When was the last time you experienced anxiety ? Anxiety is more common than you think and it effects nearly twice as many women as men. It’s a response to how your body reacts to your thoughts and surroundings. It’s hard to stop once it starts and to me that’s the hardest part.⠀
In my blog post I talk about my personal struggle with anxiety and panic attacks, when I knew I needed help and how I help manage it. Click the link in my bio to read it ! ⠀
Conquering your anxiety is a marathon. Not a sprint. Everyday I am working at it to conquer it and I wish the same for you.⠀
I had a vivid flashback this morning of spending DAYS riding on the back of a boda boda in Uganda looking for stackable plastic bins in a feeble attempt to keep the 8x10” garage we were making sandals in somewhat organized. Half-made sandals we’re strewn all over at the end of the day and leather and rubber and fabric scraps everywhere. It was all such a mess.
I few days in to searching, I broke down in tears because I had this big, crazy vision of something that looked like this 👆🏼 but couldn’t even manage to freaking find stackable plastic bins. Who was I even kidding with this, “Big Dream?” I was obviously not the woman for the job.
So I cried.
And then I blasted some Missy Higgins 💁🏼♀️ though my earbuds and I got back on the freaking bike and I kept searching.
I eventually found the bins.
It took me a lot longer than I wanted. And spoiler alert, so did every. single. other mundane and frustrating and unglamorous small step.
Now, when I walk into the Sseko factory, filled with the most brilliant and hardworking humans, creating the most stunning products that are delivered on time and with ridiculous quality standards, buzzing with light and laughter, AND VERY ORGANIZED supplies, I usually cry. (But this time it’s happier tears.)
The plastic bins are long gone. But make no mistake, I needed those stupid bins.
You can’t skip any of it.
It all matters.
Please don’t give up because you’re not where you thought you’d be by now.
The plastic bins, the dirty diapers, the cold calls, the moonlight side hustle, the cover letter that goes unanswered, another bad first date.
They are all your sacred teachers on this journey. You’re right where you need to be.
Don’t give up now.
(What kinda magic are you making with your mundane? I wanna cheer you on!)
2 years ago my confidence was non existent! I was at an all new LOW..👇🏼⠀⠀
My thoughts were negative ⠀⠀
My emotions were a mess ⠀⠀
My self worth was gone⠀⠀
Anyone know what I that feels like?! 🙋🏻🙋🏻 ⠀⠀
2 years ago I wish I had someone to guide me! I remember being so nervous about moving across the country but excited to have this new adventure that was calling my heart! I was scared of leaving my family and all that was safe but new I was meant to live bigger so I packed up everything I owned in a 10x10 truck and moved West! 🙌🏼⠀⠀
I fell IN LOVE with the mountains and my new surroundings but a few short months after moving to Denver, my relationship had escalated to an all new level of unhealthy and became extremely dangerous for my well being. I didn't know what to do..I felt stuck, I felt unsafe, I felt alone, and I was completely derailed. All of the confidence I gained from pushing my comfort zone went out the window. I asked for guidance and found the strength to leave the unhealthy situation. ⠀⠀
It was one of the hardest obstacles to overcome but I'm so GLAD that I did! At the moment I had no idea why my life had gone in the direction it did.....I must tell you. ⠀⠀
Through adversity comes champions. 🙌🏼✨ ⠀⠀
Strength doesn't come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you didn't think were possible! 💋 ⠀⠀
My scariest "unknown" moment has now been the BIGGEST BLESSING in my life because it brought me to the point of being CALLED to help others uplevel their confidence in themselves and their businesses and truly become UNSTOPPABLE! 🔥🔥🔥🔥 ⠀⠀
Are you ready to become unstoppable?! ⠀⠀
Are you ready to derail your fears? ⠀⠀
Are you ready to UP LEVEL your confidence?! ⠀⠀
I CHOSE me and I was guided to my purpose. It's time for you to choose you and I'm here to guide you when you're ready to take your life in your own hands and live a HELL YES lifestyle! 🙌🏼🙋🏻 ⠀⠀

