Last month, I had the privilege of sharing my talk “The value of Beauty” at an incredible event where myself and 7 other Las Vegas woman speakers took the stage to share the message of “I am Enough!”
Initially, I was going to construct a speech around young moms, similar to the TEDxWomen talk I gave last year.
For some reason though, it was really weighing on my heart to give a speech around a different topic. One that when I really thought about why “I am enough” seemed like a really important message to share and something that almost every other woman could relate to in some way or another.
I had a lot of resistance to giving this speech. The idea of people thinking that I’m shallow because I’m talking about “The Value of Beauty“. I had some feelings of shame come up when imagining speaking about how I used my looks to get through a large part of my life. I thought “What if people think I’m a bitch when I admit that I happily “used” men to get what I wanted?” [click to continue…]
Now that I’m approximately 1/2 way finished with writing my first book and feel like I’ve gotten the hang of it, I think that I have enough knowledge to teach others how they can write the first half of their own how-to/self-help book.

I haven’t posted in quite a while here and that’s not good because as I’ve said in previous blog posts, this is the web space that kinda keeps me sane.
This is the only place where I don’t have a “target market”, don’t have to watch what I write as to not piss anyone off or fear that my unorthodox opinions will make people hate me.
I haven’t posted in a minute because I’ve been focusing on YoungMomsClub.com, planning the Tribal Truth Speaks event and writing my first book that I hope to have finished by the end of the year.
Well now, the Tribal Truth event is less than 2 weeks away and I’m stoked!
It’s been quite a learning experience and thankfully I had 4 of my tribe sisters step up to be part of the committee and they’ve been amazing.
Along with planning the event, I’m also going to be a speaker.
My initial idea was to do a speech about Teenage Motherhood, similar to my TEDxWomen talk.
But after really thinking about the theme of the event “I am enough”, I just felt really called to speak about society’s views of beauty.
So in my speech, “The value of beauty”, I’ll be sharing my learning experiences around my personal stories of being valued for my beauty, how I accidentally learned to manipulate men and ultimately got sick of not being valued for my inner beauty.
If you’re in Las Vegas on May 18, 2013, I’d love to have you come to the event!
It’s going to be such an eye-opening, powerful day. The other speakers and performers are just incredible. I’m so amazing by these women who have all come together and opened themselves up truthfully and vulnerably to create this piece of art. This is really something you don’t want to miss.
