I care and I don’t care – TRULY

I care and I don’t care.

It’s a mantra that nuns tell themselves. Interestingly, I learned this from 2 credible sources, Clarissa Pinkola Estees and Carolyn Myss, when they interviewed each other. They were raised in Catholic schools and they recalled their memories of the nuns, their teachers, with great fondness.

This surprised me, as I always imagined nun teachers holding mean rulers in their hands. Media! You know.

Nuns who care for orphans and hungry and sick people have to maintain inner balance in order to be strong. But their great advice works in business, too.

I care and I don’t care. Empathy and compassion balanced with clarity and firmness.

My clients don’t pay me to be a loosey goosey. They thrive when I meet them from a place of confidence and clarity.

Sorry (not really 😊), but there is an attitude of I DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU THINK underneath. And they can feel it.

One client recently thanked me for it in a testimonial. She told me that she is SO GRATEFUL that she can’t bully me or bulldoze me with her energy and strong will. YEAH!

I care and I don’t care.

When you know your truth AND your intent and heart are in the right place, DO YOUR THING. SHOW YOUR COLORS. SPEAK YOUR TRUTH. That’s what I’m doing here at this blog.

PLEASE SHARE YOU! The world needs YOU!!!

Be a badass nun! -says the Jewish gal from Brooklyn!

Testimonial excerpt (you can read the whole thing here). HELL YEAH!!!

In working with a coach, I need somebody who will stand WITH me and AGAINST me, simultaneously. I would walk all over other people. Debbie stands firm and holds me accountable to the things that really count. She will not let me walk all over her. And as a result, I get to win. She identifies what it is that will work best for my personality in business systems, and in personal growth. Then she coaxes me into implementation.
