Forbes has released The World’s Most Powerful Women 2013 list and women all around are inspired by these icons to create the lifestyle you desire to lead. From First Lady Michelle Obama to Spanx founder Sara Blakely, it is more than apparent that the sky is the limit to your dream. That being said, here are some pointers for developing your personal empire of power! First off, stop thinking about it and start doing it! Whatever you dream about owning, becoming, creating… now is the best time to finally act upon that dream. Action is the key. Remember to be driven by something else rather than money. Also, make sure you have deep industry knowledge of the area you are interested in participating in. If you’d like to style hair, you should be familiar with top stylist, creative techniques, and trendy coloring. The way to be the best at what you do, is to have understanding of every aspect of your interest. 2013 is the year of the winner- YOU!

Let’s face it busy lifestyles can hurt a healthy wellness. The best way to combat this is to plan ahead. Check out our easy 5 tips to keep you looking good inside and out:
1) Eat Breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day. Try a bowl of healthy cereal paired with fresh fruit and a glass of juice. Eating early on helps to avoid overeating at lunch time.
2) Grab a healthy snack such as granola bars or fruit. Try eating one every 3 hours to help fight the urge to swipe past the vending machine at work.
3) Drink a gallon of water per day. It helps to relieve hunger pains and will fill you up. We recommend drinking water prior to meals to keep portion sizes moderate.
4) Stock up on healthy foods only! That way when you are tempted to grab something on the go it’s a healthy choice as oppose to a quick fix.
5) Think healthy. Even fast food eateries have healthy options and calorie charts to help you make better eating decisions.
