“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

African Proverb 

It never ceases to amaze me what we can accomplish when we work together. There have been plenty of times as a teacher, business owner and mother, it seemed so much easier to do something alone–to get it done quickly and my way also the right way. 

What I’ve learned in those same roles is how I can hire and inspire others to do work that they’re really good at and love (and I’m not). I’ve also swam to deeper waters when working in a group. Yes, it can be frustrating and you might feel as if you’re drowning, and WOW can we create things we could do on our own.

Luminous Alchemy is my group program where we’ll learn and practice, alone and together, ways to enhance our health—body, mind and spirit. Check it out here. Why? Because when we take care of ourselves, everything else in our lives has the possibility to fall into place.

This poem was written by a group of inspired women


into the air



like thoughts in my mind

listening to the quiet


I stopped thinking



jumping and shouting!


deep sigh



What are you doing that someone else could help you with? What would it be like to support someone and to be supported to get stuff done? What else is possible?

I’d love to hear your strategies to get stuff done—by not doing it yourself.
