Do you ever think or feel that you’re not enough?
This thinking/feeling pattern can be tough to identify. It starts in childhood and becomes so ingrained you hardly notice.
But here’s how you KNOW it’s operating under the surface:
- You work yourself to the bone but never receive the validation, promotion or financial compensation you seek.
- Fear stops you from using your voice to advocate for yourself.
- Your shaky boundaries allow your boss and co-workers to take advantage of your work ethic.
- You burn out and end up with physical symptoms or chronic illness.

Does age matter in the workplace?
I’m just gonna come out and say it: gray hair doesn’t make you obsolete.
There’s a lot of noise out there about career opportunities diminishing with one’s fading eyesight. Even if this is a perception that’s shared by a lot of people you know, it’s just that: a perception.
You see, your age is never the issue.
But what about your age and your work attitude?
The issue is your mindset and the way you understand success! Too many people are walking around hypnotized by what everyone else is telling them to do or be. Don’t allow it!
With all the chaos going on, are you worried about your career and livelihood?
In this video, I share how you can still get ahead and make your career dreams come true. Even in the midst of global change!Deep down, you may be scared that your financial and working life will never be the same again — even if you weren’t in love with your job to begin with.
This is the first time in human history that 7 billion people have cooperated. The news makes it look like we’re all at odds with each other. Don’t be fooled: there is more love, more inclusiveness, and more connection than ever.
Your parents’ advice was wrong — is living by their “rules” holding you back?
Based on our Facebook poll, aside from those who stated they didn’t receive any career-related advice growing up, the most frequently heard advice that respondents reported receiving from their parents was, “you should become a: (fill in the blank), despite the fact that you have no interest in it.”
You need to understand how your family is still affecting your day-to-day life!!
Are your parents holding back your performance, income level, your power?
We all love our parents. While their recommendations come from a place of love (sometimes) and asking their point of view may be helpful,
Are your traumas controlling your career — or are you?
At some point in your career, you are likely to experience trauma. Perhaps it’s a negative work culture, colleagues that don’t like you, feeling overworked and underpaid, or uncertainty with how to manage up and level up. These can all leave you feeling stuck and fearful.
Aside from making you feel lousy, these feelings deaden your soul and keep you from being the best that you can be. Your trauma begins to take hold of your career. You’re unable to attract the right level of role, so your contribution is less than what it could be, and your earning power is much less.
Are you avoiding essential conversations?
According to a recent Braverly study, “70% of employees are avoiding difficult conversations…” Also, a 2017 survey by Quantum Workplace and Fierce Conversations “found that 53 percent of employees are handling toxic situations by ignoring them.” This results in a variety of issues —employees playing small, missed opportunities, and lost revenue, to name a few.
Negotiating is another commonly avoided career-related discussion. Only 1 in 3 women negotiated for a higher salary when accepting a new job. The reality is that this can cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars throughout their careers!
Do you know which difficult conversations you need to have NOW?
Are you making the same mistakes over and over again?
It’s quite common. When we’re under stress, we tend to make the same decisions. This is due to the habits formed and emotions we had at a very young age. In other words, it’s comfortable and easy. Our feeling brain kicks in, and we let it take control.

Your future is now! Don’t wait for the “perfect time” to make a change.
My team and I have spoken to thousands of women who are repeating the same behavior over and over.
Do you understand your emotions? Do they control you at times?
Coach Amy and I talk about the ways you can notice what you are feeling and why you are feeling it. You step into your power when you understand and manage your emotions! Your emotions don’t control you, YOU are the creator of your reality!
I am excited to kick off the week with a wonderful conversation with a fabulous educator, Cathy Beals, EdD. Cathy came to work with me and my team because she was experiencing the problems many women have:
Hitting the same roadblocks
Not contributing at the level I know I can
Unsure how to change this
Desiring a better life
After all, with a high school daughter and husband at home, she knew she wasn’t making her life the best for them either. Listen in to hear how Cathy turned it around and is now bringing her soul to work!
Lean into her story — It could be yours!
In a constant state of stress, the brain doesn’t work well and the body gets run down. We have to keep from getting run down…especially now!
Wash hands, stay hydrated (with water my friends) and get your rest. It’s time to POWER your week for success!
Tough times call for staying on what drives your family and future – your work…so, to keep your career train rolling — let’s get out of stress and mayhem and into being a Kick Ass human!
The way to change from stress to kick ass is to change your focus. Let’s get your emotions and mind focused on your days — something other than quarantines!
