I started With The Contest Queen in April 2008 with no podcast experience. I’ll admit, some of the first shows were awful. Listen at your own risk. Thankfully a good friend, took me aside, gave me some media training and the show became listenable. I hosted a show every two weeks for three years. (more…)

I am not paid to promote every contest I blog about.  Sometimes I come across such an interesting, crazy, weird, or funny giveaway I have to share it. This is one of them.

If you read my first post of 2015 you would know one of my goals is to regain my health. Not only did I begin to see a naturopath, but I started a juice cleanse this week (Reboot With Joe) and followed many of the experts in Food Matters and Hungry For Change. Daniel Vitals is one of those experts. (more…)

 Imagine the Life You’d Love to Live, Then Live It

imagine the life you’d love to live, then live it
52 inspired habits and playful prompts
by Peg Conley

Last year I listened to Robert Ohotto’s podcast Letting Go of the ‘Live Your Best Life’ Lie so when I was offered a chance to review this book I jumped at the chance. As the past several years for me have been tough emotionally and mentally, any tips, tricks or ideas to help me reach my goals are always welcome.

So, did I discover anything to may 2015 my best year yet? Yes I did!

Each of Peg’s 52 ideas are divided into 52 chapters. Many I already do, but some were strong reminders of actions I want to add into my life. Here are my favorite three:

Chapter 4: Meditate, as it’s a daily practice I start and stop. Let’s see if I can ‘make it stick’ this year.

Chapter 12: Write a Letter and Mail it, as I want to add Relationship Marketing via Send-Out-Cards to Idea Majesty’s service offerings.

Chapter 48: Be in Balance. I began this process in 2014 by seeing a naturopath to get my body and health back in balance. The biggest trick will be balancing my time so my priorities are met (my daughter and work) with finding time to contest.

To learn more about imagine the life you’d love to live, then live it, visit the Viva Editions’ website here.

What I will remember from Robert’s podcast as I implement Peg’s ideas into my daily routine, is to not shame myself for where and how I am now, as now is all there is and now is my best life.

Now is your chance to win a copy for yourself.