80% of my clients pay me in full.⠀⠀
Yes, OVER 80% of my $20k clients pay that $20k in full.⠀⠀
I know what you're thinking, "How?! My peeps are saying $5k is expensive?! Where do you find these people?!" ⠀⠀
It's not about where I found the people (I found them in the same places as you). ⠀⠀
It's about where I found the beliefs I am currently practicing. ⠀⠀
I didn't go into this industry with a freaked out, omg please work mindset.⠀⠀
I went into this industry with a I am fucking doing this, take my money, kinda mindset.⠀⠀
I've worked with mentors since day 1. ⠀⠀
Because I didn't want my business to be functioning at the level of my current beliefs.⠀⠀
I wanted to expand, think and know bigger and I wanted to have someone at that next level to align too. ⠀⠀
It's the best thing I ever did. ⠀⠀
It's why my 1:1 is so powerful. ⠀⠀
Clients doing $20k cash months over and over, signing 5 figure clients, hitting their biggest months... ⠀⠀
Because I know it's not about teaching them.⠀⠀
It's about being the leader they want to align too.⠀⠀
They share my belief system, I hold them accountable to their next level and together we rise to the nextnextnext level. ⠀⠀
I take on a couple clients every 4-5 months. ⠀⠀
We will talk every day with Voxer coaching and support in between calls and each week go deep on breakthrough calls. ⠀⠀
The way you think, the things you expect and of course the $$$ you make will all be elevated. ⠀⠀
I can't wait.⠀⠀
DM me and let's get started this week <3

Have you built yourself a beautiful life yet?⠀⠀
Are you still struggling internally expecting potential clients to pay you high tickets but unable to give enormous value?⠀⠀
The choice is yours- but if you are ready to work through your inner demons, you've got to start NOW... and then, I'll teach you how to make incredible sales.

You can either try and control your entire business and every sale with the perfect strategy and marketing and showing up all the time for the rest of your life, which quite frankly sounds fucking exhausting.⠀
You can be in alignment and surrender to everything you want and allow yourself to be guided to THE. PERFECT. THING. for your business right now. The next step for maintaining and growing your income.⠀
Yes that may include strategy or marketing or funnels or whatever.⠀
But it won’t feel hard/forced/unclear.⠀
You’ll know EXACTLY what to do next.⠀
AND it’ll work.
What’s one thing you can do to get in the flow today? 👇🏻👇🏻

did you know social media is meant to be SOCIAL? 🤦🏼♀️🤯
i know what you’re thinking - you posted, it took you forever to create an amazing caption, the perfect picture and now you want me to be SOCIAL!?!? 😳
YES! engaging, commenting, liking, DMing - all of the above! ☝🏼
if you post and ghost chances are your post isn’t going to be seen 👀
you HAVE to engage with people. you HAVE to put yourself out there.

Yes, I wear a dress almost every day.
Yes, I have a glitter pink iPad and the shiniest cup Starbucks offers.
Yes I wear makeup and my lashes are always done.
I am also a board certified plastic surgeon who does 7 surgeries a week. Did you know that 92% of plastic surgery patients are female, but less than 10% of plastic surgeons are female? 🤔
I'm grateful for the strong, resilient women I meet on my travels. The ones who have really endured life and who were born to ease the suffering of others. This is Radha, she is a burn survivor and leads a support group for burn survivors in Nepal. Many of the women in her support group have sustained long-term injuries that have hindered their ability to work. They were ostracized from society, "treated like animals" Radha explains. She founded the Radhako Burn Survivors Team as a community for these marginalised women to have a safe place they could work, socialise and speak openly about their suffering. Radhako's approach is that no woman should be discriminated against or disadvantaged because of their abilities. It was such an honour to interview Rhada today and learn about her work 🙏❤

🔌We put so much power, weight and emphasis on the words we use, without realizing it. 📣Your physiology and your tonality behind how you say (or think) certain words bring them a specific meaning to you. This meaning can completely alter how you view the world, and your situation. 😕Let’s say you launch a course, and you don’t get as many people as you planned. How you define “failure” in your life is the way in which you will act and react to this situation. You may say, “ this launch was a failure” but those with a success mindset see it as “this is an opportunity to tweak and try again.” How can you shift your mindset so “failure” or even the idea of failure doesn’t bother you any more? Join me in my FB community at 2:15pm MST where I will be sharing these skills you can easily develop. 📲Money Making Soulful Entrepreneurs. 🔗Link in bio.🔗
This Saturday my BeauTea Queen sisters and I hosted our second annual Tea Party. It is an understatement to say that I love and I appreciate these women. We started out with a vision and we are putting that vision to life! I look forward to building and growing with these two for many more years to come! I also want to thank all of the queens and little queens that were in attendance and gave us such great love and support. We appreciate all of you! And also a special thank you to the vendors and workshop presenters that joined us this year, we look forward to building great relationships with you 👸🏽👸🏽👸🏽 #wearebeauteaqueens

