Pragmatic Idealism

For the past 25 years, I have been an entrepreneur and small business owner navigating the torrent of change and upheaval that defines the technology sector. Simultaneously, like many, my business has been buffeted by the same random, extreme, and unpredictable life forces that have tested us all.


I had no idea how those six words my husband, Greg, said to me would ultimately change me and my life. In September of 2020, after months of lockdown, confusion, and restlessness, I had decided to take a break—a long weekend in San Diego at the beach to recharge my soul and find some internal… Read more »

Connected Yet Disconnected Society

As a 23-year-old entrepreneur, I’ve grown up with tech as a solution. Given that I’m only a couple of days older than Google, it might surprise you that what I’m about to suggest is not tech-related. Instead, it goes back to our core, real-life human connection.

The Rust of Legacy Thinking

Floating in the ether is hard. The ether being an aspect of change, the space between what we have known and that which we will come to know.
