For my veteran teachers or my teachers who are labeled as “strong”, don’t forget it’s okay for you to advocate for support too. Oftentimes the support goes to who is seemingly is most need of it but you are deserving of support/coaching/help too.
Yes, sometimes we are difficult to coach (because “everything is good” or in comparison to your colleagues it’s great). What has helped me in the past is outlining the areas that I would like to grow and sharing that with my leadership team to help the process.
Speaking of help. Sometimes the help we need to grow is down the hall, sometimes it’s someone you don’t care for or sometimes it’s from a complete stranger.

This is my year. Oh and so is 2019.
Have you ever had one of those days where if someone just breathes and you want to scream?! Home girl had one today! So instead of being a horrible bitch to people who certainly didn’t deserve it! I took myself to the cinema 10 miles away 🤣 just to make sure I didn’t see someone I know. I knew no one could solve my mood but me! It’s hard work I should’ve been in the gym lifting weights, but my trapped nerve is worse given me blurred vision. And hey 3 weeks without working out properly and cabin fever in the house I think it just got to me. So even though it made me feel uncomfortable going to the cinema alone in wales I went. Even though it gave me anxiety waiting to go into the cinema I went. I had my beats so I would listen to my life coach stating, “The primitive brain will tell you no don’t go outside let’s Netflix. We don’t need to change the world stay here where it’s safe”. She never ever fails to put a smile on my face, make me feel at ease or just go do the shit I don’t want to do to make me feel better. I did feel so much better as well! I cried twice during Mamma Mia 2 🤣 and then giggled at @jackblack
in The house with clocks in the walls. It was exactly what I needed! No one is coming to save you! You have to save yourself each and every day! I’m still wearing the gym outfit I planned to wear to the gym and my new gymshark top underneath... I’m stubborn like that 🤣. I’d wear a pink wig if it made me feel better. As long as it brings a smile to your face do it!
A quiet, empty airport lounge with endless beverages and free WiFi feels kind of dreamy right now. ☁️ 🌈🌟 I just got done talking to attendees of the #evaluatorsummit
here in DC, all about the power of storytelling using your financials. It’s a topic that I get excited about, BUT I get even more jazzed when other people are engaged and ask great questions. 🤗👋🏻 I never would’ve guessed a year ago that I’d actually grow to LOVE speaking engagements and actively seek them out. Networking, on the other hand...😐🍸
Of all the skills you can teach your kids, teach them perseverance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A’s in school demonstrate mastery of memory. Memorizing facts and formulas won’t equip them for long term success in the real world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Perseverance surpasses knowledge. Perseverance will collect the necessary knowledge for success, but knowledge does not naturally lead to perseverance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Model success to them by example; keeping at it until you figure it out, until you win, until you complete the project powerfully. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Welcome the obstacles; show them they are a part of the path. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So demonstrate to your kids your DAILY PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE. Push through unaffected, incrementally moving toward the goal!
Do scary shit sometimes.
My family thought I was crazy. Looking back - I can agree that it was probably a pretty crazy thing to do.
I moved to Egypt for 5 months. I didn’t live with expats or in an area that was Westernized. I lived among locals where English was basically non-existent.
My world was turned completely upside down. Things I thought were right, weren’t. What was considered polite or rude was different than I’d been taught my entire life.
I had thrown myself into a world that unlike anything I’d ever experienced.
Was it the best decision to make at age 26 years old? Probably not.
Did I learn a plethora of life lessons and grow as a person? Absolutely.
Doing something as scary as moving across the world with no family, friends, or handle of the language completely changed my perspective on life.
Being a business owner means consistently putting yourself in uncomfortable situations where the outcome is unknown or fuzzy at best.
Learning to make decisions quickly and trusting your instincts while also using your logic are essential in being successful. Decisions we make won’t always be the right one or the best one, but knowing how to process and handle our decisions will in turn allow us to consistently make better decisions in the future.
Learn the lessons needed and move on.
I was absolutely scared shitless a good portion of the time I was there, but I wouldn’t really change it. I look at hardships I’m faced in my personal life and in my business and know that I can get through.
Doing scary shit builds your confidence and allows you to see what you’re capable of.
So, once in a while, do something scary.

