Action Steps to apply to YOUR journey
Simplify your wardrobe by creating a color palette:
- Pick two base colors
- Then pick two accent colors
- Go shopping and look for pieces that have one of your four colors
- This way when you bring it home, you know you’ll have multiple pieces to wear with it
I’m rooting for you friends!

After going through our 5 day FREE Network to Hire workshop, one of the participants sent me this message:
Thank you so much for the time and effort you took last week to offer a specific and valuable set of network tips. Prior to finding your class I had already identified the companies I had wanted to work for and started to network. I wasn’t getting many connections and wasn’t getting responses to what I felt like were targeted messages. After I finished your class I implemented your method and connected and received responses within one day from an executive in my #1 company. I’m very hopeful for my continued efforts using all of your suggestions. Thank you so much.
If you’re looking for that type of result, we’re starting our next FREE 5 day live workshop on February 22, 2021
This workshop is for you if you are a female leader who makes over 100k a year. We wanted to create a space for you to network and connect with each other.
