The empower blog

To be the best version of ourselves, we sometimes need to get out of our own way. This blog is about fulfilling our own potential, while realistically dealing with hurdles along the way. I share practical yet inspiring steps that have improved my personal life and career. Everyone can live with energy, positivity, and purpose. You deserve it!

The naturals blog

Welcome! I created this blog to share my steps towards becoming more health-conscious and environmentally-friendly. My goal is to find small changes that reduce effort, expenses, and clutter. I share tips, food, and products that create a more eco lifestyle without giving up any of the comforts of modern life. Simple is easy.

The books

I’m always surprised at how freely people talk, given an ear to listen. From this, I often find myself offering advice to friends and family. Over the years, I’ve searched for answers, noted the best mantras, and tried them out in practice. It’s time to consolidate these findings and send them back out into the world to share.


If you can’t put it in you, then you shouldn’t put on you.

I’ve always believed in this saying, but what does this actually mean? What does daily life look like for someone who truly believes this? I had always acknowledged this belief, but I never took the next steps to put it to action. I finally started listening to my body and gradually substituting or eliminating unhealthy products.

Home is where the heart is.

I also believe in this saying, although I often think of it as, “home is where the fuzz is” (cue those snuggly blankets). Eventually, my understanding of this phrase grew. I learned that everything is where the heart is, including happiness.

As more people started coming to me for advice, I decided that I wanted to share the goodwill far and wide. There’s too much happiness, opportunities, and success in the world for me to keep it all to myself. I believe that we’re here for a reason, and that reason is to make the world a better place.

Rise to the challenge

How high can you go?


Why two blogs?

I see two different approaches to personal well-being: internal and external. The Naturals Blog involves what you take from the world; the Empower Blog involves what you give back to the world. It’s all a cycle where your internal well-being affects your external impact, but not everyone is ready for both journeys at the same time. Here’s a quick summary:
