The Koepke Family Quarantine Rules

Over the past few days Tyler and I have been attempting to wrap our minds around the uncertainty of what's happening with the COVID 19 virus and to talk with our kids about it.

I personally have been through the denial phase.

The sadness phase.

The irritation phase.

The frustration phase.

My first response was to flee...Who can watch my kids? I've got work to do! Can they go to their...

fulfillionaire leadership Mar 03, 2020
 

Conflict inherently has a negative connotation for many of us... 

It's something to be avoided. 

Or rushed through. 

Or avoided in the moment only to be rehashed with a safe sounding board afterwards.  

One of the most impactful lessons I've learned as I began to focus on my personal development was what a gift conflict really can be.  In the past, I...

What To Do When It Seems Like Everything is Going Wrong

 

I had a setback this week that hit me like a punch to the gut. I'm not going to bore you with the details of it, but let me just say, I'm up writing this blog post at 3:30 am because this setback is weighing on my mind. It sucked.

Phase 1 of dealing with setbacks usually looks something like this:

1. Curl up in a ball and throw myself a pity party

2. Reach out to get perspective from my most...

fulfillionaire Jan 16, 2020
 

I recently had the opportunity to fulfill one of my life's dreams: to see Oprah live. Her 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus tour was making a stop in my backyard. So, once again, I said "yes" to myself and bought the ticket ($90 on Craigslist in a suite, pretty "sweet" deal...pun intended). And here were my biggest take-aways.

1) Consistency yields results

The life principles that Oprah talked...

How a Fulfillionaire Sets Goals

fulfillionaire Jan 03, 2020
 

When you set goals, what is your process? For most people, they get super jazzed about an idea, they may or may not write it down, and then they go straight into implementation mode. 

For example, they’ll think, "I want to lose weight. I’m super motivated to do it because I’ve been eating like crap and none of my clothes fit."

Here we go again...another round of New Year’s resolutions that will bring us a sense of purpose and clarity, for what 2 weeks? 1 month? 2 months max? 

The statistics on how many people actually follow through and accomplish their New Year's resolutions are rather grim.

Don't Ever Let Anyone Tell You You Can't Do It

Uncategorized Feb 08, 2019

As my son turned 10 amongst the Disney magic, I leaned down and whispered to him,

“Don’t ever let anyone tell you that can’t create a spark in people AND make money from your own creativity, imagination, perseverance, and child-like wonder. The grown-ups forget about what’s possible. The kids know. The grown-ups come here to remember.”

Raising kids is so tricky....

Great Dads Are Super Sexy

I don’t know about you, but when I see my husband engaged and playful with my kids, it reminds me why I was attracted to this guy in the first place. There is nothing quite like seeing your kids lit up from humor and giggling and wrestling and play that (at least in my family) has it’s own sense of magic when it comes from dad.

When Tyler is lit up and “on,” he is...
