    #47 Why I Believe I Can Sell Anything and So Can You

    As an artist and educator, sometimes selling feels weird. But as an entrepreneur who is working to build a business, it is my job to sell. If I'm not selling, I'm not in business. Luckily, over the past few years, I've come to believe that I can sell anything. And guess what? I believe that if I can do sell anything, you can too. Entrepreneurs and hustlers, this one's for you!

    #46 Sometimes Showing Up Is Enough

    In this short episode, I'm discussing why we should honor the one's commitment to showing up in different places more often than we do. Sometimes, the completion of the act itself, not the feeling of happiness we expect to feel after taking the action, is what we should celebrate. Want to get in touch?

Evolution!

I marvel at the courage and confidence from which this message springs! I love hearing women bellow out their strengths ! Being strong does not mean we compromise our morals and kindness and positivity but it merely means at our core we recognize WE are the masters of our own destiny and we take back the power from our critics. ! Press on! There are thousands of women who support you! It begins with me!
