Just a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners out there – thanks for being part of the community of contagious encouragement.


Beautycounter is on mission to disrupt the beauty and personal care industry – we are committed to getting safer products into the hands of everyone by demanding better regulation and ingredient selection. We are coming up on our 4-year anniversary as a company, and to celebrate that, we are doing it up big in social activism to effect change. Please stay connected with me on March 4th as we march forth together to be advocates for safer and cleaner products for all.

If you are passionate about safer beauty and healthy living, and have also been dreaming of launching your own successful business, I want to invite you to join the movement of Beautycounter. To celebrate our march forth in activism and advocacy – and our demands for change on Capital Hill, I am doing something I’ve never done before: I am investing into four passionate, driven women who want to make a difference with their voice and with their business efforts. This isn’t going to be a simple mentorship, these four women will get consulting support from me weekly for four months so that they become real movers and shakers (and create a real income) in this space of education and safer products. The four selected will receive over $2400 in coaching from me, for free, but, there’s a catch, there’s an application process for this business opportunity. Because of the level of investment I will be making into these four go-getters and world-changers, I need to know that you are committed too. You must have at least four hours per week that you can commit to building a business and to being mentored and you must be absolutely on fire about making positive change in the world around you. Email me for the application details at trish@trishblackwell.com



If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far. -Daniel Goleman

When our emotional health is in a bad state, so is our level of self-esteem. We have to slow down and deal with what is troubling us, so that we can enjoy the simple joy of being happy and at peace with ourselves. -Jess C. Scott

Experience is not what happens to you–it’s how you interpret what happens to you. -Aldous Huxley

If we lack emotional intelligence, whenever stress rises the human brain switches to autopilot and has an inherent tendency to do more of the same, only harder.  Which, more often than not, is precisely the wrong approach in today’s world.

-Robert K. Cooper

Never react emotionally to criticism. Analyze yourself to determine whether it is justified. If it is, correct yourself. Otherwise, go on about your business. -Norman Vincent Peale

Emotional intelligence is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how we think, feel, and act. It shapes our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. It defines how and what we learn; it allows us to set priorities; it determines the majority of our daily actions. Research suggests it is responsible for as much as 80 percent of the “success” in our lives. -J. Freedman

It’s your emotional intelligence that keeps you from the life you want to live. Intellectually we know what we want, it’s our emotions that often get in the way.


Know where you stand, know what you want to work on, know how you want to feel in the future and how you want to approach life.

  1. How aware and intuitive are you of your emotions? 1-10
  2. How flexible are you in your emotions? 1-10
  3. Are you able to step back from a situation emotionally to evaluate rationally? 1-10



Pre-program yourself to choose the emotions you want to live out by first being aware of which emotions you most value and which ones edify you on your journey of life.

Which emotions do you want to be part of your make up?
















How involved have you been in choosing your emotions in your life?

What emotions surround you when you think about the future in regards to your goals and dreams?



The essence of this 7-day Quick Confidence Boost is to reset your thinking and the power of your own self-actualization by giving you the tools and steps you need, in just three minutes per day to choose confidence.  Confidence is a choice, and with the Quick Confidence Boost, you’ll learn that there are seven layers to that choice and to making it more automated for yourself so that you start living life without self-doubt, any nagging insecurities and with full surety in having the freedom to be yourself.

Over a period ofseven days, you will receive one email per day from me.  Each email will have a quick, three minute video with three summary points and two questions-of-the-day for you to use in your own reflections, meditations, journaling or prayer.   Make it a priority to watch the videos – even when it doesn’t feel like it, you always have three minutes in your day, and part of prioritizing your own personal growth is a subconscious message you are sending to yourself that you do have more choice and control in life that you previously thought.  You run your day, you run your thoughts, you run your confidence – you can do this!

I’m excited to get started with you – and, if for any reason, you have issues receiving any of the videos, don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know immediately by emailing me directly at trish@trishblackwell.com.  I am here to serve you as your confidence coach because I know that, equipped with confidence, and a confidence boost of this nature, you can do anything in life and that you will be unstoppable as you courageous pursue contributing to this world in a way that matters!
