It is Sunday. While many are making this a ‘couch and TV’ day, why don’t you make this a ‘first step towards your dreams’ day? Convention dictates that we have earned our time off from our creative endeavors because our paycheck job has been done for the week. This is short term thinking. This leads to long term regret. Your weekends are your best times to tap into the dormant goals you have flirted with while working your 9-5. For those who know me personally you know that my day job was only half of my work day. When 5 o’clock hit, I was off to build my dreams; always working on something or another. Now, being a mom comes first, but I wake up before my family to kickstart my dreams. Sunday is no exception. It is the perfect day for allowing creative energy to flow through you and starting something new! . . . . . . #sundayvibes #creativity #morivation #noregrets #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #positivevibes #motivationalquotes #speaker #motivationalspeaker #corporateworkshop #happiness #wellness #joy #positivity #quotes #vegan #vegansofig #emcee #joy #gratitude #hardwork #dreams #goals @theartistsway_ #theartistsway #sundayfunday
Let’s talk about head shots. Why get them? Even if you are not in the entertainment business, a head shot can go a long way. Pictured here is my absolute favorite. I use this one for professional purposes. For example, I am emceeing a large conference in a few weeks and the organizer asked me for a short bio and picture to place in the guest booklet. Fortunately, I had the sense to get a variety of head shots for various purposes taken, and they have all served me well. You might also have an active Linked In account which could use a photo facelift. Your picture should represent you and your work. I am due for an updated head shot, but until then I have a few good ones in my arsenal to keep me rockin’ and rolling!

The best company to keep is that which inspires you. Sometimes we feel lost and wonder what we are doing here. Then we meet someone who helps us make sense of it. This is my speaking coach. He is the true definition of a master of his craft. This marks the beginning of a new partnership that will take my speaking to the next level. ๐Ÿคž . . . . . . . . #gratitude #appreciation #neverstoplearning #publicspeaking #toastmasters #coaching #mentors #learning #growth #positivevibes #speaker #communication #communicationcoach #masters #motivationalspeaker #mentorship #events #wellness #joy #happiness #positivity @barnesandnoble #work #goals #dreams
You cannot think self-defeating and negative thoughts and expect to lead a positive life. What you say to yourself in your mind, and out loud to the people around you, translates into your reality. Who you are today is not who you need to be tomorrow. Look for your gifts. Appreciate your efforts. Understand that limitations exist only in your mind. When you change your mind, you change your life.  I woke up today with a case of the Mondays. I had a rough night and woke up with a sore shoulder. It was rainy and cold. I started to tell myself that I am not in any shape to make it to the gym today. Then I stopped that dialog, put on my workout clothes, and went to what can only be described as the toughest gym class I have ever been to.  Matter over mind. Strengthen your mind. Stick with your good habits. Your life WILL IMPROVE. Stay humble and grateful for every breath. It is another opportunity to reach your goals. Now go on with your unstoppable, beautiful self and show me what you are really made of. . . . . . . . #monday #slay #motivation #motivationalspeaker #positivevibes #positivity #gym #health #selfimprovement #inspiration #mindfulness #lawofattraction #wellness #joy #happiness #progress #youcandoit #hustle #success #hardwork #successclub #speaker #emcee #motivationalquotes #discipline #personalgrowth #selfhelp
Even boss babes need to let loose sometimes. Thankful for @startoverkit for joining me on some much needed adventure in downtown last night.

New house, same co-worker. The best part of working from home is not having to put on a mask for the world. Literally and figuratively. The tough part of working from home, at this moment, is that it isn’t furnished. After living the minimalist life for years (and by minimalist I mean
Embrace what you perceive as a negative event, and know that you have everything contained within you to bounce back from it. Don’t believe me? Look back at your life and remember a time when you thought it was over. You are still here. And you will be here again tomorrow. Use your pain for purpose and never accept defeat as your destiny. The power within you needs to be shaken to be released. . . . . . . . . #motivation #power #unleashthebeast #positivevibes #positivity #faith #belief #strength #goals #dreams #commit #dreambig #success #successclub #motivationalquotes #inspiration #speaker #motivationalspeaker #wellness #joy #happiness #vegan #vegansofig #selfimprovement
That time I was demonstrating to a subject how I wanted them to pose for a shot, and ended up getting a pretty decent one out of it for myself! Also, creative sessions just have a way of bringing out the best in us. Over the next few weeks I will be designing a creative studio in my home. Any ideas or suggestions to make it amazing? What do you have in your creative space/studio/home office? Please share! .