Tired of the bullshit? Sick of feeling “stuck” we got you... Do you know what tf you should be doing but just can’t get yourself to do it?
Do you expect worse care scenarios or often find yourself saying “of course that would happen to me?” Do you often “play it safe” and naturally expect things to fail?
These beliefs and judgements are what keep us stuck and dictate how we show up in the world.
It’s time to break your patterns.
If we're always expecting the worse and keeping our nervous system activated, we live in a stressed out state whether we consciously know it or not.
Once we change our beliefs, we change how we view the world and ourselves.
If you’re ready to release these beliefs and install new ones join a team of women doing this work. Our group coaching program In the Flow launches soon! DM us “start” for more details! #patternbreaking

This week, I spoke to our Domestic Abuse Services Coordinator, Hinna Zafar, about the amazing work our Domestic Abuse support team does here at Penny Appeal.
Hinna and the team have spent over 133 hours listening to and helping women and men who have been victims of domestic abuse. If you’re experiencing any kind of domestic abuse, we can help – call 0808 802 3333 for our free, private helpline or visit https://domestic-abuse.org/ for more info.
Hinna told me that 1 in 5 children experience domestic abuse or neglect in the UK, and I was super shocked! I want to make sure that Penny Appeal are doing something to help kids like that, who are dealing with abuse and neglect all on their own.
I have so many ideas about how we could help, really excited to share them with you soon!🧡 #KidBoss#DomesticAbuse#ChildCruelty#MuslimCharity#WomenForWomen

Why I think most people don't succeed at network marketing gigs.......
--they think it's going to be much easier than it is
--they think it's quick money
--they don't believe in the business model
--they don't educate themselves about their business or products or how to talk about them
--they expect instant results from minimal work
--they don't follow the advice of their sponsor
--they are too tied up emotionally to the outcomes of small daily actions rather than the big picture
--they don't realize the power of residual income
--they make assumptions and prejudge

This was gonna be a post for yesterday, but then yesterday got so busy and so now it’s a post today. And anyway, this is the point of the post, right? We’re trying to be more okay with making peace with not doing it all. But it’s difficult, because The Retreat team wants to make this a place for women to come and build community together, and we want it to be as great as possible. But we all work full time jobs and so we do the best we can! This post is more of a self-meditation to remind ourselves that we do what we can, and we’re here for you, and we’re gonna keep doing what we’re doing. And we hope you’ll join. xx, The Retreat team 🙂✨ #retreattous#retreatwithus

“WITNESSING RESISTANCE, JUSTICE DOING, COLLECTIVE ETHICS & THE ZONE OF FABULOUSNESS” An alternative ‘trauma’ approach to working with people who have experienced oppression and violence, from a decolonizing anti-oppression stance, which focuses on the resistance of survivors of violence and oppression. Honouring the wisdom of the people we work alongside in their responses to oppression, exploitation and violence brings forward their agency and wisdom.
This one is for the women and men out there who claim they do not need feminism because they are already free and equal.
And how do they think it came to be that way?
It became so because thousands of women through out history have been fighting to have those rights.
It is now our responsibility to continue fighting to maintain and improve them as well as fighting for the millions of women across the world who do not have the same privileges we do.
Issues such as period poverty, guardianship system, FGM, maternal death, gender pay gap, childhood marriages, GBV need to be spoken about and addressed. The war against such issues cannot be won without #feminism .
Meet Manju! She's showing the ties made out of recycled sari’s by her and the other women of HATTIHATTI I will be selling soon on MuniMuni.nl!
She was a little shy at first, but showed me more and more of her beautiful smile.
When she was younger, she suffered from typhoid. Because of that she lost a part of her hearing.
Since a short time she has a cochlear implant, through which she is able to hear more again.
Girl... you rock!! Smile on!
And men could learn a lot from her... she actually knows how to tie a tie!!! 🤩🤗
Soon ties, bow-ties and beautiful kimonos from HattiHatti on MUNIMUNI.nl.

