You’re Magical (just like Harry Potter!)

Here’s a not-so-secret secret… I am a huge Harry Potter nerd.

That’s why I got super excited when I realized that Halloween fell on a Friday and I was able to relate a topic to it that allowed me to wear my Harry Potter costume.

Score!

So in today’s video, I’m going to tell you something that me, you and everyone else in the world has in common with Harry Potter.

(as silly as it sounds, this is one of the most important topics we’ve ever covered so make sure to watch)

Make People like You with 1 Simple Trick!

Wanna know the 1 thing you can do to make people like you instantly??

It has nothing to do with what you look like, what you wear, who people think you are.. or any of that nonsense.

It’s actually really super easy and it’s just that not a lot of people do it.

You know when you meet a person and you just know right away whether you like them or not? You probably don’t actually realize what it is they’re doing that makes you want to get to know them better and be their friend.

Getting Things Done (How to do it ALL!)

Do you ever wonder how other moms seem to always be getting things done?

People ask me all the time “How do you do it all?” or “Do you ever sleep?”

Besides having Young Moms Club and SocialLights Video, I also am a Cub Scout Leader, I’m on the school PTO, I have a long distance boyfriend, I’m starting a charity with 7 other moms called TMIVegas, I have a weekly mastermind group, my kids have soccer and gymnastics, my dog has obedience school. And on top of all that, there’s no dad around to help. I’m the only person who takes the kids to and from school and all their activities.

OK after typing it all out, it does seem like a lot.

Should you always use the Father’s Last Name?

In today’s Figure it Out Friday video, I’m answering a question that a viewer named Sarah asked.

So in the video I tell my own thoughts on the matter. I give my personal opinion, as well as some definite rules to follow regardless of personal opinion.

Most of your Thoughts are WRONG!

I don’t know about you, but my mind goes a mile a minute. If I would ever go to a doctor, she’d probably diagnose me with severe ADHD.

I just can’t help it, though. I try to calm the monkey in my mind. I meditate. It helps. But still, I’m constantly being bombarded with random thoughts.. and this is bad for 2 reasons.