I have been trying to articulate this idea in the most effective way for a while now. The definition of beauty. We all have our version of what is beautiful, and go to great lengths to embody it. As I get older, my definition of beauty matures with me. Where I once thought it was all about how well my make up was applied, I now know that it is far more than that. What an insult to beauty to think that it is nothing more than what meets the eye! Over the years I have gotten to know some extremely beautiful men and women, in terms of their exterior. What I noticed with almost all of them was a lack of confidence. Imagine that! Spending hours in the gym and in make up stores only to continue feeling inadequate! I can remember a time when I felt that my own worth depended on how others perceived my looks. Once I left that idea behind and began to work on my virtues, I felt better than ever. I am not here to decorate this planet with a made up face or an ideal figure. I am here to affect. To make waves of impact. I am here to inspire and spark progress. Once your purpose extends beyond yourself, you naturally develop confidence and strength. And that, my friends, is a beautiful thing. . . . . . . #beauty #strength #purpose #motivate #inspire #bethechange #inspiration #motivation #wisdom #beautiful #strong #confidence #speaker #emcee #vegan #vegansofig #wellness #joy #happiness #positivevibes #positivity #gratitude #success #successclub #womeninmedia @womenspeaks @washspeakers @tedx_official
This is how we do it! ‘We’ being the go-getters, the hustlers, the unstoppable, the ones who see every obstacle as a necessity on the path to growth. This was taken last week as I took my laptop, and my mini, to a coffee shop to finish up the workday while waiting to meet an old friend and catch up. Whoever said women are great multitaskers must have been one herself! . . . . . . . . . #goals #dreams #motivation #hustle #gogetter #inspiration #motivationalspeaker #speaker #emcee @womenspeakassoc #womeninmedia #happiness #joy #missdoitall #multitasking #momlife #unstoppable #wellness #vegan #vegansofig #noexcuses #humpday #focus #commitment @doonausa @davidyurman
This picture sums up the level of gratitude I was filled with during my birthday last week. Family, friends, and a counter full of vegan food is all it takes to make this girl ๐Ÿ˜Š! Age with grace. We are lucky to be here celebrating another rotation around the sun. Take nothing and nobody for granted, including yourself. We are all in the struggle together. Be kind. Courage is not reserved for a select few. We all have what it takes to make our dreams come true. Be honest with yourself first, then being honest with the world will be a breeze. Continue shining, especially when there is darkness. That is when your light is needed the most. Above all, be an example of what you want to see in the world. ๐Ÿ’œ These are my mantras as I enter a new age of wisdom and growth. . . . . . . . . #wisdom #personalgrowth #enlightenment #birthday #foreveryoung #happiness #gratitude #grateful #positivevibes #positivity #inspiration #motivation #speaker #emcee #motivationalspeaker #success #lifelessons #successclub #desi #indian #vegan #vegansofig #stayclassy #dreams #goals #cake #party #joy #tampa

Set out to slay! I was invited to emcee a very special awards banquet tonight in Tampa. The organizations mission is public safety, and the sheriff and his command force were in attendance. A few outstanding member of society were honored, and I got to meet some old friends. Public speaking enables me to not only bring a certain level of professionalism to events, but to connect with diverse groups of people. This is my arrived-too-early-so-i-sat-in-the-car selfie! . . . . . . . . #tampa #emcee #events #publicspeaking #speaker #selfie #vegan #vegansofig #communication #mc #eventplanning #florida #success #motivation #positivevibes #positivity #wellness #joy #happiness #goals #dreams
Hello Tampa. We meet again! This has been an interesting trip back to my hometown. I got to celebrate life in two very contrasting ways: a funeral and a birthday. I have been offline more and on ‘life’ more during this trip. Breathing in the salty, humid air while recognizing that our time is short. Cherish every moment. . . . . . . #tampa #homesweethome #florida #existence #gratitude #grateful #deepthoughts #vegansofig #speaker #emcee #motivationalspeaker #travel #justbe #mindful #wisdom #lifeisshort #positivevibes #positivity #tampatheatre #heat #vegan #downtown #philosophy
Found this gem from 2013. When I first moved to NYC I bought a DSLR, and eventually a monopod (NY law states that you cannot film with a tripod without a permit). I would spend my weekends exploring the city and making travel videos for youtube. Pictured here is me taking a break from hosting, and asking my camera guy for the monopod so that I could take a shot of the Williamsburg Bridge from Dumbo. Never stop learning/exploring/creating! . . . . . . . #nyc #filmmaker #dumbo @dumbo_bk @williamsburgbridgenyc @earth_enthusiast #travel @sennheiser #womeninmedia #filmproduction #filming #creativity #motivation #dreams #personalgrowth #artist #joy #summer #happiness #iloveny #girlswithcameras #speaker #motivationalspeaker #gear #dslr #brooklyn #view
