A Confidence Coaching Success Story with Jamie Wessel

"Before hiring Suzanne, I was in the middle of a difficult emotional experience. Also, long before this particular situation, I had a low mood almost all the time and was living day to day worrying about the past/future and not enjoying the present at ALL. I had a lack of hobbies and passions and was totally unfulfilled with life. Prior to my work with her, I felt like I had no real purpose. It was like I was waiting for someone or […]

Human Barbie Dolls: Valeria Lukyanova, Heidi Montag, etc.

I was shocked when I just read an article about this 21 year old girl. This is so unbelievable and sad.  😥 She describes herself as the most famous woman on the Russian-language internet. She has clearly spent tons of money on plastic surgery to have doll-like facial features, huge boobs that are disproportionate to her figure, a super tiny unnatural waist and long straight bleach-blonde hair. In most of her photos, she puts on […]

Are You Taking Things Too Personally?

Whenever you interact with other people you have the choice to listen, engage, acknowledge, agree, disagree and let go of what they say, or you can take what they say personally and feel hurt or attacked. What anyone says or does doesn’t necessarily have to do with you because it is usually based on their own emotions, experiences and perceptions. If you do take what they say or do personally, you will most likely end […]

Ashley Judd Slaps Media in the Face for Speculation About Her “Puffy Appearance”

I love this article! Way to go Ashley Judd --she writes in The Daily Beast about how disappointed she is with the media’s negative reactions to her appearance and the unrealistic standards we women face nowadays...   "The Conversation about women’s bodies exists largely outside of us, while it is also directed at (and marketed to) us, and used to define and control us. The Conversation about women happens everywhere, publicly and privately. We are […]

Take a Leap of Faith! Happy Leap Day!

Today you get a whole extra day! YAY! How are you going to use that bonus time? How about you take a leap of faith?! Get out of your comfort zone and face one of your fears...do something today that scares you! Taking a leap of faith means jumping into the unknown, which is something I LOVE doing! The unknown is exciting, not scary and I look at the unknown with curiosity, NOT fear. Why not give […]

Confident Eye Contact

    Confident people always make frequent and direct eye contact. There are 8 forms of non-verbal communication and eye contact is one of the most valuable non-verbal means of communication you can use. So much of what we want to communicate can be delivered through our eyes. One glance from another person can speak volumes about that person's level of confidence and their attitude. How many times have fights broken out simply because one […]

TBC Indoor Go-Kart Racing Fun

  WOOOOO-HOOOOO!! I just love it there. You can get the go karts goin' super fast!! A great way for me to get my winter "Speedy Bike Girl" adrenaline fix 🙂 I was flying around the track doing 60km/hr while sitting just 2 inches from the ground! The 13-turn road course means that the drivers with the most guts and skill will get the fastest times. The time flies by SO quickly, so you've gotta […]

Self-Love: How to Fall In Love With Yourself

Happy Valentine's Day! 'Tis the season to be talking about love...and because self-love is one of The 10 Components of Confidence, you know I have to talk about that today! 🙂 Self-love is having a deeply affectionate relationship with yourself. Unfortunately self-love hasn’t really been encouraged over the course of history. We’ve been socially conditioned to think negatively about loving ourselves. Our society has labelled people who love themselves openly as egotistical, vain and selfish. […]
