Abigail Forsyth, KeepCup CEO | Saving the Earth, one cup at a time

Ahead of the Curve!!

Wow! Abigail Forsyth has an inspirational story.

We talked to her from just outside Melbourne Australia on how she and her brother came up with the earth-saving concept of KeepCup.  The colors and the freshness of the idea. They are changing the way we visit our cafes. They are defining what it means to have a successful business and take care of the people. The earth and profits, it is possible. They were recently awarded a designation that you will hear about in the conversation. She is definitely, “AHEAD OF THE CURVE”.

Find out how! LISTEN to a very inspiring 12 minutes from our down-under partners.

Your JUNK drawer CAN be Beautiful


This week we talk about “O” for Organization

I decided to tackle my kitchen junk drawer. The messes hidden in our lives bring us down. Every time I open the junk drawer (which is often, since everything is in there), I can feel my energy decrease. A small “UGH!” overcomes me. I say to myself, “one day, when I have time!” Isn’t that what we all say? I mean, don’t we have the best intentions?

This week, I tackle the junk drawer demon! See what happens when I open the drawer with the plans to cause order where there is chaos.

What are you doing with ALL your free time?


This week is it “F” for Freedom

As we close out summer we reflect on free time and how we use it. According to a new study released by the U.S. Department of Labor, Americans have more free time and less work time in 2013 than we did in 2003. Really? I was working more then? I have more free time NOW?

According to the study, we have 10 minutes more of sleep, 10 minutes more of TV watching or leisurely activities, 13 minutes less of work-related activity and 3 minutes less of exercise time or physical activities. This is astounding to me,

Elephants Have It & So Do We !

This week it is “T” for Togetherness

Elephants have it and so do we; the desire to connect! Do you have a Shirley and Jenny reunion coming up? I have been looking for a way to get my favorite elephants in my newsletter.

TOGETHERNESS is the theme this week. We are on the “T” in MOST LIFE.

Elephants have a very social culture, they like to be in family packs of sometimes greater than 100 in their herd. Their size captivates me as I watch (thank you, YouTube) elephants connect with each other and other animals. They are gentle, caring and crave connection.
