Introducing: The Life Haul Masterclass with Myleik Teele (RSVP Now!)


When I was maybe 8 or so years old, I was obsessed with turning 16. I would walk through the mall with my mom and snotty-nosed little sister, staring at all the teenage girls that passed by, mesmerized by their cool clothes (they can wear heels!), lip gloss (they can wear makeup!) and the fact they got to wear their hair down. (My mom kept me in my sister in french braids, but I digress…) Not to mention, 16 was the age my mom promised I could (1) drive a car and (2) MAYBE even have a boyfriend. (*Gasp*!) Maybe…

Though I’m now a decade past that golden age (man I feel old!), I still get that starry-eyed, butterflies-in-stomach feeling when I imagine myself one day reaching the same level of success as many of the entrepreneurial women I look up to.

Myleik Teele, CEO of the über-popular natural hair subscription, Curlbox, is one such woman.

Though her brand savvy alone is admirable as she’s grown Curlbox from an idea into a cult following in just a few short years, Myleik is personally inspiring to me not just for her moves but her mind.

Myleik is sharp. Hands down. When I first discovered her podcast — a collection of her best personal and professional advice for 4 years and counting — I think I listened to them all in one day. Twice. And then I really geeked out and took notes.

So you can only imagine my excitement to tell you that Ms. Mentor-in-Everyone’s-Head will be joining me this weekend for a live video chat to end all video chats.

Yes, you read that correctly. Join me and Myleik this Sunday, January 25, 2015 from 8pm – 9pm EST for the first ever Life Haul Masterclass: A Goal-Setting Google Chat with Myleik Teele, CEO of Curlbox.

During this Live Google Hangout, Myleik will share what it really takes to overhaul your life and achieve success in 2015. If you feel stuck in life or just feel unsure about which next step to take, this is an event you do not want to miss.

While Myleik has done other interviews before, my goal with this chat is to dig deep and get to the root of Myleik’s success habits and mindset. When it’s all said and done, I want you to walk away more than just motivated…I want you to walk away with the tools you need to MAKE. THINGS. HAPPEN.

So what do you have to do to participate in this illustrious affair? Simple…

RSVP for the event by clicking here.

When you RSVP, make sure to leave a question for Myleik. In the latter half of the chat, Myleik will answer a few audience questions but only if you leave one ahead of time.

Additionally, everyone who RSVPs and leaves a question for Myleik to answer before the event will be entered to win a print copy of my brand new goal-setting workbook, Get What You Want: The Ultimate Guide to Figuring Out + Getting What You Want in Life.

And if that weren’t incentive enough (Wait! There’s more!), if you note in your question that you live in the Atlanta-area (you can just add “ATL” somewhere in your question), you’ll be entered to win a free ticket to my upcoming, entrepreneurship workshop, Launch Your Life Atlanta: A Business and Life Strategy Masterclass for Women Entrepreneurs.


I think that’s enough excitement for one day, no? If you’ll be joining us, make sure you RSVP and leave a question (add “ATL” somewhere in your question if you live in Atlanta).

See you this Sunday!

How to Get What You Want: The Workbook

GWYW Cover

Do you know what you want?

What you really, really want?

(Re-read that again and try not to hear The Spice Girls in your head this time…)

Four years ago, I wanted to overhaul my entire life.

I had big dreams and goals — I wanted to get out of credit card debt, get my spending under control (so I would no longer be ashamed of my bank account!), get back in the gym, start eating a healthy diet, redo my entire wardrobe in a stylish but budget friendly way, and most of all, grow my online presence so I could start my own successful business doing what I loved.

The only problem was I had no idea where to start! There were so many different self-help books, blogs, and “gurus” to choose from that I didn’t know who to listen to. I would sit in Barnes & Nobles for HOURS trying to read through all the material, only to leave (without any books, mind you, since I was broke) more confused about what I needed to do.

After years of not finding the information I needed to truly change my life, I had enough! I was tired of each year passing me by with my dreams no more closer to coming true than they were the year before. I figured if all the “guru” advice was just going to leave me more lost than when I started, I decided I would come up with a strategy on my own. By taking the best of what I had learned over the years and combining it with my own trial and error, I ended up stumbling on a process that since then has radically changed my life.

By following this simple yet profound goal-setting process, in a few short years I’ve since been able to:

  • Pay off three (3!) over-the-limit credit cards and save $1,000…in a little over ONE YEAR…all while going to school full-time and working as a college intern making $14/hour!
  • Go from nearly flunking out of college to graduating Summa Cum Laude with a 3.8 GPA.
  • Secure a high profile, top-paying job at a large and well-known U.S. corporation…before I even graduated college! (I was offered the position in September of my senior year)
  • Permanently kick my habit of eating McDonald’s nearly everyday (the two cheeseburgers for $2 combo was my favorite) and start eating a healthy, unprocessed, mostly organic diet.
  • Lean out and tone up my entire body my lifting weights and going to the gym 4-5 days every week.
  • Take my love of personal development and public speaking and turn it into a training and development company for women.
  • Grow my blog from a site that maybe got 100 hits a day to community of readers all over the world that gets viewed nearly 30,000 times per month! (I still can’t believe this one…)

So just what is this process? How did I do it? I’m so glad you asked! ;-) I share the EXACT process I used (and still use) to achieve my biggest goals in my new workbook, Get What You Want: The Ultimate Guide to Figure Out + Getting What You Want in Life.

