"There's nothing more beautiful, more free, or more powerful than a woman who truly loves herself."
Christine Arylo, Choosing ME before WE 

Greetings to YOU and a Warm Valentine's Welcome to our new Subscribers! 

Be honest.  How did you greet yourself when you looked in the mirror this morning?  Was it a cheerful "hello sunshine this is going to be a great day" or was it a grouchy "your eyes are all puffy and nothing in your closet fits anyway so you may as well just go back to bed?!"

How about what you said to yourself about work?  Was it "I can't wait to see my clients and move forward on that big project" or was it more like a frustrated "Oh great, just another day of banging my head against my laptop at a job I don't like anymore?!"   

We can all relate to getting a rough start sometimes.  Hopefully the bad days are few, and the good days outweigh the not-so-good days, but if you're being self-critical or trying to go it alone, the video below invites you to lean on a trusted source as you learn to Accept and Love yourself exactly as you are. 

Why is it important?  Because when you accept and love yourself you place a high value on being guided by inner wisdom so your actions are in alignment with who you truly are and what your heart really wants.  You take steps in faith not out of fear. 

When we look outside ourselves for validation and approval the negativity and strong opinions of others can drown out the voice of our inner wisdom which creates self-doubt leaving us frazzled, overwhelmed, and unhappy.  We may play safe and rely on employers (or worse the government) to create security for us instead of taking full responsibility for our own happiness.

Recent studies have shown that 50% of people said YES to the following:

  1. I wish I had more time to spend with my family, friends, and myself
  2. Wealth and happiness can never truly go together
  3. I am not living my life's purpose 
  4. Personal growth and success can't possibly go together
  5. I need other people's approval to be happy
  6. No matter how hard I try it's never enough because someone else always has more
  7. I don't have time to realize my passions and achieve my goals
  8. I need to have that job title to finally feel happy and fulfilled 
  9. I am constantly stressed and working too hard to stay focused or productive
  10. My work feels like a long, hard swim upstream.

If you answered YES to any of these statements, you're not alone.  I've been there too!  But now I can honestly say I am excited and energized when I wake up every morning because I absolutely LOVE what I do and am making a difference. 


People often ask what my secret is to having built such a joyful, thriving coaching business especially in this economy...well, one secret is that I have a daily practice that supports me in handing over my personal and professional life to my trusted source which fosters inspired actions based on faith and that are in line with my gifts, talents, and true calling.


If right now you're stuck in a professional rut and want to transform your struggle into success and feel motivated and passionate doing work that you LOVE then you'll be excited to know the "Synergy Career Success Bootcamp" has been created just for you!  

Maybe you want to fall back in love with the work you do already, are in a life transition and ready for a fresh look at what the next best career steps are for you, or if you are needing to create a solid "Plan B" due to upcoming mergers or re-structuring within your company...This 9-Step Blueprint is an empowering inner-to-outer approach combining authenticity with purposeful action for career fulfillment, and a great way to move forward in work and life with more clarity, confidence, and creativity in 2011. 

People who thrive are connected to deep passion and meaning.  If you want more of this for yourself, I invite you to take positive action by saving your front row seat today!

 Here's to loving ourselves and our life's work with no excuses or apologies,
