    Secrets I’d Share With My 20-Year-Old Self

    Hint: No One Knows WTF They’re Doing. My little sister turned 20 on Sunday. So I sat down to write her a letter and I realized how many things I wish I knew when I turned 20.  I wondered whether I should even write her a letter revealing all those mysteries – would I be holding out by not sharing these insights? Or would I officially be an old person pushing unsolicited advice on her? Ah, well… I guess we’ll find out, won’t we? It felt like I’d be robbing her of lessons learned through an entire decade of mistakes and triumphs if I didn’t share some of the lessons…

    You Can’t Quit… Your Tipping Point Could Be Right Around the Corner

    Have you heard of a tipping point? One of my favorite writers Malcolm Gladwell has a book called, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, where he tells stories of how certain points in people’s life had a tremendous and lasting impact. Like ripples in a pond, the effects of these tipping points can be traced back to one moment. Usually, tipping points have an impact that’s unexpectedly huge. We tend to think life events like graduating from college or getting married will be tipping points, but they usually aren’t. Tipping points usually lie outside typical life events. A moment where you’ve decided to go off course from what’s expected…

    Do You Suffer From the Dreaded ‘Imposter Syndrome’?

    If you’ve never heard of “Imposter Syndrome” before, no worries – I hadn’t either. A close friend of mine actually pointed mine out to me recently and I thought, “Holy Crap! I’ve had that my WHOLE life!” Basically, Imposter Syndrome is a pattern where you tend to doubt your accomplishments and have the persistent fear that you’re not qualified or good enough to act with authority on a subject. You tend to go through life feeling like a total fraud. I’ll give you an example. Over time, I’ve become somewhat of an expert on the gut microbiome simply through research and writing. So much so, that doctors have asked me to…

    3 Things Nobody Told You About Being Your Own Boss

    I’ve been my own boss for 5 years now and here’s what I can tell you with 100% certainty. 1. You don’t ever really feel “ready.” If you wait until you’re “ready,” you might be waiting for the rest of your life. Seriously. The great news is there are SO MANY resources available to you. I remind myself daily that someone else has already gone through my newest challenge, and so the answers I need are out there. You just gotta find them. 2. It’s easy to forget how far you’ve come. Just last night Ryan (the husband) was telling me about his friend who lives in NYC who is absolutely…

    Your Definitive Guide to Millenial Marketing

    Marketing for millennials requires tact, authenticity, and increasing perceived value. They tend to be more anti-corporation and care more about ethics than their parents did. And with a buying power of $200 billion and making up a quarter of the population – it’s time to pay attention to what works with millennials. Millennials have been exposed to the most sophisticated marketing techniques for 2–3 decades now. This means the salesy marketing tactics of the past are just that…. of the past. To effectively reach the generation that will make up 75% of the workforce by 2025, your marketing strategy needs to be thoughtfully planned and curated to match their values.…

    You Are Not a Victim of Your Genes

    “We are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace, happiness, and love.” - Bruce Lipton. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been told I look just like my mom. I’ve also been told I act a lot like my father. I have his hands, feet, and his sense of adventure. Our whole lives we’ve heard people make comments about our genetic expressions. So when DNA was discovered – only a short 64 years ago – it seemed to make sense of something we already innately knew. That there’s a piece of us passed down from generation to generation. And isn’t it alluring…

    Is Your “Healthy” Lifestyle Wrecking Your Hormones?

    Hormones are crucial to your health and widely misunderstood. My little sister has struggled with maintaining healthy hormone levels since she was in her early 20’s. She went 4 years without getting her period and was even told by doctors at one point she might not be able to get pregnant. A doctor even had her consider freezing her eggs for a later pregnancy. It was devastating. After seeing numerous doctors – from traditional Western medicine to naturopathic practitioners, I think it’s safe to say she stumbled on the solution on her own. It was her “healthy” habits left over from being a division 1 college athlete that caused her…

    How Your “Second Brain” Influences Your Mood

    You know those nervous “butterflies” you get on a first date or that sinking feeling after you’ve opened an unexpected bill? That’s a communication occurring on a pathway from the gut to the brain through a nerve called the vagus. Scientists are discovering this pathway has a surprising level of influence on our thoughts and emotions. The gut – also called the gastrointestinal tract – is a 30-foot organ system that runs from your mouth to your rear end. About 500 million neurons line the walls of your gut. That’s more neurons than your spinal cord and your peripheral nervous system, which is why the gut is often called “the…

    Poor Sleep Can Make You Sick – 7 Ways to Reset Your Internal Clock

    Researchers are discovering your circadian rhythms are much more important than we once thought. These rhythms influence your metabolism, behavior, hormones, sleep, body temperature, recovery processes, neurotransmitters, and even when you feel hungry. This is more than your sleep cycle, everything in your body runs on these clocks – and you have the power to improve them for a better, healthier life. They are so important, the 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to three scientists for their work on the biological rhythms that run our lives. “With exquisite precision, our inner clock adapts our physiology to the dramatically different phases of the day. The clock regulates critical functions such as…
