4 Days out from show

Yesterday I felt like I wanted to die. I didn’t ever want to compete again. Not sure why it sucked so much. Today is pretty rough too.  No amount of caffeine can get me through the day.   It’s hard to imagine life beyond Saturday.  It just seems...

3 Tips to Overcome Stage Anxiety

Even though Spring 2021 competition season is over, I thought I'd share some of my tips that help me, whether it's for fitness competitions or public speaking, etc.  Save for later when you need it.  Let me know if this was helpful for you!...

Confessions of a Pro Fitness Competitor

I do fitness competitions because I have a hard time staying accountable to myself.  Now that I’m FORTY 😱, I can compete with 40+ year olds, instead of the young gals who don’t have kids 😂.  This process involves overhauling my lazy lifestyle. This...

Falling From a High

“Mommy, did you cry when I was born?” Where did that question come from?  Is it because I cry at most of our family meetings?  Should I tell him the truth? Why wouldn’t I tell him the truth?  “No.  I didn’t cry when you were born.  (Feeling guilty...

My Journey – April 2012

My journey...April 2012 I was disgusted with myself. My son was almost 2. I was tired, sick, carb-overloaded. I did a detox and became vegetarian. June 2014 my daughter was 1.5 yrs old and there I was again, unhappy with my body. Dreading...

Tonight I breathe in peace

Great discussion tonight after a long day in clinic, on the road, open house, and delayed bedtimes. I know I'm not the only one rudely awakened to the adjustment of going back to school, being more adjustment than expected. What a shock to the...

Powerful people

Loved being surrounded by the power of this movement; all the lives it’s changing – physically and financially….and how much faster we can impact more people just by keeping things SUPER SIMPLE and connecting. What gets me more excited than...

Comparison mode has a way of creeping up

Comparison mode has a way of creeping up without me noticing, every so often.I wanted to recognize it so I can acknowledge it and move it aside....Although I thrive on Team for accountability, momentum and excitement in so many areas of my life,...

4 years ago today

July 31, 2018 4 years ago today, I made a seemingly small decision that would change me in ways I couldn’t even fathom at the time.  2014, I was still uncomfortable in my own skin, covering myself up at the beach.  After maternity leave, my husband...

Constant comparison

Constant comparison. Negative self talk. Thinking everyone else had it together while I was falling apart. Being my worst critic. Focusing on lack. Giving up on myself, my health, my happiness, my dreams since what I was doing wasn’t working....

My dad’s an acupuncturist. My mom works with him; she’s the bookkeeper and the social glue. They came to America for the opportunity, several decades ago. They have owned their own business for as long as I’ve known them. #SelfEmployed 

When I was about 11 yrs old, my dad got sick. Really sick. In the hospital-couldn’t-work-sick. My mom was scared. VERY scared. Without him working, the money STOPPED coming in. Two girls with college in the future, no income for an indefinite time, what am I going to do? (Wow, I’m getting stressed out just thinking about this….)#ResidualBills #PlanB

She found network marketing and worked her butt off. There were long days, even longer nights, faxing at all hours, conference calls, traveling, speaking engagements, etc. Was it worth it? #Dedicated#committeed #focused 

Result: she created enough income to completely renovate our home, put my sister and I through college, to name a few things. She’s impacted thousands of lives in the process. ❤️ As skilled as my dad is, his income could never afford all of that, nor the trips we went on as a family. #Impact#choices

Here’s to all the parents out there working their tails off to provide for their families. It’s an honorable thing to do. I’m now understanding the impact of Network Marketing as a profession and the opportunities it affords families. And I’m not talking about the tangible, flashy stuff either. I’m talking about the things that really matter; the memories, the personal growth lessons, the places people go, the people you meet, how you can give back, etc. It is by no means a perfect profession, nor is it for everyone, but it’s pretty incredible. #ChangingLives 

There are so many people who participate in this industry, more than who would like to admit, unfortunately. But how many other industries out there, where you need no degree, no resume, but a desire for more, where you can help your best of friends become wildly successful? It’s exciting to me, no matter what industry or what company they choose. I am truly grateful. I love the people who this industry is attracting to me.
