We can’t talk about how to celebrate others without admitting the dark side of why this is such a challenge… Jealousy. Ew! No one wants to admit that they struggle with jealousy, do they?
I think jealousy is a particularly challenging emotion to own up to because it feels like we’re showing all our cards. We expose not only our insecurities but also our pride and selfishness--all at once. Yikes!
Even though our dreams and ideas tend to revolve around our biggest passions, it’s typical to freeze up when it comes to talking about those dreams with other people. You know what I mean, don’t you?! "What if my idea doesn’t make sense to them?" "What if they think it's boring or cliché? What if they don’t think I’m capable of pursuing my dream to completion?" Or, even, "What if they steal my idea?" I share how to be proactive at overcoming these hurdles in today's episode!Read More

In order to fight through these limiting beliefs, I challenged myself to remember that "just because it's easy to believe, doesn't mean it's true." Eventually, I was able to dismiss those negative thoughts quite quickly. I share that journey in today's episode!Read More

Financial strategy and success start with knowing what you want and why you want it, Nechelle says. It’s not just, “I want to own a house,” or, “I want to take a vacation every year,” but knowing what those activities really mean to you. What is motivating those desires? What will change by attaining the given items, experiences or wealth? It seems, the better you can answer questions about what’s motivating your financial goals, the better your relationship with money will be.Read More
Bricolage is a fun and fancy word that essentially means "to make do with what's at hand". What makes it special is that the root word of bricolage means "to tinker" and so the idea is that tinkerers are always creating and innovating in a playful way.Read More
