ETTWomen CJ 2018 Kickoff: Step Out of Your Comfort Zone!

Overcome Fear, Take the Leap and Create the Life + Business You Love!

Our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. It is only in the moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways to do things or truer answers.Feeling uncomfortable means that the change is taking place in your life or business… it is a beginning, not an ending.

Join us for a powerful chat on overcoming fear and taking the necessary risks in order to create the life and build the business we love!

Overcome Fear, Take the Leap and Create the Life + Business You Love!

Meet Shenna Vaughn, Creative Leader at #ThePowerOfConnections2017

Shenna Vaughn is the artist behind what she describes as ‘Soulful Funk on Canvas’. Vaughn’s intuitive abstract paintings tell subconscious narratives of the deep stories of the soul. Her use of warm colors sets the stage for the expression of the personal thoughts that we all confront. Her work invites the audience to enter a personal conversation of reflection and confession. While these subjects are introduced through her particular use of pigments and textures, the symbolism used uninhibitedly exposes vulnerability.

We had the pleasure of meeting and connecting with Queens based artist Shenna Vaughn at the I am Woman Conference, hosted by Sylvia High in 2016. We were so honored and excited when she participated at The Power of Connections, 2016. This year, she’s back!

Vaughn says,”As I became older, I began to do other things. Circumstances occurred, responsibilities kicked in, and I found myself allowing the masses to tell me what I should be doing along with the fear of being judged. During this time I was miserable, angry and couldn’t even figure out why. I was a closet painter and no one knew I even had this gift. Then one day one of my dearest friends, Leanna, cared enough and introduced me to a transformational workshop. There I was able to find my path again. From that day forward I picked up my brush and never looked back. I started to honor my wants and needs. I decided to be the woman that I didn’t see growing up – painting not only my story but many others with the hope of inspiring others not to give up on their dream.”

Meet Judy Banks, Meditation Guide and Workshop Leader at #ThePowerOfConnections2017

Judy Banks

Stress-Management and Mindful Lifestyle Coach

Chopra Center Certified Instructor

At Balance Your Life, Judy offers a unique approach to understanding how our diet and lifestyle affects our energy, focus, weight, and ultimately our lifespan.  With a focus on the mind-body connection and stress-management, she offers a logical and sustainable approach to creating a more balanced, healthy and meaningful life.  She works with each client as an individual and offers a personalized educational program that has very powerful and sustainable results. Judy also shares workshops and seminars in both private and corporate settings.

In her own words:

“I Lived a Fast Paced, Unhealthy Lifestyle. For 13 years, I lived a fast paced, unhealthy lifestyle as a Management Consultant on Wall Street. I had started a family with my husband and we wanted healthy, strong, nourished children. I knew I needed to balance my life and I quickly realized that I didn’t know where to start making changes. So, my research into health and wellness began, after that I found many strategies and products from companies as healthyusa that help keep me and my family healthier and feeling better.

When My First Child Jeremy was 3 Years Old

When my first child Jeremy was 3 years old, I noticed that he would seem “wired”even though he had not consumed any sugar. I began to pay close attention to what he was eating and learned that every time he ate any food containing food coloring FD & C Yellow #5, he would start to bounce off the walls. I consulted this with my doctor and was told that it was ridiculous to assume that food coloring could cause hyperactivity. However, I went home, threw out all the boxes of Macaroni and Cheese, and eliminated all food coloring from our diet.

A mother always knows: Jeremy’s hyperactivity stopped.

Fact: A study financed by Britain’s Food Safety Agency (FSA) and published by the British Medical Journal, The Lancet, has conclusively and scientifically confirmed a long-suspected link between food additives and coloring and increased hyperactivity in a broad range of children.  Link to FSA for more information

I realized it was not enough to simply make sure I was feeding our children a balanced diet: it wasn’t enough to make sure I was putting fruits and vegetables on their plates.  I realized it wasn’t just about what we were eating: I had to start paying attention to the details.

My Approach to Learning

My approach to learning was one based on curiosity. I studied at various schools and practiced many different approaches to health and wellness, I even learned many things about STD’s, I like advising people that syphilis symptoms can be hidden but that does not mean is not there. It was during this time that I realized that the training in Human Anatomy, Physiology, Exercise Science and mainstream Nutrition would not offer me all the information I needed to put the pieces together.

