Don't just think about it, ask for it.

Jan 13, 2019

I love sharing strategies on how to ask for what you really want! It took me years to find my voice, self-worth, and ability to ask for what I want. I know I am not alone with the discomfort around asking for what you really want and standing in the nerve wrecking moment right before the answer comes back to you, praying it's a YES!, and trying to keep your composure for the possible No. What I...

I relate to these when I think about my own personal development journey and my own management of the different versions of myself throughout the day, week or month.

The Magic of Your Upbringing, Even If It Sucked

Jul 11, 2017

Personal and professional development go hand in hand, especially when you begin looking at the patterns that show up in both and where those began. Further, when we look at communication, in both business and personal settings, there is no doubt our upbringing plays a large role. This can be extremely helpful if we’ve had a healthy, functional upbringing, and downright devastating for...
