How to get over Embarrassment

Embarrassment. I brought this up in my Group Mentoring a couple weeks ago and it sparked a really great conversation with my students. We try to avoid embarrassment at all cost, but it really holds us back. In this video I share my biggest trick for getting over embarrassment and why we need to be super careful about how we internalize it.

 

 

 

 

 

Healthy Pumpkin Mug Cake

I’m obsessed with this recipe not only because it’s super delicious, but because it’s a single serving. Sometimes when I make cookies I end up eating more than I’d actually like. This is great because it’s quick and preeeetty healthy. #ModernMentor me in your photos if you try it out!
