In today’s episode I share a few lessons I learned about business and life — on the beach — while on vacation in Mexico.

Lesson #1: Don’t give yourself away.

Lesson #2: Show up and follow though.

Which leads me to these questions…

Are you giving yourself away?

Are you valuing yourself, and your time, at less than what it’s worth?

If you’re giving your time, talents, or yourself away…OR decreasing your own value because you don’t know your worth…STOP doing that.

Please don’t be a Yolanda.

Are you showing up for the opportunities that are available to you…including the ones YOU’RE creating?

If not, why not?

Are you a Yolanda?

If so, why are you doing this to yourself?

And the bigger question is, are you willing to STOP doing this today?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


1. Where are you devaluing yourself and your time?

2. Where are you NOT showing up in your life?

Don’t be a Yolanda.
