“Having it all” certainly feels like that sometimes.  Balancing career, spouse/significant other, children, aging parents, extended family, & friends, is only a portion of time-balancing.  Meal prep, household & auto maintenance, laundry, higher education compete for our time as well.  Stretching a paycheck & saving for the future are always in juxtaposition with time.  Many in Law Enforcement sacrifice time to get money!  Daily life can easily feel like a down-hill roller coaster ride through a minefield!  And those are the normal days!  Add in catastrophic illness, job changes, adultery, death of a loved one, & the dynamics of stress can be beyond balancing.

This workshop focuses on insights & skillsets that help us lead our lives, versus just survive from day to day.  The program candidly discusses self-sabotage communication patterns, reasonable wellness strategies, tools for time management, & writing a personal mission statement for your life now.


  • Balancing is a daily committed decision.
  • You get one: one life, one body, one brain, one womb.
  • You get one: plotting risk-taking> personal growth> life-time-blocks
  • The power of one: being your own best friend or worst enemy.
  • Friend or foe: what’s your criteria for following the advice/manipulation of others?
  • Don’t forget to refuel. Running on empty is dangerous.
  • Clean out the trash. Not majoring in the minor. Not hoarding garbage.
  • Reasonable expectancies: gratitude is great medicine.
  • Writing a mission statement to help you manage your life now.
