SPOTLIGHT: Melanie Wolff

There is something to be said about a woman's confidence and how it translate in the clothing she wears. When you walk into a room, sometimes how you carry yourself can be directly reflected in whether or not you feel good in what you are wearing! 

This is why I love the work of Melanie Wolff, a personal stylist who owns Your Confident Style. 

When Melanie first landed in the LIGHTbeamers Community, she was struggling to find her own confidence with being more visible and sharing her offerings to a larger audience. Putting some of her own advice to work, she started showcasing her style tips and putting on her best outfits to make herself feel more energized about getting Visible! 

And she really dove head first into Video -- showing up weekly during our Wednesday Live sessions to get more comfortable on camera! 

And it has all paid off! 

Today, Melanie has a thriving business and a growing social media presence helping other women dress with confidence.

SPOTLIGHT: Reaiah Rose Cubero

One of the best parts of the Lightbeamers Community is to see a woman burst onto the scene and then watch her rise!

Reaiah Cubero of ReeCreation Ministries first showed up during one of our Wednesday livestream days — she appeared quiet, nervous, unsure, yet concretely determined.

She stuck with it.

Week after week her confidence grew and her gorgeous storytelling unfolded.

SPOTLIGHT: Susan Tomlinson

BRAND NEW FEATURE SEGMENT 
I'm thrilled to bring you a brand new feature to LIGHTbeamers -- a monthly community spotlight highlighting the story and journey of one of our resident LIGHTbeamers. 

INTRODUCING Susan Tomlinson
Susan first stepped into the spotlight at LIGHTbeamers during one of our annual storytelling challenges in the Fall of 2019. Immediately following the challenge, Susan joined our VIP membership, the Visibility Accelerator. 

What I noticed about Susan right away was her tenacity and consistency.
She was eager to learn, and willing to share her story! Every single month since she joined, Susan has showed up for every group strategy call and she's participated in all of our quarterly challenges and ongoing story prompts. I'm so impressed by her willingness to try things new and take action! 

I love an action taker -- and Susan is an action taker!

When I first had the idea to start these monthly Spotlight features, Susan immediately came to mind...

Simply Begin

Today I have a message for you that is so simple, but it's one that I keep chanting to myself as a mantra, so I want to share it with you and that is simply begin. Now. Once upon a time I set out on a huge goal with a group of friends to train for a 50 mile trail run. We trained over the summer and we often hit the trails of the mountains in North Carolina in the blazing heat. The training runs were always long and hard and brutal, but in the end they were worth it because we climbed for hours in that hot blazing sun all working towards that moment when we would hit the summit and take in the gorgeous views that were at the top of those mountains.


Now I use that memory whenever I'm feeling stuck or feeling fearful about taking on a new challenge because trust me, when I set out to train for a 50 mile trail run, I wasn't even a good runner. This was not...

What Will Others Think?

 

Listen to our daily blog-casts on Amazon. Enable our "What's Your Story" daily flash briefing and listen using your Alexa device!

I’ve been thinking a lot about how much people STOP themselves from doing things that are stirring in their heart.

They stay quiet & hidden for fear of judgement from others. That simple question or thought — what will others think — can be so damaging and toxic if you let it stop you from moving forward in life or business.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The people who are ahead of you, those who are making waves and playing big, aren’t going to judge you!

Nope! They’ll see you and say, “You go girl! I know what it takes to get here and you are being so bold & brave! I commend you. Here’s my hand. Grab it! I’ll pull you along.”

So the judgement you fear is about the people behind you; the ones NOT stepping up their own life in new & exciting ways but rather playing small and sitting...

It's time women take back their power by owning their financial future!

This is an important topic for every woman on the planet. 

We are diving deep into this today with Nicholle Overkamp -- Founder & CEO of Wilcox Financial Group.

A Mantra To Keep You Going

 
 
A Mantra To Keep You Going
"Simply Begin"..... I keep chanting this to myself as a mantra.
 
Once upon a time, I set a huge goal with a group of friends to train for a 50 mile trail run.  We trained over the Summer, and often hit the trails of the mountains in North Carolina. The training runs were always long and hard.... but in the end, worth it. We'd climb for hours in the hot blazing sun, all working towards that moment when we'd hit the summit and take in the gorgeous views. 
 
I use those memories whenever I'm feeling stuck or feeling fearful about taking on a new challenge. I remind myself to #simplybegin
 
Sometimes, I want all the answers before I begin. Anyone else with me?
 
I want to know the "how".... but all we really need to know is our WHY -- why do we want this? Why is it important? Why does...

Do you have a vulnerability hangover?

There’s a little-known side-effect to sharing your story that not a lot of people talk about — so let’s talk about it! 

For a lot of people, the idea of having other people look at them, hear them, and observe them is truly unnerving. Think back to your school years, the courage it took sometimes to raise your hand in class and answer a question. All of the other students in the classroom would turn and look at you while you spoke. 

Or, if you ever had to get up in front of the classroom to make a presentation — you likely felt like a ball of nerves.

As we grow up, that stuff doesn’t necessarily go away — it just manifests into a whole different type fear and feeling. I call it a Vulnerability Hangover. 

Part of learning how to share your story is learning...
