Real Talk……..Beauty Doesn’t Equate To Confidence!

We live in a culture where beauty is prized. Media screams at us from every angle, beauty products line the shelves, and we envy those who embody the beauty we desire. We’re told if we’re beautiful we’ll automatically feel confident. We can’t deny the power of external beauty interventions and how it can make us feel good, but lets spare some time to consider how powerful the impact is on us when we feel we are beautiful inside as well? This is incredibly more powerful than you realize! I...

Phenomenal Woman Ep:030 - Dr. Rosina Wiltshire - Focus On Your Goal, Not The Detractors

The drive for gender equality is well documented and publicised in Euope and the US but we hear very little about the battle for gender equality in the Caribbean.

Real Talk……..What’s Your USP - Unique SELF Proposition?!

Do you know your USP? What makes you unique, understand your self-worth, your self-value, what you bring to the table? Not something we often recognize or acknowledge how special we are and the value that we bring to relationships, jobs or our community. Valuing or understanding your USP is what protects us in bad relationships, guides good decision making, so its pretty useful to know. Most of what makes you unique is right here, right now. You just have to take time to appreciate and...

If you continously wear the “S” on your chest, then this is for you. It’s ok to live life to its fullest, want to be the best and face challenges head on. However, it’s a huge balancing act holding down multiple fronts and sometimes you need to tell yourself that it’s ok to “de-cape” yourself!

Real Talk……..Stop Waiting To Be Rescued

Are you waiting for your symbolic liberator/rescuer/a sign to say its ok, to make you happy? It’s a sign that you may be prepared to hand over your personal power and responsibility and let someone else take control, tell you what to do (and probably do it for you!) Do you feel like someone is always standing in the way of your best future, someone we expected something from who didn’t come through. And you spend all our time waiting for someone or something to make it happen. You might be...

Real Talk……..You Have The Confidence To Say No

There may have been times you’ve been asked to work over or change your day off, been given last minute requests to make changes to a piece of work or you just generally don’t want to do what’s been asked of you. As women we have many demands/situations where our time and attention is demanded, often leaving very little time for own sanity and precious me time. As I’m writing this I’m realizing that there are numerous areas where you may want to say no but just haven’t felt confident to do...

Real Talk……..Overconfidence

Recently a friend sent me a BBC headline Alexandra Burke: ”UK has ‘massive problem’ with confident women” with the question posed - Do you think female stars are forced to play down their own success to seem “likeable”? This week I discuss the concept of what I believe to be the myth of overconfidence - I see it more of a double bind scenario where we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t. We should be able to own our acheivements and not play small to make others feel comfortable...

Real Talk……..Getting Unstuck!

At some point in our lives we’ll feel stuck, that uneasy feeling in the pit of our stomachs, the dull persistent sensation of the unknown running through our heads and the inner dialogue of “What is my purpose?”, “What am I doing with my life?”, “Where am I going”, “When is this going to change? This often happens when we stop listening to our authentic selves and get sidetracked by life. So this week we’ll look at some quick tips we can adopt when we feel a little stuckness coming on!
