The fall

That lower-case 'f' is on purpose. We're not talking a season here, we're talking an experience. A not-awesome experience. On a quick decision, I signed up for a half marathon next July. Awesome. No problem. I'm out of shape, but this is something I've done before, so it feels like a doable goal, something to... Continue Reading →

Passion: 2

Okay, now we've discovered something you are passionate about - hooray! But Caryn, why did you ask us to sit with it for a minute? I'm glad you asked! If you're anything like me, it can take a moment of reflection to determine if something truly is mine, or if it's something I have assumed... Continue Reading →

Passion

A few weeks ago, I asked all of you what you wanted to hear about, and the topic of passion came up. Specifically, finding passion again.

Saturday morning

Monday through Friday, I hustle. I #Werk. I roll myself out of bed before the rest of my people, dress like the #BossLady that I am, and walk my high-heeled self out the door to hit the office. And once I'm there, it's nonstop. Email. Phone calls. Meetings. Instant Messages. Text Messages. Conference calls. GoToMeetings.... Continue Reading →

Deliberate purposefulness

I was recently asked to be in a commercial for a local eatery. In the original request, my understanding was that it would be a crowd scene shot, looking to fill the restaurant, bring your kids, eat cupcakes, it'll be fun kind of commercial. Awesome! Excuse to get out with the family and get free... Continue Reading →