In this 50-page workbook, I share my “secret” to actually getting what you want in life. To make it convenient, I’ve broken the workbook to 3 modules:

Module 1: Discovering What You Want


In this module, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify what YOU want over what friends, family, and even strangers want for you.
  • What your “perfect day” says about who you are and what you want out of life
  • How to turn what frustrates you into fuel for your your dreams

Module 2: Visualizing What You Want


In this module, you’ll learn:

  • How to craft long- and short-term visions for your future
  • How to develop a vision for each area of your life and turn it into concrete goals
  • How to determine which goals you should work on first

Module 3: Getting What You Want


In this module, you’ll learn:

  • How to break your goals down into manageable chunks
  • How to create an action plan that ensures you do the right things everyday
  • How to set regular benchmarks and make every week a successful week

I’ve designed this workbook as something you can (1) start at ANY time (not just January 1!) and (2) refer back to throughout the year. By the time you’re done with this workbook, you will have a clear idea of what you want AND an even clearer roadmap on how to get there.

While a detailed, activity-packed workbook easily costs anywhere from $30, $40, or even $50, I wanted to make this accessible to you because I genuinely want to help you get what you want in life. To celebrate the launch of this bad boy (Whew! I feel like I’ve been working on it forever!), you can get both the digital and print versions on sale price for a limited time:

[PODCAST] Lessons Learned: The Top 7 Lessons I’m Taking into 2015


2014 was, above all, a great year of learning for me. I learned so much about myself and what is possible if you’re willing to push for what you believe.

While it would require a month’s worth of blog posts to share everything I learned in 2014, today I’m boiling it down to the top 7 lessons I’m taking with me in 2015. Check out today’s podcast to find out what they are:

What were the top lessons you learned last year? What wisdom are you taking into 2015?

Need to Build Self-Discipline? Introducing: #NoExcusesJanuary


2015 is here! So you know what that means…New Years Goals!

Have you created your vision board yet? Written out all your goals? Found that perfect planner? Bought that perfect little notebook with the world most inspiring quote written on the cover? Organized all your sharpie pens by color, thickness, and metallic shimmer?

Okay, maybe you aren’t that OCD when it comes to getting ready for the New Year (well, my accountability partner is but that’s besides the point…) but regardless of what you do, I want to make sure you don’t forget one of the most important factors for your success this year. What’s that you ask? Oh you know…just a little something called…


Yup. Out of all the social media and blog posts I’ve seen online about crushing it in 2015, no one has mentioned self discipline! You can write out the most inspiring, perfectly color-coordinated goals in the world, but if you don’t have self-discipline, you can forget about it this year.

Now I’m not saying this to crush anybody’s dreams. I’m saying this because for 4 years straight (2010-2014) I failed to reach most of my yearly goals because I hadn’t yet built the self-discipline necessary to achieve them. I used to think success was all about goal-setting, but like a car needs gas, without self-discipline it’s difficult to go very far. 2014 was the first year in a long time that I truly felt in control of my ability to make things happen. But that came after a lot of self-reflection, internal work, and most importantly, PRACTICE, in building up my self-discipline.

To help you build up your self-disciplinee, I’ve create a 21-day challenge hereby dubbed #NOExcusesJanuary!

The challenge is design to do just what the name suggests: help you overcome your excuses! Overcoming excuses is important because if there’s one thing I’ve learned about self-discipline (and why some people have a lack of it), it’s that you have to honor the commitments you make to yourself. I talk about this more in-depth in my podcast, The #1 Key to Becoming a Self-Disciplined Person, but your “subconscious self” (also known as that “little voice in the back of your head”) remembers all the times you said you would do something but didn’t follow through. As a result, the next time you set out to do something, you find that you are unmotivated and/or self-sabotaging your ability to do it because there’s a part of you that does not trust that you will do what you say.

If you want to be successful this year, you need to build a new, positive track record of honoring your self-commitments. This habit of repeatedly honoring your word to yourself is what we refer to as “self-discipline.”

With this in mind, I’ve designed No Excuses January as challenge to guide you in successfully sticking to your word for 21 days straight. Last night I hosted a self-discipline Q&A on Google Hangouts where I gave more information about the challenge and how to join. Check it out: (jump to 33:40 if you want to skip straight to the #NoExcusesJanuary Challenge info)
