Ask The Expert: Q&A

Here’s a question I’ve been asked like a few hundred times:


“Can mindfulness practices really make a tangible difference in my success and well-being?”


Definitely! Mindfulness practices have been game-changers for me on my own entrepreneurial journey and that of my clients. It’s made a real difference in my success and well-being, and I can’t help but share the antidotes they’ve provided.

As an entrepreneur, focus is key. Mindfulness has helped me supercharge my concentration by keeping me in the present moment. Now, I’m fully engaged in my tasks, meetings, and conversations, leading to better decisions and increased productivity.

And let’s talk about stress. We all know entrepreneurship can be a rollercoaster ride. But thanks to mindfulness, I’ve got some serious stress-busting techniques up my sleeve. Regular meditation and deep breathing exercises have given me a whole new level of self-awareness. I spot stress triggers like a ninja and handle them with grace. It’s like having a secret resilience superpower!

Oh, and the creativity boost is real! Mindfulness has unleashed my inner innovator. By incorporating practices like mindful walks and journaling, my problem-solving game has gone through the roof. When I quiet my mind and stay present, fresh ideas flow like mad. It’s like a treasure hunt for breakthrough solutions.

But it doesn’t stop there. Mindfulness has turbocharged my emotional intelligence. I’m tuned in to my own emotions and those of others. It’s like I’ve developed a sixth sense for empathy. And that translates into better relationships with my team, my clients, and my business besties. We communicate better, collaborate more effectively, and create a positive work environment.

Last but not least, mindfulness keeps me centered and balanced. It reminds me to check in with myself, align my actions with my values, and set boundaries. I’ve realized that self-care is non-negotiable on this wild entrepreneurial ride. By staying mindful, I’ve found a healthy work-life balance that keeps me firing on all cylinders.

So, my friend, if you’re an entrepreneur looking to level up, give mindfulness a shot. It’s a game-changer that can transform your focus, stress management, creativity, emotional intelligence, and overall well-being. Trust me, it’s worth it. Embrace mindfulness and get ready for some serious entrepreneurial magic!

Recipe of the Week: Eat Yourself Mindful

Isn’t it funny how our choices in times of stress can sometimes seem counterintuitive? For me, when I find myself overwhelmed with too much on my plate, my go-to dinner is French Onion Soup. Now, you might wonder why I choose a dish that requires time and attention instead of something quick and easy. But there’s a deeper reason behind it all. Making French Onion Soup has become my gateway to mindfulness, a way to carve out some “me time” and fully immerse myself in the present moment while creating something truly delicious.

From the very beginning of the process, as I slice the onions and inhale their pungent aroma, I can feel myself starting to slow down. The rhythmic motion of stirring the onions in the pot, patiently waiting for them to caramelize, becomes a soothing ritual. It’s a reminder to let go of the hustle and bustle of the day and fully embrace the art of cooking.

As the onions gradually transform into a deep golden brown, the kitchen fills with an intoxicating fragrance. The simmering broth, the gentle bubbling sound, and the occasional splash of wine add to the sensory symphony. In these moments, I am completely present, fully engaged with the process. The worries and distractions of the outside world fade away as I focus on each step, savoring every aroma, sound, and texture.

The act of ladling the rich broth into individual bowls and topping them with a generous layer of melted cheese feels like a mindful meditation. It’s a moment of pure joy, witnessing the transformation of simple ingredients into a comforting and nourishing meal. And when I take that first spoonful, the flavors dancing on my taste buds, I am reminded of the power of living in the present and finding pleasure in the small moments.

Cooking French Onion Soup has become more than just preparing a meal; it’s a way for me to reconnect with myself, to honor my need for self-care and reflection. It’s an opportunity to practice mindfulness, to cultivate a sense of gratitude for the ingredients, the process, and the final result.

So, if you’re seeking a mindful escape, a way to slow down and indulge in the pleasures of the present, I invite you to join me in the journey of making French Onion Soup. Allow yourself to fully engage in each step, to savor the scents and sounds, and to relish the final product. Embrace the therapeutic act of cooking, and let the experience nourish your soul as much as it does your taste buds.

