Stepping into Your Greatness

The music was blaring from the stage. She swayed to and fro, her little hips gently moving in sync with the music. The look of bliss on her tiny face was undeniable. She was in heaven! Every fiber of her being yearned for more melodious beats. So when the singer on stage asked for the children to come up for “Kids Karaoke,” it was no surprise she shot up like a rocket, her little legs pumping to be the FIRST on stage, front and center, the mic closest to her eager mouth. The song was “Shake, Rattle & Roll” and boy, did she! Every time the chorus of children broke...

Bubblegum and Business

Note: As women, we are often accused of taking on MORE responsibility than we can handle, suffering all manner of side-effects from the ensuing burnout. In the proceeding article, I am not encouraging you to take on more than you can handle – things that really aren’t your responsibility or that you don’t need to take on. Rather, I’m encouraging you to take on those things that scare you. The things you KNOW will help you reach your goals, but you just can’t seem to get out of your own way to...

How to be Successful in a “Program”

The year was 2005. We had just purchased our first home in Southern California. Business was going well and for the first time in years, I felt ready to tackle my life-long “battle of the bulge.” As they say, when you’re ready, the teacher appears. I prayed and put out the good ju-ju vibes. Seemingly out of nowhere, a “Lifestyle Consultant” materialized. At the time, he was everything I was looking for. He believed in me. He had a plan that included a “maintenance phase” at the end. I wouldn’t have to live like this forever, he assured me. Just...

When Life Happens to You…

When Life Happens to You…

So significant, it ends a new sentence, chapter or book. Marking the good ‘ol days you didn’t know were the “good ‘ol days” until they were over. Life happens. Your dreams grow. Your actions grow. Your life grows. Life happens. Happiness is a state of mind. Joy comes from within and expands the ends of our own little world just a little further. Plucking the courage from our inner-most being, digging...

Outsourcing when You Don’t have a Budget

As I write this post, I have been lost in “coding hell” for the past 3 hours. That’s 3 hours I was SUPPOSED to be reaching out to my peeps and doing the things that bring me closer to my goals in my business. NOT trying to figure out how to integrate Mailchimp so it looks as beautiful as Melanie Duncan’s website (she has an “About Page” I’m extremely envious of). This gets me to thinking about the worth of my time. It may SEEM like I’m saving money when I spend my own time on something outside of my strengths. I’m not giving someone else...
