Happy Earth Day!

It's an extra special day for me because it's also the day I married a gifted gardener.

Over the years, as my husband Rick has transformed our back and side yards of our Atlanta home into a bountiful oasis, I have benefited greatly. From both the fruits of his labor (blueberries, apples, figs, grapes, lemons, tomatoes, cucumbers, snow peas, peppers, collards, kale, etc.) and the life lessons learned.

I've learned about the power of preparation, planning and patience. That it pays to pay attention if you want things to grow and not go to seed. 

I've learned the pride and joy that comes from sharing our harvest with neighbors and friends and, occasionally, the woman who delivers our mail.

I've learned the therapeutic gifts of retreating from my office for a while to capture the fleeting beauty of that day's flowers by taking pictures like these. If you're not inspired every day by nature, you need to get out more!

I've also learned about deadheading the roses. When a rose blooms and then it dies, it continues to take energy from the bush until you clip it off so the energy can go to the new blooms. What a great analogy that is to life! Where can you "deadhead" or let go of what no longer serves you so you can focus on what's most important? You can view my short video, "Deadhead the Roses," here

I know many of you enjoy your own gardens and hope you'll share your life lessons on my Facebook Page or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!

LinkedIn Wisdom
Molloy Communications  
Way before I was a professional speaker, I was a marketing consultant. In fact, I started Molloy Communications when I was just a child back in 1988. 

While I focus mostly on speaking these days, there is one area of marketing I continue to do because it's so rewarding for me and in demand by professionals who want to get noticed. I audit LinkedIn profiles. That means I recommend ways to make your profile more effective and write compelling copy and client testimonials to set you apart.

Since you're probably on LinkedIn, I share a strategy each week to help ensure your profile is the best reflection of you.

LinkedIn Wisdom #9: Use @ in your posts 
When you post an update, you can tag someone in your network that you want to read that post or be credited for that post by following the @ sign with the person's name. 

Connect with me at and let me know you read my newsletter. I'll send you a special gift.  



Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 


"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 


"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
