She’s married to Jesse Itzler…but what a message …
Problems are a constant in life. Some are more challenging than others. They come daily, weekly, monthly… they are always there. It’s part of the admisson price for being human. Once in my 20s I was so consumed by a problem my grandfather said he was going to take me to a place where people had no problems. He drove me to a graveyard. We sat there in the car and I just stared quietly at all the tombstones. I got the message loud and clear. The alternative to no problems was death so be grateful for your problems. I used to think happiness could only occur in the absence of problems. This thought is a recipe for never being happy. A great opportunity in life is to learn how to be happy despite your problems. And the other great opportunity is to learn when to let them go.

“Someone gave me a Visa gift card for my birthday. I love gift cards, but what I don't love is the money that I could use elsewhere being stuck on a gift card, so I used my hack to put that money in a bank account instead.
Here's a post from my blog describing how I did it.

Ready to discuss Wednesday, 7pm EST?
Interesting and empowering read …
If someone can walk away from you, let them go.
Don't beg people to stay in your life, be your friend, love you, care about you, or want to be with you.
When a person is really for you, they'll do all of these things without coercion, convincing, or begging.
There shouldn't be conditions to someone’s interest in you.
When someone makes you an option, help them narrow down their choices by deleting yourself from the equation.
They have time, you're just not a priority.
How you allow yourself to be treated, uncared for, left behind, cheated on, used, abused, manipulated, and taken advantage of is a direct reflection of your self-worth.
When you have no self-worth, you don't believe you deserve better from people.
You devalue yourself when you chase people and allow them to walk all over you like a doormat.
Know your worth and unapologetically put people in their place.
Don't be cute about it, make sure they know what's not going to be allowed or accepted.
Get rid of and delete anyone that has a blatant disregard for you, your life, and your worth.
Show them the door and kick them in the ass on the way out.
Understand that how a person treats you is a reflection of who they are not a reflection of who you are.
Don't ever take it personal, it's not about you.
However, leave people alone to do the pathetic things they do.
You will never find your worth in other people.
You must find it within.
When you view yourself as valuable, so will the rest of the world.
