Team Drop the Cookie SURPRISE announced!

Posted · Comments

I’ve gotten to a place in my business where my own accomplishments do not even begin to bring me as much joy as the accomplishments of my team! I remember when I first started. I hardly had a team to call my own and I would dream of surrounding myself with incredible people who wanted to […]

Want to Start a Fitness Business? Why Beachbody is the Way to Go

Posted · Comments

Starting a fitness business is a dream for many, but turning that dream into a profitable, fulfilling reality can be the difference between following your dreams and having to settle for something else. Whenever someone tells me that they want to start a business in the fitness industry, I always ask them the same thing: […]

10 Things To Do To Make 2014 Your Best Year Yet

Posted · Comments

We are accustomed to waiting to make a change until we have a fresh start. We don’t begin a new workout until Monday, we already ate something unhealthy for breakfast today, so we can start our diet tomorrow and there is NO way we are going to start leading a better life until the New Year! […]

30 Day Clean Eating Challenge

Knowing what raw, clean foods to keep in your kitchen will help you to be […]

Go Out on “The Ledge”

There is a lot to be said for going out on “the ledge.” This picture was taken this past week when we ventured up to the top of the Sear’s Tower (now the Willis Tower). At 108 stories above Chicago, I went out on “the ledge” to take a picture. For a lot of people, […]

The Secret To Success

Last night was a Monday night, which means that The Bachelor was on. Despite my cutting back on watching TV, I typically make time to watch ABC successfully manipulate a dozen young women into believing that they have found their one true love in what I call, a controlled social experiment. Who doesn’t want to […]

Siblings That Inspire Beyond Belief

Posted · Comments

I’ll never forget it. For years, I knelt down at my bedside as a little girl and prayed that God would bless me with a little brother or sister. I tried to barter with Him – I would obey everything my parents said, give up all of my allowance money, I’d never ask for anything […]

Shark Tank – TV Worth Watching

Posted · Comments

Are you a shark, or a minnow? Do you have what it takes to make your dreams a reality, or have you set up camp in la-la-land? I’m not typically an advocate for television series, at least not as of late. I used to be one of those people who revolved their schedule around what […]

How to Give to Others

“Unless life is lived for others, it is not worthwhile.” -Mother Teresa  When was the last time you really did something for someone in need.

Paralyzed Man Dances with His Wife for the First Time

We can’t control the cards we’re dealt. We can, however, play the best hand possible. Janne Kouri is one hell of a card player. At 6’4″ and 285 pounds, he was a star defensive tackle for Georgetown University. He found the woman of his dreams and they moved out west together. And on August 5th, […]

Beating Paralysis With Perspective

Nick Vujicic Man Without Arms or Legs Lives Big

Posted · Comments

The sole most challenging thing to change in your life is not your weight, your job, your friends or your even your family life. The most difficult thing to change is also the most rewarding thing to change: your perspective. By just altering your outlook on life, without even changing your circumstances, you can go […]
