EVERYONE NEEDS SOMEONE TO GET AHEAD!

In the spirit of Transformation Tuesday, this week I want to encourage you to find a mentor. I can't begin to tell you how much my mentor has sewn into not only my life but also my business. She and I can discuss just about any and everything: Christ, college, traveling, work, our passion projects, food, music, you name it we've talked about it! More important than us being able to talk about anything, she challenges me, she leads me, encourages me and helps me to stay grounded. If you haven't been seeing progress in your life try finding a mentor. Read more on my mentor here:  http://wp.me/p5aXzi-a0 You can contact Karlise Cureton via email for booking at damselnodistress@gmail.com #Transformationtuesdays...

I heard a great podcast on “The Yogahealer Real Life Show”.  She suggested a simple, gifting-yourself-exercise, unique enough to bring my shoulders down and allow a smile to replace my resting-stressed-face.  She suggested speaking out loud: The reasons your family loves you The reasons your besties call you bestie The reasons you found the career you loved The reasons you love your body All that...
