This blog introduces you to my special brand of BIKE. I show you how to find your Best self, access your Inner strength, tune in to your Killer instincts, and use your Expressive voice. It's inspiring, spiritual, quirky, and it's all in your head. It's about ATTITUDE, not exercise, though that might be a side benefit.

Why follow me, anyway?

As an expert in overcoming obstacles and teaching people how to move forward despite them, I'm regularly quoted in national magazines. It's fun to be interviewed. At the same time, it's fun to let others in on a few good stories, too! Just thought you might like to know...

In the June issue of Family Circle, I'm quoted by Lori Erickson, who interviewed me for an article she wrote, "Retreat Yourself":

"I get away by sitting in the lobby of a local hotel. I don't check in but instead just quietly people-watch or order a glass of wine at the bar. Friends will tell me they want to join me, but I prefer going solo. I always take a book or a stack of magazines to read, just in case I feel like it. I consider it my 'pretend vacation' that I can do on the spur of the moment."

In the June issue of The Writer, I'm quoted by Kelly James-Enger, who interviewed me for an article she wrote, "How to overcome BURNOUT":

"I always try to learn a new skill each year, or expand on a skill I already know...and network. That seems to help me maintain enthusiasm for running a business that doesn't always provide immediate payoff. That kind of strategic planning helps me to stay focused on what's ahead and what I need to do to get there, rather than think about what's not happening now. In this economy, as unpredictable as it is, I'd rather focus on what I can do to get ahead and what bold action I might need to take. It's about staying positive, building confidence, and remaining competitive in the long term."
