Hey Superstars!

I’m giddy with excitement to announce the Life Bonds Podcast with Dr. Melanie Ross Mills is sponsoring 5 seats to the Rock The Camera || Ladyboss Only Workshop on April 29th. How cool is that? Can you hear me squealing? So, if finances were preventing you from stepping out and signing up– you no longer have that excuse, sister. We will select 1 winner each week leading up to the workshop!

BUT WAIT! Each winner will also receive a 30 minute phone consultation with Dr. Mel to explore any fear-based thinking patterns, methods to getting unstuck and will offer an encouraging word to get you ready for the workshop. How generous is that?!?  Entry details below.

LIFE BONDS PODCAST offers insight and strategies on life topics worth contemplating.

If you’re thinking about it, it’s worth discussing!

Dating. Patience. Joy. Parenting. Anger. Codependence. Postpartum. Jealousy. Friendship. Depression. Managing Success. Forgiveness. Boundaries. Leadership. Disappointment. Fear. Compromise. Insecurity. Pride. Peace. Self-Control. Bonding. Servanthood. Kindness. Wisdom. Playfulness. Gratitude. Honesty. Protection. Emotional Intelligence. Respecting Yourself and Others. Guilt & Shame. Positivity. Significance. Growth. Discernment.

Even if you are not interested in attending the workshop, I highly, highly, highly, highly recommend you subscribe to this podcast. Over the 3 years I have lived in DFW, Dr. Mel’s insight has continued to give me hope and steer me in the right direction.  Also, make sure to browse her website for fun videos and nuggets of wisdom.

 

Here’s a bit about the workshop + the topics covered:

Do you freeze up in front of the camera?

Could your business benefit from sharing a product or message on Facebook Live?

Do you need more confidence speaking in front of a group?

  • Delivery to camera with clarity + authenticity
  • Image: what to wear on camera + best makeup
  • Confidence building tips
  • Media prep (for when The Today Show calls)
  • Voice projection + simple speaking tips
  • Power of the smile (we get nervous and forget it’s the magic tool)
  • YouTube basics (how to open and close a video)
  • Facebook Live + Instagram video basics
  • Branding basics

Space is limited. We want to keep this first women only workshop small and intimate!

GirlPower! 

I’m so excited to host my 1st workshop for ladies only! After doing these workshops over the past 3 years, I have found that they are filled with like-minded women (and only a few men) who have a deep sense of purpose and desire to live with more confidence. With the ever changing world of social media, everyone needs to sharpen their on-camera skills. It’s a powerful tool to share your message, brand, products and business. I look forward to pulling out your greatness and helping you soar!

P.S. Even if finances aren’t the issue, please DO NOT allow fear to prevent you from stepping out and signing up. I realize speaking in front of a crowd or on-camera can be one of the most stressful things in the world (I still get nervous at times!), but with a few effective tools and lots of practice ANYONE can become a dynamic, inspiring and effective speaker!

P.S.S. Did you enter yet? What are you waiting for? 

Green Protein Smoothie Update

 

Hey Gorgeous Girl!

Curious, what did you think of my recent lifestyle series?

Have you implemented anything I shared?

What about the green protein smoothie?

Adding this to my morning routine was truly life changing. As I mentioned in the video, I am constantly trying different protein powders in search of the best fit for my taste buds and nutritional needs.

HELLO VEGA!

Since the video, many of you have messaged about protein powders. Over the past month, I keep going back to the Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake because it has really clean ingredients, it tastes great and blends smoothly (not chalky!). I love the chocolate flavor. I will admit the Vanilla Chai flavor is, well, just skip it. Trust me. All the Vega products are available on Amazon and it’s at most groceries stores even Target.

Here’s the deets:

  • All-in-one plant-based protein powder made from real, whole food ingredients
  • 20g of premium, plant based protein from pea, hemp, SaviSeed, and flax for a complete amino acid profile
  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals from broccoli, kale, spirulina, strawberries, and more
  • 25% daily fiber, 1.5 Grams omega-3s, probiotics, and antioxidants
  • Non-Gmo project verified, vegan certified, low-glycemic, gluten-free, and made without dairy or soy ingredients

 

 

Try it and let me know what you think!
If you have added the green smoothie to your AM routine, leave a comment and let me know about the benefits you are experiencing!

WHO YOU ARE: A Message To All Women [Video]

Happy FriYAY!

