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
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
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
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
Are you running your own business right now, preparing to launch something, or thinking about building something of your own? I know you know this but there are a number of start-ups and small businesses out there that are barely making it off the ground. Not because they don’t have the skill or the talent to create a booming business but because of one thing and only one thing! The confidence to commit! You see today as a society we are sold the final product, the gold, the
I have to admit, it's great to be back in action and moving and grooving with Rise Up For You, coaching, and all of the other fun things life is throwing my way. I know it's been awhile since you've heard from me, but I needed to take a break! AND THAT'S OK! I, just like you, had my moments of beating myself up mentally because of the lack of movement I have had the past two months. However, it was much needed. As women sometimes we feel like we have to carry everything on ou
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
It feels like just yesterday I was running around with my siblings and parents at the park. Enjoying a nice barbecue, playing soccer with friends and family, and laughing non-stop at the smallest things. We often think that those moments together will last a lifetime. For many of us we are so busy with work and life in general that we miss out on all of the beautiful moments as we get older. Many of us are guilty of taking for granted every moment we have with our kids, paren
