How Are You Speaking to Yourself?

HufPo.Text.Speaking

I used to speak to myself with such unkindness, most of the time not even realizing it or it’s impact.

Luckily, I no longer do and shared a bit of my story in my most recent Huffington Post blog.

I Dropped The Ball

Balls.text

It’s been a long time since I’ve shared.

As working women I know you can relate to juggling too many balls.  The feeling of just too much – that something has to give. My blog was a ball I chose to drop. 

I dropped it with a choice to be kind to myself. Full stop.

 

But now I’m back.

I have clarity and intention.

My mission is to be back in service to women just like us.

Women who want to:

  •        Thrive at work and in life but too often feel like we are failing at both.
  •         Do what we have been avoiding with increased confidence.
  •         Expand our networks in ways that add value to us and work within our schedule
  •         Connect with other like-minded women in relevant and productive ways
  •         Stop feeling like we are alone.
  •         Learn and leverage how others navigate similar scenarios

Sure, but why does it feel like such a challenge sometimes? 

Because this is life and our lives are full.  

And…it is the ONLY life we have to live.

What I now know is that the details around us are not going to change, just how we choose to navigate them can. 

But, we don’t know what we don’t know. 

Which leads me to my mission.  

My mission is to be an outlet for women, just like us. To plug into and to create the change we desire.  To leverage the experiences of other women in service of each other. I have some exciting new projects on the go that I CAN’T wait to share!

But in the meantime…

I just wrote a Huffington Post article titled: Is Status Quo Killing You? .

A great place to start is choosing to do things differently. To start taking inspired action. To get out of your own way, #GOOYOW, so you can live a life that brings you way more fun, joy, and success. 

Until the next time!

Best wishes, me.

3 Steps to Do What Scares You

Rock.text

Last week I presented a “How to Self-Promote Authentically, with Confidence” keynote to 250 people and that was big deal for me. I had convinced myself that my content was best delivered in more intimate settings.

When I accepted the invitation, from the Women’s Executive Network in Toronto, I assumed the group would be 30-50 people, 100 max.

Well I was wrong.

The week before the talk, I found out over 200 people had registered.

I was so scared, but I knew that quitting wasn’t an option.

Earlier today I posted “How to Do What Scares You” on the Huffington Post that I wanted to share with you.

I hope you enjoy the read!

 

 

How to Self-Promote: Even when you think you hate doing it.

When you think of self-promoting what words come to mind?

  • Cheesy
  • Sickening
  • Awkward
  • Desperate
  • Not me
  • Uncomfortable
  • Pushy, etc….

If I haven’t said yours, fill in the blank here…….

If your response is positive, that’s awesome, and feel free to stop reading here.

If it’s negative, you are not alone.

What Are You Waiting For?

WomanatLake.Text

Where has the time gone.

I last signed off with an idea of what I wanted my summer months to look and feel like.

It didn’t happen.

My summer and months to follow were rocked by Cancer.

I’m not complaining, it’s just our family’s truth.

Since then, my aunt passed away and my mom underwent a successful colon surgery.

All this to say, I am even more inspired and committed to getting out of my own way.

To do exactly what I encourage so many other women to do.

For me, it’s about an idea I have been thinking about for far too long.

Disrupting my status quo.

I know that so many of you too want something different, but a week, a month, a year goes by… and nothing’s changed.

Maybe for you it’s because:

  • A fear of failure?
  • A fear that if you change something, someone else will be sacrificed?
  • Your family or your life’s equilibrium will be rocked?
  • You are worried what people may think?
  • Something different?

Whatever it may be, our answers are excuses.

A reason to keep status quo.

To stay in our comfort zone.

It’s all about #GOOYOW. Choosing to Get Out of Your Own Way.

So….You up for a kick start?  A challenge?

If so, I’ve created one called 3 Days to Disrupt Your Status Quo: Drive your desired results at work and in life.

You can join HERE for free.

I’ve taken the challenge and disrupted my status quo.

I’m launching a new platform called Your Power Outlet.

It’s still a work in progress, but if I wait until it’s perfect, I may wait forever.

It’s where real women plug in to drive their desired change at work and in life.  Where you equip yourselves with tools that transform the habits that are not serving you and replacing them with ones that will.

It feels so good to take inspired action.

To stop thinking, wishing and hoping for something to be different.

It’s about taking one step at a time.

So…..what’s it going to be for you?

Not sure?

Take the Challenge.

3 Ways to Make Your Everyday Count

I used to get frustrated when the end of the week would roll around and I still hadn’t done what I said I wanted to do.  Even with the best of intentions, I just got too busy.

One week would flow into the next and nothing would have changed.

Life got in the way.
