The Red Velvet Rope

January 9, 2014


A couple of years ago, I took a class with this awesome business coach named Michael Port. I learned a lot of great things from him, but one of the most profound was his idea of the “red, velvet rope.” Michael was talking about a business concept but his philosophy was so unique that I […]

Challenge #10: Mastering an Unspoken Language

August 31, 2011


Remember when your teacher told you to sit up in class to show that you were serious about learning? Or your mother got on your case about your bad posture? Or perhaps a friend told you how important it was to make eye contact in an interview. Your whole life people have been telling you, […]

Challenge #9: Your Personal Style

August 29, 2011


As I discussed in the post about Your Image, your feelings of self-worth are partly advertised in the ways in which you present yourself. In addition to making sure you are as physically healthy as you can possibly be (a sure sign that you value yourself), you’ll also want to make sure that the clothes […]

Your Image

August 25, 2011


As we finish up the series of challenges this month in the Self-Worth Challenge, there is one area left that we need to tackle: Your Image (otherwise known as the way in which you choose to present yourself to the world.) There is probably no faster way to communicate to others who you are and […]

If you’ve been keeping up with the challenges in the Self-Worth Challenge thus far, you have done a lot of work. Already you’ve developed several systems to refine your dating selection process.

Make Like Harvard and Get Selective: Challenge 1

August 5, 2011


Remember the friend I told you about in the issue of August’s newsletter? (If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter, click  here to join). The one who acted like people were doing her a favor when they went out with her? Many may not like to admit it, but being given even a modicum […]

The Essential Shift: Why self-worth is at the core of it all

August 3, 2011


If, in the last post, you guessed that lack of self-worth was at the root of those problems, give yourself a gold star. You were right on. Self-worth is what I call a ‘core’ issue. A core issue is one that runs so deep that it will cause not only problems in your romantic relationships […]

Guess the problem here

Ponder this: -You’ve been working at the same company for the past 5 years. Despite your hard work, volunteering for projects no one else will lead and staying late many a night to meet deadlines, you still have not gotten promoted.Although you’d like to use the economy as an excuse, three of the people you […]

The Art of Self-Care

February 23, 2011


As I discussed in my earlier posts, February is typically known as the month people celebrate relationships. Many people assume that if they are not in a relationship, they are automatically excluded from anything related to love. But being single doesn’t mean that you should not be celebrating love. If you’re not in a romantic […]
