The way I see it, confident people are the people who are willing to be vulnerable. Insecurity lies in safety, confidence lies in risk. Confident people are okay with opening themselves up to things like rejection or criticism or not getting the approval of other people, even letting people down. Confident people […]
If you want to feel more confident about your body, it starts with understanding why you’re not already there. Ignoring your feelings, pretending like your insecurities aren’t there, that’s not helping you get anywhere. In order to become the best version of yourself, you have to accept all your flaws. This doesn’t […]
“I just don’t know how to SAY that” They admit, usually with a nervous laugh. When I coach creatives on how to write great copy for their brand, that phrase is thrown around on every call. I get amused by it, because they already said what they think they “can’t say” They just need to […]
When I felt insecure about my acne, I hid. I hid behind makeup, I stayed home, hell sometimes I slept just so I didn’t have to be aware of how much I hated the way my skin looked and felt. It’s our natural tendency. After fighting for so long, we favor flight mode. I was […]

Suffice it to say, after I left my abusive relationship, I don’t know what I was – but I definitely wasn’t enough. Wasn’t enough for the guy at my office to […]
Each time Taylor Swift releases a music video, she shows us a new side of the woman she’s becoming. There are hidden messages only her die hard fans will pick up on, there’s something for people to absolutely hate, and essentially she’s a genius at keeping the spotlight on her work. Her release of “Delicate” […]
