Monday Morning Boost: Three Wins & An Invitation

Monday Morning Boost: Three Wins & An Invitation

WIN #1 – ELISA Everything great about Red Edge Mentoring has Elisa’s influence all over it. She is a full partner in the business and she’s been my ultimate cheerleader, encourager, and confidant. When we launched Red Edge Mentoring in September 2016, Elisa went to work to bolster our savings through the startup phase. Back in February of this year, we set June 25th on our vision board to be her last day working for someone else. And we made…

Monday Morning Boost: Are You Good Enough?

Monday Morning Boost: Are You Good Enough?

Some questions… How often do you wonder if you are enough? Do you worry you don’t have what it takes to succeed? Does imposter syndrome full of ugly truths feel like your reality?  I have asked myself this question many times over the years. At one point I didn’t know the answers, and while the journey of my discovery will be lifelong, I’m grateful for the answers I’ve found so far. HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH? While…

Monday Morning Boost: Masters of Influence

Monday Morning Boost: Masters of Influence

The words we use as leaders have an impact. How we express those words will have even more of an impact, be it through writing, speaking, leading, managing, sales, negotiating, or communicating of any kind. Even in normal everyday conversations. Seeking to improve how I use my own words, and how to more intentionally express them, is a lifelong journey. Part of that quest connected me three years ago to the Mountain West Chapter of the National Speakers Association (NSA)….

Monday Morning Boost: And That’s Alright…

A lesson in self-grace this morning… I have been going nonstop for 4 days at the NSA – National Speakers Association Conference in Las Vegas. I have learned an incredible amount of great information.

Check out this experience I had at Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within a…

Monday Morning Boost: Always Our Old Glory

Monday Morning Boost: Always Our Old Glory

As I watch Old Glory majestically unfurl, my heart fills with great hope! No matter the strife, conflict, or war, Old Glory soars as a symbol of that which is most beautiful, most wonderful. She shines brightly, a beacon for those who search for light and hope as they navigate the storms of life, the challenges of their everyday journey. May our gratitude be eternal for those who stood to defend, and may we vow to never forget they who…

Monday Morning Boost: Recovering Father

Monday Morning Boost: Recovering Father

Today’s story comes together in the final paragraph. That’s true for most stories, and perhaps I don’t need to tell you this. Great writers, of course, would never make such a plea; they simply captivate with their first lines. Such captivation happened when I reread Jason Wright’s book, “Recovering Charles.” “I can’t look up without seeing it.” I knew I was in for a wonderful journey with the very first line. I recall with vivid feelings the lazy summer afternoon…

Monday Morning Boost: Remembering Mark Eaton… My “Great Encourager”

Monday Morning Boost: Remembering Mark Eaton… My “Great Encourager”

I first met Mark two years ago not long after I joined the National Speakers Association (NSA). That’s when we took this picture. I was new in the professional speaker world and Mark was one of the icons. I connected next with Mark in the summer of 2020 while attending the NSA Influence conference. Technically, this was at a watch party of the virtual conference and we were gathered at Royal Creek Ranches, a beautiful and rustic retreat center in…

Sunday Reflections: In Commemoration of Flag Day

Sunday Reflections: In Commemoration of Flag Day

Squished between Memorial Day and Independence Day is Flag Day, an oft-overlooked holiday designed to remember all that our Flag stands for. For over 225 years, Old Glory has proudly flown through times of war and times of peace. On federal holidays Flags fly on white poles through many communities. When a member of the military or law enforcement is killed in the line of duty, Flags fill the yard and line the streets. In September of last year, 20,000…

Monday Morning Boost: Celebrating Les & His Million Dreams!

Monday Morning Boost: Celebrating Les & His Million Dreams!

Hey Everyone! This is Elisa. Remember the Family Circus cartoons when Little Billy would “take over” drawing the cartoon when the creator Bill Keane was on vacation? Today is kinda like that. It’s Les birthday, one of my favorite days of the year. It’s a day to celebrate the birth of a most extraordinary man, my sweet husband. I want to dedicate 2 songs to Les from the movie “The Greatest Showman”. When I saw this movie for the first time,…

Monday Morning Boost: It Is The Soldier…

Monday Morning Boost: It Is The Soldier…

As one who has been the minister, the reporter, the poet, the organizer, and the politician… Though not the lawyer… And as one who salutes the Flag, serves beneath the Flag, and will one day have my coffin draped by the Flag… I echo the words, the meaning, and the honor symbolism of these hallowed thoughts from Charles M. Province… On this Memorial Day, Let Us Never Forget… It is the Soldier, not the minister Who has given us freedom of…
