Researchers tell us that human beings think about 60,000 thoughts a day, and about 80% of them are “negative”. That means almost 40,000 negative thoughts per day are dripping through your system — your mind, your body, your emotions, and your spiritual self. Most of those thoughts are judging thoughts.Read More
Judgment is very stealthy. It actually seems to be in the air we breathe and the water we drink.

These questions probably often play in the back of your mind: “Can I buy a new pair of shoes?” “Can I afford a bigger home?” “Can I take a day off and not have my business or my family suffer?” “When do I get to take a REAL vacation?” Are you someone who wears shoes and clothes past their prime or lives in a place “that will do” or never takes a break to refresh and renew yourself?Read More
Last week I wrote about my realization of the many years spent trying to be “not me”. Trying to fit in, to do it “right”, to be approved of and included. A friend responded so generously with, “I love you being you.” Isn’t that a great message to receive? For sure, we women are encouraged, directed, and even programmed to be “not ourselves”.

Today, I want to talk to you about one habit that I see that handicaps people’s success. And in particular, women entrepreneurs’ success. And what is a habit? A habit is a repeated practice. And because it’s repeated, it sometimes will go unconscious—and we don’t even think about it. Like, driving to a familiar location, you probably don’t have to think about it very much. But these habits can get in the way of our success. And so, I want to talk to you about it—and what you can do about it to begin to turn it around.Read More
I certainly hope so! I hope you march to your own drummer, make up your own rules, glory in your full creativity, and are richly rewarded for it! But that’s not likely the case. I imagine that you probably cover up your weirdness so that you can fit in, be accepted, and get along.Read More

This is a guest post by Jessica Lauren Vine Ever since I have been a kid, I have been a little bit weird. I’ve always had an opinion on everything and didn’t really care who agreed with me. I always had a faithful crew that was down for whatever even when it seemed as if the world was against me. Yes, this was before I hit my teenage years.Read More
I heard that the native peoples of Central America did not see the Spaniards coming way back in 1492. They had never seen anything like the ships that Christopher Columbus and his crew arrived on, so they could not recognize them or accept them. Many of us mission-driven entrepreneurs are like those natives. Our experience and worldview often does not include abundance, plenty, and profit for ourselves. We’ve often been the outliers, the folks who are a little weird, wired a little differently.Read More
