Are you desiring a life full of abundance, purpose, sexiness, ease and fun? Then it is time to stop living life from a watered down version of yourself, who constantly seeks approval.

My woman code is CHOOSE YOU and be your own heroine.
To me this doesn’t mean you have to do it all on your own. I believe the opposite actually.
To me this means creating the support in your life that will help you in becoming the best version of you now.
A coach, a nanny, a chef, an assistant and more. Choosing you is the most loving acts you can do for yourself and your loved ones.
Drop the word “exercise,” throw out the term “physical education” and stop cowering when you hear “dance.”
Replace those dreary and loaded terms with the sheer joy and the simple pleasure of moving your body. No matter your size, your shape, the flesh that jiggles, the bones that stick out, the maleness or femaleness of your contour—you will find in your moving body an expression of your deepest desires, your visions, your dreams, your one true voice that is inside you always.

The truth is, going it alone can lead to overwork and burnout for you, and can create unnecessary stress and tension in your workplace. It can breed competition, fear, dishonesty, tunnel vision and inefficiency.
Do you have nagging muscle aches, joint pain, headaches, the afternoon energy crash, unhealthy food cravings, mood swings, feel foggy headed and have low energy?
