What is it like to work with a personal shopper and virtual stylist? How do you create an inner beauty that shines so you can look good FROM THE INSIDE OUT? In this interview with Fashion Stylist, Faithpreneur and author of Styling Faith, Catherine Storing (@stylestoring on social media) describes a typical day of shopping, and takes the frustration out of finding "the perfect fit." Catherine also talks about how she found her purpose as a Styling and Confidence Building Coach from the days she was criticized for not looking like a typical Dominican woman, and found her inner beauty to shine from the inside out.

Have you ever been at a point in your life where you thought you should have accomplished more than you have? My guest in this episode, First Lady, author and life coach Cledra Gross calls it S.H.A.M.E. – “Should Have Already Mastered Everything” syndrome.

If you're trying to move forward and it seems like you get stuck, or if you have a situation or decision that's weighing on you, you're in the right place. In this episode, Daree and Cledra discuss how to drop the weight--literally and figuratively--and let go of everything that's been holding you back.

In This Episode…

  • How to get unstuck when it seems that life is holding you back
  • How to drop the weights of depression, ego and low self-esteem
  • How to create your Plan BE when your dreams seem to have no hope of coming true
  • A different way to look at the act of letting go

Children love to pretend. But when you become an adult, you're not supposed to continue playing pretend, right? So why are so many grown ups still pretending? Either they are busy deceiving others or self-deceived.  

 

In this episode, I talked with the author of The Invitation to Love, Darren Pierre, Ph.D about:

  • Why people grow up and keep living a life of pretense
  • How you can help someone that you suspect is living a lie
  • Learning to live with authenticity
  • Having empathy for people who haven’t “grown up”

Just because you can get it on and pull it up, doesn't mean you should wear it outside. There's just some things you can't "unsee."  And the poor taste in fashion--being a little more trashy than classy--trickles to our kids. Some kids are growing up with female influences that are not the best examples about how to present yourself.  Or they’re taking their cues on appearance and beauty from celebrities on ratchet reality TV shows. My guest, life stylist and designer Kionica Tolbert  of @UniquelyHooked in Dallas, TX breaks it all down.

In this episode, Kionica and I discuss:

  • How to select appropriate fashions by age (13 and up)
  • Setting the rules for how to dress in public
  • Guidelines for dressing modestly (to offend the fewest number of folks)

When our spouse, partner or significant other hurts us, we sometimes feel justified to respond with anger, guilt, or sarcasm. It may make us feel better for a moment, but it rarely produces the results we are hoping for. There is a quote from a book called Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs, and he says: You can be right, but wrong at the top of your voice. In essence, what this means is that we can be "right" in our assessment of the situation and still be "wrong" in how we respond.  We should treat each other with respect, even in the midst of conflict. And being kind and respectful is more likely to lead to reconciliation, because being kind, respectful, tolerant, and patient even in the face of hurt feelings allows your partner to focus on his or her mistakes, rather than your response. 

 

In this episode, LB and I discuss:
  • How to diffuse heated arguments
  • Proper communication that won’t alienate your significant other during a conflict
  • How to T.H.I.N.K. before you speak and avoid “trigger” words
  • Avoiding the “Win or Lose” mentality and mind-shifting your perspective on the issues

It can be scary to try to step out and do something new, especially when it comes to your career and your relationships.  But instead of asking yourself,  “What if I fail” or “What if I can't do it?”, but rather, “What happens if I DON'T?”  So many people wonder what will happen if they step out on something and fail, but what about if they never try?

No one can stop you from following your dreams and pursuing your purpose—no one but you. Life coach Kizmat Tention (aka "Kizzymat") shares her inspiring story and explains how she designed the STEP UP program to help her clients step up, take control of their lives and start living life on purpose.

As you coast through your Facebook timeline, does it not seem that your "friends" are living a fabulous life? Do you ever feel a smidge of discontent? Or maybe it's not personal relationships, but business successes that drive you a little crazy on the inside with each one you see? And if it affects you a certain way, what goes on in the minds of teens? They get so much of their sense of self-worth and ideals from their peers and interactions on social media.

Join us on this episode as I talk with Shan Thomas Creative Marketing Specialist and CEO of EntrepreNewHER in Atlanta, GA about:

  • How to manage social media, self-esteem, selfies and shaming, and
  • How to protect ourselves and prevent our children from pain in the aftermath of sexting and revenge porn

Just as often as single women are asked, "Why are you still single?," childless women of a certain age (regardless of marital status) are frequently asked about when they will have children. There seems to be a societal norm and attitude that women SHOULD bear at least one child by a certain age. Sometimes they are pressed even after having one child, to have more.  But:
  • What if you are childless by choice, enjoying your life with no one else to answer to?
  • What if you have tried to get pregnant or adopt, without success?
  • What if you're just annoyed by the nerve of someone asking such a personal question (sometimes with judgment)?

In this episode, I interview Tangie Henry, RN, Certified Life Coach and Certified Personal Trainer, Founder, Inspired Sistah LLC and she gives her personal testimony about being childless by choice.

Have you ever been offended by someone who would not apologize for what they did to you? What happens if you move on, and they come back and interact with you as if the incident never occurred?  And if they do apologize, why couldn't you accept their version-- was it the words they used, or their lack of sincerity, or something within you that is hurting on a deeper level?  My guest is Dr. Walter Sims, breaking down these scenarios and more.

In this episode, you will learn...

  • How to recognize the language of apology you expect and respond to best
  • How to effectively confront someone who has offended you

How can we create and cultivate friendships as an adult? With so many demands on our time, including jobs, school and family obligations, sometimes we don't get to spend time with our friends as much as we'd like. Months and even years can go by without seeing friends who live in the same area. In an age of social media and technology, we can easily become more distant and disconnected.  Allen Wagner is my guest in Part 1 of this topic.
 
In this episode, you will learn...
  • The four different levels/categories of friendship and how to distinguish between them
  • How to let go of a friendship you have outgrown
  • How to cultivate existing friendships that you want to maintain
  • The best way to reach out to someone new (or an acquaintance) to pursue or deepen a friendship
