Habitual Change for Healthy Living

Piggybacking on old habits is the key to creating new healthy ones.


Taking a look at a current habit that you may have and tweaking it into a healthy habit could be easier than you think.  if you are a Starbucks addict (like I am) switch up your drink or snack.  Get Hearty Blueberry Oatmeal instead of Blueberry Scone or getting tea instead of a cappuccino.  Make a small change in one of your routines can make a big difference.  What is a habit that you want to change?

Daily Dose: You Gotta Eat

“One cannot refuse to eat just because there is a chance of choking.”

-Chinese Proverb


Every day is an opportunity to perform step out and do something that you have never done before: ask for help, sing out loud, dance in the park, changing your hair, failing royally and trying again.  Let’s face fears and encourage ourselves to be courageous.  Let’s be bold.

Daily Dose: Dreams of the Future

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Today I ventured outside my travel comfort zone by planning a trip to Montreal Canada.  We have been in Boston now a little over a year.  Time to cross the border.  Looking forward to going and exploring.  I have heard so many great things about it.  From bagels to unique buildings to beautiful landscape.

Where do you want to venture out to?  What’s stopping you?

I am very excited that by this time tomorrow the Chief Life Changers Etsy Store will be open for business.  It will slowly fill up with inspirational, motivational and empowering items that you can display or wear.

Fashion for the everyday Chief Life Changer.

I live to be comfortable in my everyday life.  I wear many hats and do many things.  Comfort makes it easy.  Fun colors, puts smiles on my face, so definitely be on the lookout.   If isn’t something that I would wear or share…I am not making it, I am not creating it.  My hopes is that you enjoy it just as much I enjoyed making it.  Here’s to living, loving, and laughing.  See you tomorrow.

Always A Student

Today, my new courses start at Berklee Online. I will be taking “Online Music Marketing: Campaign Strategies, Social Media and Digital Distribution” taught by Chandler Coyle and “Developing Your Artistry” taught by Camille Colatosti.  In order to get ahead in life and be able to live the life you not only desire, but deserve…you must always be student, always learning.


I look forward to learning everyday.  I have found my true calling and I am now in the learning and training phase.  I want to do it the right way. Natural talent can only get  you so far.  FUNDAMENTALS can take you all the way.  As I continue to embark on this journey, I look forward to sharing and growing.  These two course along came with four required textbooks.

I have a lot to learn apparently.  Over the next 12 weeks, I will find and develop myself as an artist, share my talents, and touch lives with the tools and insight from my instructors.  It’s a journey well worth it. Here’s to education, determination, and the thirst for knowledge.
