Stop Sabotaging Your “Black Girl Magic”


In 2018 let’s take our commitment to wellness beyond weight loss and focus on addressing a root cause of our health issues by overcoming what’s sabotaging our best performance – a lack of energy.

Do you often say: 

  • “If I had more time in the day I could (fill in the blank)”
  • “I would exercise but I am too exhausted after I get home from work” or
  • “I am here but I’m too stressed out to enjoy myself” 

Perhaps it’s not a lack of time, ability, or desire – but a lack of energy that won’t let you be great.  The lack of energy is causing too many of us to be unproductive, unfocused, and un-engaged.  Let’s start the new year by discussing how to be effective energy managers to improve our performance – at work, at home and in our communities. 

Join us as we discuss the mindset and thinking that sabotages our best efforts to accomplish our goals.  Whether it’s weight loss, an important project, or being the wife and mom you want to be, all of us have dropped the ball on something important. 

We will share advice and experiences on how to bring your best self to the things that are important to you.  Come away with three keys to maximize your energy for optimal performance so you can have the impact you desire. 

We will also discuss how to address the wellness needs for women of color.  We’ll talk about what’s missing for women of color in the health & wellness market and what type of services can address this need.
