One of my VIP clients recently asked me how to handle it when, in a social situation, the conversation turned to gossip and rumors about another mutual acquaintance who wasn’t present. He was uncomfortable and wanted to leave. His partner wanted to stay.


What would you do?


Upleveling IS hard. Staying where you are is comfortably uncomfortable. 


I’m responsible for what I put into my day.

I’m responsible for what I give and for how I show up. 


What is gossip or rumor mongering based on? 

  • Fear and Lack. 
    • Really, you wouldn’t say something about someone if they didn’t somehow mean something to you and you weren’t judging yourself against them.

Give THAT some thought.



Check your mindset.


Coming from a space of gratitude and abundance, feeling like you’re enough… that’s easy intellectually, and it’s harder to practice.




Just… practice.
