When looking at the things that get in the way of women rising, the fear of visibility is at the top. As women, we’ve been sold a bill of goods since our birth about how women should look and it leads to far too many women into hiding. Today I invited visibility expert, Siddiqui Ray, to dive into this important topic so more women can shine bright. 

Siddiqi Ray is an internationally acclaimed intuitive photographer who captures soulful images that astonish, entertain, and move us. Her vision and talent have earned her opportunities to work with Forbes 100 corporations, Time Magazine, the Associated Press, Mayo Clinic, Target, and Macy's, as well as many global business leaders from Tibet to Australia.

Among the luminaries, she has been hired to photograph include: His Holiness the Dalai Lama, The Kennedy family, Nelson Mandela, and the Navy SEALS in an underwater series.

Siddiqi uses this experience, and her decades of intuitive trained abilities to help her clients overcome their self-limiting fears and inhibitions holding them back from fully expressed photographs that will empower their success in life and business.

Listen to discover: 

  • The fear of being visible and where it comes from
  • The role of narcissism in our culture of endless selfies
  • How to find your sacred ground of authenticity

As a white privileged woman, I have a deep desire (and responsibility) to be an ally to people of color, to be a stand for anti-racism and social justice work. I want my daughters to grow up in a world where healing has occurred and I know that reckoning with my whiteness is a huge part of that work. So I invited my friend and colleague, Rebecca Aced-Molina, to have a conversation about whiteness and her anti-racism work that she specifically does with white women. Rebecca is a life-long seeker of meaning, purpose, and justice. Rebecca has invented her own job since 2000 and today she works with women in leadership positions find their voice, connect with their wholeness, and engage with their deepest purpose as they navigate the waters of race, gender, and inequality.  Rebecca serves on faculty at Leadership that Works, an accredited coach training program, and facilitates a course on interpersonal dynamics at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.  

Listen in and discover: 

  • How ingrained white supremacy is in our culture and subconscious
  • The two camps of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and how we need to bring them together to create change
  • The truth about white guilt and how to begin your inner and outer anti-racism work

Can we tell the TRUTH about mid-life?

Join me and my dear friend, Sam Bennett of www.therealsambennett.com, and let your hair down, get REAL and tell the truth about what's really going on in our lives. It's rare these days and yet SO necessary for our sanity (you feel me?!). We keep it real and talk about the mess and the magic of mid-life.

During today’s episode, we reveal many truths like:

  • How it's time to say BYE BYE to your polite good girl act and start embracing your authentic truth
  • Why you're on FIRE (both literally and metaphorically) and how to own the mastery and confidence you've earned
  • The beauty of feeling the collective and personal rage that's coursing through us and transmute that into power

We also shared more about our upcoming Barefoot Perfect: Belize retreat in February 2020 especially for women in mid-life and beyond that are ready to create the next chapter of their life. Spots are filling and our special Early Bird rate TODAY, 8/21/19, so NOW is the time to apply: www.BarefootPerfect.com.

Here's what we know to be true: You deserve and need a break. Time outside of time. Space for YOU, your dreams, your vision, your life. A time where you don't have to be somebody’s mom, wife, aunt, boss, leader...where you can just be a person walking on the beach. No expectations. No needs. Just you being a woman getting in touch with her truth and making a plan for the next chapter of her life.

As the saying goes, "No one here gets out alive." Our time is limited. Do you feel it?

Do it now (there's no such thing as later).

Let's vow to not take our time here for granted, OK?
