The proof is in the puddin'. Here's a glimpse at my latest newsletter blast. You'll want to get on this list ASAP.
Every morning I wake up and remind myself that there are mediocre people outwinning me right now.
It's not meant to position myself as better or more worthy, but it does remind me that if I don't do the work I will stay where I am.
Once I took off the glasses of a consumer and put on those of a #girlboss I realized that there are a lot of brands, side-hustlers and corporate climbers who are winning right now simply because they have the guts to.

People hate millennials because we were taught that we are the best at everything. Multiply that times millions of people and you can see why that would cause a bit of an issue.

It's time to shake off that timidity and go get what's yours. Make it different. Make it good. You'll have no choice but to win.