Tips for a beginner when first starting your exercise journey:
1. Start slow.
2. Listen to your body and don’t be afraid to modify if needed.
3. Be patient with yourself. It takes time to build strength and endurance.
4. Realize you will be sore. Drinks lots of water, stretch daily, and foam roll.
5. Don’t give up.
If you’d like guidance/help on how to get started, I’d love to add you to my online bootcamp! -30 mins a day -simple meal plan -accountability and support
We start June 3rd!
Comment below and let’s chat. 😉
For our first post I thought about how language is power.
Imagine moving to another country and not being able to fully express yourself. Now, imagine wanting a coffee, walking up to the counter with a speech that you've already rehearsed in your mind over and over again, and being thrown off when the cashier asks you a question or utters a sentence that wasn't part of your script.
Imagine being in a classroom, wanting to participate or ask a question, but not finding the right words in the moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Imagine going into the doctor's office, an interview for a job or a new flat and feeling so inadequate that you can't assert yourself, that you can't convey your message, and therefore you end up caving more than you should because you can't defend yourself.
These are real-life situations that I have encountered in the past 5 years while living in Germany. It was only until after I moved to berlin that I realized how little power I had.
I don't quite understand why communication is defined as a "soft skill" when being proficient in a language is the difference between landing a job or not, getting that apartment or not, feeling like a full and active member of society or not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is one of the reasons why in the summer of 2018, I decided to gather some of my girlfriends in Berlin and women who I had long been in touch with within the polyglot community not only because of what brings us together, our love for language, but also to support each other in our everyday struggles and also to celebrate our small wins.
The second reason will be discussed in a subsequent post.
Without further ado, welcome to the Polyglot Tribe!! A language blog by women. for women.
I am Geraldine Salazar Prince, creator, producer and editor-in-chief of PST.
I hope that you will join us in this journey of empowering women to pursue their creative endeavors and reach their language goals. 🦄💜
Hey guys..it's been a while since I did a little intro, so here goes.
I'm Têya (think hey-a Têya) and I created this little space on the internet because I wanted somewhere to add a little positivity to the internet and to connect with aligned souls (these types of connections seriously light me up, so please never feel shy about saying hi or sending me a dm). As you've probably picked up, I'm super passionate about helping women learn to accept and love themselves, because let's face it, the media and our cultural norms have done a lot of damage around the ways women perceive themselves and we all deserve a lot better than this!
I started focusing on my own self-love journey when I had my now six year old daughter Cadence as I wanted to help her avoid a lot of the crippling insecurities I've dealt with around my body (hello disordered eating) and sense of self. I didn't feel like just telling her she was enough was going to cut it, so I decided to learn how to love and accept myself so that I could show her how.
While I started my journey for my daughter, I am now so grateful that I gifted myself this mindset shift as it has seriously transformed my world. I feel so much more connected to myself and my purpose than ever before and this has helped me to be a better mother and friend, and has even attracted some incredible friendships into my world that absolutely light me up!
I'm not going to pretend that I no longer have insecurities, I'm just getting so much better at "right-sizing" them and not allowing them to stop me from doing the things I love in life.
Enough about me, I'd love to hear about you. What lights you up?! xx
Did not feel like recording today. I went into this workout feeling a bit defeated. I am not happy with how I performed yesterday while in the studio and today I am just so bloated and down on energy and joy in general. But once I started my workout I smiled remembering that Tracy was filming this next store to our class yesterday and she is wearing pink which is my favorite! So I recorded a bit of this to remember I showed up for myself today.💛 Also, in the service of mental health month, I feel it is imperative to share that yes, even therapists feel overwhelmed, sad, and sometimes have vicarious trauma from our exposure with clients. Admitting this and admitting when I am having a rough day is a strength. Thank you all for sharing this journey with me and being containers for me when I am having an off day 💛 @tracyandersonmethod#TAmily#womenforwomen#tracyanderson#tracyandersonmethod#tamilystrong#tamilyshares
THE NUMBER ONE THING HIGH-ACHIEVING WOMEN ARE MISSING IN THEIR LIVES is a tribe of other high-achieving women, rising together arm-in-arm.
I know you’re missing this bc I talk to you bbs daily & you TELL ME you are. I KNOW you. I know you want a BIG, EPIC life. I know you REFUSE to settle. I know you want to go FAR. And I know you well enough to know that you WILL go pretty far. … But do you wanna know how you can go even FARTHER?
When you team up with women who are just as committed to their personal, professional, emotional, & soul growth as YOU are… MAGIC happens. The growth is EXPONENTIAL.
The Flex Your Female SISTERHOOD is attracting only women who are MAKING SHIT HAPPEN. Who want to change & evolve & grow in every area of their life, & are prioritizing their own growth ABOVE ALL ELSE. These are women who want to do the WORK. The deep, dark soul work. And they want to do it with you. Yep, the sisters you’ve been yearning for are yearning for you too.
This sisterhood isn’t for everyone. I’m looking for women who open their hearts, drop in, & go deep. Wild, raw women who have goddess energy stirring inside of them. Who know they’re powerful beyond belief, & are ready to unleash the powers inside of them. Does this sound like you? Are you ready for a DEEP transformation? DM me or click the link in my bio - DOORS ARE ABOUT TO CLOSE! ✨💪🏽💫🙏🏽🖤

