Want to be more confident? Here are 10 things to add to your must-do list!
Keeping secrets is heavy.
I've always been someone who lived out loud... I didn't necessarily tell people everything but I didn't purposely hide stuff either.
As I've gotten older, I've gotten even more open with my life because I feel like it's my responsibility to not only tell but show!
But for the last month, I had to keep a secret.
I've been thinking a ton about relationships since my last post. And it's crazy because as many things that happen in this world, nothing affects us more than the relationships we choose and the way we prioritize them.
I have some beautiful relationships in my life and there have been times this week when I was so grateful for them.
There were also times this week when something reminded me of a memory and it made my heart hurt.
Happy Friday! I hope your week was awesome :)
In my post on Monday I told you I would stop learning without implementing, and that to prove it, I would finish my networking course this week!
Well, I did it! Make Networking Less Awkward is LIVE!
I made this course because that moment you walk into a room and realize you don't know anyone, sucks!
It's even worse if you went there to meet people, but you're just standing there because you don't what to say and...
Disclaimer: I believe you can learn from anyone. Especially people who are doing what you want to be doing. So this email is not to imply otherwise.
That said, I'm done learning from people for a while.
Let me explain.
This weekend, on Saturday, I got up at 5:30am, left at six, and drove 3 hours to Austin, TX.
This morning, at 10:27am, I got an email. When the notification popped up on my phone, I saw who it was from and I opened it right away.
Confession: I'm not the best at answering emails. I'm working on that.
But this was one I had been waiting for.
For the last two weeks I've been on the road speaking, networking and pitching my business. Craziness but in a good way, and I definitely want to tell you about it.
If you're an entrepreneur or plan to be one in the future, this is the startup life:
Turning 36 last week definitely had me in my feelings. And not just a little.
The "I'm nots" and the "I don't's" attacked full force about two weeks before my birthday.
And all the sudden that extra year on my age was a reminder that I hadn't moved a year forward in all the traditional societal measures of womanhood.
And the more I thought about it...
I almost missed a huge opportunity because of one thing.
My sister, Kristin, and I have been best friends since I was 1 1/2 and she was born. When I got drafted to the WNBA, she was there. When she got her first big time TV job, I was there. Heartbreaks, successes, life changes...we've been there for each other through everything.
Today, I was trippin'! So I turned to Kanye, and he did not disappoint!
If you like it, comment. If you think it'll help someone, share :)
Cheers to confidence, clarity and happiness!

Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it. – Proverbs 4:23
When I first read Proverbs 4:23 I was like, “YESSS! Finally one out of a million things I won’t have to change in trying to live this crazy, Jesus-follower life.”
Fast-forward to this week and God decided to show me that my interpretation of this scripture – and the excitement connected to it – wasn’t exactly correct. In hindsight He’s been telling me for about 3 months, but this was the week it all made sense. It wasn’t fun. At all.
What's life without amazing friends? Sometimes beautiful souls fall into our lives and we thank God for them. Other times, we need to be intentional about building our inner circle. The people around us have too much affect on our lives to be picked at random. So if you're not sure what you're missing, here are 5 people you absolutely need in your favorites.
Don't let who they are change who you are. 3 minutes on living by principles over feelings.
