Frustrated at failing at New Year’s resolutions? In lieu of these popular but ill-fated resolutions, I have found my One Focusing Word to be a powerful and sustaining energy source in my daily life. It is a deceptively simple but effective practice.
How? Consider a few words and then upon reflection, commit to the one word that you believe will serve you well as your North Star for the year ahead; one word that can be instantly recalled to guide your inspiration, path, decisions, goals and values. Your mantra. Try taping your word to your bathroom mirror, computer monitor or nightstand as an easy prompt.
My focusing word for 2022 is CHALLENGE.
I am going to Challenge myself daily to get out of comfort zone and do what matters most. I am also planning a few epic Challenges to level up.

I have enjoyed an accomplished Fortune 100 corporate career in sales and marketing followed by over 25 years of entrepreneurial success in commercial real estate development, social impact investing and nonprofit capacity building. I can relate to entrepreneurs better than most. I have traveled the world and have accumulated a fair amount of wisdom to share. For decades I have been in the arena, working without a safety net, learning from failure and success. I am an astute student of calculating risk-reward and overcoming fear. I will be one of the strongest advocates, most invested partners my clients have ever worked with.
