Right this moment I am staring out the window of a little 63’ Franklin travel trailer, listening to the quiet morning waves of Lake Superior. Mornings are always my favorite time; it’s quiet, all I can hear is the light breathing of my three kids as they catch up on sleep from the previous day’s adventure mixed with the rustle of the biggest evergreens in the great state of Michigan.

Sitting in my little twin bed drinking freshly made camp coffee, I always have a happy heart when I’m working in the morning from Lil’ Frankie, the name we gave our travel trailer. She’s 150 sq ft of vintage charm that I worked all spring to restore. Every nook and cranny has a purpose and every time I’m in here my soul explodes with happiness. She is mine, and I made her. I made this life. Continue Reading A Mom, A Travel Trailer, & A Reminder to Take The Jump!

Do you dream of earning the corner office? Of buying the biggest house in the best neighborhood? Of providing for your family — of having it all?

Until one day, you realize that dream has changed. Or, it wasn’t really your dream at all!

Have you heard the phrase, “Change Guilt?”

You won’t find it in the dictionary, but it’s a real thing.

It’s the feeling we have when we seek out something different and our mind tells us to be happy with what we have. It’s your subconscious trying to protect you and it grows stronger by the stories we tell ourselves and the stories others tell us. Continue Reading Overcoming ‘Change Guilt’

If you’ve been following the Think Tank of Three podcast for any length of time, you might have noticed that we’ve been quiet lately. We have been feeling the impact of COVID-19 and the unrest around the treatment of people of color.

While we know it’s important to speak up and take action, we also know that we needed time to practice what we preach on our podcast, putting our families, our work, and our communities first.

We pulled back to take a minute to check ourselves, take some time off to process how we feel, and also to get some work done behind the scenes for exciting changes coming to the Think Tank.

And we want to offer this community an explanation as well as share some hope.  Continue Reading Mic check 1, 2, 3… And we’re back!

We are women, empowering all women. This space is a space for you. We want black women and women of color to feel safe and know they have a voice here.

More importantly, what must we do? Continue Reading Standing Up Against Racism: This is a Safe Space for All Women

What if you could take the very worst that life has given you, the darkest of the dark, the most painful, traumatic experiences, and turn them into hope and healing for others.

I don’t know about you, but I am spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME working from home.

I’m doing a terrible job of creating space between my home office and my home life.