Remember, amidst the chaos of everyday life, there’s always room for a little mindfulness and a delicious bowl of French Onion Soup. Bon appétit!


Servings: 4

Calories per Serving: Approximately 300 calories

Cooking Time: 2 hours


  • 4 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or ½ teaspoon dried thyme)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Baguette slices
  • 2 cups Gruyère cheese, grated

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 30-40 minutes, or until the onions are caramelized and golden brown.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Pour in the white wine and deglaze the pot, scraping any browned bits from the bottom. Allow the wine to simmer for 2-3 minutes, allowing the alcohol to evaporate.
  4. Add the beef broth, bay leaf, and thyme to the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 30-40 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  5. While the soup simmers, preheat the broiler in your oven. Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet and toast them under the broiler until they are lightly golden.
  6. Once the soup has finished simmering, remove the bay leaf and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  7. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Ladle the soup into oven-safe bowls or crocks. Place a few toasted baguette slices on top of each bowl, then generously sprinkle the grated Gruyère cheese over the bread.
  8. Place the bowls on a baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling, with a golden brown crust.
  9. Carefully remove the bowls from the oven (they will be hot) and let them cool slightly before serving.
  10. Serve the French Onion Soup hot and enjoy its comforting flavors and rich aroma.

Note: The cooking time may vary slightly depending on the intensity of your stove’s heat. Keep an eye on the onions as they caramelize to avoid burning them.

Now you can savor this classic French Onion Soup, a hearty and flavorful dish that’s worth the wait. Enjoy!

As small business owners, we often find ourselves immersed in a whirlwind of demands and challenges, constantly striving for greater success, achievements, and growth.

Each moment holds within it everything we truly need.

Weekly Meditation

Harmony Within: Embracing Mindful Awareness

Listen to Audio

Welcome to the “Harmony Within” guided meditation. Find a comfortable seated position, allowing your body to relax and settle into the support beneath you. Gently close your eyes or lower your gaze, whatever feels most comfortable for you.

Take a deep breath in, filling your lungs with fresh air, and exhale slowly, releasing any tension or stress. Allow your breath to return to its natural rhythm, without trying to control it.

As you continue to breathe, bring your attention to the sensation of your breath. Notice the gentle rise and fall of your abdomen or the coolness of the air entering your nostrils. Be fully present with each breath, feeling the soothing rhythm as it flows in and out.

Now, imagine a soft, radiant light at the center of your being. Visualize this light growing brighter with each breath, expanding to fill your entire body. Feel this light enveloping you with a sense of peace and tranquility.

As you bask in this inner radiance, imagine a gentle wave of calmness washing over you. With each inhalation, imagine this wave carrying away any stress, tension, or worries, allowing them to dissolve into the vastness of the ocean.

Now, shift your attention to your physical body. Scan your body from head to toe, bringing awareness to any areas of tension or discomfort. As you encounter these areas, imagine the soothing light and wave of calmness gently embracing and releasing any tension, allowing your body to relax more deeply.

Next, bring your attention to your thoughts and emotions. Notice any thoughts or worries that may arise, without judgment. Imagine them as passing clouds in the sky, floating by and dissipating, while you remain anchored in a place of stillness and peace.

Take a moment to acknowledge any emotions that may be present. Allow yourself to fully experience these emotions without resistance or attachment. Offer yourself compassion and understanding, knowing that it is safe to let these emotions be as they are.

Now, bring your attention to your heart center, the space in the middle of your chest. Visualize this space expanding with each breath, radiating love and compassion. Feel a deep sense of connection and harmony within yourself and with the world around you.

As we come to the end of this meditation, take a moment to express gratitude for this time you’ve dedicated to your well-being. Know that you can carry this sense of harmony and mindful awareness with you throughout your day, allowing it to infuse every aspect of your life.

When you’re ready, gently open your eyes or lift your gaze, bringing your awareness back to the present moment. Carry the peace and harmony you’ve cultivated within you, knowing that you can return to this state of mindful awareness whenever you need.

Remember, Harmony Within is always available to guide you towards a place of inner calmness and balance.
