“I’m going to finish this work project in one hour.” “I’m going to clean out all of the clutter in my house today.” “I’m going to lose 10 pounds this week.” I hate to break it to you, but as soon as you commit yourself to a grandiose plan, you doom yourself to fail. You know what I’m talking about: You get so overwhelmed with the big picture that you end up doing nothing at all. Well, I’ve got a plan of attack for you that will help you actually get things done…so you have the confidence you need to get even more things done! It all starts with a first step…

Nobody – woman or man – appreciates being objectified. Whether you are being judged on the size of your breasts or your bank account, it is offensive because you have so much more to offer the world than something so superficial.
