Imposter syndrome is a really fascinating phenomenon and while most research I’ve read points it to be an individual issue, from my experience, it stems from being in environments where my accolades and abilities are questioned because of other people’s pre-existing biases. I did not always experience imposter syndrome but after spending 90% of my time in industries and arenas steeped in misogyny and patriarchal systems I find it very hard to accept my accolades and expertise for what they are: Absolutely great and relevant.

2020 is HERE and we're all trying to figure out our goals for the year and how we're going to crush them. Fitness, health, money, to do lists the length of our arms. I know that a lot of goal lists in general would read, "To have a better life." To most people this means more money, and more time, so we work more for more money to be able to take a little bit of time off for ourselves for the year, missing out on a lot more than we anticipated. Believe me. I know. I had been working 2 jobs for 2 years with a side hustle and I've missed out on a lot of opportunities and experiences. I quit my my part time job late 2018 because my side hustle gave me the FREEDOM and the MONEY to finally quit! It's allowed me to help pay off debt. I've now freed up time to do more things that will enrich my life. 2019 is ended on a high note and I am taking that momentum now into 2020. I am so in love with this opportunity that I've taken, that I want you to consider giving yourself this same gift…
Are you sick of all the other imitators? Don’t let the real one intimidate ya! When someone told me to follow DJ Khaled on Snapchat (DJKhaled305), I laughed and asked why I need to follow some rapper; I need enrichment, not sick flow. BOY, DID I STAND CORRECTED! (He’s not even a rapper HAHAHA.) DJ Khaled has become my unofficial life coach and favorite snapper...
As the world shifts into this age of online e commerce, people are building business’ from home and I’m seeing that more often than not, people throw in the towel all too quickly. We hear things like ‘the market is over saturated’, ‘nobody wants my stuff’, I could go on and on. The truth is, what these people aren’t realizing is: People don’t want things, they want solutions. They want experiences. They want to buy from YOU, not your company. I’ll tell you right now, every other woman in my town of 67,000 people sells products from my previous company. It's literally everywhere, and my little biz continues to grow EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH. Why? I have a Slight Edge...

When it comes to personal development we like to explore all avenues of learning. Podcasts are an amazing resource because you can basically listen to them anywhere.

Go for a walk and get some PD in through your ear buds. Getting ready in the morning?
