Heath and I have so much in common! We have a serious southern drawl, we both adore his wife Jenny and we believe humans have the ability to overcome anything.

Hey Hey Love!
How are you handling the time change and cooler weather? I admit, I’m not a fan of the cold or the rain. Wahhhhh! Probably from all those years living in sunny LA with 70 degree weather year round except for that darn June gloom. One way I lift my spirit on those dreary days is to pop some color in my outfit. Of course, if you follow me on Instagram you know I’m obsessed with a touch of red at the moment. Red is the hottest color of the season and happens to be one of my favorite colors. My first little sports car was vibrant lipstick red!
Plaid wrap mini-skirt by KERRently for Privilege
I decided to pop some color up top and add a pop of plaid on bottom. Loving this wrap skirt by local Dallas superstar influencer, Courtney Kerr and her collaboration with Privilege! This will be a staple go-to in my wardrobe forever. Congrats girl!

There is nothing that lights me up more than seeing women step out of their comfort zone and use their ladyballs! This past weekend I hosted another ladyboss only on-camera workshop and am still on a happy high. Like every woman, each of the beauties in the photo above has an amazing story and I was honored to experience their vulnerability, heart, humor, wisdom, gifts and talents.
Doing something that scares you is what the true definition of courage is. When you push past the fear and do it anyway, you expand yourself and your abilities. When we shrink back, we stay small. Period. After coaching and hosting workshops since moving to Dallas, I see women revert to their small stance of shoulders rolled forward and hands clenched in front of them. I teach my clients to strike a power pose before any event, speaking engagement or on-camera appearance. Women transform right before my eyes with this exercise!
My challenge and motivation for this week is to be aware of situations that make you want to shrink. Stop, acknowledge it and immediately change up your physicality by doing the Wonder Woman pose and saying positive affirmations over yourself. (I get it.. some of you just can’t seem to wrap your brain around affirmations or think it’s silly, but I promise you- the way you speak to yourself is crucial. I would NOT be where I am today without power words and affirmations!!) Just try it. What could it hurt.
- Take a long deep breath.
- Get grounded and create a wide stance with your legs.
- Pull your shoulders back.
- Hands on hips.
Affirm to yourself that you are capable, strong and courageous. Get a powerful list of “I Am’s”. I am a Warrior Princess! (Who was that.. Zena?) I am a badass! I am intelligent, talented and beautiful! I am a world changer! I am ________________! Leave a comment and fill in the blank.
For some of my clients, doing something fun like flipping their hair, dancing, doing jumping jacks helps them. Whatever it is to shake it up to get out of your head!
Special shout out + thanks to the fabulous Whitney Kutch (stunning blonde making the peace sign) for her help in making this day a total success. Whit- I appreciate your crazy beautiful self, your generous heart to serve and uplift everyone around you! Love you!
Grab that imaginary cape and go slay this week.

HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF TODAY?
HOW DO YOU ENVISION YOUR FUTURE SELF?
DO YOU EVEN HAVE THAT VISION?
One of the 1st topics we tackle when I work with women -once they are ready to hire me and be more intentional about their growth- is to get clear on the vision for their life and the woman they want to become. When I hit rock bottom and started turning my life around, I took some time to craft a personal mission statement. This is a powerful exercise to help you to cut through the static, get your eyes off of what everyone else is doing and get focused on your purpose/mission/destiny.
As a woman thinketh, so is she.
(Really pause for a moment and ponder that. Whatever and whoever you think you are… you will be. Check out this great video by Oprah!)
Nothing lights me up more that seeing a woman finally decide she’s sick + tired of shrinking back and is ready to be her most unapologetically fabulous self. She has felt paralyzed as if her stilettos were stuck in cement and is finally fed up with marinating in her junk. There is nothing more powerful that a woman who has made up her damn mind!
Where are you looking today?
Stop trying to emulate (which is a fancy term for copy) someone else’s vision. I get it, it’s easy to become distracted in our world of perfectly photoshopped Instagram grids. Everyone else’s vision is smack in our face 24/7 and being shoved down our throat. You have the choice what you take a bite of and ingest. We can celebrate someone else’s vision and purpose instead of trying to copy them. You were given your own set of awesome, badass, unique gifts and so was that other gal. Get your own vision, put blinders on, cut the crap and go after it with all your gumption, all your gut, all your grit.
VISION: as the act or power of imagination; mode of seeing or conceiving (love that.. like being pregnant/expectant); unusual discernment or foresight.
FORESIGHT: the ability to predict or the action of predicting what will happen or be needed in the future.
Oh, and remember to breathe and have fun for cryin’ out loud.
Enjoy this process and do what YOU love!
Big thanks to @sarahkatmitch for the fun pics!

Happy Sunday Sista!
This Instagram story has struck a chord and caused some panties to get in a wad so I wanted to share it here.
I am all about igniting change so here ya go.
In my robe, no makeup with morning crusties in my eyes so no judgement, k.
I’ve had so many women comment and message me that they accept the challenge and admit they are guilty of this.
What about you?
