World Change Wednesdays: I Learned Triple Bottom Line on My First Day of Kindergarten

photo-1455884981818-54cb785db6fc.jpegFrom the first day of kindergarten to the final day of high school, my parents said the same thing to me every morning before I'd get on the bus or be dropped off at school.  I'm in my early thirties now.  I didn't realize until this week that they were teaching me how to live life with a triple bottom line.  

I'm so very thankful to my parents for instilling the triple bottom line in my life.  The concept is so deep that I didn't even realize the fuller implications until this week.  Actually, I was on the treadmill at the gym listening to a podcast when it hit me.

World Change Wednesday: Waterfalls

2016-08-11_11.08.53.jpgI was visiting a mountain on the Pacific coast where there were lots of waterfalls.  Brandon (pictured) likes to say we were "chasing waterfalls."  For me, it was a great time to reflect.  Being there gave me some perspective on life.  

I was trying to imagine what it would be like to be a water molecule - just single H2O surrounded by millions, if not billions of other H2Os.  I imagined thinking...

World Change Wednesdays: Fill In the Blank

photo-1467931117157-53f1a0ecba00.jpegI'm trying something a little different this week.  I want to inspire you to perhaps think a little bit bigger or a little bit brighter.  

I give you permission to read on and take some time to meditate, journal, think, whatever it is you'd love to do in response to this prompt.  Maybe grab a nice cup of coffee with a window seat and give yourself some space and continue reading.

World Change Wednesdays: Transforming the Dreaded To-Do List

photo-1466155443295-01c6fe2f72d2.jpegI seem to live in a cycle of going from feeling like I control my to-do list to feeling like my to-do list controls me.  Every few months, I feel completely overwhelmed and become like this cat... just wanting to take a nap already!  I never, ever can accomplish everything on my list.  Yes, I can prioritize, cut, delegate, etc. but there has to be a better way to accomplish goals than using a to-do list. 

So I gave up.  I stopped keeping a to-do list.  I transformed my to-do list into something inspiring...  Keep reading to see what I'm doing now.

World Change Wednesdays: 5 Things I Learned About Social Change from 10 Years of Marriage

ry_400.jpegOn July 1, Brandon and I celebrate being married for 10 years.  It both feels like yesterday and forever ago.  Time is weird like that.

As you might expect, we're being a little reflective over the past 10 years - both the 5 B.O. (before Overflow) and the 5 since Overflow opened.  One constant through all 10 years and even before is my activist nature.  Since I was a kid, I've been trying to make the world a better place in whatever ways I can.  So, when I reflect over the past 10 years, my mind automatically leans toward what I've learned about social change.

Here are 5 things I've learned about social change from being married.  I hope they inspire you in your activism, in your marriage, or both!

Take A Break

photo-1466193341027-56e68017ee2d.jpegMy last post was, "Break the Mold."  It's summer now so it's time to think about "taking a break." Which leads me to a question: Can taking a break help you make the world a better place?  If so, how?   

If you're like me, you might sometimes feel guilty for taking a break.  You might feel like you're not giving your business all you should, especially if your business is still in its youth.  You might feel like there's so much suffering to help alleviate.  Yet, we know that we can't work all day, every day.  We'll burnout and not be able to help anyone.

It's still hard though.  I know I definitely need some extra inspiration to help me step away from the computer, get out of the coffee shop, and go play.  So, I wrote down a 3 reasons to take a break and let loose this summer.  I hope they help you while they're helping me.

World Change Wednesday: Break the Mold

2016-05-15_15.40.04-1.jpgHabits. Does that word have a positive or negative connotation to you? I know for me it's both. I have some habits that I count of for my success and others that hold me back from being my best self.


Here's my take of why breaking the mold of both good and not-so-good habits might be worth it.

World Change Wednesday: Be a Supporter

bag-and-hands.jpgI recenty sat in on a webinar about finding the right support network. In case your unfamiliar, a support networking is about 5 to 10 people who you can really rely on. It's an entrepreneur's dream to have a great support network, especially since 70% of what a support network offers in emotional support. Emotional support is something I see as indespensible to starting and running a successful business.

But most of you reading this post aren't entrepreneurs. You're more likely to be the support network. Here are 4 benefits for you that might convince you to seek out an entrepreneur to support.

World Change Wednesday: Valuing Conflict

photo-1458724338480-79bc7a8352e4.jpegSomething you might not know about Brandon and me is that we fight a lot. Just ask our baristas. We always have different ideas about how to answer the questions of our business.  You see, Brandon is the oldest sibling in his family and I'm the youngest in mine. We also have widely divergent expertise. As you might pick up on already, conflict arises all the time. I think this has actually made us a better, healthier business. Let me explain why.
