    96: 3 Signs You’ve Outgrown Your Friendship

    Have you ever outgrown a friendship? Think about how many of your high school friends you still keep in contact with or if all your friends from college are still your friends now. 
    People grow at different rates, and our life transformations may not align with the friendship(s) we once had, but guess what? It’s completely normal! Outgrowing friendships that no longer serve us is a normal life experience. It doesn’t make you disloyal or a bad friend, and you shouldn’t feel guilty about ending an old friendship that no longer serves you. So, how do you know you’ve outgrown a friend?


    In this episode, I share 3 Signs You’ve Outgrown Your Friendship.

    95: 7 Affirmations & Intentions To Get You Through The Week

    It’s important to me that I keep a positive mindset especially during the most challenging moments in my life. We often find ourselves engaging in negative self talk and thinking about everything that could go wrong. I believe words have meanings and there is power in what we speak about ourselves and into our lives. 
    What if we spoke with more intention and replaced those negative thoughts with words that empower us?
    In today’s episode, I share 7 Affirmations & Intentions To Get You Through The Week.

    94: Not Feeling Motivated To Work Out? Try This

    94: Not Feeling Motivated To Work Out? Try This

    If you’ve been following me for a while, you know my struggles with weight loss. I’ve spent most of my life sliding up and down the scale from when I was growing up, college weight and then trying to lose weight after having my two kids. In fact, I started my @HealthyJenell page after giving birth to my daughter where I shared my post-baby weightloss journey.
    Through all my health and fitness up and downs, one of the most common questions I get asked is how do I stay motivated. As a wife, mom and entrepreneur, I know how difficult it can be finding time to exercise throughout the week. I’m here to tell you it’s not easy, but with some discipline and consistency, it IS possible.
    In this episode, I share the 4 ways I stay motivated to work out.

    92: From A T-Shirt To MultiMillion Dollar Business ft Kalilah Wright

    92: From A T-Shirt To MultiMillion Dollar Business ft Kalilah Wright

    Kalilah Wright is a designer and graduate architect. She started her first business at 12 years old when she created a “cool club” at school and charged kids a membership fee of $0.35 a week. Of course, at the time she had no idea that she would venture into being a businesswoman and entrepreneur.
    Kalilah is the founder of T-Shirt company “Mess in a Bottle” which allows you to say what you want without ever having to say anything at all. Mess in a Bottle is an expressive brand, and it allows an individual to be outspoken and vocal by wearing their message.
    In this episode, Kalilah and I discuss how she turned T-Shirts into a multimillion dollar business.
