgery again to address the leaflets that were created when he was just 3.5 years old.

My clients,

Finally, I want to say thank you to all my clients.  I am grateful for past, current and future clients.  My clients are important since without them I wouldn’t be able to share my skills and experiences.  This allows me to use my gifts to help others through life’s difficult challenges.


I always challenge those reading this blog to take a moment and create your own list of people and things for which you are thankful.  What are you going to do to express your gratitude?  How can you make sure you complete this important task not only now, but also throughout the year?

My thanks,

In addition to the recognition above, I want to remind everyone that I am offering free skill seminars this fall. My next FREE skill class is on Interviewing Preparation and Questions.  The call will be on Wed., Nov. 22 at 12 noon and everyone that attends will receive a copy of the top 30 Interview questions.  Please click here to send me an email and sign up for the call.

Fall Workshops Are Here!!!

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”–Lao Tzu


First, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the horrific act that occurred in Las Vegas last week.  I pray for all of the families that were affected.  While we may never feel totally safe in a large arena or activity, we can’t let this scare us.  That’s how we let those aimed at destroying our way of life win.  We should remain vigilant, but also continue to go about our daily lives.  Remember Boston Strong.

As a coach, I often find my clients struggling to define their personal brand.  Most folks find themselves either with a wealth of experience and knowledge but unable to parse it effectively, or limited skills and having to only focus on those pieces that demonstrate the most impact.  While branding encompasses more than what can be explained here, one of the most important ways to communicate one’s brand is the resume.  Whether you are in the market for a new job, or just wanting to keep your profile up to date, regular checks of your resume are essential.

This fall I am planning to offer a few different skills workshops, the first of which will be a FREE Resume Workshop on Wednesday, October 25th at 12 noon (EST).  Myself, along with resume writer Gary Glickman, will share our expert advice and some resume examples/edits during the session.  Here is your chance to get your resume looked at.  We will be accepting resumes and choosing 3-5 of them to go through live.  However, you need to be on the phone for the call.  To register, please send me an email by clicking here and if you wish to have your resume considered for review please remember to attach a PDF copy.

Motivation Now Book
My book, Motivation Now! has been available for 1 month now.  Thanks to all for your positive comments, and thank you to those who have purchased a copy.  I have sold out of all of my initial books.  I am planning to place another order to replenish my supply.  Several people shared their desire to purchase books for the holidays, for their team, clients, family, etc.  If you are interested in ordering books, please let me know your quantity.  I offer a discount (from the Amazon price) to $10 per book.
