Probably like a lot of you, things have been overwhelming lately. So many feelings, so much stuff going on and your mind is trying to wrap itself around everything that’s happening right now. Most of us have not been through anything like this pandemic. We’ve been through some tragedies, we’ve been through things that we had to overcome, but this is big right? So I had to wrap my head around what the hell was going on and a lot of feelings came up for me and I was tired, I was exhausted and I just wanted my blanket and netflix and I didn’t want to show my face. If you felt that way at all in the past few weeks, you’re not alone. There are definitely a lot more of us that are feeling that way. There is no right or wrong right now. There is how you feel and how you move through those feelings at your own pace. If you don’t want to work on your business today, that’s ok. If you’re forging full steam ahead, that’s ok too. Just try to...

This conversation with Melissa was amazing and totally worth the read. She drops the mic on how you can turn the negative self talk into your own personal cheerleader!
Jenessa: I’m here with Melissa Howard who is an international confidence strategist, speaker coach and empowerment photographer and she specializes in supporting overachievers who are ready to end their battle with self sabotage and regain their confidence.
Melissa: Thank you for having me
Jenessa: Tell us a little bit more about what you do, who exactly do you help and how do you help them.
Melissa: I started my career in healthcare and it was always instilled in me as a child to be a go getter. I was a perfectionist and I was so proud of that. Everyone wanted my life. I had a six figure income at age 21 or 22. I had a house, a car and a fiance. I had everything. But I just felt like I was chasing something that every time I've got it, I...
I'm sure a lot of you have heard the quote, or saying that you need to be authentic when it comes to your brand. And people are like, what does that even mean? I think we all know the word authentic means being real, being the true you.
When it comes to branding, or being online, I think that maybe we're not completely clear about what that means. So, let’s talk about it.
Being authentic means coming from a real place within, within you. It's when our actions, and our words are congruent with our beliefs and values. It's being ourselves, not an imitation of what we think we should be or have been told we should be.

Thinking like an entrepreneur can be tricky for those of us that have been “employees” our whole lives. We haven’t ever had to think any different than, “I get up, go to my job, they tell me what to do, and I get a paycheck”.

Be totally honest with yourself...
