Happy International Women's Day! You ladies know I preach about the importance of supporting women every single day. I write about it in my books, I coach my clients on it, and I discuss it in my girl gang, the Slay Baby Collective. It's not just an annual holiday for me; I talk about it in television segments, on the radio, and on this podcast every single week. It’s my passion and my life’s work. On social media, one of the ways to promote this message and connect with other like-minded women is to use hashtags like #girlpower, #womenempoweringwomen, and #endgirlhate, to name a few. If you’ve searched these tags, you’ve probably seen more and more accounts popping up lately with the same message. And it’s not just Instagram that’s making girl power so cool lately. Pins, patches, and tee shirts available at major retailers like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales with cutesy terms like “Girl Gang” are popping up everywhere. But the question is, are women really practicing what they post, and wear? And will they practice it beyond a few months of pretty quotes on social media and a sweatshirt from Wildfox? I ask this, not because I’m doubtful. If anything, I’m hopeful. I think it’s wonderful that women are seeing the importance of getting behind each other. But I want to encourage all of us to check in with ourselves and make sure we’re taking these terms and applying them to our lives and our careers.

Empowering women means paying them too. Brands and organizations with "no budget" are going to find themselves with "no influencers" and "no talent" to promote their products and speak at their events. In this episode, I'm helping you develop the confidence and strategies to ask for what you deserve, negotiate brand partnerships, get paid for speaking engagements, and more.

As some of you may know, I have been exploring my relationship with alcohol since the end of 2015. You can read more about my journey on the blog (click here), but I know I am not alone when I say drinking does not always serve me. In fact, it rarely does. Throughout the years, I've found myself hungover on way too many occasions, unable to reach my health and fitness goals, and just not operating at my optimal capacity. It has wreaked havoc on my confidence, left me in a bit of a fog at times, and hindered my spirit. I am ready to LEVEL UP in 2018, and booze isn't really a part of that program. I'm not saying I will never touch a drink again, but I am seriously cutting back - again. If you're considering a Dry January, an indefinite break from alcohol, or you just feel like you want to cut back a few days a week, then this episode may motivate you to do just that.

Thank you to our sponsor, Metal Marvels!
Metal Marvels is a brand for badass & bold women who don't fit societies standards. Katie, the creator, was always searching for mantra jewelry with more powerful & in your face messages. Being a woman who curses like a sailor daily, the messages just weren't out there. So she created the amazing Expletives collection that gives women jewelry that helps them feel empowered to be themselves, to be bold, and use the word fuck as frequently as they want. Societal standards for women and success, are bullshit and she runs her company that way too showing that someone who curses like a sailor, has tattoos and purple hair, can be extremely successful in this world. Make sure you follow Metal Marvels Instagram for daily inspiration, a heavy use of profanity, and badass products. And you can save 20% off for being a Style your mind listener.

Can we talk about what a f*cking circus it is when you begin something new?! My apparel launch has been a MASSIVE success. I am thrilled, fired up, excited, humbled, and grateful, but OMG - I am WORKED! It's been an incredible lesson in the inevitable hiccups that come along with blazing a new trail for yourself.
