Climbing The Steep Side with Manny Wolfe

A few weeks ago, I had the honor and privilege to be a part of Emmanuel Wolfe’s podcast. It was a blast to have a meaningful conversation with him.

We talked about the power of story and the need for people to find ways to tell their story in ways that help them grow.

Dot Your i's and Cross Your t's: The High C Personality Style

She is calculated, witty and doesn't miss a beat.  She spends hours upon hours drawing intricate designs, and is content to doodle the details alone in her room all day.  It's not enough to get an answer to something, she has to know the reason behind the answer and make sure it all adds up.

The skeptic has to have the facts.…

Make Me Feel Important - The High D Style

As a child, I was the "bossy" one who always had an opinion on anything and everything.  I had my core group of friends, and I remember running the show frequently, even sending my best friend home when we were five because she was wasting paper and not coloring on both sides.  When I was twelve, I put my twelve-year-old cousin in time-out.  And she did it.  I wasn't a…

Personality Is Here To Stay - An Historical Intro

Outgoing, reserved, people-oriented, loyal, adventurous, detailed.  We all have so many adjectives to describe us.  Positive and negative, those adjectives paint a picture of who we are and how others see us. Since the beginning of time, people have sought to understand what makes these different behaviors.

 Around 400 BC, philosophers started to theorize on what really made people "tick," and as they went through the external elements they started to identify how it related to…

Health and Change: Relinquishing Control

While I was recovering and before I could have the second surgery to reattach my colon, we would be celebrating Easter. Anyone who knows my family knows holiday celebrations are a big deal and they usually revolve around food! I know – shocking when you think of an Italian-Greek family right?

Well I wasn’t…

Keep Yourself in the Balance

My wonderful yoga teacher likes to tell us to find the quake and tremble in our poses.  It's such a powerful point for yogis that moves beyond the practice and into your daily life.  There is this magical spot - it's beyond a position that is completely comfortable and it's that perfect tipping point before you've gone too far.  To further your practice, you balance between the ease of a pose you have achieved and then push yourself just a little beyond.  Find that point where your body…

Help - I Need Your Feedback!

In developing my business, I am really trying to figure out audience engagement first and foremost. I feel like FaceBook is a good fit, but I'm finding posting my blogs oftentimes they don't even get seen. I am trying to figure out if there is a magic time to post when people are typically on, or it this isn't the best way to engage an audience. I've been toying with creating a group or a page on Facebook, and I'm curious for feedback.

On top of that, I…

Organic Relationships - Keep Those Toxic Chemicals at Bay!

Organic.  What a buzz word.  We talk about organic living and organic food and how we want all things natural and good for you.  We want to know not only what we eat and how we live, but we look for how it connects the Earth to ourselves.  We seek positive connections where we restore and renew our Earth with sustainable living and communing with nature, making our own food, and creating environmentally conscious communities. And then....there are relationships.…

Something's Burning!

Wake Up Call

“Phil! Something’s Burning!” It was about 5:30 am and I went from half asleep to up and out in the kitchen in about a 1/2 second. Those that played softball with me back in the day probably aren’t shocked by the speed, but there isn’t much that wakes you up like smoke in your house.

My wife, Heather, determined there was something wrong with the refrigerator. She “heard a noise and then saw smoke.” Yep, definitely something wrong there.

How To Be The Perfect Parent


There comes a time in every parent’s life where you ask “Where did I go wrong?”  It seems your child will always find a way to throw you for a loop, whether its by cheating in a game, smarting off, or the scary world of teenagers, where “finding yourself” means the more dangerous, the better.  We wonder what we should have done differently, or if we said something wrong that has messed them up for life.  We set these high hopes that our kids will be doctors and…

WHO Is Your Home?

Last night, I finally got around to watching the movie "Chocolat."  (I rank this right up there with Twilight on being a female seductive obsession and being completely lost on the male counterpart.  I loved it, and PapaGray fought to stay awake.  But I digress).  There was a scene that was so tiny, but resonated with me.  In it, Roux (Johnny Depp) is checking in on Vianne (Juliette Binoche) after his…

No, Really...I LOVE My Kids!

The other day PapaGray and I had the pleasure of going out on a date, just the two of us. Ahhhhhhhh, no children.  No one dropping food on the floor, getting food (or lord knows what) all over my clothes, talking loud enough to ensure that even the deaf will hear, dominating the conversation, walking way too close to the street, and generally being like a herd of cats you are trying to corral in the middle of a monsoon.…

What am I Investing In?

This one investigated the environmental and sociological…

Life with five kids five and under

Welcome Bronwyn Jane Barnett into the world just two weeks ago. You hear different things people say about going from one child to two or from two to three. "Oh, after three it's just another baby." How ignorant I was to say that. Now with five littles age five and under, all I can say is two or three is easy. If you're on the pace of our family (not necessarily recommended though we feel extremely blessed by healthy babies and uncomplicated pregnancies), going from four to five right after…

365 days and what have you done?

It's the 1 year anniversary of me getting fired from my job, 1 year of me trying to make a go at working for myself and 1 year of me asking for help in supporting my family. I wish I could say this last year has been one of the best for me, but then I'd be lying.

Every year at my review I'd try to have a list of accomplishments to show my supervisor that I was worthy of an increase in pay and responsibility. It was a way of making sure that my compensation was equal to the work I…
