Confidence is a skill that anyone can build. It doesn’t have to be hard, but it does take work.

I’ve been putting in the work to build my self-confidence since 2016. Before then, I was shy and extremely insecure about myself. I suffered from anxiety and depression due to my lack of self-confidence. One major factor contributing to my lack of confidence was the toxic environment that I worked in. It was affecting my emotional as well as physical well being. However, I was too afraid to leave because I didn’t believe in my ability to succeed. When I was at my lowest point, I somehow found the courage to leave this job. I can’t point to one thing in particular that convinced me I could do it, but I am thankful every day for making that decision. After leaving that job, I made it a goal to continually strive for self-improvement. I believed in myself, but I knew I was going to have to change my lifestyle if I wanted to live a confident, healthy, and happy life.

I drastically improved my well-being and self-confidence by…

  • Practicing meditation
  • Learning about the power of habits
  • Rewiring my mindset
  • Creating goals, plans, and schedules
  • Developing mantras
  • Eliminating certain foods and drinks from my diet
  • Investing in proper skin care products and committing to a skin care regimen
  • Scheduling time for fitness every day
  • Challenging myself to try new things
  • Finding an accountability group


Now, I successfully run my own business and live each day with confidence, love, and gratitude. I am extremely proud of how much progress I have made and I want to help you do the same!

Based on the research I have done and the lessons I have learned regarding confidence, I have designed my 7 Day Kickstart to Build Confidence course. I believe this course will help anyone to get on the right track to creating a confident life.

7 day confidence kickstart guide


DAY 1: Establish a confident mindset

  • Create your confidence mantra
  • Make your mantra a habit by linking it to your anchor habit (an existing habit that you already do every single day without thinking about it)
  • Find and follow mentors, whether online or in real life, that inspire you to build your confidence


DAY 2: Find your focus, set goals, make a plan

  • Sit in a relaxing environment, free of any distractions
  • Brain dump – get everything out of your mind
  • Find your 30-day focus
  • Define your top 3 goals based on this focus
  • Create deadlines for your goals and mark them on your calendar
  • Turn your brain dump into a realistic to-do list
  • Subdivide to-do list at the start of each week

DAY 3: Disconnect from distracting technology

  • Don’t waste time investing people that don’t invest in you
  • Unfollow social media accounts that cause you to feel negatively
  • Optimize your smart phone for productivity: only place apps that you absolutely need on the first page


DAY 4: De-clutter your environment

  • Clear out your fridge and pantry
  • Make a neat and clean workspace
  • Give your bedroom a refresh


DAY 5: Meal plan + schedule fitness

  • Organize your grocery shopping list & schedule
  • Schedule physical activity every day
  • Choose your skin care regimen and commit to it


DAY 6: Optimize your skin care routine

  • Always follow a skin care regimen: cleanse, tone, correct, moisturize
  • Invest in your skin care products
  • Sunscreen is the number one anti-aging treatment out there


DAY 7: Try something you’ve never done before

  • The quickest way to build confidence is to do what you are afraid to do
  • Get outside your comfort zone; don’t think just do it
  • Find an accountability partner

  • This would make a great downloadable for those like me who need these daily reminders. Thank you for this. It is simple but effective.
