And How it’s Changed Everything By Motivational Keynote Speaker Connie Podesta This vacation was my best ever. I did nothing. We didn't sightsee. I didn't learn anything new. I didn't read anything non-fiction. I literally -- did nothing productive! I read a romance novel. Drank mint and cucumber water. Watched Netflix. Had a crunchy salad. Walked along the ocean. Meditated. Had a watermelon salad. Snuggled. Snacked. Watched the sunset. Had a great white wine. Walked some more. Ate wonderful seafood. Slept. And slept some more. Floated in the ocean. Had a fresh fruit smoothie. Got a
How to Create More Time to Focus on What Really Matters While Ditching the Guilt! With Motivational Keynote Speaker Connie Podesta In a world that’s spinning at about 1,000 miles an hour (and 1,000 things at once) for most women, that whole elusive concept of ‘Life Balance’ seems like quite the slippery slope!

by Motivational Speaker Connie Podesta One of the topics I’m asked to talk about most these days is CHANGE. How to manage it, cope with it and more importantly leverage it in a world that’s spinning faster than is comfortable for most. That’s why I wanted to reach out to some of my wonderful friends and share a few secrets I’ve learned along the way with their readers. After all – we’re all in this together right? Why not help each other out? All right – if you’re ready, let’s get down to it… Let’s face it -- Business as usual IS over. The game has changed and the rules are different.
by Motivational Speaker Connie Podesta All Right - Just Quit It! Stop trying to fill every minute with something to do. Don’t confuse simple contentment with BOREDOM. Listen, we all probably can agree that it’s a fast-paced, go-go-go world that we live in. The demands are high and the time management is a MUST. Don’t miss this thought though…You MUST also make time for YOURSELF. A walk in the evening, lunch with a friend, 30 minutes with your favorite book, watching a TV show you enjoy, listening to music, or just sitting on your favorite spot just thinking about nothing…these are all

by Motivational Speaker Connie Podesta When was the last time you did something you've never done before and then wondered why it took so long for you to discover this new experience? I just went to a yoga class and my body is asking why I didn't do this a LONG time ago. Don't get me wrong. I exercise (although not as much as I should.)