Do you remember that exact moment when you transitioned into “WOMANHOOD?” … me neither.
In ancient times, we marked this rite of passage with a ceremony, ritual, or symbolic transformation. Today, it’s barely even acknowledged.
We do the painful, confusing work of transitioning into womanhood alone. We hide our struggles, isolate ourselves, & fumble around in the darkness — cut off from our sisters who are going through all the same struggles as we are… alone.
How much easier would this path be if we did it with the collective strength of our sisters? We’d be empowered by each other’s stories & wisdom, & could light the path for one another. Show each other the way & never walk alone. Stand on each other’s shoulders. Rise together into the goddess-priestess-queens that we know we’re meant to be!
On Wednesday, I’m initiating members Flex Your Female SISTERHOOD with sacred rituals designed to open your heart, drop your layers of protection, & reveal your raw, wild woman inside. We’re dropping right in & going DEEP. Because feminine connection happens when we can truly SEE each other. Only then can we identify your unique powers & uncover how you can use those powers to serve yourself, your sisters, & the world at large.
You DON’T have to do this work alone. The women who’ve joined the sisterhood so far are the REAL. FUCKING. DEAL. All are coming in with the intention to up level their entire lives & to support their sisters in doing the same, rising arm in arm. These women are something special. It’s not a coincidence that they sought out this sacred space. In a way, I feel they already know each other; it’ll be a reunion of sorts. It gives me GOOSEBUMPS.
Yes, I’ll be your coach. Your teacher. Your guide. But more importantly, I’ll hold space for YOU to hold & lift up ONE ANOTHER. YOU’RE THE POWERFUL ONES. When we circle together, all our unique powers will be activated to serve the sisterhood as a whole.
Without sisterhood, we compete. Without sisterhood, we remain girls. Do u have a group of conscious sisters who see & support you, w/o selfish motives or judgement? If u were to organize a circle of heart-entwined women, who would u invite?

💌 MY DEAR SISTERS, 💌
This may be the most important post I’ve ever done. Today I'm announcing something special - something I've been pouring my heart & soul & sweat & tears into for MONTHS. This is BIG. R U READY??? I'm SO elated to officially announce, for the first time ever, my new group coaching & sisterhood program...
✨💪🏽The Flex Your Female SISTERHOOD💪🏽✨
I've coached thousands of women who are dissatisfied with their lives. When they first approach me, they usually find themselves in a state of imbalance. For instance, they're successful at work, but hate their body. Or maybe they have a hot bod & passionate relationship, but they're totally broke. Some of them have found their life calling, but can't afford the lifestyle they want. Many of them "have it all" on paper, but still feel unfulfilled in life. They all want something more. CAN YOU RELATE TO ANY OF THIS?
I believe you deserve it all. And there's no reason you can't have it all! So, WHY DON’T YOU?
The common thread I've found in all the women I've coached is that they suppress certain aspects of themselves that make them powerful, authentic women. Consequently, they kill any chance to realize their true potential in every area of their lives. When you step into your most powerful & fearless self, everything else around you EXPANDS & GROWS!
In the Flex Your Female SISTERHOOD, I will help you unleash your six core FEMININE POWERS so you can show up as who you truly are: a badass goddess that has the power to do, be, & get ANYTHING she wants. AND you’ll be part of a conscious sisterhood of women who have your back, hold you accountable, & support your evolution in becoming the highest version of YOURSELF.
Just by the fact that you're still reading this post, I KNOW there is a raw, wild, powerful, FIERCE female stirring inside of you, just WAITING to be unleashed. If you know this is for you… hurry & SECURE YOUR SPOT in the Flex Your Female SISTERHOOD at http://FLEXYOURFEMALE.COM!!!!
