The word "Networking" can make a few people turn and run away as quickly as they can. We have all encountered the "hard sales" types who immediately launch into their overly-prepared sales pitch trying to sell you on their company and product. That image is enough for some to shy away from networking events.
Woman to Woman's Meet and Mingles events are exactly the opposite. Set in a fun, relaxed atmosphere Meet and Mingle events are more about making "connections" than it… Continue

William Sokolin once asked that same question in his quote: “What is the definition of good wine? It should start and end with a smile." I wonder if William was with us at our recent Meet and Mingle event at Ric’s Wine Market in Lakeland. From the moment you entered the event, Ric was there to greet you with a smile, and after enjoying a sip of wine, you definitely had a smile on your face.
Our Meet and Mingle event held on Tuesday,… Continue

As unique as we all believe we are, I find that there are more similarities than there are differences.
It matters not your gender, race or body composition. We all have a desire to look and feel as amazing as we are capable.
So why is it that 92% of us surveyed are not happy with our bodies and feel overwhelmingly tired and stressed out?
I see a pattern.
Despite showing up at the gym for… Continue

So, you want to be a runner?
Well, at the very least you know
you had that fleeting thought a few times as you were trying on bathing suits in that awful florescent lighting that exaggerates the dimpling effect on your posterior.
Let's face it. Most of us really aren't interested in running because we love the action of running. I mean, besides Forest Gump, I really don't personally know… Continue

The word 'deficit' conjures images of politicians on C-Span desperately hashing out ways to regain control of our rising national debt and ability to function in a healthy fiscal state.
So many similarities exist between our national pocketbook and our ever-expanding national waistlines.
In both cases, in order to make positive progress, we need to create a deficit!
Call me simple, but economic and… Continue

One of the most common questions I get asked is, "What's the secret for getting rid of my belly fat? What else can I do?", usually accompanied by a quick lift of the shirt for a brief jiggle and squeeze for a 'show and tell' of how bad the problem is.
Everyone is looking for the secret.…

We all need to hear good things about ourselves. Sometimes we wish the people we come in contact with on a daily basis would give us a few good words, or a compliment, or a word of encouragement or even a smile. However, there might be times that just might not happen.
So why wait?
You talk to yourself all of the time. Are you aware of what… Continue

Clearly, we have an obesity problem in America.
But, listen carefully:
We don't have a weight loss problem.
Oxford University published these statistics in the International Journal of Obesity
"Within 3 to 5 years, about 80 percent of all 'losers' have regained the lbs, and often gained
back a little extra."
Tom Venuto tells us that "According to research by the National Weight Control Registry, that… Continue
