Waiting for a man to rise up and “BE THE MAN” before YOU BE THE WOMAN is not only costing you valuable lifetime, but it’s costing you the love and life you desire and deserve. Here’s how to stop waiting…


Today as we enter into Engagement 5: Love You of Date Yourself Well, this episode couldn’t be more timely.


I started this podcast…with the intention of sharing my message of hope with those in need of healing from the inside, out.

I was the one who most required healing.

I was grieving. Still am, actually.

Grieving the loss of both my parents.

Realizing once again how short and fragile life really is, I made a decision that I was going to live every day with greater commitment and creation.

I made a decision that I was no longer going to WAIT to share my heart’s song and the message in my heart and soul.

I knew I had a message inside that needed to be shared…I needed and committed to sharing it!

I had no idea the power that I’d access by opening my heart, soul, mouth and sharing.

I had no idea it was going to have such a powerful impact on my life and life’s work.

Today is a celebration.


A celebration of LOVE.

Loving YOU.

Loving ME.

Loving US.

Loving this incredible life that’s meant to be sipped on…and not drowning in it.

This incredible experience was meant to be shared…

But in order to truly share anything, including yourself, you must OWN IT.

In order to truly share your life, you must fully own it.

And in order to do that, you must fully OWN who you are by LOVING YOU…ALL OF YOU.


No longer waiting.

No longer waiting for anyone or anything to give you permission to SHOW UP, SPEAK UP, STAND UP, AND STEP INTO YOUR POSITION AND PURPOSE OF BEING YOU.





In order to truly love you, dear soul, it’s going to require YOU to BE THE WOMAN.

No more waiting.
