Business consultant, coach and strategist. Passionate about helping others be the best they can be, in business and in life.
I'm a big believer in moving on when you've accomplished what you set out to do. Whether that's with the same organization or a different one, whether it's moving on to new challenges or new environments, I've spent my life "re-inventing myself" and that has given me a depth and breadth of experience and opportunity. Not always easy. Not always fun:) But in the end, oh so rewarding. Cheers! Kaarina

I've always said (about my lines): you can smudge the line, but don't cross it. I have very clear lines that I draw, maintain and hold dear to my values and heart. Cheers! Kaarina

Who made the statement "Mistakes are just opportunities in working clothes"? I believe mistakes are learning opportunities, but I also say, make a particular mistake only once. Repeated mistakes mean learning hasn't occurred. Amber-Lee has a great quote too...but I'll leave that for her to share :) Cheers! Kaarina

My dear friend that I have been so out of touch with lately:( What a wonderful post, sparked by @Lori 's post. We have both been undergoing family turmoils, although none that would compare with what Lori has gone through, with such grace and amazing fortitude.
I encourage you Barbara @Late_Bloomers to continue to nurture that inner voice and inner child, and to always mindfully live in the moment. And I will be first in line for that book of yours:) Cheers! Kaarina

A friend of mine sent me a quote that said: "Just write baby. Just write." I keep that on my desk...and I write! Cheers! Kaarina

@AlaskaChickBlog Wise words my friend "if you make it twice - it is not a mistake - it is a choice." That's brilliant. Maybe I can paraphrase it and use your words this way..."When you make the same mistake twice, the second time isn't a mistake...it's a choice...and it's the wrong one." :) Cheers! Kaarina

Well you know I'm going to quote you, especially on fiction: "Just write baby, just write." Cheers! Kaarina P.S. Fab new look!
I particularly like your point #3: write it down. I say to my clients, "a plan in your head is no plan at all. Be specific. Write it down. Writing makes it real." Cheers! Kaarina

Behind the door, behind the curtain in Oz...interesting places to take others on your journey. Took a big step yesterday publishing my first short piece of fiction on my blog. It definitely took my community/clients to places I'd not yet shown them: and it was wonderful! Thanks so much for the link to the Q & A article: I appreciate it. Cheers! Kaarina P.S. If you'd like to take a gander, I entitled the piece The Winter of Her Life
Being present and putting attention to one's intention by taking action...keys to results and success:) Cheers! Kaarina

A "build it and they will come" approach to anything in business simply doesn't work. You are quite right. Without a plan and strategy, you might have the brightest, smartest blog, but it might be filled with crickets. Cheers! Kaarina
