You're Successful, But Are You OK?
Imagine having a superpower to heal your distress while empathetically giving yourself permission to prioritize your peace, preserve your wellbeing, and elevate your perspective on what success and happiness mean to you. The American workplace is experiencing a chronic stress epidemic that’s making us sick from head to toe. Record numbers of employees are breaking down mentally, emotionally, and physically. The pandemic triggered something that has been dormant all along. The response manifested itself with the great resignation and quiet quitting, but in reality, people still have ambitions and need to work. So, what do you do to relieve the build-up of emotions that arise—anxiety, anger, stress, sadness, even sickness caused by working in toxic environments, passed over for well-deserved promotions, blind-sided by unexpected responsibilities, overwhelmed by lack of boundaries? How do you heal the burnout, frustration or disillusionment, when the cost of success seems too high, and fulfilment is fleeting? This book teaches you to use your power to make your pain pay you back. You have the agency to control the controllables; you can reduce unwanted emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. This book offers affirming, science-based self-care strategies and tools that you can use to overcome personal or professional storms, empowering yourself to be your own hero and promoting yourself to CEO of your life and wellbeing. You’re Successful, But Are You OK? is packed with funny, relatable stories and inspirational affirmations to clear stress overload, allowing you to ignite the flow of healing, happiness, and holistic success in your life, now.

EP55 - When Closing Windows Opens More Doors, Pt. 2
It’s always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles. Shutting doors, finishing chapters; it doesn’t matter what we call it. What matters is leaving in the past those moments that are over. Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open. Consider that God closed that door because he knew you were worth much more. In part 1 of When Closing Some Windows Open More Doors, I talked about how multitasking (aka too many open windows) impacts our brains. Now let’s discuss how and why diminishing these distractions can open doors of destiny.

EP54 - When Closing Windows Opens More Doors
When your phone or computer has too many apps running — when there are too many windows open, you know what happens, right? It slows down because it’s trying to process all that info at once. And, when all those windows are open at once, the computer or phone can freeze up and even crash. The same thing happens to us too when we have too many “windows” open simultaneously and for too long! Multi-tasking puts an awful strain on our brains and it's even proven by research!