All week, I have stumbled upon blessing after blessing. It’s like God’s little winks letting us know we are on the right track. I just love how He does that! I call it living in “flow”.  This morning someone sent me this AHHHHH-mazing video and of course, I had to share it with all of you. As a confidence builder, affirmation addict (hence, #Tiffirmations) and advocate for empowering women to live their most authentic life– this video gave me chills, brought tears to my eyes and fueled me up for the day ahead. Please do yourself a favor and watch it, but not only watch it allow the message to sink down into your spirit.

P.S. Will I see you at Stix & Brix on March 25th? I hope so! There’s still a few tickets available HERE!

#MondayMotivation || To Raise Brave Girls, Encourage Adventure

Gutsy girls skateboard, climb trees, clamber around, fall down, scrape their knees, get right back up — and grow up to be BRAVE WOMEN.  Learn how to spark a little productive risk-taking and raise confident girls with stories and advice from firefighter, paraglider and all-around adventurer Caroline Paul.

If you are raising daughters, mentoring young girls or need to be a braver woman… WATCH THIS: 

 

I just spent the most magical two weeks in California (another blog to come later) and my younger sister, Natalie and I sat on the beach one gorgeous evening reminiscing about our tomboy upbringing. Can I just tell you how grateful I am that our parents embraced ALL the multifaceted sides of our personalities?!? We were pretty, but brave little tomboys who had to wear shorts underneath our dresses on Sunday because we would not let a dress stop us from the chance to climb the monkey bars or race that little boy across the church parking lot.

One day we wanted to…

go muddin’ in the ditches,

learn piano the next,

climb trees after that,

race bicycles up and down the street,

play basketball,

try out for cheerleader,

perform all the songs to Grease for the family,

go on mission trips,

summer camp,

swim in the horse trough,

build a Barbie city that covered my entire bedroom floor,

my bad New Waver phase and Flock of Seagulls haircut, (Lawdy, Lawd!!)

beauty pageants, (then with my Belinda Carlisle haircut)

and on and on and on.

Back then there were no screens to consume our time except for the television screen. We didn’t care much about TV except for watching reruns of Happy Days, Three’s Company, and Good Times. Oh wait, I did love American Bandstand on Saturday mornings. Anyone else?  We loved playing outside! We loved getting sweaty! We loved sports! We truly thought we could do everything the boys did. Although, I did hate it when my dad made us help with the yard work! But, even that toughen us up and taught us not be afraid to use our hands and get a bit dirty. I never realized- until I saw the above TED Talk by Caroline Paul this morning- that all of that freedom to express our “gutsiness” would make such a huge difference in our life as women.

Thank you mom and dad for allowing us to be little adventurous explorers.

Natalie went all over the world as a teenager doing mission work and almost won Survivor: Micronesia in 2008. Not as adventurous, but still gutsy- I began modeling internationally at 17. I climbed down a Bavarian alp and rode a mountain bike from Germany to Austria. (Talk about an achy bootie…think about doing spin class for 8 hours! OUCH!) Flew on an Ultralight, which is basically a go cart with flimsy canvas wings, in Mexico. Slept in a rat infested cabin in Southern Sudan. Drove a Lamborghini up the PCH and got it to 160 MPH. Yeehaw! I should have been Danica Patrick. Just sayin’. Snorkeled off the coast of Africa in the Seychelle Islands and the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Belize. Sang karaoke in Rappongi, the nightlight district of Tokyo. Lived in Milan, Italy for a Summer and rode a 10-speed to all my castings so I could see the city instead of being underground in the subway. Flown in a helicopter over the Great Ocean Road. Heck, moving to LA where I knew no one, took guts and independence.  Seriously, driving around LA the past 2 weeks is gutsy. It’s like a bunch of ants texting while their trying to drive. Now I remember why my adrenal glands were shot from living there. Whew! #RoadRageOnCrack

Has life dulled your gutsiness? Life can make us fearful. I get it. Life can make us whimpy. I get it. Especially, the world we’re living in today, but SCREW THAT! Today, more than ever, we need to raise brave girls and be examples of brave women for them. The conversation with my sister sitting on the beach last week, then stumbling across this TED Talk was no coincidence. I’m here to encourage you to remember how brave you are. I love the ripple effect we can cause for good.

  • Take a moment to reminisce on all the gutsy things you’ve done throughout your life. This will build confidence.
  • If you chickened out on many things you wished you had done, start a list.
  • Get busy being braver than ever and get out there. Check off the list. I want to hear about it!

We become more brave by exercising our bravery. I don’t think I’ve ever made a list of all the cool and somewhat crazy things I’ve done in my life. My confidence and bravery is officially built up and sharpened. Never let anyone or anything, especially yourself, dull your gutsy, girlfriend. 

 

Love to hear your thoughts or a specific gutsy moment you had. 

Share. Comment. Like. You know the drill.
