This Old House

We have lived in this house for the last 5 years.  I fell in love with it immediately. We already had a nice house when this one popped up on the market, but we were looking to have something with a little more room to grow.  This house came with a lot of...

The Strong Silent Type

For years Adam and I ran a couple’s small group through our church. Families would come to our home and we’d hang out, let our kids run amuck, and talk life stuff.  We really loved doing it and we learned so much in the process. It was always funny to notice...

Types of Business/Entrepreneurial Families

In my recent experience at the Dynamite Circle conference in Bangkok, I was reminded of how small my world really is. Adam and I have lived in three different houses in the last 15 years and those houses were all within 1.5 miles...

Alone

“One is the loneliest number that you'll ever doTwo can be as bad as oneIt's the loneliest number since the number one” -Three Dog Night What puts the A in A.S.S.? Alone.   Before we got married Adam traveled a lot for IBM.  He would leave on Sunday nights and come...

ASS (Alone, Stressed, Scared)

We need to talk about ASS. That’s right, I said it. Actually, this is an acronym that Adam came up with to force me say a naughty word in front of professionals at workshops. This is how the man amuses himself.  So, what is A.S.S.? It stands for ALONE, STRESSED,...

Emotions with Conflict

Happy Memorial Day! I get asked a lot about the Family Business Meeting and the conflict resolution methodology and why, and even how, the emotionality is taken out.  It isn’t, really. It’s about regulation. And trust, if I can do it, anyone can. I think this...

Perspective

If you know anything about art you know that perspective is what makes a piece seem to have form, distance, and look real even though it’s all on a flat surface.  I have found myself in the middle of several separate conversations lately about perspective and its role...

Conflict

It’s Monday!! This picture was taken at our engagement party nearly 13 years ago. Not much has changed except the color of Adam Anderson’s hair.  It seems a little ridiculous that I’m this excited to talk about conflict.  I’m still riding the continuing education...

The 3 C’s

Say hello to the 3C’s- the methodology behind Whole Life Entrepreneurship.  If you were to ask me on any given day whether I have a “good” or a “bad” life and relationships think that about 80% of the time I would say good.  But what about that other 20%? When it...

What is #forrealfriday?

I wanted to take a moment to explain #forrealfriday, the in-group post we do on Fridays and encourage the group to join in on. It is often about something happening in our lives that may be less that ideal or picturesque. I speak specifically of the recent grotesque...

Emotional Fitness and Tshering

I have a theory. I’ve been cultivating this theory for several years now, but recently had an experience that gives it some real support. My theory is that by working on yourself and your core relationships you increase your empathetic capacity. This empathy then...

Turning 38 and Perfectionism

This is it. This is the week I turn 38. Not yet old, but no spring chicken either. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m pretty proud of the scars I’ve acquired along my journey and I’m happy to be able to share the second big thing I’ve come to know in my life- don’t sweat...

Advocating for Yourself Without Being a Total A-Hole

Congratulations!  You’re married! And now we live happily ever after forever and ever.  Never a day of discord!!! Now you’ll always be completely satisfied and happy till death do you part! Nope.  Absolutely false. Not unless you can figure out a few things.  One of...

Welcome to WLE

Hi.  We are Kerry and Adam Anderson. Adam is a long-time business owner and entrepreneur and while that lifestyle has afforded us some really cool opportunities, the stressors associated with it lent to some serious problems in our relationship and our household. We...

Birthdays and Gratitude

Monday mood! I have a birthday coming up soon, and as the Birthday Girl I reserve the right to post about whatever I want! I want to share what I’ve learned in my time here on planet earth and because I’m so, so, so old I’ve learned a lot and will have to spread this...

Parenting Like a Boss

We’re talking parenting this week.  I wanted to be a mom SOOOOOO badly! And I was so excited when I found out I was going to have little Adam’s running around! Well, now that’s exactly what I have and I’m wondering if it will kill me. Are we the only ones who struggle...

Courage

Oh so many things to share. I don’t even know where to start! Necker Island was very powerful, inspiring, and empowering. Not to mention magical! We grew our network, our minds, and our hearts. But the main focus of the conference was to facilitate courageous...

Community: How Important Is It?

First ask yourself this question: when was the last time you had a conversation with someone and you just felt like they “got” you? Been awhile? Then maybe you’re in need of a community audit. There are all different types of communities and they all serve their own...
