28. No Excuses, Get Your Feet Wet

You want change and you’re aware that change needs to happen, but fear gets in your way when you want to take action. Getting what you want means you need to move forward. We chat about the dialogue to use on a daily basis and giving yourself permission to not be fine and to be too tired. We are not an island and should not do everything ourselves. Ask for help to get to your destination faster. Figuring things out all by yourself takes longer, employ the assistance of others to get things...


27. Recipe to Create a Good Human Being

Parenting is more about the parent than the child. These 13 “things” are great guidelines for raising a child. From being able to show your child how to take action for themself to making your child the center of the...


26. “Just Say No”

Saying “no” is very hard, especially for people pleasers who don’t want to disappoint others. Women need to set boundaries and to say “no” to others. Saying “yes” can limit the accessibility to opportunities. Saying “yes” to everything says to others that your time is not valuable.

If you have...

We can’t adequately impress upon you the impact of positive thinking, or PMA, has on your work, your health, and your life. Seriously! There is a ton of research out there that supports this and reveals that positive thinking is about much more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude. Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile. So, we're diving in and teaching you how a positive mental attitude can...


24. Competition Schmompetition

Let's be honest, if you go out in public at all, you're probably going to get some criticism for the way you live your life and the choices you make. And for some reason, we tend to take other people's opinions to heart. We obsess, we change, we feel bad, and yes, we even judge back. But the truth is, other people's opinions don't pay your bills, they don't raise your kids, and they aren't there at 11pm at night to keep your house clean after you've had an insane day. So we're laying out our...

19. How to Kick Self-Doubt In The Teeth

There's a tendency to assume that successful, confident women/mothers/people never have any doubts-- that they are decisive about every choice, never have regrets and always know what to do.
