Why I Love This Picture

The reason I love this photo? I love this photo because I’m the odd one out. I’m clearly the only male.


Here’s one of many examples of what intelligent, creative, intuitive, and passionate women we have all around us. For whatever stupid reason we don’t see enough pictures like this.

Both our recent guests at Turn Out Radio are vibrant leaders doing heartfelt, meaningful work in Toronto. Yasssss ladies! 👊

BTW: The producers of our show? WOMEN. 👊

Our sound engineer? WOMAN. 👊

Our interns and production assistants? WOMEN. 👊

My co-hosts? You guessed it… WOMEN! Who by the way had an idea, teamed up, ***supported each other *** and CREATED a radio show (not a podcast on someone’s laptop- a LIVE STUDIO BROADCAST in an actual radio station) that’s heard across country and globally online.

They literally made sh!t happen.

Who does that? Oh right, WOMEN DO. And fyi, these boss babes tell ME what to do, not the other way around. Sure I share input. But at the end of the day… I know who’s in charge. ♀️♀️♀️

Look Around!

To all the ladies out there, try doubting yourself less and trusting yourself more. Because look around! Clearly you are by far the smarter and more capable species at setting and getting everything you want. Am I right? So keep doing you. Your family needs you. The marketplace needs you. The world definitely needs more YOU.

And bonus: I know it’s rough sometimes, but most times I wouldn’t know because you make it look so damn EASY. If that’s not a reason to roar, I don’t know what is. 💕

Yes Ladies!

I’m totally aware that you don’t need to hear this from me. Yes, I understand you know this already. But I’ve been your supporter for years and gosh damn I’m proud of what you’re capable of! So please forgive me for rooting for you. Is that ok?

And sorry guys… Let’s get our sh!t together and catch up.

So that’s why I love this picture, and why I hope you do too. 👊

The Importance Of Having A Coach

It’s true: People at the top of their game rarely do it alone. They always have the best team pushing and challenging them to new heights.

Since the very beginning, successful people around the world in every field imaginable had coaches in their corner lead them to where they want to go. The truly smart ones know the benefit of keeping coaches around- even when they reach their final destination.

Because there’s ALWAYS more to learn, and there’s always room for improvement.

The right coach has the ability to pull out the best in people by asking the right questions, allowing you to discover the answers, and helping you to see yourself better than you are.

No matter what you do, or plan on doing: Never underestimate the importance of having a coach… the RIGHT coach behind you!

TEACHERS: Why A Little Encouragement Can Do Wonders

Shawn Byfield teaches the next generation of dancers.

Hey teachers, a little encouragement can go a long way!

Never underestimate the power of your words with your students. The words that come out of your mouth matter. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it… But some of it will *actually* stick!

Encouragement is always memorable. So try your best to make sure whatever you DO say, sticks for the right reasons.
