Why 4:75 is No Longer an Option

People like to paint rosy pictures for social media, but excuse me while I get real for a second. 4:75 - What does that number mean to you? If you look at it as a win-loss ratio, you'd be sitting at 5% (borderline epic failure). What does it mean to me? It's the number of games Keylen's dad has been able to be at since Key started sports 3 years ago. 4... out of 75.

What if You Were the CEO of You?

Everyone knows the saying "Rome wasn't built in a day." And everyone knows it means that important work takes time. But do you know the second, lesser known part of that quote? It continues, "...but they were laying bricks every hour." Rarely is anything an overnight success.

The Best Protein Doughnuts on the Planet

Unfortunately, doughnuts and fitness do not go hand in hand. I have yet to meet a personal trainer who puts a Krispy Kreme on a meal plan. But alas, not all is lost if you are trying to lose weight, working on your summer body, or just trying to cut down on sweets.

Stop & Read: The Scam that is Rodan + Fields

When the opportunity first came about to join Rodan + Fields, I was polite, but without hesitation, said no. For one, I am not a sales person. Two, I despise network marketing companies (MLMs as they are commonly know), and three, I don't have time. But reasons aside, is Rodan + Fields just another scam? I evaluate...

Social Media + Small Business: A Match Made in Heaven

The power of social media is undeniable. We live in a Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook LIVE happy world, where every moment is captured, shared, analyzed, and talked about. As a small business, it used to be impossible to face off against retail giants. Not anymore. 

Booty Building 101

Working on your summer body is tough. Working on building a booty is arguably even tougher. Larger compound movements, like deadlifts and squats, are essential, as are smaller, more targeted movements, like cable kickbacks, banded side-steps, hip thrusts, and curtsy lunges. So where should a booty building newbie even start?

Tips for Surviving Parent-Teacher Conferences

Four times a year, elementary school teachers nationwide invite doting parents to their classrooms for little afternoon sessions they like to call “Parent Teacher Conferences” (PTCs). Now, I realize most parents probably look forward to these chats; after all, what mother doesn’t like to hear how amazing her child is? But what about the parents with the children who are less than… perfect? How do they feel about PTCs?

While everyone has their own parenting style, certain styles often get more attention than others. One of the more recent, and sometimes controversial styles, is gender-neutral parenting, which encompasses a wide range of beliefs and behaviors. For many millennial moms and dads, gender-neutral parenting often begins with simply saying no to the traditional idea that “blue is for boys and pink is for girls” and yes to the idea of self-expression.
