and Collaborate.

You want to know what else is sexy? Being generous, creative and intuitive. My friend, Stephanie Wood Miller, a 20 year marketing expert for many Fortune 500 companies, decided that the competitive nature of women in business is not sexy. She created an amazing company called Wisdom Of The Kitchen, a place where collaboration and generosity rule! Please join her for an exciting event in Los Angeles on November 13.

I think this is going to be a really unique experience. 300 women will be getting together to discover our collective power as women. A portion of your registration will be used as a microgrant for you to spend on a few businesses that will present their plans to the group. You can then determine how you would like to contribute to help the selected businesses to grow. There will also be a panel of speakers and a group activity to generate a new revenue stream for participants. The idea behind the day is to see what’s really possible for us, women.

Even Madonna Has Her Moments


There is a ‘sexy’

Yesterday was one of those days…where ‘sexy’ was the opposite of how I was feeling. I could barely sleep the night before and had a fuse the length of a pinhead. I was tired and drabby and got about 15% of the things on my to-do list done. Brushing my hair and dealing with my appearance were the last things on my mind. At some point during the day, I decided to do a brief meditation and get perspective. I knew this feeling was a passing lapse of ‘ick,’ yet I couldn’t snap out of it for hours. During my contemplation, I remembered witnessing a familiar feeling in another women two days before, another woman who happens to be a gorgeous, A-list celebrity who takes fabulous care of herself and looks 20 years younger than her age. Celeb ‘X’ regularly attends a yoga class I go to in LA. After class, some of the women were talking in a small group. Miss ‘X’ was expressing her feelings of frustration and sadness due to conflicts with her significant other, causing her to feel heavy and low. She told the story with such genuine transparency, just as any friend would. I stood there in awe. It felt like such a gift to hear this woman, who is put on a high pedestal in the media, share her humble experience as a normal human being.

in “unsexy.”

This must have been the theme of the week because the day before that I was sitting in a workshop for women entrepreneurs and learning the same lesson in a different way. The instructor was teaching tips for how to deal with failures, mistakes and set-backs. She quoted a multimillionaire CEO who tells
his clients to say the words “I’m so sexy” to themselves every time they fall off the wagon.
The reason he says this is to bring humor our imperfections that actually make us PERFECTLY human. A neat and tidy upward slope of growth and improvement is flat out impossible and would be boring. In reflecting on this, I was able to laugh at myself a bit. Just because many of us are getting better at taking care of ourselves and our bodies doesnt’ mean it’s always a flawless proces. Next time you take a little dip, why not try it? Say to yourself “I’m so sexy.” See if it changes your perspective?

“I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful. So unloved for someone so fine. I can feel so boring for someone so interesting. So ignorant for someone of sound mind”

“What’s Up Down There?”

September 24, 2010

This week, I came across a diamond of a book titled “What’s Up Down There: Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend” that is seconds away from it’s BIG launch. The author, Dr. Lissa Rankin MD is a sassy gynecologist, artist and womens’ wellness care provider. Of course, I pre-ordered the book and immediately contacted Lissa that day. I also realized that the picture on the cover has a mirror over the pubes of the illustrated female figure. I shared peeka-bu with her and we bonded over email immediately. On a personal level, she is super cool, but the reasons Dr. Lissa Rankin is my new She-Hero go far beyond my words.

For some, a lot more that you’d ever imagine.

I read this excerpt on Amazon.com and was bubbling up with tears of laughter and compassion. Rankin tells a story about an emergency room run for a woman named Mildred, who is notorious for using her vagina like a purse, literally. “She then proceeded to pull down her pants and began yanking things out of her vagina like it was Mary Poppins’ magic carpet bag (or, in this case, carpet box). There was a plastic baggie of pills, a wad of bills a tube of lipstick, a pen. Half expecting Mildred to pull out a red scarf that magically turns into a bouquet of flowers, I was on the verge of busting out laughing when I suddenly realized that there was something very wrong with this picture.”

What was wrong with it is that Lissa recognized this woman went through some tragic experiences at a young age that made her hate her lady parts enough to use them for a completely different purpose. Sure, it’s an extreme example, and sounds like an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, but you get the point. The time is now to stop shutting off from essential parts of who we are and learn to tools to help us create a more loving relationship with all areas of our bodies.

What are you going to do today to take this step? Are there parts that you feel uncomfortable with and could treat better? I invite you to do some investigation–and share this with your friends! I know what I am going to do. I’m going to read the rest of this book.

Cheers.
