Say yes.

This never changes, no matter where you are in your journey or which path you’re on. You can choose to say yes or no to opportunities. And discerning between opportunities and distractions is not always easy! In fact, that decision making process is a skill that needs to be honed, a muscle that must be consistently worked. And there will …

I know sometimes, maybe most of the time, it can feel like this isn’t true. But, I promise you, it *is* true. Even if you’re currently working at a job you hate. Even if you’re trying to figure out how to get out of a bad relationship. Even if you’re barely rubbing two nickels together. Even if you’re working on …

Do You Believe In Yourself?

This one is HARD. Because often people who are *supposed* to love and support us unconditionally, like family, are some of the *least* supportive. The problem is that as we grow into adulthood, we also often maintain unhealthy, sometimes codependent relationships with our family when we really need to break free from that. Just because you were born into the …

How to earn/build CONFIDENCE: The next time you find yourself saying or thinking, “but I don’t know how to do that,” FIGURE IT OUT.

Some of you may know this, others may not, but I am exceptionally good at gaining weight. I cook delicious food, and I often over-work and over-stress myself in ways that make the balance of my life tip. And, so, it happens. But over the years (and facing down the big 4-0 in a couple of weeks), I’ve learned a …

Why I stopped drinking coffee (and what I drink instead)

A LOT of people have been asking why I stopped drinking coffee. I stopped drinking coffee in January when I started my tour for my newest book, The 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide. Why? Well, on an early tour stop, I bought cold brew, poured it, mixed it with my coconut milk in my hotel room, then took one sip …

Part of what I’m here (in the world) to do is to WAKE people up.
