Your Story: Surviving Childhood Abuse

This story is not fictional. The woman who shared this story with me, did so in order to let anyone else who has experienced what she has gone through that you can not only survive, but create a new life and thrive. As a disclaimer, the identity of the person I spoke to has been protected, […]

Dealing With The Fear Of Creating Your Own Brand

The scariest thing I ever did was start my brand, Push Factor. I knew what I wanted, but I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. I was scared out of my mind, and if it wasn’t for Tim, the brand strategist extraordinaire who helped me create my brand, I would […]

The Painful Perils of Persistent Pessimism!

You know what I’ve learnt from most millennials? (That’s anyone born after 1988). Optimism, and anything to do with positive thinking, is for suckers. Suckers with no life, no game, and absolutely no swag! (Am I allowed to use ‘swag’ in 2015?) It is waaayyy more cooler to be a skeptic. A cynic. A pessimist, who […]

5 Destructive Habits You Must STOP In 2015!

A few days ago, I wrote a posted a simple question on reddit. I asked, “What is depressing you today?” I received a flood of comments; people who are suffering from depression, who are close to losing their jobs, who have lost their jobs and are facing evictions, who have sky high credit-card and student […]

Why Being Openly Defiant Keeps Me Sane

I have always had an aggressive streak. I’ve had temper problems and been rude… you name it, I’ve been it. I haven’t always been a nice person. During the height of my “issues” back in 2008 and 2009, my father described me as “constantly argumentative.” I have mellowed out over the years of course, and […]

Remove the clutter from your life

GET RID OF THE CLUTTER!

I have to admit, I have been seriously off track for the last couple of weeks. I will be honest that I still have self-sabotage eating at the routines that I diligently created for the past year. I am not immune to self-sabotage. In fact, it has been with me for decades. When you spend […]

Push Factor Saturday: NO JUDGE ZONE!

“Why wait to have  resolutions at the beginning of the year? Why not set your goals right now?” ~ Kenneth Muriithi This last PF Saturday that took place on the 18th of October was very special to me. It was intimate and very relaxed, and that was what made it so magical for me. I […]

New Video: Let’s Talk About The “F” Word!

I had a wonderful Skype call this last week with a great friend of mine about failure. It boggles my mind how crazy and warped our views are on failure. There is this impossible expectation we have created for ourselves that when things go wrong, it is our fault and it is a horrible thing, as though […]
