My Top 5 Role Models for Building my Dream Life and Business.

Hello my Lovelies!!  :)

Today I am going to share my top 5 people who inspire me everyday!  These people are my role models, my gurus, or whatever you want to call it. They are my inspiration and motivation.  I only hope someday I can build a business like theirs…..  So here we go!

#1.  Marie Forleo  – Marie is at the top of my list because I have been an avid follower of hers for a few years and she is just becoming more and more amazing.  She has created a multi-million dollar business with her book “How to Make Every Man Want You”, Rich Happy and Hot B-School, MarieTV, and just being plain amazing at what she does.  I watch her show MarieTV every Tuesday which is called Q&A Tuesday.  She responds to questions that people send in and she does it with simplicity, charm, and of course entertainment!!  Check out her story here to learn more about her!  One of my top favorite quotes of Marie’s is “Everything is Figureoutable”.  This is so true and simple, there is really nothing that you can’t figure out.  If you can dream it, you can do it.  Here is an example of one of her top-notch videos, “The Single Most Important Factor of Your Business”.  Watch it and get hooked.  Enjoy.  :)


#2.  Ramit Sethi  – Ramit is just brilliant and I mean BRILLIANT!  I love Ramit because he all about psychological hacks!  And I love studying the psychological side of business and how its the biggest factor of how we all work and make sense of things. He works his butt off and puts out top notch work, digs really deep and is quite frank in how he speaks.  I think he is a revolution all on his own, he knows what he is doing and he is damn good at it!!  I recently bought his book “I will teach you how to be rich” which I haven’t finished yet.  But so far this book is just simply amazing and clear cut. I have read his website, emails, videos and he just simply amazes me at how he does things.  I have attended quite a few of his live webcast lectures which are just full of real, legitimate, practical advice.  He has a mathematical way of looking at things, and creates hacks and processes to find the best way to do things!   He is hilarious too!!  One example that cracked me up was him yelling at all the idiots on live lectures. There is a chat box just full of people asking questions and posting dumb crap. Ramit says “If you just here to chat and make friends, go on dating site, you are wasting your time here!”  HAHA! seriously I died laughing.  Anyway that is just a little glimpse of Ramit’s style and candidness. Check out his blog here and make sure to hand away your email to get all his top-notch goodies!!! He has some really good courses and they are very expensive, but his free stuff is so good I can’t even imagine how good his  paid content is. I have been sooo tempted to sign up, but that time hasn’t come yet for me.  Nonetheless, his free material is brilliant enough for now so I will just stay at a moocher status.  Here is an example of one of his fabulous videos and has recently inspired a new way of thinking for me.  Watch here >>>>>>  It’s titled “”Follow your Passion” is bad advice..Do this instead.”  Check it out and become amazed by Ramit. :)


#3.  Linda Wagner – Linda is a nutrition coach!  She believes in creating a healthy lifestyle not just following another short-term diet.  She has a few e-books, coaching sessions, and her blog posts.  I love her recipes as they are always a fresh new way to make something healthy and clean. But my top favorite part of her site is MoNdAY mOtiVAtiON. Yay!!  She posts a bunch of different links that have to do with health food, nutrition, personal development or just some type of inspiration!  Here is a link to here most recent MM post.  She even responded to an email I sent to her about a year ago  where I asked for advice on how to “follow in her footsteps” and where she got her education from, etc.  I totally respect that she willingly took some of her time to respond to my little email.


#4. Connie Chapman – First off Connie is completely beautiful, amazing, and authentic. (Also she is from Australia and I looove her accent.)  I have watched her blog grow and change, I could see right away she was very strong coach and will do great things. I got a chance to participate  in her  first run/trial 90 day program “The Transformation Project”.  During this time,  she left her 9-5 job to follow her heart and let herself follow her true authentic-self.  She has continued to grow after and she made a lot of changes to her website. Since has created an e-book, Awaken radio, and leads “The Transformation Project”, as well as 1:1 life coaching. I really admire her courage and authenticity and it is very inspiring to watch her become more and more successful.  You can visit her website here at .   Here is one of her recent vlogs that was inspiring to me.  Click here to watch!! 😀


#5. Food Babe (Vani Hari)  – Food Babe is just about everywhere right now. She is making big waves in the food industry and I would watch her closely as I believe BIG changes will happen.  She is on a mission to clean out our pantries and educate people what is really in their food.  She speaks with multiple food companies to find out what they really put in their products and share with the world.  She speaks with food corporations to help ban ingredients from being used at all.  Just last week it was announced that Kraft agreed to take yellow dye out of Mac N Cheese.  You can read the article here.  This is just one example of the waves that Food Babe is creating.  Here is a link to more articles on the subject, contact information for Kraft, and Vani’s delicious Mac N Cheese recipe which looks to “dye” for. hehehe. 😉 You can see her passion in all her work and I get very excited reading about the wonderful things she is doing.


These are the people that feed a little bit of my soul.  They all reach out to my various interests and passions: food, healthy eating, self-development, psychology, and business.  The one thing they all have in common is their love for teaching people and helping them become the best they can be. They give me hope, happiness, and motivation to become my best-self and create my own legacy.  I hope to one day get a chance to meet them all.   Here are some honorable mentions of other amazing people to check out.
