Happy Hump Day! 
My girls are starting their summer vacay. Like today.  I can hear them now.  
"Mom mom mom, MOOOOMMMM, mom can we go to the pool? can we go to the pool?  Mom, can we go to the pool?  Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom."  It's as if they take no breath in there whatsoever!  

They are so sweet and I can't wait to spend the summer with them but ummm... feel free to save me later in the summer! 
I actually don't drink coffee but I am completely obsessed with these little pick-me-ups in the afternoon.  The best part? Amazon delivers them too!

Did you try out focus@will?  It's an easy tool to help you focus. at. will.  Let me know what you think! 


PRAISE.  Praise to the woman who is "abrasive", "judgmental" or "strident"!  

It's not a "feeling" that we have that we are criticized for being forceful, it's actually fact that it happens.  "76 percent of the negative feedback given to women included some kind of personality criticism." 
But you know what else?!  It also probably means she is doing "substantive work of any kind" and will "be criticized — with comments not just about her work but also about herself."  Ouch that can sting, I know.  
But one person's criticism's of me or my work doesn't make or break me.

So cheers 🥂 to the abrasive, judgmental and strident women!  We support you!  (And hope you learn to love criticism too!)

GIVE.  Obsessed! 

You do ads. I do ads.  We all do ads.  Now circle around dosey doe!
But what is with the 20% text maximum?? I'm obsessed (and thankful for) this free tool to help me get it right before I place that FB ad order!

Then, with videos, Adrienne Dorison, recently shared that adding captions was one of her changes that helped increase video views by 2000%.  Hellooo!! That's huge!  I am pocketing that nugget for when I actually start doing videos!  
Yeah I'm kind of obsessed with Adrienne too!  You think I have a way with words?  Man, does she!  If you go to her bottlenecks webinar today will you pleeease send me your takeaways?!

ASK. Anything!

Well, I got your questions and they are so fun!  Of course, I didn't account for the time it takes to dig up the answers! I want to give you more than my humble opinion here so please be patient with me, I am working on getting awesome answers for you!

Last but not least.

Just for fun and because it's Wednesday let's judge some people, right??  
Now you can make an "aggressive choice to look horrible" for the low low price of $425!

Wishing you a great day ahead!
