I'm sure you have heard the old saying, "No man is an island." Much of us today are taught that building partnership, collaborations, and relationships professionally are the way to go if we want to increase our reach and audience. However, what do you do when those you are collaborating with burn you, don't hold up to their promises, or take advantage of the partnership you were hoping to create? I know I'm not the only one here who has been let down by a professional partne
Happy Work It Wednesday! How is your summer going so far? I've been able to spend the last few weeks here in the breathtaking Mid-West. Hopefully you have been able to enjoy a bit of travel time as well.
Similar to you and other women, I love to give compliments to others and point out their awesomeness. Throughout my trip in the Mid-West I noticed more than ever the differences between men and women and how they respond to a compliment. So many women in the past few weeks
This summer is a summer of self-development and change for me. I decided to take a leap and try new things and really break barriers in all areas! One thing I started implementing a few weeks ago was a more comprehensive morning routine. I heard a speaker once say that knowledge is the best gift you can give yourself. He recommended feeding your mind in three ways: read something, listen to something, and watch something that is going to help you grow and empower you. I have
Happy Work It Wednesday! It's June, can you believe it?
A few days ago I went to a networking gathering in Costa Mesa. It was one of the most enjoyable events I had been to as it involved not only connecting with others but learning and collaboration. at the event we watched two TED talks from two impactful leaders and then discussed what we got from it and how we can utilize this information within our own companies and projects.
Incredibly inspired by the first talk w
A few weeks ago I had the incredible opportunity to go do a "Ted Like" talk in Toronto, Canada. My keynote talk is generally on "Break Your Limiting Beliefs Create Unlimited Success" however, this time I was asked to speak on The Top Tips to Effective Leadership!This was really exciting for me as it truly is one of the elements I am incredibly passionate about.
So let's start with the question, what is a leader? What are the qualities they should embody? In my opinion a lea
I'm sure you are familiar with the famous quote by Jim Rohn, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with!" It's a quote that does carry a lot of weight and truth as the people you surround yourself with can have an adverse effect on your success and happiness. However, building a tribe, community, or network around you is the easy, but building one that truly benefits you in a number of ways can be difficult.
Often times we surround ourselves aroun
In the performing world we say that, “ You are always in the limelight both on and off the stage!” This means that someone is always watching you and the actions you take. Furthermore, the crowds reaction is based off of your performance on stage! As a performer you have the power to affect the audience in a number of ways. The same goes true for us as individuals on a daily basis. How we show up on stage aka “life,” determines how people respond and receive us. We are walkin
Doesn’t it just make sense that the more time you put into doing the things you love to do, the happier you will be? It’s a sad realization but most Americans do not allow time in their life to pursue the things that excite them. In fact, according to Harris Polls only one in three Americans feel happy! That means that only 33.3% of Americas population is living a life full of happiness. One of the biggest mistakes we make is not allowing time in our lives for the things that
I am so excited for next week as the California Women's Conference is finally here! It's two days of inspiration with thousands of women in attendance.
Now I know that you may or may not be thinking, "Why is she promoting another women's conference when Rise Up For You does their own?" "Isn't this competition?"
I hear this all the time! The truth is there is plenty of room for all of us including you! The work space regardless of what field it is, can accommodate all of
