When we have a craving for something–but we don’t know what–we reach for something sweet. Why is this? What kind of hold does this substance have on us and why is it being considered the “drug of the 21st Century?” My intention with this post is for you to get the facts on...Read More »
Are artificial sweeteners really bad for us? As I continue to research, I find newly released information about foods and substances we should NOT consume. Today, I want to talk to you about beverages that contain artificial sweeteners. You know, that white stuff that tastes like a strange sweet chemical that food manufacturers add to products to make you think you’re doing something good for your body. I know you love your zero calorie desserts, yogurts and sodas,...Read More »
It’s the end of the day and you are starving! On the way home you drive by at least a dozen take-out food joints and at least six restaurants.

The report is due in two hours. Or perhaps you’re in the middle of a mid-term exam. Or you’re making sales calls. Suddenly, bam! Around 10:30 a.m. and from out of nowhere you hit a wall! All you want to do is look out the window, or better yet, take a short nap. Hmmm…the first question that pops into my head is, what did you eat for breakfast? I hate to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to Mom, who has said it countless times: Breakfast is the most important meal of...Read More »
“Work-life balance was a mistake from the start. Because people don’t really want balance.

Cathy’s insight and guidance has, and continues, to help me organize my previously chaotic life into a group of systems that work well together. Her program helped me reduce the stress of trying to keep track of so many things at once, and save me significant time that can be used for more productive things. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and to keep track of, I highly recommend that you speak with Cathy about how her Time Strategies can help you make your life make sense.

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased her ADD Parental Strategies program. I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better. The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son. I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not. It’s a real eye opener! Thanks.
