Dating Dilemma: What's Worse - Being With An Imperfect Man Or Being Alone? By Julie Ferman As women, one of our “gifts” from our Creator is our amazing ability to discern. In the grocery store, we girls are masterful at picking out the absolute best banana from the bunch, the juiciest grapefruit and the freshest, most delectable tuna filet. Being picky about fruit and fish? This is good… But being overly picky about the men we choose to … [Read more...]

Sometimes Silence Speaks The Loudest

Sometimes Silence Speaks The Loudest By Marianne Simon In the Midst of All the Noise and Confusion, Sometimes Silence Speaks the Loudest. As speakers we want to stand out, to have people take notice. But often, in the attempt to gain the attention, the tendency is to look out at what others are doing, so we strive to be funnier, louder, more daring than everyone else. Unfortunately, in focusing on what others are doing, we lose the key … [Read more...]

Stepping Into Our Sexuality As Speakers By Marianne Simon There is nothing more beautiful, more powerful, than seeing a woman who is confident in herself and her sexuality. Over the years, I’ve heard that, seen it, and sometimes felt it for myself. However, what I had not realized is how much that energy can affect our presence when we are speaking on stage. This last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Thrive Client Attraction … [Read more...]

I Gave Birth!

I Gave Birth! By Marianne Simon I’ve given birth! What’s making a sales call compared to that? As I sit at my desk, list in hand, my palms sweating, my heart pounding, I have to wonder, what is the big deal? How is it that making a few phone calls to friends and supporters has me in such a tizzy? After all, I’ve done much bigger, much scarier things. For example, I’ve given birth! After spending 9 months nauseous, ravenous, then … [Read more...]

Am I Too Old To Start Again? By Marianne Simon At long last, I finally understand the next step of my journey as I transition away from landscape design: I love helping people step into their full glory by creating presentations that inspire action and reflect who they truly are.  Yahoo – done! I started off this new undertaking with a bang.  I had finally figured it out after months, if not years, of agonizing.  It had come together in … [Read more...]

Do I Really Want It?

Do I Really Want It? By Marianne Simon As I handed over my credit card in answer to Loral Langemeier’s call to join their team and commit to wealth, I did so with a strange sense of calm.  A sense that it was just time. Over the past few weeks I’d been hearing her question a lot:  Are you committed?  Do you really want this?  Are you ready to bring on your full game?  And each time I would think ‘Well, yes – but …’  There was always a … [Read more...]

Swimming with Sharks – What I Learned from the Real Deal By Marianne Simon They had warned us in advance we would be seeing sharks.  They told us we should all stay together, and under no circumstances, should we go adventuring on our own. From what I had seen so far on my vacation in Fiji no one had come back with missing limbs or blood dripping from wounds, so I had decided to be brave and go for it. I did not get off to a great … [Read more...]

SUPERWOMAN

SUPERWOMAN By Jennifer Laurent We are moms and we are busy. Between caring for our kids, partners, friends, family, co-workers, bosses, and whoever else seems to cross our paths, it seems that we rarely make the time to care for ourselves. If you are anything like me, you find excuses as to why you don’t have time for you and why there are just so many other more important things to do with your time. A free moment in your day may consist of … [Read more...]

5 Ways To Access Your Higher Self

5 Ways To Access Your Higher Self By Nikki Striefler When we think of ourselves, we normally identify with the fabricated version of ourselves known as the ego. By design, this mask totally conceals our true, Higher Self. Although we may get caught up in the dramas of self-centered existence and even totally identify with them, we eventually come to a place on our spiritual journey where we are motivated to recognize and communicate with our … [Read more...]
