Hello All -
I am so excited to brag on the women in my life today!
Is there something you are wanting to move towards in your life? (a new career, weight loss, a fit bod etc)
If so, it is so helpful to invite in a muse!
My teacher introduced me to this concept saying:
“To help with this towards motivation we invite in the muse. Defined as a source of inspiration or a guiding genius…your muse gives you a clear direction to move towards.”
And with that said, here is a short list of the women who inspire me…Please share with us YOUR muses in the comments below so that we can all benefit :)
1. Jena La Flamme :
This lovely lady takes the front seat as my teacher and mentor in all things PLEASURE + ROCKING BODY IMAGE. If you’ve spent years treating your body as a weight loss fix-it project only to be left dealing with the same unwanted weight, crappy body image, and overall sense of hopelessness over ever being happy in your own skin; This is Jena’s jam! Her genius teaching is what you are looking for. No diet book crap here – she gets to the heart of the matter fast and sets you up for lasting weight loss and a restored, healed relationship with food + your body. Bada bing, bada boom! So I say,
a. Sign up for her blog (she is also my writing muse – she writes some damn good copy)
b. Find a way to make it to PLEASURE CAMP NYC – NOV 30-DEC 2. Best weekend workshop on the topic of weight loss EVER.
2. Marie Forleo :
What can I say? This woman is a badass in every sense of the word. She’s like the Oprah for women entrepernuers. She embodies many qualities I value most: humor, brains, transparency, creativity. When I get all down on myself, wondering what the hell I’m doing career-wise or where all my work is taking me. I remember Marie and her story (where she came from) and her current work (endlessly creative and always growing) inspires me to keep putting one foot in front of the other. So I say,
a. Join her mailing list - every Tuesday she sends out wonderfully inspiring + savvy biz advice VLOGS (video blogs)
b. Buy her book: “Make Every Man Want You” She wrote this book years ago, it’s the best book on dating out there – Im convinced. None of that “he’s just not that into you” self deprecating crap. This book is smart and all about YOU as a woman living in your pleasure and happiness and how THAT gets men lining up out your door!
This woman is like the preacher of love, business, and breaking through fears. Her work and writing is poetic and moving, speaking to those places you don’t even know are there – like a good ol’ sermon! She is hot hot hot! Follow her – her work is sure to inspire!
a. Join her mailing list - great stuff for artists, dreamers, and people who long to make a deep difference in this world (and major $$ while doing it!)
b. Buy her book! “Fire Starter Sessions” OMG – it is LOADED with inspiration on lighting a fire under you ass for whatever you want to do, build, create.
Okay, I could go on and on. Here are just a few more shout outs!
1. Erin Stutland – Her Shrink Session workouts are uplifting and challenging. LOVE her. She is generous and genious, best combo ever. My biz coach-helping build the life and career of my dreams. Check out her work here!
2. Heather Peirce – Y’all, little secret: I dont know the first thing about COOKING! This little love saves my day with her “Go Feed Yourself” program. It’s heathy cooking made SO simple and yummy. We spoke yesterday and I am very excited about collaborating with her! My clients will now have access to her online cooking program. Problem solved! Check Heather out here.
3. Jana Mobley - I’m so lucky to have the best girlfriends in the world! And Jana inspires us all to amp up the quality of everything in our lives from clothes to beauty products to men! This woman knows fashion + how to chill (I swear she was a french cat in her previous life). Follow her blog for non-stuffy fashion tips + happy good energy :)
4. My mom and my girls – every single one of you, you know who you are…I am forever humbled and grateful by your crazy love + endless support. You ALL inspire me to just. keep. swimming. XOXO
Mmm mmm, there is nothing like a strong Tribe of women to surround you!
