Dear You

I posted a pep talk video back in April discussing how some of the very goals I wrote in my journal years ago have manifested in my life. Acts such as blogging, vlogging, and going to school were once just ideas that have now become some of my every day activities. But one thing I didn’t tell…

Thin Air

I have a hate-hate relationship with the stair master…yes, I said it. I hate it and (judging how I feel when I climb off that treacherous machine) it surely hates me. If I don’t have time to take a class at the gym, I usually do a 30-45 minute mashup between the treadmill, the elliptical,…

Target, let’s talk about the message your vendors just sent to Generation Z

Maybe it’s because I just spent the last two years of my life studying workplace behavior and motivational theories while completing my master’s degree in organizational leadership. Perhaps it’s because my nearly 40-page final thesis included dissecting the five generations in the workplace and how different cultural events impacted their worldviews sand workplace habits. It…

Even Jordan Had A Coach

Somewhere between getting rejected from his high school varsity basketball team and accumulating a net worth of $1.3 Billion USD, Michael Jordan found time to win two Olympic Gold medals, 6 NBA Championships, and battle the Monstars from Moron Mountain in the1996 film, Space Jam. Now, this blog is not here to engage in the ongoing MJ…

It’s May 31st

 Sometimes my Spotify playlist gets me all the way together. I’m an early riser on most days. Shutting off alarms at 5am, 6am, or 7am doesn’t scare the kid. However, even when I’m up, I’m not always active. Today was one of those days. As I rolled out of bed to begin my morning routine, I opened my Spotify…

Just Chill, Bro

“Team No Sleep”  “No days off” “I’m out here grinding” “It’s a hustle, right?” When I was in my teens and early 20’s, I rarely took time off – from anything and for anyone. Whether I was in school, mowing my yard (I don’t have any brothers and my parents allowed that to be my first…

Pep Talk: Big Dreams And Small Budgets

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang sitting on the fence trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents She missed she missed she missed like this…. When I was younger, we chanted this nursery rhyme while we were jump-roping. Little did I know, the third line would become a common theme for me when I set out to…

Ask For Help – You Can’t Do It All By Yourself

A couple days of ago, I posted this note on Instagram:   It was geared toward my Perfectionist friends, because I know what it’s like to feel the internal pressure of trying to beat yourself. I take extreme pride in my work, especially what I promote via MOXIE Nashville because this is my business. However,…

My Mom Was My First Consultant…Here’s Some Of Her Best Recommendations

Last week, I shared a nugget that my mom told me in high school: “If you were mediocre, you wouldn’t have this problem.” In honor of the upcoming holiday, I thought I’d drop a few other gems that she has shared with me along this thing called life. Some are from her own experiences and others have been passed…

Pep Talk: So What

This 2 minute pep talk is geared toward my recent graduates, but it’s really for anyone who needs to free yourself from a little internal, societal, or familial pressure. Add these two words to your vocabulary in this order: SO WHAT  The gist: Be able to enjoy the person you are right now instead of worrying about who you should…
