Quit Playing and Get It Done

How many excuses can you come up with before you actually get work done? Excuses help pacify the fact that you aren’t producing. It’s time to stop making excuses for yourself and get the work done.

Just think of every excuse you make for yourself as a step further down the ladder of success. Who intentionally wants to take steps in the wrong direction? I know you don’t!

As a woman you have to accept responsibility and provide accountability for the things you do and don’t accomplish. Your main purpose as woman is to reproduce! That doesn’t change when it comes to the work world either. This is your time to reproduce, that is multiply. By multiplying you can increase in all areas of your life.

You bring things into existence with your creative abilities. That means you supply your life with the things you desire by making it happen. Why deny yourself that? I challenge you to declare right now that you shall not be denied because of laziness. Declare that you will stop playing and get what needs to get done, done!

Remember F.O.C.U.S.!! Follow one course until successful.

Three Ways to Achieve Success IMMEDIATELY

1. Define your own success.
When it comes to success I find it interesting that people are always Googling how to make it big or how to makes loads of money. The only way to be successful under your own terms is to define success for yourself. What does it means to be successful? Does it mean a new position? A new salary? A nice car or a house is a fancy neighborhood? You cannot allow others to define success for you.

Leadership Tips from Michelle Obama

I miss Michelle Obama. Every time she spoke she dropped knowledge to help us reflect our own way of thinking and actions! Here’s a look back to a few great tips from Michelle Obama.


“He believes when you work hard and you cross the door of opportunity, don’t slam it! Don’t close the door behind you! You REACH BACK and bring others up! @MichelleObama

1. Leadership is 100% about creating new leaders. If you are at the top and love the feeling of being above your subordinates then your motives for leadership are off. Effective leaders lead because they want to create change, influence others to take action, and work their way to a position to challenge the same in others. 

‎”Being President doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are.” @MichelleObama

2. Leadership is an internal expression of an inward ability. Leaders shouldn’t become someone “new” once they get into their position because leadership is not about position. Leadership is about the ability to influence change on any level. It reveals who you are because it should be who you are. 

The Grammys, Mistakes, and Being Unashamed

The Grammy's, Mistakes, and Being Unashamed

Tonight the Grammy’s was everything I LOVE. Music, dancing, laughter, makeup, and fashion. But as I was watching I felt this year was different. The tone was different. SO MANY MISTAKES WERE MADE. SO MANY FEELS. So many lessons in the little moments. Here are a few, maybe you caught them too.

I missed the beginning of the awards show but when I turned on my TV I see two guys start to unzip their pants and take them off! (Thanks while I’m sitting there with my kids…) As I was trying to figure out what was going on Twenty One Pilots begins to describe that years ago when they were watching the Grammy’s with their friends they realized they were sitting there in their underwear. They said to themselves that if they ever won a Grammy they would accept it in their underwear. Lesson: Anyone from anywhere can do anything. We are all becoming.  Don’t forget all that you’ve gone through to get to your next level.