How are you carrying yourself throughout your day? Are you standing tall? Are you smiling at strangers? Or are you putting your head down to avoid eye contact at all costs?
CONFIDENCE... it comes in many forms. And you know what the best part is? Confidence is something that is learned. We can all have it, if we put in the work! And I’m not interested in the BS fake smiles and the chip on your shoulder kind of confidence. I’m talking about deep inner beauty. The kind that is so powerful, when some who possesses it walks into a room, EVERYONE can feel it. ✨ The kind when you walk away after a conversation with them, you immediately feel better...and you feel empowered.

and start telling that woman she is worth it, she is capable of amazing things, and she is unstoppable! Tag a friend that always makes you feel better after you see her! 💜#babesempoweringbabes
It’s hard not to dwell on the fact that I’ve been putting harmful products on my skin for many years. 😡 I still have a long way to go but I am happy that certain changes have happened. My mentor @_sea.la_
made a post on her insta story that stuck with me. We try to make so many healthy choices every day with our food intake. There are so many daily choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner to be healthy...and it’s so easy to slip and go to 🌮 🛎 🤦🏻♀️. We’ve all been there! 🙋🏻♀️If you switch one personal care product then you will be making that healthy choice everyday without having to think about it! How long does your foundation last? If you switch to a safer foundation, every time you put that foundation on you are making a healthy choice! Make the change! Join the movement.
Who doesn’t want longer fuller lashes, that are all your OWN! One of my favorite products! Why not try it today?! 👀👍🏻
Welcome Fall!!! This is my daughter’s absolute favorite season it could be because her birthday is next month. I do love the fall weather but it is always a hard season for me with the time change and less daylight but knowing this and doing more outside during the daylight really helps! So if fall is tough for you figure out why and take action to make it easier on you. Sending lots of love for the first day of fall!!
“I am such an autumn person. Give me a quiet, cosy spot with a simple view of gorgeous trees with colourful leaves on a September day, fuzzy socks, a warm drink, and a good book and I will be in all my glory.” – McKenna Kaelin
Happy first day of autumn!
I love summer, don’t get me wrong, but really I’m an autumn kind of gal (the clue is in the hair colour!). I’m so excited for crunchy golden leaves, pumpkins, misty mornings, cosy nights in, hot chocolates, chunky knit jumpers, scarves, cinnamon, the smell of home baking, big mugs of tea, candles, getting comfortable with a great book, ankle boots, a good coat, burgundy, embers, my Lion Dog blending in to her amber and auburn surroundings, butternut squash, snuggling under blankets….
Did I forget anything?
What do you love most about autumn? I’d love for you to let me know in the comments below!

Day 128 - unfortunately the disappointment have kicked in... a lot. It’s extremely sad for me to not be hitting the gym! The gym is what I love and being left with less endorphins of course I’m not as chipper as I usually am. It’s hard to concerntrate with pins & needles in my face, but I’m more proud I decided to not push through 🤣. Short term sacrifice for long term gain. Please if you have an injury listen to your body on this one and not your mind 🤣 #consultantvlog

This is a brief summary of the highs over the passed year. The travel & work trips. It’s not everyone living out of a suitcase, but that certainly isn’t a problem for me 🤣. Going to new places is what I live for. Working out is what I live for. Meaning I love to challenge myself! I want to see what I’m made of both mentally and physically! None of this was EVER given to me! My parents never took me abroad on holidays they couldn’t afford it. However, they gave me the support I needed to be the woman I am today and now I paid for them to go abroad. It’s easy to look at someone’s life and create your own opinions. Aka your own excuses why you aren’t living your own next life. Pull you head out of your ass! Cut your excuses and put in the work. If you want more then you better be willing to sacrifice more! If not then hold your bitterness about the work you didn’t put in for the places you’ll never see or the body you’ll never have. My job is what you would call a grown up job... it’s damn stressful, but has amazing perks! It’s not 9-5 so to go gym I wake up 4am. None of it is easy, BUT it is all worth it 🙌🏻 #travelvlogger #fitnessvlogger
