By Heather Dugan, EyesOnNews.com, Connection Coach, June 11, 2015 – Bad habits are a familiar misery and easy default. However ugly the terrain, we all like a good shortcut.

When you know you should go…Part One

By Heather Dugan, EyesOnNews.com, Connection Coach, June 10, 2015 – Her response to “how are you?” was a wincing shrug. Sara dabbed at stray tears and quietly admitted that, once again, she’d been sucked back into the harmful relationship she’d resolved to end.

Urbanization and an Epidemic of Loneliness

By Heather Dugan, EyesOnNews.com, Connection Coach,  June 1, 2015 – There are more of us wedged into less space with global urbanization on a steady increase.

Cabernet Coaches: The Power of Connection

Cabernet Coaches: The Power of Connection

By Heather Dugan, EyesOnNews.com, relationship guru, Mar 9, 2015 – I call them Cabernet Coaches. No, they aren’t highly specialized sommeliers or vineyard strategists—and some of them actually prefer the chardonnay. Rather, these are the loosely gathered and rather eclectic group of women I meet with for weekly Wednesday night happy hours. “All ages; all stages”—we come in all sizes of life experience. It’s not about the drink specials. It’s basic elemental networking without the use of that stifling—and for some, […]
