Yoga and Meditation: Yoga and meditation can do wonders for your physical and mental health. It gives time for inner reflection, stretching of the body, and a clearing of the mind. When done in the morning, it is a great way to set intentions for the day. When done in the evening before bed, it’s is calming and can improve sleep.

While modern medicine is a miracle, one of its shortcomings is a cultural consequence that I call “fix me.” We have become accustomed to the idea of having bad habits and then, when things start falling apart, we expect modern medicine to fix us with pills or surgery. Too often, these “fixes” are only short-term and can lead to other problems since everything in the body is connected.

Educate your employees: We’ve been conducting research over the past year around employer-provided mental health resources and one thing that consistently showed up in results is that there’s a gap in employee awareness of available mental health resources. This was especially true of non-management employees.

Patience with yourself. The right answers aren’t always going to come to you right away. Be patient with yourself as you mull over big decisions. This can be hard for me, personally, because it often feels as though I should have the right answers immediately, but remembering that it’s okay to take a little time to sort through my feelings really helps me.

A combination of both retail capital and venture capital is probably the best approach for a founder. The important thing is to value your company appropriately and set deal terms that are a win-win. A square deal, that allows the Entrepreneur to build their company with the funding they need, and for the investors to capitalize on the success of that Entrepreneur for fulfilling the vision.

Founders are often faced with the nagging question of whether Fundraising or Bootstrapping is the best choice for them. What is better, having access to capital or maintaining full control over your vision and…


If I can bring the conversation back to kindness for a moment, kindness works the same way. Unless we’re Mother Teresa or the Dalai Lama, there are going to be times when we let kindness slip — when we’re oblivious, or lazy, or grumpy. If we’re not kind every moment of every day, that doesn’t mean we aren’t kind — it means we’re human. But the more we practice kindness, the more we have it on our radar, and the better we’ll get at seeing opportunities all around us to extend kindness. We will also better recognize all the kindnesses…


I would like to continue being apart of the movement that inspires Spiritual Awakening. This was my intent when publishing my book, “Messages From Love.” I prayed for it to land in the laps of those that were ready and needed to hear it’s message. It’s all about Love, Unity, Honoring each other and finding our direct connection with God and the Divine Realm which exists beyond our sight. I hope to continue this quest through my books and everything positive that will be inspired through this work.

Often when we refer to wellness, we assume that we are talking…