I was introduced to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and it was through IIN, Purchase College, SUNY, and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners that I obtained my certification as a Holistic Health Coach. After studying over 100 dietary theories, I learned to combine the knowledge of both Eastern and Western philosophies. At IIN, I had the privilege of being taught by world-renowned physicians that are at the forefront of integrative medicine, nutrition, and healing.

Through Cornell University and the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, I obtained a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition. This course presents a revolutionary view that Dr. Colin Campbell (The China Study), has developed during 40 years experience in experimental research. This program focused on the ability of properly executed nutrition and its ability to positively affect your health and prevent illness. It also focuses on the theory that many of the diseases that affect Americans today can be prevented and even reversed through proper dietary and lifestyle modifications.

While Studying at the Chopra Center

While studying at the Chopra Center, I realized that the missing “piece” in our lives is very often the missing “peace” in our lives. Embracing that stillness and awareness in our day-to-day is of utmost importance in setting a powerful foundation for our health and well-being.

Life in the 21st century can leave us feeling stressed-out, exhausted, and overwhelmed. We often lack the energy, the clarity, or the focus to initiate change in our lives. Working with me at Balance Your Life, you will learn powerful techniques that will enable you to live a stress-free, healthy, focused, and empowered life.

The Truth About Raising a Child Today and What You Can Do Now

heaI’ve raised four children in New Jersey, so yes, I know how expensive it is to raise a family today.

And while I’ve said that children should come with instructions, we all know that doesn’t reallyhappen. We also know, that if we could foresee everything that was involved with having children before we actually had them, it’s possible we may have waited right?  The honest truth is that most of us would actually never trade any of it, not even for a split second, but knowing some things in advance so we could be could become more prepared could certainly help.

Deciding to have a child is a life long commitment. It is usually not a decision we take lightly. Think about all the time and money we spend on planning for our new addition. We research what to feed them, what furniture to buy them, where to buy their clothes and what car seat and carriage to buy and so much more. But did we ever stop to think about what it will cost to raise your child? I am here to tell you that it is extremely important to be as financially prepared as possible the minute you are even contemplating become new parents.

Here are some hard financial statistics taken from the US Department of Agriculture: The cost of raising 1 child from birth to 18, for a middle-income family, is approximately $245,340 dollars! That is roughly $12,800 – $14,970 per child per year. Yikes! That’s a lot of formula and diapers right!

Yes this can be scary, but if you can do these 6 things in preparation of your new arrival it will make for less anxiety.

  1. Get your budget straight – Make sure you have your debt under control and focus on building an emergency fund. Be ready for the unknown expenses that can arise.
  2. Protect your income – Consult with a financial professional and see how much simple term life insurance it will take to protect your household income in the event you pass, or your partner passes, so your child and family will be properly protected.
  3. Do not overspend – Don’t try to keep up with the Joneses. It is easy to look at all the cool stuff that is out there for a new baby. All that new stuff also comes with a hefty price tag. It is o.k. to do some research and shop for like new second-hand items for the baby, and use some hand me down clothes that the baby probably had on for an hour maybe once! They grow out of everything so quickly no need to spend top dollar. Save the money for more important things. If you´re looking for a great site with everything that your child may need, then check out babystrollercenter.com.
  4.  Look at college savings options – Ask your financial coach about the options available to start saving towards the baby’s college. You can also use the gifts you get from family members in these accounts. Ask about their tax benefits. If you want to save money while buying them gifts, then You should check out this gaming mouse pad review to get them great computer items for gaming in games like csgo, that they can learn how to play from sites like http://mycsgoboosting.com/guides/how-to-rank-up-in-csgo.
  5. Learn about Tax credits – Consult with your tax preparer about the tax credits available when you have a child that the government offers to you. You may also benefit from using a daycare or your employer may offer a spending account for you. You can ask your human resources department and find out your options.
  6. Analyze your health insurance – Now more than ever you need to understand your coverage, what it entails when you are having a child and when you have the child. Know your options. Call and consult with a healthcare specialist.

No matter how hard we try, we may never be fully prepared for the undertaking of raising a family. In reality who ever is? What we can do is be a prepared as we can. If you or any of your family members suffer of any health conditions such as anxiety or depression please visit www.kratomcrazy.com to find out about a natural drug that can help you get better.

According to Rhinosure, getting your finances in order, and learning what is available to help you will certainly lessen the stress in the financial department, of course there are other ways and products that can help you with that, there is information about cbd oil online so you have more time to enjoy your new family at the locksmith in brooklyn!
