Here are 11 FAQ/interview questions and answers from the Spring 2016 issue of Fashioned Magazine: You are the epitome of a workout buff, have you always had a passion to work out? When did you realize this would become a career for you? Being maybe 5 or 6, I’d always see my dad using the stationary bike and free weights to exercise, so I remember wanting to be like him and trying to follow suit, although I could barely touch the tip of my toes on the pedals. That was a seed t
At this 9/11 memorial in Napa, tucked into the rusty beams were these beautiful single roses that had dried over time; it took me back to my first trip to NYC in 2004 with the talent agency I was signed with, as a teenager who didn't [really] understand what had happened or why. I remember the feeling of my heart sinking to my gut seeing the last beams standing, and 🖊messages written on walls and fences [like, "daddy, please come home", "mommy, we miss you"...] with marker f
You can have it together but still fall short. We don't have to have a life in shambles or be making obviously questionable choices to miss the mark and fall short. You don't have to be 'living in sin' to warrant some sort of attitude adjustment or change of perspective. There are always going to be areas in our day to day life that could benefit from adjustments. Most issues we face will put us in positions to either think, say or do something out of love, or out of somethi
When you hear of, or accuse someone of doing something “like a girl”, you’re likely to translate that into a negative accusation- associating the phrase with weakness or an inability to successfully do something. Fortunately, that kind of stone age thinking is being buried by females who choose to excel in whatever it is they do, with hearts full of courage and mindsets that are far from weak. You’re bound to know someone, at least one- who, just so happens to be a girl that
We covered some very foundational, but pertinent, points in "PART 1" (regarding health and fitness goal setting), so as long as you’ve earnestly addressed those, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of one of the most common stumbling blocks people encounter on the road to results. People. We’ve all had (or, have) those people who somehow linger in our life (or possibly just our Facebook) who criticize and cast doubt at every chance they get. These people are either in dire need
(Updated from 2/9/2015) We know better than to waste our time judging others, yet we are so quick to spend time judging ourselves with a mindset of fear, doubt, condemnation or the combination of all three, which almost always leads to self-sabotage. Before you talk yourself out of moving forward through your goals, because it 'might be too hard', 'take too much time, 'sacrifice', and effort', or because you think you're 'not deserving or good enough', give yourself a chance!
Visible results are why we decide to put in the effort it takes to bring them about, so how do we deal with the hard truth that achieving them takes more time than we may want? The plea I read and hear asked so often is, "Why am I not seeing results, yet?". Moving forward to the results we're after requires more than just effort, it requires a plan, diligence and consistency. Here are five very fundamental things to consider before jumping the mindset gun of "(XYZ) is just no
