What? Barbara Nelson Coaching and Successfully Solo. New old blog.

Was Successfully Solo. Is Barbara Nelson Coaching. Again. Last time's the charm.
Was WP, is Google Blogger.
In transition. Using a simple template. Imperfect action.

And is there a Barbara Nelson Coaching site? Nope, not yet. It's all here right now.

And is Successfully Solo coming down? Yup.

Why?  Because while everyone loved the name, me most of all- clients refer people to Barbara Nelson. And prospects look for me that way. So.

The whole point of this online presence is to help the people who need my services find me- so I can meet my "impact 40 people's lives in a significant way" goal for the year.

A gorgeous site isn't the point. A snappy name isn't the point. Well, not in my business. It's about helping lawyers to set and meet their goals as efficiently as possible.

Welcome to Barbara Nelson Coaching. The coaching and programs are fully evolved. The online presence, not so much. Glad you found me. I appreciate you.

Work Life Balance is a Crock? So What.


If I see one more person belittling the notion of balance or the myth of balance or the like, I’m going to reach through the screen and punch him. Or her. Or you? Yes, there’s no such thing as work/life balance. Yes, there’s no way to “have it all.” Yes, you are superior and far too intelligent and sophisticated to indulge in such fantasies.

51 Weeks Of Pace: There Are Many Paths

And now- a change of pace, a guest post by Nora Rubinoff, who helps make Successfully Solo a great place for me to work! Enjoy- Barbara


On day three of the 5:30 am fitness boot camp that I'd enrolled in, I collapsed in my office mid-morning. I spent six hours (and goodness knows how many thousands of $) in the ER. My heart and blood are fine, thankfully. The doctor finally ruled it as exhaustion. There is something about getting hit with a 2 x 4 that knocks sense into most of us. It took me being found by my son, collapsed, on the floor in my office, to realize that maybe I'm pushing myself a little too hard. We're all our worst critics, right? I've certainly been my own. Full disclosure - I'm not so tough.
