Do you ever feel like you suck?
I’ve heard lots of people tell me that if only they had that perfect job, or X amount of money, or a perfect butt they would like themselves and be happy.
And I get it. I used to think all that outside stuff was the answer to feeling awesome.
Until I started getting all that stuff, becoming “successful”, and having the body I always wanted.
And guess what? I still felt like I sucked.
That’s because feeling awesome has nothing to do with ANY of your external conditions.…
Just the mere sound of that word scares the shizzle out of me!
I must confess – I am an investing virgin.
I’ve been too freaked out (especially after the 2008 stock market crash) to invest my money. It feels much safer to put it in a savings account.

Do you ever feel stuck in your emotional and/or mental shit?
And it feels so uncomfortable to be stuck that you are willing to do anything to distract yourself from how icky you feel?
I’ve been there many times!
Anytime I don’t want to face something in life I eat too many cookies, or watch lots of TV, or attend way too many happy hours in the hopes of distraction.
But those things never make my yucky feelings go away.
And oftentimes it just makes things worse because I’m not facing my issues head on
So I called in one of my favorite badasses on this topic, life detox coach Lisa Fabrega.…
Does your wardrobe ever have you feeling dumpy frumpy? Or sad? Or ugly?
I hear this a lot from peeps who work in conservative industries…and also from women who want to wear fun things but don’t want to look like wannabee teenagers.
So that leaves many of us wearing the same gray, black, or navy blue clothes that keep us feeling boring and tired.
And I know you might think it’s just clothes. So who cares, right?
Well, according to a psychological study done at the University of Hertfordshire, researchers determined that wearing certain clothes definitely affects our emotional state.…
