In this episode of Confidence on the Go we’re chatting about:

  • What personal independence is and how to get more of it in your life
  • Why leveraging your personal independence can leverage your happiness

  1. I am capable and confident, able to do multiple hard things at one time.
  2. I am a vessel of resilience and growth.
  3. I am fearlessly forging my own path with fortitude.
  4. I am limitless in my thinking and capable of overcoming anything.
  5. I am a leader and I trust my growth and intuition.



Perfectionism leads to procrastination, procrastination leads to powerlessness.   I want more than that for you, which is why I’m dedication this upcoming month of coaching and strategic content in The College of Confidence to “overcoming perfectionism.”  If you join us now, I am confident that you will break the chains of perfectionism this month and you will leverage your inner power and strength in a way you never imagined possible.

I know it might be too long to use as a listener of the episode, but I still wanted you to see the blog post I was able to write because of you –


Cliff notes: I recently came out of a very dark season and was at a crossroads in life. I suffer from body dysmorphic disorder and during the height of my paranoia, I convinced myself I had alopecia, shaved my head and started wearing wigs. It took nearly 7 months to gain the confidence and mental capacity to ditch the wigs and rock a very thin buzz cut.

And to my surprise, the buzz cut has been warmly received – even by strangers and guys! I have a date tonight actually. And although my journey is no where near over, I’m learning to love myself better than ever before as my hair grows out.

More than anything Trish, I want you to know that I decided to continue to live because of your show. Confidence on the Go, which is now part of my morning routine, has breathed life back into my lungs and has brought God back into my life. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank you enough.

Your Philadelphia friend,
