Are You Setting Smart Weight Loss Goals or Setting Yourself Up for Failure?

"Excuses also either go hand in hand with or like to disguise themselves as, blame. Ever heard someone say, ‘I can’t lose weight because of my genes’, or ‘because of my thyroid’,  That’s someone blaming their circumstances and putting their body out of the realm of their control. While, yes, medically, some things may be more difficult for one body to accomplish when compared to another, that doesn’t mean that it can’t be done.' states Kimberly Spencer, Coach, Writer, and Owner of Crown Yourself."

The Secret to Letting Go of Your Excuses

"Let go of who you are to become who you are meant to be. You 2.0 requires you to eliminate your old excuses. We all make up excuses.

The Secret to Creativity: Free Your Fear

"Creating anything, a film, a novel, a painting, even a character, is freaking scary. When you create, you enter into a new realm, the unknown, which sets off your fear synapses. (Don’t worry, this is a totally healthy, human built-in back up machine that warns us of impending danger.) These same synapses fire when you have that gut instinct to not be alone with a guy, or when you feel like you shouldn’t be walking alone at night on Crenshaw below Jefferson. Totally healthy in life. Not necessarily in creation. Our brains just don’t know the difference."

It's a Man's World, So How Can a Female Write About It? 

"I didn’t set out to write a movie for feminists, or for women. I never even intended to write a “man’s movie.” I especially never intended to write a motocross flick.
