Stinkin' Thinkin' Book Cover

Kids today are exposed to more issues than we could have ever imagined growing up. Look no further than the headlines and you will have your proof.  One reoccurring theme that shows up is the negative effects of low self-esteem in children and the serious consequences of them. Most of our kids are not even aware of their self-esteem, and without the essential tool of awareness, they are destined to relive old belief patterns and repeat negative behaviors over and over again. Now that just STINKS! What if through the use of simple, fun, exciting and entertaining exercises you could help improve kid’s self-esteem almost instantly?  What if you were given the tools and techniques … [Read more...]

The Challenge to Being Authentically “YOU” in Business

be-authentic

Are you tired of all the hypy sales and marketing tactics that are out there on the Internet now?  Are you trying to figure out how to stand out in your business and as an expert without doing all those crazy gimmicks and things? I’m talking about being able to be yourself, be authentically you and being loved and appreciated (and well paid!) for it. At one point in my business I got a little away from being “me”. I followed mentors who led me down a path that wasn’t truly authentically me because I thought that’s what I needed to do. After a few years I realized what had happened and I had to turn things back around. Now I may not be making the millions of dollars a year … [Read more...]

Update About Les Brown & Me, Your Authentic YOU Video Tips + Where to Focus For Better Results

katrinasawa-feb814f6-b5e6-4a31-b5a4-0f483561d265-v2

It was so fun being on the same stage (technically) with the great Les Brown this week! Technically I stood on the stage when I spoke but he stood in 'front of' it. LOL His mannerisms and the style in which he speaks is so like what I like to do. He's totally transparent and authentic. In fact, it was hilarious, but he even pulled some waterproof mascara out of this pocket during his talk, and groomed his head and beard with it saying that's how he gets rid of the "grey"! Only he would do that I think but it just proves that you do have to be yourself and that's when people will LOVE you the most. Read more about this on my blog and see more pics too! I got a chance to talk with a … [Read more...]
