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
How's your week going so far? Have you had the chance to get out there and meet some new faces and build new connections this week?
This is something I try to make a point of at least once or twice a week. Meeting new people and building relationships is key to creating an incredible and supportive tribe around you, not to mention the possibility of partnerships and collaborations professionally.
This whole idea of networking can be incredibly uncomfortable, especially w
For many years women have kept their head down and followed in line, rarely stepping outside of the box. Until recently many women have believed and tended to stereotypes put on us by society such as “You must be a stay at home mom,” “Women shouldn’t voice their opinion frequently,” and the old saying “Women are too emotional to be leaders.” It is now 2017 and women are making remarkable changes in society and in the work force. A recent study shows that more women now earn a
One thing I do every morning is make time to meditate and read. These two practices stimulate my mind and help ideas and creativity come to fruition. I recently just started reading this incredible book called "Return to Love" by Marianne Williamson. You may have read this book already but if you haven't it's a MUST READ! Marianne Williamson has always been a favorite of mine but for some reason I never read "Return to Love" until now. I have to share with you that this book
This summer flew by and now we are on our way to Fall. Before we know it, it’s going to be Christmas!!! With the days moving fast sometimes it can be difficult to focus and really use the day wisely. People always ask, “how do you get the day started,” and “do you have any tips to starting your day off on the right track?” This is a great question and suggestion for those who tend to feel sluggish or take hours to get their day going! Imagine if within minutes of waking up yo

It’s Time to Ditch That Chip on Your Shoulder! Excuse me for a quick minute, but I have to get this off of my chest! Ok I get it! You’ve been through a lot, in fact you may still be going through it! You may be struggling at work, losing steam in your relationship, suffering with loss or illness, having a hard time financially, the list goes on! However, when did it become ok to take it out on the world? In the past week I have seen multiple people who
Often times we convince ourselves that self love is selfish and something that should be put last or on the back burner! We all do it including myself at times. It’s important for us to remember that when we feel great and at our best, everyone else feels great as well. You and I are able to truly love others only when we truly love ourselves. I always tell my clients, “Fall in love with yourself first!” You will be a much happier person contributing to the world. Easier said
There’s so much heartbreak happening in the world right now as I’m sure you have seen on social and main stream media. It makes one wonder why and how? How do we begin to implement change in our world? The truth is it starts within you! It starts with loving yourself so that you can properly love others. You and I both know that this world is circular and what we create and build today in fact will come back around in the future. People aren’t born with hate in their hearts o
I woke up in a deep sweat the other night panicking about a huge project coming up for Rise Up For You. Instantly my mind went to a place of doubt, “Holy crap what have I done?” “Am I going to be able to make this work?” ” What if the project fails?” “There is a lot at risk and it’s an incredibly bold move, did I do the right thing?” All of these huge thoughts of self doubt came into my mind and created and overwhelming feeling of stress and fear. It took me a few minutes bef
